ANIMAL ANTICS

October 16th, 2008 by MANIA | No Comments | Leave a comment | Filed in Uncategorized |

Everyone knows killer whales (orcas) eat whales, seals, sea lions and fish, but betcha didn’t know they eat birds too! One crafty killer whale at Friendship Cove Marineland, Canada, has worked out how to chomp birds by regurgitating fish onto the surface of the water. Yumo! When the gullible seagulls come down to feast the feisty orca jumps up and eats them too! But that’s not the scary part….Can you believe he’s also taught the other orcas to do it too! Yowsers!

Don’t miss Weird Science in MANIA issue 93 for more ANIMAL ANTICS!

ALIEN HAND SYNDROME!

While you’re geeking like a gnat gone nuts in WEIRD SCIENCE, don’t forget to checkout our own brain-busting BETCHA TRIVIA in every issue of MANIA! Here’s one to get your grey matter gyrating, BLOGIYAKS!

Betcha didn’t know that Alien Hand Syndrome is a real medical condition! Peeps with AHS have no control over either one or both of their hands. We MANIACS can understand how that would be a major pain in the neck, especially if your hand suddenly decided to strangle you! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alien_hand_syndrome
