Off topic: Animals not in their usual habitats, feeding a zoo, band names’ origins, bikini baristas

Tree goats, hanging snakes, swimming pigs and other animals in unexpected places. Speaking of animals, how zoos feed them when disaster strikes.

And bikini baristas sue the city of Everett, Washington, which they say is violating women’s rights by establishing a bare-skin ban.
