Family Of Bears

Take A Dip In A Pool

8/21/2015 10:05 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

It’s been scorching this summer and it must be twice as hot if you’re covered in fur … probably why this family of bears decided to cool down in the Baso family pool.

Mama bear got to chill as she soaked in the water while her little cubs played around with pool toys.

Every family needs a little vacation … even a family of bears.

Open Water Hilarity

Perfect Comedic Timing

For Blue Whale

8/20/2015 11:04 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

This gigantic blue whale just proved scientists don't know everything ... with some deep sea humor that left a zoologist speechless.

Mark Carwardine was trying to play up for the camera how hard his job is trying to spot the giant sea mammals out in their natural environment ... when he got a big blue photobomb.

Whoever said animals don't have a sense of humor hasn't seen this video.

Snaked in Hollywood

8/20/2015 6:46 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Mally Mall and Malaysia wore fancy boas Wednesday after celebrating her birthday, and it looks like they've hooked up.

The famed hip-hop producer and "Basketball Wives" star had dinner at the House of Macau, where it appears he placed a necklace around ... her neck.

Cut to their exit, where dudes on Hollywood Blvd. walk around with boa constrictors ... which accentuated the neckwear of both. 

And then they slithered away ... and so did the snakes.

Furry Koala ...

Chases Lady On ATV

8/17/2015 3:43 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Normally when you think of a koala bear a furry little ball of joy pops in your head ... but not for this screaming lady on an ATV being chased down by the rabid cute creature.

Koalas do have claws and teeth for a reason ... and it's not just to eat eucalyptus leaves, but to also latch onto the vehicles of people treading on the marsupial's turf.

Back Flipper

Dolphin Puts On A Show For Divers

8/17/2015 12:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Thank God for waterproof cameras 'cause this dynamic dolphin showed off some serious aquatic acrobatics for some lucky divers.

It was less of a routine snorkeling tour and more of a Cirque Du Soleil show ... but out in the middle of the ocean.

Check out the awesome video.

Cute Alert

Baby Miniature Horse Chases Guy

8/17/2015 11:57 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Mini horses are painfully adorable ... 3-day-old mini horses will make you lose your mind.

This tiny dude tested out his hooves against a guy wearing sandals in the horse pen ... galloping around and having a great time until mommy got jealous.

So small ... so cute ... so what you need to watch to get over a case of the Mondays. 


I’ve Got Bees … 200,000 of Them!!!

8/16/2015 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0814-michael-balzary-instagramThere's a buzz around Flea ... a roaring, deafening buzz. 

The Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist put 3 beehives in his backyard last month ... each holding more than 60,000 bees.  

The question, of course, why? Two reasons ... he really digs bees. But his passion for environmentalism has given him hives, because the honeybee population is dying off.

We’re told he’s only been doing it for a few months and has already mastered the craft, but it’s more of a hobby than anything else since RHCP aren't touring right now.  

The reason that's important ... no bees means no bee pollination = a lot less food.

Hope he doesn't get Flea bitten.


Dog Is A Scaredy-Cat

Until Other Dog Helps Out

8/14/2015 9:48 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

This golden retriever lived up to her namesake when she retrieved her doggie pal at the park. 

The two golden retrievers -- Lilly and Layla -- were playing around with their master, Emily, on a jungle gym at a park in Naperville, Illinois.

When Lilly and Emily went down the slide, Layla was too afraid to take that leap of faith … that’s when Lilly lent a helping paw.  

Cecil the Lion Killer: Walter Palmer

Illegally Killed Black Bear

Pled to Felony

8/14/2015 6:11 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0814-walter-palmer-wdnrDr. Walter Palmer is no stranger to posing with illegally killed animals ... new photos have surfaced of a black bear he illegally shot and killed ... years before he took the life of Cecil the Lion

Palmer shot the bear in an area where the animal was protected ... 40 miles from where he was allowed to hunt. According to ABC, which obtained the photos, Palmer was not only aware of his misdeed, he offered 3 guides who were present $20,000 to lie and say he shot the bear in the permissible area.  

The guides wouldn't play ball, and Palmer pled guilty to the charge of making false statements to an official ... a felony. He was placed on 1 year probation.

Palmer has not been seen since news of Cecil's death became public.

Sophia the St Bernard was diagnosed with terminal bone cancer ... so her owner Alyson wanted to give her something special before she had to be put down.

The Chill Factore in Manchester -- UK's longest indoor ski slope -- was happy to give them the opportunity to play around in their snow filled park.

Grab your tissues cause you're going to need them after watching Sophia get one last roll around.

Nipple Alert

Fish Chomps Down

On Guy's Nip

8/12/2015 11:19 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Normally when we do stories about nipples, they're slipping out of a dress ... but this one, is a little more extreme.

Wyatt Green is probably wishing he wore a two-piece while he was filming this feisty fish in Lake Powell, Utah.

Think we just saw the birth of the first nipple clamp/fishing lure crossover.

Uggie the Dog

'The Artist' Star Put to Sleep

After Prostate Illness

8/11/2015 9:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0811_uggie_the_artist_getty_2Uggie, the famous Jack Russell Terrier from "The Artist" ... has gone to the big doghouse in the sky -- after bravely battling a prostate tumor.

TMZ has learned the 13-year-old star who played "The Dog" in the 2012 Oscar winning film was put down Friday in Los Angeles. His owner, Omar Von Mueller, tells us it was a difficult decision, but Uggie had been suffering with the tumor, and the last few weeks were especially difficult.

Sarah Clifford worked with Uggie on his big star turn, and tells us he was "a perfect little terrier" with boundless energy.

His "Artist" work earned him several accolades, including a Golden Collar Award ... and the Palm Dog Award at Cannes. He also famously nipped at Harvey Levin during a visit to TMZ Live.

Uggie was able to cash in on all that success too -- becoming Nintendo's first ever spokesdog.

Clifford added ... "I will forever hold him dearly in my heart and never forget his infinite love for chicken and hotdogs."

R.I.P. little guy.
