Crow takes a shine to Gabi’s peanuts
A little girl who started feeding crows in her garden was surprised when the birds began bringing her gifts.
Eight-year-old Gabi now has a collection that includes dozens of shiny objects such as buttons, paper clips, nuts, bolts, a small light bulb and even some earrings.
According to a podcast on The BitterSweet Life, Gabi, from Rome, reportedly feeds the crows peanuts, dog food and general leftovers because she loves watching nature.
Crow expert John Marzluff says crows will sometimes try to build relationships with humans that feed them.
Bath water gets a bit nippy
An Australian zoologist has been showing off his relationship with his animals – by sharing his bath with a crocodile.
Chris Humfrey says four-year-old saltwater croc Snappy Tom loves nothing better than a nice warm soak.
And, according to a report on orangenews.com, the pair are often joined by Casper, a huge black-headed python, making it three in a bath.
Chris, who cares for more than 2,000 animals at his Wild Action Zoo, in Macedon, says he has no fears about getting up close and personal with his animals.
“Just call me Dr Dolittle,” he said. “I see all of the animals as members of my family.
“It’s about showing empathy and compassion – you’re shown respect and trust in return.”
