Sun Bear

Sun bears are the smallest bear species. An adult male sun bear is only half the size of an American black bear. They're named for the gold patch of fur on their chest. Sun bears spend a lot of their time in trees and build “beds'' on the branches out of leaves and sticks to...


Sables live in the thickest parts of woods and often dig their burrows by tree roots to make them more secure. They are very territorial and will claim home territories anywhere from 1.5 to 11.6 square miles (4-30 sq km). If resources are low, sables are able to travel 3.7 to 7.5 miles (6-12 km)...

Nile Crocodile

Nile crocodiles spend their days basking in the sun and their nights hunting for something to eat. They have their nostrils, eyes, and ears on the top of their heads which allows them to hide almost entirely underwater in order to sneak up on their prey. Nile crocodiles are very vocal and babies start making...


Chameleons are best known for their ability to change color, which they’re able to do by expanding pigment filled cells that are underneath their top layer of skin. They use this ability to blend in with their environment, which is why chameleons that live in trees are typically green and chameleons that live in deserts...


No two zebras have the same pattern of stripes and the farther south a zebra lives, the farther apart its stripes generally are. Scientists don’t know the exact reason for Zebras’ stripes, but some ideas are that they work for temperature regulation or camouflage. Baby zebras are able to walk in only 20 minutes after...


Despite the warthog’s name, the bumps on their skin are not actually warts and are instead just thick growths of skin. Warthogs are very social animals that live in groups of up to 40 and communicate with each other through a variety of noises that can work as warnings, threats, greetings, and more. Warthogs are...


Lions live in prides of between 3 and 40 individuals where the females do all the hunting and child rearing. Most of the animals they hunt are faster than them, which is why lions typically hunt in groups so that they can work together to catch their prey.  They have a very powerful roar that...


Hippos’ eyes, noses, and ears are on the top of their head, allowing them to see, breath, and hear while almost completely submerged under water. They’re strong swimmers and can hold their breath underwater for up to five minutes. Hippos aren’t normally very fast, but when they need to they can run up to 30...


Giraffes have sticky tongues that are up to 21 inches (53.34cm) long which help reach for leaves that are high up in trees while avoiding thorns. They only sleep for 30 minutes every day and stand while sleeping unless another giraffe is there to keep watch. Each giraffe’s spots are unique to them, just like...

Fennec fox

Fennec foxes are well adapted to the desert environments that they live in. Their big batlike ears radiate heat to keep cool and their thick fur coats provide protection from the harsh sun and work as insulation during the cold nights. Fennec foxes are able to jump up to 2 feet (0.6m) in the air,...

Letter from Haibu

Welcome to the wide world of me, Haibu! I’m so happy you found your way to my site - it’s always fun meeting new people. In fact, I’ve met a lot of new people in the past couple of years.

My best friend, Kanuux and I met on my crazy adventure in New York. He’s technically a seal but he’s a person in my mind. That might be because I can speak to animals like they’re people.

I met pretty much all the orphans at the Barrington House Orphanage in New York City but grew very close with Scotty, Olli, and Zeek. They’re always up for helping me help the animals but that’s only part of why I love them with my whole heart. They’re funny, courageous, empathetic, and my goodness I just appreciate them so much.

They helped me rescue Wiz, Eron, Bishop, and a bunch of other animals from a trafficking ship so now all of those animals are our friends too!

The connections that I have with my friends, both the animal and human kind, have helped me see the world with fresh eyes. I’ve seen the unique struggles and pain they’ve been through without losing love or hope in their hearts. I know that humans are all capable of love and getting along if we just take the time to listen to each other without judgment.

Everyone has a story, and everyone should feel safe sharing it. My friendships have shown me the potential our world has and that’s what I strive to make happen in my lifetime – animals and humans are meant to thrive together.

I hope we can be friends too and you can help me make this world a better place. If you haven’t checked out the world with all the fun animal content on the home page yet, get on it!
