The recent surge in poaching has been linked to the growing use of rhino horn among the wealthy and business class in Vietnam and China, where it is a gifted luxury item or used to treat a range of ailments, including a hangover. This increased demand in Asian markets has lured in crafty criminal syndicates on par with drug and human trafficking; once cut into small quantities for distribution, a single horn is reputed to bring in up to $50,000 per kilo, making it more valuable than gold. Poaching has become a lucrative business well worth the risk of exploiting legal loopholes and violating international bans as well as investing in expensive state-of-the-art poaching equipment, such as gun silencers, night vision …
Did you know? Hedgehog numbers have declined by 25% in just 10 years, and with Bonfire Night approaching, you can help protect our prickly friends. Where possible, re-site the entire pile before lighting. Alternatively, use broom handles to lift from the base of the pile, and shine torches to look for signs of life. Then light from one side only to give anything missed one final chance of escape. Find out more about caring for hedgehogs http://www.britishhedgehogs.org.uk/
A newborn baby gorilla at Melbourne Zoo in Australia gets a checkup at the hospital and shows suprise at the coldness of the stethoscope. Like humans, gorillas have two legs and two arms, 10 fingers and 10 toes, small ears on the side of the head, forward-looking eyes and 32 teeth. Unlike us, their arms are longer and more muscular than their legs, and their big toes look like thumbs. Their bodies are covered by thick dark hair, except on the face, chest, underarms, palms of the hands and soles of the feet. An adult male gorilla becomes a “silverback” at about age 15 when he is full grown and the hair on his back turns silvery-grey.

AAAAAWWWWWWW!!! We LOVE this pic ♥ Our children really are the future!!! It’s a good thing sloths don’t have to go to school. They’d never make it on time. These drowsy tree-dwellers sleep up to 20 hours a day! And even when they are awake, they barely move at all. In fact, they’re so incredibly sluggish, algae actually grows on their fur.
Truly AMAZING Wildlife Body Art Photos…human hands that have been painted to resemble some of our favourite wildlife species in striking ways. Most of these are the work of Italian artist Guido Daniele. Which animal would you like to create on your own hand???
WOW!! British wildlife expert Alex Larenty, 50, calms the cats with gentle foot-rubs. Alex, originally of Chipping Norton, Oxfordshire, moved to South Africa in 1999. He started massaging Jamu, nine, after putting insect repellent on him one day. He said: “I gave him a scratch and massage and he rolled around with his tongue out. Now he adores massages — his favourite game is This Little Piggy.” For more information check out http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FavRPQkmTVg
There have been many cases in which animals took in cubs that didn’t belong to them, or even their species. But I’ve never seen a monkey taking so well to a couple of tiger cubs before. After Hurricane Hannah ravaged the state of South Carolina, the tigers of one of the zoos started acting very aggressive and were considered a danger to their young. So these two white tiger cubs were separated from their mother and adopted by a 2-year-old chimpanzee. As you can see from the photos he’s really taking parenting seriously. I wonderhow their relationship will evolve…for those fans 14 years and older and able to access Facebook here’s the source: http://www.facebook.com/Milkyway.Nasa

It’s been another great day for ducks, umbrella sellers, gardens, tv execs, cinemas, and film units needing rain…we couldn’t resist from showing this cute photo. Do you have a best caption?
WOW!!! How cute is this pic??? When you curl up to go to sleep, you’re just getting comfy. When a hedgehog curls up to go to sleep, it’s for protection. Hedgehogs have prickly spines everywhere except on their face, legs, and bellies http://kids.nationalgeographic.com/kids/animals/creaturefeature/hedgehog/

Did you know? Polar bears are the world’s largest land predators. Polar bears live along shores and on sea ice in the icy cold Arctic. When sea ice forms over the ocean in cold weather, many polar bears, except pregnant females, head out onto the ice to hunt seals. Polar bears have been spotted on sea ice hundreds of miles from shore. When the warm weather causes the sea ice to melt, polar bears move back toward shore.
