Some 80 pieces of plastic rubbish weighing 17lb (8kg) were found in the stomach of a whale that died in Thailand on Sunday after a five-day effort to save it.
Environmental officials tried to save the whale but were unsuccessful. Before its death, the whale spat out five plastic bags. At least 300 marine animals perish each year in Thai waters after ingesting plastic.
These two giant tortoises might have been trying to have some 'alone time' but the ridiculous sounds they were making attracted a LOT of attention.
In fact the mating animals found themselves surrounded by a mass of amused onlookers when they were caught in the throes of passion - with one who captured their intimate moment on her mobile phone unable to stop laughing.
Savannah Boan - a crocodilian enrichment coordinator who spends her days caring for alligators and cros at Gatorland in Florida - captured their private moment on May 8 for Gatorland Vlogs.
Even though it was something Savannah had seen before, it still made her and everyone around her burst into laughing.
