    Canada Two spectacular 9ft polar bears wrestle in the snow 12/18/2014 Joyce Ferder/Solent News/SIPA Two spectacular 9ft polar bears wrestle in the snow - but don't worry, they're only playing. Weighing around a staggering 75 stone, the males were play fighting which helps them train for any future threats from enemy bears. They swing their huge paws at one another, bite each other, push and shove and even hold the other's head down in the snow just to try and get the better of them. After an hour of play fighting, they walked off into the sun together. Photographer Joyce Ferder was just metres away from the bears spectacular fight at Hudson Bay in Manitoba, Canada.

By the time he had reached the ninth, the 65-year-old had burst into tears. "I just wasn't expecting to be told so much of my body had gone," she says. "The list of organs that had been removed was so long that I actually lost count. I just could not fathom how I could still be alive when so much of me was missing." The 13-hour operation, carried out by a team of six leading UK surgeons, is known in medical circles as the Mother Of All Surgeries and with good reason. It is one of the most invasive operations performed in Britain and the only way to treat a rare cancer of the appendix, otherwise known as pseudomyxoma peritonei (PMP) which quickly spreads around the abdominal cavity meaning diagnosis usually comes with a death sentence. /Rex_mother_of_all_surgeries_4308161D//1412171329

Proud owner Mary Buchanan, 27, a college student from Spartanburg, South Carolina, adopted him from a neighbour when he was five months old. She explains: "He was born with one cross eye, but he's never had problems walking or anything. He's never run into things, or wobbled. He can see perfectly fine. He has been checked out by a vet, and no surgery is needed to correct his sight." Mary soon found that her pet wasn't adverse to dressing up in quirky costumes - but only when he is in the right mood. "Spangles loves his costumes.

World's first crowdfunded drinking jacket - Dec 2014 FULL COPY: http://www.rexfeatures.com/nanolink/pr7c Forget a dinner jacket or LBD - this could be the only garment you need for your boozy Christmas party. A drinking enthusiast has invented the world's first crowdfunded jacket for those who fancy a serious tipple. Zane Lamprey, host of several traveling-drinking shows, wanted to create an item of clothing that "the Swiss Army would likely wear, while drinking". The result is a "nice hoodie" that comes packed with gadgets and aids to getting tipsy on a night out. Incorporated into the $85 'Drinking Jacket' is a bottle-opener zipper, a neoprene-lined drink cooler pocket, drinking mitts, a hidden flask pocket, which holds the optional metal-detector-proof flask, and a sunglasses holder. Amazingly, the idea has been a massive hit on crowdfunding website Kickstarter: $233,560 has been pledged of a $50,000 goal. /Rex_Worlds_first_crowdfunded_drinking_jacket_Dec_4301914D/MUST CREDIT: Rex Features.

This photo shows the same group of King Penguins who encountered a seal on their journey on Fortuna Bay, South Georgia Island. WORDS BY SIMON HAMALIENKO/ GUZELIAN An American photographer has braved artic conditions in order to capture stunning photos of thousands of penguins who are inhabit an island in the continent of Antarctic. Mike Johnson, 68, from Estero, Florida, joined other photographers on an expedition onboard the Polar Pioneer voyage to South Georgia Island. The photographs from his trip capture the beautiful landscapes of the island and the incredible amount of penguins huddled together across the lands. South Georgia Island is administered by the United Kingdom as part of South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands. Despite the wide range and vast numbers of birds and marine life, combined with beautiful scenery, the remote location and lack of access makes the island quite a rare destination for tourists. /GUZELIAN_121601/Credit:Mike Johnson/Guzelian/SIPA/1412161230

This photo shows the same group of King Penguins who encountered a seal on their journey on Fortuna Bay, South Georgia Island. WORDS BY SIMON HAMALIENKO/ GUZELIAN An American photographer has braved artic conditions in order to capture stunning photos of thousands of penguins who are inhabit an island in the continent of Antarctic. Mike Johnson, 68, from Estero, Florida, joined other photographers on an expedition onboard the Polar Pioneer voyage to South Georgia Island. The photographs from his trip capture the beautiful landscapes of the island and the incredible amount of penguins huddled together across the lands. South Georgia Island is administered by the United Kingdom as part of South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands. Despite the wide range and vast numbers of birds and marine life, combined with beautiful scenery, the remote location and lack of access makes the island quite a rare destination for tourists. /GUZELIAN_121601/Credit:Mike Johnson/Guzelian/SIPA/1412161230

    Whale Shark set free 12/12/2014 SIMON PIERCE/CATERS/SIPA PIC BY SIMON PIERCE/ CATERS NEWS - (PICTURED: One of the fishermen letting the Whale Shark free) - This is the incredible moment two WHALE SHARKS trapped inside a fishing net were set free. The amazing images show divers Chris Rohner and Clare Prebble helping free the tangled pair - which then swim alongside them to say thanks. Marine biologist Simon Pierce captured the release after approaching fisherman off Mafia Island, Tanzania, who were preparing for the rescue. There were two sharks in the net - one 8m long adult and a smaller 5m fish - throughout the dive which took place in November. Simon, from New Zealand, said: The main conservation challenge there is conflict between fishermen and sharks. SEE CATERS COPY./CATERSNEWSAGENCY_1754.01/Credit:SIMON PIERCE/CATERS/SIPA/1412121800

    Bear sitting at the top of the tree, Norway 12/12/2014 Jorgen Tharaldsen/Solent /SIPA This bear picked a daring place for a slumber as she balanced precariously on a tiny branch - 50ft in the air. The brave four-year-old Brown bear climbed almost to the top the huge tree just so she could doze and enjoy the stunning forest views that surround her. She cleverly distributed her weight by placing two paws on one thin branch underneath her and grabbed another in front of her. She relaxed for hours up the tree to take in the beautiful views in Fla, Norway. Jorgen Tharaldsen, a 41-year-old game designer from Oslo, Norway, was lucky enough to see the bear sitting at the top of the tree. SEE OUR COPY FOR MORE DETAILS.

Weather experts say 2014 could break the record for the least air frosts for more than 50 years. This year has been particularly mild and there have only been 16.6 days of frost for the UK between January and October. The previous record low was 33.8 days in 2002, so we would only need less than 17.2 days of frost in November and December to beat this, according to the Met Office. Frost records which date back to 1961 show the second lowest frost year was 1990 with 34.4 days, followed by 2007 with 36.9 frost days. The highest frost year was 2010 with 89.5 frost days, followed by 1979 with 86.6 frost days. /Rex_Frost_covering_The_Fens_at_sunrise_Cambridgeshi_4288813H//1412091726

NASA?s Solar Dynamics Observatory, which watches the sun constantly, captured an image of the event. Solar flares are powerful bursts of radiation. Harmful radiation from a flare cannot pass through Earth's atmosphere to physically affect humans on the ground, however -- when intense enough -- they can disturb the atmosphere in the layer where GPS and communications signals travel. To see how this event may affect Earth, please visit NOAA's Space Weather Prediction Center at http://spaceweather.gov, the U.S. government's official source for space weather forecasts, alerts, watches and warnings. This flare is classified as an M6.1-class flare. M-class flares are a tenth the size of the most intense flares, the X-class flares. The number provides more information about its strength. An M2 is twice as intense as an M1, an M3 is three times as intense, etc. /Rex_Sun_emits_a_midlevel_flare_4275516B//1412051107

    Horse Tattoos turn Equine Beauties into Real My Little Pony's... 12/04/2014 CB2/ZOB/WENN.COM/SIPA We've all heard the expression “Horses for Courses” and it may well be that these equine tattoos from Glamouratti are not for everyone! But for the horse that likes to stand out from the crowd these temporary etchings are proving a real hit! Created by mother of two Sally Rees, a former beauty spa director, the temporary tattoos can last from a day to two weeks, depending on the glue used to apply them. The glue doesn't touch the horse's skin so vets say it's safe to use and the tattoos can be washed off with soap, water and a brush. Sally came up with the idea for the sparkly marks while looking for a way to generate extra income after becoming a mother-of-two. She explains: 'I had been dabbling with different ideas to bring a bit more money in when I came across someone doing glitter tattoos at a craft fair. 'My daughter fell in love with them straight away and so I started doing them at children's parties. 'About a year ago my in-laws from Ireland were visiting and knowing they have horses I just said: "I don't know why no-one has made these for horses". 'It was a lightbulb moment for me - the more I thought about it the more it seemed like a good idea. 'I started to look into it and realised there was a real gap in the market.' A year after her eureka moment Sally has turned her idea into a fully-fledged business.

Each year pensioner Eric Marshall's home is transformed thanks to his annual enormous Christmas lights display. As the festive season rolls round the 75-year-old festoons his home in Bagby, North Yorkshire with a seemingly endless supply of coloured lights, glowing Santas and illuminated reindeer. He spends three weeks each year setting up the display, which runs throughout December to the 12th night, on the walls, roof and garden of his bungalow. As well as brightening up the neighbourhood the glittering display also raises funds for Bagby church. According to Eric he started off with just a few lights and, after getting compliments, decided to go bigger and better the following year. 20 years later and his display has now reached epic proportions and raised around GBP 15,000 as it draws visitors from far and wide. Though he buys lights in the January sales to cut costs Eric admits that his electricity bill is quite something to behold. /Rex_Christmas_light_display_4275084H//1412041245

Paul, a guide for Exodus Travels, has been tracking cheetahs for twenty years. He explains: "I have spent more time with cheetahs than any other animal. "Being daytime hunters they are marvellous subjects, particularly early and late. Whether it is a mother with cubs, a coalition of males or a single hunting female, they fascinate me and it is why I have spent so many months in their company. "However, because they are day-time animals (they are nothing like robust enough to compete with lions, leopards and hyenas at night) they are very conspicuous and hunting and ?child care? becomes very challenging." Paul's new book ?Predator? is out this week (www.edigroup-publishing.com). /Rex_Paul_Goldsteins_World_Cheetah_Day_photography_4273090T/MANDATORY CREDIT: Paul Goldstein/Exodus/Rex Features/1412040728

Consent Required for Commercial Use and Book Publications Mandatory Credit: Photo by Adam Head/Newspix/REX (4271531e) Sugar glider joey Orphan sugar glider babies being raised at Currumbin Wildlife Hospital, Queensland, Australia - 25 Nov 2014 These tiny little sugar gliders are lucky to be alive after surviving a cat attack that killed their mother. Somehow the youngsters, who were just a few days old at the time, and the size of jellybeans, survived and were rushed to the Currumbin Wildlife Hospital in Queensland, Australia. Here they have received round-the-clock care and are now several months old. However, the miniscule orphans still have a lot of growing to do and will remain at the hospital for another three months before being released into the wild. At the moment they weigh just 12 grams - about a fifth of the weight of a Mars bar - but will weigh around 230 grams as adults. According to chief vet Dr Michael Pyne the plight of the young joeys is sadly not an unusual one. "These guys [sugar gliders] are nocturnal and cats tend to get at them a bit because the night is when they do their hunting. "In this case a cat has killed the mother and fortunately the people who found them were smart enough to look in the pouch and find the joeys." /Rex_Sugar_gliders_4271531E/Editorial Use Only.
