Australian Woman Discovers 2ft Earthworm

It would have to be a pretty big early bird to get that worm!

An Australian woman discovered a gigantic 2ft earthworm after it was driven above ground by torrential rains.

Kelli Mace posted a photo on Facebook of her holding the huge creature with two sticks after it emerged from the earth around Tamborine Mountain, Queensland, and it was soon picked up by Australian news outlets.

The area, which is covered in rain forest, is known for the massive species of worm, known as Digaster longmani, and which can grow up to 3ft long.

Usually they remain deep underground, but heavy rain across the Gold Coast area last week has driven the creatures from their borrows.

The region on the east coast of Australia saw particularly heavy rainfall on Friday when over an inch fell in 36 hours.

Artist Leonardo da Vinci produced two of the most famous paintings in history, “The Last Supper” and the “Mona Lisa.” But he was also passionate about medical discoveries and military inventions, some of which were centuries ahead of their time. Walter Isaacson, author of bestselling biographies of Steve Jobs, Albert Einstein and Benjamin Franklin, has written a new book about da Vinci, and he talks with Dr. Jon LaPook about why this Renaissance Man’s mind and curiosity were so extraordinary.

Bull-Leaping Is 100 Percent Insanity

We’ve all heard of bull riding and bullfighting. But bull-leaping? That’s a whole new level of courage (craziness?). For Spaniard José Manuel Medina, however, bull-leaping, or “recorte,” is an adrenaline-filled way of life. In recorte competitions, bull-leapers invite charging bulls toward them in order to evade the animals via side-steps, flips and acrobatic turns. A panel of judges scores their moves. Unlike bullfighting, no harm is done to the animals.

Enter the ring … if you dare.

This incredible footage shows the moment a huge bird of prey swoops in to pick up a fishy dinner from a boat.

 
Ashton Philips caught the moment an Eagle swooped onto his fishing boat. He was fishing in British Columbia when the daredevil bird swooped down and grabbed a salmon he’d caught and then flew away.
