Chimpanzees are generally fearful of water, which makes the fact that Cooper the chimpanzee has learned to swim quite a feat. But that he's also learned to breathe underwater with a SCUBA tank is truly incredible.
Dogs are no strangers to chilling out but chilling out in the passenger seat of a van while cruising down the California freeway, paw hanging out the window as the wind blows through your fur? That's a whole different story. This Siberian Husky definitely knows a thing or two about easy riding. Good thing these two dudes caught it on film.
Hurricane Irene is on her way and preliminary reports suggests she'll be a big one. To get an idea of just how big though, check out this aerial video of Irene filmed from the International Space Station as it passed over the Eastern seaboard.
Soldiers know the value of surprise, especially when returning home from active duty to their loved ones.

12 years after losing her fingers as a result of sepsis brought on by chicken pox, 15-year-old Chloe Holmes has become the youngest person in Europe (and the first outside of America) to be fitted with bionic fingers.
Anyone who's seen 'March of The Penguins' knows how lonely being a penguin can be. The frigid winters. The vast and icy emptiness of the Arctic.
Still, you wouldn't necessarily think any of that trademark penguin loneliness carried over to life at the zoo. Not so. Just look at this video taken at Fota Wildlife Park in Cork, Ireland. While all the other penguins scurry off to greet the approaching food truck, one lone penguin stands alone, gripped by an overwhelming feeling of social isolation. Either that or he just wasn't hungry.
Is that a hedgehog on the floor or are you just happy to see us? This dog is so excited and/or anxious about the prickly brown pile on the floor that he's decided to skip today's walk and just run in place.
In reality, we think he's probably trying to dig a hole so he can expose the hedgehog's soft, defenseless underside but that's not nearly as cute to think about. Thank goodness for laminate flooring.
The tortoise may be able to outrun the hare but he's no match for the motorized wheelchair. Cruiser, a wily desert tortoise, is a fierce competitor, but an elderly, wheelchair-bound gentleman named Josef wins by a nose.
TRON Guy Jay Maynard is back and this time he's got a little bit of corporate and creative muscle behind him. Created by San Francisco based agency Ryactive for Duck Brand duct tape, 'Duck TRON' is a colorful, duct tape send-up of the sci-fi flick's famous racing sequences. And who's the 'user' behind the races? Maynard, of course.
The video, which went live less than a week ago, has already racked up more than 300,000 views on Vimeo.
