Impala put in a tree by a leopard for later

Thursday, December 29, 2011

Kiwiblog's DPF has been having a holiday in Africa - here's a cool picture he took of an impala having a sleep in a tree. How cute!

It's not actually,  the baby impala is dead and was put in the tree by a leopard for safe keeping so it could come back for a feed later on. How clever!

The photo was taken in Chobe National Park in Botswana.

While the leopard that caught this impala seems to be pretty smart, I'm more impressed with this leopard that took down a crocodile...



Tick eats man's ear!

Tick eats the inside of man's ear.


Check out this picture of a tick inside a man's ear dining on the parts in his ear canal!


The Herald reports that the doctor "inserted a fibre-optic endoscope video into the man's outer ear canal and found the parasite, about 3 to 4mm long, with its eight legs wedged on the eardrum.

The tick, which had been feeding on blood from inside the ear, had caused extensive bruising. It was also "tightly attached" and wouldn't budge, even after framycetin drops were used to try to dislodge it.

Mr Hornibrook anaesthetised the vet's ear and dragged the tick out with a small hook" which apparently made every thing tickety-boo!
