I have a feeling Kitler is definitely getting adopted after today.

The staff at a British animal shelter say no one will adopt a six-week-old kitten because of a black mark under its nose resembling Hitler’s mustache. They’ve named the kitten, which was abandoned at the roadside, “Kitler.”

Meet Yoda, the World’s Ugliest Dog :(

When the owners of “Yoda,” a Chihuahua, found her in an alleyway 14 years ago, they thought at first that she was a rat. “I told her to put it down,” says Terry Devine Schumacher after her daughter brought the dog to her.

Average Lifespan of Animals

Geese can live to be almost 50 years old?  No wonder they’re such cranky bastards.

(Also- the average dog lives for longer than the average cat?  That seems shenanigan-y.)

And the pearl mussel is just shy of whales!

The Bulletproof Dog That Stormed Bin Laden’s Lair

Last year, the military spent $86,000 on four tactical vests to outfit Navy Seal dogs. The SEALs hired Winnipeg, Canada-based contractor K9 Storm to gear up their four-legged, canine partners, which it has used in battle since World War I. K9 Storm’s flagship product is the $20,000-$30,000 Intruder, an upgradeable version of their doggie armor (you can check out the full catalogue here). The tactical body armor is wired with a collapsible video arm, two-way audio, and other attachable gadgets.

Patrol-Swat Vest only $2026! Not including shipping. Totally worth it, of course.
