A baby bandicoot in Mandurah, Western Australia just wants some cuddle time, and it doesn’t care who with.

The tiny creature, a marsupial native to Australia, was spotted curled up with a mother duck in a nest along with her ducklings, the Mandurah Mail reported.

The duck belonged to a man named Rex, who said he came across the unlikely trespasser on his property when checking on the nest and its eggs, which had not yet hatched

Even once the ducklings emerged, the bandicoot stayed put. “I went to check on the eggs and a little bandicoot had made its way underneath,” he told the outlet. “The mother duck hasn’t taken offence to the little fella.” Read more…

Whether it’s Tian Tian the panda who can’t get enough of snow-caked fur or two horses frolicking in the cold white stuff, winter has announced its presence. And everyone on planet Earth can either embrace it, or try to not hate its guts.

Don’t fear if you dislike the cold — these animals still give a ton of good, warm vibes.

A new species of deadly crab has been discovered in Brazil.

The craustacean was caught on film as it swung a knife and backed away slowly from the video camera, ready to strike at any moment.

While we’re unsure if the crab got what it came for, we think this is a great way for the species to fend off seafood-loving humans in the future.

For 24 hours, it dominated the Internet, grabbed our headlines, and stole our desperate little hearts.

Crowds at concerts can be pretty rude. They walk on you without thinking twice about it, howl at the performer in the middle of the set and even slobber. So it’s a nice change of pace to take in some culture around a more well-behaved group of music fans. In this case, dogs.

Legendary performance artist and musician Laurie Anderson performed for ruff-ly 50 pups in Times Square on Monday night. She played the tape-bow violin — an instrument she invented — at a frequency only dogs can hear. The humans in the audience had to wear headphones
