Peacocks, or rather, peafowls, are most well known for their eye-spotted tails the males have. Males display these tails as a part of courtship. Females are called peahens, males peacocks, and the babies are peachicks. Continue reading →
Just when you think animals couldn’t possibly get any cuter, they do. Here at Newscom, we always have images of animals that make us want to adopt animals like a panda or giraffe and keep a hedgehog in our pocket at all times. And the problem is, we keep getting more in all the time. Continue reading →
It’s one of my favorite parts of many from “Princess and the Frog” when in the very beginning Charlotte is trying to force Tiana to kiss a frog, or rather her cat with a frog hat on (watch here). I always feel sorry for the animal. But sometimes it is either the cutest or funniest thing to see a creature in some form of clothing. In the previous mentioned instance, it’s pretty funny.
Perhaps it’s a bit early for Halloween, but I feel like if stores are already putting out their Christmas decorations, then I should have started talking about Halloween months ago.
Some may call it animal cruelty, but personally, I just find dressing up animals hilarious. I also love the caption under many of these pictures, “So your pooch won’t feel left out this Halloween…” I guess I’ve been insensitive to my dog all these years. I had no idea she wanted to parade around in an angel costume. Continue reading →
In 1889 the Yale Bulldog, Handsome Dan I, became the first live animal mascot in the country. After 123 years Handsome Dan XVII still walks the sidelines at Yale games. Handsome Dan is no longer alone as a number of schools have their own Bulldogs at all of their games with other schools choosing different breads to patrol their field. Over the years a number of more exotic animals have found their way on to the field including Tigers and Bears. Continue reading →
“Man’s Best Friend“, herders, babysitters, eyes for the blind, and even a source of food in Korea, dogs serve many purposes across cultures and throughout the span of history. Believed to be the first domesticated animal, their roots are traced back to Canis lupus, more commonly known as the grey wolf. Dogs have the most variety of breed as far as land animals go, from Paris Hilton’s tiny chihuahua, Tinkerbell, to George, the 7 foot long great dane; they come in all shapes, lengths, sizes, textures and colors.

Hedgehogs are how you would say so “in” at the moment. From home decor to clothing and jewelry, the little spiky creatures are showing up everywhere, replacing the trend of the owl. But who’s complaining? They are utterly adorable animals! Continue reading →
Thanks to “Julie of the Wolves” I have this mild obsession with the regal beauty of Northern Alaska. Along with the serenity and majesty of the mountains, the aurora borealis, the ocean, with the glorious territory there comes the ferocious beauty of the wolves.
Elegance; royalty, primitive ferocity, playfulness and love emanate from wolves. Yes, they’re animals and some might argue that they have no spirits, but look into their wise eyes and watch how their packs look after one another as a family, and then tell me they are spiritless. We can learn much from wolves. Continue reading →
June 4th is National Hug Your Cat Day. Well it also might have been May 30th (several internet sites debate this) but despite when the official date is set aside to hug your cat, it seems like this is the time of year people want to appreciate cats.
And house cats are great. Some dog lovers may dispute that opinion, but pets, especially cats, have been found to help reduce stress levels, anxiety and blood pressure. That may be the reason old ladies who hoard cats live for so long (no studies have been conducted to prove such a theory… yet). Continue reading →
