Amazing pictures have emerged of a brave lion handler giving a 250kg big cat a loving foot rub. Alex Larenty, 50, has built a unique bond with nine-year-old Jamu by  tickling him on his giant paws at The Lion Park, outside Johannesburg. [via http://news.ninemsn.com.au/] via - illapt:bitchville:

The pictures BP doesn’t want you to see. « Climate Progress - Yesterday, AP photographer Charles Riedel filed these disturbing images  of the effect the BP oil disaster is having on Gulf  Coast birds (via  Amanda Terkel at Think  Progress).  BP has been working to keep journalists away from the region, but the situation appears to be improving, according to  yesterday’s Washington  Post.  Ultimately, the press gets the story and efforts to  block coverage always backfire.

The plant is among the largest of all pitchers and is believed to be the largest meat-eating shrub, dissolving rats with acid-like enzymes.  The team of botanists, led by British experts Stewart McPherson and Alastair Robinson, found the plant on Mount Victoria in the Philippines.



May ganito tayo?! :O It’d be a useful household plant. Haha. :P

A quote from Miguel de Unamuno (via thechosenwords) (via missinglingerie)

"Man is said to be a reasoning animal. I do not know why he has not been defined as an affective or feeling animal. Perhaps that which differentiates him from other animals is feeling rather than reason. More often I have seen a cat reason than laugh or weep. Perhaps it weeps or laughs inwardly — but then perhaps, also inwardly, the crab resolves equations of the second degree."

Immortal jellyfish (via Top 10 Badass Living Creatures)

After reaching sexual maturity, this jellyfish is able to reverse its aging process and become a polyp again. The ability to reverse the life cycle is probably unique in the animal kingdom, and allows the jellyfish to bypass death, rendering the Turritopsis nutricula biologically immortal. Lab tests showed that 100% of specimens reverted to the polyp stage.

I’m sure this poor thing will be turned into face cream to appease human vanity.
