Kristin Davis has adopted a baby girl – oh, did we mention she has a trunk?
The Sex and the City actress welcomed Ajuba, a baby female elephant, to her family while working with The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust in Kenya.
"Ajuba lives at @DSWT, I adopted her + u can too!" reads the caption for a photo she posted Tuesday on Twitter.
We'd like to propose a toast to this macaque.
Feeling extra busy? Overwhelmed? Just plain hot? We're clinking glasses with this spirited primate, who prefers to take his worries one sip at a time.
It's always happy hour for this critter in West Sumatra, Indonesia, where it resides at a local tourist attraction. The macaque is known to snatch soft drink bottles from visitors.
Just when you thought the Backstreet Boys couldn't get any cuter!
While on break from touring in China on Thursday, the reunited boy band – members Nick Carter, Brian Littrell, Kevin Richardson, Howie Dorough and A.J. McLean – made nice with a group of panda cubs during a visit to the Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding in the country's Sichuan province.
Judging from the photo, we're not sure which quintet had the better time: While each guy happily cradled his furry buddy, the little ones gleefully kicked back, too, relaxing and indulging in delicious drinks.
Now that it's officially summer, you're not the only one enjoying the warmer weather.
You're also not the only one simultaneously trying to beat all that heat.
Taking on Tuesday's rising temperatures at a Haikou, China, zoo, this ostrich decided to treat itself to a cold beverage: water! In what can only be described as the animal kingdom's version of running through the sprinklers, our feathered friend sipped on some H2O while delightfully being doused in stray droplets.
Robert Pattinson, Justin Bieber and more stars have taken to the press to voice their ire with the paparazzi – and this little guy knows just how they feel.
Tily, a 2-month-old Bengal tiger cub, was just looking to enjoy an afternoon to himself in his enclosure at the Fundación Refugio Salvaje animal refuge in San Salvador on Thursday. Instead, he had to spend it fending off photographers looking to snap shots of his adorable mug.
While we have to admit, we'd be tempted to click some mementos of our own if we got anywhere near Tily and that purr-recious face, the cub had its own ideas about how to best handle the impromptu photo shoot – with his teeth.
It was supposed to be just another excursion down the Zambezi River for travel guide Paul Templer. He'd been in the business for years, taking in the same scenery trip after trip – until he got a view he'd never forget.
Seventeen years ago, at 27, Templer was leading a group of clients and three apprentice guides down the river near Zimbabwe's Victoria Falls in kayaks when a male hippo he had encountered before attacked them.
"The solid whack I felt behind me took me by surprise," Templer wrote recently in The Guardian newspaper as part of an essay that has since captivated the Internet. "I turned just in time to see [apprentice] Evans, who had been flung out of his boat, flying through the air. His boat, with his two clients still in it, had been lifted half out of the water on the back of the huge bull hippo."
We've all been there.
Your mom's nagging you to hop into the tub and clean up, but what do you really want to do? Make a mess – and that's exactly what this 18-month-old elephant did.
A resident of the ZSL Whipsnade Zoo in England, Asian elephant Scott promptly returned to his enclosure's sand pit after being hosed down. The mischievous pachyderm rolled around in the pit, covering his entire body in sand, before taking it one step further and splattering sand all over himself with his trunk.
Though we're sure his keepers were none too pleased, we have to admit: how could something that makes someone look so happy be wrong?
Dogs, you're off the hook.
Months after we first started calling out canines around the world for their most indecent (and repeated) indiscretions in the online phenomenon that is dogshaming, it looks like it's someone else's turn to take a little Internet heat.
Introducing bunny shaming, an increasingly popular way for rabbit owners to air out their dirty laundry (often literally) on Facebook and Tumblr.
Feathers were ruffled at Monday's Arrested Development premiere. Literally.
As the show's most famous faces, from Jason Bateman to Portia de Rossi, stepped out to celebrate the much-awaited new season, it was a flawlessly coiffed, well-mannered ostrich who emerged as the night's biggest star.
The bird walked the red carpet with all the grace and composure of a veteran actor, so much so, we couldn't tell if the feathered star was just winging it. And no stylist, no problem: This buddy went all-natural for the event, which celebrated the show's comeback season launching May 26 on Netflix.
