Freaks of Nature

(Artwork by Karmasoup.)

A green puppy was born in Louisiana last week. Could it be an alien-canine hybrid? Check out the video here.

Giant pythons could soon invade the Southeastern US. Don't say I haven't warned you about a MILLION times. Read more here. No dogs were harmed during in the writing of the article. (Only a duck, an alligator, a bobcat, a deer, and a pet store owner.)

Forget Godzilla. Huge, aggressive, and terrifying crows have taken over Japan. They steal candy from babies, carry away ducklings, and cause hundreds of blackouts each year.

You're on a boat in the middle of the ocean, and suddenly the water around you begins to pulse with light. Either you're about to be beamed up to the mother ship or you've just encountered some creatures with a very special talent. Check them out here.

Is this the biggest bull in Britain? (See below.) At six feet and six inches, Chilli is the size of a small elephant. And he's still growing.

Bonus Material:

Extra sticky frog tape
An unusual fish poison
What is it?

Ananka why are you posting articles about poor ducks getting killed!!!!!!!!!!! You've stopped the dog stories because that was a touchy subject and now you must stop the duck stories too. So add that to your list!!!!

Unfortunately they're saying the puppy won't stay green. But it would be pretty cool if it did.

1) LOVE the pic!
3) The pythons are really cool - everyone thinks that they are really scary and stuff, but I don't see the big deal, like unless I was the pet store owner or something. = D
4) While I have no problem with snakes, and I usually LOVE birds, the crows are really creepy. I've never liked them, especially when they are agressive!
5) The water lights are completly awesome. I would LOVE to swim there, wouldn't you? And the wave picture is cool.
6) Did you say the cow was still growing???????????!!!!!!!!! That is a HUGE cow! It's taller then the owner, even it's knees are gigantinc!
7)The frog tape is cool, but one thing I don't get is if it doesn't crack, how do you take it off so you can reuse it?
8) The fish poisein gets one word from me: weird. (FYI, that's quite a complement from me)
9)The squid egg sack is by far the coolest thing in this post, which is saying a lot because this was such an awesome post! I absolutly am researching more of that.

That was a looong comment!

Catgirl: Hmmm. What do you think?

Lorna: It's nature, my dear. We eat ducks, pythons eat ducks. It ain't pretty. At least the little doggies were spared this time.

Sekrit7: I appreciate your commitment to posting. ;)
