Olivia Lipartia has created over a dozen of illustrations that feature proverbs. Those are created for family business Lucky Laika that sells all kind of products with those illustations. The first picture with the bunny was so popular that soon enough one picture became proverbs series and it’s still growing.

The latest proverb illustration is with panda!
These enormous creatures are the creations of Scottish-born sculptor David Mach. He layered and enhanced a base form using hundreds, if not thousands, of wire coathangers to construct life-like sculptures of a giant tiger, cheetah, bear, gorilla and stag. Each creature looks amazing while frozen in time and displaying their ferocious roar.
A family in Russia has captured surprising and funny footage of a crow repeatedly and deliberately sliding down a snowy roof on a jar lid. While owls are traditionally held to be symbols of wisdom, it is the common crow that deserves recognition for its smarts.

The Internet has created a lot of beautiful and wonderful things for people to enjoy, but it’s all the luck of the draw. Sometimes something pops out that causes you to question the sanity of your fellow man. Take, for example, this series of pictures of birds with human arms.
On the internet, you can never have too many cats. Now, on two islands in Japan, a similar principle seems to be in effect. The islands of Tashirojima in Miyagi prefecture and Aoshima in Ehime prefecture are covered in cats – and tourists love it.
The platypus is a mystery to many of us because it’s such a wacky animal. It’s a mammal, but it also has a bill like a duck, lays eggs, and uses venom and electrolocation – none of which we’re used to seeing in mammals.
