Molting Mammals Use Rocks To Whale Away At Dead Skin

(OCEANS/WHALES) When you think about the act of molting, you’d typically imagine a hermit crab casting off its exoskeleton, or maybe a snake shedding its skin. But would you believe that a whale does the same thing? Recently in the Canadian Arctic, a couple of Bowhead whales were seen rubbing against boulders to exfoliate their skin. Read on to find out why these large sea mammals are in dire need of a spa day. -- Global Animal

Don’t Try This At Home! Man Risks Life To Save Rabbit From California Wildfire

(WILDLIFE/ANIMAL RESCUE) As destructive wildfires continue to tear across Southern California, destroying homes, forcing evacuations, and displacing thousands of residents, one unnamed man risked his life to save a wild rabbit from the blaze. The viral video of the daring rescue shows a Ventura County highway engulfed in smoke and flames from the Thomas fire, which is so far the most massive of the Southern California wildfires, consuming nearly 100,000 acres. The unidentified good Samaritan--who has since become a social media hero--pulled over along Highway 1 near La Conchita, California, and braved the flames to save the small creature from the hellish inferno. It goes without saying that getting this close to a wildfire is extremely dangerous and not recommended, but in these trying times, we need more examples of compassion toward animals. Read on to learn more about the daring rescue and view the footage in the video clip below. -- Global Animal

Hurricane Maria Animal Refugees Wag Their Tails For The First Time

(RESCUE DOGS/ANIMAL RESCUE) Even though it's only been a few months since Hurricane Maria devastated Puerto Rico, the lives of the dogs rescued by PETA's animal rescue team have changed dramatically. In Puerto Rico, PETA's team gave food and water to shelter animals and provided medical care to those who were injured. They returned to PETA's headquarters in Norfolk, Virginia, with the dogs in most need and worked with local shelters to give them a second chance at life. In this new video, you'll see many of the rescued dogs in their new homes, playing with toys, snuggling with their new guardians, and more—all things that they're doing for the first time in their lives. -- Global Animal

Bizarre ‘Legless’ Lizard Has T-Rex Arms

(ANIMAL VIDEOS/LIZARDS) If you thought this was a snake or worm, then think again! This is actually a Mexican mole lizard, a type of legless lizard, spotted in San Juanico, Baja California Sur.

Dog Wants Nothing To Do With Lee Corso

(FUNNY DOGS/PETS/CUTE ANIMAL VIDEOS) In his pregame show, sports broadcaster Lee Corso chose the Dukes to beat the Wildcats. But the ritual of wearing the team mascot's headgear certainly terrified James Madison's real mascot, Duke Dog. The poor bulldog wanted nothing to do with Corso, and I'm sure Wildcats fans would share the same sentiment post-pick. -- Global Animal
