Animal Photos Of The Week

This week had a wide range of animal news.

An adorable panda celebrated its birthday and some sloths peaked in cuteness. The secret lives of animals were also revealed through hidden cameras as part of a conservation project.

But we also heard some negative stories about animals, including a monkey in Missouri who lashed out at a girl in a parking lot.

Sharks also made the news this week. A man in North Carolina needed 120 stitches after getting bitten by a shark and Russian officials warned that shark attacks are on the rise along Russia's Pacific coast.

Some of this week's animals, like the lions and the tiger, may not be so cuddly, but be sure to check out the baby gorilla and the baby cheetahs.
