That monkey likes to live dangerously!

It's probably having fun teasing that tiger, and looks like it can easily escape, but do it too often, and one little slip will result in it being eaten.

Reminds me of some teenagers.

Coal dust has spread throughout the Great Barrier Reef and exceeds toxic levels near the shore...

... UNESCO threatens to list it as a World Heritage site in danger.

Professor Hughes, who is also the director of the Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence for Coral Reef Studies, said the report also found coal dust had spread hundreds of kilometres from ports.

Has anybody been watching the PBS nature shows on "Wildlife Sex"? The last two, on elephants and orangutans were wonderful--perhaps a bit explicit, but excellant. Further, the special on raising a baby orangutan with sign language was superb.
