These are photos of spiders, insects and other creepy crawlies that were taken under an electron microscope. They were taken by Tom Jackson over a three month period. These micro monsters live in our homes, clothes, and even our bodies.

These rats sniff out landmines that are filled with TNT. They are trained by a Dutch nongovernmental organization in Tanzania. Whenever they make positive detection they are rewarded with some food.
For more information about these little sniffers you can check out our recent article we published just several days ago in our daily stare column 'Rats to Nuts.’ Now we have more photos.
This 10-day-old dolphin was injured by a fishing net and discovered near the Montevideo beach (Uruguay). There was no sign of the dolphin’s mother, so the mammal was lowered into a swimming pool at the NGO Rescate Fauna Marina centre. Local “resident”, the Magellan penguin, quickly became friends with a baby dolphin.
For the last six months this Russian fellow left his Staffordshire terrier in his car that he bought especially for the dog to keep him away from illegal dog fights. The man was divorced and didn’t have any place to keep the pooch. He feeds and walks the dog twice a day but no one knows how well the dog will do during one of Russia’s winters. Plus, it seems that the dog becomes more aggressive being locked up there all alone.
As you have noticed, this tiger is different from those we used to see. This one is called a golden tabby tiger. It is a tiger with an extremely rare color variation, which is caused by a recessive gene and is normally found only in captive tigers. But it is not a separate species of tigers, it’s just a color form.
Golden tigers also tend to be larger and, due to the effect of the gene on the hair shaft, have softer fur than their orange relatives. There are currently believed to be fewer than 30 of these rare tigers in the world, but many more carry the gene.
