|Camel spiders (so named because, like camels, they can be found in sandy desert regions, although they aren't technically spiders) grow to be moderately large (about a 5"- 8" leg span). Camel spiders rely on speed, stealth, and the (non-venomous) bite of powerful jaws to feed on small prey such as other arthropods (e.g., scorpions, crickets, pillbugs), lizards, and possibly mice or birds. They use only three pairs of legs in running; the frontmost pair (called pedipalpa) is held aloft and used in a similar manner to the antennae of insects. Camel spiders shun the sun and generally hide during the day, coming out at night to do their hunting. |
Although the creatures shown in the photograph above appear to be far too big for camel spiders, they look misleadingly large because of their closeness to the camera, which creates an illusion of exaggerated size. (Note their size in comparison to the uniform sleeve which appears in upper right-hand portion of the picture.)
A mixed-race British mom gave birth to twins recently one of each. No, not a boy and a girl. Two girls, one black, the other white. The odds of such a birth are about a million to one, experts said.
REAL!... Simply an albino fawn.

This is what can happen to a dog if it decides to tangle with a porcupine.
Real. Humming birds often become acclimated to close human contact.

The coconut crab is the world’s largest terrestial arthropod in the world and is known for its ability to crack coconuts with its pincers. They can weigh up to 4kg (Some reports claim up to 17kg) and leg span of 1m. It is eaten by the Pacific islanders and is considered a delicacy with a taste similar to lobster and crabmeat. A coconut crab will attack if it is threatened.
The Millau Bridge (formally known as le Viaduc de Millau), is the tallest vehicular bridge in the world. Opened in December 2004, the Millau Bridge spans the Tarn River valley in southern France and carries motorists for a 1.6 mile stretch through the Massif Central mountains at a height of 891 feet. The steel-and-concrete bridge is visually distinctive for its streamlined diagonal suspension cables resting on seven pillars, the tallest pillar soaring 1,122 fee high, making it slightly taller than the Eiffel Tower and just a bit shorter than the Empire State Building.
This bear was killed down on Hitchenbrook Island by an airman stationed at Elmendorf.
The bear measured 12' 6" and was estimated at over 1600lbs.
He weighs in at 22 pounds and measures a little over 3 feet. He is a breed of rabbit called German giant (how appropriate!). This is his owner, Hans Wagner, struggling to hold him up.
Very sad, but very real.
