Edelweiss Pirates emerged from the swing kids and resisted the Nazi regime in Germany, often clashing with Hitler Youth and Gestapo. Their style took cues from the American swing movement, but was married to German folklore. Lederhosen was a central part of their look and they hated seeing their heritage maligned by the regime. Romanticized living off grid. Rebelled as only youth can. by patrice

These alarmingly large Coconut Crabs are related to hermit crabs, but get much larger -  up to 3 ft across.   Their claws are capable of lifting up to 64 lbs.  The eggs hatch and the larvae live in the sea for the first few years.  Then they crawl out and become terrestrial crabs.  They have been known to steal shiny objects from people. by randi

Materials in a Reggio-inspired Home: Blocks I really think blocks are the epitome of open-ended materials. They allow a child to express their own creativity while making designs, constructions and sculptures. Blocks require a child to think creatively, problem solve, negotiate and invent.

Torque, a 6-month-old greyhound, befriended a baby owl at an animal center when she was taken from her mother for her own protection after just three days. Keepers say the dog seems to have adopted Shrek the owl as his own daughter and is extremely protective of her. Torque keeps his eye on Shrek as the two roam the home of falconer John Picton, and they often spend their evenings curled up on the couch watching TV.Check out 15 more unlikely — by sophia

Yogi, a 5-year-old Corgi, was fascinated by the ducklings his owner Frances Marsh brought home from a garden center in Atlantic Beach, NC. “They were in a little box, and he just leaned his head over and licked them!” But it seems the ducklings were more fascinated with Yogi—who took the place of their mom—and they started to follow him everywhere. by leanne

A baby pig abandoned by her mother in 2009 had found a new home after being adopted... by a Rottweiler. The little piglet faced starving when she was rejected as the runt of a litter of 13. Sasha (Rottweiler mum) had given birth to puppies of the same age so her maternal instincts kicked in when she saw baby piglet.   Such a wonderful family - I have no recent update but little piglet was to stay as part of the family. ♥   Photo - Wales News by jeanine
