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
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), 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.
HERE’S A VIDEO ON THE MYSTERIOUS CREATURE
Found on the beach. But what is it?
The mystery of the creepy looking creature that was found on the beach in South Africa may have been solved. John Rudley from the National Oceanic Institute says he thinks it might be… but wait, I haven’t told you the whole story yet.
A woman in South Africa posted this picture on her social media page. She found it on the beach near Cape Town, South Africa…
Along with the picture, she asked “Can Somebody tell me what the hell this is? We picked it up on the beach. It’s the real thing.
The weird looking creature is fish like but with huge teeth and it’s head appears far too big for it’s small body.
So far, people have speculated that the creature is some kind of mutated species – specifically a cross between a puffer fish and a mussel. But that is just wild speculation.
So now back to Rudley. He thinks the creature might be a Rocksucker. This is a species of clingfish found along the Atlantic coast of Africa from Namibia to northern Natal, South Africa. This species grows to a length of 30 centimetres (12 in) TL.
Rocksuckers are a type of clingfish that had dried out in the sand and became disfigured.
This is a picture of a Rocksucker, and it does look similar, but so far nobody has been able to prove it one way or another.

Parrotfish can't help but photobomb this snorklet
Humans aren’t the only creatures that are into photobombing. Here are examples of a parrotfish and a stingray doing their best to upstage snorklers with their underwater cameras. In the first picture above, The fish, swimming near Eastern Dry Rocks at Key West in Florida, US, caught the diver totally unaware as it dropped into the shot.
Emily Inman was stunned when she looked back through snaps taken of husband Robert and son Raphael from a day out at The Deep, in Hull, East Yorks.

I don’t about you but I am always suspicious when I watch Shark Attack videos, because lets face it, a lot of them are obviously fake….
But just recently a new shark video appeared on Youtube. It claims to show a young man jumping into the ocean with a go pro camera and having an up close encounter with a great white shark!
The next few minutes look like a terrifying experience, but is it real, or is it fake? That’s what I want to know….

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.

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!
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.

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!

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
