More Than 800 People Have Died In India As The Country Faces One Of Its Worst Heat Waves On Record

| Filed under: R.I.P.Sad SadMama Nature

no title

Our hearts continue to go out to everyone in South Asia.

As if the horrific earthquakes in Nepal and surrounding countries that killed just under 9,000 people weren't terrible enough, India is now suffering a deadly natural disaster of its own.

Over the past six weeks, over 800 people have died throughout India due to a severe heat wave that shows no signs of stopping anytime soon.

Temperatures have reached 117º F in parts of the country, and hospitals are currently doing their best to treat heatstroke after 551 people died in the state of Andhra Pradesh this past week alone.

In fact, it's so hot throughout the country that the asphalt roads are literally melting.

Andhra Pradesh's Special Commissioner for Disaster Management of P. Tulsi Rani has assured the state's citizens that the Indian government is doing everything it can to provide aid, saying:

Not The Bees! Semi Truck Crashes, Spills Out 14 Million Bees Onto Interstate!!!

| Filed under: Mama NatureInsectsGIFsViral: Animals

That's a lot of bees!

A semi truck was involved in a pretty bad accident Friday on Interstate 405 near Lynnwood, Washington.

And while the driver of the truck was not injured, this crash was a very different type of highway nightmare — the truck was carrying over 14 MILLION BEES!

Many of the $92,000 worth of bees died in the crash and recovery process, but the majority of the bees were saved and put back on their way to pollinate a blueberry farm in Whatcom County.

Luckily, the crash happened around 3:30 am, making it much easier to wrangle the cargo — the sun causes bees to get much more agitated and difficult to handle.

As it is, almost all of the Highway Patrol, media, and other responders on the scene were reportedly stung at least once.

Ouch! We're just glad the driver and most of these bees ended up OK!

Dwayne Johnson Fights Earthquakes To Save Californians From 'The Big One' In New San Andreas Trailer!

| Filed under: Film FlickersMama NatureDwayne "The Rock" Johnson

no title

If we had to elect one man to go fight an earthquake, it'd be Dwayne Johnson.

If we had to elect a man to also dodge falling buildings in a helicopter, carry injured people through more destruction and then fight a tsunami… we'd still pick Dwayne.

That's why Dwayne is perfect for the role he's playing in San Andreas!!

The movie is basically about a search and rescue helicopter pilot (Dwayne) and his estranged wife making their way to San Francisco to save their only daughter… from earthquakes!!

We have a feeling this movie is gonna be a lot of The Rock running around, dodging natural disasters. And that sounds fantastic.

Check out their newest trailer (below)!

Keith Sheldon is a Tennessee man who has a thing for photography.

So when there was a big ice storm in Franklin, Tennessee, Keith grabbed his camera and went out to shoot the landscape.

At one point, the road got too icy and he had to turn around, noticing a car stuck in a ditch while doing so.

He started taking pictures of the car, then noticed something… a woman was lying on the ground next to the vehicle!

It was a missing 74-year-old woman who was literally FROZEN to the ground! Craziest part??

She was

It's Groundhog Day! Even Though He's Wrong More Often Than Not… What Did Punxsutawney Phil Predict??

| Filed under: Mama NatureCuteness!Groundhog

no title

Punxsutawney Phil is probably one of the least reliable weathermen in history.

Though we're pretty sure Phil hasn't adjusted for global warming over the past decade… so maybe it's not entirely his fault.

Regardless, people still rely on the little guy to predict just how much winter is left.

So, when the little critter popped out of his home in Gobbler's Knob (heh heh), Pennsylvania, what did he see?

Wanna Watch A Hamster Stuff Its Cheeks With Food While Being X-Rayed?? HERE YOU GO!

| Filed under: Mama NaturePetsCuteness!AmazingCrazzzzyHamster

no title

Hamsters make super adorable pets who always bring the cuteness!

We could watch a hamster do anything, from running through tubes to watching them shove little bits of food into their cheeks!

Isn't that amazing?? The whole cheek stuffing thing?

Hamsters look so cute when their faces get all puffed up with food… but what's the science behind that? Where is all that food stored? Just how big are a hamster's cheek pouches??

Thankfully, the BBC series Pets - Wild at Heart has the answer!

They not only filmed a hamster eating a bunch of food… they filmed it in X-ray!!

Wanna know exactly what's going on when a hamster is stuffing its cheeks?? Check out the video (below) to find out!!

Invisible Tornado Wrecks Up Rose Bowl Fanfest! It's A Tentnado!!

| Filed under: ZportzMama NatureFootballScary!Crazzzzy

no title

This is so NUTS!

Who would expect a freakin' tornado to pop up out of nowhere in California of all places?!

In the "fanfest" area of the Rose Bowl, the day before the big game a dust devil blew in.

Yes, a dust devil. The same type of swirly wind event that makes mini leaf-tornados in supermarket parking lots.

They can get pretty big, and when you combine a powerful dust devil with several tents and canopies, which weigh nothing and are basically sails, you get a tentnado.

And it's pretty damn serious. Even an entire bounce house is picked up and hovers for several seconds!!

We're glad there were no kids in that bounce house! That ride would've been WAY too fun and would've ruined any future ground-based bounce houses for them.

Seriously though, no one was injured and that's a miracle!

Check out the video (below) and watch the confused cow person not know what to do.
