Global wildlife populations have fallen by 58% since 1970, a report says.

The Living Planet assessment, by the Zoological Society of London (ZSL) and WWF, suggests that if the trend continues that decline could reach two-thirds among vertebrates by 2020.

The figures suggest that animals living in lakes, rivers and wetlands are suffering the biggest losses.

Human activity, including habitat loss, wildlife trade, pollution and climate change contributed to the declines.

Birds do it. Bees do it. Bears do it too–but some bears do it a bit differently.

Researchers from Poland are reporting that a pair of male brown bears at a zoo in Croatia have been engaging in oral sex–and lots of it. Over the course of 116 hours of recent observation, the animals engaged in fellatio 28 times. That’s about one act of fellatio for every four hours, with each act ranging in duration from 1 minute to 4 minutes.

Matching Dog and Baby Duo Are Dangerously Cute

Everyone had a childhood best friend growing up — some were real, some invisible, and if you were really lucky, they may have been a dog.

Zoey and Jasper are the cutest kid-pooch pair you’ll ever see. Zoey is a 7-year-old rescue dog from Taiwan. Jasper is 10-month-old from Los Angeles. They like to pose in matching outfits and get their picture taken by their mom, Grace Chon, who is a commercial photographer that specializes in professional pet photos.

If the photos of the duo aren’t cute enough, the puppy’s story makes it even sweeter. Chon adopted Zoey from a foster named Joy who took the pup and five siblings from a student who saved the newborn litter from being washed down a gutter.

New Species Of River Dolphin Discovered In Brazil (PHOTOS)

It seems Mother Nature still has a few secrets up her sleeve.

In a study published in PLOS ONE this week, researchers announced the discovery of a new species of river dolphin in Brazil. The marine mammal is the first river dolphin to be described since 1918, the authors noted in the research.

Discovered in the Araguaia River basin, Inia araguaiaensis is believed to have diverged from river dolphins in the Amazon more than 2 million years ago due to a shift in the landscape. Unlike other river dolphins in Brazil, the newly discovered species has only 24 teeth per jaw, instead of the typical 25 to 29.

10,000 Walrus Converge On Alaskan Beach As Arctic Sea Ice Declines

An estimated 10,000 walrus unable to find sea ice over shallow Arctic Ocean water have come ashore on Alaska’s northwest coast.

Scientists with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration on Friday photographed walrus packed onto a beach on a barrier island near Point Lay, an Inupiat Eskimo village 300 miles southwest of Barrow and 700 miles northwest of Anchorage.

The walrus have been coming to shore since mid-September. The large herd was spotted during NOAA’s annual arctic marine mammal aerial survey, an effort conducted with the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, the agency that conducts offshore lease sales.

An estimated 2,000 to 4,000 walrus were photographed at the site Sept. 12. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the agency that manages walrus, immediately took steps to prevent a stampede among the animals packed shoulder to shoulder on the rocky coastline. The agency works with villages to keep people and airplanes a safe distance from herds.

Young animals are especially vulnerable to stampedes triggered by a polar bear, a human hunter or a low-flying airplane. The carcasses of more than 130 mostly young walruses were counted after a stampede in September 2009 at Alaska’s Icy Cape.

Transparent Snail, Zospeum tholussum, Discovered In Croatia (PHOTOS)

A new snail species with a beautifully translucent shell was recently discovered more than 3,000 feet (914 meters) underground in a Croatian cave.

A team of cavers and biologists with the Croatian Biospeleological Society discovered Zospeum tholussum in the Lukina Jama-Trojama cave systems of western Croatia — one of the 20 deepest cave systems in the world — on an expedition to determine the cave’s depth. The team collected all animal specimens found along the way, since deep cave crevices are often promising places to find new species, and happened upon one live sample of the new snail, along with eight empty shells.

The team presented the elegant snail to taxonomist Alexander Weigand at Goethe-University in Frankfurt, Germany, for help in identification. Weigand determined that this particular species had never before been found, but that it is related to other known species.

The dachshunds that love bath time: Hilarious moment owner lets her two pets take over her bathtub… but they have to jump into it first

  • Dachshund puppies can hardly contain their excitement to go upstairs

  • They charge straight into the bathroom and leap into the tub, tails wagging

  • One puppy needs a little help to get in, then they happily swim in circles

Dogs have never been known to shy away from charging into the water when walking along the beach – but when it comes to bath time, most are less obliging.These two delightful dachshund puppies, however, can hardly contain their excitement at the idea of jumping into a bathtub.

The adorable little dogs wait with almost unbearable excitement to be allowed upstairs.

Boa Constrictor Eats Howler Monkey In Gruesome VIDEO

If a snake eats a monkey in the forest and no one sees it, does it make a difference? New evidence suggests that it does.

For the first time, scientists have witnessed a boa constrictor attacking and eating a howler monkey. The finding, and boa-eating-monkey video, is noteworthy since reports of primates being eaten by predators are relatively rare, according to the study, published this month in the journal Primates.

“This may cause us to rethink how vulnerable [these] primates are to predation,” said Paul Garber, a primatologist at the University of Illinois, who wasn’t involved in the study.
