New Playful Underwater Puppy Photo Series By Seth Casteel

Seth Casteel, the New York- and L.A.-based photographer who became internet-famous with his infectiously happy diving dog photo series, has taken things to the next level. His new “Underwater Puppies” photo series, which will be published as a book on September 16th, captures adorable puppies as they dive into a pool.

There’s no doubt that taking this photo series must have been heaps of fun, but it wasn’t all fun and games. “To create this series, I taught swimming lessons to over 1500 puppies, building their confidence in the water and helping them develop safety and survival skills,” says Casteel. “Most of the puppies only swam for a few minutes and were not ready for pictures, but some decided to start jumping in on their own and chase after toys!

Patrick the Oldest Living Wombat Celebrates His 29th Birthday

On August 24th, Patrick the Australian common wombat celebrated his 29th birthday. While that might not sound that old, this occasion means that the adorable marsupial is the oldest living wombat in the world. Patrick has been at the Ballarat Wildlife Park in Victoria since 1986 and garnered much attention since that time.

A wombat’s life expectancy is between 15 and 20 years old. In the wild, they fall prey to predators, bushfires, or end up as roadkill, but in captivity they generally live longer. The oldest wombat ever recorded was 34-years-old, so Patrick has six more years until he breaks the world record.

Patrick was found as a baby on the roadside after his mother was killed by a car. Ballarat’s managing director, Greg Parker, remembers it clearly, stating, “He was a rascal then. Once he was in the car and climbed over to the driver’s side, putting the car in gear and drove it through the neighbor’s fence.” The park staff tried to release Patrick back into the wild on several occasions, but he was always attacked by other wombats and brought back to the park for his own safety. Since then, the lovable creature has delighted park guests and the visitors to his newly-created Facebook page.
