Colour change: Blaze, a Labrador retriever from Finland, suddenly changed from black to white, and his owner couldn’t figure out why. She wondered why a small patch of fur on her pet’s ear suddenly turned white. Then, over the course of a year, much of Blaze’s fur changed from black to white. It turns out that Blaze has vitiligo, a condition that causes the pigment in fur to lose its colour. Blaze doesn’t seem to care. He is a loving, healthy dog that likes to play and go for walks. Thanks to his owner’s posts, he has become a social media sensation.
Bedsheet shirts: Two clothing designers from Archivist Studio in Berlin, Germany, found a unique way to reuse material that would have gone to the dump. Eugenie Haitsma and Johannes Offerhaus offered to take expensive hotel bedsheets that were headed for the garbage bin, due to minor flaws and tears. The designers realized that the Egyptian linen would be perfect for shirts, and the hotels were happy to get rid of it. With so much quality material to work with, the entrepreneurs soon came up with some styles, and they intend to add more to their portfolio in the future.
Brave stance: Elephants may be quite a lot larger than crowned cranes, but that didn't stop one of the birds from aggressively protecting its nest against a herd of the giant grazing mammals. The crane’s bravery was caught on camera in Kenya’s Maasai Mara National Reserve. As the elephant approached, the crane spread its colourful wings and squawked loudly while moving towards the mammal in a menacing manner. The adult moved away, and then the crane started badgering a baby elephant, which didn’t go over well with the adult. All was well in the end, as the elephants wandered off.
