If you need a pick-me-up this week, these delightful echidna puggles may be able to lend a chubby hand.

According to Australia’s Herald Sun, a pair of baby short-beaked echidnas were born at Perth Zoo this August. The puggles’ arrival into the world reportedly marked a breeding milestone for the Australian zoo.

“These [baby Echidnas] represent the first successful breeding from zoo-born Echidnas and have shown that echidnas breed at a younger age than previously thought,” writes Zooborns.com. Read the rest of this entry »

Lioness Attacks Crocodile To Protect Pride (PHOTOS)

Lioness Attacks Crocodile

In a instant, a tense situation escalated to an attack, and one lucky wildlife photographer managed to catch a violent moment between a lioness and a crocodile.

“The sequence of six pictures of the real action were taken in one second,” photog Pia Dierckx told The Daily Mail.

Dierickx, 48, was observing the lioness and her pride as they prepared to cross a riverbed in Botswana. When a threatening crocodile appeared, the lioness sprung into action and grabbed the animal by its mouth. The two engaged in a quick but fierce battle, each biting the other, until the lioness ran off relatively unscathed, save for a cut to her lip.

Dierckx reportedly told BPNS that it happened so quickly, she didn’t even notice it.

“It was only when I downloaded my pictures later that I saw what had happened,” said Dierickx.

This isn’t the first time a lioness has been spotted protecting cubs. Last year, a mother lion was photographed rescuing her cub struggling on a slippery slope.

In another precious moment caught on film this year, a lion trainer visiting four young lions on his last day of work was overwhelmed by their outpouring of love for him.

Unfortunately, some lions are threatened by indiscriminate killing and habitat loss, according to the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species. Read the rest of this entry »

Scientists and yeti enthusiasts believe there may finally be solid evidence that the apelike creature roams the vast Siberian tundra, reports the Guardian.

A team of a dozen-plus experts from as far afield as Canada and Sweden have proclaimed themselves 95% certain of the mythical animal’s existence after a daylong conference in the town of Tashtagol in the Kemerovo region, some 2,000 miles east of Moscow. In recent years, locals there have reported sightings of the yeti, also known as the abominable snowman.

The Kemerovo government announced on Oct. 10 that a two-day expedition the previous weekend to the region’s Azassky cave and Karatag peak “collected irrefutable evidence” of yetis’ existence on the wintry plateau.

“Conference participants came to the conclusion that the artifacts found give 95% evidence of the habitation of the ‘snow man’ on Kemerovo region territory,” read a statement. “In one of the detected tracks, Russian scientist Anatoly Fokin noted several hairs that might belong to the yeti,” it added. The group also discovered footprints, a presumed bed and various other markers. Read the rest of this entry »

Ice Age Park? Russian, S.Korean scientists to clone woolly mammoth

A Siberian research institute has joined forces with the world’s most controversial geneticist to clone the woolly mammoth – a species that has been extinct for thousands of years.

Vasily Vasilyev, vice rector of North-Eastern Federal University of the Sakha Republic and Hwang Woo-Suk of South Korea’s Sooam Biotech Research Foundation have signed an agreement, and say they hope to produce a living mammoth within six years.

The union is no accident.

Although mammoths once roamed Earth, they survived the longest in Northern Siberia, with the last dying out less than 2,000 years ago – some 8,000 years after they disappeared elsewhere. The cold climate also meant that they were best preserved in that part of the world, meaning Russian research institutes like Sakha University have access to more frozen mammoth parts than any other.

Hwang is one of the world’s leading geneticists, and a celebrity in his native country. He was the first to clone a dog (Snuppy the Afghan hound, born in 2005) but was later given a suspended prison sentence for embezzlement and ethical violations when it was found out that he had faked some of his research.

Are We Part of a Single Living Organism?

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on September 28, 2011

Wonderful article. Life is nothing more than the specific combinatio­n of non living things. Unexpected minor change in the combinatio­n could cause drastic change in physical and consciousn­ess level. Combinatio­n of two cells develop in amazing way and forms different organs without external help. How that combinatio­n works in amazing way could be the answer of ‘Big Bang’ but we are just able to explain the process and not the source of process and conscious level. Who are aware they just guide us the process to be there and do not explain due to technical problem.

Miracle Dog Survives 40 Gun Shots and Being Buried Alive in Malta

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on May 29, 2011

By: MEGAN GIBSON

It’s been a tough week for dogs.

Right on the heels of this heartbreaking (but also sort of uplifting?) story of a dog surviving a tornado, we hear of another miracle dog.

(MORETop 10 Militant Animals)

A stray dog in Malta proved that she had the heart of a champion, when police officers discovered her buried in sand up to her face, her legs and snout bound, and suffering from pellet gun shot wounds to the head. Despite the horrible abuse (she had more than 40 pellet gun bullets removed from her skull), the dog, named “Star” by her rescuers, has managed to pull through. Read the rest of this entry »
