50th Annual Wildlife Photographer of the Year

Earlier this week, the top awards for the 50th Wildlife Photographer of the Year were announced at a ceremony held in London's Natural History Museum. This wasn't any ordinary contest, as the winners received their awards from the Museum Patron, The Duchess of Cambridge, Sir David Attenborough, wildlife presenter Liz Bonnin and renowned wildlife photographer Frans Lanting. Michael Nichols' photograph came out on top amongst 42,000 entries from 96 countries to take home the grand title award. To capture the shot you're about to see, he followed lions resting with their cubs in Tanzania's Serengeti National Parkpride for nearly 6-months and then photographed them in infrared, which "transforms the light and turns the moment into something primal, biblical almost."

iPhone 6 Fire

Phillip Lechter, a man from Phoenix, Arizona, says that his iPhone 6 caught fire while still in his pocket, burning a hole through his pants' front pocket leaving him with second-degree burns on his leg. As of today, Apple has not yet contacted him to explain how this could have happened. According to Lechter, "It's been a little over a week now, so I've had the opportunity to get some good medicine on it. It wasn't like a puff of smoke, I could actually feel my leg burning and I couldn't figure out what it was," says Lechter. Continue reading for more detailed images and information.

Duck Prosthetic Leg

While small dogs and cats can survive comfortably with three legs, larger dogs, horses, and farm animals require the limb to support their weight. Surgery has also been done on birds that are used for breeding purposes. Each prosthetic limb is custom-made to fit the individual needs of the specific animal. Dudley (above) lost a leg as a wee duckling when attacked by aggressive chickens. While he could still swim, Dudley had trouble getting around on land. So, mechanical engineer Terence Loring partnered with 3-D printing company Proto3000 to help fabricate an artificial leg. Continue reading for more.
