Blue-Footed Booby

Blue footed boobies are best known for their bright blue feet which develop in color as they mature. This color comes from pigments in the foods that they eat which means you can tell how healthy a booby is based on how bright blue its feet are. Females choose their mates based on who has...

Mexican Axolotl

Axolotl’s don’t go through the same process of metamorphosis as other salamanders. They keep their tadpole like dorsal fins and external gills and instead. They grow as they age but they don’t go through any other changes. If an axolotl injures or loses a limb, it is able to regenerate that part of its body.


 Wolverines spend most of their time alone roaming long distances, some even traveling 15 miles (24km) in one day to find food. Wolverines have pretty poor eyesight but they are able to make up for it with their excellent sense of smell. Wolverines can smell food that is buried up to 20 feet (6m) underground.


Skunks are best known for their bad smelling musk which they spray out from two glands near the base of their tail when they feel threatened. Sometimes skunks will give a warning by growling, stamping their front feet, and lifting their tails. If the threat doesn’t retreat, a skunk can hit its target from up...


Seahorses are able to change colors in order to camouflage with their environment in order to evade predators and sneak up on their prey. The ability to hide is especially important for seahorses because they’re extremely slow, only reaching speeds up to 4.9 feet (150 cm) per hour. Seahorses don’t have teeth and they eat...

California Quail

California quails are very social birds. They typically travel in groups of 25 to 40 but coveys of over 1000 quails have been reported. They spend most of their time on land and only fly for very short distances but when they do they can reach speeds of 38-58 miles (61.2-93 km) per hour.

Great Horned Owl

Great horned owls are named for the horned shaped tufts of feathers, which are called plumicorns, on top of their heads. No one knows the exact reason for these feathers but scientists have a few ideas of what they could be for. It's possible that they’re used as camouflage to blend in with tree branches...


Ladybugs have their vibrant color in order to appear poisonous and deter any predators from eating them. They primarily eat plant eating insects, and one ladybug can eat up to 5,000 insects in its lifetime. This makes them very helpful to farmers and gardeners who want to protect their crops without spraying them with toxic...

Greater Flamingo

Flamingos are known for their bright pink feathers but they’re actually born white. A flamingo’s coloring is determined by the pigments in the food it eats and they can be found in colors other than pink including red, orange, and white. Flamingos have 19 vertebrae in their necks, which is almost three times as many...


 There are three different types of honeybees. Most females are workers who forage for food and protect the hive, one queen is the single fertile female of a hive and spawns the next generation, and the male bees, which are called drones, stay in the hive during mating season but are then left to fend...

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!
