In this life, Miranda Kerr is Esquire magazine’s “Sexiest Woman Alive.” But in a past life, Miranda is convinced she was a koala. Why is she so sure she was a little furry marsupial, munching eucalyptus leaves?

Miranda Kerr is just one of many, many, many celebrities who are convinced this life is not their first spin around the globe. And some of their reasoning is … out there … to put it kindly.
Hey, a baby is still a baby — even if that baby happens to weigh a couple hundred pounds. This is Pakak, one of two orphaned baby walruses who are being cared for by the staff at the Alaska SeaLife Center in Seward, Alaska. Palak, and his brother Mitik were orphaned after becoming separated from their herd, and are apparently really, really into cuddling.

Then they started barking,” she wrote. “They sounded like a couple of smokers hacking into a megaphone.” Smokers hacking into a megaphone! Adorable!
Sadly, the two will be separated — off to the Indianapolis Zoo and the New York Aquarium, respectively. But for now, they can cuddle with the staff — and each other. Check out one more amazing pic after the jump. Keep reading »

Have you ever seen an echidna puggle? Until earlier today, we didn’t even know something called an echidna puggle even existed. But then one of these little guys was orphaned and found on a dirt track near Australia’s Central Coast. Look at this cutie! Look at his little belly!
