Squirrel Mini Umbrella

Anyone who lives in or has visited Great Britain knows that the weather is unpredictable, so when photographer Max Ellis spotted a squirrel in his garden in Teddington one rainy afternoon, giving it a mini toy umbrella to shield itself was a no brainer. Getting this shot was quite tricky, as the umbrella was coated in sunflower seeds and peanut butter before being put on fishing line. Ellis says: "I considered building a covered walkway from their tree because I was getting cramp crouching behind the camera. Fortunately this one popped out and hung around exploring for about six minutes. As the rain got heavier, he was able to shelter for a bit but eventually gave up and headed off home."

Chain Chomp Cat Bed

Chain Chomps made their first appearance in Super Mario Bros. 3, and bear a resemblance to a ball and chain. Shigeru Miyamoto's inspiration for this character was from a childhood experience: a dog once tried to bite him, but fortunately, a chain held it back. As a result, this enemy also possesses canine qualities, like barking, and are commonly used as guard dogs throughout the Mario series. Catastrophic Creations decided to pay tribute by building a cat bed shaped just like the Chain Chomps found in game. The company says: "I wanted to design something that could sit in a room as art, but also have a practical use. The box that Chain Chomp's attached to has hinges mounted from the inside to hide them, but to let you open the box for storage. At first, I really wanted to make a litter box, because in my opinion most litter boxes are very ugly. I liked the thought of people showing off their litter boxes, rather than hiding them in some back room or closet. Once I started on the Chain Chomp, however, I realized it would be a little too small for a litter box. It was the perfect size for a covered bed, though!" Continue reading for more pictures.

For example, these animals were captured as if they had just witnessed something terrible, but in reality, something else just grabbed their attention rather than the piece of high-tech machinery right in front of them, making it the perfect viral image opportunity.

Tortoise Wheels

A hibernating 90-year-old tortoise named Mrs. T in Pembrook, Wales didn't expect rats to chew off her front legs, and its owner, Jude Ryder, feared for the worst. After spending £1,000 at the vet, the doctors did little to improve the situation, that is until...Ryder's son Dale, 37, a mechanical engineer, glued wheels from a model aircraft onto the tortoise's shell, enabling her to move twice as fast.

Before After Dog

Most animal geeks have heard that one human year is equivalent to seven dogs years, but the 1-to-7 ratio is not entirely accurate, however, as dogs of different breeds grow at varying rates. While larger breeds usually have shorter life spans than smaller breeds, they also reach physical maturity more slowly than their smaller counterparts. For instance, a Great Dane will be fully-grown at around 2-years of age and a Yorkshire terrier will reach full adulthood in approximately 1-year. Continue reading for more before and after images.
