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.
Normally HDR technique is used to approach reality in photos, however with HDR photos it is also usually the contrary, they give the impression that colors are artificial and don’t look natural at all. But these HDR photos of animals are some of the best ones I’ve seen. They do serve their primary goal and create the feeling of looking at the real-life objects and landscapes.
These are the photographs that reveal how baby elephants learn tricks for circus performances. Go inside this post to learn more.
Harvest mice are typically found in fields of cereal crops in Europe and Asia. These amazing shots were done by a photographer couple Marie-Luce Hubert and Jean-Louis Klein over a one year period and they are managed to capture some of the most interesting and cute moments with these harvest mice.
This cat was born without any eyes but in spite it is doing just fine. It lives with its mother and seems to be having a fine time. They say that people who are short one sense are more acute in their others. It must be true for cats too.
People believe that dogs are smart. But this one was stupid enough to get into a difficult situation.
I wonder why a hydroelectric dam would attract these goats. It looks so surreal, and it definitely has less food than the plain grass!
Some people have cats and dogs but as these photos show, these people have some very exotic house pets. There are alligators and hairless rats and some that I have never seen before. Oh yes, there are also lots of strange fish.
It kinda looks familiar.. Remember the Lion King cartoon, Timon and Simba? This lion cub called Zinzi was rejected by her mother and when she was brought to the Predator World Zoo and Game Farm (South Africa) she was noticed by Bob the meerkat. It took them little time to become friends. Since then they are inseparable and are doing everything together. But their favourite time is a nap, of course.
Take a look at this monster’s round jaw. It looks horrifying. But this creature is fantastic, as it can survive in extreme environments that would kill people and most animals and even survive the vacuum of space. It can stand temperatures of as low as -273 degrees C (-460 degrees F) and as high as 151 degrees C (303 degrees F). It can stay alive after boiling in hot water, and getting 1,000 times more radiation than humans. It can spend almost a decade without water and food. Probably, these monsters would have seized our Planet by now if not two circumstances. On the one hand, they are extremely small (the biggest adults are able to reach a body length of 1.5 mm). On the other hand, they are slow walkers. They are even called Tardigrada because of this.
Of course, these are not photos of the popular Teddy Bear toy. These are real wild and tamed bears that look funny and cute. Many of these pictures will make you smile.
This woman is probably the most extreme animal fan in the world to get such an unusual and unpredictable pet. Even her child couldn’t stop her from getting this creature…
Shirva locals had an unusual adventure this month. Everything started with the Sapaliga family searching for their pet dog. They found it in the open well. The dog was chased by a hungry leopard who went hunting near Shirva. Both animals accidentally fell into the well, but were rescued by locals and forest personnel who used cages to catch exhausted “adventurers”. The dog has been returned to its master. As for the leopard, it was transported to the National Reserve Forest at Kudremukh.
One family that lives in Colorado Springs found their water barrel empty every morning.
They tried to discover what was happening at night. So, they installed a camera.
You’ll see the result in pictures after the jump.
Love is an amazing feeling. And humans are not the only ones who can experience it. Take a look at this kitten and sweet love of its life.

Photographer Justin Minns has saved a squirrel when it fell down the tree and broke its leg. He took care of the animal, and now the squirrel lives in his house together with his cat. The saved pet freely walks around the house and steals snacks.
