German Shepherd Steps up to Mother two Abandoned Lion Cubs

German Shepherd Steps up to Mother two Abandoned Lion Cubs

A mother lioness gave birth to two adorable cubs at the White Lion Park in Vladivostok, Russia. But shortly after, she rejected her two cubs. After the zookeeper shared a frightening video of the mother biting one her cubs, the staff quickly decided to remove the cubs from her care (or lack thereof).

Thankfully, the White Lion Park is home to a German shepherd who’d recently given birth to her own puppies. And the staff decided to introduce the lion cubs to the mama dog. They wanted to see if, by any miracle, the dog would adopt them. And it worked!

The staff were skeptical at first, but their efforts paid off. “It is interesting that this dog doesn’t like cats, yet she decided to accept the little African lions into her family,” said Agafonov, one of the cat keepers, according to The Daily Mail.

The cubs’ new adoptive mom even went as far as to share her milk with them. And the staff at the White Lion Park took to Instagram to assure the public that the dog’s milk was the best option. They said it’s nutritionally adequate for the cubs since they couldn’t be drinking their own mother’s milk.

It’s rare for a mom of one species to adopt and foster babies from another, but it just goes to show the connection we all have in this crazy world. And understandably, the photos of the unlikely family are quickly going viral online.

And while this unlikely pairing cannot last forever, they’re enjoying each other and their new family dynamic for as long as is safely possible.

Check out the video of the dog with her new cub pups below:

Man’s Porch Invaded by Group of Mountain Lions

Man’s Porch Invaded by Group of Mountain Lions

Andy Davis was up early one morning when he glanced out the door of his Conifer, Colorado home. And what he saw was something totally unexpected.

While Davis often sees wildlife near his home, like deer and elk, seeing a group of mountain lions on his porch was definitely out of the ordinary. According to Storyful Rights Management, Davis said this was the first time he had ever seen a mountain lion. And it wasn’t just one mountain lion, but four!

So, he put down his morning coffee, put his planned morning workout on pause, and grabbed his phone and began to record.

The mountain lions were casually exploring his deck, sniffing his plants, and weaving through his patio furniture. One even jumped up onto the porch railing!

Thankfully, Davis knew better than to go outside and confront them. Mountain lions are strong, and one, let alone four, could easily take down a human if threatened (or hungry). Plus, had he put himself in a position to be injured or endangered, there’s a chance authorities would’ve been called to kill the mountain lions. But, he did the safe thing and stayed inside and filmed for the rest of the world to enjoy.

People are Getting Succulent Christmas Trees this Winter

People are Getting Succulent Christmas Trees this Winter

With October approaching, the Holiday Season is almost upon us. First, there’s Halloween, then Thanksgiving, and finally Christmas. Since COVID-19 has changed things up this year, a lot of people have been looking forward to the coming of Fall and Winter – and the new hope of a new year.

Well, Fall is finally here, so that means it’s socially acceptable to start thinking of winter and all that it brings – like Christmas. And it’s never too early to plan for Christmas.

Moving into Christmas of this year, a lot of people are looking to change things up when it comes to holiday decor. Perhaps it’s the unique year, but many are second-guessing getting a full-sized, real tree this year. And that’s where these succulent trees come in.

There are actually a lot of reasons you may want to get a succulent tree to decorate for Christmas.

For starters, they save a lot of space. While there are some giant succulent trees, many are small, measuring just a foot in height. They’re perfect for tiny home or RV life. They could even fit into the van life scene if need be.

But beyond the handy size, succulent trees are also much more environmentally friendly. You don’t have to throw it out once the new year arrives and the tree can actually be taken apart to allow the succulents to be replanted individually. So, you get a cute Christmas tree for the holidays and some gorgeous succulent plants for months (or years) to come!

It’s a win-win and the animals and earth will be grateful.
