Be sure you don’t miss the videos at the end.
A mother chimpanzee who lived in a Zoo died recently and one of the Zoo employees took her baby chimp home to care for it. It never crossed his mind that his dog, who had recently given birth would adopt the chimp and raise it with her pups.
The extraordinary scene below was captured by photography student Casey Gutteridge at the Santago Rare Leopard Project in Hertfordshire, United Kingdom. A mouse just appeared in the leopard’s enclosure after the keeper dropped in the meat. He didn’t take any notice of the leopard, just went straight over to the meat and started feeding himself.’
The leopard bent down and sniffed the mouse and flinched a bit like she was scared. In the meantime the mouse just carried on eating like nothing had happened.

These photos and videos are just marvelous! I love animals, and this was almost like being there—watching the trust and friendship these various animals and birds displayed. Thanks, Dusky, as ever! Lorie
It’s so wonderful to see something like this as a counter balance to all the horrible news in the world. Made my day….
Ah, Dusky, you’ve done it again. Many of the scenes were quite touching. The cat with the white goat reminded me somewhat of your cat of years ago. As Ginny said, this was MUCH better than watching the news. Be well, friend.
Thank you so much, once again, for these wonderful photos!
The video of the MEN helping the dolphins that were stranded brought tears to my eyes. I’d love to know why they got stranded in the first place; they are supposed to be very smart. Maybe to let us know that something terrible in the environment is affecting them in so that they would be confused like that? Or maybe it was to give humans an experience of being kind and helpful? Or … who knows?
These are all so wonderful, beautiful and sweet. The one of the people helping the dolphins is so touching.
Instantaneous compassion shown by the spectators saving Dolphins reaffirms one’s faith in the goodness of human beings. Different species seem to have forgotten fine line that differentiates them and behave as members of the same family!
What a joy to find sooneme else who thinks this way.
