When a female elephant collapsed in Thailand, it wasn't long before rescuers arrived on the scene. But, her distressed calf wouldn't let the humans near her, charging at them any time they got close. Eventually, the rescuers ended up separating the pair in order to treat the mother, whose exact injuries are still unknown. We're happy to know this sweet elephant is now getting the care she needs.
From the fields to the Arctic, expedition photographer Lauren Farmer captured the rare moment a polar bear cub vocalized. We'd like to think it was greeting the passing humans with a "Hello!"
