Not only people want to learn kung-fu and karate. Humans strive to learn the monkey-style kung-fu while monkeys try to learn our karate. It looks like this little monkey is on the right track, it’s even trying our cuisine. Seems only normal, since we eat bananas every day.
There have been many cases in which animals took in cubs that didn’t belong to them, or even their species, like this adorable little pig. But I’ve never seen a monkey taking so well to a couple of tiger cubs before.
After Hurricane Hannah ravaged the state of South Carolina, the tigers of one of the zoos started acting very aggressive and were considered a danger to their young. So these two white tiger cubs were separated from their mother and adopted by a 2-year-old chimpanzee. As you can see from the photos he’s really taking parenting seriously. I wonderhow their relationship will evolve…
I remember when I used to skate around with my roller-blades, but sadly, this little turtle can’t take his off.
A terrible accident in which it lost one of it front legs forced this turtle to spend the rest of its days on a roller-skate. It took a while to get used to it but now she’s always the first to arrive when food is served.
And there’s no better proof than the fellow in these photos, he has a much better punk hairdo than I’ve seen on most of the human members of the punk movement. Photographed in Mary River, near the town of Kenilvors, Australia, this blue-eyed turtle sports what looks like an outrageous Iroquois hair-style. But in reality, the green “hair” on the turtle‘s head is just green algae that grow parasitically.
I bet any punk-rocker would be proud to have this lovely turtle as a pet.
It was a hot autumn day in Texas when Fate decided to bring them together. Two Rattle Snakes looking for love suddenly found each other and the rest is history. As you can see from the photos, these two look beautiful together and just can’t keep their scales off one another. After the traditional courtship the two Rattlers left together to look for a private spot to…get to know each other a little better. Whoever said snakes were cold blooded should bite their tongue right now.

Well mainly because most of us are ignorant apes that only think of themselves…How dumb and cruel do you have to be to abuse a poor stingray that way? And look at the girls loving every minute of it, taking pictures with the “monkey” as if they’re at the circus. Why doesn’t it sting one of them, see if they keep smiling like idiots?
I mean shouldn’t things be the other way around? And if that had been a bull I would have understood…sort of, but that’s a freaking cow mounting a poor old woman. And look at that other “cow” just sitting there enjoying the show instead and rushing to her fellow human’s aid. So much for poor innocent cows huh?

I don’t exactly know where this kind of snake hunting is practiced but my money’s on Australia. I tried to find some info besides the photos but I couldn’t find anything; if you know more, please share.
Wherever they’re from, these snake hunters have balls the size of freakin’ Jupiter, I wouldn’t chase a snake in its lair even if you paid me all the money in the world, and armed with only a piece of leather around my arm and a small fire. Look at the photos and judge for yourself if this is courage or insanity…
There’s been a lot of speculations regarding the melting of arctic ice due to global warming, which spells disaster for all living beings, so scientists have decided to conduct some serios investigations and learn if there’s any real danger.
Sea-lions will play a serious part in the gathering of important data about the status of the ice, water temperature and climate change. A few specimens have been caught on the coast of South Georgia and a sensor with a special antenna has been strapped to their heads. When the animals swim in Arctic waters scientists will receive information vital to our survival.
I always believed elephants were incredible animals, but I never imagined they could something as extraordinary as painting, hell I have opposable thumbs and I can’t paint like that.
The elephants at the National Elephant Institute in Thailand have a particular skill that others animals and some humans don’t posses, they can actually pick up a brush and paint on a canvas. Thai elephants in particular are born artists, you often see them pick up a stick and start noodling in the dirt, and when properly trained they turn into genuine artists with a brush. Take a look at the photos and video and see for yourselves.
Everyone knows the size of the Anaconda snake and we all know it’s capable of swallowing a person whole, but there was no visual proof of this. Well this is about to change as you scroll down this page, that lump in the middle of the Anaconda is not an animal, I’ll tell you this much…
Up until a few weeks ago I was under the impression that hippos were peaceful animals that wouldn’t hurt a fly. I don’t know why, they just always looked like peaceful creatures to me. But after seeing some hippos attacking a crocodile and now this angry guy picking a fight with this antelope, I’ve reached the conclusion that hippos are not quiet, calm animals at all.
Two of the greatest predators on the face of the Earth go at it in an ultimate battle. The crocodile, practically invincible when in water becomes a target for a hungry leopard. I have to say the cat’s got guts, or it’s so hungry it’s desperate. In any case, the croc’s formidable bite and strength is no match for the swift feline. After a terrible struggle the leopard comes out victorious, my question is how is he going to eat its valuable prey…not even bullets can penetrate that hide and he ain’t got thumbs to turn that big lizard on it’s back. Oh well I’m sure he found a way, they’re pretty resourceful you know…
Did you know goats could climb trees? Well, anyway, I didn’t but it turns out, goats climb trees very often in Morocco.
These Moroccan goats you see in the photos climb the Argan trees with incredible ease, in order to get to the delicious fruits that the locals use to make oil. I knew some things about goats, but the fact that they climb trees was not one of them. And before you start yelling “It’s photoshopped!” check out the video at the bottom.
You might think that if you come across a deer while going fishing in the ocean right? Well I guess that’s what these boys thought to themselves when they saw this dow while they were fishing quite a long way from shore in Chesapeake Bay. The fish weren’t biting that day so they had time to look around and spot something strange in the water. This deer was swimming for its life and it looked like it had been doing that for some time. When it saw the boat it started to swim towards it but when it saw the guys it kept its distance. One of them had some cowboy experience and using a lasso reeled it in the boat. It was so tired that it couldn’t even stay on its feet, plus it was scared as hell.
When they reached shore they tried to set it loose but it still couldn’t move so they left it there, but after a while she recovered her strength and moved on.
