Goblin Shark, the 'Alien of the Deep,' Found in Australian Waters

Originally posted 03/03/2015 05:30 PM

The species' bizarre looks have given it such nicknames as "alien of the deep" and "living fossil," but McGrouther's quote, which originally appeared in this Agence France-Presse article, speaks to how most people would greet this creature: "Eek!"

Think You Can Guess an Animal From Just Their Tail?

It's furry, with a long tail, and has big ears … if you guessed monkey, we'd make great teammates!

A new app called TailsUp! tests your animal knowledge with a Charades-like game, using verbal and physical clues to help your teammate guess the right animal.

The game, created by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums to help kids and families learn more about animals, will give proceeds from in-app purchases to the AZA's animal conservation.

"I can show you the world. Shining, shimmering, splendid. Tell me, weasel, now when did you last let your heart decide?"

That's the music I hear in my head as this odd couple soars through the Hornchurch Country Park sky in London. According to ITV News, the story behind this extraordinary photo is a little different and a tad darker than it appears.

Llamas React to the Llama Drama

No one knew just how much drama a pair of llamas (or a really ugly dress) could cause until Thursday afternoon.

This cat was having a purr-fect day – you know, the kind filled with lots of catnip and tuna. Then, all of a sudden she realized she was being filmed without her consent.

On the unsuspecting day in question, the kitty, who belongs to YouTube user 1313EbutUoy, is busy grooming her fur toy near a window in her home. What she doesn't know is that her owner is capturing it for all posterity (a.k.a. the Internet).
