10 Photos That Prove The Praying Mantis Is The Most Badass Insect On Earth

10 Photos That Prove The Praying Mantis Is The Most Badass Insect On Earth

Blog
googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('VN_PG_DTAT_ATF'); }); When it comes to the animal kingdom, the undisputed champion is the sloth (in my personal opinion, anyway). But what about when it comes to insects more specifically? I would like to nominate the praying mantis for the title of "Most Badass Bug."They might not seem like much at first glance, but they're scrappy and they fight creatures much bigger and stronger than they are (and often win). Just have a look at some of these photos and videos. I think they'll make you understand my logic. When a praying mantis sets its sights on you, you don't stand a chance...especially if they catch you off guard, like this poor lizard. Reddit /...
Sweet Dog Is Extremely Excited To Walk Again Thanks To His New Prosthetic Legs

Sweet Dog Is Extremely Excited To Walk Again Thanks To His New Prosthetic Legs

Blog
googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('VN_PG_DTBT_ATF'); }); Cola is one happy dog. The nine-month-old pooch can finally walk, run, and play once again after being fitted with prosthetic limbs. Sweet little Cola lost his front legs after being brutally attacked by a neighbor in retaliation for chewing on a pair of shoes the man owned. The neighbor -- wanting to punish the pup -- severed Cola's legs with a sword. The world is a disgusting place.Had it not been for the Soi Dog Foundation and their fast-acting animal responders, Cola would not be alive today. He can now walk again thanks to prosthetic limbs supplied by the specialist dog clinic. I just feel like the human race doesn't deserve dogs. They are so selfless, pure, and fu...

I'm pretty sure there is nothing cuter in this world than baby otters, and these two little fluff balls going nom-nom-nuts over their breakfast absolutely prove that statement to be true.Posted by Spanish television host and animal lover Frank Cuesta, the tiny rescued pups in this video make the most adorable sounds while chowing down on a mix of dry cat food and milk.

This Is The Last Thing He Expected To Find Outside His House. But You Have To See What Happened.

This Is The Last Thing He Expected To Find Outside His House. But You Have To See What Happened.

LIFE
When Reddit user powerbookguy came home the other day, this is probably the last thing he expected to find outside of his home. But it's also the most (tragically) adorable thing he could've imagined too: a flock of baby ducks, without their mother in sight. He called his wife and said, "I'm bringing home 7 baby ducks! Hop online and figure out how we keep them alive." And here's how it all went down, in his words: I came up over a hill to find the momma duck dead and the babies scurrying into the road to get to her. I pulled a quick U-turn and shooed them off the road. They huddled by a closed garage for warmth. Reddit I quickly discovered I had nothing in my car to transport ducks (won’t make that mistake agai...

This Lion Looks Ferocious But He Refuses To Drop His Blankie For The Cutest Reason

When you think of an animal shelter, you probably picture a place where rescued cats and dogs stay until some kind soul takes it upon themselves to adopt them. The majority of our nation's shelters are just like that, but there are also organizations that house more...exotic animals. After all, dogs and cats aren't the only ones who need somewhere to stay and rehabilitate after years of abuse and neglect. That's where places like In-Sync Exotics Wildlife Rescue and Educational Center come in. Lambert was illegally purchased by a family in Texas who wanted to give him to their children. Why? Well, because they liked "The Lion King," of course. (function(d, s, id) { var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0]; if (d.getElementById(id)) return; js = d.createElement(s); js.id = id; js.src...

How This Is Possible Is Beyond Me… But Watching It Happen Is Just Amazing. WOW.

LIFE
Meet Sulo Karjalainen, or as he is better known in his native Finland as, "Bearman". The 73-year-old runs Kuusamo Large Carnivore Centre with his brother Jalo, which has been home to more than 20 orphaned brown bears.

This Is What Happens When A Flock Of Sheep Takes A Wrong Turn…Hilarious!

This Is What Happens When A Flock Of Sheep Takes A Wrong Turn…Hilarious!

Blog
googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('VN_PG_DTAT_ATF'); }); Norway's beautiful landscape is a treat for thousands of sheep who get to wander it as part of a longtime tradition of letting sheep and lambs roam free. But sometimes, a flock can get a little bit lost when traversing the mountainous terrain.That's exactly what one man caught on video when one morning, at 6:15 a.m., he woke up to the sound of countless bells outside his farmhouse. What he found was a flock of sheep walking down a road...in the opposite direction they normally go. Who knows, maybe it was the sheer beauty of the scenery around them that confused them, but thankfully, one sheep with an excellent sense of direction was there...
