Climb for salt: A mountain goat that lives in the European Alps is called the Alpine Ibex. These amazing animals can climb exceptionally steep inclines because their special hooves allow them to grip. They even climb up to the top of very high and extremely steep dams. For example, they've been seen climbing dams in Italy, including the Cingino Dam in the Piedmont region and the Barbellino Dam in Lombardy. The reason these goats are driven to scamper up these structures is because the cement at the top contains salt, which is important to their diet.
Tall forest: In downtown Milan, Italy, two apartment buildings tower over the neighborhood. Called Bosco Verticale, they are a rare site. One stands 80 metres high and the other stands 112 metres high. Both are completely covered in vegetation, including 800 trees, 15,000 perennials, and 5,000 shrubs. This vertical forest was designed with a purpose to regulate temperature and humidity in the buildings, while attracting birds and butterflies. Residents feel like they live in a rural area, instead of in the middle of a big city. The vegetation is carefully pruned each year, and watering is done automatically.
Wrinkled fender: Driving a new car off the lot is exciting. Most people scrimp and save if they plan to buy a brand new vehicle from a dealership. That was probably the case for a man in India as he drove his car out of the lot, looking forward to showing it off. Unfortunately, he seemed to know more about accelerators than about breaks because he drove the white, four-door Kia Carnival right into a wall. The lack of driving finesse caused the airbags to deploy and the front end to buckle. The only good thing about the situation is that no one was hurt.
Big gator: Those who enjoy the sport of golf in the state of Florida (U.S.), know that spotting alligators on the fairways is not unusual. The reptiles are common in that state, and everyone knows to stay clear of them if they pop up from a pond to lie in the sun. However, onlookers were quite startled when an outrageously large specimen appeared on the Valencia Golf and Country Club in Naples. It looked like it belonged in a movie about prehistoric creatures! Footage of the beast was taken by Tyler Stolting, a golf pro at the club.
