    Centipede Claws Out of Snake's Stomach-0

    by

    Mother Nature took the “fight-or-flight response” to new heights when she pitted this nose-horned viper against a centipede.

    Researchers on a field study in Macedonia last year discovered the dead snake with a centipede sticking out from its belly. A dissection of the snake revealed that its internal organs were missing. Researchers believe the centipede might have still been alive at the time it was swallowed, and that it destroyed the snake’s organs while trying to claw its way back out, Livescience reports. A brief report of the incident was recently published in the journal Ecologica Montenegrina.

    Record Freeze on the Great Lakes Has Big Impact on Fish and Waterfowl-0

    by

    This winter’s merciless conditions have brought reports of wildlife struggling to survive all across the country. The Minnesota DNR reluctantly rolled out an emergency feeding plan for its whitetails and a cold-stun kill in North Carolina devastated trout fishing prospects. And even though we’ve officially made it to spring, scientists say the effects from this winter will persist for months to come in the Great Lakes region.

    The Great Lakes have experienced near-record ice cover this year, with 48 percent of the five lakes still covered in ice as of April 10. That figure is down from the high on March 6 when 92 percent of the five lake’s 90,000-plus square miles were choked with ice, according to The Atlantic Cities. In comparison, ice coverage of the Great Lakes maxed out at about 38 percent in 2013 and just 13 percent in 2012. (This NASA photo shows 80 percent ice coverage on Feb. 19.)

    by

    Mountain lion hunters across Montana criticized increased harvest quotas presented at the Fish, Wildlife and Parks meeting Thursday in Helena. The agency relied on its own recent population study to propose raised quotas for the next two seasons, but hunters say wildlife officials overestimated the number of big cats and set quotas too high for the Bitterroot Watershed.

    Huge Wave Nearly Knocks Cod Fishing Crew Off Ship-0

    by

    Here’s living proof that your job is easy.

    These guys were cod potting, trapping cod in a large netted enclosure or “pot,” in Alaskan waters when a crushing wave throws the full wrath of nature upon them. The men are washed away like some anatomically correct bath toys only to right themselves and get back to work.

    Me?

    I’d be off camera holding on for dear life while crying through every prayer I know.

    Here’s to you cod potters! You’re far tougher men than I am.

    Officials to Stop Minnesota Emergency Whitetail Feeding Plan -0

    by

    In February we wrote about Minnesota’s emergency feeding plan to help the state’s northern whitetails survive harsh winter conditions. Wildlife officials began the first emergency feeding in 18 years amid both support and controversy on March 6. Now officials say this weekend likely marked the last distribution of the season. A long-range forecast predicting warmer temperatures and melting snow in the northern woods should rule out any further need for feeding.
