She looks like a demanding little girl That's better Total contentment Milk coma Baby Snow Leopard is Born BATTLE CREEK MI, July 2, 2008 –On June 16, 2008 Binder Park Zoo in Battle Creek, Michigan welcomed a 1 lb, 10 ½ inch baby female snow leopard cub. The new baby, now with her eyes open, is 15 days old, weighs almost 4lbs, and is 19 inches long from the top of her head to the tip of her tail. At birth, the baby cub spent approximately 2 hours with her mother (Lotus age 11), when she was removed for hand rearing by zoo staff. “We feel it’s very important to limit the amount of human contact that the new cub receives to lessen her imprinting on humans,” said Jenny Barnett Director of Wildlife Conservation at Binder Park Zoo.

47 unearthly lightning strikes [PICs] Lightning photography can capture milliseconds of the most powerful natural phenomena. Just be sure you’re at least 6 miles (or 30 seconds between flash and thunder) from the storm. IN THESE IMAGES, lightning appears close up, often seemingly just a few city blocks away. Don’t let the images fool you though — pro lightning photographers let the lenses do the work, or shoot from relative safety inside vehicles or under cover. As lightning strikes only last for an eyeblink, it’s also necessary to use long shutter times (up to 30 seconds or longer) or devices which can trigger the shutter when lightning is detected. Note then, that most of the images are not single instants in time, but composite images containing several individual lightning strikes over a given period. The odds of actually being struck by lightning in the US over one’s lifetime are surprisingly high: 1 in 10,000. San Tan Mountains, AZ Satellite imagery shows that only a quarter of all lightning actually strikes the ground.
