The world’s most famous ice age fossil excavation site is located in the heart of Los Angeles, California at the La Brea Tar Pits. Fans of ice age animals can view a heartbreaking scene: a daddy mammoth and a baby mammoth bidding a sad farewell to a mother mammoth trapped in the deadly ooze and sinking fast.

Of course, these aren’t real mammoths. They are made of durable fiberglass, created by sculptor Howard Ball and installed at the bubbling site in 1967.

How did they get to the tar pits? Towed behind Mr. Ball’s 1958 Volkswagen, of course!

Conch shells are something to blow like a horn on special occasions and otherwise keep proudly on a shelf of treasures.

In the ocean, however, conch shells are something else entirely.

Occupied.

We see you, conches!

Recently, an orphaned baby Australian possum was saved from danger by a wildlife rescue service in Melbourne. This particular possum baby suffered from a mutation that resulted in a golden yellow fur instead of the usual dark brown. Caregivers at the animal shelter named it Pikachu after the popular Pokémon character. Several so-called golden Australian possums have been sighted in the wild, but there’s only one Pikachu!

Can you spot the resemblance?
