Jaguar swimming across the Cuiabá River in Brazil

Leopards can swim when they need to, such as to reach an island or cross a river. Jaguars are superb swimmers and go diving for food, such as caimans and large fish.

Oh dear!   I bet that was so cold for the animal, thanks for sharing Farside

The moment a baby elephant, still learning how to walk properly, took a tumble as it tried to keep pace with the rest of its herd has been captured in a series of stunning photos. The adorable animal is thought to be less than a month old but was pictured trying to walk alongside the older animals. The pictures were captured by wildlife photographer Leighton Lum, 33, of Aiea, Hawaii, at the Ambolseli National Park in Kenya.

HOW THEY PREDICTED BIRD SPEECH 

Researchers implanted silicon electrodes in the brains of male adult zebra finches and recorded the birds’ neural activity while they sang. 

They studied a specific set of electrical signals called local field potentials. 

These signals were recorded in the part of the brain that is necessary for the learning and production of song.

Known as 'local field potentials ', they found they translate into specific syllables of the bird’s song.

And predict when the syllables will occur during song.  

 

 

Very interesting, thanks Celia.

Exposed: The puppy prisons behind the pet boom. They're offered for sale on websites to unsuspecting families. Now, the Mail's tracked down the farms where thousands of pups are raised in squalor and crueltyIrish puppy farm 'prisons' behind the pet boom - exposed

In the sparsely populated border region between the Irish Republic and the North, contraband has always flourished. Once, it was drugs and arms - but now the dealers trade in an even more lucrative commodity. Fragile young puppies are raised here in appalling conditions across a large and shadowy network of puppy farms, both legal and illegal. Many are then shipped by criminal gangs, destined for British families on the mainland who buy them from online marketplaces and what seem like legitimate family homes. The problem has exploded since the pandemic as the demand for 'lockdown pets' has soared. Government figures released last week revealed that legal imports of dogs from Europe (including Ireland) have leapt by some 75 per cent to almost 55,000 since January this year alone. But experts believe that to be a tiny fraction of the true number, as illegal trafficking masks the scale of the issue.

Appalling ... poor little puppies.

Nothing to be proud of Australia.

Heartbreaking images show a whale with a net wrapped around its mouth off Australia's east coast - as rescuers try in vain to help the distressed mammalVaucluse, Sydney: Images show a whale with a net wrapped around its mouth off Australia's

The whale was seen off the coast of Sydney's east about 2.15pm on Saturday with a net and rope wrapped around its mouth. The struggling mammal came within 100m to 200m of the cliff face. Onlookers told Daily Mail Australia they followed the animal to Maroubra once they realised it had a large net and rope wrapped around its body and mouth.

I loathe those nets ... should be be removed in whale migration season or altogether ... with new drone technologies now available.

Shark nets are a joke anyway as they are only a set number of metres long ... rather like hanging a few strips on your open door and expecting the bugs won't get in ... ridiculous.

 

Too true.   I suspect most of the creatures caught up in the damn things unknowingly swim around them and then get tangled up trying to swim back out.

 

They obviously have too much time on their hands!

Throwing stones at lions - a day at the zoo, Taliban-style: RICHARD PENDLEBURY witnesses a cruel scene as jihadis taunt pride of Kabul... with leopard pelts for sale in nearby market 

Throwing stones at lions - a day at the zoo, Taliban-style: Jihadis taunt the pride of

Perhaps the fifth missile of the afternoon arcs over the top of the enclosure. Again a miss, but they are getting closer. This one hits the wooden platform upon which the magnificent white lion is dozing in the warm sunshine. 'Hey!' shouts the stone thrower at the lion. Then to his companions: 'Is he sleeping? Is he alive? Is he even real?' Two aspects of this scene strike one as unusual if not shocking in the context of a 21st century zoological gardens. The first is that the helpless lion is being pelted by visitors. The second is that the visiting public are wandering about the zoo armed to the teeth with assault rifles, and even belt-fed light machine guns.

 

Disgusting.

I keep thinking of all the animals that have been burnt in this horrific explosion.

 

The full of extent of devastation from volcanic eruptions on the Spanish island of La Palma has been revealed in new satellite images - with 6,000 people forced to evacuate and hundreds of homes destroyed

I was thinking just now I have never included photos of animals in the sand!

So here are a few I have found.
