A squeaky clean turtle, a freezing flamingo, two running rabbits, a playful tiger, a hardworking camel – plus many more images of animals large and small.
Hard to say goodbye
African elephants Bakbuki, left, and Noah, right, look out from their cages at the Ramat Gan Safari Park as they leave for a zoo in Hungary in Ramat Gan, Israel. The Safari Park needs to transfer the two males because they are rapidly approaching sexual maturity, and the park is trying to make sure their elephants do not mate within the family herd.
A young male giraffe, center, looks out from between his parents at the Six Flags Discovery Kingdom in Vallejo, Calif. The 145-pound, approximately 5-foot-10-inch tall male is the first offspring of 4-year-old female Makali, right, and the 6-year-old father Nyumekye, left. The newborn giraffe brings the total number of giraffe at the park to six, and the park has launched a naming contest for the calf.

Oscar the well-traveled dog relaxes in a plane on his way to Buenos Aires for the end of his around-the-world tour. Five years ago, Oscar was rescued from a South African kennel by owner J. Lefson. In May, the pair began an epic journey across five continents and 29 countries, hoping to inspire millions to help save canines living as strays on the streets.
A Himalayan langur rests on a tree in Dachigam National Park on the outskirts of Srinagar, India. The wildlife population in the Kashmir region has increased over the last two decades as fear of being caught in an exchange of fire between separatist militants and Indian troops kept poachers and hunters away.
