Some wildlife news as of late:
Fla. Audubon Helps Wildlife Affected By Oil Spill
Oil soaked bird struggles against the side of the HOS, an Iron Horse supply vessel, at the site of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill, Gulf of Mexico on May 10, 2010.
The oil spill has been capped, and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration says South Florida will more than likely avoid the fallout of oil washing ashore the beaches. Many are letting out a sigh of relief but for others, work has really just begun.
"In general the goal is to protect birds and other wildlife. We do a lot of research that allows us to leverage policy that helps us to preserve places like this" explained Jerry Lorenz, a researcher with the Florida Audubon in Tavernier
Florida teen loses hand in alligator attack
A Florida teenager was attacked by an alligator and had his left hand torn off when swimming in a popular neighborhood canal.
Tim Delano, 18, of Golden Gates Estates, Fla., was attacked by the 10-foot alligator while he was swimming at dusk Sunday in a drainage canal known to locals as "the Crystal."
"I saw my bone, I had no hand," Delano told the Naples News.
The animal attacked Delano, pulling him underwater and going into a "death roll," during which gators roll over and over until their prey drowns.
"Fortunately, I had enough sense to take my right hand and I started punching it," Delano said. He got the alligator to release him, but when Delano got to the surface he realized that his left hand was gone.
Dicovered: The Biggest Rat That Ever Lived
The world's largest rat, found on East Timor, would have dwarfed today’s black rat (also called a house rat). Here, the skull of a black rat (bottom) compared with a fairly complete skull of one of Timor's other extinct giant rats (top). The giant rat shown here isn't the biggest of the extinct rats, which was around 25 percent bigger again.
Watch out Heathcliff, there's a rat out there bigger than you. Or at least there was.
Just a couple thousand years ago, the world's largest rat, weighing more than the average house cat, scuttled about what is now East Timor of Southeast Asia.
The skeletal remains of the robust rodent were found in a cave, researchers announced today. The excavations also turned up 13 other species of rodents, 11 of which are new to science, with eight of the rats estimated to have weighed more than 2 pounds (1 kg).
When alive, the giant of the bunch weighed some 13.2 pounds (6 kilograms). For comparison, a house rat weighs on average 5 ounces (150 grams). Today's heftiest rats weigh around 4.4 pounds (2 kg) and live in rain forests in the Philippines and New Guinea.
