Ever wonder what happens if you squirt some hydrogen peroxide into a tick full to the brim with blood? NO?! Me neither. Let me tell you something.. they goddamn blow up into gross bubbles.
That's right... gross bubbles.

Called the 'Enyalioides binzayedi' this red-eyed male lizard has the spikes of a stegosaurus and the female has the look of a velociraptor. They were recently found in the mountains of Peru and are about 12 centimeters long.
Read on to see the female..
Cats are known for getting pissed off (angry). Well, this orange haired fellow is getting pissed and talking some serious smack. What is is saying... NO IDEA... all I know is that its bad, real BAD.
Beetlejuice! Beetlejuice! Beetlejuice! It's showtime!
Just look at this ultra-long and super-skinny Imantodes Chocoensis snake recently discovered in the Chocó forests of northern Ecuador. Get this, it is MILDLY venomous... so it's bite can make you sick as hell.
So brutal (I hate being sick) \m/
"Otherwise known as blunt-headed vine snakes, Imantodes have a very distinct look, with blunt-ended heads; big, sometimes almost googly, eyes; long, slender bodies and rather disproportionately thin necks."

\m/ FIRE TORNADO \m/
With a bit of chance on his side Chris Tangey spotted a 90 foot tall tornado of pure fire spinning it's way around the Australian outback.
"A fire tornado, also know as a fire devil, is caused when a column of warm, rising air comes into contact - or causes - a fire on the ground. "
Make sure you read on to see a video of the fire tornado in action.
Clams are DELICIOUS. So is SALT. So are FACES.
I can't help but think of the scene in Terminator 2 when a guard at a mental institute licks Sarah Connor's face while she is restrained to a bed. 'Cept this is SALT and a clam, but if you think about it... Sarah was pretty sweaty (all the time), so I imagine it tasted exactly the same. Yum yum.
Believe me when I say that no one knows why this squirrel is purple, so I am going to go out on a limb here and make claim that this squirrel is directly from outter space. Yes, a purple space squirrel. Don't believe me? Fine. This particular purple squirrel was caught on the Jersey Shore in Pennsylvania by Percy and Connie Emert.
"We put him in an extra big cage so he has room to run around, and we'll release him soon. In the meantime, all the neighbors have been by to see him. No one can believe we have a purple squirrel!"
Now duct tape a few cinder blocks to the cage and chuck it into the neighboring pond and save planet Earth.

"Scorpion bodies are studded with eyes, sometimes as many as twelve — and scientists may have found one more. A scorpion’s entire exoskeleton may act as one giant light receptor, a full-body proto-eye that detects shadows cast by moonlight and starlight."
Douglas Gaffin of the University of Oklahoma and a team of scientists took scorpions, some which were blinded and some not and noticed something particularly odd; they all walked the around relatively the same.
"“Maybe they’re collecting stray UV light, maybe starlight, and pigments turn it to green, and that’s what their nervous system is picking up on,” Gaffin said.'How do they do this? I don’t know.'"
Crazy... so they might be using their exosekeletons as a sort of lunar GPS system. Very cool. Anyway, read the full story from the source below and go buy yourselves a scorpion and a blacklight.

Most would say "Burn it with fire!!!" but I beg to differ. This pig was the 5th in the litter of which pig farmer Xiao Jintu of Changtai County, Fuijan Province was surprised to deliver. You just have to look past the double snout and into belly of the pig and there you will find the most coveted bacon source I have ever heard of.
"It came out 5th and I was stunned in seeing its appearance." said Mr Jintu.
In the land of the blind pigs being made into scruptuous bacon, the pig with one eye is king.
Tracey Sandstrom, of Roaming Reptiles in Australia owns a freakin' crocodile. Tracey's freakin' crocodile is named Snappy. One day freakin' Snappy decided to munch on the freakin' water filter out of the Tracey's freakin' water tank.
WHAMMO Snappy turns bright freakin' orange.
"Our guess is that it is something in the water such as iron or tannins from leaves or some red algae that oxidises when it dries," Professor Webb said.
If there ever was a crocodile that I needed to ride around making loud Harley-Davidson sounds on while hunting down the elderly and school children, this freakin' orange croc would be it.
Praying mantis, you look super tough versus a thumb. This is an Idolomantis Diabolica and from what I can tell it has studied KungFu, not to be trifled with.
