This Month in Photo of the Day: Animals Twelve-year-old male lion brothers Tonyi, left, and Tombo lie with each other at Werribee Open Range Zoo, 30 kilometers (19 miles) west of Melbourne, Australia, in September 2008. Werribee Open Range Zoo occupies 225 hectares (556 acres) of land, which allows visitors in safari buses to get closer to animals. The photographs were taken by a camera in a hide and triggered remotely. This photo and caption were submitted to the 2008 International Photography Contest. See photo galleries and play jigsaw puzzles of images from more than 105,000 submissions.
