    Wow, tiny burritos are expensive these days.

    If there's one privilege that Americans take for granted, it's our abundance of hamsters. France is spending $4.2 million on preservation efforts to save the Great Hamster of Alsace (not pictured)—enough money to buy a lot of shredded newspapers and exercise wheels if that was a thing the wild rodents actually needed.

  6. Make Love like an Eagle Falling out of the Sky with Endangered Animal Condoms

    You know, like George Washington. That song is factual, right?

    Now you can create less humans and save more animals with endangered animal condoms. Wait, that sounds like condoms made from endangered animals, which it's not, because would be horrible, for obvious endangered species reasons, and because they wouldn't really work. No, they're condoms that remind you that we need more animals—not people.

  7. Adorable and Endangered Lion Cub Born in France

    In the French zoo, the pretty (I'm sure) French zoo, the lion sleeps tonight. Come on, everybody!

  8. Etsy Finally Changed Their Policies to Ban Products Using Endangered Species

    Because this used to be a thing that was okay? That doesn't seem right...

    While you can still purchase some fairly odd things on Etsy, the Internet's premier site for strange, handcrafted items of all ilk, there are some things you can't get even there. As of this week, shoppers will no longer be able to buy or sell the lynx-and-chinchilla fur jackets of their dreams. That's because Etsy executives have made the very responsible, right-thinking call to ban the sale of items that use or contain parts of endangered animals.

  9. Adorable Fisher Population Currently Being Threatened by Marijuana Growers

    Killing cute animals is probably the only way to convince people that growing marijuana is bad, actually.

    Enormously unjust rates of incarceration aside, one of the biggest arguments cited in favor of marijuana legalization in this country is that it's safe to use and doesn't have many long-term side effects. Tell that to the fishers that live in the southern Sierra Nevada area, though. According to scientists from U.S. Forest Service's Pacific Southwest Research Station, UC Davis, UC Berkeley, and Integral Ecology Research Center, they're dying out because of the rat poison that local marijuana growers use to protect their crops. Happy now, potheads?

  10. Endangered Whales Turned Into Ingredients for High-End Japanese Dog Treats

    Some things should just not be fed to dogs.

    Japan, we need to have a talk about your luxury dog snack market, because "endangered fin whale" is not an acceptable ingredient for dog treats. That's what one Japanese specialty pet food company has been selling, though, and they're now taking flack over the idea because for the love of all that is good, what kind of money-hungry deviant would do something like that? And Iceland, don't think you're off the hook for saying nuts to the international community and preparing to kill nearly 200 fin whales this year, many of which will be butchered and exported to become important items like "dog treats for the rich and monstrous." Not cool, you guys.
