Ashol Pan.

13 year old Ashol Pan is one of the estimated last 250 Mongolian eagle hunters left in the world. And one of the very few women that are granted the privilege to be trained in this ancient, traditional hunting method. Golden eagles are used mainly to hunt foxes during the winter months.

A student designer has used a 3D printer to create an intricate prosthetic arm for one of his classmates, taking 45 hours to print it out.

Bird giving a dental checkup to giraffe 

Do you believe that a giraffe also cleans its teeth regularly?

The answer is YES! But it does not use a toothbrush. Instead, it’s a job for an oxpecker to make the giraffe’s teeth cleaner.

Yulia Sundukova, a Russian wildlife photographer, captured photos of a red-bill oxpecker giving a giraffe a dental checkup and picking scraps of food out of its teeth when she was on a trip to Tanzania’s Ngorongoro Conservation Area this October.

“The funniest thing about it was the way the giraffe was standing, it reminded me of how people behave when they’re at the dentist - it just wanted the visit to end as soon as possible,” Yulia told The Telegraph.

People have admired the beauty and charm of the creatures co-existing in nature and almost immediately the group of photos went viral.

Jurassic Coast meteor shower

As if this beach were not stunning enough, meteors brightening the sky against the backdrop of the Milky Way took it to a whole new level of beauty. When it was announced last week that we would be treated to a meteor shower, there was only one place bricklayer Jack Sargent from Coleford, England, was heading. Sargent, 22, made the trip down to the Jurassic Coast in southern England on Aug. 11, where he captured the meteors soaring past. (Caters News Agency)
