World Turtle Day Germany UPDATE

It ees a proven factoid that Those Of The Hard Shell Persuasion love nomming strawberries, as this classic shot shows. “Here I have a photo of our baby greek turtle Maya eating tiny strawberries. Since she’s an expert in doing that, I hope she’s cute enough for your page ;) Thank you for all the cuteness! Greetings from Germany :) -Becca.” (Up late at night in Germany, emailing C.O.)


Crumpet Auditioning For New Star Wars Movie

It seems that the Crumpster heard there was a new Star Wars movie in production, and wanted to be cast as an Ewok. Well, make it so!

Goin’ Home To The Place That He Belongs

Dateline, Grass Valley, CA.: People, prep the Kleenex, you’re gonna need it.

Mr. G. The Goat and Jellybean The Burro were rescued after years of living together, but went to two different rescue places. Mr. G. missed Jellybean terribly.

So they were reunited.

Spotted by Smedley Angel Fish. More at Like the song? It’s called “Home,” and it’s on The iTunes.

Ever Hoid Of A “Tree Kangaroo?”

Via ZooBorns comes the deets on the birth of a Matschie’s Tree Kangaroo, a bebeh female joey named Holly. She arrived at the Roger Williams Park Zoo in Providence RI. last fall.

Quoting ZB: “The Matschie’s Tree Kangaroo is indigenous to the rainforests of Papua New Guinea.”

“It is estimated that there are less than 2,500 tree kangaroos left in the wild, because of factors like habitat loss due to logging and mining, as well as hunting.” :(


Frostie The Snow Goat UPDATE

Everybody, our first story on Frostie The Snowgoat nearly melted the C.O. servers at Lawrence Livermore Labs. So naturally, we’re gonna try and do it again. Please meet Frostie and his pal…wait for it..


[Several of you also wanted to know about Frostie's rear hoofsters dragging on the ground. Kyle B. of Edgar's Mission addresses that below. -Ed.]

Frostie and Penguin-3
“Many thanks for your concern for dear little Frostie. Protection of Frostie’s hooves is something that is foremost in our minds..”

Frostie and Penguin-2
“..and was one of the initial points we discussed with our veterinary team after Frostie’s mobility cart was fitted.”

Frostie and Penguin-4
“Hooves are much tougher than soft paws and at this stage we are reluctant to strap them or do anything that may discourage Frostie from trying to use them.”

Frostie and Penguin-5
“The use of the cart is intended to assist with the return of full functionality to Frostie’s hind limbs…”

Frostie and Penguin-6
“…and each instance that he spends short, monitored periods of time in his cart sees him flexing his fetlocks and using his legs more and more.”

Frostie and Penguin-7
“Perhaps this is something you cannot see from a photo or short video clip.”

Frostie and Penguin-8
“We agree that if the long term prognosis was for Frostie to never regain use of his limbs…”

Frostie and Penguin-9
“…and if they lacked sensation they should not touch the ground…”

Frostie and Penguin-10
“…but we are pleased to say that is not the case.”

Frostie and Penguin-11
“…If the little guy’s progress can be maintained at its current rate….”

Frostie and Penguin-12
“..we hope that little Frostie will be without his wheels in a very short time.”

Frostie and Penguin-13
“Once again many thanks for caring about this dear boy.”
