funnywildlife: Due to his owner’s negligence, a dog became lost in the deepest jungles of Africa. Wandering around, the poor dog notices a leopard hading rapidly in his direction with the intention of having lunch.Just then, the dog noticed some bones laying on the ground close by. The dog immediately settles down to chew on the bones with his back to the approaching leopard. Just as the jungle cat is about to leap, the dog loudly says, “My, that was one delicious leopard! I wonder if there are any more around here?”Hearing this, the leopard slinks away. “That was too close,” thought the leopard, “that dog nearly had me.”Meanwhile, a mischevious monkey had observed the entire scene, and decided to cause trouble for the dog, while getting on the good side of the leopard as well. The monkey dashed off after the leopard, to tell him what truly happened.The dog saw the monkey dash off, and suspiciously tailed him from behind. He overhears the monkey spilling the beans, and quickly decides on a course of action, racing back to the pile of bones.At the same time, the leopard has decided to take care of the dog once and for all. The monkey hops on the leopard’s back, to watch the demise of the doomed dog. As the leopard approaches, he can hear the dog talking to himself: “Where’s that lazy monkey? I sent him off half an hour ago for another leopard, and he’s still not back!” by Richard Millar Photography
funnywildlife: Elephant Whisperer Lawrence Anthony! The world – humans and animals – are infinitely poorer now that he is no longer in it. My thoughts to his family. “Last Thursday, after Anthony’s death, the whole herd came to the house and they have come every night since. Anthony was convinced that they could communicate on another level. And now here they are, every night, coming to say goodbye.
funnywildlife earth-song: ”blue shark story #1” by Alexander Safonov Blue sharks are the most interactive shark specie I ever saw in my life. They are not shy and come straight to the divers from all sides, so it’s very important to dive as a group and watch each other backs. We had about 10 sharks in the water with us, making circles and always coming back to sample port shade, strobe or strobe arm - or even tank, sneaking from behind ^_^ It was great adrenaline pumping ride - which I hope will be doing again sometime soon ! ^_^

Urals woman gets to keep her pet tiger!!A resident of the Russian city of Ekaterinburg, Svetlana Marsheva, is now officially allowed to keep as her pet the Amur tiger that she has been taking care of for several years.The woman told the media that she bought the tiger, called Caesar, from a traveling circus in 2008. The circus was intending to put down the rare animal, as he had some serious bone injuries of unknown origin. However, Marsheva cured the animal, and Caesar was put into an open-air cage at her workplace – until he was discovered there by court officials who had come to confiscate the property of the taxi company for whom she worked. The Public Prosecutor’s Office decided that the tiger was not being kept properly and Marsheva had to fight the decision in court. However, she twice lost her case, had to pay a fine, and Caesar was supposed to be handed over to a nearby zoo. After that the tiger’s owner made one last attempt and called upon the Federal Service for Supervision of Nature Management, who finally decided that Caesar’s living conditions were satisfactory.Thus, the persistent Svetlana has officially been allowed to keep the tiger with her. Now she is planning to make his cage bigger and to further improve his living conditions.
