    Her brother said he would do this. She thought he was joking. He wasn't. What is especially cute is that the llama caught the bouquet.......and then ate it.

    A man brought a llama to his sister's wedding, delighting just about everyone but the bride

    A newborn panda weighs between 90 and 130 grams and is only 1/900th the size of its mother. Because of their small size, newborn pandas are very fragile and have a high risk of disease and death. It appears this one, however, will survive:

    This dog runs into flames to rescue koalas. He's my new hero.

    Australia Fires: Rescue dog Bear saves scores of koalas
    An Australian Koolie dog who was abandoned by his family has been rescued and retrained to detect
    koalas. Bear has been following the aftermath of Australia's bushfires since January, finding sick,
    injured or starving koalas that otherwise would have perished. He has now rescued more than 100.

    We've all heard of homing pigeons. Here's a homing labrador.

    A Kansas dog went missing for days. Turns out, she had journeyed to her previous house in Missouri, 57 miles away.

    The World Wildlife Fund estimates there are between 22,000 and 31,000 polar bears in the world. Around two-thirds of them are in Canada. Experts say rising temperatures, melting sea ice and decreased food supplies will cause the polar bear population to decline by one-third by 2050 – and all the polar bears could be gone by 2100. Yikes!

    Polar bears could disappear by 2100 due to melting ice, climate change, study says
    A new study suggests the Arctic species is at risk of being starved into extinction by the end of the century.

    Red pandas are native to the eastern Himalayas and southwestern China. There are fewer than 10,000 red pandas in the wild. Their numbers are decreasing because of habitat loss and poaching.

    This woman was dragged by a bison and knocked unconscious but, miraculously, escaped serious injury. She's lucky.
