Sleepy hippo lets terrapins sunbathe on his back52s

Sleepy hippo lets terrapins sunbathe on his back

This is the touching moment a big old sleepy male hippo resting at a watering hole in South African allowed some terrapins to sunbathe on his back. The scene was captured at Kruger National Park last month by a tourist on a midday safari. He explains: "(The hippo) looked very lazy and sleepy at the same time. We suddenly noticed something on the back of the hippo. It was a turtle-lookalike reptile called a terrapin. Soon this terrapin was joined by another one crawling up the back of the hippo. From there it was another one and another one and another one. The reptiles eventually totalled seven individuals, all happily sunbathing on the back of this large hippo. "Surprisingly the hippo did not move during this whole time and never seemed bothered by the reptiles enjoying their midday sunbathing session on his back. "As with all reptiles, terrapins rely on their external environment to regulate their body temperature. These reptiles normally would be lying on a rock or a log in the water while warming up in the sun. This way they avoid moving onto land outside the water where they are vulnerable to predators. With no big rocks to rest on in this watering hole, the terrapins clearly decided that the back of a big old hippo will also just be fine."

Footage captured during the match on June 19 shows supporters in Bar Noord shouting and confronting each other. Objects can be seen flying across the space as Polish fans pick up the wooden benches lying strewn across the bar's floor. According to the filmer, who wishes to remain anonymous, the scene started off peacefully at the screening of the match in the Belgian city. The filmer said: "At first both groups got along – they all sang these football chants together, like Poles supporting the Senegalese people and vice versa." But the mood reportedly turned sour after Poland scored its goal in the 2-1 loss. The filmer added: "They [the Senegalese fans] started throwing drinks and started to whistle at the Poles. "So while they were throwing drinks, a Pole threw a drink back at them, and then the benches started to fly around the whole place." The filmer added that concerned families in the venue tried to make their way to the exit. Police intervened in the scuffle but no arrests were made. The filmer added: "It was calm after they arrived because they divided the two groups so we weren’t allowed to go home the same way." Senegal became the first and only African team so far in this year's World Cup to win a match with the controversial victory in Moscow yesterday.

Villagers cheer as wild elephant rescues friend after falling into 20-foot-deep well

This is the heartwarming moment an elephant helps its friend escape from a well it had become trapped in. The incident, a rare event caught on camera, occurred at a village near Sathyamangalam forest range in South India on June 20. Three elephants from the same herd had fallen into a 20-feet agricultural well on the night of June 19. Local resident Rangaswamy Gounder said: “We heard the elephants trumpeting in the night and saw three animals in the well this morning.” The villagers alerted the local forest staff who promptly arrived with a digger and carved a path out of the well. The oldest elephant of the three, a 25-year-old-cow, first climbed out easily and went to join her herd. The second elephant, a 15-year-old female, then tried to climb the steep path. A weaker animal, she struggled to climb, kept slipping back, and almost appeared to give up. It was then the slightly older and stronger elephant came to support it. The third elephant stood behind firmly to stop her from sliding back and nudged her gently to climb up. With a little help from a friend, she managed to find her grip and got out. The third elephant then climbed out easily and followed her to the forest where the herd was waiting. A large crowd stood near the well and noisily cheered on the animals as they struggled to reach safety.
