A red fox checks a pizza box on a promenade in the southern Israeli city of Ashkelon, April 17, 2020. Red foxes have been making appearances in Ashkelon, drawn out from the seclusion of the desert dunes by the coronavirus lockdown that has kept people off the streets. The animals, usually a rare sight in busy urban areas, have a biblical resonance. In the Book of Lamentations, the Jewish temple site in Jerusalem is described as so desolate that "foxes prowl upon it." In the Mediterranean seaport, a family of foxes has become a regular feature - nosing through discarded food, and playing sometimes unfriendly hide-and-seek with dogs in a local park.

A puma climbs a wall at dawn in a neighbourhood before being captured and taken to a zoo, in Santiago, Chile March 24, 2020. Chilean authorities captured at least three cougars during lockdown. Marcelo Giagnoni, regional director of Chile's Agriculture and Livestock Service (SAG), said severe drought in the dusty foothills around Santiago had likely already brought the cats, desperate for food, to the city's door step. The now barren streets were enough to entice the nearby cats to enter the city, he said.

Wild boars roam next to a residential building in Haifa, northern Israel April 16, 2020. Wild boars, some as bulky as Rottweilers and traveling in family packs, have been trotting through Haifa in increasing numbers. Their once-nocturnal visitations now take place throughout the day, as they root through refuse, spook domestic pets and even block roads.

Newly hatched babies leatherback sea turtles make their way into the sea for the first time at a beach in Phanga Nga district, Thailand, March 27, 2020. Thailand has found the largest number of leatherback nests in two decades on beaches bereft of tourists, environmentalists say. The 11 turtle nests authorities have found since last November were the highest number in 20 years, said Kongkiat Kittiwatanawong, the director of the Phuket Marine Biological Center. "This is a very good sign for us because many areas for spawning have been destroyed by humans," he told Reuters. No such nests had been found for the previous five years.
