The Oregon Zoo in Portland, Oregon shared this amusing video of their young asian elephant, Samudra, having the best time ever in her own personal mud pit.
'You can't spell Samudra without mud."

Hummingbirds flap their wings about 50 times per second, so all we ever see is a blur around them as they zip around the yard. The folks from National Geographic mounted a high-speed camera on a hummingbird feeder to get some incredible footage of the tiny birds. Not only do we get to see them flap their wings, but also slip their tongues into the nectar up close!

Entitled, arrogant, lazy, spoiled, narcissistic. That's all we hear about young cats today. In the good old days, our cats were happy to hunt for mice and live in the barn. Now they expect to be fed organic freeze-dried turkey treats while they spend all day snapchatting, watching themselves on youtube, and doing things we generally consider to be a "waste of time".

As part of his very funny Twitter feed, Reverend Scott has hilariously imagined what dogs would say if they could call 911, what constitutes an emergency to a dog and what the 911 operators would say back to the dog in each situation.

When you lose your pet snake, all you have to do is put a heating pad out in the middle of an empty room - chances are Mr. Slithers be parked on top of it the next time you look. Apparently you can do the same for lost dogs, by frying up some sausages the last place you saw them.

Ed Annunziata, the creator of Sega’s Ecco the Dolphin series, once tweeted that while he himself has never taken LSD, he did draw inspiration from the work of neuroscientist John C. Lilly when conceptualizing his cosmic cetaceans. Back in the 1960s, Lilly ran a NASA-funded research unit where humans attempted to communicate with dolphins. Somewhere along the line, LSD got thrown into the mix, a researcher became sexually involved with a dolphin, and things generally got a bit weird.

Long-tailed macaques living near an Indonesian temple have figured out how to run a ransom racket on visiting tourists. The monkeys grab valuables, such as glasses, hats, cameras or, in one case, a wad of cash from the ticket booth, then wait for temple staff to offer them food before dropping their ill-gotten gains and dashing off with the tasty prize.
John Daniel was no ordinary gorilla. For starters, he was called John Daniel. And he had his own bedroom, drank tea and cider, and could purportedly do his own washing up. Villagers in Uley adopted the lowland gorilla after he was captured in Gabon by French.
In 1917, he was spotted for sale in a London department store by Uley resident Maj Rupert Penny. Penny's sister, Alyce Cunningham, raised John as a human boy in the village and used to send John on regular walks with the children of Uley junior school, according to Groom.

The sparsely vegetated plains around Garub on the eastern fringe of the Namib Desert is no paradise. The land is barren, the climate dry and hot, and vegetation is few and sparse. Yet, over the decades, a group of a wild horses have managed to adapt to the harsh conditions and made the desert their home.
Numbering between 90 and 150, these wild horses are one of the most isolated horse populations in the world, and the only feral herd residing in Africa.

Unlike humans, animals rarely faint from surprise, panic attacks or any other strong emotional stress. But there is a breed of goat that appears to do so.
When startled, the so-called "fainting goat" collapses on its side. They fall over, often with legs comically raised towards the sky. After laying motionless on the ground for a few seconds, they recover and bounce back on their feet as quickly as they fell. This curious reaction to fright has made fainting goats the popular subject for many viral, and often humorous, internet videos.

Once again, my favorite video topic: Interspecies love.
A Russian cat named Sonia adopted four orphan baby hedgehogs after their mother had died and raises them alongside her own kitten.

Since 2007 a group of European bison's (Wisent) has been brought back into a nature area in the dunes of Holland. They live a wild but secluded nature area. Outside of the breeding season you can wander around to find them grazing.

More of a discussion about filmmaking technique than the animals themselves but the show is all about wildlife. Clip RT is 8:47.
Planet Earth II is the most cinematic wildlife series yet. And Sir David Attenborough hasn't lost his Midas touch.
