We are all familiar with the cat purrito by now, but have you ever seen a baby bat wrapped up like a burrito? It's almost too cute to handle! When these baby flying foxes arrived at the Australian Bat Clinic due to extreme heat events that separated them from their mothers, they were well taken care of -- as you can see from the video. 

The video may be on the older side but something so cute needs to live on and on. If you watch this entire video and have no emotions about it, you may want to go get that checked out because the cuteness meter is through the roof!

Spooktober Special: Black Cat Magic

Welcome back to another installment of Black Cat Magic! Once a week, throughout the month of October, we will dedicate a list to the magic that is black cats. 

There is so much negative stigma towards these house panthers. People still believe that if a black cat crosses your path, it symbolizes bad luck. Black cats are known to not be adopted as often as other cats. And worse of all, there is a belief that black cats are in danger around Halloween time. Due to these superstitious, it may be wise to make sure your house panther(s) are kept indoors. Animal shelters also tend to hold the adoption of black cats until after Halloween. 

Now, back to admiring and celebrating these beautiful creatures! Not only are black cats gorgeous, they are also one of the goofiest cats around! If you have a black cat, you already know. If you don't own a house panther and need some proof, just check out some of the silly videos below! Oh, and, you'll definitely want to have the sound on for the following videos!

Colorful And Oddly Adorable Peacock Spiders

Another Spooktober special! OK, we know what you're thinking, "Spiders? Heck no." And we get that, and we're also like that. However, when it comes to peacock spiders, there's something enchanting about them. Yes, if we were ever in the presence of one, we'd probably run. 

These are just photos and vids, they can't hurt us. Remember that. 

The peacock spider is probably the most beautiful spider out there, with its vivid colors, and disproportional huge eyes, you can't help but think, "OK, these guys can be cool." Much like peacocks, male peacock spiders are the most colorful of the sexes and have displayed their colors bolding when trying to attract a mate. 

As much as they make us squeamish, bugs can be quite cool looking!

Spooktober Special: Black Cat Magic

When it comes to Halloween, we absolutely love to feature the Halloweeniest cat there is - the black cat! And to break the superstition that black cats are unlucky. Because, frankly, how can something so sweet and adorable be unlucky? Statistically, black cats are the least likely to be adopted and we need to fix that. 

Black cats are magic. For those of you who own a mini-house panther, you already know. We're here to spread that magic! Each week, during October, we will be featuring a segment solely on black cats! Be sure not to blink, or you might miss it!

Deep Diving With Some Shark Facts

It's the beginning of Spooktober and what's spookier than creatures of the deep sea? So much is unknown and the information we do know can be just as scary as the unknown! 

Sharks. If someone tells you, while in shark-infested waters, that they aren't afraid of sharks... they're definitely lying to you. Sharks are terrifying! Yes, they're also amazing and very important to the balance of the ecosystem but that doesn't change the fact that they are essentially dinosaurs. They've got this haunting movement and look, those black eyes... and all those teeth! 

As part of our Spooktober special, we bring to you 25 shark facts that are pretty unnerving. Enjoy!

The Dank Drop: 25 Of Our Favorite Dank Memes Of The Week (9-26 To 10-2)

Happy Friday to our friends and fellow lovers of dank memes. This week's edition of The Dank Drop is not the usual hodgepodge of spicy and surreal memes from Reddit. Much of this is due to Donald Trump's Covid-19 diagnosis early this morning. It's also because it's officially Spooktober - which means the r/dankmemes community is absolutely overwhelmed with spooky skeleton memes. While most of the this gallery falls into one of those themes, there are still goodies for people who don't like reveling in Donald Trump's illness and hate October. We're betting that very few people fall into both categories.
