The sloth was born November 20th to mother, ‘Jackie’, and father, ‘Mocha’.  Zoo staff had been closely monitoring Jackie’s pregnancy and had been tracking the growth of the baby via ultrasound. Their excellent zoo and veterinarian staff worked hard to train Jackie to allow them to do an ultrasound on a weekly basis. Gestation for sloths is about 11 ½ months. This is the thirteenth time for Jackie to give birth at the Topeka Zoo, but it is the first offspring for father, Mocha.

It will be a little bit longer before staff can determine the sex, but the baby and mother are doing well. They now make their home in the Zoo’s Rainforest exhibit. For now, the baby is content to snuggle deeply into the fur on mom’s chest, as she makes her way, slowly through the trees of the exhibit.

Hoffmann’s Two-Toed Sloths are native to Central and South America. They are largely nocturnal and arboreal animals, primarily found in rainforests and deciduous forests. They are classified as “Least Concern” on the IUCN Red List. Their main threat in the wild is, believed to be, habitat destruction.

Study: Men who like spicy food have more testosterone

You can infer a lot when someone asks you to pass the hot sauce.

A study at the University of Grenoble in France found that men who liked spicier foods had higher testosterone levels than those who preferred milder foods. The study, published in the journal Physiology and Behavior, looked at 114 men ages 18 to 44.

The men were polled about their tastes and were then served mashed potatoes, with directions to add their desired level of hot sauce. The men who used more hot sauce tended to have higher testosterone levels. Higher testosterone levels are linked to social dominance and "daring behaviors...

Buns of Anarchy: A Retrospective of Jax Teller's Beautiful Butt

Now that Sons of Anarchy is over, there's a hole in my Tuesday evening schedule, there's no more SAMCRO and most importantly, no more copious shots of Jax Teller's bare butt in action. REAL TEARS. In memorial, here is a collection of all of Jax's butt, played by Charlie Hunnam's actual butt, in various emotional moments. I assure you, it's a tour de force.

Malala: Pakistan attacks a 'senseless and cold blooded act of terror'

Taliban militants killed 126 schoolchildren at a military-run school in Peshawar, Pakistan, authorities announced Tuesday. Malala Yousafzai, who was herself shot by the Taliban while on a school bus, has condemned the attacks, calling them a "senseless and cold-blooded act of terror."

Here's the 17-year-old Nobel Peace Prize winner's statement about the attacks:

I am heartbroken by this senseless and cold-blooded act of terror in Peshawar that is unfolding before us. Innocent children in their school have no place in horror such as this. I condemn these atrocious and cowardly acts and stand united...

Meet the Remarkable and Diminutive Dibbler

by Andrew Bleiman

Dibbler_H2Q8758

The Dibbler, an endangered carnivorous marsupial, has made a return to Perth, Western Australia, with the release of 54 individuals into a local metropolitan park, this October.

(147) 'Cmon guys - lets play a game and see how many of us we can stack on top of eachother' #DibblerStack

Dibbler groupPhoto Credits: Perth Zoo

The Perth Zoo bred animals were released into a 150 hectare (371 acre) fenced area at Whiteman Park, giving them a chance to establish in the absence of foxes and cats, which have likely contributed to their decline in the wild.

Lisa Mantellato, from Perth Zoo’s Native Species Breeding Program, said: “We have bred Dibblers for release into various habitats in the past, but this is the first time they have been returned to metropolitan Perth. Judging from sub-fossil records, Whiteman Park formed part of the Dibbler’s former natural range. We hope that through this program we can establish a self-sustaining population of Dibblers within the metropolitan parkland.”

Perth Zoo has been breeding Dibblers for release since 1997 resulting in the establishment of two new wild populations. In 1996, the first recovery plan was put in place by the Western Australia Department of Parks and Wildlife, with an aim to increase the species’ numbers and expand their distribution. The 2007 recovery plan maintains the need for a captive breeding colony to establish further populations.

Dr Tony Friend, from the Department of Parks and Wildlife said: “Establishing populations of small carnivores is always challenging and the Dibblers certainly fit that bill with a short life-span, matched with a ‘live fast and die young strategy to life’. So anything that limits the success of the first few years of breeding in the wild can have a big impact.”

Fourteen of the Dibblers will carry tiny radio transmitters, weighing less than one gram each, to assist in determining the success of the reintroduction into the predator-free area. University of Western Australia researchers will undertake the monitoring to learn more about the habits of this crepuscular animal and help inform future recovery actions.

This endangered Western Australian species was once found in coastal areas around the south-west corner of Australia, from SharkBay around to Albany and east to the western parts of South Australia, but by the early 1900s they were thought to be extinct. Only a chance discovery in 1967 revealed the species still survived, though in much smaller numbers. Since then, Dibblers have only been found to survive, in the wild, on two small Jurien Bay islands and in the Fitzgerald River National Park.

The Dibbler is threatened by loss of habitat caused by land clearing, the plant disease Phytophthora, die-back, and wildfires. On top of that, introduced foxes and cats also prey on them.

Perth Zoo’s Native Species Breeding Program breeds threatened Western Australian fauna for release into natural habitat. Since 1992, more than 2700 animals bred at the Zoo including Dibblers, Numbats, Western Swamp Tortoises and endangered frogs have been released into the wild and through this collaboration between Parks and Wildlife and Perth Zoo, a huge effort continues to save the State’s wildlife.

Macaulay Culkin Is Now in a Hip, Pizza-Themed Band

Pizza Underground, the pizza-themed Velvet Underground cover band that gets to boast Macaulay Culkin as a member, always seemed like an inside joke gone a little too far. But with their new music video for a medley of Velvet Underground songs that have apparently replaced all the references to heroin with fun lyrics about pizza, they've proven, they're the real hip-as-fuck deal.

The first Capybara in over 10 years has been born at Houston Zoo in Texas! The little male, named Mr. Pibb, was born to mom, Sunkist, and dad, Pop (not pictured). He is a very curious youngster and wasn't at all camera-shy. On December 10, he went outside for the first time with his mom. 

The baby was eating solid foods after only a few days, and even started 'borrowing' his mom's food to eat. He wanted to try everything in his mom's food bowl, and after eating it, he decided to get inside!

The Sony hack continues to unearth the entertainment industry's unmentionables — now in the form of secret aliases. While poring over the latest batch of documents leaked by the unidentified cybercriminal group Guardians of Peace, Fusion stumbled upon a folder that contained "publicity bibles" for recently released Sony films. The files within the folder detailed cast and crew contact directories, which included the fake names some of the studio's movie stars use(d) to do normal-people things.

Here are some of the aliases Fusion shared:

Tom Hanks: "Harry Lauder" and "Johnny Madrid"
Sarah Michelle Gellar: "Neely O'Hara"
Tobey Maguire: "Neil Deep"
Natalie Portman: "Lauren Brown"
Clive Owen: "Robert Fenton"

On September 30th, the Taipei Zoo welcomed the birth of a female Pangolin, named “Gung-wu”.

The tiny Pangolin, born with eyes half open, began crawling, within an hour of birth, in search of nourishment from her mother. Although the Pangolin mother was a willing participant, she was unable to provide an adequate supply of milk for the new baby.

Zoo staff were patient with the new mother, but when the baby began to lose weight, the decision was made to intervene on behalf of the newborn.  Now, zoo keepers provide 24 hour care and feeding for “Gung-wu”, and her weight and health have stabilized. 

Pangolins are mammals of the order Pholidota.  They are nocturnal insectivores and are native to Africa and Asia. As a result of increasing threats to Pangolins, mainly in the form of illegal, international trade in Pangolin skin, scales and meat, these species have received increasing conservation attention in recent years. In 2014, the IUCN (International Union for the Conservation of Nature) re-categorized all eight species of Pangolin on its Red List of Threatened Species, and each species is now classified as “Critically Endangered”.

Wake up, ’90s kids! French Toast Crunch is BACK

Wake up, ’90s kids! French Toast Crunch is BACK

Wake up, ’90s kids! French Toast Crunch is BACK

Attention all 90s kids! Your mornings are about to get better, because French Toast Crunch is BACK! General Mills announced that the super popular and deliciously sugary cereal will return to grocery store shelves in late January. This breaking news obviously means that ’90s kids around the world can finally start eating breakfast again. The beloved cereal met its demise in 2006, much to the dismay of cereal fans everywhere (probably not much to the dismay of parents, though). But thanks to a successful Facebook campaign, the cinnamon and sugar cereal is making a triumphant comeback. That’s social media at its finest! Let the French Toast Crunch return countdown begin! Happy Monday, everyone.

Screen Shot 2014-12-08 at 8.25.02 AM copy

For now the cereal will only be available in select grocery stores, but come January the box o’ goodness will go national. The packaging has been slightly updated—the cartoon dude who used to pour maple syrup over the mini-toasties apparently didn’t have the staying power of, say, the Trix rabbit. But who cares what’s on the box. What matters is what’s in it.

For old time’s (and new time’s) sake:

Baby Bats Rescued from Australia's Heat Wave

by Andrew Bleiman

Bat wrapped
Some may like it hot, but not Australia’s Fruit Bats.  A spring heat wave with temperatures over 100 degrees F has killed many adult Fruit Bats, leaving their babies orphaned and in need of care.  That’s why the Australian Bat Clinic and Wildlife Trauma Center has been inundated with rescued baby Bats in recent months.

Bat row 4

Entire colonies of Gray-headed Flying Foxes and Black Flying Foxes have been wiped out due to the extremely high temperatures.  Often, when the mothers die, their babies are still attached to their teats.  Without immediate rescue, these babies will face the same fate as their mothers.

When the baby Bats enter rehabilitation, rescuers’ first jobs are to help the babies feel secure and to feed them.  The rubber nipples tucked into the babies’ mouths help them feel as if they are still attached to their mothers’ teats.  When the babies are wrapped in tiny blankets (causing the babies to resemble little Bat burritos), they feel safe in their temporary home.  A little affection from the rescuers helps too.

After a few months, rescuers will release the baby Bats back into the wild. 

Flying Foxes are Bats that feed primarily on fruit, pollen, and nectar.  The world's 60 species of Flying Foxes are found in tropical regions.  Unlike insect-eating bats, which are usually smaller in size, Flying Foxes do not use echolocation to find food.  Instead, they have well-developed senses of smell and eyesight.  Many species of Flying Fox are threatened with extinction due to illegal hunting and persecution.

See more photos of the baby Bats below.

Re-watch one of the first viral videos as 'Numa Numa' turns 10

I remember watching the "Numa Numa" video as a freshman in high school and thinking it was the funniest thing I had ever seen. I made my mom watch it, I made my friends watch it — and it turns out, Slate notes, that an awful lot of other people were doing the exact same thing.

Today, Gary Brolsma's infectious, heartfelt performance of Romanian pop song "Dragostea Din Tei" turns 10 years old. The then-19 year old first uploaded his video to Newgrounds, because this was before YouTube was the behemoth it is today. CNN, VH1, Good Morning America and more came calling, and Brolsma's flash-in...

Would You Wear a Sheet of Paper Around Your Neck?

Ok, so it’s not actually paper, but it sure looks like a sheet of looseleaf, doesn’t it? Little Factory is no stranger to making great products, and their latest one, Paper Scarf, resembles a long sheet of notebook paper that you can wrap around your neck, just like a scarf made of wool or cashmere.

The Paper Scarf is made out of the paper-like Tyvek material, which is known for its durability. It’s also breathable and water resistant. So, while it looks like a basic sheet of paper, this scarf will actually keep you warm.

Little Alpaca Patrick at Zoo Berlin knows how to stay warm: playful jumping and kicking! And of course, some snuggling with mom, Olivia.

Alpacas, in the same family as camels and llamas, were domesticated in the Andes for use of their very dense, soft hair. Babies in the camelid family are called crias, from the Spanish word for baby, 'cría'.

Jaden Smith Wore a Space Suit to Go See Interstellar

Finally, the mystery of who shouted "That's my man, Nolan!" while wearing an "authentic-looking space suit" during an opening-week screening of Interstellar has been solved. It was America's Favorite Teen, Jaden Smith! He was spotted by the "spies" at The Hollywood Reporter. Though, to be fair, if you asked us before this leaked, "Which teen would dress up as a spaceman and shout out Chris Nolan at an Interstellar screening?" our first and only answer would've been Jaden Smith.

Jake Gyllenhaal Got Totally Jacked for Southpaw

by E. Alex Jung

Jake Gyllenhaal dropped 25 pounds to play a doe-eyed sociopath in Nightcrawler, and it looks like he also threw himself headlong into playing junior middleweight Champion Billy "The Great" Hope for Southpaw. Deadline has the first image from the film, showing a jacked Gyllenhaal (who reportedly put on 15 pounds of muscle for the role). "I had him training twice a day in the boxing ring, he did two-a-days seven days a week," said director Antoine Fuqua. "I think he broke up with his girlfriend because he was just in the gym every day. He was training like a fighter. I had him sparring, really getting hit. I put him in situations where I wanted to see what he was made of. No one but fighters understand the sacrifice it takes to be a fighter." Masculinity!

How a deaf couple had their baby officially registered with a sign name

by By

Parents tend to give their children names in their own languages. What could be more natural? When Tomato Lichy and Paula Garfield, a British couple who are both Deaf (the capital "D" indicates that Deaf is a cultural identity), were about to have their second child, they began to look into whether it was possible to give their baby, legally, a sign name.

A sign name is not just an English name spelled out with the fingers. While Deaf people do have English names, which can be written, spelled out, or mouthed, they use signs, created specially for individuals, to refer to each other within their...

The latent sexism of the male marriage proposal

When I got engaged earlier this year, well-meaning friends excitedly asked "how he proposed" — and then immediately looked at my left hand.

I've been told I can thank the Archduke Maximilian of Austria, who proposed to Mary of Burgundy with a diamond ring in 1477, for such instincts. But maybe I should thank the originators: the prehistoric men who demonstrated their control over women by tying braided grass around their wrists and ankles.

You'd think the obvious sexism of the modern proposal would rankle my progressive friends. Yes, plenty of brides have men in their bridal parties, more...

Lazarus the Gazelle Makes a Comeback

A newborn Thomson’s Gazelle, abandoned by its mother, was taken home by a senior keeper at ZSL Whipsnade Zoo and nursed back to health.

‘Larry’, who was born October 9th, is one of only four Thomson’s Gazelles in the UK, all of which live at ZSL Whipsnade Zoo.

After the little gazelle, Larry, was born, keepers noticed that his first-time mother was not returning to feed him, and they grew concerned for his survival. Senior staff-members at the zoo were forced to make the difficult decision to step in and hand-rear Larry, requiring Team Leader, Mark Holden, to bottle-feed the calf with goat milk five times a day and at regular intervals during the night.

Mark said, “It’s always a last resort to separate a calf from the group, but little Larry was getting very weak and needed our help. As soon as we got some milk into him he started to improve. We named him ‘Lazarus’---Larry for short---because for a moment there, we really didn’t think he was going to pull through.”

“We put a sky kennel in our lounge for him and he quickly settled into a routine. When he’d had his milk and a little walk-about, he’d just take himself back off to bed. It was a little tricky having Larry in the house. We had to keep an eye on him after each feed and get ready with a towel in case he started to urinate.”

Mark continued, “After two weeks, Larry was healthy enough to go back to ZSL Whipsnade Zoo and be reunited with the group, although he’s still getting a lot of extra care. He’s doing really well now, growing nicely and putting on weight. He has started to eat some solids like grass and hay, and he can be properly weaned in a few months.”

A Set of Tools for People Who Have Difficulties Eating

by Pinch Food Design

A Set of Tools for People Who Have Difficulties Eating

One of our dear friends and former Pinch intern, Louise Knoppert, debuted her latest product concept at Dutch Design Week. Besides the beautiful design, PROEF is smart and thoughtful. And we would expect nothing less from Louise, a self-proclaimed ambitious enthusiastic perfectionist studying at the Design Academy Eindhoven in The Netherlands.

As a result, she has been nominated for a Better Award and is going to an expo about health-care in Taiwan to expose more of the world to PROEF.

Below is Louise’s thesis of PROEF:

Every year, around 5000 people in the Netherlands have a tube installed in their stomachs permanently for tube feeding. All food is being pumped into their stomach directly. Many of these people are capable of living regular lives like us, except they are not allowed to eat or drink ever again.

During my research I found that there are more groups of people who have difficulties eating and drinking. These are people suffering from ALS, dementia, terminal illnesses, neurological disease, cancer or children who have troubles with food.

I can’t imagine life without food and drinks, and missing out on all the social events that revolve around it. I want to give these people something back, something to experience, something to share. I want to invite them to the dinner table again.

With the set of tools I developed you can create a new food experience.
 The set includes a variety of sensations, flavors, feelings, movements, actions, etc. 
The flavors are related to particular cuisines or events so people can relate properly to what others around them are having.

Quiz: Who Said It, Will Smith’s Kids or L. Ron Hubbard?

by Jessica Roy

The son of Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith, Jaden, is currently into reading books that "can't be pre-dated." Their daughter, Willow, is trying to make music that comes "from source energy and universal truths." L. Ron Hubbard is a prolific science-fiction writer who established a controversial religion that some have deemed a cult. The stuff that comes out of each of their mouths is virtually indistinguishable (their parents are, of course, no strangers to Scientology). Come, take our quote quiz, and see if you can tell the difference between something L. Ron Hubbard said and something the Fresh Prince's kids said.
