Antarctica's floating ice shelves are thinning at an accelerating rate. Many of Antarctica's ice shelves are huge. The one protruding into the Ross Sea is the size of France. They form where glacier ice running off the continent protrudes across water. At a certain point, the ice lifts off the seabed and floats. Eventually, as these shelves continue to push outwards, their fronts will calve, forming icebergs.  read more »

kind cows rescue baby seal; smart hitchhike: easy egret on gator, frog rodeo, cranky parrot, bossy mantis, borrow eagle's wing


rodeo frog: yeee-haw!


The original piggy back ride: "a seagull hitches a ride on a pig while it swims in the crystal blue sea off the coast of Bahamas. The secluded island of Big Major Cay is home to around 20 porky piggies and the island is affectionately referred to by locals as Pig Beach."


What do you mean you can’t go any faster?!
"A praying mantis hitches a ride on the back of a snail to avoid getting its feet wet on soggy moss in the rainforest. The snail, undisturbed by the apparent intruder, remained relaxed and stationary as the mantis stood on its shell.But travelling by snail isn't the fastest mode of transport and, after a little while, the mantis peers over and notices the snail has not moved."

Majestic Cecil, one of oldest, most famous lion kings, lured to tragic death - hunter paid $50,000, plans to kill elephant next

Cecil the lion rests in Hwange National Park, in Hwange, Zimbabwe

injury inflicted by hunter took 40 hours to kill the magnificent lion king

Cecil playing with his cub & loving his queen


*update* 08 August 2015
One of the 3500 remaining male lions, Cecil ("had some years to go"), is shot dead as 90% lion population has been wiped out. The following hunting figures may well distinguish and re-define "eliminating" from "hunting" -
Africa's Lion Population Has Declined 90% in the Last 75 Years;
Cheetahs Have Disappeared From More Than 75% of Their Range;
There Are More Tigers in Captivity Than There Are in the Wild
Every Cecil matters. A lot!
Only 3,500 of male lions roaming Africa.
