Two tiger cubs, one male, one female were taken from her mother when she killed the third one in her litter. They were subsequently fed by a wet nurse, Hla Htay, and when we say breastfed, we mean literally, straight from her breasts.
Among animals, such expressions of cross-species nursing are not uncommon, says Walter Hurley, professor of lactation at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. “Often, we’ll hear of females that adopt young from different species,” he says. They include dogs that nurse cats and cats that seem happy to be suckled by hedgehogs.

Meaning it keeps you awake, a bit horny and somehow sets a disco beat rocking in your head. It also makes your heart beat faster, and put on a hot glow that suggests one’s thermo-regulation system is out of whack.
Fear makes us act irrationally. That’s kind of its “thing.”
Which is why Big Nick admittedly dumb reaction to the sight of an unacceptably large spider crawling on his bathroom wall is understandable.
But just because we the viewers can forgive Nick his momentary lapse in judgment in the form of a brass knuckle solution to his arachnid problem, that doesn’t mean his mom will. Read more…
