incredible animal friends

LYNX ADORESDOMESTIC CAT St. Petersburg, Russia For some 12 years, Linda the Eurasian lynx could be seen gently licking the face of a smaller cat in her enclosure at the Leningrad Zoo in St. Petersburg, Russia. The other feline wasn’t Linda’s baby—or even another lynx—but a domestic calico cat named Dusya. Worried that Linda might get lonely, staff at the zoo introduced the lynx to the domestic cat when the animals were both just two months old. “They became friends surprisingly quickly,” the zoo’s Olga Volkova observed. “They were different in size but similar in character.” When not grooming each other, the roommates were snuggling during naptime or the tail playfully chasing each other around their shared two-room enclosure. According to Pat Bumstead of Canada’s International Society for Endangered Cats, lynx don’t usually have…

SUPER-SPEEDY TRAFFIC CONE Quick! Catch that… traffic cone? Rafael Sands holds the record for fastest marathon dressed as a traffic cone, finishing the 26.2-mile Los Angeles Marathon in California in just three hours, 45 minutes, and 26 seconds. Sands, who ran the race in costume to raise awareness for traffic safety, constructed his outfit using wiring, thick layers of fabric stiffener, papiermâché, cardboard, duct tape, and hot glue. BIG BOOTS The old lady who lived in a shoe would’ve been set if she had moved into one of these boots. The largest cowboy boot sculpture stands at 35 feet three inches high, taller than some of the buildings surrounding it in San Antonio, Texas. At about nine feet wide, these boots might not be made for walking. But a 10-year-old kid could walk…

7 extreme facts to blow your mind

1 If Mount Everest sat at the deepest part of the ocean, its peak would still be more than a mile under the surface. 2 The largest exoplanet discovered so far is a gas giant with a diameter more than twice the size of Jupiter’s. 3 The smallest dinosaur ever found would have weighed about as much as 2 paper clips. 4 425 Rhode Islands (the smallest U.S. state) could fit into Alaska (the largest). 5 A canyon on Mars is 2,500 miles long—about the distance from California to New York. 6 The world’s tallest building, the Burj Khalifa in the United Arab Emirates, is almost twice the height of New York’s Empire State Building. 7 The United States has more than 10 times more tornadoes every year than any other country.…

colorful corners of the earth

1 BANDS OF BLOOMS Tulips grow in neat rows in the Netherlands, where millions of the buds pop up each spring. Originally a wild-flower from Asia, tulips were brought to Europe by a botanist in the 17th century. Today, billions of flowers are exported from the Netherlands every year. 2 RAINBOW ROCKS Natural zigzag formations in Argentina’s Hornocal mountain range appear to change color depending on the shade of the sky. A rainbow of rock layers glows in fiery shades of orange and red, plus purple and pink. 3 MARBLE MARVEL Thanks to centuries of erosion, the underbelly of this towering rock formation found in Chile’s General Carrera Lake is pure marble. The white-rock caves feature swirling details that appear blue as they reflect the glacier-fed lake. One part is even known as Capillas de…

Dog Fetches Ocean Trash Boca Raton, Florida Lila the Labrador jumps off her owner’s boat and dives into the seawater. When she resurfaces, she has a glass bottle in her mouth. Good dog! The 10-year-old Lab often joins her owner’s cleanup crew when they pick up trash on local beaches and in the water. “I usually just say ‘Go get it, Lila!’ and she’ll run off to pick up the trash,” says owner Alex Schulze, who co-founded a company called 4ocean that sells bracelets made of recycled materials. Lila usually collects a few pounds of trash when they walk the beach. On the boat, she barks to let Schulze know she sees something before diving in. As a puppy, Lila loved retrieving things, even swimming to the bottom of the family pool to try to…
