Yup. Now we've seen it all.

Following the trends of Nicki Minaj, Miley Cyrus and many others, an unnamed turtle is making the viral rounds today because he's making the most of his bath time.

BY TWERKING! 

The creature is moving and grooving in footage set, appropriately, to Jason Derulo's "Wiggle." 

We doubt this animal can make $100,000 per year by Twerking, but, hey, not everyone is in this for the money. Some just do it for the love of dance.

Good news, dogs of the world:

You aren't the only animals to get freaked out by the unexpected presence of a squirrel.

In the following video, filmed at the Toronto Zoo, a panda named Er Shun is peacefully taking a name on a log pile in her enclosure (dreaming of some delicious bamboo, we presume) when she gets jolted awake by a quick-darting squirrel.

It makes its move and then immediately runs back away, confusing Er Shun for a few moments before the panda settles back in for more sleep. Watch now:

Squirrels, of course, can be as funny as they are scary.

Remember this footage of a squirrel being thwarted by Vasoline? Or this footage of a devastated squirrel dropping a nut way down to the ground?

Ever wondered what it would be like to see two kangaroos brawl in the street, while simultaneously listening to a classical piece of music?

Well, thanks to Rodney Langham, you need not wonder any longer!

This Australian resident has posted a video that features a pair of animals who are apparently hopping mad (get i?!?) at each other.

He's set the footage to Tchaikovsky's "Waltz of the Flowers" from The Nutcracker and he's watched as it's racked up over 2.2 million views on YouTube because... who would NOT want to watch two kangaroos going at it on an otherwise quiet street?

In other semi-related news, remember this kangaroo who got lost inside an airport?

Back in July, we shared the story of a miniature horse and a dog who are surprise best friends.

Now, it's time to meet Acer, a miniature horse who believes himself to be a dog!

According to his owner Maureen O’Sullivan, Acer suffers from a condition called Dwarfism. As a result, he’s only 22 inches tall.

But the three-year-old isn’t letting this abnormality slow him down. He's determined to live life to the fullest... as a canine!

Acer goes for walks on a leash. He plays around in the field. He's also permitted to occasionally wander into the family home. 

Taking Horse for a Walk

Oh, and did we mention that he’s also the ideal size for cuddling?

What's an even better way to prepare for the changing of the seasons than pumpkin spice latte?

How about video of two little girls playing around in a leaf pile? Not good enough? Consider this:

Two little girls playing around in a leaf pile... with a baby deer!

That's exactly what the following footage depicts and it's just as adorable as you might imagine. Let's just hope the kids' parents checked them for ticks afterward and let's just sit back and get ready for the fall with the help of this unexpected play date:

The only thing missing from this cute video?

Butch, the Siberian Husky who loves to play with leaves more than we love anything in the entire world. Perhaps the girls and the fawn can invite him along next time.

Consider yourselves warned, THG readers:

The following photo gallery and subsequent video may cause an end to all productivity for you today.

That’s because they feature two female cheetahs who were born on September 1 at the San Diego Zoo, with that famous establishment announcing the news on Facebook and noting that each birth is "precious" because there are only 12,000 cheetahs left in the world.

These three-week olds are being hand-raised by the animal care staff because their mother couldn't raise her previous litter properly. They only weigh three pounds each at the moment.

But that isn't stopping the sisters from playing with each other and making us squeal in delight.

Cheetahs at Play
These two cheetahs were just born at the San Diego Zoo. We could watch this GIF all day long, couldn't you?

"Every baby's different, but these cheetahs really seem to be developing quickly in our eyes," says Eileen Neff, lead keeper of the San Diego Zoo Safari Park. "They are great eaters, they started playing when they were just three or four days old. They could barely walk at that time, so it was pretty interesting seeing them tumbling around with each other."

Say hello to Joplin.

This donkey was sick as a baby and, therefore, was raised indoors by Missouri natives Dawn and Chris Wegener.

Joplin grew very accustomed to the arrangement and has lived as a regular member of the family ever since, watching television at times, helping with chores and other times and, based on the adorable photos below, often irritating the dog as well.

Joplin can open doors all by himself; enjoys eating apples as a snack in the kitchen; and has learned enough by now to ignore Dr. Phil.

Don't believe us? Check out these pictures for proof!

Admiring Other Animals
What's the big deal? Nothing to see here! It's just a donkey living inside and watching some television.

Pretty amazing, huh?

Okay, maybe this is the coolest wedding photo of all-time.

We previously gave that honor to this wave-crashing image. And we also considered it for this amazing look at a bride and groom posing in front of a tornado.

But now a photo of Erick and Lauren Fix on their big day has been posted to Reddit, and it features the newlyweds standing in front of a herd of adorable, slightly frightened deer.

Deer Photobomb Wedding Picture

Fix tells ABC that the nuptials took place on the farm of a family friend, a locale that often has a herd of wild deer roaming all about.

Forgive (or embrace) the obvious pun, but... HOO says a cat and an owl can't be close friends?

Not Forbi, the feline in the following video, who is doing all she can to get the attention of an owl named Cleo.

The unlikely pals, whose footage has been shared more than 100,000 times on Facebook, are owned by Brazilian biologist Andre Costa.

They met at a young age and have been inseparable ever since, even if you wouldn't totally know it based on Cleo's reaction below. Come on, Cleo, give Forbi some love!

As unexpected as this friendship may seem, there are other examples of even more unexpected animal bondings.

Like this lion, this tiger and this bear. Or this cheetah and this dog. How adorable, right?!?

Who says bears are so different from humans?

These animals may seem scary, but they get excited when they reach the green in golf, same as anyone else. They also like to Twerk.

And as a heat wave hits Southern California, with temperatures soaring into the triple digits, they look to cool off in the same way as their two-legged frenemies:

By taking a quick dip in the pool!

Watch this black bear chill out on the property of a home in Sierra Madre Sunday afternoon. Someone get that guy a drink with an umbrella in it!

Pool owners in the area should take note: It's not expected to get any cooler in The Golden State over the next few days.
