Also known as kissing bugs, these critters don't look like much. However, they can transmit a deadly disease that often isn't detected until it's too late. Kissing bugs can be found all over America, with some species in Asia, Africa, and Australia. They like to live in chicken coups and outdoor dog houses as well as under porches, rocks, and cement.

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...

They Were Doing Underwater Research When — Suddenly — Something Massive Came To Say Hello

On April 15, 2015, researchers from E/V Nautilus sent a robot named Hercules down into the depths of the Gulf of Mexico, off the coast of Louisiana. They were exploring the biology, geology, and archeology of the ocean, and when they reached a depth of 1,962 feet, they suddenly encountered something magnificent -- a sperm whale. It is incredibly rare to have a robot meet a sperm whale at these depths, but what they captured on film for a live audience is amazing. The population of sperm whales on Earth used to be in the millions. Today, perhaps less than a few thousand remain due to hunting in the 19th century.

Doctors Weren’t Sure These Conjoined Twins Would Survive, But Look At Them Today!

About one in every 200,000 live births produces a set of conjoined twins. Unfortunately, their chances of survival are only between five and 25 percent.

The twins were born nine weeks early, and it quickly became clear that they would need to be surgically separated. The girls were connected by their chest wall, lungs, hearts, diaphragm, liver, intestines, colon, and pelvis. Because they each had their own heart, doctors became optimistic about separating them. ...

In the mid-1970s, a man named Roy Raymond walked into a department store to buy his wife some lingerie. The entire situation made him feel extremely uncomfortable. All he could find were hideous floral-print nightgowns. Not to mention, the saleswoman who came over to help treated him like a pervert. This journey into the women’s underwear section wasn’t entirely worthless, however. In fact, it inspired the idea behind one of the most recognizable and popular brands on the planet: Victoria’s Secret. The Story Behind Victoria’s Secret Following his disastrous visit to the department store, Raymond had an epiphany. He spoke with other male friends and came to the realization that there was a huge gap in the women’s underwear market. There wasn
