You Say Bearcat – I Say Binturong

The Binturong is also called the Palawan Bearcat, Asian Bearcat, Bearcat. However, it’s neither a bear nor a cat! LOL…It just resembles both of those animals. To me, it looks like a large raccoon species. It, too, is an arboreal species that is nocturnal – instead of sleeping in a nest of sorts, it simply sleeps on branches of rainforests in Asia, India & Indonesia. Although it is classified as a carnivore, it is omnivorous! It eats mostly fruit, but has been known to dabble in eating eggs, small animals like rodents and birds, shoots and leaves. Binturong are known for their happy chuckling [ ... ]

Kalypso – My Diva Red Cap Oranda Goldfish

My fish is a Diva! I’m not kidding either… Let me tell you a story about what just happened in the past few days… It has been an extremely busy week, and I didn’t feel like cleaning out Kalypso’s 10 gallon fish bowl. She has 2 filters with bubbles and a floaty fish toy that she loves snuggling and pushing around the bowl. Kalypso has grown quite a bit in size since I got her in the spring. I’d say she’s more than doubled in size. So, I got this new 10 gallon bowl just for her as an upgrade from her 5 gallon [ ... ]

Most Endangered Large Mammal on Planet Amazingly Caught on Camera

Exotic Animal Newsflash: Remote infra-red wildlife camera traps caught footage of the world’s most rare rhinoceros in the Ujung Kulon National Park in the jungles of Java Island in Indonesia. The first of any footage collected in 5 years of the Javan rhinoceros, a mother and her calf were caught unawares by this “eye in the jungle”, but the mother did not like the looks of the camera and charged it, and head-butted the camera, knocking it down causing any more footage to disappear. However, the camera was retrieved with the great night-time footage that ensued prior to the “TKO”, which will be [ ... ]

What in the World is a Pangolin?

I had never even heard of a Pangolin until this post was requested by one of our readers, Kenney…Thanks!

Photo left: A pangolin invading a termite mound for food They are nocturnal and use their amazing sense of smell to find insects to eat.
