FacebookTwitterPinterestGoogle+

Check out these pictures of a dangerous rescue that had a heartwarming ending. A young fawn had become separated from its family during a period of heavy rain and flash floods in Noakhali, Bangladesh. The young fawn soon found itself trapped in one of the flooded rivers and in danger of drowning.

Boy Saves Drowning Baby Deer

That’s when a young local boy named Belal risked his own life to jump into the river and save the fawn’s life.

Where the river was the deepest Belal actually had to submerge his entire body except for his arms, which held the animal safely above the current.

Wildlife photographer Hasibul Wahab just happened to be there to capture the entire scene with his camera. The young boy wasn’t doing it for a reward and wasn’t doing it for the audience (only about seven people witnessed the act). He did it out of courage and compassion.

Best Drummer on the Streets. You Have to Watch This Till the End!

FacebookTwitterPinterestGoogle+

This young guy has a lot of talent! Street performers often offer the most interesting kind of performances because they have to get really creative to stand out (and make a living wage). What’s extra cool about this guy is that he’s only playing on buckets. He definitely deserves every bit of change people are tossing in the non-musical bucket.

Watch as a Fish On Wheels Explores Beyond the Limits of His Tank

FacebookTwitterPinterestGoogle+

Finally your goldfish is free to wander the house and go on walks, no leash required. A company called Studio diip has created a robotic car that, using camera and computer vision software, a fish can “drive” around. The camera tracks which section of the tank the fish is in and which direction it’s swimming, thus enabling the car to move about in the direction the fish wants to go. Not sure if the fish knows what’s going on, but it makes for a cool idea.

Pawel Kuczynski graduated from the Fine Arts Academy in Poznan with a specialization in graphics. Since 2004 he has devoted his work mostly to satirical illustrations and has won numerous awards. His topics range from politics to pop culture to life in general. The pictures may be simplistic in style but they are deep and powerful in tone. It is incredible how something so simple can speak so many words and convey so many emotions.

Animals Make Great Mothers And These Pictures Prove it

FacebookTwitterPinterestGoogle+

The job of being a mom is an important one for both humans and animals alike.

Take a look at these adorable pictures of animal moms being as loving, supportive, and protective as they can to their offspring.

Just as humans adopt and care for orphans some animals take care of offspring that aren’t theirs (or even the same species). It’s just that mom instinct kicking in.

Why is This Dog in Church? When I Found Out I Almost Cried.

FacebookTwitterPinterestGoogle+
Tommy1

Tommy at Santa Maria Assunta Church (Nikonarte Fotografia/Daily Mail)

A dog sitting in church might seem strange, but not to the residents of the small town San Donaci in Italy. An elderly German Shepard by the name of Tommy goes to Mass at a local church almost every day. He sits patiently by the altar and the priest, Father Donato Panna, says he has never made a sound when he’s there.

So why does Tommy come to church religiously day after day? It’s because it is the last place he saw his owner alive.

Tommy2

Nikonarte Fotografia/Daily Mail

Maria Margherita Lochi adopted the dog when she found him abandoned in the field near her home. She would bring him with her every day to church Father Donato would allow him to sit at her feet during the service.

Tommy3

Nikonarte Fotografia/Daily Mail

Maria passed away recently and her funeral service (which the dog also attended) was held at the church. Ever since then Tommy has been coming to church. He sits in quiet mourning in his same spot before the altar, waiting for his master to arrive. He is there at every Mass.

Tommy4

Nikonarte Fotografia/Daily Mail

It is heartbreaking to see Tommy’s show of silent loyalty and love. Dogs are incredibly devoted animals who share deep and unbreakable bonds with their loving owners. Have you loved on your pet today?

10 Outlandish-Looking Mammals. I Couldn’t Believe These Were Real.

FacebookTwitterPinterestGoogle+

It’s always exciting when a new species is discovered. But there are probably hundreds of species already known to the scientific world that most of us have no clue about. No this isn’t science fiction or fantasy. These mammals are very weird and very real. Check out these incredible creatures!

The Saiga

Saiga

Saiga (boredpanda.com)

This species of antelope is critically endangered and lives in the steppe zone of various European regions. The most striking physical characteristic is the flexible, over-sized, and extremely unusual nose structure.

The Pink Fairy Armadillo

Only growing as big as 3.5 to 4.5 inches this pink colored mammal is the smallest species of armadillo. It is a nocturnal animal that spends most of its time underground, where its large front claws allows it to glide effortlessly through the ground as a swimmer glides through water. If frightened it can bury itself underground in a matter of seconds.

The Maned Wolf

Maned Wolf

This large fox-dog-coyote looking mammal is found in the grasslands of South America. It is the tallest of the wild canids and it’s believed this is because it adapted to the tall grasslands of its native habitat. It also carries a particularly pungent odor, earning it the nickname “skunk wolf”.

The Tufted Deer

Tufted Deer (zoochat.com)

This small species of deer is located in the forested mountain areas of China high above sea level. Its most prominent features are the thick tuft of hair on its forehead and (in males) its fang-like canines. Despite its vampire-like appearance the tufted deer is timid and easily frightened.

The Okapi

Okapi

Okapi (wikipedia.org)

This living fossil, and what early European explorers called the “African unicorn” because of the difficulty locating a live specimen, is found in Central Africa. Though the Okapi looks somewhat like a zebra it is more closely related to the giraffe (though with a much shorter neck). The Okapi’s tongue is so long it can clean its eyelids and the inside of its ears.

The Sunda Flying Lemur

Sunda Flying Lemur

Also known as the Malayan flying lemur this mammal is part of a species known as colugo, which are gliding mammals characterized by the flaps of skin between their legs that allow them to glide about. Though it can’t actually fly and it’s not actually a lemur this animal is strictly arboreal, meaning it only lives in the trees and avoids touching the ground.

The Raccoon Dog

Raccoon Dog

No, that’s not a terrifyingly large raccoon. It’s actually from the canid species and is found in East Asia. These fluffy mammals are surprisingly good at climbing, and they often climb trees to forage for various fruits and berries.

The Gobi Jerboa

Gobi Jerboa

Gobi Jerboa (telegraph.co.uk)

The Gobi Jerboa is a species of rodent found in Mongolia and China. It’s nocturnal, hops about like a kangaroo, is extremely fast, and it’s large hears give it incredible hearing. The are many different types of Jerboas, each as little and cute as the next.

The Gerenuk

Gerenuk

Gerenuk (Christophe: freemages.co.uk)

This awkward-looking spindly mammal is known as the Gerenuk, which is Somali for “giraffe-necked”. Despite its similarities to the giraffe the Gerenuk is actually a species of antelope located in East Africa. It’s long neck helps it reach foliage in the upper limbs of trees. Its long and skinny legs are great for running quickly, but they are fragile and prone to breaking if the Gerenuk trips.

The Patagonian Mara

Patagonian Mara

Patagonian Mara (imgur.com)

This large rodent looks like some kind of cross between a hare and a woodchuck-type creature. Found in open and semi-open habitats of Argentina the Patagonian Mara is monogamous, which means it sticks with its mate until one of them dies. Another neat fact is that the offspring can walk almost as soon as they are born.
