A bear cub has been found dead under a bush in Central Park, and authorities suspect animal cruelty played a role.
This tiger cub is only 25 days old, but the squirmy cutie has already figured out how to work the camera.
The unnamed newborn joined in on an adorable photo shoot in Hangzhou, China, according to Pix 11. During the session, the cub tried to strike some ferocious poses, but turned out looking more darling than dangerous. The rare black tiger was also joined by a dog, who allowed the wild animal to nurse from her when needed.
We've said it before and we'll say it again: We love our jobs.
But in order to keep them, we have to bring you things like this video of adorable puppies playing with toys in the PEOPLE studio.
The only reason we're still employed is because there is actually a reason for all this cuteness: Animal Planet's Emmy-nominated series, Too Cute, has somehow managed to get even cuter in its second season, with Too Cute! Pint-Sized, a 12-episode, half-hour series that begins Aug. 16 at 8 p.m. ET/PT (two back-to-back episodes air each week).
If there's one thing you remember from today, it should be this: there is nothing cuter than a set of panda triplets.
There is also nothing more rare. Born on July 29 at Guangzhou's Chimelong Safari Park in China, these 16-day-old siblings are the world's first surviving panda triplets, according to The Guardian.
The birth of the panda babies – who are being cared for by their mother Juxiao and a round-the-clock team of zoo nannies – is extra-special since the animals have such a low reproductive rate.
A New Hampshire woman who called police after stopping in a highway median to help some stranded ducklings plans to fight a $100 ticket.
Hallie Bibeau of Newfields tells WMUR-TV she was driving east on Route 101 on Friday when she had to slam on her brakes to avoid hitting the ducklings. She says their mother and several of the ducklings were hit by a car. The mother died.
We're used to celebrities dropping by our offices – but when a fox and an alligator paid us a visit recently, we all went a little wild!
The visit was courtesy of Martin and Chris Kratt, the brothers who star in PBS's Wild Kratts, an animated children's series about animals who live in places like jungles and swamplands.
With summer on the way, the penguins are ready to play!
A group of hatchlings born at the Oregon Zoo is on its way to joining the zoo's Humboldt penguin colony of 18 adults this summer.
The facility has welcomed five little ones over the past few months and even managed to capture one of the baby's hatchings on camera.
A Maine man in search of a valuable mineral cut open a dead porcupine on the side of the road and unexpectedly pulled out its baby.
Jared Buzzell, of Lisbon, says he was searching for wild mushrooms Thursday when he saw a porcupine get hit by a car in Minot. Buzzell says he'd heard that a valuable mineral deposit used in Chinese medicine formed in the stomachs of porcupines.
He then cut open the dead porcupine to search for the mineral and instead found the baby.
Parents, we all know Yuan Yuan's pain, don't we?
The giant panda thought she'd managed to get her cub, Yuan Zai, to bed – only to have her little one scramble away. And for a few precious minutes, Yuan Zai had her run of the enclosure at Taiwan's Taipei Zoo. (Start the above video at the 2:45 mark if you want to get straight to the action.)
But when Yuan Yuan realized where the 7-month-old cub had gotten to, she quickly came out and scooped her up by the fur. Try as Yuan Zai might, there was no convincing her mother to let her stay up late. In fact, Yuan Yuan kept a firm grasp on her baby girl until she fell back to sleep.
