Koalas have long arms and sharp claws to help them climb trees. They move very slowly and spend 18-22 hours sleeping every day. Scientists believe that this sedentary lifestyle is the reason that koalas have such remarkably small brains which make up only 0.2% of their overall bodyweight. 

Blue Whale

The blue whale is the largest animal in the world. Newborn blue whales weigh 2 tons, which is more than the weight of three grizzly bears, and in the first year of their life they gain 200lbs (90.72kg) every day. Typically, they’re slow, graceful swimmers with a speed around 5mph (8.4km/h)m but if needed can...


Orcas are very intelligent and social. They can communicate with a wide variety of sounds and each pod has unique sounds that allow them to recognize each other from far away. They also use echolocation in order to hunt and communicate. They can make sounds that travel underwater and bounce back to them, which allows...

Antarctic tern

Antarctic terns prefer to live on rocky cliffs and ice edges. They live in small loose colonies, usually with no more than 40 nests distributed widely over one clif. Antarctic terns fish by flying just above the water and diving just below the surface to catch fish and crustaceans and can even eat while gliding.

Snow Petrel

Snow Petrels breed further south than any other bird and have even been seen at the south pole. Groups of Snow Petrels are loosely spaced out with nests scattered along crevices and depressions of rocks. They are agile flyers and typically fly very low, just above the ocean. 

Crabeater Seal

Contrary to their name, crabeater seals don’t actually eat crabs. They were misnamed by the people who first discovered them. With a diet of almost exclusively krill many refer to them as “krilleater seals” instead

Weddell Seal

Weddll seals live and breed further south than any other mammal.They spend most of their time in the water below the ice and in order to stay comfortable in the -104°F  (-40° C ) temperatures they have thick layers of blubber. Mother seals teach their pups to swim when they’re very young, even as early as...

Chinstrap penguin

The chinstrap penguin gets its name from the narrow stripe that runs across the bottom of its head. It’s generally considered to be the most aggressive species of penguin. The chinstrap penguin is so noisy that it’s been nicknamed “the stonebreaker penguin” because its screech is said to be so intense that it breaks stones.

Adelie Penguins

Adelie penguins are very feisty and have been known to attack potential predators, larger birds, and human researchers by slapping them with their flippers. Male adelie penguins attract females by building the biggest nest possible out of rocks, sometimes even sealing rocks from their competition.

Gentoo Penguin

Gentoo penguins can be recognized by the thick white stripe that goes across the top of their head from one eye to the other. Its tail, which is longer and more prominent than that of other penguins, sweeps side to side when it waddles around on land. Gentoo penguin parents take turns incubating eggs, alternating...

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!
