    What a sweet face, Karen. I am so happy for her, and I am so happy for you!! ❤️❤️❤️ What's her name?
    She came with the name Polar. I really didn't like it and she didn't respond to it. I have since named her Bella. She responds to it! I can never replace my beautiful Blue Dog but I have this love in my heart that needed to be given and Bella needed love. She is still just a little skittish but the pound worker said, "she barks all day" and she has not barked since I brought her home!

    I'm not sure if I had already posted this one before - I don't think so. I find it really interesting - looks like something out of the prehistoric age.

    More big feet that 'belong to a common coot, a member of the Rallidae family. Coots flaunt remarkable “fissipalmate” feet, which means their toes are lobed. This adaptation is useful both to propel the bird while swimming and to help it move over soft, uneven surfaces. They have strong legs and can walk and run vigorously.'

    When I was a little girl visiting the public zoo in Denver, the giraffe and the donkey were my favorite animals.
    They just seemed so gentle and sweet.)

    "A man recorded the moment he was reunited with his beloved donkey after two agonising months apart due to lock-down.

    Friends and families all over the world have had to endure heart-ache due to the social limits enforced through social distancing and lock-down due to the global coronavirus pandemic.

    For Ismael Fernandez, 38, who was quarantined in the centre of Malaga, Spain, the long-awaited 45 minute trip to the countryside of Balmera on May 18th was a momentous occasion, as after two months apart, Ismael, and his beloved eight-year-old donkey, Baldomera, were finally reunited in an emotional display.

    The tears didn't just come from Ismael though, as Baldomera was quite obviously emotional to see her old friend again."

    Leaf sheep. It's the only animal that can photosynthesize. They are sea slugs that are technically animals but like plants, they get most of their energy from the sun.

    When leaf sheep eat algae, they suck out the chloroplasts and incorporate them into their own bodies in a process called kleptoplasty.

    They’re only about 5 mm long and can be found in shallow marine waters in Japan, Indonesia and the Philippines.
