We’ve been counting down the days until Discovery Channel's Shark Week, and we’re ecstatic that it’s finally here. We want great whites, hammerheads and tiger sharks. We want menacing eyes, bared teeth and fins slicing through water. We want that poor Snuffy the seal to outwit the sharks. We want Shark Week to last more than one mere week out of the year.
Well, thanks to TOMS shoes, you can relive your favorite moments of Shark Week all year long — just by looking down at your feet. With each purchase of the limited edition kicks, TOMS will not only give a child in need a new pair of shoes, they’ll also donate $5 to Oceana, the world’s largest ocean conservation organization.
The Shark Shoes, available for men, women, children and toddlers, come in a unique camouflaged shark pattern and will look splendid with a pair of jeans. Or, if you’re brave enough to go near the water this week, swap them out for flip-flops on your next trip to the beach or pool.
In the final scene of the epic 1993 movie, "Homeward Bound: The Incredible Journey," Sassy the cat is the first missing pet to saunter back home to the Seaver family. Phew. Then Chance follows close behind. Oh, hooray!
But wait. Where's Shadow? Shadow!
What do you mean, "he's just too old?"
We are a wreck.
But then, oh, we see a glimmer of golden fur. Shadow's alive!
Thankfully, we aren't the only ones in a heap in front of the couch. This Pug is just as overwhelmed and happy to finally see the entire family of animals and kids reunite.
At only 2 months old, the Woodland Park Zoo’s newest red-crowned crane chick is already serving a very important role — he’s an ambassador for endangered cranes facing habitat loss and life-threatening conflicts with humans in the Amur Basin of Northeast Asia.
The Seattle, Wash., zoo teamed up with Muraviovka Park for Sustainable Land Use and the International Crane Foundation through the zoo's Partners for Wildlife program to help bring back the dwindling population of red-crowned cranes in their native habitat.
“Muraviovka Park gives red-crowned cranes a chance to flourish; it’s a safe haven for them to breed, nest and raise their young,” says Fred Koontz, vice president of field conservation for the Woodland Park Zoo.
By the looks of this adorable fluffy chick, we can tell that he’s going to do a tremendous job representing his species.
Turbo the snail puts the “go” in “escargot.”
The speedy little creature is the star of DreamWorks’ new animated flick, Turbo, and thanks to a freak accident, he’s super fast.
Like anyone with a need for speed, Turbo dreams of winning one the world’s most illustrious car races: the Indy 500. Of course, since he’s a snail, no one thinks he stands a chance. Do you think this little guy with big dreams can prove them wrong? Based on the trailer below, we think he has a pretty good chance.
Turbo, starring Ryan Reynolds and Paul Giamatti, opens in theaters nationwide on Wednesday, July 17.
