One of the most fascinating curiosities about animals concerns the following question: are there species that can survive in space?
Apparently, the question is answered in the affirmative. This species does exist and it would be the tardigrades. Very special animals of their kind, with such unique characteristics that they are, at least as far as we know so far, the only species that can survive the extreme conditions in space.
Tardigrades are in fact very hardy and are able to withstand very harsh environments with extreme temperatures.

There are many breeds of dogs in the world, each with their own characteristics that make them unique. Among the characteristics that can influence the choice of a dog is also their size, which is sometimes truly immense!
Many people love large dogs, which, however, due to their size, require special care and attention and obviously require a lot of space to stay fit.
Although dogs can be very tall, this does not mean that they necessarily have to be massive: some breeds are tall, slender and long-limbed, while others are inevitably robust and more imposing. Here are 10 of the world's largest dog breeds.

In the United States of America, an extraordinary event occurred recently that attracted attention and made many nature lovers from all over the world happy.
A white bison was born in Bear River State Park, an extremely rare animal estimated to be present in one in ten million births, as reported by 'The Guardian'.
This calf is considered the most sacred living being on Earth for some tribes. Despite its low weight, the calf has shown astonishing health.
The birth of this white bison is big news that has generated enormous interest and led to a significant increase in the number of visitors to the park, eager to admire this unique rarity up close.
As in the rest of the southern hemisphere, winter is slowly arriving in Australia. The cold, snow and frost also arrived in Sydney, one of the continent's most important cities, where one of the country's largest zoos is located.
Snow therefore fell abundantly on the Sydney Zoo, and the animals celebrated the change of season with a bit of play in the snow and plenty of snacks from the park's staff.
Kangaroos, rodents and other animals enjoyed a beautiful day surrounded by everyone's attention, which was certainly good for the harmony of the animals themselves but also for the zoo workers and visitors.

Summer finally arrives and we begin to feel the first heat. The muggy, prickly sun arrives with its ferocity, and it is not only humans who feel the heat, but also pets, with dogs and cats at the forefront.
Many owners think that they are doing their pets a favour when they take them to have their fur sheared, but in reality this is something that, for a number of specific reasons, should not be done, or rather, should only be done in certain special circumstances.
In fact, dogs and cats do not regulate temperature as we do, and their fur serves precisely to ensure temperature control within the body.
An albino anteater was recently discovered in Mato Grosso do Sul, one of Brazil's federal states in South America. With pale fur and reddish eyes, the scientists who are studying him have given him the name Alvin.
According to the researchers, it is the only albino anteater known on the planet to date and its existence may help explain how deforestation in the Cerrado affects the species.
Discovered on a private farm, the specimen was eight months old, and the mother who was with him was a normal, non-albino specimen. The giant anteater, a mammal that is considered one of the symbols of the biome's marvellous fauna, is at risk of extinction due to hunting and the continuous destruction of South America's vegetation.

An incredible story comes from Rome, where a snapping turtle (Chelydra serpentina) was found in a private garden in Capena, a municipality on the outskirts of the capital.
It is an animal classified as dangerous to public health and safety, and in fact it is not possible for a private individual to keep one at home. Its bite is in fact very dangerous, the authorities warn, even capable of detaching fingers.
Now, it is thought that this animal is breeding on the outskirts of Rome, creating havoc among the authorities involved in managing the matter. The snapping turtle can indeed be very unpredictable and dangerous, especially if it comes into contact with children who have no idea how to approach it.
