Those are not flowers or snowflakes, nor are they small Easter parade hats or very tiny Komondors. These are a species of Planthopper Nymphs featured in the Smithsonian Channel’s Wild Burma: Chasing Tigersand they can spring quite quickly out of harm’s way. 

It’s probably best to not irritate small creatures, but thankfully these are quite a sight even when they’re not hopping or being irritated. Below, one is spotted at the Khao Yai National Park & Sakaerat Biosphere Reserve in Thailand:

Watch young David Attenborough try to piece together a massive broken egg shell (given to him by locals) in this 1961 clip from Zoo Quest to Madagascar: The Elephant Bird Egg.

The Elephant Bird was a large, ostrich or emu-like, flightless bird that lived on the island of Madagascar until its extinction, likely in the 17th or 18th century. How tall was it? From Wikipedia

Aepyornis, believed to have been more than 3 m (10 ft) tall and weighing close to 400 kg (880 lb), was at the time the world’s largest bird. Remains of Aepyornis adults and eggs have been found; in some cases the eggs have a circumference of more than 1 m (3 ft 3 in) and a length up to 34 cm (13 in). The egg volume is about 160 times greater than that of a chicken egg.

Below, Sir David visits the Elephant Bird’s skeleton in a museum in the capital city of Antananarivo:

Watch two legged Boxer Duncan Lou Who on his first trip to the beach:

Duncan was born with severely deformed rear legs that had to be removed. He has a wheel chair, but can’t stand to use it. So we let him be free and just walk on his two legs. There is some slow motion in this video, but NONE of the video has been sped up, this gives you an idea of how fast Duncan really is.

When Duncan’s puppy video went viral in November 2013, rescue owner Amanda Giese noted that he was doing physical therapy and hydrotherapy daily. By the look of this video, the exercise and therapy are paying off.

When camping, it’s good to know how to enjoy nature while keeping nature protected and out of your stuff. With this in mind, grizzly bears Ozzy and Bruno team up with ZooMontana keeper Krystal Whetham to demonstrate how easy it is for bears to wreck a campsite when campers leave food around.
