When we think of Australia, it seems kangaroos are one of those that instantly pop up in our minds. Members of the marsupials, these creatures have become the living icon of the country but over the years, you have probably not heard of the tree-kangaroo.
In a sense, tree-kangaroos are very much similar to regular kangaroos. The only difference is that they are fluffier and, more importantly, resemble small tree-dwelling bears. Hence the name. Although most of them call the Land Down Under a home, some of them exist in New Guinea.
Tree-kangaroos are also known for being elusive. This is why little to none is known about them and their behavior. While it is true that their exact population remains to be seen, they are said to face the constant threat of being hunted. This is not to mention the ongoing habitat destruction.
Researchers believe that if these threats continue, these creatures will soon become extinct. Interestingly, the first tree-kangaroo born in captivity in more than three decades was welcomed to the world. It was held at the Perth Zoo, representing a hope for these creatures to survive.
Well, without further ado, here are the lovely tree-kangaroos from Australia. You are going to love them!
So, do you agree that tree-kangaroos are among the cutest things on Earth? Well, be it a yes or no, be sure to let know what you think of these creatures in the comments below!
Japanese Diver Befriends Weird-Looking Fish For 25 Years
Sebastian is not the only friendly fish in the world with Yoriko of Japan keeping his loyalty to his diver friend.
Among the animals in the world, the dogs and cats are the most typical kinds to care as pets because they are warm, sociable and they display emotions as if they were humans too. As for sea creatures, no one of us probably imagined being best friends with fishes except for that tight relationship we saw between Ariel and Sebastian in a Disney film.
Surely, we have close encounters with dolphins. They let us feed them, they let us swim with them, they cling to us and do some more staff with us. Fishes are not the same. We can put a goldfish in a tank, but they are not as sociable as dolphins. Sheepshead Wrasses though can be different.
This diver and fish have been best friends for 25 years now.
Monkey Suffers Caffeine Overdose After Imitating Human Drinking Coffee
They say curiosity kills the cat. In this case, a monkey’s curiosity knocked it out. A six-month-old monkey in Bangkok, Thailand slept for 10 hours after drinking coffee.
The young long-tailed macaque suffered caffeine overdose after it imitated a human drinking coffee.
We thought that drinking coffee will keep you awake. Coffee has caffeine, which alerts the receptors in the brain keeping us awake. However, like any other substance, one can suffer an overdose. For humans with higher tolerance, high levels of caffeine may cause faster palpitations of the heart.
Monkey lost consciousness after drinking coffee.
50,000-Year-Old Preserved Lion Cub To Be Cloned Back To Life By Scientists
A science experiment will try to revive a preserved 50,000-year-old lion cub back to life.
Can scientists become gods now? Is today’s technology already capable of bringing back a life? This sounds more like a fictional film like “Captain America” where Steve Rogers was brought back to consciousness after being frozen for decades. And he hasn’t aged at all! Real-life science nerds are, however, delving into an experiment where they will try to bring back a 50,000-year-old lion cub back to life.
An extinct lion cub, believed to be from the Ice Age, will be subjected to cloning and will be brought back to life after 50,000 years of being frozen. Scientists claim the cub was perfectly preserved with its paw resting on its head. The lifeless lion was discovered by local resident Boris Berezhnov on the bank of the Tirekhtykh River in the Abiysky district of Yukutia in Siberia, Russia.
