For over a year he looked after him like a kitten in the courtyard of his house about fifty kilometers from Bucharest, Romania. But then the little lion Richie grew up and Lucian Craita, 27, realized that the pet was not the kind of life suitable for his "puppy". So after the ritual greetings Lucian entrusted the feline to an international foundation for animal rights that will lead Richie and 3 other lions raised in captivity up to Lionsrock, a reserve located in South Africa. There the lion, bought by Craita in a self-styled "animal market", will gradually be introduced to the wild life, and will be able to enjoy some freedom.

During pregnancy you know, you need to stay in shape. Especially when the gestation lasts for a year and a half and the expectant mother - except bump - weighs 3 tons! This is why Panang, an Asian elephant (Elephas maximus), a guest of the Tierpark Hellabrunn zoo in Munich, Germany, diligently followed all the lessons of Andi Fries, her prenatal stretching instructor.

So much constancy, it seems, was rewarded: last December the elephant gave birth, without any particular difficulty, to the small (so to speak) Jamuna Toni, 112 kilos of tenderness.

Better the caress of a girl or the padded step of a hairy tarantula?

Zhao Jing, 26, prefers the "spider mite", with whom he shares an apartment for rent in Wuhan, China. The other occupants are scorpions, boas, iguanas and lizards. And the owner of the house does not seem very happy that some time ago she tried, in vain, to have her keys returned. To save Zhao and his "roommates" from the eviction some neighbors who say they have become attached to unusual animals.

"Let's get blessed!" When their owner called them that, these two iguanas couldn't believe it. Yet it was all true. The lady put them on her shoulder to take them to the annual blessing of the animals of Los Angeles in California.

In a row with dogs and cats, turtles, pigs, hamsters and snakes, the two patiently waited for their sprinkling of holy water, imparted as usual by a true priest. The Catholic custom was born in 1930 and aims to thank the non-human species of services that have always been offered to man. Even today the procession is opened by a cow, considered the most generous animal. Follow the other farm animals and the lazy, but affectionate, pets close the line.

It may be because of that funny face, or his infallible musical ear, the fact is that Sara - here posing next to her trainer - has become the star of the Istanbul dolphinarium (in Turkey), where she lives. Darkening with his fame the other less brilliant tank mates.

But posing for the lens is not the only one of his feats. In fact, this walrus (Odobenus rosmarus) also plays the sax. Or rather pretend. And sometimes he even dances the tango clinging to his instructor.

In short, it certainly cannot be said that he is bored. And who knows if he would rather spend his days on the Arctic ice, as most of his fellows do.

Super-educated and winning walruses

In this video he performs on the notes of Michael Jackson:

When he sees her pass the body a passionate kiss (see also the video at the end of the page). It is the way in which the lion Jupiter shows gratitude to his savior: Ana Julia Torres, who 10 years ago freed him from a circus where he was abused. The feline has lived since then, surrounded by a thousand attentions, at Villa Lorena, a recovery center for animals in difficulty founded by Torres in Cali, Colombia.

In the company of Jupiter there are also a mutilated elephant, a blind monkey, a parrot with feathers damaged by fire and numerous undernourished animals. For a total of almost 700 specimens. Two other animal friends: the Peking cat and the tarantula breeder

"No shout in my ears!" So it seems that this man, guardian of the Nicaraguan National Zoo, tells his ape friend. This albino specimen of howler scimma (Aluoatta palliata) - called Nieve - has the habit like its peers of screaming at certain times of the day. Especially at dawn, at sunset and before thunderstorms. The vocation is due to a large larynx and a special bone that supports the tongue. During the courtship, however, the voice is not used: usually the females make the tongue "snap" rhythmically to conquer the partner. If the male accepts, he moves the tongue in the same way and in a short time the coupling happens, which does not last of 20-60 seconds.

The Chinese boy in the picture can be considered lucky. His little bird - the species is not perfectly understood, our experts put forward the hypothesis of an Indian blackbird - he follows him everywhere and on command he cleans his teeth with his beak.

Eating "advanced" food in the mouth of others is a fairly common behavior in some species of fish. It is less so among birds. But among them there are very original "toothbrushes", such as the guardian of the crocodiles (Pluvianus aegyptius). It is so called because it catches insects and parasites on the backs of crocodiles. Sometimes he ventures directly into the jaws of crocodiles and collects food between his teeth. This form of "cohabitation" between animals is called "cleaning symbiosis" as we show you in tomorrow's photo.

Paws joined in prayer. This devoted little dog named Conan - pictured here in the Zen monastery "Shuri Kannondo" of Naha, Japan - says he learned to "pray" by imitating his owner: the monk Joei Yoshikuni.

The Buddhist religion provides the maximum respect for all animals. A legend tells that at the death of Buddha all the grieving animals gathered as a sign of devotion. The only ones who did not shed tears, however, were cats and snakes, showing contempt for Budda and attracting the anger of Buddhists.

But in reality cats have always been loved in Japan, even by Buddhists, because they hunted mice that threatened silkworm farms.

"But who made me do it, " Nicolasa will be thinking, the cat perched on the table of its owner, the Peruvian surfer Domingo Pianezzi. Here they ride together the waves in front of the beach of San Bartolo, in Lima, Peru.

The athlete is convinced that the kitten has an innate passion for surfing. Just see how it manages to keep the balance perfectly, without ever falling into the water. Although another possible explanation could be that the pussy is so afraid of getting wet that it clings to the table with its claws, the only dry place in the surroundings.
