Drone captures mother whale and calf swimming off Chile3m26s

Drone captures mother whale and calf swimming off Chile

Mesmerising drone footage of a mother whale and her baby playing together in the water off Chile on September 8. The pair of southern right whales were seen around 100 metres from the Playa Grande beach in the town of Quintay where they gently swam next to each other in the surf. Authorities in the area asked the boats to avoid the whales and respect the rules of observing only the animals by not trying to approach them in the ocean. Gabriel Maldonado, regional manager of the Rescue and Conservation Unit of Sernapesca Valparaiso, said: ''The southern right whale is highly migratory and moves normally near the coast between Chile and Peru, sightings are rare but it is normal to approach the shore. ''It is not permitted to view them from boats because being so close to the shore can cause them to be disoriented and become stranded.'' The pair of whales stayed in the area for several days before moving on. After facing decades of indiscriminate hunting, the southern right whale is a world-protected species since 1936 and since 2009 it is in a critical state of conservation. The southern right whale can measure up to 18 meters and weigh an average of 60 tonnes with a maximum weight of 100 tons. Each individual whale is identified by the calluses that they have on their heads. The mothers accompany their young for about a year, during the period of breastfeeding, and during the austral summer these marine mammals can reach the cold waters of the Antarctic to feed on krill and copepods.

According to reports Kololli hauled to his feet and was able to continue. The match, which took place at GSP Stadium, ended 1-0 to Zurich. The filmer said: "When he fell down the home fans were cracked up! They obviously knew how deep it was." Additional footage seen here shows supporters setting off flares and waving flags in celebration of the game-winning goal as well as fans chanting before the game.

Escaped python sparks panic on busy road during rush hour3m29s

Escaped python sparks panic on busy road during rush hour

This is the terrifying moment a rampaging python brought havoc on a busy road as drivers battled to catch it in a cardboard box. The 12ft long python brought traffic to a stop during rush hour in Pasay City in the Metro Manila region of the Philippines yesterday (September 20). Footage shows dozens of men standing around the snake as it tries to evade capture, slithering along the tarmac towards bushes in a central reservation. They eventually managed to pounce on the unwelcome road user but struggled to get a hold of it inside the flimsy cardboard box. A traffic policeman arrived and pulled the serpent to the side of the road, before using a plastic crate, a black sheet and other tools before finally putting it into a sack. The sighting of the snake was particularly unusual in the highly urban, concrete area of the capital region of Manila. Shocken onlooker Maryann Te said: ''There was a big crowd of people all standing around so I went over to look. Pedestrians and drivers went to see it. ''The snake suddenly jumped up and tried to get away. It was a shock, very scary. ''The snake was very big, and I've never seen one like this on the road. I don't know where it came from. It took quite a long time to catch it. ''The snake should definitely not have been on the road. It could have caused an accident.'' Police called animal handlers who arrived on the scene and took the python away from the urban area to be released into the wild.

Shocking moment car driver throws puppy from window before good samaritan rescues it

This is the shocking moment a heartless sports car driver hurls a puppy from the window and speeds away before a good samaritan rescues it. The incident was captured by the dashboard camera of a vehicle travelling behind on Bayani road in Taguig City, Philippines on September 13. The yellow Mustang pulls up in a queue of traffic before winding down the window and tossing the one-year-old black poodle onto the tarmac. The terrified animal is seen scampering away onto the central reservation before the driver hits the accelerator and roars away. Michael Guzman stopped his own car and spent 30 minutes coaxing the dog to safety, which at first was too nervous to trust him. The pup was then hit by a passing truck, suffering a fractured pelvis, which ironically allowed Michael to finally get close and rescue him. Touchingly, Michael, a graphic designer, has now adopted the male puppy - named him Goyo - and filmed bouncing around in his loving new home, albeit with a limp from his injured hind right leg.

558 million year old fossil unearthed in Russia

The world's oldest animal dating back 558 million years has been unearthed in Russia this week (September 19). Our earliest ancestor was finally identified after traces of cholesterol were found on it, the blood fat that proves it is an animal, not a plant or other life form. The fossil looks like a cross between a leaf and a thumbprint. The bizarre marine creature grew to almost four and a half feet long (1.4 metres), and almost as wide. Scientists have described the game-changing discovery as the 'Holy Grail' of palaeontology.

Blind professor teaches young people how to surf in northern Spain

Aitor Francesena, 47, is a legend in the Basque Country surfing scene in northern Spain where he runs the first surf school in the country and trains some of the best elite surfers. Born with a degenerative eye disease, Francesena lost the vision in his right eye at the age of fourteen. In 2011, after a corneal transplant, he suffered an accident surfing that left him completely blind.  Since then, Francesena hasn't skipped a beat. He is still surfing and still coaching the country's youth as they climb the ranks of the national circuit and beyond.  ''The method of teaching being blind is different than when I saw it, when I saw it, I took them out of the water with every failure they made and gave them a feedback. Now I try to teach everything so that tomorrow they can be coaches and they do their own self-analysis,'' explains Francesena in the video. ''It is clear that apart from surfing being with a blind person gives them greatness. Being with a blind person, moving it, placing it and explaining everything they do in the water so that I can understand them and help them, I think that brings them a lot.'' In 2016, Francesena represented Spain in the Adapted Surfing World Championship and won the gold medal against seven other competitors from around the world.

Mongoose fights cobra, bringing traffic to a standstill

A bizarre and nail-biting fight-to-the-death between a mongoose and a spectacled cobra in Uttar Pradesh, northern India. The mongoose, whose name may or may not be Rikki-Tikki-Tavi, dashes up to the reptile, lunging at it with its teeth, while the cobra stays in a defensive stance. The mongoose pulls the snake around, refusing to back away from the reptile, retreting and returning to attack from a different direction. Drivers stand at a distance and allow them to fight while they watch and record the event on their mobile phones. Eventually the animal gets scared off by a loud bus horn and runs away leaving the snake right in the middle of the road. Rickshaws, trucks, bikes and cars move around the cobra, leaving it unharmed. Indian mongooses are famous for fighting venomous snakes due to their thick skin and agility.
