10 Photos That Prove The Praying Mantis Is The Most Badass Insect On Earth

10 Photos That Prove The Praying Mantis Is The Most Badass Insect On Earth

Blog
googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('VN_PG_DTAT_ATF'); }); When it comes to the animal kingdom, the undisputed champion is the sloth (in my personal opinion, anyway). But what about when it comes to insects more specifically? I would like to nominate the praying mantis for the title of "Most Badass Bug."They might not seem like much at first glance, but they're scrappy and they fight creatures much bigger and stronger than they are (and often win). Just have a look at some of these photos and videos. I think they'll make you understand my logic. When a praying mantis sets its sights on you, you don't stand a chance...especially if they catch you off guard, like this poor lizard. Reddit /...

Veterinarian Removes Larva Found Crawling Around In A Kitten’s Head

Blog
When I was a kid, my mom had the displeasure of taking me to the doctor to remove a foreign object from my body. I was really curious about what would happen if I shoved a bead up my nose, so I did just that. When I couldn't get it out and started to panic, she took me straight to the emergency room for the not-so-fun task of pulling it out. Although it was extremely uncomfortable, I'm now forever grateful that I only had a bead stuck in my face after seeing this. googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('VN_PG_DCBP_ATF'); }); When Dr. Karri McCreary from Vet Ranch pulled a kitten named Speck and his siblings from an animal shelter, she was expecting to treat him for the ulcer in his eye. As you might imagine, she was horrified to find that Speck also had a larva l...

Turns Out, That Giant Snake In Maine Is Actually An ANACONDA

Turns Out, That Giant Snake In Maine Is Actually An ANACONDA

Blog
This summer, the city of Westbrook, Maine, has been in the national press for a series of clues left around town pointing to the existence of a legendary giant snake. The most intriguing clue was a 12-foot-long skin discovered by a local river. When we last wrote about this terrifying beast, the skin had been sent in for testing to see just what the heck it really was that Westbrook was dealing with... googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('VN_PG_DCBP_ATF'); }); This week, the results came back...and suffice it to say, things aren't looking good. The snake skin belongs to an anaconda, a rather large and deadly species typically found in South America. iStock googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('...

Shark eggs are among the strangest eggs in the animal kingdom. In fact, they often don't look like eggs at all. Usually, they look like rocks and turtle shells. Needless to say, they're pretty bizarre, which is part of what makes the following video so disturbing. Just watch what happens when this guy starts cutting away at a weird-looking object with some scissors. (source: Reddit)Didn't see that one coming, did you? The first time I watched it, I cringed so hard waiting for something terrible to happen. I was pleasantly surprised. Read more: http://www.viralnova.com/shark-egg/

Those Delicious Food Advertisements? Yeah, They’re Lying To You

Blog
Have you ever wondered why the burger you ordered looks so much less appetizing than it did in the photo on the menu? Well, that's probably because the photo on the menu wasn't actually a picture of a burger. The art of food photography is fascinating, and it's a field in which most things are not what they appear to be. Earlier this month, reporters at The Guardian spoke with several food photographers about their careers. They got them to spill the beans on how they make the food they photograph look so tasty. 1. Enchiladas iStock When it comes to photographing enchiladas, most food stylists actually use instant mashed potatoes as stuffing. This gives the enchiladas the appearance of being filled with delicious flavor. They then add meat to the ...

This 14th-Century French Nobleman Made A Hobby Out Of Killing Children

Blog
When it comes to 14th-century French nobility, there are few characters more illustrious (and more terrifying) than Gilles de Rais. Rais began his life as a darling of the French military, and he even fought alongside Joan of Arc during the Hundred Years' War. However, later in his life, it was revealed that Rais was always up to no good. Early in his life, Rais was considered among the finest of the French nobility. Wikipedia After growing up in his grandmother's household, Rais curried favor among his noble peers and was admitted to the French court. From 1427 until 1435, Rais served in the French military. He was eventually named Marshal of France and spent time fighting alongside Joan of Arc. It was after he retired from the military, h...

It’s Called Casu Marzu And It’s Considered The World’s Most Dangerous Cheese…

Blog
When you're looking for a special kind of cheese to spice up your sandwich, which one do you reach for? For me, it's usually cheddar, but some might want something a little more...exotic. For these folks, I would recommend trying the special Italian cheese officially known as casu marzu. Translated to English casu marzu literally means "rotten cheese." Casu marzu actually begins as a different kind of cheese altogether called pecorino sardo. However, instead of letting the cheese ripen in a darkened basement, cheesemakers bring the pecorino sardo outside and place it in the sun. There flies are allowed to lay eggs in it. Wikipedia As the eggs hatch, tiny maggots feed on the cheese and rel...

Get Ready To Feel Sick When You Watch This Guy Eating His Wife’s Placenta

I've joked around with my family about eating some pretty disgusting things before, but I hardly ever went through with it. Okay, there was that one time when my brother paid me to eat a live cricket, which I did end up doing. Trust me, though -- that isn't anywhere near as nasty as what this guy ate along with his regular breakfast. googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('VN_PG_DCBP_ATF'); }); While his wife was pregnant, this man jokingly told his friends that he was going to eat her placenta after she gave birth. Nobody was actually expecting him to do it, but that didn't stop him from chowing down on cooked andraw portions of her afterbirth like it was a delicious treat. This is making me seriously nauseous. Is anyone craving a nice, juicy piece of meat aft...

We always hear that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. And it's certainly one of the most delicious! No matter the time, I'm pretty much ready to eat a savory brunch with sausage and eggs if a plate is in front of me. If I had the same gross experience Ady Reid did, though, I might be turned off to eggs for a little while -- at least. Reid went to the grocery store to get eggs to make breakfast for his sons, but what he found when he cracked open the shells was revolting. Reid found blood in three of the dozen eggs in the carton before tossing the whole thing in the garbage.
