Man Finds Alligator Head While Walking Dog

A painter and decorator has described his shock at finding the severed head of an alligator while he was out walking his dogs in West Yorkshire. Peter Lumb, 59, of Huddersfield, found the skull and a section of the reptile’s jaw while he was walking his two border collies on a hillside in the Crosland Moor area.

The bones were checked out by experts at Manchester Museum, where his daughter Catherine works, and found to be that of an American alligator, officially an alligator mississippiensis, which is usually found in the south-eastern United States. Fragments of skin found with the bones indicated they had not been there long before they were discovered.

Describing his find, Mr Lumb said: ”I was taking my dogs for a walk, on to this hillside where I’ve taken them for years, and I think it was the dogs that sniffed them out.”I saw the jawbone and the skull next to it and took it home for the wife to have a look.”I was a bit shocked to find them, a bit taken aback. I was thinking ‘What the hell are they doing there?”’Mr Lumb and his wife, Linda, 59, discussed the possibility of the jaw section being that of a fox or a badger but decided the teeth were too sharp to be from either animal.

Owning An Animal Hybrid: What to Know

hybrid

Recently, eccentric model Bai Ling made headlines by adopting what she claimed was a cheetah/domestic cat hybrid, although experts agree that this would be impossible in nature. Most likely, what she had was a Savannah Cat. Still, people want to know how they can get their hands on their own hybrid pets. Well, be careful what you wish for; hybrid house pets can be a handful. Here is a quick overview of two popular hybrid animals.

The Savannah Cat: A cross between a serval and a house-cat, the Savannah cat is much larger than the typical house-cat, and can reach up to 30 pounds for a healthy adult male. They often have leopard spots, but can vary in color wildly, a symptom of hybridization. Similar to dogs in temperament, Savannahs are extremely loyal and affectionate, can be walked on a leash, and can even be trained to do tricks. They are intelligent and extremely curious, so you will have to cat proof your home.

The Wolf-Dog: With a similar appearance to an Alaskan Malamute, a wolf-dog is a cross between — what else? — a wolf and a dog. The dog half of the hybrid usually is wolf-like in appearance, i.e. shepherds, Malamutes, huskies, etc., resulting in varied coat patterns. The wolf-dog’s temperament is highly unpredictable, extremely curious, destructive and can often have aggressive traits.

If you want to adopt an animal like this, be sure you extensively research the requirements for adoption and care, as many owners give up on these animals when they become too much to handle.

Shark Midwife Gives Toothy C-Section

There’s another Octomom making headlines — but this time, she’s got serious teeth. Visitors to Kelly Tarlton’s Underwater World aquarium in New Zealand got a shock when they saw one shark attack another — and baby sharks swimming out of the gash left in her side.The mother, a school shark, was brought to the aquarium after she was snared by fishermen, and aquarium staff had no idea she was pregnant, according to a press release issued by Underwater World.

When a broadnose sevengill shark took out some “normal seasonal aggression” on the expectant mother, it left a gouge big enough for the babies to swim free. Four tiny pups swam immediately out of the wound in their mom’s side. When staff treated the injured shark, they found four more babies alive inside.

“Ironically the fight their mother got into probably saved these pups’ lives! Had she given birth naturally, mostly likely at night, we probably wouldn’t have gotten to the pups in time to move them to a safe, predator-free area,” the aquarium’s curator, marine biologist Andrew Christie, said in a press release.
