Hear that sound? It's the sound of summer calling!
It's hot and muggy...so what better place to go than the beach! Just wishful thinking? Let your phone bring your favorite wild summer sounds and images with you no matter where you are. There is no better reminder of the beach than our raucous Laughing Gull ringtone. Feel the ocean breeze with the familiar whistle of the American Oystercatcher ringtone and its graphic matching wallpaper.
If the crystal blue waters of a lake are your idea of a summer retreat, let your cell phone remind you of those too short weekends away with a Loon yodel ringtone and Loon message alert. Maybe ducks are more your style? We have a new customer favorite Mallard quacking message alert and a Northern pintail ringtone and wallpaper.
If summer means the sounds of the Red-Winged blackbird and Sandhill Cranes congregating in the marshes, you are in luck - your phone can bugle and call with the best of them.
And, let's not forget the wonderful ribbits, peeps and choruses of frogs this time of year! From the deep hearty Bullfrogs croaking ringtone to the great American Toad trill you can hear the sounds of the summer amphibian population. If one isn't enough, go wild and get an entire chorus of Green Treefrogs for your ringtone.
Go Wild! on your cellphone with unusual and fun animal and bird ringtones and wallpapers. And, remember that we send a portion of every purchase to deserving animal-related charities.
What Our Customers Tell Us  
Who put that dog in my purse?
We get some of the most interesting comments about our ringtones from our customers. Here is one from a customer who recommended our site to a friend:
Papillon I sent her to your website. She bought her ringtone. Why am I telling you this? Two reasons. First of all, it's hilarious when either my Papillon barks or her cat Meows when we're in a store and no one can fnd the pet. And, secondly, the ringtone sounds precisely like her newest cat and we can't tell if her phone is ringing or the cat is complaining about something. My cat's reaction to my dog ringtone [is that] she looks at my shoulderbag and thinks I bought her a puppy of her very own. I am quite enamoured of the fact that my cell phone can cause such interesting reactions.

Beaver beaverCastor canadensis
Nature's own Army Corps of Engineers is one way to describe this semi-aquatic rodent. We mostly know about beavers because of the dams they build. So...why do they go to all this trouble? The answer is simple - for protection from predators like coyotes who cannot swim out to get them, and for a place to live and store food for the winter. The sturdy lodges they build have two rooms - one to dry off in after swimming across the pond and through the submerged doorway; and another to live in. And, the ponds that result from their dams create a protective area of water to keep them safe.
Beavers can quickly transform a landscape by flooding it. While some people are not very happy about this, there are a number of ways that beavers are beneficial to the environment. Not only can they restore wetlands which helps many birds and animals, but the organic material in the dams is able to clean water of pesticides from agricultural runoff. Plus the dams help collect rich silt which helps farmers can use for their crops.
A very cool message alert is our Beaver tail splash. If you are in the river when a beaver sees you, he will slap his tail on the water like this and then quickly dive under the water to safety.
