Interspecies love

A squirrel appears to give a toy dinosaur a kiss. The squirrel eyed up the plastic prehistoric toy on a garden table before moving in to give it a hug. It then leant over to plant a kiss on its mouth - all the while cradling the T-Rex's head. But the inter-species romantic attraction has a simple explanation. Photographer Elliott C Nathan had placed a seed in the dinosaur's mouth. He explains: "I took these photos in my yard in Boulder, Colorado. I spent about half an hour getting the squirrel to trust me with seeds then I started putting them onto things. He was careful about the dinosaur at first, but finally his hunger got the best of him and he went in for the kiss." Picture: Elliott C Nathan/Rex Features
