“…But do you recall? The most famous reindeer of all…Shooter The Good Deed Reindeer!”

Err!

OK, so he may not be the most famous, but he certainly is the most thoughtful and service oriented toward rodent-kind.

Shooter the Good Deer Reindeer

Shooter, resident of the Pocatello Zoo in Idaho, was seen by zoo staff awkwardly handling his water trough. The large animal, which at times can be a bit overbearing for many of the staffers, eventually was able to dip his head and gently retrieve a rat from his barrel.

REINDEER SAVES RAT

ASU based in Phoenix AZ awards this Cockroach the top 10 new species award. The Leaproach is the only known roach that can actually jump. Watch the slow motion video of this newly discovered species:

Wheweeee… now that is some good hopping.

What is curious is that the guy that discovered them claims: “The jumping motion likely didn’t evolve to avoid predators, although that may be a benefit. More likely, says Picker, it helps leaproaches spread out to find mates and track down their favorite food: Protein-packed grasshopper poop”

Hmmm… how does he know that it’s not a defensive evolution? And how can he be certain that they didn’t just pick up some super grasshopper poop laced with toxic grasshopper gene’s along the way? Perhaps the real story hear is that we now have evidence that Spider-man could actually have a plausible story line. Well that is, if Spider-man ate spider poop. “You are what you eat.”… “You eat poop for breakfast?”

Someone please call in the Phoenix Roach Control guys before I hurt myself!
