(no subject)

Someone suggested I crosspost this request to here.

I just spent an obscene amount of time looking through [info]wtf_inc's old posts, trying to find an entry where someone posted a picture of a gigantic spider-looking thing on a trash can. It looked like a huge, HUGE hermit crab without a shell.

The reason I'm actually looking for this is because someone commented with a picture of a huge fucking spider. I remember the girl said it was from Australia- it was a big black spider maybe with some white specks on it, and it took up like half the door it was perched on. I tried googling Australian spiders, but nothin' doin'.

If anyone could either find that wtf-post or a picture of the spider I'm talking about, it sure would be SWELL.

edit: Y'all are so whack. It turns out that comment was not made in that post, which makes me sad. I have no idea how I could have gotten them so mixed up. I haven't found the picture, so if anyone does, THX

New Zealand dolphin rescues beached whales

A dolphin has come to the rescue of two whales which had become stranded on a beach in New Zealand.

Conservation officer Malcolm Smith told the BBC that he and a group of other people had tried in vain for an hour and a half to get the whales to sea.

The pygmy sperm whales had repeatedly beached, and both they and the humans were tired and set to give up, he said.

But then the dolphin appeared, communicated with the whales, and led them to safety.

I saw this guy on some nature show and was blown away.

Taken from Wikipedia:

It is a medium-sized(42.5–66 cm in height), black plumaged heron with yellow legs and feet. It is found south of the Sahara Desert, including Madagascar, and prefers shallow open, waters, such as the edges of fresh water lakes and ponds...

The black heron has an interesting hunting method, called canopy feeding - it uses its wings like an umbrella, and uses the shade it creates to attract fish. Some black herons feed solitarily, while others feed in groups of up to 50 individuals, 200 being the highest number reported. The black heron feeds by day but especially prefers the time around sunset. It roosts communally at night, and coastal flocks roost at high tide. The primary food of the black heron is small fish, but it will also eat aquatic insects and crustaceans.
