A chameleon that had been missing for two months was discovered by passers-by – after it fell out of a tree.
RSPCA Inspector Tina Ward and animal welfare officer Jo Blackburn were called out to rescue the panther chameleon in Southampton. It was taken to a specialist vet so it could get some fluids and warmth, to be brought back up to the correct temperature.
Jo said: “In all the time I have worked for the RSPCA I have never come across one of these.
“In the wild these reptiles are tree dwellers so it is normal behaviour that he would’ve climbed up the tree. It’s obviously just very unusual that this tree was in the middle of Southampton!
“…Bearing in mind these animals originate from Madagascar it really is amazing that he managed to survive for so long outside, especially as it has been so cold.”
British bulldog to rescue
Ukrainian police have found a secret weapon to battle demonstrations in the city of Odessa – a skateboarding British bulldog!
The performing pup has already managed to work his magic on one group, when demonstrators descended on City Hall, the Daily Mail reports. The angry, placard-waving mob had gathered to protest against corruption.
But the anger turned to amusement and laughter and the mob faded away when skateboarder Sam swept into the square and started nipping through the masses on his skateboard.
Instantly, the crowd focused attention on the dog, which performed some impressive steering manoeuvres and was even able to turn the skateboard back on to its wheels every time it turned over when hitting someone.
Eyewitness Anatoly Hlushko, 25, said: “He was hilarious and impossible to ignore, he seemed very excited about the action and was smashing the skateboard left and right and running into everyone.”
Eventually though Sam, who is well known for his skateboarding stunts at an Odessa skate park, had enough and skateboarded off into the distance without stopping.
