No, they do not just look that way. Crocodilians ARE always happy! It’s science!
fun fact: crocodiles’ eyes produce tears (to lubricate the eye) and these butterflies are a species that drink these tears. this happy little guy is just letting it happen.

PREHISTORIC SHARK: MEGALODON
Megalodon is an extinct species of shark that lived 1.5 million years ago and as you can probably tell from the above pictures it was HUGE, here are some few facts
- It’s teeth were over 7 inches long
- It’s bite can deliver from 10.2-18.6 tons of force, enough to crush a prehistoric whale’s skull like a grape
- It feasted on prehistoric whales, dolphins, squids, fish, and even giant turtles
- It’s fossils have been found all over the world
- No one knows why it went extinct
Don’t complain about the pain! It means the exercise is working!
No no no!
Being in pain is a big deal. It means that need to stop what you’re doing immediately and figure out what’s wrong.
Pain means that you are pushing your body beyond it’s…
Arturo is a 29-year-old male polar bear currently living in Argentina’s Mendoza Zoo. He is suffering in 40C (104F) heat in an enclosure that has just 20 inches of water for him to swim in and has as a consequence been displaying worrying behavior.
Please sign this petition or at least spread the word in order to have Arturo transferred to a zoo in Canada which has better facilities for an animal that is used to polar conditions.
sign this or die
SIGN THIS PLEASE, WE CAN DO SOMETHING FOR THIS BEAR SIGNING THIS!!!
This is embarrassing but it’s true. The problem is that now he is so ill that he probably wouldn’t survive a trip to Canada. If he stays here he would die anyway so sign this please!! We must try at least!
I’ve been putting off signing though I have donated since he wouldn’t survive such a trip, but I’ve just signed it now and hope there’s at least a chance that people will be able to help him, even getting to him they may be able to do something. You can donate here (there’s not that much information but it will go directly to ‘Polar Bears International’.)
On the second page of comments ‘Addibabs’ posted:
“I emailed Polar Bears International to see what they had planned for the money. This is their response: Thank you for your compassion for Arturo, a polar bear living in woefully substandard conditions in a zoo in Argentina. Polar Bears International is a conservation group focused on saving wild polar bears and their arctic ecosystem, but we also work on well-being issues related to polar bears in zoos and aquariums, including funding studies related to their physical and emotional health. Although we did not initiate this fundraising effort (in fact, it came as a surprise to us), we are reaching out to our colleagues in the zoo and aquarium world to explore ways to greatly improve Arturo’s situation and enrich his life. Arturo’s case is challenging due to the complexities of international law. U.S. law, for example, prohibits the importation of polar bears from other countries due to restrictions related to the Marine Mammal Protection Act. And Canada requires medical records, which the Mendoza Zoo doesn’t have. Further complicating matters, a veterinarian exam has revealed that Arturo probably wouldn’t survive being transported due to his age and poor health. Given these complexities, the best course of action may be to send an expert to Argentina to work with the zoo to improve conditions there. We will need the cooperation of the Mendoza Zoo and the Argentine government for that, and we hope they will be open to this guidance. Regardless of the outcome, we can guarantee that all monies raised will be spent on the betterment of lives of polar bears in captivity. We greatly appreciate your concern for Arturo. Caring individuals like you give us hope for a better world.”
