A two-headed turtle at the National Museum in Kiev with two heads and six legs, and South Korea's Kim Seoyeong competing in the women's 200m individual medley during the British Gas Swimming Championships, snapped with an underwater camera.

A snow-covered house in Armentieres, northern France, after heavy snow-falls, which disturbed the traffic around Lille, and Indian Hindu worshippers pray as others throw coloured powder and water on them during Lathmar Holi at Nandagram Temple.

Finally, a young male Rothschild giraffe and its mother are presented at the zoo in the eastern German city of Leipzig.
