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!

The World's Tallest Teen Is Also The Sweetest

At 7 feet 8 inches tall, 19-year-old Broc Brown's already inches taller than basketball legends Shaquille O'Neal and Yao Ming! Growing an average of six inches every year, he's on track to becoming the world's tallest man! Being this tall has serious medical implications. Even though the genetic disorder he was born with causes extreme growth and complicates simple things like feeling "full" and finding shoes that fit, Broc's a gentle soul. "Patience" is his motto as Broc lives out the complicated reality of his never-ending "growth spurt." UPDATE: Feetz is giving him his very own pair of custom 3D printed shoes in Feb. 2017! We're so happy for Broc. View Now
