Known as comb rats, these are native to Africa. Also, ears.
Also known as The Sunda flying lemur, it is not actually a lemur and does not fly. Instead, it glides as it leaps among trees. It is strictly arboreal, is active at night, and feeds on soft plant parts such as young leaves, shoots, flowers, and fruits. The Sunda Coluga can be found throughout Southeast Asia in Indonesia, Thailand, Malaysia, and Singapore
A suburban New York canine named Figo helped redefine the term "service dog" this week, when he reportedly jumped in front of a bus to save his owner from more serious injuries. His blind owner, 62-year-old Audrey Stone, had gone for a walk Monday morning with Figo when a bus came barreling down the street. Figo’s protective instincts kicked in and jumped in front of Stone to take the blow, witnesses said.
Stone suffered a fractured elbow and ankle, three broken ribs, and a cut to her head in the accident, while Figo suffered a deep cut to his right leg. Paul Schwartz, who witnessed the accident, said Figo tried desperately to be near his owner while paramedics attended to her.
"He sat with me the whole time. He was limping as we put him on a big blanket on the sidewalk and it started to rain. He let us wrap up his leg without any problem," "He wasn’t barking or crying or yelping. But he kept pulling toward her. After she was put on a gurney and taken away, he stopped doing that. He seemed a little lost after she left."
Stone is being treated in the hospital while Figo was taken to a local vet for surgery. Middlebranch Veterinary Hospital says the hero retriever is now "resting comfortably and doing extremely well."
