Animal Antics

The lion was unable to get higher up the tree as its weight meant it began to slip off the branches so the beast began growing at the herd of buffaloes below

The lion was outnumbered by the buffaloes and had to wait for them to lose interest before climbing down the tree

The lion was outnumbered by the buffaloes and had to wait for them to lose interest before climbing down the tree    After the lion clung to the Acacia tree branches, the buffaloes then lost interest and left the area 

But even though the lion could not climb any higher, the herd eventually lost interest and left the area - leaving the big cat to run down the tree and escape to safety.

 

Neelutpaul Barua, 39, from Mumbai, India, snapped the photos of the hiding lion while on a tour in Lake Nakuru National Park, Kenya.

He said: 'Cape buffaloes do fall prey to lions however, the tables turned this time around.

'A herd of close to 100 cape buffaloes chased this lion that ended up taking refuge on an Acacia tree.

'Power is often on the predator's side but today his weight was pulling him down-he wanted to be on higher grounds but kept slipping.

Residents in a usually quiet street in Brisbane's southwest were alarmed when they found a kangaroo having a coughing fit on their front lawns.

With the world in the grips of a health crisis, hearing any coughing is going to raise some eyebrows.

So when the residents of Middle Park heard the raspy barking, they were surprised to see it was Gary the kangaroo, a long time visitor to the neighbourhood.

Not sure what to do, local Ruth Dalton decided to call the RSPCA to get Gary some help.

"I jokingly said to the vet or the lady from the RSPCA ambulance: 'maybe he's got coronavirus'," Ms Dalton said.

RSPCA officers arrived and at first had a bit of trouble sedating Gary, but eventually succeeded and took him in for treatment. Thankfully, Gary just had a slight chest infection and was released back into nearby bushland after receiving two doses of antibiotics.

But Gary seems to be self-isolating from the other kangaroos and preferred the suburban streets, returning to Middle Park for some sunbaking.

Yet they too have to live through the lows of isolation. They spend less time outdoors, don't go for walks as often, and some sadly are even being abandoned, despite lack of scientific evidence that pets can transmit the novel coronavirus in the same ways humans do.Click through and see how pets are living through the current coronavirus pandemic around the world.

I hope they can breathe well!

Yes that is what I was thinking!

Cute!   

While they were trying to manage the steps I wondered how they got back up?

Those little flippers were working hard.

The second video at the end the look at their faces was, why did you bring us here?  LOL

Thanks Sophie.
