Friday favorites: Splash around with these animal rehab videos

I don’t know about you, but I’m sick of overcast skies and having to put on a bulky coat every time I go outside. If you live anywhere outside of the tropics, you’re probably fed up too.

So this week’s Friday favorite is a couple of videos showing how resilient marine animals can be. Find a happy place.

First up, here’s Eddie the otter playing basketball to beat his arthritis. OhmyGodisthiscute!

I love that the zookeeper says he was taken for “voluntary” X-rays. I can imagine how that conversation went. “Hey, Eddie, you’re getting up there in age. Wanna get some X-rays?”

Eddie shrugs. “Why the hell not?”

This next video has some graphic images, so you might not want to watch if you get upset easily. This giant turtle survived a shark attack five years ago, but her flippers didn’t. So scientists in Japan have made her prosthetic flippers which are helping her get around.

Isn’t science amazing? Do you have any amazing animal rehab videos to share?

  1. The one about the Sea Turtle’s Prosthetics was just amazing. It’s one of those Awwww moments. I love that there are people out there that care enough to help an injured animal. 🙂
