Here’s a little selection of animals who know how to hold a brush and do some abstract art.
Most of them are trained, of course, but some of them felt an artist inside them, took the brush and started to create their own artworks.
Like this dog Sammy who lives with his owner in Maryland. His owner said that Sammy started to paint after his owner attached a brush to his rubber bone. Recently some of his works were sold for $1,700. Not bad for a dog, huh? ;)
One man came home from work and found this mess. It was left by his dog that didn’t like to stay alone at home. Mess itself wasn’t a shock, but the dog itself looked really unusual :)
These great photos were sent to us by Davina Franks. We thank Davina so much! We will quote her message and post pictures of a backpacking kitty after the jump.
I have always wondered how two headed animals figure out which head is the boss? These two headed snakes can be rarely met in nature, but they are displayed in zoos and private collections. It doesn’t matter which head eats, because two headed snakes share one body. But it’s funny to see both heads being fed and it’s interesting to watch such a snake moving. Both heads can’t decide which direction is the best for the body :)

Here’s a selection of baby animals that can’t be said to be the most beautiful like other baby animals can be. But despite being ugly they are very cute at the same time :)
Pera is the name of a rooster who was born all alone and never had any company. However, one day he found a small white chicken to walk with. They soon become inseparable. Together they walked through the beautiful gardens. It would appear that they are truly lovebirds, as they gaze longingly at each other.
Baby animals always look so sweet and cute! Inside this post, you can enjoy pictures of little ones and their mothers.
38 year old photographer Hannes Lochner, from Cape Town South Africa, has been observing wildlife in the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park for the last 2 ½ years. His remarkable photographs have now been published in a new book titled "Colours of the Kalahari." As with most wildlife photographers, Hannes often had to go the extra mile to get the best photo. Having temperatures as high as 40 C during the day and below freezing at night, Hannes had to brave extreme conditions to get the right shot.

This 20-foot python was caught from Lake Evans in Riverside County.
If I was swimming in the lake and saw this thing swimming near me, I would definitely shit bricks.
Animals also enjoy surfing websites. They look very cute when they sit in front of computers :)
Orangutan Boxing Show was a big attraction at Safari World outside of Bangkok. It was forbidden in 2006. According to Borneo Orangutan Survival Foundation, orangutans were illegally smuggled from the Malaysian woods. They stayed in dark cages and were trained for the show. Some people say animals were abused. It’s important to understand that orangutans are endangered. Wild species can be found only in Malaysia and Indonesia rainforests.

Australian local authorities have announced Toad Day Out. On this day all citizens of Queensland can catch cane toads and bring these poisonous amphibians that are rather toxic to a special destination. All live frogs are painlessly killed and turned into compost, which is used by the cane farmers.
While some people have a tough time with the catching huge toads, others try to protect these frogs from a roundup.
Amazing creatures live in the ocean. This is an amazing photo collection of unbelievable plants and marine animals of different sizes, shapes and colors.

These shocking photos were taken by tourists during their New Zealand nature cruise. A killer whale (orca) attacked an exhausted dolphin. Experts assure that a sighting of orcas hunting dolphins was “almost unheard of”.
This post is kind of emotional. I was surprised to see this, and I hope you won't get too upset.
