Wild Planet





Above: A family of bobcats has taken over a house in Southern California that was abandoned because of the foreclosure crisis.

A part of the Indian Ocean the size of Connecticut has been glowing in the dark for several nights in a row. Though the glow has been described in books such as "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea," this is the first time the phenomenon (known as a "milky sea") has been captured on satellite.

In the great state of North Carolina, a man and his granddaughter recently caught a record-sized catfish using only a pink plastic Barbie rod and reel.

Who needs a compass? All you need to know where you're going is . . . a cow. Studies have shown that 60 to 70% of the time, cows graze in a north/south pattern.

The price of rat meat has skyrocketed in Cambodia.

Planning any home renovations? If so, I recommend installing a "Fish 'n Flush," the world's #1 toilet aquarium (shown below).

The fish-and-flush always kind of scared me... I know it doesn't hurt the fish, but still...
