An European bison (Bison bonasus) rubs its face in dirt after being relocated to Armenis, Tarcu Mountains, southwestern Romania, May 17, 2014. The bison, Europe’s largest living wild land mammal, has been extinct in the area for 200 years. Seventeen bison were brought here from Sweden, Germany, Italy, Belgium and Romania, in the biggest-ever bison transportation and reintroduction to have taken place in Europe, according to the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) and Rewilding Europe environmental organisations. It is hoped that the animal will serve as a regional tourism attraction, with a Bison Visitor Centre to be established in the future. (Photo by Bogdan Cristel/Reuters)

Biologist Rodrigo Cerqueira holds an armadillo, named Ana Botafogo in honor of the Brazilian dancer, at the Rio Zoo in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, Wednesday, May 21, 2014. The three-banded armadillo is in danger of extinction, largely because of deforestation and hunting in its habitat in the shrub lands of northeastern Brazil. Those risks in large part are why the armadillo was chosen as the World Cup mascot. Another is that when it’s frightened, it rolls up into a ball small enough to fit into one hand, looking like a tan soccer ball. (Photo by Silvia Izquierdo/AP Photo)
