    Cosmoderus femoralis is a type of armored cricket found in Cameroon. It looks both cuddly and terrifying at the same time.

    What's really unusual is that they were both thawed out on the same day and it just happened that it was both their birthdays!!!

    This ancient Hindu temple in India was all carved from a single piece of rock. It’s nearly equal to the Taj Mahal by size.

    A statue of Jesus in India mysteriously began dripping water in 2012. Worshippers declared it "Tears of Jesus" and began collecting and drinking the water. It was later discovered that the source of the water was a nearby clogged toilet.

    Giant tarantulas keep tiny frogs as pets. Insects will eat the burrowing tarantulas' eggs, so the spiders protect the frogs from predators, and in return, the frogs eat the insects.

    Isn't that how dogs came to be.

    10,000 years ago humans would leave food out for wolves, that would then stay within distance and protect the humans from other threats in order for easy food. They became domesticated, and hey presto 10,000 years later:

    On Japan's official surrender in World War Two, Canada signed in the wrong place, forcing every subsequent country to manually rewrite their names.

    Powerful photo of an anti-poaching ranger comforting one of the young gorillas he protects after its mother died. Fewer than 900 African mountain gorillas are still alive, due to poaching.
