Orangutans and Their Nuts (9 pics)

Posted in Animals 9 Mar 2010   / 2976 views

The Orangutans in these photos are doing their dead level best to get at the nuts inside a vending machine. In order to get the nuts to drop down where they can grab them, they have to pull a succession of strings in order to release them. Following a couple of attempts and thinking about the problem, the apes resorted to the classic shake the machine technique.

 

 

Look if they manage to get them.

They get so kind and loving when they are hungry. But when they start playing, be cautious! They can leave such a mess that you would spend a whole week clearing it up!

I would be scared to death if I met these hungry sharks in the ocean! Luckily most of them are deep-water creatures. Still some can be found near the shore… Be careful everyone!

A Wheelchair for A Dog (4 pics + 1 video)

Posted in Animals 3 Mar 2010   / 5384 views

Hoppa is a dog who was born without its two front legs but has been learning to get around through the use of a specially designed wheelchair. The veterinarians thought the only way to prevent him from suffering would be to put him to sleep. However, Avi Kozi, chairman of the Society for the Protection of Animals in Israel, adopted Hoppa and gave him a set of wheels that has helped him survive.

Flamingo Wannabe’s (2 pics)

The duck in these photos seem to have a strong desire to be something they are not: Flamingos. Neil S. saw the duck at a Phoenix Zoo where they apparently they got mixed in with some flamingos. It wasn’t long before they began imitating them in a most interesting way.

The pictures were sent to us by Raymond Bell to whom we say a big thank you :)
If you ever wondered why dogs bite people out of the blue, we may have an answer to this question ;)
Actually, the answer is very easy and you’ll understand it all after viewing these pictures.
To be honest, I can’t blame these dogs winked

Deadly Stonefish (20 pics)

Posted in Animals 1 Mar 2010   / 4653 views

I always though of Australia as a great destination to catch some waves and have the rest of your life… The only thing is with all these dangerous animals that inhabits the “promised vacation land”, you should be very careful where you put your foot whenever you are near the coral reefs of coastal Australia, so that this wouldn’t become a “rest in peace vacation” ;)

Dear Deer (7 pics)

Posted in Animals 1 Mar 2010   / 4664 views

If you thought that wild deer were skittish and afraid of human contact, you need to take a look at these photos. Clearly this deer, at least, is not afraid of human, or dog, contact. Unlike other wild animals, there is something graceful and noble about a deer. It really is a magical animal.

Do you remember this giant Dane George as big as a pony we were talking about earlier?
Well, two days ago, this giant from Arizona that weighs 245lbs, which is about 100 pounds more than an average Great Dane, was officially recognised as the world's tallest living dog, and the tallest dog ever by Guinness World Records!
Greeting to you George!

A Kiss Goodbye (5 pics)

Posted in Animals 26 Feb 2010   / 5215 views

Yes, the animal world can be harsh and cruel as well as ours is and it is much about the survival of the fittest and the most insolent. So here’s a story where a woodpecker and a grosbeak came across... Only one could stay with delicious food and the other one should kiss this food goodbye… Or maybe it was just a kiss winked

These photos are of a very cute little marsupial called a Sugar Glider and are from Australia. Marsupials are famous for carrying their young in pouches. Take a look how tiny the Joeys are. They are now legal to own in the United States and are the perfect size for your shirt pocket.

This little creature has features similar to that of Toruk, a fierce airborne predator almost impossible to tame. You'll see photos of its mini version in nature. Who knows, maybe Cameron was inspired by this little beast ;)

Fossa eats Lemurs when it isn’t sleeping (30 pics)

Posted in Animals 17 Feb 2010   / 6764 views

The animal in these photos is a ferox which is a carnivorous mammal that are found throughout forested areas of Madagascar. It is the largest of the predatory mammals of the island. The fossa hunts small to medium sized animals, from fish to birds. It is particularly adept at hunting lemurs, and is the predominant predator of many species, with only Madagascar's large snakes and Nile crocodiles being larger. Its prehistoric ancestors reached the size of a lion.

Brave or Stupid (29 pics)

Posted in Animals 15 Feb 2010   / 29120 views

The goats in these photos are either very brave or very stupid or both. I know that mountain goats are supposed to be good climbers but this is ridiculous. How they ever got in some of the places they got to in these photos is beyond me. In addition to being brave or stupid, maybe they can fly as well?

A Whale of a Story (13 pics)

Posted in Animals 10 Feb 2010   / 4790 views

The guy in these photos is sure going to have a whale of a story to tell his grandkids. Imagine getting the opportunity to swim with whales. They are truly majestic mammals. Apparently, judging from these photos, they are also very friendly. The beauty of the ocean must have only added to his enjoyment.

The Evolution of a Red Cat (18 pics)

Posted in Animals 8 Feb 2010   / 7103 views

Oh, kittys. They are so endearing. Little red kittys are especially cute. At birth they are ever so cute with their little red noses. Then they get a little older and are ever so playful. Finally, they become fully grown and are somewhat less playful and more like a large fluff of redness. What would the world do without red cats?

Gophers By Golly.. (20 pics)

Posted in Animals 5 Feb 2010   / 4524 views

Gophers are the cutest creatures as evidenced by these photos taken by Stefano Unterthiner. They seem not to have a care in the world and all their time is spent playing in their natural habitat. They appear so carefree and playful it should remind us all to take the time to stop and smell the roses.

A female bear escaped from a wildlife park and was spotted near one Polish village.
Veterinarians that were called shot her with a tranquilizer dart. Then they were going to load the animal into the car and drive it to the zoo.
But during the loading, the bear suddenly woke up and rushed on her captors.
You’d better run fast

Monkeys are truly amazing animals. There high wire antics as shown in these photos prove that. They have extraordinary balancing ability and seem to defy gravity. It would appear that only their amazing skill and the grace of the monkey that keep them aloft.
