Listen up-if you thought dolphins, sea lions or even otters were the most intelligent creatures under the sea, you ain’t seen nothing yet! Let me introduce you to the mimic octopus. Just over half a metre long, the mimic octopus is capable of impersonating other sea creatures (such as poisonous fish, jellyfish and sea snakes) in order to avoid danger. In fact, most of the creatures the mimic octopus imitates are poisonous.

If you live in an apartment with dogs, you don’t have the luxury of opening the door for them to do their business on the back lawn. And if you live in a city where it either snows in the winter or fries in the summer, you’ll know how frustrating it can be to take your dog outside every few hours. That’s why there’s a new design on the market that makes toilet trips a breeze.

Winners of the ninth annual ‘They ate what?’ competition shows us just what animals chew on (and get stuck inside)

Rachel Oakley Contributor

By Rachel Oakley in New Trends on Monday 8 September 2014

Believe it or not, there’s a competition (in its ninth year now) named ‘They Ate WHAT?’, where vets are encouraged to send in X-rays of animals that have some rather unusual objects stuck inside of them. We all saw the dog who was found to have eaten 43 (and a half) socks, but here are the other animals of the contest, ranging from frogs eating ornamental rocks, to a 7-week-old puppy who had eaten a fishing hook-it was loaded with chicken liver!

This baby wombat became the subject of a Photoshop battle on Reddit and the results were hilarious

Zolton Editor

By Zolton in New Design on Wednesday 20 August 2014

Strike one up for the Reddit community. They got a hold of this sweet, innocent baby wombat and subjected it to a torrent of Photoshop wickedness, trying to outdo each other with their outrageous reinterpretations of the little fella’s character. Personally, we love the Keanu and the Star Wars ones in particular, but most of […]

This dog has a heart of gold: desperately tries to save fish by splashing water on it

Zolton Editor

By Zolton in Video on Thursday 14 August 2014

This all happened on a pavement in the city of Phetchaburi, Thailand, where a particularly nurturing dog came across an unconscious (dead?) fish in need of salvation. And help it did. Somehow cognizant of the fish’s needs, the dog was filmed frantically pushing small puddles of water towards its new friend in need. Sadly, all […]

Milo Sumner Contributor

By Milo Sumner in New Design on Saturday 9 August 2014

We don’t know about you, but for us there are few things more depressing than a zoo. People walking around in droves peering through bars at sad animals that have neither enough room nor enough company, hardly our idea of a great day out.

Zolton Editor

By Zolton in New Photography on Wednesday 6 August 2014

This tortoise has seen a lot. In fact, over some 180 years, Jonathan the giant tortoise has pretty much seen it all. Heck, when he was born, back in the early 1830s, Charles Darwin was still roaming the earth! These remarkable photos show the slow moving marvel in 1902 at his full adult size, which, […]
