Congress Lifts Protection of Gray Wolf, Seen as Precedent?

USA (EXOTIC ANIMAL NEWS) – Sad news comes to the animal lovers out there, who are concerned about the world’s populations of endangered animals. 66 wolves were initially re-introduced to the Northern Rocky Mountains from Canada back in the middle of the 1990s. Today, there are approximately 1650 in the population. The issue is that the White House is ready to accept a budgetary bill including an unprecedented lifting of the Endangered Species Act protections for gray wolves in five US Western states, which has been a law in effect for 37 years, and it being the 1st time Congress has approached [ ... ]

A Few More Days to Participate in Adopt-a-Rescued-Guinea Pig Month

Exotic Animal News: The month of March is Adopt-a-Rescued-Guinea-Pig Month. As often as possible, it’s important we scoop up the pets that need homes from rescues. Not everyone has the ability or patience to work with a “damaged” pet to rehabilitate it or bring it out of it’s shell, but in the instances where a person can do so, most animal enthusiasts will agree to encourage this person. I, myself, haven’t seen a guinea pig rescues out there, but that would be because I haven’t actually searched for one, but when I searched today on Google, there were 226,000 results for “guinea pig [ ... ]

March is Dolphin Awareness Month

Exotic Animal Newsflash: The month of March is a month to celebrate and raise awareness of dolphins globally. They are extremely intelligent creatures with bubbly personalities. They are mammals, and are closely related to, but are not themselves, whales or porpoises. There are so many species of dolphin in our oceans that they are too numerous to name here, but there are a few that I will mention that are commonly misnamed as whales, but are actually dolphins in their own right. These include the “killer whales” (or orca), pilot whales, and the melon-headed whale. Very interesting indeed. So varied and marvelous they are, there is [ ... ]

Brand New Species of Deep Sea Worms – The Green Bombers

Exotic Animal Newsflash: Seven brand new species of deep ocean worms were discovered that actually cast green glowing body parts when they’re disturbed or attacked. The team was led by Karen Osborn of the Scripps Institution of Oceanography at the University of California, San Diego. Thought to be used as a defense mechanism to confuse predators, which are unknown as of yet, the  appendages glow green when they’re cast by the worm, and they will actually continue to be “let go” as they’re more and more disturbed. It’s hypothesized that Yup, that's right! I have always wanted to start an animal refuge of [ ... ]

They even recorded one of the sharks they tracked hanging out for 1 month at the mouth of the Amazon River. Animals are just full of surprises, arent’ they? What was most intriguing about basking sharks is that no one has ever seen a baby or a pregnant female or a basking shark giving birth. They measure up to 35 m long [ ... ]
