Man's Emotional Support Alligator Loves To Give Hugs
"When I'm down it's almost like he can sense it ... He has climbed into my bed with me."

WILDLIFE PROFILE
COMMENTS
When Wally was just a tiny baby alligator, nobody wanted him.

In fact, people were afraid of him and the other alligators like him. Wally was part of a population of alligators living around Orlando, Florida, a city that attracts so many child tourists. People were worried that animals like Wally would become too dangerous to coexist with people. "If I wouldn't have taken him he would have been killed," Joie Henney told The Dodo.

Wally was just over a year old when a friend of Henney's rescued the little guy, and then Henney offered Wally a home in York Haven, Pennsylvania.

So Wally's life was saved. And, as it would turn out, Wally would also rescue his rescuer. Henney was struggling with depression and his doctor suggested he start taking pills. But Henney noticed that he felt so much better when he was spending time with Wally.

"When I came home and was around him, it was all OK," Henney told The Inquirer. "My doctor knew about Wally and figured it works, so why not?" That's how Wally helped to rescue Henney — and the nearly 4-year-old alligator officially became registered as an emotional support animal.

Wally is now about 5 feet long, but still cuddles up with Henney on the couch. "He likes to give hugs," Henney said.

Henney is sensitive to the fact that most people don't realize how personable and loving Wally can be, so Henney doesn't take his emotional support animal everywhere — just to the places he knows Wally will be welcome.

"Before I even had him registered as an emotional support animal I did take him around with me to stores, walks in the park and had meet-and-greets with him," Henney said. Wally recently cheered up the residents at a local nursing home, hugs abounding.

"He helps me keep my spirits up," Henney said. "When I'm down it's almost like he can sense it ... He will come over to me on his own. He also has climbed into my bed with me when I'm not feeling well."

Wally could grow to be 14 feet long — but he'll have a home forever with Henney, who is building a special facility for him starting this summer, so he'll have room to grow. Wally already has a pond, which he shares with another rescued gator, a 2-year-old named Scrappy. There's also Luna, who at 8 months old is the youngest rescue.

"Scrappy is still kinda small and Luna still likes to run [around]," Henney said. "It's Wally [who] gives the hugs."

Those crazy penguins causing environmental problems.


Antarctic penguins release an extreme amount of laughing gas in their feces, it turns out
By Leah Asmelash, CNN

(CNN)Laughing gas isn't just something they give you at the dentist. It also comes out of penguin poop.

How do we know this, you're surely wondering? Well, a new study says just that.
Published in the journal "Science of the Total Environment," the study examined the effects of a King Penguin colony's activity on soil greenhouse gas fluxes in South Georgia -- a sub-Antarctic island just north of Antarctica. One finding in particular was notably unique -- penguin poop, also known as "guano," produces extremely high levels of nitrous oxide. It's the chemical known to most as laughing gas.

"It is truly intense," said Bo Elberling, an author of the study. He noted it's not an insignificant amount, either -- the emissions measure about 100 times more than a recently fertilized Danish field. There was enough emitted nitrous, in fact, that one researcher went "completely cuckoo," while "nosing about in guano for several hours," Elberling said.

"The small nitrous oxide cylinders that you see lying in and floating around Copenhagen are no match for this heavy dose, which results from a combination of nitrous oxide with hydrogen sulphide and other gases," he added, referring to the containers designed for whipped cream but often used as a recreational drug.

How the nitrous oxide is produced...When these penguins poop, fueled by a diet of fish, squid and krill, nitrogen is released from their feces into the ground. The bacteria in the soil then converts the nitrogen into nitrous oxide -- a greenhouse gas commonly known as laughing gas. "It is clear to us that the level of nitrous oxide is very high in places where there are penguins -- and thereby guano -- and vice versa, lower in places where there is none," Elberling said in a statement.

There are some climate concerns, too.
On their own, these droppings and their emissions aren't enough to impact Earth's overall energy budget, Elberling said. But the research does show how penguins influence their environments, which is especially significant as the colonies grow.
"A future expansion of penguins into newly available ice-free polar coastal areas may therefore markedly increase the local (greenhouse gas) budget," the study says. Further research may also develop a deeper understanding of how the droppings affect the Earth and its atmosphere, which could help the fight against greenhouse gases, Elberling said.
