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

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.

Staggering Photos Capture the Otherworldly Beauty of Antarctica's Icebergs

Tokyo-based nature and untamed life photographic artist Martin Bailey catches the powerful excellence of Antarctica in this enthralling photograph arrangement. While the frozen continent is home to numerous seals and penguins, Bailey decided to photo the clearing scene without any indications of life, rather concentrating on the merciless and ethereal excellence of 1,000-year-old ice shelves and glaciers.
