Baby Animals <3

BearHug

These last two weeks I have been surrounded with baby animals…The baby Ostriches are now just a little over two weeks and are doing amazingly well! There were a few days there were we all thought that they may have “Fainting Ostrich” syndrome…Which is basically where the new hatchings will not eat or drink and eventually starve to death…THIS DID NOT HAPPEN! =D

For some reason ever since these two lovely little lights of life have come into the world all I have been seeing recently are baby animals everywhere!

With this edition of “Fact Friday” I have decided to add a few pictures and links were you can say all the “Awws” you want to the sweet little baby animals and some interesting sites as well as sites where you can donate and are helpful sites dedicated to saving our wildlife and pets (please click these pictures to get to websites).

Today is a most joyous day indeed! The baby ostriches that I have been obsessed with since last year are starting to “hatch”. I have been watching for the last few hours and out of the 5, there are only two that have been showing any growth in the egg. (There was a third that was growing slower than the others, but have not heard what has happened to it since beginning of last week, when it was taken out of the incubator).

It is extremely fascinating! Ostriches do not start growing as soon as the egg is laid, the foetuses start growing once they start to “heat up” (or usually when an adult Ostrich starts to nest on top of the eggs, or in this case are put into a incubator). Once again the Dash Family is going to be presenting a live feed to the whole world of the hatching process and, hopefully, successfully raising them.

My partner made a joke about how he has this image of me being “obsessively watching the video”…Of course I’m not =P lol…It can take up to 24 hours for a baby Ostrich to hatch. Ostrich eggs are the toughest eggs on the planet, which is why it takes so long for them to hatch.

Currently one of the two Ostriches that are fully developed has finally “Pipped” and has broken through a little, you can view it’s head. Time (California time – Location of Ostriches): 7:04am…(Australia Time): 12:00am…Which is why I am now heading to bed.

Once again below is the link to the live feed:

The Happiest Animals.

These last couple of weekends have been fantastic for me and so instead of some boring facts I thought that I would get you all to press the link below and grin at the happiest animals on the planet! (Also I am aware it’s not exactly Friday)

I am such a sucker for a cute Hamster =D

Magic baby Ostriches!

Last year was a really rough year for myself. I went through a really rough break up and found out what and who real friendships meant. During this time I was also doing my studies to become a Librarian.

Also last year one of my friends introduced me to a live feed, during which a baby ostrich was trying to hatch out of its egg. I spent the entire night and into the early morning watching this little baby Ostrich hatch. The reason I am making this post is because for me the birth of this bird introduced me to a different side of life. It felt like magic watching this baby bird hatch, it is one of the few times that I have watched any type of baby animal be born. It is definitely the first time I have watched a bird hatch out of it’s egg.

The “Dash” family decided to contribute this live feed to the entire world and I ended up making friends from all over the world. Unfortunately their first baby Ostrich passed away due to complications of ¬†infected intestines and a retained yolk sac. (I cried about the baby Ostrich more than losing my ex as a friend). The Dash family decided to take on 3 more baby birds and they all eventually passed away due to different reasons (one was attacked by a raccoon!).

You can only imagine my excitement this morning when I woke up and there was an email notification saying that the Baby Ostrich Cam went live! I went straight there, before I ate, drank or got changed for the day. They now have 5 little eggs that they are hoping will be hatching around the 13th of July 2014. I think that that couple of days I will be taking notes and then I am going to write one full blog about it…So look out for that one!

Animals vs Humans (mainly children)

About a week ago I was trying to cheer myself up (the night before the new Government Australian Budget had been released and it was NOT pleasant). So although it may not be fact, not only are these videos actually quiet hilarious (especially with the adults obviously knowing what is about to happen) These videos are also a great reminder about how animals are in fact animals and parents need to remember to teach their children to respect this.

Dawn the Fox

So Dawn the Fox was rescued by the¬†Nuneaton and Warwickshire Wildlife Sanctuary. I had no idea that Foxes actually wagged their tail and rolled onto their backs to get a tummy rub. I shared this on my Facebook and so many of my friends were suprised to see a fox wagging it’s tail. None one of us ever thought that a Fox wags it tail although it’s apart of the Dog family.

This has to be the sweetest thing I have ever seen and definitely had to been shown for a Fact Friday! You learn something new every day, if this doesn’t cheer you up I don’t know what will!
