We already know that Honey Badgers are awesome, but did you know that in addition to being skilled diggers, fearless hunters and not caring about anything, they’re also incredibly intelligent and cunning? Well now you do. Meet Stoffel the Honey Badger Houdini.
Stoffel lives at the Moholoholo wildlife rehabilitation center near Kruger National Park in eastern South Africa. He’s a permanent resident of the center, which rescued him from a negligent owner trying to keep him as a pet, which is why he cannot be released into the wild. But it turns out that keeping Stoffel isn’t simply a matter of giving him a nice place to live. No matter what sort of enclosed habitat the center provides, Stoffel finds ways to escape - sometimes ingenious ways - which reveal that he’s not just determined, he’s also amazingly thoughtful.

Maybe this year the Easter Bunny can take the day off and we can celebrate with the Easter Snake instead. Meet Crescent, or in this case “Bunny Crescent”, Canadian DeviantARTist NocturneJewel's leucistic Texas Rat Snake (Pantherophis obsoletus). She’s almost 9 years old, just over 4 feet long, and is probably better suited to hide Easter eggs simply by swallowing them, rather than trying to hide them for the rest of us to find. But we don’t mind.
NocturneJewel had a seamstress friend make this cute pair of bunny ears for Cresent, who apparently didn’t mind wearing them, but only had to do so long enough to take these awesome photos.
It’s Excellently Eccentric Easter Day on Geyser of Awesome!
We don’t know where Imgur user TryAnotherPiece works, but that’s not important. What really matters is that for their coworker’s last day of work they made this incredibly awesome farewell cake. Nothing says “So long and good luck!” quite like zombies, severed body parts, and lots and lots of chocolate.
It’s just like your parents always told you—you are special. But, if that’s true, where are your paparazzi and clingy fans? It’s time for you to take command of your destiny. This set of five hard vinyl You’re The Star figures is the adoring public you so richly deserve. They’ll watch you brush your teeth, wait for you to get home from work and hang around outside of any event you go to. In fact, occasionally you’ll want to yell at them, but don’t do it. You don’t want to be featured on TMZ.
Katie Bradley aka MossyTortoise (previously featured here) likes to crochet and care for animals so much that she branched out from making her already awesome tortoise cozies to create this unbelievably cute snail cozy:
"One of my clients asked me to crochet a tiny lacy stegosaurus cozy for her baby tortoise, which happens to be the same size as our baby marginated tortoise, Buttercup. I had a little bit of the yarn left over… and so, not wanting to waste it, I made a snail cozy!”
With such adorable matching cozies, we’re hoping that the snail and Buttercup are headed for snug yet fashionable adventures. Or at least a really cute nap.

If you’re familiar with Peacock Spiders, then you probably already know that the colorful males put on awesome displays to attract and woo potential mates. But did you know that some of those feisty arachnids choreograph their courtship dances to the disco hit “Y.M.C.A.” by the Village People? (Don’t worry, neither did we.)
This unbelievably amazing phenomenon was
created captured by Italian videomaker and sound designer Dario Trovato using peacock spider footage shot by Australian photographer Dr. Jurgen Otto (previously featured here).
