Crocodiles of Adelaide River (4 pics)

Posted in ANIMALS       15 Sep 2009       7657
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.

Axolotl, a that is always smiling (47 pics)

Posted in ANIMALS       11 Sep 2009       32852
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       46577
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.

The guardians of a park in Colorado found a bear sitting in a special pit for skateboarders.
It seems that the bear had spent the whole night there. He wasn’t able to get out of there because the concrete walls are smooth and there is nothing to cling to.
Look after the jump how they helped him.

The whole ‘show’ lasted few seconds. Wildlife photographers were watching the bait for three hours in the Atlantic Ocean near Cape Town (South Africa), when at last, a great white shark weighing over two tonnes jumped out of the water for a few yards, catching its prey.
And the photographers could take a picture of this incredible jump, just the way they wanted.

When poodles are transformed into other animals!! (14 pics)

Posted in ANIMALS       26 Aug 2009       14197
I’m not a fan of poodles, to be honest, it’s quite the opposite but those ones are really funny.
I could easily say that it’s a piece of crap and we should not make that to dogs but c’mon, look at the camel, it’s so funny! And the others are great too.
You may wonder why people did that to their poodles, well the reason is simple – they were all competing for the title of top dog at 'creative grooming' shows across the US. Owners of the dogs (mostly women) have only two hours to transform them into another creatures, but the poodles are colored before they arrive.
I call it art, funny and original art. I wish there were more of those creations to see in this series of pictures. Enjoy!
