Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Historical Park in Vermont has been sharing some adorable trail cam videos of baby foxes venturing out of their den. Park officials suggest the kits are about a month and a half old.

A bizarre deep-sea fish—a visitor from thousands of feet below the surface of the ocean—washed ashore near Cannon Beach, Oregon, shocking beach combers. It’s the first time one of these animals has washed up in the state, according to the Seaside Aquarium in Seaside, Oregon.

To all those in the Midwest and Southeast, how are you doing? We’re talking about the cicadas, of course. Cicada-geddon is underway in states like Illinois, Tennessee, Kentucky, Missouri, Wisconsin, North Carolina, and South Carolina. This summer, two massive broods of periodical cicadas are emerging around the same time and in roughly the same geographic area, and it’s the first time this has happened in 200 years.

The U.S. Coast Guard rescued three men who were stranded on a tiny Pacific island for more than a week. The men leveraged a survival trick worthy of the movie screen—they spelled H-E-L-P out on the beach using palm leaves. The Coast Guard says the mariners’ message was a “crucial factor in their discovery.”

A black bear raided a Southern California family’s garage fridge and knew exactly what it wanted as soon as it saw it. Who knew bears love to eat watermelon?

It grabbed a sweet, refreshing snack, and carried it away. The bear paused to eat the watermelon before heading back into the nearby wilderness.
