Dogs/Cats React To First Snowstorm – so-o-o cute!

Perfect timing for ViralNova’s December 9,2014 post, as we just received our first major snowstorm of the season here in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.

These 15 Animals Playing In Snow For The First Time Will Melt Your Heart, initially posted to boredpanda 10 days ago by Viktorija G. The comments for each photo are from ViralNova.

Newborn animals come with a number of first experiences. The first time you bring them home. The first time you catch them chewing on your shoes. Even the first time your heart melts after they snuggle beside you. But for all these firsts, there’s one that stands above all the others: the first time they play in snow.

This Polar Bear pup just got a dose of home.

 
 

That’s one chilly kitty.

 
 
 

Wait…I can’t even see you!

 

“It’s COLD…COLD…COLD!”

 
 

“Mom, it’s stuck in my ear…”

“Don’t tell mom…”

I bet you’re re-thinking that long coat.

He may be 8 years old, but he plays like a pup.

 

Yummmm, that’s the good stuff.

 

“What IS this?!”

 

“I don’t wanna come in! I’m still PLAYIN!”

 

“I swear I left a toy under here.”

 

His first snowfall feels just right.

 

Yup…cats hate snow, too.

 

“Grrrrrrr…….I’m not liking this whole ‘snow’ thing.”

These adorable animals are a reminder to keep your eyes open and experience the world with a child-like enthusiasm when that big Nor’easter arrives. After all, you can always have just as much fun as these adorable creatures!

Lucky for us, some lovely people had their cameras on hand when these 15 adorable animals had their first snow encounters. The results are beautiful scenes of wintry magic!

JELLYFISH LAKE ~ PAPUA ~ DELIGHTFUL PARADISE!

JELLYFISH LAKE, PALAU
An enchanting and mesmerizing paradise exists in Palau – judged to be the #1 underwater wonder of the world.

CORAL FISHPalau’s waters host as many as 600 types of coral and 1500 species of  fish.

The following excerpt is from MNN – ‘Where the jellies roam’ (link at end of blog).

Nestled within a lush forest on the Micronesian island of Eil Malk is one of the world’s most remarkable snorkeling destinations: Jellyfish Lake. The freshwater diving spot, located in Palau’s Rock Islands, is named quite literally for the millions of jellyfish that spend their days bobbing back and forth across the lake’s length.
JELLYFISH STINGSWhile many cnidarians are known for their lethal stings, the two species that live in this lake — MOON JELLYFISHthe moon jellyfish and the golden jellyfish — are harmless, making them perfect swimming companions. Protective stingers were rendered pointless after the gelatinous, glass-like creatures evolved in a closed environment lacking in predators …

‘Diving in Jellyfish Lake’, published on Apr 18, 2013,  Welcome to Jellyfish Lake!  Population: millions!  It’s about as unique as a dive location can get … and our crew can safely swim amongst its cnidarian residents since their stings are harmless to humans.  Time for a little dive in jellyfish soup!
