These Mysterious Patterns On The Ocean Floor Have a Surprising Explanation

It’s not often that we look for evidence of extraterrestrial life at the bottom of the ocean, but if aliens did want to hide their existence from us, the ocean would be a pretty good place to do it. That’s why when researchers find something freaky on the ocean floor, my inner conspiracy theorist immediately starts shouting, “Aliens!” Take this beautiful, odd-looking geometric pattern on the ocean floor, for example. It was found off the coast of Japan’s Amami-Ōshima Island. YouTube / Marinestation Amami The pattern is made of sculpted…

Beautiful And Grateful Animals Who Received A Second Chance Through Prosthetics.

When an animal becomes sick, it’s easy to marginalize their needs by saying, “It’s not like it’s a human.” That harsh outlook fails to recognize the incredible gift of joy, love, and happiness so many animals bring to so many lives. This group of animals were all discovered while seriously down on their luck and in desperate need of new limbs. Their luck changed, however, when their human rescuers graciously gave them each a second chance at life. With the help of talented veterinarians, the animals were given new limbs….

Smuggling Paraphernalia Can Be Hard Work, Even When It Fails. This Is Ridiculous.

I figured smuggling would be an interesting line of work, but I had no idea just how strange it actually was. It’s difficult enough to get perfectly legal foods across borders, so naturally trying to bring illegal things into a country is even harder. You can’t just slap a fake mustache on a bag of cocaine and tell security it’s your Uncle Pete. (Even if that does sound outlandishly genius.) If you want to make money off of contraband, you have to be creative. Just take a look at some…

Animals are much smarter than most people give them credit for. When disaster struck within this herd of elephants, they didn’t act helpless. Instead, the adults elephants proved just how intelligent and caring they are. A tiny elephant calf attempted to cross the swollen Ewaso Nyiro in Kenya, but it proved to be too much for the little guy. The youngster was submerged in the swift current, but thanks to some quick thinking of his mom, wasn’t swept downstream. The little calf thought it would be okay to cross… Sandy Gelderman…

You Might Not Normally Call A Camel Pretty, But These Guys Are Rocking Amazing ‘Dos

Every year in Pakistan, Muslim residents celebrate Eid al-Adha: an observance of Abraham’s willingness to sacrifice his own son before God stepped in to stop him. For the holiday, a cow is usually used as the sacrificial offering with its meat then divided into three portions — one for themselves, one for their friends and family, and one for the poor and needy in their area. Sometimes camels, sheep, and other livestock are substituted based on what’s available in the region. However, these camels don’t have to worry about being…

This Vet Student Was So Passionate About His Work, He Did Something Crazy.

We trust doctors to do no harm and be all-knowing, but we sometimes forget they’re human. That’s why when they do something stupid, you have to remember their humanity. What this vet student recently did falls in the category of “incredibly stupid.” Do we forgive him for his idiocy? A Polish vet student stitched up a dog following surgery. He then decided to do something to show his girlfriend how much he cares for her. We Heart It He stitched “I Love You” into the dog he was caring for,…

These Elephants In India Get Their Own Spa Day Every Year. I’m Legit Jealous.

In the south Indian state of Kerala, elephants hold a high place of honor and are often seen in their Hindu festivals. The gentle giants are not only protected by the various temples, but also pampered once a year with their own spa-like rejuvenation ceremony. The event takes place in July, during monsoon season, and is part of the traditional Hindu medicine practices known as Ayurveda. The elephants are hosed down, scrubbed with herbs and oils and given treats. Elephants in this area of the country have been endangered since 1986, their population declining…

Their Differences Made These Animals Love Each Other…And It’s Amazing.

Animals have no problem opening their hearts and loving unconditionally. They love regardless of species or the differences between one another. Maybe we could all learn something from them. Or maybe we could all just say a collective “Awwwww!” 1.) Oh, the cuddles are SO real. 2.) Can fawns purr? 3.) Oh my, why a big, loving heart you have! 4.) Onward, steed! 5.) Life is toasty warm when you have best friends. 6.) Tell me again about how much you love me?? 7.) Mmm, tastes like friendship. 8.) Everyone…

This Bear Needed An Afternoon Snack, So He Hilariously Raided A Family’s Bird Feeder

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DTBT_ATF’); }); Surviving in the wilderness can be difficult for any species, so it’s okay to take a shortcut or two. I absolutely love watching all of those survival shows on TV. There’s nothing I enjoy more than sitting on my comfy couch, eating junk food, and covering up with a fuzzy blanket to watch survivalists struggle to find their bearings in nature. You do you, guys. I’ll just sit here and watch from the sidelines. But surviving in the great outdoors isn’t just an issue for humans….
