Look out for that snake!

We're not sure how it's possible to lose an eight-foot-long snake, but it's happened, folks!

A massive male king cobra escaped from his home in Orlando, Florida yesterday, and there's still no sign of him!

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission said the gigantic reptile was reported missing on Wednesday, but no one has been able to track him down!

The scary part is that the snake's home isn't too far from a local elementary school!

However, officials said they were going to beef up patrol in the area, in order to protect any children walking to and from the building.

The school also did not hold outdoor recess on Thursday.

What an inspirational story!

A 90-year-old Pembrokeshire tortoise named Mrs. T has been around for a long time, but recently the gentle creature went through the most traumatic experience of her life.

While the tortoise was hibernating in a garden shed, a rat gnawed off her two front legs. Awful!

Mrs. T's owner Jude Ryder got the tortoise the medical help it needed to survive for $1500 — but that didn't buy new legs.

Jude turned to her son Dale, who cleverly used the wheels from a toy plane to give Mrs. T the chance to move around again!

And the tortoise can now move faster than ever before! Jude said:

This is crazy! Crazy awesome!!

A man in Tokyo, Japan has been spotted walking his giant tortoise in and around the streets, and the African spurred tortoise seems to be quite comfortable in the concrete jungle.

Pretty cool considering the reptile is used to the southern Sahara desert.

But the Japanese pet owner walks the tortoise just like we walk our dog. Except, obvi he doesn't need a leash — not like it's going to run away!

Of course, these walks take a bit longer than walking a dog! LOLz!

Talk about a pet that requires patience!!!

The video posted online showed the two girls dousing the tortoise in alcohol before setting it on fire, and then laughing and screaming as the tortoise tried to run away. They also threw the tortoise down the street and stomped on its shell until it broke and the tortoise died.

Since February 12, 2012, at least 132 people have been hospitalized across

This is what crowdfunding was made for!
