Owls are truly majestic creatures – there are no two ways about it. They are certainly one of the most unique-looking members of the bird community – and are often highly symbolic in many cultures around the world. What’s more, is that they, like any other creature, need their beauty sleep.
And you’ll be surprised by the lengths they will go to in order to get a well-earned nap. This owl was happy to perch itself onto a branch, and then use its own body as a pillow to rest its head – upside down! When you consider how much an owl can rotate its head, this isn’t the most surprising image in the world.
Mom! Charlie Bit Me!
Have you ever seen the video that went viral on YouTube many years ago? You know, that one where a baby bit his brother's finger, triggering the adorable response, "Ow! Mom, Charlie bit my finger!" Well, we may have just found the vulpine remake of this classic clip.
Here, we can see two beautiful fox cubs walking in the woods. Then, all of a sudden, one of the siblings decided to clamp onto the other's front leg with their fangs. Clearly, the recipient of the bite is not impressed in the slightest and is even shocked by the audacity of the move.
Elephant Playing Some Elefunk With His Trunk!
It is common knowledge that elephants have the longest proboscis in the world. In other words, they have really big noses! But can we even count trunks as noses? Well, they perform basically all the same tasks that a nose would.
But what makes elephant trunks so special is that they can make loud, rambunctious noises as if they were some kind of trumpet. Imagine getting up close and personal with the end of this bad boy, you'd probably lose your hearing for at least a few weeks. Besides this, we can't help but feel a warm tingly feeling by looking at these beautiful, gentle giants.
Someone's Gotta Carry the Baby
It doesn't matter where you are in the animal kingdom. If you are a mother, and you have a baby, you are probably going to carry it with you to shelter or safety. While humans usually do this with their hands (or carriers of some kind), mammals and birds are more likely to pick up their babies with their mouths, as this provides them with the most grip.
In this picture, we have found an animal that uses both their mouth and their "hands." This chipmunk is a proud mother and will do whatever it takes to get her baby to a new nest.
I Just Need a Five-Minute Break
Whenever you go on a long hike, it is important to take regular breaks to catch your breath and have some refreshments. This also applies to animals who aren't necessarily human. All creatures that naturally live in the wild will spend many hours searching for food and on their travels.
Take this badger, for example. They got to a point in their journey where they realized that they just weren't clean enough to carry on. So they immediately sat down and started grooming away. It's just a shame about the position they were in when the photo was taken. That is one responsible (and funny-looking) badger.
