• Snake in the Grass! Huge Everglades Python Shows Invasive Issue

    A giant python — about as long as a shipping container — that was captured in Everglades National Park in Florida earlier this month has now been euthanized, authorities say. The accidental finding of this snake shows how easily even huge pythons can remain hidden in Florida's swampy south, experts say. The creature weighed a whopping 133 lbs. (60 kilograms), and at 18-feet, 3-inches (5.6 meters), was almost as long as the largest python ever captured in the state of Florida, which was 18-feet, 8-inches long (5.7 meters).

    KUALA LUMPUR, July 31 ― Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi is as good a fit as “anybody else” for the post of deputy prime minister, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad said today.

  • Man who studied Cecil the lion for 9 years talks impact

    When Cecil the lion's carcass was finally found after he was lured out of a Zimbabwe wildlife reserve to be killed by an American hunter, it was a headless, skinless skeleton the vultures had been picking at for about a week. Conservationists decided the most natural thing was to leave the bones where they were for hyenas to finish off, said Brent Stapelkamp, a lion researcher and part of a team that had tracked and studied Cecil for nine years. Stapelkamp darted Cecil and put his last GPS collar on in October.

Sadly, as of right now, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a woman who exercises her right to go topless without being subjected to shade and/or side-eye.
