ONE HAPPY dog had a rough start in life, after being diagnosed with a fatal disease. Murray the Weimaraner was found as a puppy with his three siblings on Dead Dog Beach in Puerto Rico.

Male Jaguars Engage Into A Fierce Territorial Fight 2m26s

Male Jaguars Engage Into A Fierce Territorial Fight

Territorial claims and disputes are as deadly to animals as well as to humans. This video shows how determined one is to protect and maintain their territory. Nonetheless, with the overwhelming strength of the younger giant cat, the other is subdued. Should he fight till his last breath? Check the video to find out what happened. Territory – a factor that is so vital for anything that lives. Anyone who does not have a space he or she can claim as their personal territory feels so restricted and not totally free to thrive. Thus, it is so important for one to define his or her own personal territory, no matter how small it is. Whether one is willing to share the enjoyment of such territory to another living creature is a choice that could be deadly. For cats, territory is very important - as important as life itself. Marc Nussaume, a wildlife photographer is so lucky to have captured pictures and recorded videos while these jaguars fought. The two jaguars are named Scarface and Marley. They appear to be of the same size so it is difficult to say if they are young or old. But, as mentioned in the video, Scarface is twelve years old while Marley is four years old. At the start of the video, Scarface was shown doing his routine patrol over his territory of about thirty square miles. Wow, that is a wide territory, is it not? Well, if you read about the territory of jaguars online it says that female jaguars usually maintain a range of about twenty square kilometers to twice than this. On the other hand, the males have about double the range of the females territory. If humans build walls or fences to mark their boundaries, how do jaguars mark their territory? Perhaps, there is no need to answer this question as you already know the answer. Now, marking is as important as protecting and maintaining the boundary of such territory thus, the more important question is how do these big cats ward off intruders? No trespassing is their rule. These big cats are solitary in nature. They do not stay in a group like lions stay in a pack. Their tolerance level is so low that an intruder would surely spark a fierce fight. Nature photographer Marc Nussaume and his girlfriend Pailin were so lucky to have witnessed, snapped photos and take a video of this startling incident at Pantanal, Brazil when one male fights to defend his territory while the other fights to conquer and gain a new home. It must take much courage to track jaguars knowing that they are the beast of prey . With their long and sharp teeth and claws with a muscular body built and massive weight that may go as heavy as one hundred fifty kilograms, humans can easily be overpowered by these giant cats. Will you dare track jaguars to obtain a unique video of how they defend their territory? If you dare go, be careful. You are not a rival or an intruder of these giant cats’ territory but you are to them a sumptuous meal. Remember that these creatures, no matter how gorgeous their coats are, are extremely dangerous.

Family Shares Their Home With Two Bobcats4m31s

Family Shares Their Home With Two Bobcats

Cats are captivating, thus it is no wonder that people love having them in their homes. Nonetheless, here we are talking about domesticated cats. Will you be thrilled by the thought of sharing your home with wild cats, bobcats for instance? The thrill is real as wild cats may display divergent behavior compared to domesticated species. If you are up for the thrill, take a look at this video to know what to expect having bobcats in your home. If you are a cat lover, you might be considering keeping these interesting and awesome creatures.. Watching the video, one may not instantly notice that these cats are wild. If you do not pay attention to their size, their tails and ears, it is convenient to maintain the impression that the video is just another cat video posted on the Internet. Looking closely, these cats are much bigger than a home cat we regularly see. According to Melissa and Mick McAllister, the owners of these two bobcats named Gypsy and Monaco, owning bobcats mean having scratches. The good thing about it is that these injuries are suffered not because of aggression or anger. Melissa said that never were they hurt because their pets were angry – it is all during play. Since the claws of bobcats are longer and they are stronger too, the scratches that they cause may be deeper than those of domesticated cats. Cat owners of domesticated species agree that it is inevitable to sustain injuries when looking after for cats. While playing with them, they tend to bite and have a tight grip – this is how their claws manage its way penetrating our skin. If you are a cat person, you will agree that cats do put up efforts not to hurt their owners. When they bite, they won’t thrust their teeth with full force. However, they may still cause injuries and bleeding during the play. Other scratches are incurred while giving them a bath or grooming them – their claws are really sharp and once the they get in touch with the skin, it will sometimes cause tiny or even deep incision. Imagine having a cat that is double the size of what you have now, with claws that are longer and strength that is perhaps two times greater, too. This means you should always be prepared for injuries. Despite all these, the couple in Texas opted to keep two bobcats in their home. Why? Melissa mentioned that these cats are more loyal than any other pets that the couple ever had. She described how these creatures are so attached to them. Watch the video to hear the owners talk enthusiastically and with pride about these bobcats in their home. The owners also mentioned the lifespan of these cats and it is much longer than the domesticated ones. This means that owners won’t get very depressed for for the loss of their loving pets soon after they start looking after them. There is a longer period of time for bonding and caring, having fun and spending an exciting time with them. One question that a watcher may have in mind is since these cats are wild, can they be trained? One of the biggest concerns of pet owners is how to deal with the stench of their waste materials. Can bobcats learn to discharge their wastes in a particular place? You will find the answer in this video. Domesticated or wild, cats are amazing!

Animals are always the spread of fun and joy. They offer great companionship and never has anyone felt alone or rather lonely around animals. This goes to say that people who love animals often seem to get them as companions and sometimes they feel they need more. The story here is that not one or two buy more then 50 animals are in this zoo where these inmates work and a place where mutual help is insured. The inmates help the animals with providing them food and cleaning their shelters while the animals provide the inmates with great companionship and lots of love. This Florida prison has a furry little secret - a zoo full of alpacas, birds, alligators, a lemur and even a sloth. The farm at Stock Island Detention Centre, in Key West was founded by accident in 1994 when the prison fenced off an area underneath to protect a gaggle of ducks that kept getting injured while crossing the road between the jail and a golf course. Now the prison is home to over 150 animals, ranging from the original ducks and farm animals to alligators and a ten foot python. Jeanne Selander, who manages the farm, takes four volunteers from the prison to help care for the animals and maintain the farm. This is a great and inspirational way how one can give back to the community, especially someone who has run into some rough patch. This Florida prison has come up with one of the greatest ideas as far as giving the inmates a chance to be a part of something while also giving back to the community and growing aside these animals.
