Pope's Peace Doves Attacked By Birds Of Prey! See The Dramatic Pic HERE!

Filed under: Scary!Attack!BirdsCrazzzzy

The Pope released some doves who were promptly attacked by birds of prey!

No! Poor peace doves!

The pope was giving his weekly Sunday Angelus prayer, in front of the tens of thousands of people who gather in the Vatican, along with two kids, when something unexpected happen!

After finishing his prayer for those in the Ukraine, the kids next to him released two white peace doves, which began to flapp away into the beautiful Italian sky… until they were attacked!!

Two birds of prey, a seagull and a crow, flew in and assaulted the peace doves!

The seagull pinned one of the doves against a wall and pecked at it but the bird escaped while the crow snatched and pecked at the other bird before it too escaped.

The magic power of the pope helped the birds get away with their lives!!

Kinda symbolic… the peace doves were attacked by birds of prey but overcame adversity and rose above it to fly off into the sunset!!

Check out a video of the dove release AFTER THE JUMP!!

Are WABBITS The Reason Neanderthals Went Extinct?

Filed under: Science!Rabbits

Neanderthals are now-extinct. Which is probably a good thing! We doubt they'd be able to drive cars very well with their big feet!

But the question of how they became extinct is still a pivotal question for scientists!

And one researcher thinks he may have found one part of what caused that extinction - rabbits!

Here's what the researcher said:

Rats Aren't Very Good At Not Getting Eaten

Filed under: Mama NatureSlithering SnakesOwlRat

When it comes to being prey in the animal kingdom, rats only seem to survive due to sheer numbers.

Whether it's a barn owl swooping in on a baby or a snake sneaking into their lair, rats seem to be an easy meal.

Check out the above video to see why it's so hard to be a rat.

Poor ratties… they may be gross to some people but (the ones that aren't disease riddled) are pretty cute if you ask us.

Lionfish Blows Jets Of Water To Catch Food

Filed under: Science!FishCrazzzzy

He'll huff and he'll puff and he'll… catch some fish somehow by doing this?

It has recently been discovered that the Pacific Red Lionfish blows jets of water at its prey to catch it.

Researchers believe the jets of water disorient the prey and make it easier to grab as the lionfish approaches head on.

Not every lionfish does this… just the smart ones looking for an easier meal!

Boa Constrictors Don't Stop Squeezing Until Your Heart Stops

Filed under: Science!Scary!Slithering SnakesCrazzzzy

boa_constrictor-killer-snake-man.jpg

Boa constrictors have a pretty cool (or terrifying) trick up their sleeve.

They can tell when its prey's heart has stopped beating.

Scary!

When it comes to all the different ways nature has cooked up for an animal to kill its prey, constricting is one of the most energy inefficient.

Imagine flexing every muscle in your body as hard as you can until someone dies. Sounds exhausting.

Well it is REALLY exhausting, so it helps the boa to know when they can stop squeezing so as not to waste any energy.

Researchers found this out by simulating heart beats in rat cadavers and they noticed the snakes always let go shortly after they shut off the heartbeat.

So if you ever get attacked by a boa, all you have to do is stop your heart until they let go, then restart it and run away before it starts eating you.

LOLz!

Tom Hardy's Dark Knight Rises Role Revealed??

Filed under: Film FlickersTom Hardy

tom-hardys-role-in-the-dark-knight-rises-dr-hugo-strange

This isn't exactly what we expected, but we think if anyone can make it work, HE definitely can!

Reports are circulating that Tom Hardy's mystery roles as a villain in Christopher Nolan's upcoming The Dark Knight Rises has been revealed to be a character from the graphic novel Prey, a deranged police psychiatrist named Dr. Hugo Strange!

According to his story, which is apparently the baseline for his part in the flick, Strange uses hypnotherapy to turn police officers into vigilantes to try and draw Batman out of hiding!

Inneresting!

But don't you think this feels a little too similar to Cillian Murphy's role in the first two films?

We suppose we won't know for sure until more details about the story start emerging!

Thoughts??
