Fat squirrel spotted eating McDonald's cheeseburger outside Florida location.
In the footage, the burger looks to be nearly the same size as the small animal..............

&$#@+** Potty-mouthed parrot posse kicked out of zoo for cursing at visitors
After being quarantined together for several days last month due to the coronavirus outbreak, the bold birds had apparently taught each other a colorful vocabulary of curse words.

... it just got to be like an old working men’s club scenario where they are all just swearing and laughing

Anyone want to adopt a 300 pound 2-year old "pet hog" named BACON?
He's good with dogs, but quite stubborn.

... It stayed for a few drops, around 10 minutes total, and then it took off.

“It basically just got out where it got in,” Alpiner said. “Right when I was doing another drop … looked out and kind of saw him fly off.”

A very sloppy sentimental one, if you like such things, or maybe it's one that your dearest and nearest might like.

Material from a gecko's foot might help you view videos more comfortably on your phone
This past week, another phone related new product dove into the Shark Tank. Flipstik can work as a kickstand giving your handset the ability to be propped up on a desk making it more comfortable to view videos in landscape (especially with your hands free). And Flipstik also uses a patented technology called synthetic setae that will allow your phone to stick on flat surfaces made of wood, glass, metal and leather.


No mention of how many Gecko's feet are needed for each///

‘We have a problem.’ Family finds unusual intruder in Missouri home — a ‘huge’ owl
“I come around a corner and I look up and that owl is up in the corner, wings fully spread. I don’t know if it was 4 feet, 6 feet. It looked, like, insanely huge,”

...the chimney’s flue was open and that the barred owl — the second-largest owl species in the St. Louis area — likely fell down the chimney while hunting,

There’s often a good reason rarely seen things are rarely seen, but that didn’t stop the Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks department from sharing one such oddity on Facebook.


It posted a close up photo of a ball of sawdust and explained it was 100% beaver poop.

Quokkas are also known as the short-tailed scrub wallaby, about the size of a domestic cat.

My dear Sir,

It is indeed an unexpected pleasure to renew our previous acquaintance, and I trust that in these inclement times that I find you in rude health.

Might I, by your leave, crave your indulgence, and enquire whether your good self has any knowledge of the whereabouts of my intended, the one and only Muriel Miggins.

I find myself bereft Sir, and uncommonly despondent with such a lack of information. So much so, that I shall shorty repair to the bar for a strong tincture of a suitable beverage, to steady my composure.

I beg to remain Sir, your most obedient servant,

Last heard (only last week) Muriel was still proffering her warm buttered baps to the crowds on the front on Saturday mornings.

Convivial felicitations Sir,

Yes indeed, that sighting pretty much concurs with my previous remembrances of the aforementioned Lady. Indeed, it brings back to mind memories of the times along Gasworks Lane in the twilight, when my knees were all a quiver at the sight of her warm dumplings.

I shall send a porter to acquire me a Hansom cab, and make my way to her Olde Eel & Pie shoppe, and see if I can catch her in the act of warming her delectables by the open fire. At this time of year it behoves one to acknowlege that it is the season for winter drawers on.

I Believe Sir, that the Oxford English dictionary will verify my spelling.

Tesla's German Gigafactory stalls again, this time due to hibernating snakes
Tesla hasn't had the smoothest road to construction in Berlin as it preps for a new Gigafactory in Germany, and now hibernating snakes, of all things, have created another speed bump. According to a Tuesday report from local newspaper Tagesspiegel, via Reuters, a German court ordered Tesla to quit clearing a forest just outside the capital due to the reptiles' elongated nap.
