There are glass igloos for rent in Finland where you can sleep under the Northern Lights!
This is Glaucus atlanticus, a sea slug found in tropical and temperate waters throughout the world. This photograph makes the rounds on Facebook every few months simply because it's so strangely beautiful.

Unbelievable Camouflage by Satanic leaf-tailed gecko. 
The satanic leaf-tailed gecko from  Madagascar is a master of disguise, but that's not the only way it avoids an attack from predators. It flattens its body against the leaves to reduce its shadow, and opens its jaws wide to show an intimidating, bright red mouth. Like many other lizards, it can also shed its own tail to distract a predator.

California Red-Sided Garter Snake.
This is how Giraffes drink water.
During the mating season, the female sits on a nesting ring while the males searches the entire beach for the pebbles looking for the smoothest one to present to their chosen female. Once a pebble has been selected, the male penguins presents the pebble as a token of love to the chosen female and if she takes the pebble and places it on her nest then she has accepted that penguin as her mate.

It's called a Lichtenberg figure - the branching pattern made by electricity as seen on the arm of Winston Kemp who was struck by lightning.
It's an amazing natural sight at Abraham lake with the Frozen bubbles under the ice.

Zanjeer, The Golden  Labrador Who Saved Thousands Of Lives.

In March 1993, a series of 12 bombs went off across  Mumbai ,  India . The serial blasts left 257 dead and 713 injured. But in the aftermath, an unlikely hero emerged. According to Reuters, a golden Labrador named Zanjeer worked with the bomb squad and saved thousands of lives by detecting "more than 3,329 kgs of the explosive RDX, 600 detona...tors, 249 hand grenades and 6406 rounds of live ammunition." He helped avert three more bombs in the days following the blasts.

The dog died of bone cancer in 2000. He was eight years old.

In the photo, a senior police officer lays a wreath of flowers on Zanjeer as he was buried with full police honors at a widely-attended ceremony.
