Alexander Semenov has a wonderful talent for capturing the beauty and grace of tiny sea creatures -- like this magical, alien-like Coryphella polaris.
We also have news on the battle for human rights for elephants, wildlife rehab rescuers dressing up as bobcats to save abandoned kittens, a penguin that took a really big wrong turn, an extinct mountain lion found in a residential area, and more in the Week in Animal News.
