    It's a pathetic opener. It's almost as if he dived in quickly to stop someone else from stealing his idea, the ridiculously trousered toffee-nosed welsh buffoon. Never mind, skulldigger will be along in a moment to save the thread, just like he did the one on ruminants.
    Back off Margaret, you're on a sugar rush!

    Why would somebody steal his idea for a thread.

    Nobod would do that. Especially for something as mundane as this.

    Great idea for a thread, CMN! I don't know how you come up with this stuff, but please keep doing it!

    Let's start with...

    THE JAPANESE SPIDER CRAB





    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    The Japanese spider crab (Macrocheira kaempferi) is the largest crab alive; fully grown it can reach a leg span of almost 4 m (13 feet), a body size of up to 37 cm (15 inches) and a weight of up to 20 kg (44 pounds). The crab's natural habitat is on the bottom of the Pacific Ocean (some 300 m-400 m deep) around Japan, where it feeds on dead animals and shellfish. It is believed to have a life expectancy of up to 100 years.
    It is a particularly old species of crab, and it is often referred to as a living fossil. Currently, there is only one species of the Macrocheira genus, but there have been two reports of other, fossilized specimens.
    This particular type of crab is feared by some fishermen and sailors because some of the larger ones have been seen eating the flesh of drowned men.


    I had one of these for Christmas dinner 1993. Delicious it was.

    I like this one. Silly bloody thing it is.



    A semiaquatic egg-laying mammal (Ornithorhynchus anatinus) of Australia and Tasmania, having a broad flat tail, webbed feet, and a snout resembling a duck's bill. Also called duckbill, duck-billed platypus.

    The worlds biggest Dolphin is also fairly sweet:

    Alaskan King Crabs live in freezing waters.

    Spider crabs are just so big cause of the heat.

    Take them into the King Crabs territory and watch them shrivel up like an Ozzie's cock on a hot summers day.

    The letters DVD stand for Digital Video Disc- FICTION - You might assume that the V stands for Video but it does in fact stand for Versatile, and it gets that name from the versatility of DVDs with all the other features you can get on them like trailers, sound tracks, extra footage, weblinks and interviews.

    Duck billed platypuses are the only mammal in the world that lays eggs - FICTION - Another antipodean inhabitant, the echidna or spiny anteater also lays eggs, and belongs to the same group of mammals as platypuses, known as monotremes.

    Your nails grow about 10 mm a year - FACT - Your nails grow at about 10mm a year (although this varies between people) which is about the same rate at which the spreading of the earth’s crust from the middle of the Atlantic is pushing America and England apart.

    Rhinoceros horns are made of highly compacted hairs - FACT - Rhino horns are made of the same stuff as hooves and hair, with hair like strands compacted so closely together they form a very tough almost bone-like material.

    The American Island of Hawaii is made up of a volcano - FACT - Hawaii is actually a string of islands each of which is a volvano.

    The fastest cat in the world is a jaguar- FICTION - The fastest cat in the world is a cheetah which lives on the plains of Africa and can run up to 70 miles an hour but only for very short bursts (about 20 seconds) before their bodies start to overheat.

    Someone who suffers from Dendrophobia is afraid of broomsticks - FICTION - dendrophobics are frightened of trees !

    A blink lasts approximately 0.3 seconds - FACT - If you are driving at 60 miles per hour and you blink, you will be driving nearly ten metres blind!

    The Loggerhead turtle is the furthest migrating animal on earth, swimming up to 10 thousand miles each year between breeding grounds and feeding grounds in the Indian Ocean - FALSE - It is in fact the artic tern that migrates the longest distance and so enjoys the most daylight hours of any other animal. It breeds north of the Arctic circle and migrates southwards the entire length of the globe to the Antarctic pack ice, 11 thousand miles away.
    Duckbill fact it is not the only egg laying mammal

    Naked 'Tickler' Targeting Sleeping Elderly Women
    Police: Man Tickling Toes With Feather Or Fingers, Then Fleeing

    POSTED: 4:35 pm EDT July 21, 2005
    UPDATED: 1:29 pm EDT July 22, 2005
    Investigators in New Smyrna Beach, Fla., are warning homeowners about a naked man who has broken into at least seven homes and tickled sleeping elderly women with a feather or fingers, police told Local 6 News.


    "This is truly a bizarre case," Local 6 News reporter Tarik Minor said. "A naked man is breaking into elderly women's homes, hiding at the foot of their beds, pulling back their covers and tickling their feet and running away."

    Police said a man with a pony tail broke into two homes in the Sea Woods community this week between 2 a.m. and 4 a.m.

    One of the victims, a 73-year-old woman, said the naked man tickled her toes and then ran out of the house.

    "This is truly a bizarre case," Local 6 News reporter Tarik Minor said. "A naked man is breaking into elderly women's homes, hiding at the foot of their beds, pulling back their covers and tickling their feet and running away."

    Police are worried that the man is enjoying the shock value factor of tickling the elderly women and will continue the attacks.

    "It's terribly shocking," neighbor Mary Oliver said. "I think about it and a couple of times I woke up and couldn't help looking down to the foot of the bed and wondering if somebody is there ready to play with my toes. It's funny but it's not funny."

    Investigators believe the tickler lives in New Smyrna Beach but they do not have a good description of the man.

    The same man is suspected of breaking into homes last summer and tickling elderly women, according to the report.

    Police are warning residents to be alert and take precautions to secure windows and doors.

    If you have any information concerning this crime, you are urged to call Crimeline at (800) 423-TIPS.

    Watch Local 6 News for more on this story.
    See this would make a good thread.

    Better than sea creatures (which is good really shhhh)

    The Giant Clam


    giant clam, common name for the largest bivalve mollusk in the world, Tridacna gigas, also known as the bear's paw clam. The giant clam may weigh over 500 lb (225 kg) and attain a length of over 4 ft (120 cm). The heavy shell is coarsely fluted and toothed. Giant clams are found in the South Pacific and Indian oceans, especially in the Great Barrier Reef. They lie with the hinge downward in the coral reefs, usually in shallow water. The adductor muscles, which cause the shell to close, are a source of food for people of the South Pacific. The shell closes very slowly; stories of human beings trapped within giant clams have never been substantiated. Small giant clam shells have been used as birdbaths and baptismal fonts. An interesting symbiosis occurs between a unicellular green alga (Zooanthella) and the clam. The algae live in the tissues of the clam's siphon and mantle; they are able to obtain the sunlight needed for photosynthesis because the clam lies with its valves opening upward and part of the thick, purple mantle extruding over the shell. In addition, there are crystalloid vesicles on the mantle surface that let in sunlight, thus allowing the algae to live deep within the tissues. The clam uses the algae as a supplementary or perhaps even a major source of food. Tridacna gigas is classified in the phylum Mollusca, class Pelecypoda or bivalvia, order Eulamellibranchia, family Tridacnidae.
