“Sita” the tiger dives for food in the new Tiger Island Pool at Dreamworld New “Tiger Island Pool” opens at Dreamworld, Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia on October 11, 2016. Forget singing for your supper, Sita swims for it instead. Gold Coast's Dreamworld has just opened a $7 million revamp of Tiger Island and 17-year-old Sita has taken to her new pool like a duck, er, tiger, to water. While many big cats enjoy a splash on a hot day, Sita is a virtual water baby, diving to the bottom of the pool to retrieve snacks of chicken meat.

Meet the world's smoothest cuddliest hedgehog. Names after brave hero, but Nelson is completely

Meet the world's smoothest cuddliest hedgehog. Names after brave hero, but Nelson is completely bald so when curled up he looks like an egg. Doesn't have a single prickle or strand of hair. Thought to be suffering a stress related alopecia following a trauma in the wild. Volunteers have been massaging him for half an hour a day for the last year to encourage spikes to grow. Now given up but he still gets daily massages because he enjoys them so much and to keep his cuddle skin soft and smooth. Unlike his namesake Nelson could not defend himself so will live out his days at the Foxy Lodge Wildlife Rescue in Hemsby, England. (Photo by Jeremy Durkin)

Staff suspect he must have been fully covered up until shortly before he was found to have survived

Staff suspect he must have been fully covered up until shortly before he was found to have survived into adulthood. They have no idea why Nelson's hair or prickles will not grow and suspect he may have suffered a trauma or stress in the wild that triggered the alopecia. Center manager Tonia Garner, 52, said: “We've had hundreds of hedgehogs but we have never seen anything like Nelson before”. (Photo by Jeremy Durkin)

Tonia said: “He absolutely loves his massages. He'd be there all day if he could”. And the good life will continue for Nelson because without prickles to defend himself he is too vulnerable to return to the wild as originally hoped. “He just wouldn't survive. He might be named after Norfolk's bravest hero but I'm afraid this little Nelson wouldn't last five minutes without any form of defence against predators”. (Photo by Jeremy Durkin)

“He looks like a big egg”. He might be completely spineless, but according to Tonia he's full of attitude and prefers certain volunteers to perform his massage and dish up his mealworm and boiled eggs. She said: “He squeals like a little piglet if he doesn't get whom he. Nelson has his favourites and he knows how to get his own way but that's not hard because we all love him. Hedgehogs are not known for being cuddly but this one certainly is. He loves affection”. (Photo by Jeremy Durkin)
