BRITAIN'S 'goat' talent

Darren, a waving goat, is a star already with tens of thousands seeing him on YouTube. Producers of the TV show "Britain's Got Talent" now want to sign him for next month's live auditions in Birmingham. The Anglo-Nubian goat, aged eight, mastered his talent after youngsters waved at him as they left his enclosure. But his owners at White Post Farm near Nottingham worry that further fame and uprooting him won't be good for his health.

Seals trapped in ice

More than 60 seals have been trapped in frozen water at Seal Bay in Yantai City, Shandong Province, as a result of the below zero temperatures of recent weeks.

The 2,000-square-meter Seal Bay is considered the largest sanctuary of its kind in China and workers have started frantically trying to break the ice to release the seals.

Squirrel steals a shot

This scene-stealing squirrel is maybe one of the most popular on American National Geographic magazine's Website. The photo was taken when Melissa Brandts and her husband were setting up a lakeside holiday self-portrait in Banff National Park, Canada. The squirrel popped up just as the camera's timer went off, stealing the show. He "became intrigued with the sound of the focusing camera," Mrs Brandts said. "We were laughing about this little guy for days!" she said.
