Priami, a Reddit user, found a badly injured baby squirrel on the side of a road it. Priami's grandmother thought it was dead at first, but she quickly handed it over to her grandson for safe-keeping after noticing some movement.

The squirrel lived with them from 2007 to 2013, and these images document the many adventures they ad together. Continue reading for more.

Todd, who was rescued as a 4-month-old cub, has been raised as a domestic pet by his owner Emma D'Sylva, alongside her dogs Sky and Oakley.

Say goodbye to Internet Explorer, and hello to "Spartan", which will serve as the default browser on both the PC and mobile device versions of Windows 10. "Spartan" uses a new "Edge" layout engine forked from Trident that is "designed for interoperability with the modern web".

Jonty Hurwitz's sculptures are so small that they can fit on a single strand of human hair, or in other words, the size of an ant's head.

He says: "The structure is created using a ground-breaking new 3D printing technology and a technique called Multiphoton Lithography." Continue reading for more.
There are some things you just do not see everyday, not even on television, like a rare pink bottlenose dolphin. This specimen was spotted in a Louisiana lake by local charter boat Captain Erik Rue, 42, who has been studying the dolphin since it first surfaced in Lake Calcasieu, an inland saltwater estuary, north of the Gulf of Mexico in south-west Louisiana.
