Begging, hungry "street elephants" are getting their first taste of freedom in this feel-good video from Elephant News. Their childhoods stolen in the cruel name of business, these poor giants were ultimately left to fend for themselves in the dangerous human world. The lucky few frolicking here were rescued and brought to this river at the Save Elephant Foundation in Thailand to begin their new, free lives.

Mischievous little Jaxzyn at the Sleepy Burrows Wombat Sanctuary can't decide whether he's a puppy or an Australian Bare-nosed wombat!

If it were us, we'd let the croc have his day alone at the beach. Then, Lucy the dog met a new friend out on the ocean. A dolphin swam by her family's boat and seemed very interested. Perhaps the dolphin wanted to know why this particular human had four legs and was so furry? via Viral Hog View Now
