Here are the top ten articles for the Animal Life Site! These rankings are live and get reset at the beginning of each month, so check back often to see what your fellow visitors are most interested in!

1. Animals Help Relieve Depression
Amidst economic strife, high unemployment rates, tenuous future security, and struggles with self-esteem, it is little surprise that depression is a chronic reality for many. One of the most effective ways to help combat this condition is by taking advantage of the human-animal bond.

2. Hermaphrodite Hyenas?
Hyenas always get a bad rap - but these animals are truly fascinating creatures, with some physical and social characteristics that are truly unique. (Note: there is some information in this article that may not be appropriate for very young readers.)

3. The Protection of Dolphins
Six months out of every year an unprecedented slaughter takes place in Taiji, Japan, as migrating dolphins are driven into a cove for slaughter. This reality needs a prompt change.

4. Why are Baby Animals Cute?
Have you ever wondered why your heart melts at the sight of a baby animal, or what causes people to want to care for them? The answers might surprise you.

5. Science and Symbolism of Lovebirds
Come here to find fun scientific lovebird facts and some fun loving folklore.

6. Pet Emergency Evacuation Checklist
Here is a list of items for your pet you should bring along with you during a natural disaster. This is laid out in a checklist format for easy viewing and action.

7. Shambala Preserve
Shambala, founded by actress and animal advocate Tippi Hedren, is a sanctuary for exotic cats rescued from the pet trade.

8. Are You an Animal Hoarder? Learn the Signs
Hoarding is not beneficial to the welfare of animals and is vastly different from providing responsible care.

9. Bestiality Brothels
Is sex with animals a legitimate subculture or ideal predatory breeding grounds?

10. The African Unicorn
The tales of the "African Unicorn" date back as far as Ancient Egypt. Now referred to as Okapi, they were believed to be a mythical creature until the beginning of the 20th century. Yet, this illusive creature faces real endangerment before we even have the chance to learn anything about it.
