THIS JUST IN: Grazin’ Gallopin’ Giraffe

The new baringo giraffe calf at the Bronx Zoo just took her first steps out with mom, and she’s already getting busy — grazin’ in the grass, practicing with her new tongue, and galloping off on an impromptu butterfly hunt.


Wolf Pack Puppy Pounce

While exploring the Idaho wilderness, wolf biologist Isaac Babcock and crew encountered a surprising sight: wolf cubs playing near the trail. You can see more wolf activity on “River of No Return,” which premieres on PBS Wednesday, April 18. (Look sharp for puppy pounce action at 0:47!)

Oh, the (Tree-)Hugged Manatee!

Via (spotted by friend of the site Marilyn T.) comes the blorptastic story of an adorable baby manatee orphaned in the Amazon river, rescued by conservationists and nursed back to health. Sadly, orphan manatees are very common, but so long as they have our helping hands, they’ll have hope.

Hounded by Regret

I miss Randy. Kind of friend you only get once in a lifetime. You could talk to him, or not talk. Either way, he was totally there with you. He had that thereness, man.

Randy loved this kind of music. Lilting horn solo, aching with soul. Almost kills me to listen to it now, but I still do. I do it for him. To remember. To feel whole again.

And it’s times like these I wish I’d never chewed all his stuffing out.

Whoa, Dude, It’s Just Lunch

Buddy’s problem at speed dating events was that he was always a bit too speedy.

Belated thanks to sender-inner Jessica!

I Still Need The Training Wheels!

I’m still feeling kinda shaky here — maybe I could have a crash helmet, just for a little while? Well, how about air bags? Bubble wrap? Water wings? Anything?

THIS JUST IN: Perturbingly Petite Pup

Preciously petite or perilously puny? That’s the question for Milly, the three-month-old chihuahua from Puerto Rico who, at only two and a half inches tall, could set the Guinness world record as the world’s smallest dog.

The current record holder is Boo Boo, a Chihuahua from Kentucky weighing 5.9 ounces.

They have no modesty, do they Brinke G.?
