Soft corner of wild animals towards small. . .

The extraordinary scene was captured  by photography student Casey  Gutteridge at the Santago Rare  Leopard Project in Hertfordshire.  Casey was astounded by the mouse's  behavior. He said: "I have no idea where the mouse came from - he just appeared in the enclosure after the keeper had dropped in the meat for the leopard." "He didn't take any notice of the leopard, just went straight over to the meat and started feeding. But the leopard was pretty surprised, she bent down and sniffed the mouse and flinched a bit like she was scared. In the meantime the mouse just carried on eating like nothing had happened." She gave him a shove with her nose, but even a gentle shove does not deter the little creature from getting his fill.

Underground Skyscraper in Mexico City

Image
The Earthscraper, designed by  BNKR Arquitectura , is the Skyscraper’s antagonist in the historic urban landscape of Mexico City where the latter is condemned and the preservation of the built environment is the paramount ambition. It preserves the iconic presence of the city square and the existing hierarchy of the buildings that surround it. More images and architects’ description after the break. The Historic Center of Mexico City is composed of different layers of cities superimposed on top of each other. When the Aztecs first came into the Valley of Mexico they built their pyramids on the lake they found there. When a new and bigger pyramid was conceived and the Aztec Empire grew in size and power, they did not search for a new site, they just built on it and around the existing one. In this manner, the pyramids are composed of different layers of historical periods. When the Spanish arrived in America and ultimately conquered the Aztecs, they erected their Christian temple

The Magdeburg Water Bridge

The Magdeburg Water Bridge  (German: Wasserstraßenkreuz) is a navigable aqueduct in Germany, opened in October 2003 . It connects the Elbe-Havel Canal to the Mittellandkanal, crossing over the Elbe River. It is notable for being the longest navigable aqueduct in the world, with a total length of  918 metres (3,012 ft). The Elbe–Havel Canal and Mittelland Canal canals had previously met near Magdeburg but on opposite sides of the Elbe, which was at a significantly lower elevation than the two canals. Ships moving between the two had to make a 12-kilometre (7.5 mi) detour, descending from the Mittelland Canal through the Rothensee boat lift into the Elbe, then sailing downstream on the river, before ascending up to the Elbe-Havel Canal through Niegripp lock. Low water levels in the Elbe often prevented fully laden canal barges from making this crossing, requiring time-consuming off-loading of cargo. History Canal engineers had first conceived of joining the two waterways as far back as 1

Amazing Bridges

WORLD'S AMAZING BRIDGE : The Atlantic Ocean Road is a 8.3-kilometre (5.2 mi) long part of County Road 64 which stretches an archipelago in Eide and Averøy in Møre og Romsdal, Norway. Located at the northern part of the coastal area of Hustadvika, it connects the villages of Kårvåg on Averøy with Vevang in Eide on the Romsdal peninsula on the mainland. The road is one alternative connecting the towns of Kristiansund and Molde, via the Atlantic Ocean Tunnel. The inland connection between those two cities is the Krifast bridge/tunnelsystem.                                                                                         Construction work on the Atlantic Ocean Road started on 1 August 1983, with the opening taking place on 7 July 1989. During this period there were no less than 12 hurricane-like storms in the area. The road is built on several small islands and skerries, and is spanned by eight bridges and several landfills/viaducts. This road has an open sea view wh
