TWO HEADED ALLIGATOR PHOTOGRAHED IN FLORIDA

Two headed Alligator photo that was published on Tumbler

Florida Fish and Wildlife are scratching their heads today over a photo that went viral on the internet. It shows a juvenile 2-headed alligator which is possible, but how do you make sure it is authentic. It is a problem that appears almost daily on the internet these days.

The photo was from a Tumbler blog of Tampa artist Justin Alan Arnold.
The caption below the photo reads:

“Two-headed alligator spotted in Tampa, Florida along the Hillsborough River in the Seminole Heights neighborhood. According to Florida Fish and Wildlife, this alligator has been reported by several people. They explained that failed separation of monozygotic twins is common in reptiles and amphibians but they rarely reach this juvenile state.”

A State official, Gary Morse said there is the possibility that a 2-headed alligator can exist, but he, nor anyone from the Fish and Wildlife staff have ever seen one.

Morse said that he spoke with FWC staff in Tallahassee and local biologists about the photo.

“We have serious questions about the validity of the situation, Gary told reporters “By looking at a photograph, you can’t really tell much,” he added.

According to Wikipedia, Animals born with two heads are called “bicephalic.” This happens when twins don’t separate in the womb of the mother. It happens mainly to snakes and turtles.

Thai Elephant lost part of her leg to a land mine but now walks again

It’s estimated that 90 elephants in Mayanmar and Thailand have stepped on landmines. Of that number, only a very few survive the injuries. But thanks to the work of many dedicated people at “Friends of Asian Elephants” in Thailand, some not only survive, but get artificial limbs.

MAN PLAYS PIANO FOR ELEPHANTS

Paul Barton playing Beethoven to elephants in Thailand

Ok, so why would a pianist drag a piano up a mountain in Thailand to play Beethoven? Well, if you are Paul Barton from Britain, you do it to help raise money for injured and blind elephants.

And trust me, there are lots a injured elephants in Thailand, many of them from stepping on old and forgotten landmines. Check out my video below to see the situation. I almost guarantee you will want to do something to help too!

The best thing that can be done to help elephants injured by landmines, is the get rid of all the landmines. Here’s a link to the International Campaign to Ban Landmines – now go forth and get involved!

BABY GOAT GETS HIS OWN WHEELCHAIR

Frostie, the baby goat gets some wheels while his legs heal from infection. That's how he rolls.

Frostie the little Australian goat is back on the move again after recently being fitted with a customized wheelchair. The little goat lost use of his back legs from an infection he got from his umilical cord.

Frostie, who is just over one-week old, was brought to Edgar’s Mission, a not-for profit sanctuary for rescued farm animals outside of Melbourne, Australia on Tuesday by locals.

The facility has begun to give Frostie antibiotics to help cure the infection, but in the meantime, constructed a custom wheelchair to help him get about until his legs start working again.

The wheelchair was originally made for Frostie’s playmate, a one-month-old baby pig named Leon Trotsky, who was injured when his mother sat on him, crushing his hind legs.

STRONGEST SPIDER WEB IN THE WORLD

 

WATCH VIDEO BELOW

When it comes to the strongest biological material in the world, nothing comes close to the Spider Web

Spiders make their webs from a silk they create. This silk, according to scientists is five times stronger than Piano Wire.

In Madagascar, there is a spider called Darwin’s Bark Spider. This Spider’s silk is said to be the strongest in the world -  10 times stronger than the Kevlar used to make bullet proof vests!

Darwin Bark Spider

The strongest spider web I have ever personally seen was in the Amazon region of Brazil

I was on a hike with some fellow travelers… we had gone to see this amazing cave in the middle of the jungle. It was huge …. It had this amazing waterfall and It was filled with thousands of bats…All the walls and ceilings were covered with them…

It also had more than enough spiders lurking around to creep out anybody… even Chuck Norris

On our way back, my good friend and guide,  Wellington Melo, stopped and pointed at a spider web…

“You want to see how strong it is?” ( WATCH THE VIDEO TO SEE THIS ACTUAL SCENE)

Just how such small spiders can make a material so strong is a question scientists are racing to figure out. If scientists could reproduce the mechanical properties of spider spun silk in the laboratory, the material could be used to replace Kevlar, carbon fiber, even

POACHERS KILL KENYA’S BIGGEST ELEPHANT

Satao, the biggest of the big elephants, pictured when still allive

Poachers in Kenya have killed the biggest known elephant there. It’s name was Satao, a male giant whose tusks were so large they would often touch the ground as he walked.  But those giant ivory tusks are worth thousands of dollars each, making Satao a target by poachers.

Wildlife officials from Kenya had gone to great lengths to protect Satao from poachers, but last month their luck ran out. Poachers killed the giant elephant with poison tipped spears.

It is reported that the elephant was shot on 30th May with a poisoned arrow and it was not until the 2nd June that a body of a large elephant was found in the swamp. It was immediately suspected to be Satao but tests had to be carried out to confirm the identity of the elephants because of his iconic status.

Poachers hacked off the face to get ivory husks

 

The killers hacked off the face of the mighty beast in order to take the tusks which were so large that they reached the ground.

The elephants are known as “great tuskers” as their ivory reaches up to 45 kg on each side, making them much sought-after by poachers.

A blog post by wildlife filmmaker Mark Deeble read: “I am appalled at what that means – that the survival skills that the bull has painstakingly learnt over half a century have been rendered useless by the poachers’ use of mass-produced Chinese goods; GPS smart-phones, cheap motorcycles and night vision goggles.”

“I think the old bull knows that poachers want his tusks, and I hate that he knows. More than anything, I hate the thought that poachers are now closing in on one of the world’s most iconic elephants.”

According to the Kenya Wildlife Service, at least 100 elephants have been poached in the African country so far this year.

MAN RECORDS HIS FIGHT WITH A GREAT WHITE SHARK WITH A GOPRO CAMERA

WATCH VIDEO BELOW

OK is this for real? Or is this yet another shark prank video gone viral. It claims to be an actual video of a young man jumping into some water in Australia. Within seconds, a friend alerts him that a shark is just behind him. As the video continues we see the man’s arms and legs flailing about as he tries to get away from the shark.

The video has quickly become s raging debate, with YouTubers questioning whether the clip is real.

Many YouTube posters highlighted that at the 0:59 mark the shark flashes briefly in the centre of the screen and then suddenly shifts to the left of the frame.

Another individual noted, snidely: “Well done film editing. Shark conveniently in shallow water.”

Still, there were a number of people who believed the close encounter was genuine, stating that the young man had been incredibly lucky to have swam so close to the great white shark and not been harmed.

AMAZING DRONE VIDEO OF DOLPHINS SURFING

WATCH VIDEO BELOW

Surf’s up dude! Humans aren’t the only animal that likes to catch a wave every now and then. Even though they don’t use surf boards, dolphins love to go surfing!

Just like human body surfers, dolphins have been known to ride the crests of big waves as they roll into shore.

Just before the wave will crash into shore, the dolphins will turn around and rush back into open water.

There are mountains of images and videos of playful dolphins doing some rad moves on waves, but this is the first time I have seen it from a drone aircraft!

Researcher Dave Riggs captured the unique and surreal footage recently while spying for sharks above the breakers at Esperance, in Western Australia.

Riggs uses a Phantom drone to look for sharks normally, but this time he came across the dolphins. Thanks for hitting the record button Dave!  Very cool.
