Lovely profile of Frasier, LA's swingin' 70s lion that sired 35 cubs in 18 months

The Los Angeles Zoo's 19-year-old lion Frasier had a busy 1972. Over an 18 month period, he sired 35 cubs, baffling zookeepers and earning him the sobriquets "The Sensuous Lion" and "The Lovable Lion." He's featured in the first episode of Wild Lives, a new series by Popular Science. He captured the public's imagination and even inspired jazz legend Sarah Vaughn to write a fictionalized backstory for him. Groovy! Image: YouTube / Popular Science

USDA closes Tiger King zoo for animal welfare violations

This week brought more drama involving the human cast of the popular “Tiger King” series but hopefully some peace for the tigers themselves. Time is up for the Greater Wynnewood Exotic Animal Park in Garvin County, Oklahoma, which is now officially closed to the public after the USDA cited multiple animal welfare violations. The park became infamous when Netflix debuted its “Tiger King” documentary series in March. The show’s behind-the-scenes look at big cat owners was wildly popular, garnering...

Tiger King zoo in Oklahoma reopens

There’s something ironic about Joe Exotic’s zoo opening to the public right now. The show that kept everyone entertained during the lockdown is now indirectly responsible for bringing together hordes of tourists, and potentially leading to more infections. Tiger King Park, the exotic animal zoo featured on Netflix’s mega-popular Tiger King series, reopened this weekend in Wynnewood, Oklahoma. The park, previously owned by Joe Exotic, was allowed to open following a weeks-long closure, as lon...

LA Zoo kicks in social distancing from tigers, after Bronx Zoo cat catches coronavirus

Following the COVID-19 infection of a tiger at the Bronx Zoo, L.A. Zoo officials have kicked in new protocols — in additions to several already in place — to protect themslelves and the big cats at the Griffith Park animal hub. Nadia, a 4-year-old female Malayan tiger tested positive for the virus after several lions and tigers at the New York zoo showed symptoms of the illness, which attacks the respiratory system. Turns out, there was some lack of appetite, but they’re doing OK, according a st...

Lingering Plants from a Long Gone Garden

We bought our first house in 1986. Not long afterwards, we met the neighbor from three doors down. His name was Ethan Becker. His grandmother and mother wrote the first Joy of Cooking. Among many other things, he was working on an updated edition, which would publish in 1997. Ethan lived in “Cockaigne”, the Bauhaus home which his father had designed. The kitchen was surprisingly tiny, but the landscape was expansive, about eight acres. One of our favorite parts about it was a wildflower garden...

In Mexico, one Googler gives girls their "tümü" moment

When a butterfly comes out of its cocoon, it uses the most fragile part of its body—its wings— to break free. In the Otomi dialect, which is spoken in the central region of Mexico, this magical moment is called Tümü. So when Paoloa Escalante and her co-founder decided to create an organization to help support young women, they decided that Tümü was a fitting name for it.  “The idea was to create content that promotes determination, self-esteem and assertiveness during a moment in girls’ lives th...

"Animals" escaping from Japanese zoos part of unintentionally funny drills

Every year in Japan, animals escape from zoos in a planned exercise. Except they aren't really animals, they're humans in animal costumes. And they aren't really escaping, they're part of an annual drill to train staff on what to do when a real animal does. While funny to watch, escaped animals are no joke in a country known for earthquakes. Director of Tama Zoological Park, Yutaka Fukuda, told Metro in 2015: ‘In the event of a big earthquake, a tree could fall on a cage, or many other thin...

Overnight at Sydney’s Taronga Zoo

Sydney’s Taronga Zoo is offering a Wildlife Retreat, and in all likelihood, you’ll make it out in one piece. Starting in November, the retreat will allow visitors to have a sleepover at the zoo in one of five sustainable eco-pods while also learning about Australia’s conservation projects. Once the ...

Akron Zoo's 'Emma' the Humboldt Penguin Remembered

Humboldt penguins have a median life expectancy of 16.5 years. Emmanuelle, known as Emma, at the Akron Zoo lived to be 36. The Zoo had retired Emma in 2013. She was suffering from age-related problems. When she stopped responding to treatment last week, they humanely euthanized her. The Zoo says Emma was the oldest, zoo-born female Humboldt penguin in any facility accredited by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums. She hatched April 23, 1983 at the Milwaukee County Zoo and came to Akron in Octo...

Selfie-taking woman attacked

Big cats look beautiful and soft, but they certainly should not be treated like domestic kitties, even if they are kept in a zoo. On Saturday, a woman, who seemed to have forgotten that jaguars are dangerous predators, was at the Wildlife World Zoo in Litchfield Park, Arizona, when she was attacked by a female black jaguar while attempting to take a selfie with the animal. She had stepped over a barrier into the big cat’s enclosure, when it swiped through the fencing and left deep gashes on h...

Zoo offering tug-of-wars with a lion

Zoos are controversial enough — they certainly did not need help from the Dartmoor Zoo, near Plymouth in England, to draw more criticism. The zoo is being condemned for charging visitors $20 to play tug-of-war with its big cats (one lion named Jasiri and one tiger named Dragan). Dubbed the “human v beast” competition, it allows visitors as young as eight years old to pull a rope attached to a piece of meat in the animal’s mouth and try to wrest it from its grip. Absolutely amazing experi...

‘Zoo’ Trailer: A Struggling Couple Ends Up Stuck Together During a Zombie Apocalypse

If you read that headline and thought, “I’ve already seen Shaun of the Dead,” that’s totally fair. However, the premise for a new indie thriller called Zoo takes things beyond an imitation of the beloved Edgar Wright comedy. You see, this couple being stuck together is only one half of the story. As the two get comfortable while waiting to be rescued, their softer side convinces them to let another couple in for safety. What follows is a standoff to see which couple can tolerate each other long...

10 of the Most Accurate Movies of All Time

10 of the most accurate movies of all time Many movies are embarrassingly inaccurate. To make matters even worse, filmmakers often claim that clearly fictional horror stories are based on a true story. That’s why we’ve decided to make a list of especially accurate films. Some are quite famous. Others aren’t well known, at least in the United States. They’re all worth watching at least once…that is, if you can stomach the pain and misery of war and the deep depravity and hopelessness that huma...
