What can’t crocodiles do?

It seems that I’ve posted my share of articles on crocodiles the last few months but apparently there’s more to their story. I just saw over at the Environmental News Network the article entitled “Time to Start Looking Up: Crocodiles Can Climb Trees” by S.E. Smith via Care2. Wow!

Who let the dogs out?

Okay, so the other day I posted a video produced by the Missouri Department of Conservation on birds in winter here in Missouri. Today I have another video but this oneĀ  is about the stray dogsĀ  in Sochi, Russia and what our own David Backes, of the St. Louis Blues and others are doing to give these animals a voice.

David and his wife Kelly started a group called Athletes for Animals about seven years ago and as one might guess, if there are animals in need, they will be there. The video and story that goes along with it is entitled “Blues Player David Backes Helping Sochi Stray Dogs“.

The really neat part, is that his wife and he are working with other players and their wives but not just from team USA. How cool is that?! That my friends, is the Olympic Spirit.
