When The Stork Gets The Wrong Address…

chaos can ensue. Like that time an elephant was delivered to a mouse – the baby was frightened of its mouse mom!

Fortunately for these rare Amur tiger cubs, Cleopatra, the Shar Pei mom, took them in like they were her own.


Cleo’s Shar Pei puppies are happy to have their new littermates, Clyopa and Plyusha.




The stork gets to keep his job (for now) and you can get the whole story and a peek at a few more photos of the blended family at SF Gate.

THIS JUST IN: White Tiger Cubs

Ukrane’s Skazka Zoo welcomed four screeching, stumbling, sloppy bundles of rare white tiger, of which only 100 are thought to be left in the world. They may have picked up their messy eating habits from Mom (see end of video).

And Lion Makes Three

Yep, nothing to see here, just your normal family: Mom and Dad, a dog, a bunny… and a lion cub. When Simba became ill, zookeepers cared for him at home, where he befriended Monty the dog and Thumper the rabbit.

For The Love Of Ginger!

To start, let us observe the domestic ginger.






Now, a wild ginger.


Finally, a non-biased ginger.

Ginger lovin’ had me a blast! Ginger lovin’ happened so fast! Thanks to Kira, Johann S. and Diagonal View, met a ginger crazy for me! Met a ginger cute as can be. Well-a well-a well-a!

Gee, We Just Had Cupcakes at Mine

Bet your going-away party wasn’t as awesome as this: On his last day with four lion cubs, this “Men of C.O.” calendar candidate gets in some serious snuggling.

Who Ordered the Jumbo Tub O’Cubs?

Get ‘em while they’re nice n’wriggly. (Nine-day-old lion cubs at Ukutula Lion Park and Lodge in South Africa.)

Lion Lullaby

Hush little baby, don’t lose hope
Mama’s gonna catch you an antelope

And if your tummy rumbles more
Mama’s gonna run down a wild boar

And if that boar’s too boring for you
Mama’s gonna net you a nummy gnu

And if that gnu just runs and laughs
Mama’s gonna hunt down a herd of giraffes

And if those giraffe should scamper east
Mama’s gonna bag you a wildebeest

And if that wildebeest’s too wary
Mama’s gonna slaughter a whole safari

And if that safari bails (how rude!)
Mama’s gonna send out for Chinese food


And if there’s a photo that makes your day
It prolly came from Flickr user Brian McKay

THIS JUST IN: Tigger Cubs!

The Taronga Zoo in Sydney, Australia recently unveiled three new bundles of bouncy, trouncy, flouncy, pouncy fun, fun, fun, fun, fun! The cubs are endangered Sumatran tigers, of which only 400 are thought to be left in the wild.

The baboons did it, NOT ME.

I SWEAR
