Sheeps graze under carob trees at Anogyra, a community north of the city of Limassol in Cyprus
Sheeps graze under carob trees at Anogyra, a community north of the city of Limassol in Cyprus, May 5, 2015. Barn owls and black snakes are being enlisted in Cyprus to protect carob trees, known on the Mediterranean island since antiquity and once a flourishing export but now threatened by urbanization and rats. Since April, conservationists at centuries-old groves near the island's southern coast have been laying barn-owl nests and planning reptile nests, primarily for the non-poisonous black snake. They want to swap poison for natural predators to keep rat populations in check and prevent damage to the trees. Picture taken May 5, 2015.

The venomous Egyptian cobra that slithered its way to fame by escaping its enclosure at New York's Bronx Zoo for a week before being recaptured has been given a name -- Mia, as in "missing in action."
