Bella the tiger, five months, is the leader of the pack, while the three lions, Delano, Romeo and Maximus, are also five months, but more timid. Meanwhile the eldest - Milika the hyena, six months - is the most mischievous in the motley crew. Layla said: ‘The naughtiest of them all is Milika - she’s very boisterous and likes to play fight with her siblings.’
Wolves develop close relationships and strong social bonds. They often demonstrate deep affection for their family and may even sacrifice themselves to protect another member of their pack. Photographer Klein-Hubert captured these photos of a grey wolf and her pups in Canada.
Wolves get a bad rap in folklore, but Jim and Jamie Dutcher spent six years (1990-1996) living among them to prove wolves aren’t big bad guys. The couple socialized with a pack from the time they were pups, getting an unprecedented look at the pack’s day-to-day life. “We formed a deep relationship … it was the kind of unshakable trust that wolves usually share only with their own pack, a bond that would last a lifetime.”
British photographer and film producer Paul Williams was on assignment in Sri Lanka on Sept. 10 when he came across a baby palm squirrel that had fallen out of its nest. Since adopting Rob, the two have been spending quite a lot of time together — the tiny rodent enjoys sleeping in shirt pockets, snoozing on camera equipment and climbing humans like trees.
