The Squeaky-Toy Frog

Jambo, everybody! Mr. Nature here–with a tiny African frog that sounds just like a dog’s squeaky-toy.

Actually, this frog is angrily defending his territory. He needs to work on his threat display. Puffing himself up, that’s a popular frog tactic. It’s the squeaking that makes him as cute as a button.

God’s stuff–it’s just way cool.

The Crow & His Pets

What’s going on here? A crow is feeding a cat and a dog, one morsel at a time. The two carnivores tamely accept snacks from the bird’s beak. How did the crow set this up? Whose idea was it? How did the crow know he wouldn’t get eaten? And what are the dog and the cat thinking? What the other dogs and cats must think of these two… tut-tut.

When a Bear Comes Calling…

Get a load of this: a great big bear comes climbing up the porch to see if anyone’s home. There being nothing or no one to eat, she decides to leave.

Wait! The bear is wearing a collar. Hmm… And attacked to the collar, it seems, is some kind of little keg. Maybe it’s got whiskey in it. Maybe this critter thinks she’s [wait for it!]…

A St. Bear-nard.


A Baby Beaver

Here in suburban New Jersey we don’t get much interaction with beavers. So I had never seen a baby beaver before.

It seems they come into this world rarin’ to go; and, like box turtles (who should certainly know better!), once they get moving, they won’t stop or turn aside for anything. I can’t explain why box turtles do that. Maybe a beaver is born with the expectation of landing in the water.

Special! Quokka Video

G’day! Byron the Quokka here, with a special quokka video. This is my cousin Brando, named for his uncanny resemblance to Marlon Brando. “As alike as two peas in a pod!” his mother said, after she saw Mutiny on the Bounty.

Brando is well-known for his flawless table manners, which you can easily see as he chows down on a leaf. What style! And he chews with his eyes closed, just to show you he can do it.

Everybody Loves to Chase Lasers

Forget the cats and dogs: all the critters in this video want to chase the laser pointer. Even a spider chases it–not to mention horse, raccoon, ducklings, and chickens. Even fish. I’ll have to remember to bring one of these laser doohickeys along the next time I go fishing. No, wait, never mind, that would be cheating.

Funny Armadillos (with atrocious “music”)

Armadillos are cool, funny, and we don’t get a chance to see much of them–well, not up here in New Jersey, we don’t.

To enhance your enjoyment of this video, turn off the sound track. I am sure I never heard worse… music? can I call this garbage music?… in my life. Don’t even think about it getting better as it goes on.

Bears Just Wanna Have Fun

The way they heard it, Goldilocks was a bear who wandered into the house of The Three Humans and tried out all the hammocks.

Momma Bear and two cubs get the most out of this hammock. Meanwhile, I’d like to know what that thing is in the background. Has someone partially buried an old brass bed? Something spooky about this whole scene…

The Three Amigos (Cat, Rat, & Dog)

Here’s something you don’t see every day–a cat, a rat, and a dog all playing together. Like, isn’t the rat supposed to get eaten?

But our pets are marvelously adaptable, and learn to do a lot of things at home that they would never do in the wild. Our rats were smart as whips, affectionate, and playful. But they only had humans to play with. This rat has got it made.

Special Fantastic Video Treat!

What if you really did have an elephant in the living room? Here’s a house in Khao Yai National Park, Thailand, where a wild bull elephant decided to drop in for a visit.

But look how careful he is not to wreck the place. If he shrugs his shoulders, that’s it for the roof.

Those wet patches under his eyes are not tears. They are a sign that he’s seriously looking for a mate. And I guess he was determined to look just about anywhere.
