Ten weird creatures

Found this 10 weirdest newly discovered animals link on the NPR site. It seems like the buggers get weirder and weirder as the humans discover them. The rarest are probably just perceived at first as strange and unusual; but imagine what it was like to have seen a rhinoceros for the first time. The Europeans thought it was some kind of unicorn :P

Here's a link to the National Geographic article.

And, of course, may favorite - pictured is the Yoda Bat.

Corey Haim plays joke from the grave

Heh heh ;)

Big fire in a hotel. Firefighters stumble upon murder scene, and police investigate. It's described by the police chief as the most grisly scene he's witnessed in his career.

Kudos to the prop crew and special effects team who… designed the room for the movie, New Terminal Hotel with the late Corey Haim.

Full story here.

More on the movie itself here.

Saddies for the 12 who've died in the hotel (it's haunted, so of course humans want to blame the ghosts).

Hey, did anyone notice the trend of murderous farmers hanging the bodies of their victims in the fields?

Fuzzy Wuzzy was a spider.

Isn't this new Israeli spider a cutey? See more at National Geographic.

Vampire Wedding, Werewolf Witness

Useless without pix, I know. I hate when these articles pop up without images of which to properly make fun. More vampire fans getting married in England.
I don't know a single vampire who has ever expressed an interest in a human themed wedding.

A very thoughtful father in China found his dead son a nice dead girl to share eternity with him.

Read the gruesome deatils here.

Isn't that nice?

Werewolf? There wolf!

I guess humans have such a case of monster-envy that they're trying to find any way they can to associate themselves with us monsters. Now there's 'proof' that a full moon has a werewolf effect on people.

Extra, extra, read all about it!

Back to the cave

Cave spiders. Male on the left. Female on the right.

BBC Earth News. Sounds like the set up for a horror movie: Ten years ago archaeologists explored a cave, and accidentally brought back cave spiders in their equipment. The spiders made themselves at home in a nearby house. Now, they have to go back to the cave.
Like me, they don't like light, so I'm guessing they'll be much better off.

Fox muses vampires

Are vampires real? Well, these three certainly aren't.

Fox muses the scientific possibility of vampires. The annual articles debating if vampires are real seem to be happening more often… or at least every time some stupid human-made vampire film is released.

Here comes the science.

Read it, and weep… tears of ketchup if you don't mind.

Kong's skeleton

King Kong's skeleton.

Found this at Millions of Monkeys.

The original King Kong skeleton was sold at a Christie's auction for $218K. Long live King Kong.

Clicky for link.

Juan Cabana strikes again!

I must be losing a step. I had to find this floating around on Betty Bones' blog through my sister, DeMonica. I've posted finds about this guy, Juan Cabana before. Early on I didn't realize he's an artist, but now I really admire what he does. He's moved on from hoaxes, and is creating taxidermy creatures that never existed… at least as far as YOU know.

Juan Cabana Creatures on

Here's his art at the original site that featured the hoax art.

This is one of Ira / Miguel's works of art: A mummified demon bat.
