Headbanger! Unlucky turtle slides down slope - and gets stuck

This is the funny moment a turtle slides and traps his head against a wall in Indonesia. The amusing scene, which was filmed on December 2 at Inyiak Tree House tourist resort near Bukittinggi, West Sumatra, shows the turtle stepping slowly towards a ditch.

The unfortunate turtle needed a helping hand from a human to be put back in position. Further video seen here shows a closeup of the same turtle and it trying to go up some steps.

Indian stuntman summons hundreds of crows with his voice4m32s

Indian stuntman summons hundreds of crows with his voice

Kirti Narayan is a famous Indian stuntman also known as a record "crow caller" for being able to call hundreds of crows using his voice. He has lent his voice to characters like Donald Duck, Johnny Bravo and number of tunes for mobile companies. “Only a person who has the zeal to experiment with his voice can be a voice artist. One needs a lot of patience, good knowledge of the language and the ability to connect with the audience,’’ explains Narayan. Footage captured in Jaipur shows Narayan imitating the sound of crows perfectly to convoke the birds. All of a sudden, dozens of cawing crows appear in the sky. Nayaran is currently working on reviving the character of Donald Duck through live shows and social networking websites.  “A few years back Chinese and Japanese cartoons had dominated Indian TV. With cartoons like Chota Bheem, there is great hope that the new generation will again accept Donald Duck, which is one of the cutest cartoon characters,” he says. His other focus is to create awareness about voice-over artist among people and inform them about the importance of this medium.  ‘’People often misunderstand him as a mimicry artist and he wants to clear that misconception. A voice-over artist is someone who feels the character and delivers dialogues accordingly, whereas mimicry is about narrating a few lines,” he informs.  Sharing more about his journey, Kirti says that he had never thought of becoming a voice-over artist. His love for cartoons and observing their body language got him in the industry. “I used to observe Donald Duck’s tongue movements very carefully and used to copy it. When Donald Duck, India was launched, I was amongst those very few artists who could talk perfectly like the character,’’ he added. Talking about the changes in his industry, Nayaran is happy with the rise in demand for voice-over artist after a long time due to social networking sites, radio and video channels. “There was a time when voice-over artists had to look for jobs in other departments. Awareness of different mediums and people’s openness to new ideas are motivating voice over artists to make a comeback,” ends Kirti, who is planning to launch an album of spiritual rap soon.

Tender moment breathless newborn husky is revived by owner

This is the tender moment a newborn husky puppy that was not breathing was brought back to life with CPR. The five-year-old mother dog named Brownie gave birth to six puppies in Samut Sakhon, central Thailand, on October 22. But the runt of the litter, the weakest of the baby dogs, was not breathing or moving and her eyes were closed. Naturally, she had been rejected by the mother to focus on the other stronger puppies. However, owner Nontawit Vasee, 30, tenderly cradled the struggling puppy and performed his own make-shift CPR and mouth to mouth resuscitation by blowing air into the female dog's mouth and massaging her heart. Miraculously, the puppy spluttered back to life and after six weeks she is as strong and as healthy as her five siblings. Nontawit named the survivor ''Katy'' and says that she is his favourite. He said: ''I was so relieved when the puppy came back to life. She was not breathing and looked very weak. We did CPR for about ten minutes, just putting air into her mouth and rubbing her heart. ''I am so thankful that we never gave up on her. Now she is exactly like her brothers and sisters. She is strong and has a lot of energy. ''Katy is six weeks old now and she is my favourite of all the dogs. She's so beautiful. We're very thankful to have her.''

Bus driver stops traffic to save lost kitten on road before passing biker adopts it

This is the heartwarming moment a bus driver stops rush hour traffic to rescue a stranded kitten before a passing motorbike rider adopts the animal. The frail moggy was seen struggling to stand as it limped between cars in Quezon City, Philippines, yesterday (December 3) - coming within inches of being run over. A passing jeepney driver stopped the packed passenger vehicle and help up the traffic while he scooped up the male kitten and placed it on the central reservation. Motorcycle rider Kristian Nabus, 30, noticed the rescue but was afraid the vulnerable feline could be hit once it ventured back onto the tarmac. Dashcam footage shows him yell ''Hey, give him to me'' to the jeepney driver who hands him the animal. Kristian, a software developer, then spent the day with the kitten in his office before taking him home after work. Kristian has now adopted the kitten, now named Aerox, and he'll live with the other cats at his office. He said: ''It was my first time to drive my Aerox bike, so I named the kitten Aerox. I guess it was a coincidence. I want to promote this kind of caring. ‘’I knew it wouldn't be safe for the kitten to stay on the road. Even in the bushes in the middle of the road, it would only be a matter of time before he walked out again and risked being hit. ''The jeepney driver wasn't to know that. He did the good work in the first instance by stopping traffic to save the cat. I just finished the job and made sure he went to a safe home.''
