The Petting Zoo: The Week’s Top 10 Animal Videos

Kelly Conaboy | April 24, 2013 - 2:45 pm

Man, there’s a lot of sad koala stuff to be found on the Internet today! The first thing is this video of a poor koala in a zoo trying to climb a tree that is painted onto the wall, which you don’t even need to watch both because I explained it to you and because it is too sad and the people taking the video are annoying. And the second thing is this picture of a koala sitting in the post-logging remnants of his home in New South Wales. Jesus. WHAT’S WITH HUMANS AND THEIR NEGATIVE IMPACT ON KOALAS TODAY? I’m sorry for dumping all of this on you right before we get to the animal videos, the happiest part of our week, but I can’t deal with it alone! Ugggghh. KOOOOAAALLAAAAAAS! Let’s watch these videos before we fall any further into this headspace. We have a very, very good group today. The top 5? Give me a break. Pretty much all number ones. OK LET’S GO!

10. Classic Cat

9. Cat Licks Dog Awake

8. Mime-Texting Gibbon

7. Bear Catching Salmon

6. Vacuum Cat

5. Bathing A Baby Wombat

4. Typing With An Owl

3. Cat Wearing A Shark Costume Chases Duckling While Riding A Roomba

2. Cool Surfing Dog

1. Owl Chilling By A Fan

Organizing the top choices today was VERY difficult. I’m only a little disappointed that it isn’t the dead of summer right now, so number one and number two would make more sense. BUT WHATEVER, THEY ARE GREAT! “Cat Wearing A Shark Costume Chases Duckling While Riding A Roomba” has been taking the Internet by storm, which I am not totally on board with because I’m not a fan of when things are designed specifically for the Internet, but I do have to give it credit for its wild success, so it sits nicely at number three. “Typing With An Owl” is peaceful and beautiful, and “Bathing A Baby Wombat” is just cute as shit. CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR WINNERS (US)! SEE YOU NEXT WEEK!
