Frozen fish

As some of you may know, Europe is suffering through a terrible heatwave that has, according to the BBC, "claimed the lives of an estimated 40 people over last two weeks". And it isn't just the heat: "The high temperatures -- above 35C (95F) in some places -- have been accompanied by increased pollution and drought."

Thankfully, the situation isn't nearly as bad as it was in 2003, when a heatwave was responsible for around 15,000 deaths in France alone.

This resident of a zoo in western France (below) even gets to enjoy a mackerel-flavoured ice cube as he swims. (Good eats, I presume.) As we take a short break from all the killing in other parts of the world, it's our Photo of the Day.
