1A Seal Rides A Whale
Robyn Malcolm had been photographing a pod of whales feeding 500km (310 miles) south of Sydney. She only realized she had taken the unusual picture when she went through the photos later. Malcolm insists that the photo was not doctored.
"I'm positive, because I don't know how to use Photoshop. And I do still have it on the camera so I can prove it," she said.
Animal experts say that witnessing such a partnership is rare. (Source)

5A Weasel Riding A Woodpecker
Wildlife expert Lucy Cooke said, "The green woodpecker is a ground-feeding bird. Weasels normally attack rabbits. The woodpecker is not its usual prey. But weasels are fearless. A female weasel weighs less than a Mars Bar but is as ferocious as a lion, so this is why the woodpecker would have been able to take off with it on its back."
The woodpecker landed and managed to escape the weasel, which ran into the grass.
