Where to Find the Cutest, Most Amazing Animals on the Web
Joyce Park stashed this in Cuteness
That is a black bear getting a root canal, and this is a list of the places on Instagram, Twitter, and Tumblr to get your fix of cute, amazing, or freaky animals.
This is an amazing list that's potentially a huge time sink if you're having a cute emergency.
I learned about it from Samantha Oltman: https://twitter.com/samoltman/status/589162910498324482
I like the Fennecs!
The ZooBorns Instagram feed, which features photos of baby animals from zoos around the world, is mostly about animals at their tiniest and most adorable. (Fennec fox kits! Sloths! Pangolins!) So squeee away, but don’t forget that each time you get all mushy about an Emperor chick, you also, in some small way, cast a vote for preserving biodiversity and wilderness everywhere. It’s a penguin win-win.
Writer Jon Mooallem’s Twitter feed is a delightful collection of odd animal news bits, facts, and photos of animals and humans having strange encounters.
He also writes insane stories about the early-20th century plan to make hippo ranching a thing in the US, the ‘crazy ants’ that are taking over the Gulf Coast, and the surreal world of angora show bunnies. Also, he tweeted a photo of a koala playing a French horn.
