    Sorry, I was looking for interesting animal facts, not some PETA BS.

  2. Mike says:

    @Derek: Second. Since when TF is a list and a bunch of pictures “Interesting Facts” ?

    I petition “Commonus Sensius” to be placed on the endangered list. But only in the US.

  3. I love elephants. Anyone who buys ivory has killed an elephant!

  4. Ivory purchaser here. Feels good man.

  6. Bestoti says:

  7. Donna says:

    Endangered animal list isnt PETA numbskull. Im no animal activist, reaise and breed chickens to eat, but endangered animal list and the protection of them isnt for the interest of humans, but for conserving nature, which i am an advocate of. I was a biology major and is it all too amazing

  9. Really very interesting site. Just want to see everything here.

  10. its really cute still especially the monkey photo nice one

  11. Red says:

    It’s nice to save animals and all, but that’s not I came here. Pictures and a list of animal names are not not interesting facts. I was hoping for an explanation for the fanged cow! This shouldn’t have been linked on RIA Novosti.

  12. Kjartan says:

    Conservation of species aside…

    There is a reason for PETA, Greenpeace and other such organizations, bothering to make elaborate campaigns.

    They want to attract people to their cause.

    This list and whatever isn´t very attractive, in that the picture/link of the fanged cow + the “interesting facts” promises more than we are given here.
    What is your target audience? This might appeal to 8 year olds doing a school project, but otherwise rather detracts the cause and does it a disservice, being so boring that it pushes would-be followers away.

    I´m for grassroots movements and all, so please work together with someone with good sales experience.
    Bad publicity works for actors and pop stars… causes not so much.

    Good luck on your project.
