KILLER WHALE FAMILY GATHERS AROUND ORCA CAUGHT IN FISHERMAN’S NET


 Powered by Max Banner Ads 

A young killer whale is trapped in a fisherman’s net. A pod of distressed whales cries out frantically as the youngster struggles to get free. Sightseers aboard a whale-watching boat that arrives to help are stunned at what they see.

“It’s a very rare thing,” said Nicole Mackay, co-owner of Port McNeill-based Mackay Whale Watching. “I never want to see it again.”

While she was out on on the water with customers near Port Hardy Thursday morning, a fisherman radioed Comox coast guard asking for help because a whale had become entangled in his net.

The captain of Mackay’s boat realized they were very close to the fisherman’s location, and they went to assist. They didn’t know what to expect, but something they had heard just minutes earlier gave a clue.

“We had the hydrophone underwater and they were sounding very frantic — their calls weren’t their typical calls,” Mackay said.

The fisherman, whom Mackay described as elderly, knew his nets and was working as quickly as he could to free the young whale.When they arrived a few minutes later, they saw that a young orca had become caught up in a fisherman’s net off the side of his boat, and the pod was in a panic. Several members huddled nearby and a number were “spyhopping,” bobbing their heads out of the water, which orcas sometimes do to get a better look at boats.

“Watching all this happen was really quite terrifying, especially when the young one went under for about 12 minutes, because typically they hold their breath for about five.” she said.

At that point, the watchers weren’t sure the orca, which Mackay identified as seven-year-old I103, was still alive. What made matters worse was that the other family members, which Mackay had pinpointed as pod I15, went underwater to stay with the young orca.

It was still breathing.The fisherman, who had let out his net, deftly reeled it back in to draw the young killer whale back up to the surface, Mackay said.

“It was a huge relief,” Mackay said.

In the end, the fisherman cut through part of his net and freed the whale.

Researchers who were in the area arrived and kept an eye on on the whale for several hours to make sure it was OK. It appeared to be fine and swam off with the pod.

SMALLEST SNAKE IN THE WORLD

A viewer on my Youtube Channel who goes by the name Big Mac wants to know what the smallest snake in the world is. BillsChannel research associate Filip Lax looked into to this question and came back with the barbados threadsnake.
The average length of adults is approximately 10 cm, (4 inches).


The Barbados threadsnake is a species of blind threadsnake. It is the smallest snake species currently known to exist. The only place it is known to exist is on the Island of Barbados.

The snake was first described and identified as a separate species in 2008 by S. Blair Hedges, a biologist from Pennsylvania State University. Hedges is said to have named the new species of snake in honor of his wife, Carla Ann Hass. That is a bit of a mystery to me since the name of the snake does not include a single part of his wife’s name. Perhaps he named it after his wife’s bikini?

FISHERMAN ATTACKED AND KILLED BY ALBINO CROCODILE

An Australian Fisherman was attacked and killed by the crocodile in front of his wife while they were fishing at the Adelaide River, about 60km east of Darwin, on Monday afternoon.

The 57 year old fisherman was grabbed by the Croc when he got out of his boat to unsnag his fishing line.

Police and rangers scouring the crocodile-infested river by boat on Monday night shot and killed a 4.5m crocodile and the man’s body was recovered later that night.

His wife was treated by paramedics at the scene for shock.

The Adelaide River is well known for its Jumping Croc tours, where boats travel the river and crocodiles jump for meat attached to hooks.

“Michael Jackson was one in a million, and unfortunately being an albino would have been picked on by all the others, its a big pecking order,” said Rob Marchand, owner of Wallaroo Tours, which runs Jumping Croc cruises across the river from where the man was taken.

He told the ABC on Tuesday that the crocodile had been in that part of the river for several years, and that the crocodiles had been fighting a lot recently, jockeying for position and preparing to breed.

He said only the strongest and most aggressive crocodiles reached four metres or longer.

“The croc has only been doing what nature intends it to do, and that’s survive,” Mr Marchand said.

“They know how to do three major things: eat, reproduce and aggression … if you’re not going to look after yourself, you’ll find yourself being eaten.”

Crocodiles shouldn’t be blamed for their natural behaviour, he said, and rejected the suggestion that the Jumping Croc tours were encouraging predatory behaviour on the Adelaide River.

“I’m sure crocs knew how to eat people a long time before we come along,” he said.

The attack is the third this year, after a boy was taken at a billabong at Jabiru in January, and another fisherman was snatched off his boat as he emptied a bucket in a Kakadu River two months ago.

A crocodile was also shot on the Tiwi Islands two weeks ago, suspected to have killed a local man who disappeared and has yet to be found.

But tests on the organic matter found in its stomach haven’t yet produced a conclusive result.

MERMAID CORPSE FOUND ON PAKISTAN BEACH

The online newspaper India.com is reporting the discovery of a dead Mermaid on the beach near Karachi Pakistan.

“Here she is,” the newspaper wrote, “the angelic Ariel, the in-flesh version of the cutesy mermaid of Disney’s The Little Mermaid series. But is she for real? Or are these some leaked out pictures straight from the sets of a Hollywood movie? Or is this just a prank to elicit ‘look- how-I-made-em-fools’ reactions? We, for sure, have no clue!”

Well that is nice that the newspaper said they had no clue. I was worried they were going to make a case for real or fake.

Regardless of the question of it being real, the rendition is pretty good!

“What we do know, for sure,” India.com reported, “is that while Miss M’s fin and her axial appendages may make the visual look real, her sharp facial features, her carved lips and high cheekbones make her the glamorous beauty of the underwater world.” Oddly, they made no remark why the mermaid was Caucasian. I mean even Barbie wouldn’t show up anything less than olive skin in that part of the world.

In the comments section of this article, there is more than one reader claiming the mermaid is a prop for an upcoming Disney sequel to Pirates of the Caribbean!

Well, as it turns out Disney is making a new version of Pirates called “Dead Men tell No Tales.” But I don’t think the movie is in production yet, an from the basic storyline published online there is no mention of a mermaid in the plot.

For now, the Mermaid pictures will remain a mystery, because apparently, dead mermaids tell no stories either!

HEY BILL, WHICH ANIMAL HAS THE BIGGEST BALLS?

Watch Video Below

Hey guys, Bill here. I got a question in the inbox from Sapman who wants to know which animal has the biggest balls? OK, I know he is goofing on me but actually it’s a pretty interesting question because first we have to decide what type of balls we are talking about.

Are we talking just technically biggest testicles on earth if they are just measured on their own? Or are we talking biggest balls in relation to body size? Or are we talking about “cajones” you know, animal with the most bravado – the most courage?

WATCH MY VIDEO AS I TELL YOU ALL THREE!

HERE’S A TEXT VERSION OF WHAT IS IN THE VIDEO FOR YOU GUYS THAT PREFER TEXT AND PICTURES.

Let’s just start with stand alone ball size. Now a lot of people might think those belong to the animal that has the most sex. But actually it’s even more obvious than that. The biggest testes are hanging off one of the biggest animals on the planet and it this case that would be the Northern Pacific Right Whales. These right whales have balls that can measure up to 201 centimeters long and 78 centimeters wide or 82 Inches by 30 inches. That means you probably couldn’t fit them in a regular size refrigerator.

Now, the biggest balls by body weight, happens to go to one of of our smaller creatures. It’s called the tuberous bushcricket. This little guy sports testicles that make up 14% of it’s body weight! That is equivalent of a 200-pound man with a 28 pound set of family jewels.

Tuberous Bushcricket testicles on display

Now why, you ask does such a small little guy need such big cajones? well lets just say it isn’t how much he can deliver to a single female. It’s more about how many females can he deliver to in ashort amount of time.

Okay, so now, we come to the question of ball size as it relates to courage… According to the guiness book of world records, the animal with the biggesr shamrocks in that dept. is the amazing, fearless, badass known as – the honey badger…Honey badgers are low to the ground and are notorious for their strength, ferocity and toughness. Their acts of daring do are hilariously described in a youtube video called The Crazy Nastyass Honey Badger.

OKAY NOW THAT YOU KNOW THE ANSWER CHECK OUT THE VIDEO TO SEE THE IMAGES!

GIANT ANACONDA CONFIRMED IN NEW JERSEY LAKE

16 Foot Anaconda in New Jersey is making residents nervous

Authorities in New Jersey have confirmed that a 16 foot Anaconda has shown up in one of New Jersey’s largest lakes. At the same time, they pissed off a reptile expert who is hunting for the reptile.

“I was sworn to keep my mouth shut by local officials to avoid causing a panic,” Gerald Andrejcak, the specialist, said. “Now that there’s a panic, I’m going on the record.”

Adrejack confirmed he is looking for the snake in Lake Hopatcong in Northern New Jersey.

He said he told a member of the Hopatcong animal control about his suspicions and was told to keep quiet.

Anacondas can grow up to 29 feet in length, the report said. Their biggest threat is humans.

“If someone can kill it and get out of here, that’s fine,” said Tony Colantonio, who rents a property on the lake. “I want proof that it’s gone.”

Andrejack said he is frustrated by the lack of response from municipal officials, and says he hopes he finds the snake before someone kills it.

MYSTERIOUS CREATURE FOUND IN JAPAN

Mysterious Creature Found in Japan

Mystery solved but not forgotten. With so many nuclear inspired monsters living in the sub-conscious of the Japanese culture, it is no wonder the police were called when this strange and creepy looking creature crawled out of the water in Japan a few days ago.

Frightful citizens called the police to protect them from this slithering threat

The police came. They surrounded this possible off spring of Godzilla. They brought in the experts and it was studied… and finally identified as a Japanese giant salamander or Ōsanshōuo as it’s called in Japanese.

Japanese giant salamander in it's natural setting

The Japanese giant salamander grows up to almost 1.5 m (5 ft),[2] it is the second-largest salamander in the world, only being surpassed by the very similar and closely related Chinese giant salamander. It’s an amphibian and comes up for air now and again. This one, must have been a victim of the “grass is greener” outside the water syndrome. Police say it was escorted back to the water and went home to his family without incident.
