Three adorable dingo puppies have shown off their unique personalities in a new video welcoming them to an Australian Wildlife center.

 Archie, the first male alpine dingo at Australia wildlife center, has a soft creamy white coat and has been described as the most independent of the three. The smallest of the three, Eve, has been described as ‘little miss confidence,’ and is ready to explore every inch of her new home.

The three little dingo puppies, have been named after renowned indigenous Australian’s, Archie Roach, Gubbi-Gubbi elder Eve Fessel and Painter Albert Namatjira.

Wildlife including wolves, elk and wild boar are thriving around Chernobyl since the area was deserted by humans after the world's worst nuclear accident, a study shows.

 Around 116,000 people were permanently evacuated from the 1,600 square miles (4,200 sq km) exclusion zone around the power plant, with villages and towns left to go to ruin.

Using helicopter surveys, researchers in Belarus found that elk, roe deer, red deer and wild boar populations within the exclusion zone are similar to those in four uncontaminated nature reserves in the region, while wolf numbers are seven times higher.

Lynx have returned to the area, having previously been absent, while wild boar are taking advantage of abandoned farm buildings and orchards for shelter and food.

The study found said while the extremely high dose rates of radiation in the immediate aftermath of the accident significantly hit animal health and reproduction, they recovered quickly and there was no evidence of long term effects on mammal populations.

Frolicking in the autumn leaves, this little lion cub is having the time of her life as she excitedly plays

Tiny cub Karis proved she's not too dissimilar to human children as she threw herself into the pile of golden leaves carefully collected by her wildlife park keepers, even ending up with a pile on her head.

Karis was born on September 10 to Teekay and father Dudley, joining her older sister Libby who was born two years ago.The cub will grow to around 150kg and brings the Blair Drummond pride to eight lions in total.

'She's doing absolutely great,' said Mr Gilmour. 'She is growing fast, and she has quite a wee temper on her. 'She's just starting to eat meat now.'

Adorable orphaned possum clings to a kangaroo toy 'like it's her mum' after being found dehydrated on the side of a road

An adorable orphaned Brushtail Possum joey is getting much needed care and attention after being found alone and dehydrated on the side of a residential road.

Bettina, the female joey, was found on the side of a residential road in Mosman, on Sydney's lower north shore and taken to Taronga Wildlife Hospital to receive emergency first aid in early September.

Since her arrival, the joey has made a good recovery according to her round-the-clock carer and surrogate mother, Wildlife Hospital vet nurse Felicity Evans.

Ms Evans said that at her age possums would still be with her mother and that the soft toy gives her something to snuggle with for comfort.

'It's not as fluffy and woolly as an adult Brushtail Possum, but she clings to it using her claws and teeth as she would do with mum in the wild,' said Ms Evans.



The Most Radioactive Man on Earth Has the Kindest Heart

According to the BBC, 55-year-old Naoto Matsumura is the last person living in Tomioka, the ghost town at the heart of the Fukushima disaster in Japan.

Tomioka was abandoned when the leak happened, people leaving the 12.5 mile exclusion zone in such a rush that they left their doors open and their animals behind.

As Naoto waits for his community to come back to life, he takes care of the town’s animal survivors and lives by candelight. Known as the “guardian of Fukushima’s animals” he feeds and checks in on cows, pigs, dogs, cats and more.

Though he eats food from outside the zone, by staying with Tomioka’s animals, Naoto is no doubt exposed to radiation daily. Scroll through to see his big-hearted work in action.
