27 turtles are back home in the wild, warmed up after they were shell-shocked by Florida's cold snap. Workers with "the turtle hospital" released the green sea turtles into the Florida Keys. The turtles were "stunned" during the sunshine state's cold weather earlier this month and basically needed to warm up and eat.

And a Melbourne zoo witnessed the first birth of a baby elephant, in its 147 year history. After a 22-month pregnancy, a female Asian elephant gave birth to the calf over the weekend. The baby girl is about 200 pounds, and was conceived through artifical insemination. She has yet to be named.
