[T]he largest owls in the world, are now breeding in the wild in Britain, according to a new study. [T]hey escaped from a large pool of birds kept in captivity. With its prominent ear tufts, 6ft wingspan and its ability to kill birds as large as herons and animals as big as roe deer, the eagle owl is one of the most remarkable birds in Europe, nesting from Spain in the south to Russia in the north, but has always been absent from Britain.

Toucans, which live between 10-15 years, live in the wild in the tropical rainforests from the Guianas through Brazil to northern Argentina and are fruit eaters. REUTERS/Victor Fraile
The Lion-tailed Macaque (Macaca silenus) is one of the world's rarest and most endangered primates. These handsome monkeys spend most of their time high up in the trees. There are only around 2500 remaining in the wild in SW India. They only get to be around 15-33 lbs, so they're known as one of the smaller species of macaques. The Lion-tailed Macaque is defined by its large, silver mane that surrounds its black face and its tail that ends in a black tuft, similar to a lion's.
