The Cutest Creature On Earth

There is a plenty of animals that are dead cute: sloth, lemur, saw-whet owl, kittens, etc. The last animal that caught my attention is fennec fox)– this is the cutest thing I’ve seen in months! They totally remind me of Simba from the Lion King. Looks like a combination of a cat, fox, squirrel and a toy dog. I’ve never seen it closely, but the other day I came across a few pictures of it and couldn’t take my eyes off it. What I loved the most is its size and the size of its earls: they look bizarre and adorable at the same time.
This fox is found in North Africa. Small, furry and fast, it’s the smallest animal of the kind (“canid” – this kind includes dogs, foxes, coyotes, wolves, etc.). It needs such amazingly large ears as they help it to dissipate heat. Fennec catches and eats smaller mammals and insects. Its awesome ears help it hear them moving underground. They dig out holes in the ground where they live and hide from larger animals and birds, the main enemy of a fennec fox is an eagle owl – another awesome creature.The coolest bird on earth, I think. House dogs and hyenas also haunt fennec foxes. Anyway, those holes where fennec families live can reach 120 sq. meters (1 1/5 sq. ft)! Impressive huh?

Ferret in Your House

It has taken me much time to decide what pet I want to keep in my house. Cats look nice and you do not need to walk them, but they are too lazy. Dogs are friendly and loyal but they need to be cared after much. And then the idea came to me – ferrets! And, honestly, I have never regretted this decision. If you want to buy a ferret, too, you should note that keeping it requires special knowledge and preparation as well.

First of all, define whether your pet will be a male or a female as they differ considerably. Males are twice as large as females are a way calmer. So, if you want your pet to be curious and always active, you should choose a female ferret. Besides, you should note that your ferret will not get on well with your hamster, rabbit, rat or chinchilla – it will try to eat them instead.

Best Lakes of the World

As for me, the vacation and travel is always associated with some water reservoir. Only on the shore of some sea, lake, river or pond I can relax and feel the flow of life all around me. Seas and oceans are restless and amazingly beautiful, but these powerful elements make me a bit scared. I feel like something insignificant in front of this mass of water. Lakes, on the contrary, promise peace and harmony for the soul, so I dream of visiting the most beautiful of them one day and find myself on their shores.

How Big Cats Are Tamed

The performance with predators taking part in is considered to be the most dangerous one. The animal tamer unlike the other performers can’t use safety belts as the balancers or equilibrists do. On the circus arena an animal tamer can account only on his own stamina and courage.

According to the rules of safety there is always a gun lying on the crimp of the arena during the performance. Of course it is charged with the blank bullets and is aimed not to shoot an animal but only to frighten it with a sudden loud sound in an emergency situation. Though the lions and tigers which have taken part in performances for a long time and are accustomed to the loud sounds are likely to pay no attention to the shot.
