Children ’round the world eagerly awaited gifts from Santa this week…

But how about goodies from an ELEPHANT dressed as Santa?

That was just as well for school children in Ayutthaya, Thailand, thrilled by this Christmas Eve surprise — like 11-year-old Siri Sukphan.

“Elephants are so fat, so cute,” he says.

In Russia’s Far East, orphaned Himalayan black bear cubs got ready for winter…

…with the help of volunteers from the wildlife rehabilitation center, Utyos — who prepared them this special hibernation lair.

Do your dogs like luxury?

Then you might want to bring them here…the new five star Atfrits canine hotel in Cape Town, South Africa.

Perhaps they’d like a “pawdicure” or to relax in the “Dogald Trump” private room.

Yanic Klue is the owner.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) YANIC KLUE, OWNER, ATFRITS DOG HOTEL SAYING:

“It’s absolutely insane the amount of people who are flying their dogs down to Cape Town.”

Between gourmet meals and retail therapy…it’s a lifestyle these pups could get used to.
