The Endearing Story of How a Man Saved an Injured 3-Month Old Pelican

Tanzania is known as one of the African countries the “big five” game animals call home. The vast wilderness is home to elephants, lions, leopards, buffaloes, and rhinos, and this thriving tourism industry contributes to the country’s economy.

However, the country’s rich biodiversity is not limited to these popular game animals; the country’s plethora of national parks and protected areas is home to other animals too, including the great white pelican.

In 2013, Jeffrey Condon, tourist center manager in the area of Lake Tanganyika, came across an injured pelican. The water bird was just a few months old and was injured and probably separated from its flock due to a violent storm that passed through the area. Condon took the pelican in and taught it how to fish.

Watch the heartwarming video below of how Condon helped the pelican fly and fish on its own:

Watch This Naughty Baby Monkey Teasing a Serious Cat

They are an odd pair, but they’re truly entertaining to watch.

We have read about several odd animal pairs over the internet. We’ve seen a dog that has an unusual friendship with a bird, a bear with a lion, a mouse with a frog, a giraffe with an ostrich, and so on. These animals aren't from the same species but they couldn’t care less. It seems that all that matters to these creatures is that they love, protect, and enjoy each other’s companies.

These loving animals can be seen playing and doing different things together, and they're really adorable, right? But do they tease each other for fun too, like us human beings?

The cat and the monkey in the video below also share a special amity. And in the 3:32-long footage that has amassed- several thousand views on both Facebook and YouTube, you'll see the small ape repeatedly swing and fall from a tree branch. But while it swings upside down, it stretches its arms to the cat. Whether it is teasing the feline or inviting it to join his stunt, we don't really know for sure. What we do know is that you'll love this odd couple!

About three years ago, a person named Jeff Long was walking around somewhere in his home state of Florida when he found something on the sidewalk that would change his life forever.

Out of nowhere, Jeff found a newborn flying squirrel, which appeared to be clinging to its dear life under the hot Florida weather. He felt the sudden urge to pick up the tiny creature to help it but he knew that the odds of the little thing to survive is pretty slim.

Nevertheless, he brought the little critter home and against all odds it survived. Now that the adorable little flying squirrel is alive and well, Jeff made it a part of his family and even named the tiny thing, Biscuits.

He claims to be immune after injecting himself with controlled doses of venom and sustaining more than 160 bites from deadly snakes.

Tim Friede did not receive any formal training in snake handling- neither does he own a laboratory nor does he have funding for what he does.

But for more than a decade, this man from Wisconsin has dedicated his life to finding a human vaccine against venomous snakes. And he does it in the most unbelievable way you could ever imagine.

Dubbed as the “Venom Man,” Friede spent years developing immunity against the world’s most venomous snakes by initially injecting himself with controlled doses of venom. Then, he started taking actual bites from these deadly reptiles. For over 16 years, he has had more than 160 snake bites, according to the Nerdist.
