LightBox presents the fourth installment of recent news images that reveal the endless wonders of the animal kingdom.

Whether cute and cuddly, wild or exotic, animals hold a fascination among all humans. BBC wildlife documentaries and National Geographic stories come to mind when recalling great animal imagery, but animal magic is not only confined to natural wilderness. It also exists in a life of domesticity or captivity, meaning intriguing photography of our furry and feathered friends can be found on a daily basis.

Also on LightBox: The first and second and third installments of Animal Magic.
