“I snapped this photo of my res-q-tee pie Mei-Mei (May-May) and her bee-yu-tiful booper asking for some leftover turkey! Can you say no to this face? I can’t! Hope it makes it in before Nose-vember ends! Photo taken by her mum, me, Annie F.”

Happy Anniversary, Big P!

“And today is Poncho’s 1 year anniversary of coming to his new (and final) home. I adopted him from the shelter a year ago and he has brought us a lot of happiness, loyalty and surprises.
Adopt. P.S. You featured Poncho when he was adopted (Resqte Black Friday Edition.)”

It’s Nosevember In Norway, Too

unnamedHoly moly! Se på det nese! (“Holy moly! Look at that nose!”) Now that there is some massive Super Slobberknocker Action. Just…wow. Tell us, R & T:

“Dear Cute Overload, this is Aragon, also known as Snugglepumkin, or The Beast, kinda depending on his daily mood. He is a rescued great dane, who has such a fabulous nose that we felt it should be shared with the world. Happy Nosevember! Forever fans, Reidun and Thomas, Norway.”

Houston Monterey, We Have Splashdown!

This new Loggerhead Hatchling splashed into his new home in the Monterey Bay Aquarium’s Open Sea gallery late last week! The tiny turtle will stay at the aquarium for one to two years, while aquarists carefully rear it to a larger size and prepare it for release back into the ocean.

The North Carolina Aquarium at Pine Knoll Shores loans rescued turtles to aquariums around the country as a way to share the story of this endangered species while the youngsters grow large enough for release. In the wild, Loggerheads migrate long distances, so they’re particularly vulnerable to accidental capture by commercial fisheries. The turtles can become caught in shrimp trawler nets or entangled in longlines. The aquarium recently released its third Loggerhead back into the Atlantic, alongside other rescued reptiles from U.S. zoos and aquariums.

To stay updated on the journey of the newly released juvenile loggerhead, who has logged nearly 600 miles in just over a week, follow #TravelingTurtle on Twitter and Instagram.
