A picture is worth a thousand words. I couldn't resist reposting this, from a previous thread.


This long-tailed macaque was photographed tenderly holding a white-and-ginger kitten, which was only about 7 weeks old, in her arms as if it was her own baby. According to the photographer, the pet monkey cared for the feral kitten — grooming it and ensuring it was safe from harm — on the edge of a small river in the village of Lingsar, Lombok, Indonesia (article here).

This man has a cabin in the Alaskan wilderness and he started feeding the nighborhood bears and has developed a relationship with wild bears. Black bears and brown bears. These are not pets he raised from cubs, they are wild bears.

Bear man Charlie Vandergaw -- who once hosted the largest gathering of semi-tame bears in Alaska at his homestead west of Anchorage -- was Thursday fined $20,000 for feeding the animals and shackled with a 180-day suspended jail sentence.​

She sounds extremely confident and clear - do you know if any of what she speaks has been tested in some way?

I only know of this incident. It’s a good piece of evidence if nothing else. It’s interesting, she states that she isn’t directly telepathically communicating as we might think. Rather she is communicating with the “essence” of the animal.

Impressive, Wormwood; especially about her knowing there were the two other young leopards. Makes you think...

This seal is staring at me. This is all unfolding very quickly and that didn't work. I didn't touch the dead penguin so she grabbed penguins and she'd flip them on top of my head. So now I have penguins on top of my head and I'm sitting there just photographing and you've got the feet hanging in front. And I'm just not moving I'm just shooting now this is every photographers dream to have a top predator like this trying to .force-feed you.

“At or around an active fire front, birds – usually black kites, but sometimes brown falcons – will pick up a firebrand or a stick not much bigger than your finger and carry it away to an unburnt area of grass and drop it in there to start a new fire,”​

Though Aboriginal rangers and others who deal with bushfires take into account the risks posed by raptors that cause controlled burns to jump across firebreaks, official skepticism about the reality of avian fire-spreading hampers effective planning for landscape management and restoration.​
