10 Exotic Animals You Can Keep as Pets at Home

How to keep an exotic pet. It can be a skunk, a fennec, or even a capybara. Above all, it’ll cost you quite a lot of money and effort to take care of one of those creatures. But if you’re ready to accept the challenges and responsibilities, pay attention to these important tips any exotic pet owner must follow. TIMESTAMPS: Capybara 1:08 Fennec 2:23 Axolotl 3:28 Sugar Glider 4:49 Genet 5:56 Hedgehog 6:56 Electric Blue Crayfish 7:43 Kinkajou 8:36 Fox 9:40 Skunk 11:14 Music: https://www.youtube.com/audiolibrary/music SUMMARY: - The capybara is a huge but very friendly rodent that can weigh up to 140 lb. This intelligent animal can make friends with anyone and gets along well with cats, dogs, and birds. You can easily train your capybara, and it won’t show any resistance or aggression. - The fennec is the size of a chihuahua, weighs no more than 3 lb, and is getting more and more popular as a pet. It is an extremely friendly creature that’s full of energy. - Despite being a popular domestic pet, the axolotl is on the verge of total extinction. Catching this amphibian in natural waters is prohibited, but it’s OK to breed it at home. - Sugar gliders are incredibly affectionate and strongly attached to their owners and the animals they live with. Flying squirrels are nonaggressive, and they respond well to voice intonation and can be trained in simple commands. - Genets get really attached to their homes. Despite its exotic looks, the genet is unpretentious. Its main needs are regular feedings and a clean tray. - Hedgehogs are good-natured and have an amazing ability to get used to home conditions quickly. Remember that hedgehogs are predators, and raw meat should be the core of their diet. - The electric blue crayfish need clean water, a large aquarium, and a place to hide in there. - The kinkajou is curious and loves following its owner wherever they go, hanging off their shoulders and sitting on their lap. They don’t really make any trouble and easily adapt to a new home. - Foxes have quite a specific character: they are devoted but independent and very curious, trustful, and playful. Finding a common language with this pet will take a long time, so you have to be patient. - Skunks are affectionate and very loyal, much like dogs. A tame skunk doesn’t use its fetid weapons at home. The main thing is to regularly comb out the animal and trim its claws. #exoticpet #animalplanet #exoticanimal Subscribe to Bright Side : https://goo.gl/rQTJZz ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Our Social Media: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/brightside/ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/brightgram/ 5-Minute Crafts Youtube: https://www.goo.gl/8JVmuC ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- For more videos and articles visit: http://www.brightside.me/

What to Do When You See a Snake

Are you afraid of snakes? Very few people would call an encounter with a snake pleasant even if it’s just a harmless grass snake. Unexpectedly coming face-to-face with a snake can be a scary experience. There are some specific signs that can help you to distinguish whether the snake is venomous or not. Herpetologists explain specific differences between venomous and non-venomous snakes. However, there are so many species of snakes in the world that there can be certain exceptions. Nevertheless, these are some general differences that you should be aware of. At Bright Side, we’ve decided to share these signs with you along with the pattern of behavior you need to follow in order to avoid dangerous consequences after an encounter with a venomous snake. TIMESTAMPS: Look at its head 1:19 Pay attention to its pupils 1:43 Examine the space between its eyes 2:26 Note its color and behavior 2:51 Observe its tail 3:22 Beware of the way it swims 3:50 Snake-proof your property 4:43 Pay attention to trees and bushes 5:10 Choose the right shoes 5:39 Turn off the lights 6:03 Never follow a snake 6:28 What to do in case you’ve been bitten 7:00 #venomoussnakes #snakebite #poisonoussnakes Music by Epidemic Sound https://www.epidemicsound.com/ SUMMARY: - One of the most obvious signs of a poisonous snake is its triangular head. Although not all venomous snakes have it, their necks are usually distinctly skinnier than their heads. - Most venomous snakes have elliptical and vertical pupils, while non-venomous snakes have round ones. But non-venomous snakes can easily change the shape of their pupils in dangerous situations to look more powerful and frightening to their opponent. - Venomous snakes have a little advantage over their non-venomous peers when it comes to hunting. They’ve got a heat-sensitive pit that helps them locate their prey through infrared radiation. - Poisonous snakes are often more vibrant, both in their coloring and behavior. If you see a beautiful bright-colored snake, chances are that it is, in fact, venomous. - You can always recognize a venomous snake by a visible line separating 2 rows of scales at the end of its tail. If you see a single row, you can sigh with relief: this snake is not venomous. - Some reptile experts say that a lot of the time, venomous snakes can be recognized while swimming. They prefer to keep their entire bodies visible above the water as opposed to non-venomous snakes that swim with their bodies under the water. - Whether you live in the country or you’ve got a summer cottage, the best way to keep snakes at bay is to get rid of their favorite hiding places: tall grass and fallen branches. - Always wear closed-toed shoes whenever you decide to take a walk in the country or the woods. - If you enjoy camping, here's a little trick for you to avoid snakes. Cover up all sources of light as you go to sleep, and never forget to shake your clothes out in the morning. - There are a lot of cases when people are bitten simply because of their curiosity. They only do it if they feel threatened, and stalking them will definitely provoke this reaction. - The first thing you must do is to call an ambulance. Once that’s done, try to figure out if it was a venomous snake that bit you. - As the ambulance is on its way, it’s crucial that you try to stay calm and don’t move. - As for the popular method of sucking the venom out of the wound, it may not be such a good idea after all. The person trying to suck the venom out, whether it’s you or someone else, risks cross-contamination through the mouth.

10 Extinct Animals Scientists Are Ready to Bring Back

Do you know that scientists are almost ready to bring back some species that have been long gone? A T-Rex and other dangerous creatures aren't on the VIP list, so we won't see them in the not-so-distant future. But some of our most beloved characters from the Ice Age movies can be brought back to life! Instead of using the controversial term “cloning,” scientists prefer to say “make un-extinct.” To-may-to, to-mah-to, the idea is the same. An animal that died out thousands of years ago can't be brought back to life unless it's cloned. And therein lies the problem. For successful cloning, scientists need to have almost completely undamaged animal DNA. That's why some species are more likely to be resurrected than others. Those animals that died out not so long ago are better candidates for un-extinction. They might still be preserved in museums or in permafrost that formed during the most recent ice age. TIMESTAMPS: The woolly mammoth 2:01 The saber-toothed tiger 3:00 The Moa 3:48 The ground sloth 4:27 The dodo 5:19 Woolly rhinoceros 6:12 The Irish elk 6:44 The Baiji river dolphin 7:26 The Siberian unicorn 8:05 The Neanderthal 8:55 #extinctanimals #siberianunicorn #iceage Music: https://www.youtube.com/audiolibrary/music SUMMARY: - While most of the woolly mammoths died out about 10,000 years ago, there was a population of about 500 to 1,000 of them living on Wrangel Island as recent as 1650 B.C.E. The woolly mammoth was roughly the size of an African elephant. - The saber-toothed tiger was about the size of your typical modern-day big cats. It weighed from 200 to 600 pounds and could get up to 13 feet long. The saber-toothed tiger usually had a muscular neck, bobbed tail, powerful front legs, and dagger-like teeth that protruded from the upper jaw and could grow just under a foot long! - The moa was a huge flightless bird that looked kinda like an ostrich, minus the wings. We know of about 10 members of the moa family. Some were no bigger than a turkey while others reached a height of 10 feet, making this bird the largest that has ever inhabited our planet. - Ground sloths are likely to be successfully resurrected since they were still walking the Earth about 8,000 years ago. Even better, some samples of their DNA have already been received from undamaged hairs of this animal. - The dodo became extinct just 80 years after it had been discovered. Its only known habitat was Mauritius Island, where the dodo had been living peacefully for who knows how long until the Dutch showed up in the 1590s. - Besides the woolly mammoth, there’s one more fluffy extinct creature, the woolly rhinoceros, that scientists want to bring back. This animal still lived in the Arctic snows pretty recently, about 10,000 years ago. This furry rhino is quite famous too; it often makes an appearance in ancient cave art, like in the French Chauvet-Pont-d'Arc Cave. - The Irish elk, also called the giant deer, was one more animal that didn't quite manage to survive the Ice Age. This creature mostly died out about 12,000 years ago. But researchers have discovered Irish elk fossils in Siberia that are only 7,000 to 8,000 years old. - The Baiji river dolphin went extinct in 2006, making it the first cetacean (that’s whales, dolphins, and porpoises) to die out directly due to the negative impact of human activity. It's obvious by now that since the extinction is quite recent, there’s a sea of DNA samples at hand that make resurrection pretty much a guaranteed success. - A Siberian unicorn skull discovered in Kazakhstan proved that the animal had actually disappeared just 29,000 years ago. That’s good news for people who wanna see a real unicorn someday! - Bringing the Neanderthal back would be the easiest task of them all. Scientists already have a map of its genome. It’s not a question of whether or not we can, but if we should… Subscribe to Bright Side : https://goo.gl/rQTJZz ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Our Social Media: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/brightside/ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/brightgram/ 5-Minute Crafts Youtube: https://www.goo.gl/8JVmuC ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- For more videos and articles visit: http://www.brightside.me/

12 Strange Behaviors That Are Normal in Other Countries

Did you know that the “okay” sign means “money” in Japan, “zero” in France, and is even considered a sexual insult in Brazil? Yikes! That's definitely not a situation you wanna find yourself in! Culture and location sure can make a difference when it comes to appropriate behavior and gestures. Every country has its own laws, traditions, rules, and specific features that might seem strange and even shocking to the people of other cultures. For example, did you know that in Denmark, people have picnics in cemeteries? Or that Tibetans show their tongue to greet others? Or that the Vietnamese consider crossed fingers offensive? Our world is amazing and unique and that’s what Bright Side keeps reminding our readers. The following 16 facts confirm this statement. TIMESTAMPS: In Demark, people have picnics in cemeteries 0:47 People in Thailand don't let others touch their head 1:32 In many Muslim countries, the left hand is considered the “dirty” one 2:13 In Norway, people don't compliment others to their face 2:43 People in Malaysia point with their thumb 3:15 Koreans don't write names in red 3:43 In Australia, sitting in the back of a taxi is rude 4:20 Tibetans show their tongue to greet others 4:55 People in China celebrate their birthday according to the Lunar calendar 5:35 The Vietnamese consider crossed fingers offensive 6:09 Indians don't say “thank you” too often 6:35 Maasai tribe members spit at each other to show respect 7:11 #strangetraditions #foreigncountries #strangerules Music by Epidemic Sound https://www.epidemicsound.com/ SUMMARY: - For most of us, a cemetery is reserved for grieving families and an overall gloomy atmosphere. But believe it or not, it's not that uncommon to see a happy Danish family having a picnic or a young couple sunbathing there! - In many countries, patting someone on the head is a sign of approval and care, but that’s not the case in Thailand. Thai people strongly believe that the head is the most sacred and important part of the body where your soul resides. - Muslims usually use their left hand to clean themselves after going to the bathroom. You must use your right hand for greeting people and eating meals. - People in Norway are way more subtle with their compliments than, say, Americans are. They don't really like to put others on the spot and make them feel embarrassed by their words. - In Malaysia, pointing at someone with your index finger is considered really rude and offensive. You can kinda get away with this if you point at an animal or an object. But when it comes to people, Malaysians use another hand gesture. - In a lot of countries, it’s perfectly fine to use red ink to make someone's written name even more noticeable. In South Korea, though, locals would never do something like that. This superstition goes back to the times when red ink was used to write deceased people's names on the family register. - In the U.S., sitting in the front passenger seat next to the taxi driver would be really weird. That’s why it’s more common in America to sit in the back of the taxi. But in Australia, New Zealand, Scotland, Ireland, and the Netherlands, sitting in the back can be considered impolite. - If you go to Tibet, you're guaranteed to have fun every time you meet someone simply because Tibetans often stick their tongue out to say “hello”! This strange tradition originates from past times. - People in China add one year to their total age on their Lunar New Year's Day. That's why people in China can be one or even two years older in their age-counting system than in the international one. - In Vietnam, crossing your index and middle fingers over each other represents genitals, obviously making it an incredibly offensive gesture to show someone. - Indians take “thank you” way more seriously! If you say it in the wrong context, where it’ll sound insincere, it may even get you into trouble. - For the Maasai people of Kenya and northern Tanzania, spitting at one another is seen as a sign of blessing and respect. They also often spit on their palms before shaking hands.

How to Tell Similar-looking Animals from One Another. There are approximately 7.7 million species of animals on our planet. With such an abundance of life forms, it's not surprising that people tend to confuse certain animals. We’ll teach you how to tell even the most similar looking animals from one another. You’ll never make the old mistakes again and will be able to easily find the difference between crocodiles and alligators, llamas and alpacas, leopards and jaguars and many other creatures.

Rabbits vs hares 0:46
Moths vs butterflies 1:35
Sheep vs goats 2:21
Hedgehogs vs porcupines 3:15
Llamas vs alpacas 4:11
Crocodiles vs alligators 4:56
Sea lions vs seals 5:50
Wasps vs bees 6:37
Frogs vs toads 7:15
Dolphins vs porpoises 7:54
Turtles vs tortoises 8:29
Leopards vs jaguars 9:04


-Hares are typically faster and larger than rabbits. Their ears and strong hind legs are also longer, and they have bigger feet.
-Butterflies have club-shaped antennae that look like a thin shaft with a bulbous tip. As for moths, their antennae are either serrated or feathery.
-You will notice that sheep hold them down whereas the tails of goats proudly stay up.
-Like all rodents, porcupines have big front teeth. As for hedgehogs, their snouts and teeth are pointy, and they are omnivores, feasting on insects, frogs, plants, and fruit.
-Mature llamas are much larger than alpacas, whose weight typically varies between 100 lb and 170 lb. As for an adult llama, it can weigh as much as 400 lb.
-Crocodiles are the lucky owners of special glands, which they use to excrete excess salt. As for alligators, their salt glands aren't so well developed. That's why they mostly live in fresh water.
-Sea lions' flippers are larger and covered with skin. Seals have a thinly webbed flipper, and each small toe has a claw. Seals prefer solitude, and sea lions love gathering in big companies and hanging out with friends.
-Bees are hairy: they need this feature to dip into flowers to collect pollen. Also, their rear legs are flat. Bees look more stocky.
-The skin of most frogs is smooth, while a toad’s skin is thick and bumpy. Frogs' legs are long and slender, and their eyes are big and bulging.
-Most dolphins have pointy faces, curved dorsal fins, and slender bodies. Porpoises have triangular back fins, robust bodies, and rounded faces.
-Turtles have webbed feet as they live mostly in water, and this makes swimming easier. Also, their shells are lighter and flatter.
-You can find jaguars in Central and South America and sometimes in the southwest of the USA. As for leopards, they dwell in Asia and Africa. Jaguars have smaller spots. Leopards are more slender and a bit smaller than jaguars.
