    No, you’re not hallucinating! Meet the chrysilla volupe, arguably the most colourful spider in the world. This particular species of jumping spider can be found across India and Sri Lanka but the jumping spider family contains over 6,000 different species!⁣

    Cheers.

    The most amazing waterspout picture I’ve ever seen. A woman took this pic in her back yard in Tampa.

    Echidna. Echidna's have spines like a porcupine a pouch like a kangaroo and lays eggs like a reptile. They also have a long sticky tongue for eating their favourite food , ants .

    Rare Albino Buck Spotted in Wisconsin

    BOULDER JUNCTION, Wis. - It's not the first time Tracy Weese has seen this albino buck. Weese, who said she had seen the buck before, took this picture Sunday of the animal in her backyard in Boulder Junction, Wisconsin.

    "His Majesty just strolled through our backyard ??," she wrote on her Facebook page.

    She wants him to get the credit he deserves. She said he is an albino, and not a piebald. A piebald or pied animal is one that has a pattern of unpigmented spots on a pigmented background of hair, feathers or scales.

    Weese said albino bucks look different when in rut. The brown stain on his hind leg is his tarsal gland that releases his scent. According to Weese, the buck had a brown/blood stained head and antlers because he rubbed his white velvet off on trees.

    It is illegal to shoot albino deer in Wisconsin.

    Let me help you!
    The interaction only lasted a few minutes, but it was certainly memorable. An orangutan reached out its hand to a man who was standing in a snake-infested river, as if to rescue him. The man was a conservancy warden with the Borneo Orangutan Survival Foundation and this orangutan came out of the forest to lend a hand. And what's really remarkable, is that we are destroying their habitat at a record pace, yet still... this orangutan offered a helping hand to the human. They really are amazing creatures!
