The Late Movies: Animals on Treadmills

Mario Marsicano

Well, we're approaching the end of July. Summer's in full swing, and it's starting to get really hot and sticky outside. I don't know about you, but this weather makes it really tough to get up and go to the gym, so I'm always looking for any sort of motivation I can get. With that in mind, I offer up these videos of animals on treadmills, because if they can do it, why can't I?

A cat gets his first treadmill experience.

But this dog is obviously an experienced pro.

And now a cat and dog, together.

A friend had a ferret in college...never did this, though.

This is a good example of how I feel some mornings.

Doesn't a horse going at full gallop seem like an accident waiting to happen?

Here's that shrimp we've all seen before.

A drunk Mythbuster is a nice addition to the collection.

And finally, an idiot attempts a handstand.
