  1. 1 What Do You Do When You See A Flying Fox In Your Backyard? (The Philippines)


    No that isn't the camera angle, that is actually one big bat. The flying fox also called the fox bat are among the largest bats in the world with a wingspan of 5 feet (1.5 metres) and a head and body length of about 16 inches (40 centimeters). They are found on tropical islands and the mainland of Asia. As scary as they look, these gentle giants only eat fruit.


  2. 2 Haven't Cleaned Behind The Dresser In Months


  3. 3 Crazy Bird Tornado


    This may look like a shot from Alfred Hitchcock's The Birds, but this eerie scene was created by none other than mother nature herself. A Reddit user posted the shot to the site's r/WTF thread and titled it "birdnado." The cluster is thought to be made up of starlings, a bird known for flying in thick flock formations called murmurations. These clusters reduce the amount of energy required during travel and protect them from predators. If starlings sense a shift in one part of the flock the entire pattern will shift.

  4. 4 Birds Using A Dead Pike's Mouth To Nest


    Pike fish are freshwater fish known as ambush predators because of their ability to lie perfectly still for an impressive amount of time, thankfully for these birds, this pike is out of the water so it's safe to say it's actually dead.


  5. 5 I Want To Ride My Bicycle


    Did you know that bees swarm when the queen bee leaves the colony with a large group of worker bees? It's how a new honey bee colony is formed. In the prime swarm, about 60% of the worker bees leave the original hive location with the old queen. This swarm can contain thousands to tens of thousands of bees. Usually, swarming takes place in spring, within a two- or three-week period, but occasional swarms can happen throughout the producing season as well.


  6. 6 This Spider Web That Looks Like A Spider-Man Mask


    Light, temperature, and humidity can affect the strength of a web. The adhesive droplets that spiders apply to their silk become sticky only when the silk leaves the spider’s body. But its strength can be affected by environmental factors, thus transforming into a creepy skull like this one.


  7. 7 Weird Mold Growing Out Of Cat Food Can I Left In An Empty Room For 10 Days


    By the looks of it, this could be a type of fungi called phycomyces. Phycomyces is not known to produce toxins, although its chemical composition has been investigated in considerable detail. It is probably safe for mammals: the fact that the dung of small mammals is the best natural source for Phycomyces spores suggests a regular consumption as food.


  8. 8 Toads Riding On A Python


    68mm just fell in the last hour at Kununurra. Flushed all the cane toads out of my brother's dam. Some of them took the easy way out - hitching a ride on the back of a 3.5m python.


  9. 9 My Town In Central Texas Has A Bird Problem


    Every autumn, flocks of birds migrate to warmer territories. Most birds migrate at night (when the air is cooler and calmer, and there are fewer predators), flying in tandem even when they are 655 feet (200 meters) or more apart. Some of them, however, can be spotted during the daytime as well.


  10. 10 Snaggle-Toothed Snake Eel Found On The Beach In Puerto Vallarta, Mexico


    This nightmarish creature is the snaggle-toothed snake eel or the Aplatophis zorro. It is a tropical eel found in the eastern central Pacific Ocean. According to the specimen found and studied by John E. McCosker and David Ross Robertson in 2001 they can reach a maximum length of 104 centimeters or 3"4 in feet (gulp). The eels live at 5-10 meters deep and live in burrows.




  11. 11 "There Was A Friggin Gecko Hiding In My Son's Toy Spider"


    Geckos are reptiles found in all parts of the world except for Antartica. To avoid predators they have developed special features such as camouflage to help them hide in any environment (even a toy spider). Most geckos are nocturnal creatures which means they are active at night, but there are day geckos which are willing to venture out during the daylight hours in search of food.


  12. 12 Grow Bigger Or Die


    It's hard to say how large these terrifying-looking locusts actually are. Are they true giants, or is the snake just a lie nipper? Either way, they appear set for a lovely sit down meal.


  13. 13 The Assassin Bug - The Ferocious Bug That Sucks Prey Dry And Wears Their Corpses


    These terrifying and aptly named insects inject lethal saliva into their prey which liquefies the insides, which are then sucked out.

    The corpses of the emptied out creatures are then worn as camouflage by the cunning assassin. The camouflage is to protect the bug from being preyed on by jumping spiders, but if anything you'd think it would make them look even more tempting!

  14. 14 Lizard Shed His Entire Face In One Go


    If you want to peel off the skin from your pet lizard's head, you should try to take it off in one piece, and you want to make sure that it's 'released' around the ears. Also, be extra careful around the eyes.


  15. 15 Something Is Growing Inside A Bottle Of Natural Orange Juice I Abandoned Inside A Cabinet For Over A Year


    This looks like it could be a cylindrical yeast colony. They form when nutrients settle on the bottom below the colony, allowing it to form vertically.


  16. 16 Just Going To Run


    This cozy fella has been identified as a rat snake. Native to North America, rat snakes are commonly found in the forests of the eastern and central United States and are essentially harmless to humans. If bitten by one of these critters, the most you will need is a small bandage, they are not venomous.

    As the name suggests, their diet consists largely of small rodents, meaning they can often be found around barns and garages. Careful handling them though if you do find one in your shoe, instead of biting they are more likely to cover their victim with a foul-smelling musk!


  17. 17 Death Shrouds From Hell - Spiders Cocooned These Trees To Save Themselves From A Flood


    In 2010 a monsoon hit Pakistan that caused the rivers to swell and insects to run for cover. The strange anomaly was captured by aid worker Russell Watkins, a multimedia editor with the U.K.'s Department for International Development (DFID) in the Pakistani village of Sindh."There wasn't a scientific analysis of this being done. Anecdotally, I think it was pretty much any kind arachnid species, possibly combined with other insects," he told National Geographic. It was noted that because the flood waters took so long to recede, spiders who had sought asylum in the trees had just begun to spin weaves. Locals said they had never seen anything like it before.
