Gorillas and other animals have the forest and the wild as their natural habitats. It is where they live, thrive and settle as families. Just like humans, animals also have a sense of belonging and can get cut too deep when it is separated from its families or group of species.
In this heartbreaking photo we found, a park ranger was captured sitting alongside a baby gorilla that had just lost its mother to poachers. Ranger Patrick Karabaranga from the Virunga National Park in the eastern part of the Democratic Republic of the Congo was seen wrapping his arms around the gorilla’s shoulder as if trying to comfort the animal after the sorrowful incident. In turn, the gorilla seems to respond with the empathy by putting its hand on Patrick’s leg.
Here is the photo:
The gorilla in the photo is just one of the three animals that were left orphaned due to the poaching incident. The siblings were brought to the park after their parents died.
Here is a video report of the incident:
Illegal poachers and traffickers do not only kill animals but also wound the hearts of the animals’ offspring and families. Although they do not possess the intensity of human emotions, these animals still have the right to live freely and safely in their natural habitats. This photo is just one of the most heartbreaking depiction of what is really happening out there, which we think should stop.

This tortoise can really go fast!
We know tortoises are one of the slowest creatures. They are even slower than turtles! That's how we know them, and there's even a fable dedicated to how slow they are in the story, "The Tortoise and the Hare". But there's one who has been set apart from all other tortoises by setting a record that's Guinness World Records-worthy.
He isn't just your regular tortoise. He loves strawberries and likes his girlfriend Shelly a lot. They spend most of their time together when he's not walking around the Adventure Valley Park in Durham, UK. He may seem like an ordinary tortoise, but when he walks, he surely goes fast!

GoPro Camera Tied To A German Shepherd Shows What Happens in a Puppy Pool Party
Ever wonder what happens during a doggy swim?
Early this year, couple Keith Knittel and Ashley Brown attached a GoPro camera to Lola, their beloved four-year-old German Shepherd to see what a day in a dog’s life is really like.
Amazed by what they saw, the couple then decided to see what happens during a doggy swim. The couple once again set up a GoPro on Lola before letting her take the plunge at a pool party in Lakewood Dog Park in Ohio. Both humans and dogs get to participate in the annual puppy pool party making the event more interesting.
Initially, Lola was a bit apprehensive to take a dip and just opted to hang out with humans on dry land. But after gathering enough courage to take the plunge, Lola proved what a great swimmer she is. Aside from making plenty of splashes, Lola made new friends at the event. At one point, Lola even had the guts to conquer the diving board....
