A Greyhound dog drinks water after a race in Santiago city, in this file picture taken March 1, 2014. Popular web videos showing that “cats rule and dogs drool” have new scientific evidence to support that felinophilic sentiment, at least when it comes to drinking. While cats expertly manipulate water to quench thirst neatly, dogs smash, slosh, spill, and splash their way, according to research unveiled on November 24, 2014. (Photo by Ivan Alvarado/Reuters)

A mother baboon lifts its baby into the air, on March 24, 2013, in Kruger National Park, South Africa. It’s a scene we’ve witnessed before – doting parents playing aeroplane with their young child. But astonished tourists watched as a loving baboon played the popular human game with its young. The touching moment was spotted in the Kruger National Park, South Africa, by Mariana de Klerk, 54, in March 2013. The pictures, which have not been seen before, clearly show the delight on the newborn’s face as its mother lovingly lifts it up to the sky. (Photo by Mariana de Klerk/Barcroft Media)

A great white shark swims around a diving cage on September 30, 2014 in Gansbaai, South Africa. A ferocious great white shark collides with a diving cage filled with adrenaline seeking tourists.The footage was shot by Canadian Jeremy Stewart who was holidaying in South Africa and decided to take the plunge in the dangerous waters of Gansbaai, ominously nicknamed Shark Alley. And the Vancouver native admitted that when the 10foot long beast lunged for a dangling piece of bait and missed, crashing into the protective enclosure, he was left awestruck by the strength of the magnificent animal.

In this July 12, 2007 file photo, a two-day-old piping plover runs along a beach in the Quonochontaug Conservation Area in Westerly, R.I. A court fight to protect the piping plover, a bird listed as “threatened” under the federal Endangered Species Act, is holding up a $207 million plan to replenish sand along a 19-mile stretch of shoreline on New York’s Fire Island. The sand was eroded during Superstorm Sandy. (Photo by Steven Senne/AP Photo)

In this May 5, 2012 file photo, an American Crow carries a dead fish in its beak as it flies above the beach in Bal Harbour, Fla. The critical ranges of more than half of the 588 North American bird species will either shrink significantly or move into uncharted territory for the animal, according to analysis by the society’s top scientist. While other studies have made similar pronouncements, this report gives the most comprehensive projections to what is likely to happen to America’s birds. (Photo by Wilfredo Lee/AP Photo)

It looks like an underwater tornado – but a diver was actually stuck in the middle of a huge school of fish. The fish swarmed around Mika Woyda in their thousands as she swam off the coast of Cabo Pulmo, Mexico. Her husband Caine Delacy snapped the breath-taking images of Mika in scenes he revealed he had never witnessed in 20 years of diving. Before entering the water the couple, who live in Boulder, Colorado, USA, had some shots in mind but never imagined what they would capture. (Photo by Caters News)
