Probably, many of you have seen how the sea lions briskly run up the stairs, take acrobatic poses, blow the trumpet and, of course, with amazing dexterity catch the tip of the nose thrown balls. True, keeping a sea lion in captivity is rather expensive - it requires 8 to 12 kg of fish every day, and certainly fresh. However, sea lions were trained not only for the entertainment of the most respected public. Even during the First World War, these talented pinnipeds tried to use for military purposes. With such a portfolio behind them, sea lions should not surprise or even amaze us with the stunts and the behavior they are capable to perform and show. And, despite all being said, they still do.

Loud lip-smacking groundhog will capture your heart1m00s

Loud lip-smacking groundhog will capture your heart

Grover the groundhog has suffered a little setback. He had been living happily at a zoo in Peterborough, enjoying all the freedom of a wild animal but with the added benefit of an occasional treat from members of the public and even the staff. He has burrows inside the yak enclosure and a few outside and his tunnels allow him free passage as he pleases. Although he is comfortable with people at a distance, he is not tame. Grover's problem began however when he was accidentally stepped on by a large yak. These are enormous animals with big feet and very bulky bodies. Grover appeared to be seriously injured and zoo staff quickly figured out that he needed veterinary care. Grover found his way to a veterinarian in Peterborough who is known for her love of all creatures and her willingness to treat wild animals when possible. Grover was examined and found to have no serious injuries. Bruising seems to be the extent of it. His treatment and recovery will be very straightforward. He will spend a few weeks in a wildlife rehabilitation until they are sure that there will be no complications. Grover will enjoy a very easy life and a lot of nutritious food while he is there and will likely find that the experience is as close to life at the spa as a wild animal can experience. While awaiting transport to the rehabilitation centre, Grover spent a little while in a carrier box at the veterinary clinic. He was given an assortment of spinach, apples, and carrots. He seemed to enjoy them all equally, but whatt was surprisinngly adorable was the very loud lip-smacking noises that he made while he ate. He showed no signs of being afraid of the humans who were examining and feeding him, although he also didn't show signs of wanting interaction. This is likely from living at the zoo where people are a common and non-threatening sight for him. Grover captured the hearts of the staff at the clinic with his furry little face and poor table manners. Have a listen to his slurping and smacking and he will capture your heart as well.

Little Jumping Spider from the Ecuadorian Amazon rainforest

This cute little Jumping spider in the family Salticidae was filmed in the Amazon rainforest of Ecuador. They do not build a web to trap insects, but jump on their prey and grab it with the jaws.

Playful Orangutan Poses For The Cameras At A Rehabilitation Center 2m05s

Playful Orangutan Poses For The Cameras At A Rehabilitation Center

Orangutans, just like the chimpanzees, are considered to be the smartest animals on Earth after humans. They are endangered in the wild, mainly due to the continued destruction of their habitats. Check it out as this playful orangutan poses for the cameras at Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre in the Malaysian Sabah District of North Borneo. The center opened in 1964 as the first official orangutan rehabilitation project for rescued orphaned baby orangutans from logging sites, plantations, illegal hunting or kept as pets. The orphaned orangutans are trained to survive again in the wild and are released as soon as they are ready. Today around 60 to 80 orangutans are living free in the reserve. In the wild, orangutan youngsters remain with their mothers for up to six years, who teach their skills necessary for survival in the forest. The most important of which is climbing trees. In Sepilok, a training system is used to replace the teaching of the mother. The younger monkey will be paired with the older one, who will transfer the skills necessary for the forest life. Recently rehabilitated animals have their own diet - daily feeding with milk and bananas. Food is purposefully monotonous and boring to encourage monkeys to start feeding themselves. The center provides medical assistance for orphaned and confiscated orangutans, as well as for dozens of other animals such as bears, gibbons, rhinoceroses, accidentally wounded elephants, other types of monkeys, etc. The center provides an opportunity to see orangutans from a close distance, which is impossible in their natural habitat. The boardwalk leads visitors to the viewing gallery and feeding platform, on which rangers feed monkeys twice a day at 10:00 am and 3:00 pm. Feeding time also attracts long-tailed macaques that live in this area. Some orangutans have ceased to fear people and come close, but it is not recommended to touch them. While monkeys are naturally shy and tender, the more mischievous of them can try to take a hold of your cameras or hat. In this case, you should refer to the rangers, since trying to fight a 200-pound monkey cannot be a good idea. The monkey in the video on the top of the page captures the camera in a different way. In the video we see a young orangutan who is well adopted in his new natural environment. The is walking on the bridge made for the rehabilitation center visitors but, like monkeys would, instead of using the boards made for walking, he is doing his stride in the side fence. The people visiting the center give the orangutan enough space to avoid him feeling frightened, but it seems the hero of our video feels quite comfortable associating with the quests. He even gives them an extra show – a photo session of him sitting in different poses and climbing the trees around the bridge as if to show what stunts he has learned there. It’s always a good time for a bit of monkeying around, especially under the watchful eye of the rehabilitation center employees. What dо you think about this video?

Beware little buddy, the angry bird wants you. Reportedly, mature birds tend to become hormonal once a year in the spring, when the amount of natural light is longer than the amount of darkness. Young birds learn to recognize predators by observing the behavior of other birds. Many species of birds make loud, scolding calls when they discover predators such as owls, cats, or snakes. Birds also use display as a way of settling disputes over food or territory, and to maintain a dominance hierarchy. Aggression between species is common. For example, a blackcap will intimidate a greenfinch, but will itself be seen off by a larger bird such as a great spotted woodpecker. What dо you think about this video?

Gopher eats apple in the most adorable way47s

Gopher eats apple in the most adorable way

Gophers are one of the largest rodents in North America. Part of the squirrel family, they are close cousins of the marmot and the groundhog. They are abundant and resilient, able to survive in almost any climate and terrain. They are also extremely cute when you get a close look. Normally shy and reclusive, they run for their burrows at the slightest sign of danger. Almost any movement will send them on a full trot in the direction of safety. The sight of a gopher at full speed is extremely comical due to their abundance of body fat which makes them jiggle like a bowl of jello. This isn't surprising, considering the fact that gophers spend the majority of their day eating and sleeping. They eat grass and plants of almost any kind, but they also adore fruits and vegetables. This large, female gopher has just given birth to several babies who are still nursing. They eat solid food too, but they are not yet weaned. Apple slices left beside her hole were irresistible for her and she grabbed hold of one and stood on her hind legs like a little person to gobble it up. This is a wild gopher, but it lives in a field beside an area with high pedestrian traffic. It was surprising how comfortable it was approaching the human who was offering a treat. But, as it turns out, somebody else has been feeding this gopher almost every day for two years. While the camera was recording, a young man walked by and dropped a piece of sandwich at the opening to her burrow. When asked if this was a normal occurrence, he explained that he always saves a piece of his lunch for the gopher and leaves it on his way by each afternoon. Sometimes she runs toward him eagerly as he gets close. He has found that she likes fruit, vegetables, bread, and even cookies.
