Altruistic Animals

Altruistic Animals

Today we would like to share with you some amazing stories of animals who turned their selfless concern into loving action for the benefit of others. Let’s start with a cat named Kuu. Cat Assists Dog with Dementia. Cat Saves Baby from Danger. Dog Keeps Lost Child Safe and Warm. Cat Saves Caregiver from Fire. Dog Saves Family from Fire. Let’s now meet a bull calf named Oliver. Bull Calf gives Love to Blind Bison. Just like humans, we animals are beings that have feelings. There are times when each of us needs some support, and these are the opportunities for those close to us to let their nobility shine and give selflessly. I trust you have enjoyed today’s stories and are perhaps even inspired to lend a softer heart and a more generous hand to all of Earth’s inhabitants.

Slow Lorises: The Shy Ones

00:14:01

Slow Lorises: The Shy Ones

We are nocturnal and spend most of our time in the trees. We walk on all four limbs, slowly and silently. If we are spotted, we hide our face under our arms or stay still like a statue on the branches. That's why the Indonesian people named us malu malu, or the shy ones. The most prominent feature of us slow lorises is our big round eyes that point forward, providing excellent binocular vision and depth perception. We also have an excellent sense of smell. We are the only venomous primate in the world. We are predominantly solitary. In other words, we like our company. We have “grooming claws” to comb our dense fur and our loved ones. Like other animals, grooming is a way we interact with one another. We emit different sounds and each one has its own meaning. We slow lorises are on the brink of extinction due to the illegal pet trade and habitat loss. I would like to ask you this: please do not take us out of the wilderness, and please help protect us and save our beautiful home.

The Extraordinary Water Walkers

00:15:23

The Extraordinary Water Walkers

Have you ever watched a kung fu movie and been amazed at the martial art masters’ incredible feat of walking on water with lightning speed? For we animals, it’s not a mystery. More than 1,200 species of animals can walk on water. Some are great “slappers,” and others are “gliders.” These are two terms scientists use to describe how certain animals cross the water’s surface. In today’s program, we will meet some of these amazing water-walkers. Many larger animals are excellent slappers. One of them is the basilisk lizard, which is my kind! You can spot us in the rainforests of southern Mexico, Central America, and even into northwestern Colombia. We stay in trees and always love to be near water. Do you know what our secret trick of striding over the water is? When we run quickly on our rear legs, the fringed skin connecting our long toes unfolds in the water and creates a pocket of air to keep us from sinking. We also use our long tail as a counter-weight so that we can maintain balance and keep our posture upright. The common and curious Asian gecko is found in many warm climates in Asia and elsewhere and seems to defy gravity, as they run upside-down along ceilings. Another incredible animal is motivated to walk on water all due to love. Western grebes, found in western North America, are well known for their rhythmic water dance called “rushing.” The next time when you see us animals, no matter how small we are, take a minute to observe us, and you will find some hidden talents.

The Marvelous Abilities of Birds, Part 2 of 2

00:14:33

The Marvelous Abilities of Birds, Part 2 of 2

Today, we will share with you about the bird species’ vocalizations, which include both calls and songs. Generally, our calls are brief and serve as alarms or to keep a flock together. Our songs are longer and more complex and may serve as signals of courtship. The songs are also more melodious. Both chicks and human infants build sound templates in their brains by listening to their parents’ voices. Then they start to strengthen their vocal muscles by making nonsensical sounds. In the last stage, young birds will practice the same tune thousands of times and compare it with the template they memorized until they achieve a perfect match. Our vocalizations are made possible by a voice organ, unlike any other. The organ that birds use to vocalize is called a syrinx, and it is lower down, just before the windpipe enters the lungs. The syrinx has two sides, which our most-gifted singers can use to simultaneously produce high-frequency and low-frequency sounds, plus at different tempos and volumes. For us birds, the better we can vocalize, the more likely it is that we will have fulfilling lives.

Ushering in the Year of the Golden Rat

00:13:45

Ushering in the Year of the Golden Rat

This year, 2020, is the “Year of the Golden Rat” and an exceptionally significant event as we return to the first sign of the Lunar Zodiac cycle! We are going to introduce some interesting Lunar New Year customs from several nations to our splendid viewers today. Around the world, more than a billion people celebrate the Lunar New Year and participate in various vibrant festivities. Within Korea itself, millions of people travel to be with family during this special time called Seollal or Korean Lunar New Year. Also, the breakfast on Lunar New Year day is traditionally rice cake soup or tteokguk. The act of eating this soup signifies that one is now a year older. What are some of the Lunar New Year traditions observed in China? People will put up spring couplets written on red paper inside and outside the home and conduct a thorough house cleanup, which represents replacing the old with the new. Also, after the meal, everyone comes together to usher in the New Year which also includes bidding farewell to the current year. This is a moment of cherishing the present time and welcoming the hopeful new year. It is called Tết and celebrated for an entire week! A notable tradition of the Aulacese or Vietnamese people is to thoroughly clean and then furnish their homes with all sorts of special decorations in anticipation of the most important annual event in Aulacese or Vietnamese culture.

Better Understanding Animals: Marie-Noëlle Baroni and Telepathic Animal Communicator Laila del Monte (vegetarian), Part 1 of 3

Better Understanding Animals: Marie-Noëlle Baroni and Telepathic Animal Communicator Laila del Monte (vegetarian), Part 1 of 3

It will feature excerpts from our interview with the gifted American communicator Ms. del Monte and Ms. Baroni, who rescues animals and coaches some of them for filmmakers who wish to feature them in their movies. Laila del Monte has been communicating with animals since she was a child. At first, she thought it was something everyone could do. When she realized that her ability was a unique talent, she cultivated it and chose to dedicate her life to helping animals of all kinds. Marie-Noëlle Baroni, from France turned a natural affinity with animals into a special service for the motion-picture industry. The makers of “The Fox and the Child” as well as “Seasons” enlisted her to train the starring animals. She lives on her own educational farm, where visitors can meet some non-human movie stars and learn about caring for animals. “My name is Laila del Monte, and I communicate with animals. And so it’s a long journey of 25 years to transmit information about animal consciousness to people through teachings, seminars all over the world. There are people like Marie-Noëlle who work daily with animals. They establish a kind of silence-connection – I don’t really know what to call it. There is an internal silence and a connection that is established with the animal from day to day.” “But the extraordinary thing is that everybody has this ability. Everybody, from the youngest to the oldest, everybody has this. It’s like all learning.” “They teach us all the time, but we are the ones who have to learn. We have a responsibility to know them, to know their minds and to know how they work. They exist, they are there, and it is we who destroy their environment, and we are the ones who make all the mistakes. So our responsibility is to approach and understand them. And by understanding their consciousness, that’s how we can transform a little bit the things that are happening on our planet.”

Quokka – The World’s Happiest Animal

00:11:53

Quokka – The World’s Happiest Animal

With our round cheeks and wide smiles, we quokkas have been dubbed one of the cutest animals on our planet. We are covered with short, very course and thick, grizzled brown fur with lighter parts underneath. Our relatively short tail has very little hair, but our feet are very hairy! On our cute and lovely face are a big, black nose, a pleasing mouth, and a pair of charming black eyes. In 2013, quokkas were given the title of “The Happiest Animal in the World” by American news website HuffPost.Com, because to humans, we always seem to be smiling. Our cutest chubby-cheeked smile can range from a tiny beam to a toothy grin. It is not that the structure of our mouth or jaw makes us have to smile. It is our cheerful nature. Our biggest threat is deforestation, which reduces our habitat ranges and food sources. Climate change, which affects the vegetation and rainfall, is also a threat to us. We urgently call for global action to stop the destruction of natural habitats and the adoption by humans of the sustainable vegan lifestyle.

A Golden Age of Animals

00:13:50

A Golden Age of Animals

Gold-colored animals are relatively rarer, so they are admired by humans, just like the precious metal! Regarded by some as the world’s most beautiful equine, our breed is famed for our toughness, resilience, and endurance, in addition to our legendary speed and intelligence. Some of our breed looks as if they had been dipped in gold! Another animal with a radiant, golden coat is the Golden Retriever, which is one of America’s most popular dog breeds. A domestic cat known for having a golden coat is the ginger cat or tabby. The golden jewel scarab beetle of Central America is one of the world’s most brightly colored insects. The goldenrod crab spiders, native to North America, make flowers such as goldenrod and daisies their home. The Panamanian golden frog is a type of toad. This species is cherished by Panamanians and is the national animal. Banana slugs are often bright golden yellow and sometimes spotted with brown blotches, thus resembling a ripe banana.

Remarkable Sharks

00:12:55

Remarkable Sharks

Welcome to our show entitled, “Remarkable Sharks.” Sharks are one of the most misunderstood animals in the world. People just do not realize that we are much friendlier than believed. We are often portrayed as a villain in the movies. Actually, we are quite a unique and fascinating species. We have existed for more than 420 million years, appearing on earth even before the dinosaurs. Also, we are very diverse, with over 500 species, and researchers believe that there may still be undiscovered varieties. The whale shark is the largest fish in the ocean, whose length can reach up to 18 meters. The smallest shark is the dwarf lantern shark, which is around 17-20 centimeters in length, as tiny as a human hand. On average, a shark can swim 32-64 kilometers per hour. We do not have bones in our bodies. Our skeleton is made of cartilage, which makes us light and flexible, and allows us to rise and sink quickly in the ocean. Sharks do not sleep the way that humans do. Some species constantly swim, even while they sleep. They keep their mouths open while moving so that oxygen-rich water can pass through the gills. Anna Breytenbach, a professional telepathic animal communicator, has made contact with the white sharks and received a message from them. She says they are “asking for peaceful coexistence.” We sharks are peaceful beings. When people swim close to our area, we just want to know who they are and feel their energy. We will leave them alone because we sense their friendly vibes. We sharks play a vital role in balancing the ocean’s ecosystem. Without sharks, the population of many ocean species would be reduced. The simple, most important way to help sharks avoid going extinct is by adopting a plant-based diet. Please be a hero for all of us animals.

Secrets of Longevity in Animals, Part 1 of 2

Secrets of Longevity in Animals, Part 1 of 2

In this two-part program, we will showcase some of the species that live the longest. They are blessed with what is called “biological immortality.” We lobsters are one of those species! Researchers believe that the secret our longevity is an enzyme called telomerase. It protects the ends of chromosomes from shortening and losing some Deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) when cells divide. Another species that exhibits “biological immortality” is the naked mole rat. Aside from their defenses against cancer, naked mole rats have two ways to keep their bodies young. Number one, they can withstand high amounts of oxidative stress. Number two, they have high levels of chaperone proteins that stabilize the correct folding of other proteins. As far as we know, Greenland sharks have the longest lifespan of any vertebrate species on the planet. One possible explanation is their extremely slow metabolic rate. Giant tortoises are world-renowned for their long lives. The scientists noted that compared to the mammals, the tortoises had more immune system-protecting gene copies - 12 to be exact, while the mammals only had one. These genes assist the body in neutralizing infections.

Amazing Ants and their Cooperative Communities

00:16:23

Amazing Ants and their Cooperative Communities

We ants have been around for more than 130 million years or since the early Cretaceous Period. Today, there are about 14,000 species of us, and an estimated 10 quadrillion ants live on the earth. You can find us everywhere except Antarctica. As social beings, we all live in colonies of various sizes, from just several ants living in a twig to supercolonies with many millions of individuals. We are peace-loving beings that never compete with others in our colony. Our members always help and do whatever is best for the whole community. We automatically share the labor and divide ourselves into groups to perform different tasks. In a typical ant colony, there is a queen who is much larger than all other nest members. The queen’s primary function is to populate the colony by laying eggs. She is the mother of all the ants in the nest. Even though she is called the queen, she never gives orders or directs others on what to do. When a colony is mature and ready to develop new colonies, it will produce males and future queens and both have wings. The male ants have small heads with large eyes, long antennae, and small mandibles. Their only function is to mate with the future queens, then pass on afterward. Aside from the queen, a typical ant colony includes numerous sterile females known as workers. These laborers are responsible for building the nest and keeping it in order, finding food, looking after the brood and queen, and safeguarding the colony. Their lifespan can be between one to three years. Each worker ant joins a group of ants that perform only one task. Yes, we cooperative ants get our jobs done amicably and efficiently through dividing our work among different teams. Most ant colonies stretch deep underground. Some even reach as deep as 8 meters below the surface. We ants are smart and adaptable animals. When the situation changes, we can easily switch from one task to another to handle an emerging incident. Being flexible serves us very well. While humans speak to each other and use body language to communicate, we create pheromones, each containing a scent message to inform others. Other ants decode the meaning using their antennae. We hope you have been inspired by our cooperation and unity and wish you high spirits and good health.

Exceptional Friendships Between Different Species

00:16:35

Exceptional Friendships Between Different Species

Today we will showcase several unusual relationships between animals that are very different from each other. In 2004, a massive earthquake beneath the Indian Ocean caused tsunamis that devastated the surrounding coasts. The high waters swept a hippopotamus family in Kenya down a river and into the ocean. The only survivor, a baby, ended up on a reef off the Kenyan coastline. They named him Owen and arranged for him to be transported to Haller Park, a Kenyan wildlife sanctuary. Owen was put in an enclosure that contained an Aldabra giant tortoise known as Mzee. The two began sharing food, swimming, and sleeping together, and sometimes Mzee would stretch out his neck so Owen could lick it. The next story rather reminds me of a fairy tale. One day in 2013, Mr. Berge and his German shepherd companion Tinni were taking a walk through the woods near their home. They came across an amiable red fox who Mr. Berge named Sniffer. Amazingly, the domesticated dog and the wild fox took a liking to each other.

The Diverse and Adaptable Tree-Climbing Crabs

00:12:44

The Diverse and Adaptable Tree-Climbing Crabs

We crabs come in all different sizes and colors, with other diverse characteristics, and have been known to survive in all sorts of living environments. Crabs that climb trees are so diverse it would probably take humans years and years to discover us all. The coconut crab is classified by your scientists as a hermit crab and is the largest land-living and tree-climbing crab in the world. We usually live in sand burrows we dig ourselves. Normally, our lifespan is between 30 and 60 years. We are able to climb up as high as 6 meters quite easily. Caribbean hermit crabs have a lot in common with coconut crabs. For example, they live on land and females go to the ocean to lay eggs. Another kind of tree-climbing crab is the one that lives in mangroves. Mangroves are the perfect environment for such crabs to live in and develop. One common characteristic shared between all tree-climbing crabs in mangrove areas is that they do not live far from the sea. We tree-climbing crabs truly cherish our lives and plea with humans to have compassion, never eat us or other animals, and protect our habitats.

Hoatzin: The Enigmatic Bird

00:11:05

Hoatzin: The Enigmatic Bird

We hoatzins live in trees and shrubs among the swamps, tropical riverbanks, and mangroves around the Amazon and Orinoco rivers in South America. We are Guyana’s national bird and are honorably included in Guyana’s Coat of Arms. Interestingly, from an evolutionary standpoint, nobody really knows where we came from! We have an extraordinarily colorful appearance. With an un-feathered blue face and maroon eyes, our small head is topped with a cool, spiky 10-centimeter rufous crest, just like a punk rocker’s mohawk. Therefore, some locals call us “Punk Rock Birds.” Hoatzins are exclusively vegan, and along with the Owl Parrot, we are the only two bird species that primarily eat leaves. We also sometimes eat buds, flowers, and fruits as dessert. Foraging in the early morning and evening, we spend the rest of the day comfortably roosting. We have a very potent odor, and are also known as the stink or skunk bird of the marshes. We have a super-sized crop at the base of our throat to store and digest consumed leaves and fruits. This stinky smell is from the chemicals released during the fermentation process taking place in the crop, where bacteria slowly break down the fibrous leaves for us. The rumination process is just like a cow’s, so some people call us “flying cows.” What’s so special about our chicks? They have claws on their wings! While some other birds, such as chickens, kea parrots, and ostriches also have vestigial claws on their wings, we are the only living bird with functional ones that are important to our survival. These cool and handy wing claws are present and functional only when we are young. They disappear once we reach adulthood. The next time you join an Amazon River cruise, look for our spiky orange Mohawk, and listen for us!

The Gentle Addax of Africa

00:13:47

The Gentle Addax of Africa

One of our distinguishing characteristics is a tuft of brown hair that grows from the base of our horns to our forehead. Then we have what looks like a white letter X across the bridge of our nose and around our eyes. We addax have a stocky build, similar to horses. Our diet is 100% plant-based. Although males are dominant in many species, we have the highest regard for our females. But due to habitat loss and humans’ inconsiderate activities over the years, our population in the wild has been drastically reduced. Humans must understand the impact that their values and lifestyles have. Each person who changes to a plant-based diet generates a wave of positive and benevolent energy that touches all living beings on the planet. Supreme Master Ching Hai is a cherished champion of compassion for us all. She tirelessly conveys to the world’s citizens that killing and eating animals are acts of fundamental immorality.

The Wonderful World of Whales

00:17:52

The Wonderful World of Whales

We whales are mysterious beings and one of the oldest aquatic mammals in our world. Although we live in the oceans, 50 million years ago, our ancestors lived on land. Today, we are living almost everywhere in the world’s oceans, from the North to the South Pole. We have a lot of human-like features - we breathe air, have a little hair, are warm-blooded, and feed our babies with milk. There are two main families: baleen and toothed whales. Baleen whales are generally huge, especially the great blue whale, considered the biggest animal in the world. The biggest of the toothed whale family are my cousins, the sperm whales. They are known for having the largest brain in the world. Beluga whales, the only white-colored whales, thus also known as white whales, live in the Arctic Ocean. They live and migrate in pods. Another talent they have is being able to swim backward. More and more studies prove that whales are essential to the marine ecosphere and help maintain our earth’s health. We are some of the most intelligent and compassionate inhabitants of the ocean. We help to mitigate climate change by boosting the production of phytoplankton that absorb 40% of the CO2 in the air and release 50% of the oxygen found in our atmosphere.

Wings of Love, Part 1 of 2: The Romantic Bowerbird

00:13:55

Wings of Love, Part 1 of 2: The Romantic Bowerbird

They are among the best representatives of birds, as they have an aesthetic sense, and express their love and affection through art. There are 20 species of bowerbirds living in Australia and Papua New Guinea. With most varieties, the male builds a sophisticated structure called a bower for courtship purposes. The range of objects he gathers is amazing; fruits, flowers, feathers, and even human-made items like buttons, bottle caps, glass marbles, ballpoint pens, you name it! The male bowerbirds need to be excellent artists to win a lady's heart, as females are style-oriented and exceptionally choosy. She is the one to decide if the bower is true artwork, and, along with other factors that are considered, selects the partner with the most beautiful bower. That's why the male bowerbird makes his structure so eye-catching, so as to impress the hen initially to earn a place in the finals. Even their eggs are intricate works of art. Many human beings have been inspired to create their own artworks by observing the skillful designs of the adored bowers. A well-known American scientist, Dr. Jared Diamond, referred to the bowerbirds as the “most human-kind of all birds.” Bowerbird art has inspired humanity's contemporary art. So the bowerbird's repurposing habit has influenced people to a degree. Jane Perkins, who is known for her recycled art, has also adopted similar practices. She uses discarded materials, mostly plastic, to re-interpret masterpieces of past artists. And she named her website. “Blue Bowerbird.” Lovely! In addition, the bowerbird has inspired many plastic recycling initiatives as well. For example, Qantas Airways had the world's first-ever zero-waste commercial flight in May 2019. This event initiated the company’s mission to remove 100 million pieces of single-use plastic from flights by the end of 2021, thus reducing the inflight rubbish generated by 75%. What is the name of this noble initiative? The Bowerbird Project!

Therapy Animals: Incarnations of Love

I’m Aina, a vegan miniature horse from magnificent Germany. People are more relaxed when they spend time with animals because we give unconditional love and do not judge them in any way. Research has shown that caring for animals increases overall human well-being in many respects. Dogs, cats, rabbits, horses, pigs and other species serve as therapy animals. Many agree that simply being around their dog companion fills their heart with a sense of happiness, contentment, and peace. Those with cat companions also express how much fun, peace, and happiness these amazing beings bring into their lives. Daniel is an Indian Runner duck and a registered emotional support animal. We beautiful and intelligent miniature horses also serve as therapy animals. We have aided many, including survivors of tragedies and disasters. Animals give tremendous love and can help meet people’s physical, behavioral, and emotional needs.

The Coolest Animal Dads, Part 2 of 2

00:15:20

The Coolest Animal Dads, Part 2 of 2

In this episode, I will introduce more extraordinary cool daddies in the animal world. They are all champion fathers in their own ways. The endurance winner is the emperor penguin dad, for sure! These fluffy and wobbling birds live and breed in the Antarctic landscape. In winter, after the female transfers her precious single egg to her partner, she goes to the sea straight away to replenish herself with food. To keep the egg warm in the brutal Antarctic weather, he must balance it on top of his feet and press it up against his “brood pouch,” a skin flap on his belly, and cover the egg with his plumage. Additionally, he utilizes group hugs to his advantage! Emperor penguins are famous for creating massive huddles, and these gatherings allow penguins to save energy for warming their cherished chicks that are still developing. Until the moms’ return, these dads guard their eggs alone for around 75 days. They also fast for about 120 days from the beginning of the breeding cycle, which ultimately results in their body weight being reduced by nearly half. Male Barbary macaques are perhaps the proudest animal dads. They often interact with their offspring for hours and carry them; this doting on infants includes caring for the young of others in their group, called a troop, as well. These proud dads nudge and chatter their teeth while holding up their darlings in gatherings. Sand gobies are passionate papas at the top of their game. After the eggs are laid, they defend the eggs intensively and use their pectoral fins to fan them with a motherly touch. This action creates oxygenated currents around the eggs, which encourages them to grow. Giant water bug fathers are the clear winners of the weightlifting category. The female will lay and stick her eggs on the dad’s back. A giant water bug dad can carry up to 150 eggs on him! When talking about heroic fathers, few can match the Burchell’s sandgrouse. The brave sandgrouse daddies take on a crucial mission; these frequent flyers make long daily trips to watering holes, sometimes traveling over 160 kilometers, to fill up for their families. After the little ones have their drink, the daddies immediately take sand baths, to remove the strong scent of wet feathers to deter predators. In this series, we have introduced some extraordinary paternal parenting skills in the animal kingdom, which make for a wonderful dedication to all fathers, be they human or animal.
