Budi is a baby orangutan that has been rescued by International Animal Rescue in Indonesia.For the first year of his life Budi was kept in a chicken cage and fed on nothing but condensed milk which was slowly killing him. On arrival at IAR’s orangutan rescue centre Budi’s condition was extremely critical, and he was too frail to move or sit up on his own. He was showing signs of severe malnutrition and screaming in pain every time he was moved by the vets. To help Budi you can make a donation here.

Local fisherman have reported a disturbing rise in giant squid catches in the past year or so. They say the squid are coming closer to the surface and into their shrimp nets, which are dragged around the 300m mark. From what little is known about giant squid, 300m is the limit of where they rise to. They prefer anywhere between 600m and 1800m. When Shigenori Goto caught a four-metre specimen last year, he told the Japan Times: “I had seen no giant squid before in my 15-year fishing career. I wonder whether it may be some kind of omen.”

A great white shark desperately fights for its life – after being caught by a fisherman’s hook.The dramatic footage was shot by Lars Liedberg, 38, who had just finished having breakfast in a restaurant, in Plettenberg Bay South Africa, when he saw a struggle on the beach below. Liedberg said that following a prolonged effort to get the fish back in the water, the distraught shark was eventually helped into the ocean and was able to swim away.

A fishing enthusiast has captured the moment he reeled in a huge 10 foot bronze whaler shark after a two hour stand-off on a beach. Before the shark comes into view, the fisherman is seen clinging onto his rod as a crowd gathers around him in anticipation on a beach in South Australia. After hours of back and forth, the 200kg shark emerges into the shallow water after being ‘caught on a chunk of eagle ray as bait’. ‘It took several long powerful runs and led me up and down the beach,’ Jacobs said. He had been trying to catch the fish for ‘several years’ and used a custom made shark rod.

I wonder what this sand at the bottom smells like? Looks like a normal day hanging out with your dog by a river in Crescent City CA, except this dog might be some sort of super hero. Watch as he dives at least 12 feet below the surface to grab rocks at the bottom of the river.

This gallery shows the huge difference in body language these dogs have before and after they have been adopted into a new family. Does this make you want to save a dog?

Shark

Two Newcastle fishermen had the scare of a lifetime when a five-metre shark began circling their tinny before head butting the engine as they were trying to get away. Tim Watson, 24, captured footage of the close encounter which occurred half an hour off shore from Blacksmiths beach. He and friend Allan de Sylva, 23, estimated the shark was a metre longer than their boat and only “half a foot” narrower than it. After such a close call, Mr Watson said he’d continue to go fishing and respected the fact he was in the shark’s environment. “I don’t think it will stop me, I won’t go that far out in a small boat again, though,” he said.

“On my way home today I met a few of my friends and they told me that there was a small dog stranded on one of Nišava’s river islands. So we went there to try to help but from our perspective there was little we could do without some gear and tools. We started calling various institutions and people but only Mr. Saša Pešić from “Dog shelter” came to the rescue. Faith in humanity restored!” – Zox Raymaker. Shout out to Alex Hax for the submission.

A safari guide in Zambia has captured the moment a hippo decided to chase his boat. Hippos are easily provoked, and despite their bulk can move very quickly. The guide had to pin it or he would have been done for!

This is the moment an escaped elephant crushed a car by climbing on top of it during mating season at a Thai national park. The silver vehicle, carrying a family, was making its way through the Khao Yai National Park near Bangkok on the way to National Children’s Day celebrations nearby. However, the driver of the car was forced to stop as the male elephant wandered out into the middle of the road and started destroying their car. Fortunately the family inside were unharmed.
