Quote:
A Chinese zoo's supposed "African lion" was exposed as a fraud when the dog used as a substitute started barking.

The zoo in the People's Park of Luohe, in the central province of Henan, replaced exotic exhibits with common species, according to the state-run Beijing Youth Daily.

It quoted a customer surnamed Liu who wanted to show her son the different sounds animals made -- but he pointed out that the animal in the cage labelled "African lion" was barking.

Default Got Goats ...

Spontaneous goat manure fire stinks up Vt. town
From Associated Press
August 22, 2013 3:48 PM EST
WINDSOR, Vt. (AP) — A pile of goat manure spontaneously caught fire, spreading stench and wrinkling noses through a Vermont town but causing no damage, officials said.

The odor evoked "a damp kind of burning leaves or brush fire," Windsor Town Manager Tom Marsh said.

A worker on her way to milk goats discovered the fire in the 120-cubic-yard manure pile around 3 a.m. Wednesday, said George Redick, owner of the 800-goat Oak Knoll Dairy. He and others put out the flames with water from a hose but the pile continued to smolder. He planned to call the fire department later in the morning, but firefighters were already searching for the source of the smell by 6:30 a.m.

Marsh said he could smell the fire at his hilltop home five miles away. He called it "a little disconcerting, because it was a very strong smell."

Redick says the manure would typically have been spread around the farm earlier in the year, but the rainy season and other factors kept that from happening.

He said he used to think spontaneous combustion was make-believe.

"Now I'm a believer," he said.

Default Snail's Pace or How to Waste Research Money...

Speed testing the nation's snails (UK)

23 August 2013 Last updated at 04:37 ET

Help Researchers have been fitting snails with LEDs and coating them with UV paint to study and raise awareness of their behaviour.

Slugs and snails are thought to carry a parasite that can cause a deadly condition in dogs, who become infected by accidentally eating the gastropods.

Dr Dave Hodgson admitted his snails were "not that fast" but could move quickly enough to explore the length of an average UK garden overnight.

Speaking about the discovery that the gastropods use each others' slime trails to move faster and more easily, he said: "It's like slipstreaming on a very slow scale."

3. Fill tank.


What's next?

Too complicated and expensive.

1) Put him back.

2) Screw the lid down

3) Hang "Out Of Order" sign on the door.

4) Wait.
