The Oregon Zoo used to exercise Chendra, its baby Asian elephant, by walking her around the neighborhood in the morning. Here’s Chendra at the zoo’s Stellar Cove in 2007, saying hi to a sea lion named Gus.

In the wild, Asian and Indian elephants are endangered by poaching, hunting, and destruction of habitat. Sea lions face hunting, pollution, and entanglement in fishing equipment. The Oregon Zoo recommends helping at-risk species by taking Small Actions. For instance, you can plant wildlife-friendly flowers in your yard to aid bumblebees. Check out more of the zoo’s helpful tips here!

Why would a T. Rex swim when it can travel in style? These dinosaur replicas are being barged to the 1964 World’s Fair in New York City. They seem to be enjoying the ride!

It’s Fried Chicken Day

Posted: July 6th, 2017 | Author: | Filed under: T Writes | Tags: , | No Comments »

Does fried chicken need a day of observance? Apparently so, because TODAY IS IT.

According to Wikipedia, it’s unclear how this day originated and who or what entity started it. But it is the official date to celebrate this classic American dish.

Now just be careful you don’t eat a puppy instead!

Happy Easter!

Celebrating Easter can be hard on pets. This unfortunate reveler has one question on its mind: WHO DID THIS TO ME?

All the usual suspects are undercover, of course. Thanks to paper plates and craft supplies.

Some are hiding under a shell.

And even Mom is incognito.

Maybe this mystery will be solved. Maybe not. But all Easter-frocked pets deserve an extra treat today!
