Two Legged Lamb
A farmer in China’s Shandong province has saved a two-legged lamb after being touched by its struggle to survive. Farmer Cui Jinxiu said the lamb was one of two born in July 2010. “The first one was a very healthy and normal one,” she told Rex USA. “However, the second one surprised me. With a further look I was surprised to find that the lamb only has two legs.” The family thought the lamb wouldn’t survive, but it proved its strong desire to live. “I thought of dumping it after it was born, but the next morning it even stood up by itself.”

eepers, creepers — where’d she get those peepers? Heidi the cross-eyed possum has become a media sensation in Germany.

This lazy monkey hitches a ride to the top of a tree — by sitting on the back of a parrot. The squirrel monkey, which lives with a male and female parrot at a hotel in Colombia, was photographed by Alejandro Jaramillo after it hopped onto the macaw. These kinds of bizarre inter-species friendship aren’t unheard of, but they aren’t common.

Kabang, a dog in the Philippines, had her snout and upper jaw sheared off when she jumped in front of a speeding motorcycle, saving her owner’s daughter and niece from serious injury or death, according to newspaper reports in the Philippines.
After completing six weekly intravenous chemotherapy infusions, Kabang appears to have beaten the cancer she was suffering from.

One of the photos that the monkey took with Davids camera. These are the chimp-ly marvellous images captured by a cheeky monkey after turning the tables on a photographer who left his camera unmanned. The inquisitive scamp playfully went to investigate the equipment before becoming fascinated with his own reflection in the lens. And it wasnt long before the crested black macaque hijacked the camera and started snapping away sending award-winning photographer David Slater bananas. David, from Coleford, Gloucestershire, was on a trip to a small national park north of the Indonesian island of Sulawesi when he met the incredibly friendly bunch.

Giant Atlas moths have hatched at Berkeley Castle Butterfly House in Gloucestershire, England. These huge moths — the largest in the world — are native to the rain forests of Asia and South America. They don’t have stomachs and their mouths do not form properly so they don’t eat a thing during their two-week life span.

Ambam, a silverback gorilla at the Port Lympne Wild Animal Park in Kent, England, shows off the stance that’s turned him into a viral video sensation. Ambam doesn’t do the typical ape walk — he stands and struts like a person.

A female monkey lip-syncs during a show by the monkey drama troupe Prakit Sitpragaan in Bangkok in September. Prakit Sitpragaan has been performing traditional stories adapted from Asian classical novels and folklore in Thailand for more than 30 years.

A rare spider with a human face, known as a lichen crab spider, has been spotted at a nature reserve in Wareham, Dorset, England.

A small water boatman of the species Micronecta scholtzi is seen in this photo from the University of Strathclyde Glasgow. The insect has been found to use its penis to perform a very loud mating call. Scientists say the “singing penis” — relative to its body size — is the loudest animal on Earth.

Is it Elvis… or Bert from “Sesame Street”? This stink bug photographed in Singapore seems to be a fan of one of them — but it’s not clear which one.
