Bootprint on Moon

This photograph shows a human bootprint on moon. It was the bootprint of Edwin Eugene 'Buzz' Aldrin, one of the crew members of Apollo 11 mission. The Apollo 11 mission was the first manned mission to land on the Moon. It was the fifth human spaceflight of the Apollo program and the third human voyage to the Moon. Launched on July 16, 1969, it carried Commander Neil Alden Armstrong, Command Module Pilot Michael Collins and Lunar Module Pilot Edwin Eugene 'Buzz' Aldrin, Jr. On July 20, Armstrong and Aldrin became the first humans to land on the Moon, while Collins orbited above.

The Beautiful Polar Bears

This is Polar Bear (Ursus maritimus), a species of bear native to the Arctic Ocean and its surrounding seas. Although it is closely related to the brown bear, it has evolved to occupy a narrow ecological niche, with many body characteristics adapted for cold temperatures, for moving across snow, ice, and open water, and for hunting the seals which make up most of its diet.

Although most polar bears are born on land, the polar bear spends much of the year on the frozen sea. That's why it is often regarded as a marine mammal. The polar bear tends to frequent areas of open water, such as polynyas and leads to hunt the seals that make up most of its diet.

The polar bear is the largest predator that spends time on land. Adult males weigh 352–680 kg (775–1500+ lb) and measure 2.4–3.0 m (8–10 ft) in length. Adult females are roughly half the size of males and normally weigh 150–249 kg (330–550 lb), measuring 1.8–2.4 m (6–8 ft) in length. When pregnant, however, they can weigh as much as 499 kg (1,100 lb).

The polar bear is classified as a vulnerable species. Of the 19 recognized polar bear subpopulations, 5 are declining, 5 are stable, 2 are increasing, and 7 have insufficient data. For thousands of years, the polar bear has been a key figure in the material, spiritual, and cultural life of Arctic indigenous peoples, and the hunting of polar bears remains important in their cultures. That's why many people believes that unrestricted hunting is a serious threat for this species and protests against such killings.

But, the International Union for the Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources (IUCN) now lists global warming as the most significant threat to the polar bear, primarily because the melting of its sea ice habitat reduces its ability to find sufficient food. The IUCN states, "If climatic trends continue polar bears may become extirpated from most of their range within 100 years."Recently, the U.S. Department of Interior listed the Polar Bear as a threatened species under the Endangered Species Act. We all must work together to save this beautiful animal from extinction.

World's Largest Box of Chocolates

Take a look at the photograph! This is the largest box of chocolates in the world. It's as big as a double decker bus and weighs almost 2000kgs. The huge treat was unveiled yesterday in London's Leicester Square and passers-by were urged to tuck in.

Thorntons, the UK based confectionary manufacturer broke the Guinness book of records for the World's Largest Box of Chocolates with over 175,000 individually wrapped Thorntons Moments. It measures a whopping 16.5ft tall and 11.5ft wide.

Skateboarding Dog

Take a look on the video. On this video, Tillman the skateboarding dog in the iphone commercial enjoys a day of skateboarding at Venice Beach. Very cute dog. How all these started? Tillman was born in June of 2005. He became a part of a family that included a boy, a rottweiler, Stoli, and a mixed breed rotti, named Teddy. The boy and Stoli loved to skate and once Tillman got a feel for it he never stopped. Since then Tillman has loved to skate and now that Stoli and Teddy have passed Tillman keeps their memory alive and just keeps getting better and better at skateboarding.

World's Largest Monkey

The Mandrill monkey which is related to the baboon has the distinction of being the world's largest monkey. The Mandrill (Mandrillus sphinx) is a primate of the Cercopithecidae (Old-world monkeys) family, closely related to the baboons and even more closely to the Drill. The word mandrill means "Man-Ape".

The male mandrill (Mandrillus sphinx) or man-ape of equatorial West Africa has an average head and body length of 61–76 cm (24-30 in) and a tail length of 5.2–7.6 cm (2-3 in). Adult males weigh an average of 25 kg (55 lb), although specimens weighting up to 54 kg (119 lb) and measuring 50.8 cm (20 in) to the shoulder have been known. The mandrill is also one of the most colourful mammals, recognized by its naked vivid-blue rump, red-striped face and yellow beard.

The Mandrill is found in the tropical rainforests of southern Nigeria, southern Cameroon, Gabon, Equatorial Guinea and Congo. Its distribution is bounded by the Sanaga River to the north and the Ogooué and Ivindo rivers to the east. Recent research suggests that mandrill populations north and south of the Ogooué river are genetically so different as to be different sub-species.

Mandrills are social creatures and live in large groups, primarily including females and young and led by a single dominant male. Most adult males are solitary. The largest group verifiably observed in this way contained over 1300 individuals, in Lopé National Park, Gabon - the largest aggregation of non-human primates ever recorded.
