The Hawaiian green sea turtle floated in mid water while the almost luminous yellow tang fish busied themselves with the task of removing the algae from his body.In a similar scenario to a normal car wash, the turtles take it in turns to swim into this make-shift ‘cleaning station’ for their daily wash.Photographer Mike Roberts, 60, snapped the incredible picture while diving at Puako in Hawaii.He said: ‘The turtle is visiting a cleaning station of yellow tangs.

Oscar Clears Way For 'Cove' In Japan

the-cove1

An Oscar win by “The Cove,” a documentary chronicling bloody dolphin hunting in a Japanese fishing town, could give the film the critical audience its makers wanted to reach: ordinary moviegoers in Japan.

News that the movie won the Academy Award for best feature documentary was greeted with surprise in Japan because many Japanese hadn’t heard of it. The U.S. film, directed by former National Geographic photographer Louie Psihoyos, hasn’t been shown in commercial theaters in Japan except for a single viewing during the Tokyo International Film Festival in October.

Three Cheetahs Spare Tiny Antelope's Life… And Play With Him Instead

Hello little antelope, would you like to play with us?

Coming from three deadly cheetahs, it’s the kind of invitation that’s best refused – but amazingly, this impala escaped unscathed from its encounter.Luckily for the youngster, it seems these three male cheetahs simply weren’t hungry.That’s because unlike other big cats, the cheetah hunts in the daytime, either in the early morning or late afternoon. The bursts of speed needed to catch their prey tire them out – meaning they need to rest after a kill.And that seems to be the secret to the antelope’s survival, as it’s likely it fell into the cheetahs’ clutches when they were already full – and tired out – from an earlier hunt.
