This Snake Somehow Is Still Alive 16 Hours After Losing Its Head

This Snake Somehow Is Still Alive 16 Hours After Losing Its Head

Uncategorized
When you're a hunter who kills and cooks your own food, the last thing you expect is for your catch to come back to life at some point during the cooking process. That goes double if you happen to be into hunting and cooking rattlesnakes. Sadly, this is a thing that actually happens sometimes. Take, for example, what happened to the guy in this video. He caught a couple of rattlesnakes and was preparing to cook them when one seemingly came back to life...despite being headless and skinless. Mildly NSFW, especially if you're about to eat lunch. (via Reddit)When this happens with dead animals, it's usually because someone put salt on them, which can make the nerve endings fire and cause twitching. However, according to the video descriptio...

Two Brothers Happened Upon A Trapped Bald Eagle…And Set It Free In Epic Fashion

Uncategorized
Ann, Michael, and Neil Fletcher were enjoying a cold afternoon in the woods of Sudbury, Canada, when they stumbled across something strange in one of their hunting traps: a bald eagle. Instead of letting the poor guy suffer in a trap intended for smaller game, the two brothers bravely decided to free him. With the aid of their (non-helpful) dog, they were able to get the massive bird free.(function(d, s, id) { var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0]; if (d.getElementById(id)) return; js = d.createElement(s); js.id = id; js.src = "//connect.facebook.net/en_US/sdk.js#xfbml=1&version=v2.3"; fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, fjs);}(document, 'script', 'facebook-jssdk'));Me and Neil found this eagle in a trapPosted by Michael Fletcher on Tuesday, November 24, 2015 Thankfully, they thought ...
Butchered Mastodon 15,000 Years Ago Reveals Earlier Human Presence In Southeastern U.S.

Butchered Mastodon 15,000 Years Ago Reveals Earlier Human Presence In Southeastern U.S.

Uncategorized
The butchered remains of a 14,550-year-old mastodon in Florida have blown apart our understanding of how and when mankind first conquered the American landscape. Not only does this finding push back the start-date of humanitys American dream, but it also provides new insights into how humans and mastodons co-existed, suggesting they shared their territory for at least 2,000 years before thisancient relative of modern elephants became extinct. Until recently, it had been assumed that the first people to set foot in the Americas were members of the Clovis complex, which arethought to have arrived on the continent around 13,000 years ago. However, a number of archaeological sites such as the Paisley Caves in Oregon and Monte Verde in Chile have yielded stone artifacts and ot...
After Killing Famous Lion, Internet Outrage Forces The Killer To Close His Dental Office

After Killing Famous Lion, Internet Outrage Forces The Killer To Close His Dental Office

Uncategorized
Cecil the lion was one of the most popular attractions at Zimbabwe’s Hwange National Park – until he was killed by Walter Palmer, a dentist from the U.S. who paid $55,000 for the “pleasure” to kill the 13-year-old wildlife celebrity. The backlash from animal lovers around the world has been so strong that the dentist’s website has shut down and his office is shuttered. Palmer, a trophied archer, paid a guide to lure Cecil out of the park at night so he could be hunted. He shot and wounded Cecil with a bow, but was only able to kill him 40 hours later. Cecil was beheaded and skinned – his carcass remained unused. Not only did his hunt kill a local celebrity at the park, but, according to the Zimbabwean Tourism Authority, the hunt was illegal, and a crimin...
Good Samaritan Hunter Does Something Amazing When He Sees A Deer Caught In A Fence

Good Samaritan Hunter Does Something Amazing When He Sees A Deer Caught In A Fence

Uncategorized
Hunting, whether for sport or for food, usually ends with one or more dead animals. Some people think hunting is unethical, but most hunters do have ethical codes. An idea that is commonly included in these codes is that of "fair chase," which is defined as the "ethical, sportsmanlike, lawful pursuit and taking of any free-ranging wild animal in a manner that does not give the hunter an improper or unfair advantage."When a hunter came upon a deer stuck in a fence, his ethics dictated that he not shoot the young creature. Instead, he helped it. Watch as the hunter carefully lifts the unsure deer and helps it out of a precarious situation.var _informq = _informq || []; _informq.push(['embed', 'ndn_582d26e6e1d01']); Read More: When These Hunters Ca...
Cunning Orcas Seen Ambushing And Headbutting Dolphins In Patagonia

Cunning Orcas Seen Ambushing And Headbutting Dolphins In Patagonia

Uncategorized
Killer whales (Orcinus Orca) are well known for their ingenious hunting techniques, which range from generating artificial waves in order to knock seals off ice floes to deliberately beaching themselves in order to catch coastal sea lions. However, orcas in the waters off Patagonia appear to have now raised the sneakiness stakes, after researchers observed a never-before-seen method of ambushing dolphins. Until now, virtually nothing was known about the diet or predation methods of orcas in the region during the months of February to April, when the sea lion hunting period reaches its yearly low. While it had previously been hypothesized that Patagonian killer whales may have fed on dusky dolphins at this time, the recent sighting which was reported in the journal Aquatic Mammals provid...

How Close Are We To Finding Another Earth?

How Close Are We To Finding Another Earth?

Uncategorized
Do the maths: billions of planets per galaxy, and billions of galaxies in the universe. Its unlikely that only one of those has all the characteristics of our own Earth-sized, orbiting a Sun-like star, and slap bang in its habitable zone where water can form. Why are those characteristics so important? Well, Earth is the only planet we know to have life on it. It makes sense, therefore, that if we find a world exactly the same as our own, then it would at least be potentially habitable, and may have life existing on it presently. A so-called Earth 2.0 is the holy grail for planet hunters. So, how close are we, what are we looking for exactly, and what tools have we got? Given that it's officially exoplanet week, let's take a look at where we stand. How close are we? The chances are that ...
