What do you get when you cross a goat and a sheep? (This isn't a trick question.)
Meet Butterfly the "geep," she's the offspring of a female sheep named Momma and male pygmy goat named Michael, and she was born at MyPettingZoo.com's facility in Arizona.
"We were not even aware that [Momma] was pregnant because we don't have a male [sheep]," Priscilla Motola, owner of the petting zoo, told Azcentral.com of the surprise arrival, which is believed to have happened on Sunday.
We all can't be as crafty as Ian Ziering.
Not only has the former 90210 star landed at the helm of a career-catapulting franchise like SyFy's Sharknado, but his character in the tongue-in-cheek thriller, Fin Shepard, comes up with the most magnificent way to bring down the weather system spewing sharks in the sequel, Sharknado: The Second One, which aired on Wednesday: He throws a tank of Freon inside of it and when a shark swallows him whole he chainsaws his way out. Pure genius.
They may not be king of the jungle, but to us, kangaroos have a certain mystical quality – like that of Kanye, Kim or any K-named celeb for that matter.
So, when National Geographic asked us if they could bring a gray kangaroo to our New York City offices to promote their new special Urban Jungle (airing Aug. 3 at 9 p.m.), we were more than happy (hoppy?) to oblige.
Her name was Ingrid and she definitely stole our hearts – and any ounce of remaining productivity we had on a Thursday morning. As she hopped down our halls with a GoPro camera, hordes of people gathered to catch a glimpse, a selfie, or any other evidence that the Australian native was actually on the 29th floor of our usually quiet office building.
Home. Some pets never have one to call their own. We'd like to help change that by introducing you to an extraordinary adoptable pet every week. Today, meet Boots, a handsome 6-year-old tabby who is destined to be an Instagram star.
This adorable guy has been at the Mt. Pleasant Animal Shelter in East Hanover, New Jersey, for quite a while after being plucked from an overcrowded shelter – and no one can figure out why.
"He is incredible: laid-back, friendly, affectionate, and likes other cats. He gives the best headbutts and loves to get massages," says development coordinator Abby Berenbak. "He has a fan following at the shelter where he is adored by the masses."
A fisherman has caught a rare lobster that's bright orange with dark blue spots.
This is a weather advisory: The purr-fect storm is coming. And we're not kitten – this one is big.
If the idea of tuning into Sharknado 2: The Second One Wednesday night on Syfy (9 p.m. ET) has you feeling under the weather, then this parody is definitely for you.
It was a road less traveled by Jeff Kopp and his dog, Bobby.
But something inspired the pooch to take a different route down Marion Road on Monday in Diamond Lake, Michigan, and it's a good thing that Kopp obliged.
The dog pulled his owner to a satellite dish just three feet away from the dirt road where a newborn baby had been left.
"I saw what [looked like] a rabbit at first," Kopp told WOOD TV8. "Then it moved. That's when I started yelling."
The hours-old baby girl, whose umbilical cord was still attached, was lying in the fetal position with leaves on her face, according to Kopp's daughter Cathleen Neal, who ran to her father's aid along with his wife.
