Green-Backed Tit in a Winter Morning by Sarthak Pattanaik

It was a winter morning and was very cold outside. I wanted to go outside to see some beautiful landscapes. I could hear the birds were singing songs, but due to cold and fever, I was not able to go. I was watching the outside view from my bedroom window when I noticed this little bird on a branch, quickly opened my bag and took this photo.

Chimpanzees Our Closest Relatives by Kirsten Bruening

In addition to the bonobos, chimpanzees are the closest relatives of humans – the genetic makeup of chimpanzees and humans is 98 percent. Chimpanzees also have a pronounced facial expression that is very similar to that of us humans. We were allowed to admire this adult animal in the “Cologne Zoo”. But where is the difference between ape and man?
Intelligence! Only humans are smart enough to build and use tools. In it scientists agreed for a long time. But then they watched as an orangutan on the Southeast Asian island of Borneo lingered motionless on the shore with a spear-like wooden stick. Suddenly he bumped into it. He hunted fish – and knew what he was doing.

Meerkats are biathlon cats, but are more akin to bears or hyenas. The typical attitude of a meerkat? On the hind legs, the eyes attentively directed into the distance. Meerkats are very social animals and also share the work. While some work on the construction, the others look out for possible dangers. We could watch these beautiful animals on a trip to the Cologne Zoo.
