This adorable baby squirrel was picked up from a sidewalk in Washington D.C. with a broken ankle, chipped tooth and bloody nose. Luckily, a concerned passer-by picked it up and took it to City Wildlife, where vets gave it a leg brace.

This is the colourful candy-striped land snail (Liguus virgineus), and it’s only found on Haiti, Dominican Republic and Cuba. For years its colourful shell made a popular souvenir for travellers visiting these Caribbean islands, but now a law forbids people from harvesting the shells and selling them.

Postmortem corneal clouding with tache noire. If the eyes remain open after death, the areas of the sclera exposed to the air dry out, which results in a first yellowish, then brownish-blackish band like discoloration zone called tache noire. It is most commonly seen after 7-8 hours after death

The mineral heliotrope, also known as bloodstone, is a form of chalcedony. The “classic” bloodstone is green chalcedony with red inclusions of iron oxide or red jasper. Sometimes the inclusions are yellow, in which case the mineral is given the name plasma. The red inclusions are supposed to resemble spots of blood; hence the name “bloodstone”.
