Thar She Blows! The Top 8 Exploding Whales

Cetaceans don't explode very often but when they do, they make a whale of a mess. An 81-foot-long carcass of a Blue Whale that washed ashore in Trout River, Newfoundland is the latest ticking time bomb to have folks holding their breaths... and their noses. Here's what can we expect when Moby Dick meets his end with a bang and not a whimper.

Chamallow: The Cat Houdini

A veterinary clinic in Marseille, France, was in an uproar when Chamallow came to live there. He was unwilling to remain captive as long as he could do something about it. And so something he did. The little escape artist managed to make his way out of every cage they tried on him. So they finally caught him in the act on video to understand just how he was getting out.

Google Glass For The Praying Mantis?

Many have wondered if the "Praying" Mantis was mistakenly misspelled, and that this very unique insect which belongs to the "Mantidae" family should be referred to instead, as the "Preying" Mantis.  And to that point, with some very intriguing scientific research underway this week, it would seem that this predatory critter is being equipped with something comparable to Google Glass to get even more upfront and personal with its prey.

No, Virginia, There Isn't An Easter Bunny?

While the New York Sun's editorial writer Francis Pharcellus Church might have had his reasons to pen his famous response to 8 yr-old Virginia O'Hanlon pertaining to the existence of Santa Claus in 1897 -- it's been announced with some certainty this holiday season that there's no such thing as an Easter Bunny!

Llama On The Loose On College Campus

Earlier this week a llama drama unfolded in the town of Trinidad in Southern Colorado.

Police were called in to try and round up the llama, but it was unwilling to cooperate with authorities. It was not the fugitive's first offense.

American Bombay Cat - Predatory Panther Or A Priss Of A Puss? [Video]

With a sleek patent-leather-like black coat, a muscular build and tapered gold or copper-colored eyes that emit a piercing glaze, it's no surprise that the American Bombay cat is often mistaken for a Panther kitten. However, despite its threatening facade, this feline would much rather curl up in your lap than join its distant big cat cousins in the wild.

"What's Your Sign?" Could Be A Real Animal, According To Native Americans

The word "Zodiac" literally means animals, but the 12 Astrological signs we're familiar with refer to patterns or constellations of animals as seen in the evening skies.
