The Top 5 Animal Adoptions

Once upon a time, in a galaxy far, far away, if you wanted to adopt an animal through a charity it would generally be a panda. Those days are well and truly over now though, with a wide range of animals available to adopt of all shapes and sizes. I'm going to steer away from the usual things you can adopt, and choose 5 amazing animals that you wouldn't think could be adopted -

1. Honey Badger

I'm obsessed with these little beauties. The bravest creature on the planet, the honey badger will take on animals 5 times their size, and generally win. They eat poisonous snakes, swallow the venom, let in course through their system, then get up a couple of hours later and finish off the rest of the snake! They also do a massive, disgusting fart in enemies faces to distress them and a surprise attack. What an animal!

2. Malayan Tapir

These funny little animals have number of distinct differences from your average 'animal on the street'. They can use their nose as a snorkel! Yep, that's right, when they get scared they run into the river and hide under the water with their nose poking out so they can breathe. That alone makes it an animal worth adopting!

3. Guide Dog Puppy

You can't actually adopt a Guide Dog Puppy, but you will certainly want to as soon as you've clapped eyes on them! These little bundles of joy are just beginning there training to become a fully fledged human helper, so the money you donate goes toward their upkeep. Food, veterinary bills, walkers, you really do play a massive part in their progress to becoming a fully fledged Guide dog, and that's quite an amazing thing to do.

4. Longhorn Cow

Yep, you can actually adopt a cow, and why not, it's a bit different from a lion or tiger. The Longhorn is quite a special cow though as there aren't many of them in the UK anymore. Their horns can extend to a whopping seven feet wide, and though popular in the States, they are few and far between on these shores. Why not invest some mooooooney in a cow!

5. Snow Leopard

These amazing creatures are far and away the most beautiful animals on the planet in my opinion (the honey badger is not beautiful!). But with less than 4,000 left on the planet they are very close to slipping into extinction. They can cover up to 40km in an evening of nocturnal hunting, and have fur on the bottom of their paws to help deal with the cold. I love the Snow Leopard, and it would great if we all chipped in to make sure future generations can fall in love with them just like me.

So there you have it, a quick rundown of some of the most interesting and unique animals you can adopt online. It's not all lions and tigers out their folks, so get on the honey badger bandwagon before the rest of the world realises how brilliant they are and start adopting them all!
