A puma on an iceberg On Tuesday, July 20, 2021, tourists aboard a boat sailing on Lake Argentino, in Argentinian Patagonia, saw a puma that was installed on a drifting iceberg. Used to the extreme conditions of the region, pumas are excellent swimmers and sometimes swim from one shore to another. It was probably on the piece of ice before it came off. He was watched by members of the Glacier National Park but did not need to be taken care of. Lake Argentino is renowned for impressive glaciers plunging directly into its waters, such as the Perito Moreno Glacier and the Upsala Glacier.

Water beetle fights with a snake A 3cm giant water bug (Belostomatid, probably genus Lethocerus) stabbed its mouthpart into a 10cm garter snake (genus Thamnophis) I apparently startled into jumping incautiously into a rock pool, then hung on for dear life - and was rewarded with a real feast. I captured this video in the Rincon Mountains of Saguaro National Park in Arizona on September 14, 2013, just after midday.
Rescue a dog in a frozen lake Harlem-Roscoe firefighters were dispatched to a call on the Legends Lake in Roscoe for a man on the ice trying to rescue his dog that had fallen through thin ice into the lake on Dec. 11, 2017. It seems the dog's owner found his dog in the water and tried using a kayak on the ice to get to him. About half way out he broke through the ice himself and was now in the water. First in units arrived on scene and Lt. Justin Mayton donned a cold water suit and firefighters secured him to a safety rope. He then headed out onto the ice with a second Kayak that was on scene. He reached the owner of the dog and the dog's owner was able to climb into the kayak. Mayton was then able to reach the dog and he and the dog were pulled back to the shore by the firefighters on the shore. A rope was also then thrown to the owner in the Kayak and he was pulled safely to the shore. The dog and the owner were warmed up in the ambulance and taken home.
