Diving with Manatees in Florida

1
Snorkelers interact with a Florida Manatee inside of the Three Sisters Springs in Crystal River, Florida January 15, 2015. On winter days, Florida manatees flock by the hundreds to the balmy waters of Three Sisters Springs, drawing crowds of snorkelers and kayakers to the U.S. sanctuary, where people may swim with the endangered species. But as tolerant as the gentle, whiskered sea giants can be of the accidental kicks and splashes of delighted tourists, wild life regulators want to ban most canoes and paddle boards and create people-free zones to protect the wintering “sea cow”. Proposed limitations for this winter are awaiting approval by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. (Photo by Scott Audette/Reuters)

Hippo is Scared of Birds

This is the hilarious moment a terrified baby hippo ran screaming for its mum when a flock of bird landed on its back in South Luangwa National Park in Zambia. The hippo was seen screaming, running and twisting from side to side in a desperate bid to shake off the red and yellow ox-pecker birds. Ox-peckers and hippos usually have a mutually beneficial relationship where the birds help free hippos of ticks and other parasites by feeding on them. (Photo by Marc Mol/Caters News/SIPA Press)

Riding a Snail

Frog legs it! Indonesian flying frog tries to hitch a ride on snail’s back before realising it would be quicker to hop it alone. A tiny frog struck up an unlikely friendship with a giant African land snail after clambering onto its shell to catch a ride. The bright green Wallace’s flying frog was spotted giving the snail a quick kiss before it hopped onto its back where it sat for a few minutes. Photographer Hendy Mp, 25, captured the unusual antics in the woods near his home in Sambas, Indonesia, and sat just 30cm away from the friendly pair while they played. “I couldn’t help but laugh when I saw them, it was very funny. I haven’t seen anything else like it”, he said. (Photos by Hendy Mp/SOLENT/Visual Press Agency)

December 27 – January 2, 2015: Animals

1
An injured hippo lies on the street after jumping off from a truck in Miaoli county, December 26, 2014. One witness said she rushed outside after hearing a loud commotion as she was watching TV at home and saw the hippo butting its head furiously against a parked car. The hippo was eventually overcome with exhaustion and lay down on the ground, appearing to be suffering from injuries including broken teeth and a broken leg. Witnesses said the hippo had tear-like watery secretions coming from its eyes. Staff at the farm said it was one of two hippos that was being transported from a temporary shelter to their renovated home at the farm. Staff members suggested that the hippo must have been startled at some point in the trip, leading it to jump through a ventilation window in their container and collide with a parked car. As the owner could not provide legal import documents for the hippo, an internationally protected wild animal, Miaoli police decided to turn him in to prosecutors for breaching the Wildlife Conservation Act. The Miaoli County government will also slap a fine of NT$15,000 (US$472.45) -NT$75,000 (U$2,365) on the owner for his failure to protect the animal. New transportation arrangements have been made to return the two hippos back to their habitat in Taichung, this time under sedation by veterinarians, according to a farm official.
