The galago or bush baby is a small primate which can be found across many countries, mainly in Africa. No one is really sure how the term ”bush baby” came to be used but it has been suggested that the name is either due to their appearance or their sharp cry. This species is a very small primate which has an average size of approximately 5 inches (13 cm).

That’s a real FAT CAT
Could this be the world’s fattest cat? Janet Ciminelli of North Shore Animal League of America in Long Island, New York, holds Garfield, a 40lb feline. The obese cat was brought into the animal rescue centre after his owner passed away. Staff have put him on a diet and are looking for a new owner who is committed to helping him become healthy and active.Picture: Laurentiu Garofeanu / Barcroft USA

Solar Powered panels that are supposed to line the highway and help reduce animal road-kills during nighttime driving. It works in two ways: there are infrared sensors built into the body of Zerokill and when they detect an animal within the vicinity, they beam out subtle blinking LED lights, so as to warn the oncoming motorist. For the second part of the process, it reflects the oncoming car’s headlights, illuminating the sideways, as a warning to the animals. Like they say forewarned is forearmed!
