Steph, wonderful photo of giraffes, and manatee.
Dominic, that is an amazing moth ... looks like a bird's beak on the end of each wing. Whatever it resembles, it is formidable.
Dallas, your crab species is a new one to me. "Winterized".

Thanks for the dose of realism, Dominic.

I hope people won't romanticize this story.  While the facts are amazing, the rest of the story is that these dogs have short miserable lives, living on garbage, often abused by people, and producing sickly puppies who won't live through the winter.  I have also seen videos where some of these dogs are quite aggressive with people.  But what can we expect in a society where homeless children also run the streets.  The dichotomy in our own society is that some dogs are treated like spoiled children, above and beyond the needs of of a canine and sometimes detrimental to their health, while others. like Russia, are treated like throw away garbage.  I hate to be a downer, because the story itself is a wonderful example of adaptation and intelligence.
