Philly Zoo's First Ever Black-Footed Kittens are Unbelievably Adorable

On April 8, 2014, Philadelphia Zoo welcomed three new little ones to their home as a Black-footed Cat named Aza gave birth a lovable litter of cats. The main ever Black-footed Cats ever conceived at the zoo, the little cats, named Drogon, Rhaegal and Viserion, are small little animals endemic to southern Africa.  (Love the Game of Thrones inspired names!) One of the smallest wild cat species in the world, a fully grown adult male weighs on average 4.2 pounds while a female weighs around 2.9 pounds. The cushions and underparts of their feet are black, hence giving them their name.

The Philadelphia Zoo imparted these heart-dissolving, off camera photographs that show the little cats accepting their check-ups. Routine systems incorporate inoculations, weighing and getting color stamped (or commented) so the attendants can let them know separated from a distance. Drogon, seen in the first photograph (above), is the embodiment of charm with his immense eyes and sweet gaze. At eight weeks old, he weighed only 27 ounces, or 1.7 pounds.

The Diving Horses of Atlantic City

For nearly half a century, Atlantic City, in New Jersey, United States, was home to an attraction almost too fantastical to believe—an apparently fearless horse with a young woman on its back would leap off a tower some 40 feet high into a pool of water below. The stunt took place at Atlantic City's popular venue Steel Pier, where trained horses took the plunge up to four times a day and seven days a week.
