Goat accused of robbery in nigeria under custody!!
Goat to Jail, Goat directly to jail, Do not pass Goat, Do not collect 200, lol.
A heroic mother dog saved her 10-day-old puppies from a house fire in Santa Rosa de Temuco, Chile on Thursday. Sensing the danger to her babies, she picked the pups up in her mouth and moved them from the burning house to the safety of the nearby fire truck. She then gently placed the pups on the steps of the fire-truck as firefighters fought the blaze.
Apparently the dog, named Amanda, rescued her pups alongside of firemen when the blaze broke out in her family’s home. Amanda and her pups were taken to the veterinarian, but one puppy named Amparo, who had suffered severe burns, sadly later died. The veterinarian said that Amanda’s four other puppies were doing really well, but that Amparo had died from his injuries.
The vet, Felipe Lara, said that Amanda had fierecly defended her puppies when they tried to take them away from her to care for them but she eventually let them be checked over. He said that she wanted to stay with ailing Amparo though, and did not want to let him from her sight.

Dolphin Carries Her Dead Baby for Three Days
A dolphin carrying her deceased calf out to sea was filmed off the coast of the Guangxi Zhuang region, in China. The female dolphin was spotted carrying the 1.5-meter long baby on her dorsal fin as she swam in the Sanniang Bay.
It’s pink skin indicated it was a newborn and it is believed the female has carried it since its death three days ago. A large gash, approximately a foot long, was visible across the calf’s belly.It is possible the infant was killed by the propeller of a boat.
The dolphin was thought to be moving her dead calf away from the shore to lay it to rest in deeper water.

The $4,800 monster Tasmanian Crab! (not photoshopped)
Here is a crab that is probably the world’s largest.
The Monster Tasmanian Crab has a rather flaccid name ‘Claude’ and was found off the shores of the eponymous island below Australia. The crab was on his way to an industrial-size steamer but was saved by a British aquarium, which purchased him for $4,800.
With a shell that measures 15-inches across, he is expected to gr
ow another 3 inches until he weighs 30 pounds. He must be enough to serve an entire posse that has gone hungry for several days. At the aquarium, Claude is being fed gourmet diced mackerel and squid..

Lenticular Cloud over Litla Dimun Island !!
Litla Dimun is a small island between the islands of Suouroy and Stora Dimun in the Faroe Islands. It is the smallest of the main 18 islands, being less than 100 hectares (250 acres) in area, and is the only one uninhabited. One of the most striking feature of this island is that it often remains covered in clouds. This type of cloud is known as Lenticular clouds, so called because it is shaped like a lens. Lenticular clouds are always stationary and when formed over mountain peaks or islands, like Litla Dimun, looks like a majestic hat.

THE THORNY DEVIL !!
The Thorny Devil (Moloch horridus), also known as the Thorny Dragon, Mountain Devil, Thorny Lizard, or the Moloch is an Australian lizard. It is the sole species of genus Moloch and grows up to 20 cm (8 in) in length and can live up to 20 years. The Thorny Devil lizard is coloured in camouflaging shades of desert browns and tans; these change from pale colours when warm to darker colours when cold.
The species is entirely covered with conical spines that are mostly uncalcified. It also features a spiny “false-head” on the back of the neck; the animal presents this to a potential predator by dipping its real head. Females tend to be larger than males, and the Thorny Devil’s body is ridged in structure, enabling the animal to collect water from any part of its body, which is then channelled to the mouth.
RED TIBETAN MASTIFF BECOMES WORLD’S MOST EXPENSIVE DOG!
They say money can’t buy love – but £1million will get you man’s most expensive best friend. A red Tibetan mastiff has become the priciest dog in the world after being sold for 10 million Chinese yuan, or £945,000. Big Splash, or Hong Dong in Chinese, was bought by a coal baron from the north of China. And it’s lucky his new master is a multi-millionaire, because the hefty price tag doesn’t factor in Big Splash’s diet – enough chicken and beef to fill a growing 180lb dog, spiced up with Chinese delicacies such as sea cucumber and abalone.

- The real-life turtle wax: These bright yellow fish offer fellow sea creatures a swim-through valet service.. The turtle is left with sleek new bodywork while the yellow tangs get to feast on the algae growing on his shell. The cleaning service can take up to 15 minutes, depending on how much algae there is to be eaten off the turtle’s shell and tough skin..

Blind Sumatran orangutan mother will be able to see her baby twins for first time after ground breaking cataract surgery..
The Sumatran Orangutan Conservation Programme is delighted to announce that cataract surgery was performed on an elderly, blind female orangutan named “Gober” on Monday 27th August at 13.00.
Gober is unique, as in addition to being blind in both eyes, she is also the mother of two 18 month old twin infants, “Ganteng” (male) and “Ginting” (female). Furthermore, the father of the twins is also blind, as a result of being shot 62 times by an air rifle several years ago, 2 pellets being lodged in one eye and 1 in the other. “Twin orangutan births are not unheard of, “ explained Dr Ian Singleton, Conservation Director of the Swiss based PanEco Foundation and head of the SOCP, “I have heard of some 10 to 15 cases in my career, but twins whose parents are both blind is totally unique”.
Gober came from an area of mixed rubber trees and natural forest, where she had lived wild and reared a number of infants over many years. She was captured in late 2008 for her own safety, as she had become blind due to cataracts, probably as a result of her advancing years. “Based on the condition of her teeth we estimate she is probably well over 40 years old, and if we hadn’t brought her here she would have been killed by local farmers, as she was raiding their crops to survive”, stated SOCP veterinarian drh Yenny Saraswati. She now resides at the SOCP’s orangutan quarantine centre near Medan, in North Sumatra, Indonesia.
“Normally we don’t encourage orangutans at the centre to breed, as there are already far too many orangutans in captivity in Indonesia. We much prefer they do that after they have left, and are once again living free in the wild. But we made an exception in Gober’s case, since we knew she was a good mother and felt that being blind, it would dramatically improve her quality of life. We therefore introduced her a couple of years ago to another blind orangutan, a male named Leuser, who is blind in both eyes, as a result of being shot 62 times by an air rifle (twice in one eye and once in the other). But even then we were all very surprised when she produced twins”.
As predicted, despite her blindness Gober has been an exemplary mother to the twins and when an opportunity arose to operate, and perhaps restore her sight, the SOCP jumped at the chance. The surgery was performed on Monday 27th by Dr R. Arie Umboh, a “human” eye specialist from Samarinda, assisted by Ms. Juliana Sasambe, and SOCP vets drh Yenny and drh Rachmad Wahyudi. It lasted just 40 minutes and so far all appears to be going well. “We found no evidence of any damage to the retina of either eye and so I am very hopeful that Gober will regain a large amount of her sight, meaning that all being well, there’s every chance she will finally be able to see her twin infants for the first time very soon”, commented Dr Umboh.
