@ossobuco,
Well, as said: those aren't albinos but white donkeys. (A special breed from the Austrian-Hungarian empire times, nowadays breeded again (about 30 to 40 animals in the park; when one year old sold worldwide, about 250 animals now living worldwide)

@ossobuco,
That lion is still a baby. Maybe not a cub but definitely a juvenile. Doesn't mean he can't take a nice bite. Cute as the dickens though.

@Philis,
Philis, Killdeer get their name from the sound they make. It sounds like they're saying, "Kill deer." I don't know how the deer population responds to this.

I love how that bird looks. A face not only a mother can love. What is it? Doesn't matter. I love dat face.

@tsarstepan,
Thud.

Tsar, the next time you post something this cute, please provide a little warning. You don't want me thudding again, do you?

Unbelievable. Cute beyond words. Thanks, kid.

Letty, These little guys are amazing. Cute as they may seem, I don't want one. I was watching one of my nature shows. Two baby Tasmanian devils kept attacking their mother with such vigor that she decided to leave. I guess it's an approach to making those kids independent.
