Popular Chimpanzee Boxing Show in Bangkok

Once an popular show in Bangkok, Orangutan boxing Sow, was a big attraction, but it got forbidden in 2006. According to Borneo Orangutan Survival Foundation, orangutans were illegally smuggled from the Malaysian woods. They stayed in dark cages and were trained for the show. Some people say animals were abused. You must know that this wild species can be found only in Malaysia and Indonesia rainforests. Here are the photos how the show looked like. This orangutans look pretty fine, but I am not sure that the training was animal friendly. Gad to hear that there is someone who is thinking about this creatures.

The Pool of Baikal Seal in Irkutsk‏

The seal - is a live symbol of Baikal. It is one of its most beautiful inhabitants and the only species living in a lake. The Baikal seal is one of three limnetic seal species in the world, endemic of Baikal and it lives nowhere else. Looking for food, these seals dive 200 m deep and stay underwater for 20-25 minutes. They give birth to calves on the ice or in a snow lie. Most of the calves are born in the middle of March. In the first weeks of their life they have white fur that allows them to be almost invisible in snow. Adult mails achieve 130-150 kg and their length may be up to 1.8m, females are smaller. The life span of the seals is 55-56 years at most. It is hard to see seals in the natural habitat due to their reticence and fearfulness.
