Here’s the thing, I love animals in every shape, form and size. Whenever I lose faith in humanity and don’t want to live on this planet anymore, the little beasts, whether fluffy, feathered or scaly give me hope and turn my frown upside down every-time. This would also explain why my little bungalow resembles more of a zoo than a home, and why I leave my dorm looking like I’ve been ravished by a pack of wolves.
You could say I’m slightly obsessed, when I’m not attending to my cluster of critters, I’m either working at the local zoo, volunteering at the animal shelter or browsing the internet for the best resources on all things to do with pets, and because they’re so great, whether it’s because they’re informative or simply for the laughs, here’s a list of my top picks.
The zoology news blog is great at keeping you up to date with all the new developments in the industry, from endangered species births to conservation efforts. With a collection of incredible stories from zoo’s, aquariums and sanctuaries around the world and a gallery of adorable animal baby photos, this site is a budding zoologist dream, as well as a great way to educate kids. Did I mention you can buy the book version?
This is a site purely for the LOLs. If I’m having a bad day, I’ll browse through some of the hilarious or incredibly cute videos on this site. You’ll be giggling and gushing in no time with the wonderful selection of parodies and skits.
