Walking fish? Who'd a thunk it?

August 29th 2014 10:48
Maybe they had some extra time at the lab or maybe they've watched too much Syfy. Anyhow, three researchers at McGill University have raised fish to walk on land.

I see HORROR MOVIE written all over this!

European eel
Here's a story I couldn't believe.

An eel died in Sweden last week and it's believed to be 155 years old! That's pretty incredible for any creature in the wild but, this eel didn't live in the local water hole. This animal was dropped into a well to rid it of insects.

bull shark

The other day this blog talked about Americans embracing their sharks. Unfortunately, that's truer than imagined because a seven year old boy has been bitten in Lake Ponchatrain down in Louisiana.

Google vs. Sharks

August 14th 2014 16:24
When the next big wave of technology hits and people get weary of their smart phone or tablet, Google will probably go the way of Kodak. Until then, it looks like Google is doing its best to keep things in working order as this story outlines.

I would have paid money to see this!

Here's an account of an Australian Crocodile battling a bull shark.

There have been varying opinions on the outcome of a shark/crocodile confrontation so, I'm not gong to spoil the story and let you in on what happened. Just keep in mind the croc is 80 years old and missing a front leg!

August 2nd 2014 14:34
With prices the way they are these days, it's not uncommon to try and get one fishing rod that will take care of most of your fishing.

With that in mind, I eagerly dove into this article from North American Fisherman.

Here's a neat story about a guy taking a shark with a bow.

I've embarrassed myself by bow fishing but know one guy who is actually pretty good at it and regularly uses his bow for carp.

Write off the missing diver

July 18th 2014 03:11
I must be getting jaded because I don't view Animal Planet, History Channel, Discovery, or Yahoo with the same respect I used to have for them. Yahoo was the first to go and then the others did one thing or another that made me shake my head and wonder, "Why?"

After GrindTV ran this story, you can pretty much add them to the list. Of course, they're closely associated with Yahoo so, you have to question their TRUE news gathering abilities.
