A photographer recently snapped shots of a pale-hued hippo standing out like a sore thumb among its pack in Zambia, and it had us daydreaming about all the other animals that are naturally blushing beauties – and beasts, like Australia's giant fluorescent slugs! As you'll see, pink isn't always pretty.

This 6-Week-Old Sumatran Tiger Cures the Work Week Blues

So what if you have to go to your job and work really hard all week? This baby Sumatran tiger was rejected by its mother for having a bum leg. (Perspective people, perspective!)

We all should be in awe of the work scientists are doing at this orphan sanctuary in Sumatra, Indonesia, where orangutans and other abandoned and endangered animals are being given a second chance. Thanks to the tireless work of their caretakers – who try to mimic the creatures' mothers by sleeping beside them – they are thriving and hopefully will one day return to the wild.

A marine science instructor snorkeling off the Southern California coast spotted something out of a fantasy novel: the silvery carcass of an 18-foot-long, serpent-like oarfish.

Jasmine Santana of the Catalina Island Marine Institute needed more than 15 helpers to drag the giant sea creature with eyes the size of half dollars to shore on Sunday. Staffers at the institute are calling it the discovery of a lifetime.

"We've never seen a fish this big," said Mark Waddington, senior captain of the Tole Mour, CIMI's sail training ship. "The last oarfish we saw was three feet long."
