Congratulations, Humanity, You've Let The Western Black Rhino Go Extinct

Filed under: Sad SadEndangeredRhinos

The western black rhino is officially extinct now. Well, that sucks!

We previously mentioned one wildlife group already declared the Western Black Rhino extinct.

Originally, we thought they might have jumped the gun a little, seeing as how the World Wildlife Fund had estimated there were still about 4,000 of the rhinos left.

Well now, the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), the largest conservation network, has declared the subspecies totally extinct.

Dead. Gone. Donezo.

Poached into extinction by heartless poachers. Thanks for that.

The chair man of the IUCN species survival commission said:

Filed under: ZooLionsBirdsPandaGorilla

A lot has happened at the National Zoo since the government shutdown!!

Remember when the worst thing that happened during the government shutdown was we lost our precious panda cam??

That was totes the worst!

During the government shutdown the Smithsonian's National Zoo had to close its gates! And it lead to the saddest photo we've ever seen!

Well the zoo is now back open! Huzzah!

While it was closed, some inneresting shiz went down: there was a departure, two deaths and some SEX!

Another Rare Sea Animal Washes Up On California Shores! This Time It's A Saber-Toothed Whale!!

Filed under: Science!Whales

Saber-toothed whale washes up on California shore!

Does anyone else think this thing bears a striking resemblance to the monster in Tremors?

A rare saber-toothed whale, named the Stejneger’s beaked whale (it's official name), has washed up on the sandy shores of Venice Beach, California!

Before being loaded up in this flatbed truck and taken away for a necropsy (as you can see in the pic above), the 15-foot-long, 2,000-pound beast was found dead about 1,000 miles away from its natural Alaskan habitat.

Cause of death is unknown, but the whale had several cookie-cutter shark bites in it.

They believe the whale was most likely alive when it washed up.

So sad it died by beaching.

One washing up this far south, in this level of of preservation is pretty much unheard of so at least science can learn a lot from it!

Still sad though… poor whale…

The real question is… what's going on with all these rare sea animals washing up on California shores?? Did you SEE the 18-foot Oarfish found last week???

African Lake Literally Turns Animals Into Stone!!

Filed under: Science!Scary!AmazingCrazzzzy

African lake literally turns animals into stone!

There is a magical lake in Northern Tanzania, Africa.

It's called Lake Natron and it can literally turn any animal that touches it to stone!!

Seriously, this sounds like a fairytale but it's not!

The lake gets its name from natron, a natural compound that's mainly made of sodium carbonate and some baking soda.

When animals swim through it, they eventually become calcified, effectively turning to stone!

Photographer Nick Brandt captured images of these petrified creatures for his new book, Across the Ravaged Land.

Brandt found several bird carcasses dead along the shoreline of the lake, so he posed them and snapped some pics, saying:

Decapitated Snake Bites Itself!!!

Filed under: Scary!Slithering SnakesDisgusting!Crazzzzy

Omg… this is horrifying!!

It's gross enough to watch a copperhead snake's body writhing around, even after the snake's head had been cut off…

But it's even worse when that decapitated snake head actually bites and latches onto… it's own body!!

The tail starts whipping around faster but the head won't let go! It's just awful!

This actually is a bit of a learning experience because we had no idea that a snake's head was still dangerous even after it's been cut off!

So, if you ever come across a decapitated snake's head… don't get too close. These are zombie rules, people! Destroy the brain!

Check out the video (above) to see a decapitated snake bite itself!
