No wonder people who live in Las Vegas are called “Las Vegans.” It’s a vegan-friendly city with a number of vegetarian and vegan restaurants and a raw food Meetup group that boasts more than 3,500 members. And while there are tons of casinos, Elvis impersonators, acrobats, magicians, daredevils, nightclubs, and wedding chapels, as you’d expect, […]

As the summer beach season heats up, walk into almost any large seaside souvenir shop, and you’re likely to see them: live hermit crabs in brightly painted shells being sold to tourists who have no idea how to care for them.

Eagle in Disguise

I was only 7, and even though I had everything that my heart desired, I always felt that something was missing in my life, until the day when I realized what it was: a companion animal to share my life with. I begged my parents for one many, many times, but they didn’t believe in […]
