incredible animal friends

PUP BABYSITS PIGLETS Oranienburg, Germany The litter of boar piglets living at the Lehnitz Animal Sanctuary loved trying to get piggyback rides from their best bud, Baby the French bulldog. “Sometimes when the animals romped around, one of the boars would try to scramble onto Baby’s back,” sanctuary worker Norbert Damm said. “Baby would playfully shake the piglet off.” The football-size boars arrived at the sanctuary where the dog lived after they were found alone and freezing in a nearby forest. When the pooch saw the shivering newborns, she ran right over. “Baby cuddled with them, just as their mom would’ve done,” Damm said. The pup stuck close to the pigs from then on. Eventually the boars moved to a nature reserve. But for a while the fuzzy crew enjoyed dashing around the…

guinness world records

ITTY-BITTY KITTY Lilieput may be the world’s shortest cat, but she doesn’t let her other feline friends get in her way—she just runs right under them! Lilieput, who is a breed of cat known as a munchkin, is less than six inches tall at her shoulders. That’s barely taller than a soda can. EYE-POPPING RECORD! Your eyes might bulge when you see this. Kim Goodman can pop out her eyes almost a half inch beyond her eye sockets. Goodman discovered the talent when she was accidentally hit on the head (she wasn’t hurt) and now can pop her peepers anytime she wants. This is definitely something you have to see to believe. TOWER OF TOOTHPICKS It makes sense that the world’s tallest toothpick structure looks like the world’s tallest building. Stan Munro used more than…

amazing animals

Silly Seal Sniffs Eel Lisianski Island, Hawaii This seal nose a thing or two about getting into trouble. The Hawaiian monk seal pup was spotted lounging on the beach—with an eel hanging out of its nostril. Scientists approached the seal, gently held it down with their hands, and then pulled the two-and-a-half-foot dead eel out of its nose in about a minute. “The seal didn’t feel any pain,” says Charles Littnan, director of the Protected Species Division at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration in Hawaii. “In fact it didn’t seem to care at all.” Scientists have since found three other young seals with eels in their noses—and they don’t know why. But since eels are on the seals’ menu, the mishap probably happened when the youngsters were hunting. “The pups aren’t sure how…

animal geniuses

Chickens are dumb. If there were an intelligence ladder, they’d be perched near the bottom. Foxes would sit on a rung higher than turtles. And chimps would outrank all animals except humans—who rule from the top. At least that’s how scientists used to think. But that thinking has changed. Why? Because no one can design an intelligence test that’s fair for all creatures. Two-handed chimps can learn sign language. But robins can’t—they only have wings. Goldfish would fail at tree climbing but earn A’s in swimming. “I really don’t make cross-species comparisons,” says Marc Bekoff, a scientist from the University of Colorado in Boulder. “Dogs do what they need to do to be dogs, and foxes do what they need to do to be foxes.” That said, animals can demonstrate some surprisingly…
