With her babies trapped in a storm drain, a brave and determined duck did what any desperate mother would do — she quacked for help.
The police officers who arrived on the scene quickly pulled the ducklings to safety and let the brood out in a nearby body of water — with Mom following close behind.
But, oh, just wait until the mother-baby reunion at the end of the video — it will pull at your heartstrings.
We’re certain that F. Scott Fitzgerald would totally approve of this feline interpretation of his famous novel. Really, who could say no to Scat Cat?
A group of black-footed African penguins recently shed their “tuxedos” and donned traditional African costumes to welcome 50 African leaders to Yokohama, Japan.
The leaders were in the country to attend the Tokyo International Conference on African Development, reports Sky News. Yuichi Yoshimoto, a caretaker at Hakkeijima Sea Paradise amusement park, said he hoped the leaders would come see the dressed-up birds.

A pair of goofy slugs, hummingbirds, evil-looking crows, a mouse and a giant Pug (yes, giant) are just a few of the many animals we tallied up from watching the trailer for the new computer-animated fantasy flick Epic. Really, what more could an animal lover ask for in a movie?
How about a cast of awesome celebrities? Josh Hutcherson, Amanda Seyfried, Steven Tyler, Beyoncé, Aziz Ansari and Christoph Waltz are some of the actors (and rock stars) who lend their voices to the film.

So who’s planning to see Epic this Memorial Day weekend? Tell us what you think of the movie in the comments.
"I'm happy as a Corgi in a sweater wearing booties walking kindly through the leaves in the middle of the fall / I'm peachy as a puppy sitting soundly in a lady's lap watching all the birds fly this-a'way and that."
Best song lyrics ever written? We think so.

When the adorable duo explored their exhibit for the first time, their natural climbing instincts took over and they started scaling the logs in their habitat.
