Oh for the love of god, what hell did you uncover? When a snake wrangler got a call about a rattlesnake in a home loo, he suspected it wasn’t the only slithering beast in the house. After removing the loo snake he went on a little hunt and uncovered 13 rattlers in their storm cellar and another 10 under the house. Feet up people , feet up. The family said they hadn’t seen a rattlesnake in years. Seems they are secretive, sneaky buggers.
It didn’t take long for this feline to discover there were kitty drugs in this Netherlands pet supply store. When staff went to the catnip aisle they found a random cat writhing in ecstasy over their toys. Well played kitty. The embarrassed owner eventually carted the drugged up puss home.
You know you are in Australia when people are asked to catch and donate deadly funnel web spiders to the Australian Reptile Park because they are low on venom antidote.

Want pizza in Japan during winter? Well you can AND have it delivered by a reindeer. Trials are underway in Hokkaido to train reindeer to deliver Domino pizzas. It is so going to happen as soon as they work out how to get them to behave and how to attach the delivery boxes securely on their backs . Good luck with that, pizza maybe cold.
Do you WANT me to flash?
When it comes to Australian wildlife we definitely have some winners. The latest discovery includes a frog whose groin flashes orange to startle its predators and give it a chance to make a quick exit.
PSST I swear I too would run if any creature’s groin flashed orange … just saying.
Scientists clock monkeys banging rocks together and suddenly we are staring into the monkey-apocalypse. Yep, the Brazilian Capuchin monkeys have been spotted sharpening rocks to open fruit. Sleep with one eye open loons, we may be over run by spearhead wielding chimps in the future.
An arthritic chook has got a new lease on life after he was fitted with a pair of specially designed shoes to relieve his pain and discomfort.
