photo by james snyder of a cuban tree frog who swallowed a christmas light when a bug landed on it. the bulb was gently pulled from his stomach, and the frog seemed no worse for wear, if however slightly insulted. but that’s probably because he’s so thin skinned.
This adorable fennec fox kit was born at the Everland Zoo in Seoul, Korea. Photographer In Cherl Kim captured this little guy when he was first introduced to the public. The fennec fox is the smallest of all the world’s foxes, but its large ears, measuring 6 inches (15 centimeters) are what make it’s appearance so irresistible. Their ears however aren’t just for show, in fact, their distinctive, bat-like ears radiate body heat for cold nights and help keep the foxes cool from the hot sun during the day [Facts: National Geographic].
