This Cat Goes Bananas over Bananas

Bananas aren't just for humans and chimps. Cats love them, too! Or, at least, Mao does. He enthusiastically licks one, then chomps down.

Baby Giraffe in Dreamland

Kiango the baby giraffe was born on June 14, 2015 at The Fort Wayne Children's Zoo in Indiana. Staff members captured this sweet footage of Kiango dreaming giraffe calf dreams in his downtime.

Golden Retriever Teaches Puppy How to Slide

Going down the slide at the playground is so much fun! But the puppy isn't so sure. It looks a bit scary. So it's a good thing that Mommy is here to show how simple and safe it is.

When Puppy hesitates, Mommy does what's good for her and pulls her down by her leash.

Little Pup Lets Loose With Mega Sneeze



It's less like "Seize the Day" and more like "Sneeze Away" for little Roux the Pomeranian. This pup might be small, but his sneeze packs a mighty wallop! It may even register on the Richter scale. His human Jake Kulbreth of Louisiana luckily caught this moment on video. Gesundheit, Roux!

Hulk, the World's Largest Pitbull Has a Litter of Pricey Puppies

Hulk and his puppies | Image: Still of video by Barcroft TV

You may remember a previous Neatorama post about 173-pound Hulk, thought to be the largest pitbull in the world. The famous gentle giant is the pride, joy and family dog of owner Marlon Grannon, who breeds and trains protection and police dogs at Dark Dynasty K9 in New Hampshire.

There is an update in the world of Hulk since that post went live: he is now the doting father of eight adorable puppies. The litter may be naturally precious to Hulk and his puppy mama, but in the human world where money talks, each pup is akin to pitbull royalty, with a monetary value of between $30,000 and $55,000. 

By the time the puppies were born, most were already sold at a price of $30,000. Yet if the pups would go on to be trained by Grannon, their value would be in the neighborhood of $55,000 each.

Grannon's business caters to celebrities and other wealthy clientele worldwide, as well as law enforcement. Each dog is trained from birth and "lives together in a pack without fences, barriers or physical restrictions.” See Hulk and his puppies in action in the video below, and read more about him and his newly expanded canine and human family at the Daily Mail.

Dog Goes Cliff Diving


(Video Link)

Everyone at this cove in Malta was having a grand time, jumping into the clear blue water for a swim. The dog watched closely and carefully pondered joining in. Why not? Jump, little terrier!

While in the water, it occurred to the pup to play a bit of fetch.

Tiny Crosswalks for Animals

(Photos: Greta GedminaitÄ—)

Clinic 212, an ad agency in Vilnius, Lithuania, wants people to take care that our animals friends don’t get squashed when they cross human roads and pathways. To “show that we are not the only ones living in the city,” the agency made little road signs and crosswalks in the spaces that humans and animals share. 

Martynas Karpovicius came up with the idea when he saw a taxi driver almost run over a hedgehog. He and his colleagues responded on behalf of pigeons, cats, and ducks, as well as hedgehogs. You can see more photos and read about the project at the Huffington Post.

The Impressive Tricks of Rats Named Pepper, Blue and Puffin


YouTube Link

Abby Roeser demonstrates the cool tricks she’s trained her rats Blue, Puffin and Pepper to perform. The rats, who are happy to do the tricks in exchange for rewards like dog treats and dinner leftovers such as peas, are trained using a clicker. Very impressive! Now, hopefully I can remember how smart and cute that rats can be when one steps into the light in front of me as I'm walking around New York or some other large city at night! Via Laughing Squid

Animals Who Want To Be Photographers

(Image Link)

Animals are getting used to being in front of the camera, which means they’re starting to do research into taking their own selfies.

But until we humans invent cameras made for critters to control they’re going to have to share our equipment.

(Image Link)

Maybe a photographic partnership with animalkind would be a good thing for both parties, since they’ll be able to get their furry friends to come out and pose for us and we can teach them how to use the equipment.

But animals can be really pushy sometimes, so don’t be surprised if your photo partner tries to push you out of the way and do all the shooting themselves!

Cat Not Impressed by Baby Goats

Moo is a barn cat at Sunflower Farm Creamery. She’s a dedicated barn cat, keeping watch out for vermin and even sits and supervises goats when they give birth. When week-old kids Lady Bug and Princess Leia try to make friends, Moo makes it clear she just wants a little nap. While Moo has seen lots of goats come and go, everything is new to the bouncy goats.

(YouTube link)

What impressed me in this video is the relative size of the goats and the cat. Those are tiny little kids! Well, Moo is a pretty healthy size for a barn cat. After all, she lives in a creamery, and apparently gets her share of goat’s milk. -via HuffPo

This Hermit Crab Lives in a LEGO Brick

YouTube user Albizu Garcia visited a beach in Puerto Rico and found that a hermit crab had discarded a conventional shell for a stylish and functional LEGO brick. This should give him the ability to join with other LEGO crabs to create a larger structure. You can see the video here. Make sure that you don’t step on this crab, which is now a double threat to your feet.

Taylor Swift Pics, As Recreated By Doug The Pug

Taylor Swift has been the subject of media scrutiny since she became a star, and the paparazzi are always after her to see who she’s wearing and what she’s doing.

Doug the pug deals with similar paparazzi problems because he’s an internet superstar, but he doesn’t care what the TMZ crowd has to say about him because he’s a dog.

So what will all the paparazzi and those fans of fame think when Doug the pug channels Taylor Swift for a powerfully cute photo shoot?

Eh, they'll probably be too busy shooting pictures of Kim K's posterior to take notice, but that just leaves more Doug the pug for us!

Grizzly Bear Pushes A Translucent Cube With Woman Inside

Many bears dream of a day when they’re able to shove a human being inside something roly-poly, like a barrel or a tire, so they can roll that screaming human around the woods and show it off to their ursine friends.

Sadly, most bears will never get to experience the joy of rolling a human, but the bear in this clip is luckier than most, and he’s definitely luckier than the poor person in the cube.

(YouTube Link)

This video was supposedly shot as a promo for the Japanese show Sekai No Hate Made ItteQ!, but beyond its use as a promo video it should also serve as a reminder to humans- don’t believe bears when they tell you there’s candy at the bottom of the cube!

Confused Deer Screams At Laughing Humans

This facial expression and emission of sound from our mouths (and sometimes nasal cavities) we call laughing makes perfect sense to humans, heck it can even be contagious, but laughing is lost on most animals.

(YouTube Link)

Some animals see the baring of teeth as an act of aggression so laughing really gets their goat, but one poor, confused little deer in Nara, Japan sees laughing as a terrifying assault on her senses.

This video proves two things- deer oriented horror movies would star laughing humans as the monsters, and deers prefer dramas to comedies.
