Well, with Taiwanese teacher Chuan-Bin Chung you can forget about the textbooks – this man IS your textbook!

This stunning giraffe has not been photoshopped, she’s real! Omo, the 15-month-old beauty whose skin looks as if it was bleached, is suffering from leucism. It’s a condition that results in a partial loss of pigmentation.

She was spotted in Tarangire National Park in Tanzania by Dr Derek Lee, founder and scientist at the Wild Nature Institute. “Omo appears to get along with the other giraffes, she has always been seen with a large group of normally coloured giraffe – they don’t seem to mind her different colouring,” he explained.

“We and our partners are working on giraffe conservation and anti-poaching to help give Omo and her relatives a better chance of survival. We hope that she lives a long life and that some day she has calves of her own.”

“Omo is the only pale giraffe we are currently aware of,” said Dr Derek Lee

November 11 is Origami Day in Japan, where the paper crane has become a symbol of peace, but did you know that Origami isn’t an entirely Japanese invention?

Ancient Japanese origami used cut or marked paper, and was first mentioned in a poem from 1680. In Europe 100 years later, German pedagogue Friedrich Fröbel taught kindergarten children simple mathematical forms by folding whole pieces of paper. This system was imported to Japan after 1860, and is the basis for what we consider modern origami.
