    Caes-hare-ian Section

    A woman who found a pregnant hare lying dead in the road performed an emergency operation to deliver its baby.

    Caring Leila Goss, 25, spotted the mother hare after it was killed by a car & noticed its swollen stomach.

    She picked up the animal, which was still warm & rushed her home to perform a caesarean section to try to save its young.



    She cut open the hare & brought one of her unconscious litter back to life - by draining fluid from its lungs & blowing down its nose.

    Leila, of Honiton, Devon, said the baby weighed just 4oz when it was born & it has never known the wild so she has decided to keep it as a pet.



    This cheeky bastard derserves a mention, too.



    This little rat - thought to be only two months old - was spotted scampering into the leopard's enclosure at the Santago Rare Leopard Project, in Hertfordshire.

    So intent was the plucky rodent on its mission to snatch a tasty snack, that it seemed not to notice that its path was taking it within a whisker's breadth of twelve-year-old Sheena.

    Clutching a corner of raw meat with its tiny paws, the rat busily tucked in, until it sensed one of those whiskers moving in.

    Sheena, bemused by the interloper coming between her and the remains of dinner, padded over on paws big enough to wreak vengeance with a single swipe.

    But rather than giving the thief at very least the hearty set down it deserved, she gingerly lowered her nose for an exploratory sniff.



    Rattus paused, then - obviously deciding on a nothing-ventured-nothing-gained approach - continued to tuck in.

    What you want a link for is beyond me, but if you really need to know, right-click the pics & click properties.

    I suspect out of everybody who reads this, none of them are particularly interested in a link, JJ.

    It's a news article being posted, it should have a link with it. Though of course we all knows it's going to be from the dailymail.

    Nice pics, cheers.

    In a complete contrast to the gentleness displayed by Sheena, this guy slams himself full-force into a crocodile.



    The crocodile attempted to fight back as the predators flipped and tumbled in a dramatic battle.



    But the leopard remained in control as the crocodile's legs clawed frantically at the cat's belly, its jaws snapping.



    Despite being outweighed, the leopard was able to sit on top of the crocodile and suffocate it.



    Fantastic animals.

    ^^^ Amazing stuff. I thought the croc would win that fight. Cheeky leopards opted for the sucker punch.

    That is quite amazing. Firstly that they'd be in the same area, secondly that the cat would bother with such a cantankerous and, lets be fair chewy feed.

    Croc looks like a salty or whatever they have the equivalent of in Africa.

    This is why I'd like a link, 'cos I'd like to know more.

    Why wouldn't they be in the same area, they share a habitat.

    Yes, obviously, but where? I see the river in the back ground. Is it a croc or an alligator?

    More than likely Africa, and it's a croc for sure as alligators and lepoards live on different continents.

    Great Vid, Thanks.

    Only a small croc and I think the lions are quite young, maybe. Fascinating though.

    Quote from vid

    "Lions hardly ever attack crocodiles. Normally they give each other a wide berth."

    Hence my suprise at photos of lepoard attacking a fair size croc.

    This is worth a watch.

    A gang-fight between lions, crocs & buffalo!

    You'd never guess who wins.
