Cat Human Sitting

Cats don't really have nine lives, but the main reason they received the reputation for reincarnation is their ability to jump and land. They are spotted climbing high trees, run in front of cars and jump from high places. Surely someone with only one, short life wouldn't leap about frantically, like a pogo stick with a death wish? Cats most certainly do. So an old housewives tale, based on the fact that Mr. Nibbles would jump from the top of the wardrobe and land on his feet, has persisted for hundreds of years.

Frog Rides Beetle

Hendy Mp, a talented wildlife photographer from Indonesia, managed to capture one of the strangest scenes you'll probably see in the natural world... a tree frog going for a wild rodeo ride on the back of a giant horned wood-boring beetle. To be more specific, this tree frog is of the Reinwardt's Flying Frog variety, a threatened species that can glide down from trees with the skin between its fingers and toes. He says: "It was such an amazing moment, the frog just saw the beetle and decided to crawl on top. It looked like the frog was a cowboy riding a bull and it even put its right leg in the air. The frog was on the beetle for five minutes and the insect was just happily running around." Continue reading for more pictures.

Frozen Sand

With the power of computers these days, it's hard to believe any photo is real, but this one, captured by photographer Joshua Nowicki, most certainly is. While walking the shore of Lake Michigan (St. Joseph area) last week, he stumbled upon dozens of small sand towers rising out of the beach, some over a 1-feet-tall. These layered creations are formed when blasts of wind slowly erode layers of frozen sand, much like how a river might slowly create a canyon. Continue reading for more pictures.

This uncommon condition usually results due to uneven melanin content. A number of causes are responsible, including genetic, such as chimerism, Horner's syndrome and Waardenburg syndrome. This is what a cat looks like with heterochromia. Continue reading for more.

When you film 80 extras lined up along a dirt road in an industrial area in France at 1000-frames-per-second, something magical happens: an entire 3.5-minute music video made from just 5-seconds of footage. Put simply, a car drove by at 31mph and filmed them engaging in a host of activities. French filmmaker Guillaume Panariello describes it as "the shortest shooting ever" and what unfolded as a "dreamlike mural." Sure, there were a few digital effects added later, but the ensuing "Unconditional Rebel" music video by French musician Siska is a conversation piece nonetheless.
