Meet The NAUGA!

In the 1960s, the United States Rubber Company (Uniroyal) introduced the world to their discovery of a supple synthetic leather substitute called Naugahyde, primarily for use as an auto seating leatherette material.  It made its debut on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson. Their brilliant “Mad Men" advertising idea was to create a fictional creature called the NAUGA from which the Nauga "hyde" was harvested. Needless to say, it was a huge hit. - Via: 1 | 2

I met this twerking, albino Raven named Pearl today. It is only one of four known albino Ravens in the whole world.

Pearl lives in this woman’s house. The handler has a permit, and the bird is property of the government (like hawks and falcons). She is affiliated with the California Wildlife Center. Every time the handler stopped petting Pearl she started cawing. She really likes affection.

Crabzilla or Hoax?

Is this a freakishly huge crab or just someone bored playing with photoshop? You might have seen this image within the last few days. The above photographs of Whistable harbour led people to believe that a monster-size crab (nick-named “crabzilla”) is living off the Kent coast in the United Kingdom.

Residents of Whitstable were stunned when the picture appeared to show a huge crab at the base of the coastal town’s harbour.

However a marine biologist, Dr. Verity Nye, who is an ocean and earth science researcher at the University of Southampton states: “The idea of a giant “crabzilla” would very exciting. Unfortunately, I think this is a hoax.”

She further stated that the United Kingdom does have large crabs but not anywhere near this size. The largest crabs tend to stay in deeper water and that this particular image is a different shape than previously identified huge crustaceans.

But this is just one scientist’s opinion…anything is in the realm of possibility when it comes to ocean life. Hundreds, if not thousands, of new species of marine life are discovered every year. Perhaps he’ll make another appearance…

He had been given the watch on his tenth birthday. It was an ordinary grey plastic wristwatch in every respect except for the fact that it was counting down. “That is all of the time you have left in the world, son. Use it wisely.” And indeed he did. As the watch ticked away, the boy, now a man,…
