Grace Chon is a Los Angeles-based lifestyle photographer who specializes in animals. For her latest photo series, she decided to photograph her adorable 10-month-old son Jasper and Zoey, a 7-year-old rescue dog, in matching outfits. According to Bored Panda, "Zoey was born in front of a store in Taiwan and was nearly lost when the store owner simply washed her and her siblings away into the gutter. A passing schoolgirl who saw the incident grabbed the puppies and took them home - with their mother following close behind. After handing them over to an animal rescue team, Zoey was adopted by Chon in the US." Continue reading for more.

We've featured plenty of images that were captured at the perfect moment and time, now we bring you a set of animals with expressions that might leave you puzzled, starting with the rabbit above. In addition to needing sound technical skills, such as being able to expose correctly, wildlife photographers generally need good field craft skills. For example, some animals are difficult to approach and thus a knowledge of the animal's behavior is needed in order to be able to predict its actions. Photographing some species may require stalking skills or the use of a hide/blind for concealment. Continue reading for more.

No, the human-like teeth you see on that fish weren't added in later with Photoshop. It's called the Pacu, and these South American freshwater fish have square, straight teeth, just like a human, and a less severe underbite, or a slight overbite. Pacus inhabit most rivers and streams in the Amazon and Orinoco river basins of lowland Amazonia, where they form part of the highly diverse Neotropical fish fauna. They have also recently been found in the riverine systems of Papua New Guinea, where it is believed the fish has been introduced to aid the local fishing industry. Continue reading for more.

Organ transplants may soon be a thing of the past, thanks to this new method of regeneration. Humans have an organ called the thymus, which is critical for maintaining a healthy immune system and it also matures T-cells that help stave off infections. As people get older, the thymus begins to wear down, releasing fewer T-cells. In this experiment, researchers used middle-aged to elderly mice and stimulated production of a protein called FOXN1, which acts as a trigger for genes and is important in the thymus' development. The mices' thymuses responded positively, and organs grew to at least 2.6 times of their previous size and the T-cell counts doubled. Continue reading for a video and more information.

After the footage was released, rumors started flying, with some claiming that oarfish appearing in shallow waters is a sign that an earthquake will soon follow.

Duke University researchers have created living muscle tissue that can heal itself in an animal just like natural tissue would, raising hopes that further research will potentially lead to self-healing muscles for human injuries. They discovered that the test skeletal muscle developed at the Durham, North Carolina school was able to integrate into lab mice quickly, and then heal itself once inside the animal. They discovered that it was more than 10 times stronger than any previously engineered muscles by shocking it with electric pulses. Continue reading for a video and more information.
