There's currently a raging wildfire tearing through Cali and its impact knows no bounds. Amid the horror...
After a comprehensive study of their DNA and genetic make-up, scientists are now saying that octopuses (it's not 'octopi', okay?) are basically aliens... Yep, really. Mapping of the cephalopod genome sequence for the very first time shows that the eight-legged sea creatures have 33,000 protein-coding genes. That's a huge number...
When you've got a dog, you kind of have to walk it. Like, every day. It's one of the rules. And with most people's days being busy, the only real time a lot of us get to take our pet pooches out for walkies is at night. but that's...

Kuranda, Queensland, Australia. Now, we all know that that country is madness when it comes to nature. We brought you a snake eating another snake recently and thought that was crazy. But it gets more insane, apparently... Here we see a snake eating a fully-grown WALLABY! Worse still? The wallaby...
Queensland, Australia. The land of the creepy-crawly. And the creepy-slithery. Spiders and snakes run the place. They're everywhere. If you're an Aussie, you've just got to live with it. Sometimes, though... Sometimes you've got to do something. Get rid. Call an expert. Snake catchers Norman and Sally Hill are the...
Ever wondered what would happen if two of the deadliest insects on the planet - the black widow spider and the scorpion (which is technically an arachnid, but never mind that...) - went mano a mano (or insecto a arachnido, rather)? Well, wonder no more. In the following clip...
Krista Guarino is only ten years old. Now, most ten year-old girls would, understandably, be more than a little squeamish at the prospect of a room full of snakes. Hey - plenty of grown ups would to. But Katie Guarino's no ordinary girl. Well, she is - she's just...
