21 Animals Who Are More Athletic Than Most Humans

I am a terrible athlete. No matter the sport, I am guaranteed to be the worst person on the team. I was okay with that for a while.

Then I saw animals attempt these same sports and they just happen to be way better than me without even trying. It’s the kind of thing that really puts things in perspective. Or maybe it doesn’t. I don’t know. I’m too upset to really think about it right now. 

Don’t believe me? Check out these animals and see if it doesn’t put you in your place.

These Animals Are So Ready To Spend Their Summer At The Beach

I’ve never taken my dog to the beach, but I suspect she would like it. There would be things to smell and places to dig holes, and that’s really all it takes to make her happy. There are also good places to sleep, but she can really do that anywhere.

The point is that beaches are a perfect place for dogs, so it is no wonder that no one has ever seen an unhappy dog there. Every dog is constantly either playing or sleeping, and only sleeping long enough for them to be reenergized for the next round of playing.

So take your dogs to the beach this summer. They’ll thank you later.

Mourning Dog Takes Care Of Stuffed Animals Like Her Own Puppies

HELP, MY HEART!! Look at this good dog. She’s trying so hard to take care of her puppies, but her puppies are three stuffed toys:

BuzzFeed reports that teen Twitter user Xavier Hernandez shared an image of his dog with her replacement family, captioning it, “So my dog was pregnant and she lost all 3 of her puppies so my mom bought her these toys and she thinks they’re her puppies.” Xavier told them that the dog’s name is Twinkle, and her puppies died during their birth. She seemed depressed after her loss, and Xavier’s mom gave her the three toys thinking it might help comfort her. Apparently, she bonded to them right away.

“She didn’t do anything without them and wouldn’t let anyone touch them,” explained Xavier. Oh my gosh, oh my gosh, my face is melting faster than the polar ice caps. On the brightish side, Xavier does seem to think Twinkle is doing better, and taking care of her toys has lifted her spirits. But it’s still freaking killing everyone on the Internet:

Twinkle, Twinkle, little star, you are the best dog by far. Cuddle your baby toys close, cuddle your doggos closer.

This Guy's Reaction To Exotic Animals Is The Purest Thing To Happen In 2016

If you look at any teenagers online profiles, it would be pretty easy to write off this generation of high school students as Instagram obsessed brats with no real passion for anything outside social media. However, for every kid glued to their iPhone, there’s a kid appreciating the incredible world around them. The latter are our hope for the future.

One of those hopes for the future is 17-year-old Jalen Brooks, a high school senior from Riverside, Illinois. A herpetologist came to his high school zoology class to show the students rare animals that had been confiscated from the illegal pet trade… And let’s just say, Brooks was pretty damn mesmerized. 

Classmate Jill Lojas tweeted a video of Brooks’ epic reactions to the presentation. 

Clearly, Brooks could NOT handle the majesty of the animal kingdom. 

“It began when he pulled out the biggest duck species there is! I was super intrigued,” he told BuzzFeed News. “After that,  then he pulled out the largest python I’ve ever seen and I lost it.”

Twitter is now “losing it” over Brooks’ enthusiasm. TBH, it’s just so pure and refreshing.

The video has been retweeted nearly 140,000 times — and it’s getting the meme treatment. 

As if the story isn’t adorable enough already, Brooks’ account of the whole thing is priceless. “He pulled out a series of crazy reptiles that were honestly dinosaurs in my opinion,” he said. “Then he pulled out the largest python I’ve ever seen and I lost it.”

Some people were equally impressed by the animals, and they wondered why their zoology classes weren’t this cool. 

It didn’t take long for the memes to start flowing in. 

The newfound Twitter fame has even landed Brooks some A-list followers, including NBA star Stephen Curry. 

Jalen, never lose your sense of wonder.

32 Animals Taking A Break Because Being An Animal Is Hard

I used to have a dog that would sleep for around twenty hours a day. The remaining four hours were spent looking for a good space to sleep. He would normally settle for the same spot where he always slept. 

My family and I would always wonder what he was doing that was so exhausting. Being a dog sounds like a pretty sweet gig. 

As it turns out all animals need to sleep. (Who could have guessed?) So we have collected some of the best sleepers. Please enjoy. I am going to take a nap.
