The violent confrontation of a mule and a cougar (4 pics)

Posted in Animals 25 Sep 2009   / 10861 views

This story is just unbelievable, it's a bit old but we never put it on the site and not everyone knows it.
Here is what happened: a couple living in Montana were outside with a mule and 2 dogs. He with a gun (he is a hunter), she with a camera. A cougar that was nearby decided that he would have a dog for dinner.
The hunter saw the animal so he wanted to shoot in the air to scare the beast but did not even have time to do that - the cougar was already approaching a dog. Here is the incredible part of the story: the mule snatched the cougar up by the tail and started whirling him around banging its head on the ground repeatedly. Then the mule dropped it on the ground, stomped on it and held it by the throat. The mule got down on his knees and began to bite the creature a dozen times. The poor animal could not do anything ...
The hunter did not even need to shoot and the woman was able to take these 4 exceptional pictures. Conclusion, if you need an animal to protect you, think about the mules, they are very effective ))

Three cool stories from the animal world (11 pics)

Posted in Animals 18 Sep 2009   / 18221 views

The first story is unique, the second one is just interesting, and the third one is very funny ))

Let's start with unique photos of the bat.
Wildlife photographer Kim Taylor wanted to capture the moment when a bat flies over the water surface of the pond and grabs some water drops with its tongue.
It was a daunting task. Rapid bats are difficult to spot in the darkness for human eyes.
After a long and careful preparation (see first photo), he managed to make these unique photos.

Giant six meter crocodiles inhabit the river Adelaide near the city of Darwin, Australia.
Along the river, so-called "jumping crocodile” cruises take place, during which visitors are invited to look at the terrible reptiles - the enormous crocodiles jumping out of water.
Frankly, I was shocked, I did not think that these monsters can jump so high.

There are masters who know how to persuade a lizard to pose beautifully for almost every shot :)
And it is not surprising, because they have spent many years to tame these reptiles. But they really make great models.

Posted in Animals 11 Sep 2009   / 26186 views

Axolotl is the best known of the Mexican neotenic mole salamanders belonging to the Tiger Salamander complex. Larvae of this species fail to undergo metamorphosis, so the adults remain aquatic and gilled. But it doesn’t stop them from reproduction.
They look very funny and cute, especially they give the impression to smile all the time.
Nowadays, they are listed as endangered species.

The Tongue Eating Louse is a gross parasite living in a fish’s mouth! (18 pics)

Posted in Animals 9 Sep 2009   / 41050 views

Cymothoa exigua or the Tongue eating louse is a parasitic crustacean. It tends to be 3 to 4 cm long. This parasite attaches itself at the base of the spotted rose snapper's tongue, entering the fish's mouth through its gills. It then proceeds to extract blood through the claws on its front three pairs of legs. As the parasite grows, less and less blood reaches the tongue, and eventually the organ atrophies from lack of blood. The parasite then replaces the fish's tongue by attaching its own body to the muscles of the tongue stub. The fish is able to use the parasite just like a normal tongue. It appears that the parasite does not cause any other damage to the host fish.
This is the only known case of a parasite functionally replacing a host organ.

During the counting of cattle on a farm, the owner discovered that one calf was missing. Soon, the missing calf was found at the bottom of an abandoned well.
It couldn’t get out.
To save the calf, the farmer had to call the fire brigade and an excavator. They dug a trench, broke the wall of the well and pulled the scared animal out.
