Israeli specialists are easing the suffering of a two-ton rhinoceros with a chronic eye infection by creating a "no-fly zone" using a custom mask.
Neta Gueta of the Zoological Center of Tel Aviv-Ramat Gan helped design the mask that stops flies from laying eggs in the eye of the rhino named Tanda. Gueta said Tanda sometimes grew so frustrated with the infection and she rubbed her eye on rough tree bark, only exacerbating the problem.

Each weighs more than 5 kilograms (11 lbs.), up from just over 100 grams (3½ oz.) at birth. They started teething at around 80 days old and have two small teeth each.
The cubs were born on July 29 within four hours, the female cub first and then her brothers.

They may go bump in the night, but bats are not as terrifying as horror movies and scary stories make them out to be. In the light, they're actually pretty darn cute.
Staff of the Tolga Bat Hospital in Atherton, Australia, know all about this cuddly side. They dedicate their lives to caring for and raising abandoned bat pups. Every year, over 300 baby bats are left to fend for themselves after their mothers die of starvation or illness, reports The Daily Mail.
