Picture links

Photo in the News: Rare Rhinoceros Spotted in Borneo Jungle: "The first ever photo of a male Sumatran rhinoceros in the wild"

But it's not all good news. "The West African black rhinoceros has likely gone extinct, the World Conservation Union (IUCN) announced last week. "[...]and Africa's northern white rhino could soon follow." (Link)

You want cute? We have cute: Albino Pygmy Monkey Twins Born. (Unfortunately one of them didn't survive.)

I cannot believe it. Those dumkoffs never ever get it, do they, no matter how often the Herald tells them. Isn't it obvious to everybody that the black rhino has simply moved from West Africa to Sumatra?

Prof. Helmut Kronk (Science Correspondent) said...

Yes, and another thing. No wonder that poor pygmy monkey died, again obvious...duh...it's been crushed between that man's fingers. You can practically see the poor thing fading in that picture. Very sad. And even sadder that I should make fun of it, so please, I ask one thing only: don't laugh after reading this. Please, respect my wishes and maintain a straight face for five minutes after reading this.

Those pictures are really very cute, well there is major contrast between the cruelity of humans and innocence of nature.
