Nature at its finest can be a thing of beauty. Here's pictures of the bloody carnage that results.

Impala put in a tree by a leopard for later


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...



Elvis the Crocodile eats a lawnmower!



Elvis the Crocodile tried to eat his keeper but took a lawnmower instead....

A hungry saltwater crocodile named Elvis with an apparent affinity for household machinery charged at an Australian reptile park worker before stealing his lawn mower.

"Before we knew it, the crocodile had the mower above his head," Tim Faulkner a witness said.

"He got his jaws around the top of the mower and picked it up and took it underwater with him."

The reptile workers quickly left the crocodile's space. Elvis appeared to enjoy his newly aquired mower and sat guarding it until he was bribed with some Kangroo meat to give up.

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!
