Omo Valley is almost unique in the world in that so many different people inhabit such a tiny area. Historians believe that the south served for a millennia as a kind of cultural crossroads where quite different ethnic people met as they migrated from the north, south, east, and west. The peoples of the lower Omo Valley are considered among the most fascinating on the African continent.

Sadly despite expert care, her injuries were too severe and she would not recover from them, and so the vet decided the kindest thing would be to put her to sleep. As her pregnancy was so far advanced, the decision was taken to give her unborn fawn a chance. The little fawn Rupert was delivered by Caesarean section.
Otters are relatively social but if you have never had the habit to keep an eye on your camera, this is the reason to start. When they catch a prey- in this case a camera, they eat it on the run if it is small enough. If they need to grip it while they eat it, they usually go to a log where they can sit and eat, but I think they will not like the taste : )
Don’t play with your food, son! Fox cub tosses mouse snack around before enjoying his feast. It’s not polite to play with your dinner but no one told this naughty Mr Fox. Tossing a poor little mouse about like a rag doll, this cub may be having a great time – though for the meal in question, it doesn’t look anywhere near as much fun. Nature photographer Marcin Nawrocki, 34, from Poland, noticed a young family of foxes living near his home town of Kutno, when he was out searching for birds living on a river.

Meet the real-life Bambi and Thumper – a cute baby deer and a fluffy rabbit who have become absolutely inseparable. The cute pair became best friends last June when Bambi was found cowering at the side of a busy major road aged just one day old. Just like in the 1942 Walt Disney classic, poor little Bambi had lost her mother and was left all alone. But motorist Svetlana Harper, 35, spotted her shivvering by the roadside, brought her home and nursed her back to full health.
Only two-and-a-half weeks old but already weighing in at 40kg (88lb) a baby hippopotamus swims alongside her mother.
The calf was kept away from the other hippos in the zoo for the first two weeks of her life, while she bonded with her mother. In the wild hippos are gregarious, and live in groups of up to 40.
Female hippos reach sexual maturity at five to six years old and have a gestation period of eight months. Baby hippos are born underwater and must swim to the surface to take their first breath. Calfs rest on their mother’s back when in deep water and swim underwater to suckle.
This cute baby animals pictures are taken from travel zoo in Berlin.
All animals know that it is very important to keep teeth clean, some of them decided to help each others in this. Some animals, particularly carnivores, also use teeth for hunting or for defensive purposes. The roots of teeth are covered by gums. Teeth are not made of bone, but rather of multiple tissues of varying density and hardness.
Teeth are among the most distinctive features of mammal species. Paleontologists use teeth to identify fossil species and determine their relationships. The shape of the animal’s teeth are related to its diet.
Many insects are considered pests by humans. Insects commonly regarded as pests include those that are parasitic (mosquitoes, lice, bed bugs), transmit diseases (mosquitoes, flies), damage structures (termites), or destroy agricultural goods (locusts, weevils). Many entomologists are involved in various forms of pest control, as in research for companies to produce insecticides, but increasingly relying on methods of biological pest control, or biocontrol.

Ivan Dementievsky traveler brings from his travels not only the impressions and souvenirs, but also wonderful pictures. Thanks to him we will be able to go to Nepal, where every year in the spring of locals extract the honey of wild bees Himalayan.
The final destination of our journey – this village. The photograph’s main square, which probably 200-250 square meters. Naturally the entire village in the square. Evening, weekend, if not to talk. And then we come!
Are almost all men. Even the military, somehow found themselves in this morning in the village. But the production – it is the prerogative of the elderly. They even joked, saying the young need to plow the old man that the old man, if something happens, then let it be old but not young and strong man …
We are advancing with the first group, which is all that is needed for running over rocks, namely woven ropes and cables, and carved wood staircase. Prior to coming all the participants, ropes zamochut in water and will turn into stairs.
We got white caps with a grid of bees. We as a sluggish to react to this but when the guide was bitten by a bee on the forehead, we quickly equipped. It turned out that bees respond more and the dark, and here I had not sweet – for me it was a dark jacket. As a result of a finger, I got a bee
About 15 minutes after they started smoking, the bees were flying around in a rage, and to whom it has got. But then they become weak and can already be over – is less secure work and approach. Nepali one or two or more bee stings is not terrible, they have already developed a visible immunity, we have also bee sting will take a lot of trouble. If you look closely, you can at the top on a white background to see a lot of small black dots …
This virtuoso. When a teammate has left, this Nepalis had to work alone. By the way, they themselves tied with ropes to the ladder. I thought it was just we is not seen, and for us it is a wonder, but not to the place of gathering came a lot of local and they looked with curiosity at all this.
This is the appropriately named “Hand Fish”. It has hands and walks with them. Should fish have hands?
Using its fins to walk, rather than swim, along the ocean floor in an undated picture, the pink handfish is one of nine newly named species described in a recent scientific review of the handfish family.
Only four specimens of the elusive four-inch (ten-centimeter) pink handfish have ever been found, and all of those were collected from areas around the city of Hobart (map), on the Australian island of Tasmania.
The previously known spotted handfish, is found on sandy sediments at the bottom of Tasmania’s Derwent Estuary and adjoining bays. The fish use their fins to walk along the seabed, where they eat small invertebrates such as worms and crustaceans.
Handfish’s slow movements and tendencies to stay within tightly confined habitats would seem to make the fish easy targets for predators. But researchers think handfish have a secret weapon: a toxic skin that kills most attackers.
The red handfish, a previously known species, is listed as vulnerable in Australia, where it’s found only around the southern island state of Tasmania.
Not much is known about handfish, because their populations are low and they are not often seen in the wild. But researchers suggest handfish lay fewer eggs than most other fish species, which means their long-term survival is a concern.
Newly described as its own species, the Ziebell’s handfish typically has yellow fins, as seen in photo, but the species can also appear with a mottled purplish coloration. Ziebell’s handfish is found only in small, isolated populations off Tasmania and is listed as vulnerable in Australia.
Today all handfish are found only around southeastern Australia. But about 50 million years ago the animals likely inhabited regions around the world.
Just for the sake of fun and laughter! Well, that is what this is about… Getting to know animals better through the funny animal facts listed here. Like they say learning can be an entertaining process…
In this issue we offer you a selection of photos of the “building” of animals in one line.
Owls are known to be fascinating creatures, but do we think of them as funny? Well, as a matter of fact, they are quite funny and these pictures are testament to that fact.
We see many different kinds of owls in these pictures and as you can see they look extremely funny. To begin with, their large bulging eyes give them a very funny expression, no matter which type of owl they are. And when they close their eyes and cock their head to one side, it gives one the feeling that they are listening to a tune unheard by any of us. When they have their beaks open, they look like they are actually laughing openly. There is one picture of a large dog licking the face of a snowy owl which is exceptionally funny. Another funny picture is that of an angry looking owl being hosed down.
In this issue are pictures of funny moments involving wild animals. These pictures taken in different parts of the world, you’ll see the most unbelievable poses and faces of animals, as never make them look like a man. See and smile.
