The Sarcastic Fringehead Fish

The Sarcastic fringehead, Neoclinus blanchardi, is a ferocious fish which has a large mouth and aggressive territorial behaviour from which they have been given their common name. Wikipedia

When unthreatened, the fringehead's visage is fairly unremarkable. But if a marine predator attempts to dislodge a fringehead from its crevasse, the fish will race into action, brandishing its frightening Predator-like mouth at the interloper.

Air Purifying House Plants that can fight Pollutants

We found this great post from NASA documenting 6 house plants that can improve indoor air quality. These great plants can fight air pollutants with ease.

Here's a list of plants that will help you breath better in your home.

Bamboo Palm: According to NASA, it removes formaldahyde and is also said to act as a natural humidifier.



Snake Plant: Found by NASA to absorb nitrogen oxides and formaldahyde.



Areca Palm: One of the best air purifying plants for general air cleanliness.



Spider Plant: Great indoor plant for removing carbon monoxide and other toxins or impurities. Spider plants are one of three plants NASA deems best at removing formaldahyde from the air.



Peace Lily: Peace lilies could be called the “clean-all.” They’re often placed in bathrooms or laundry rooms because they’re known for removing mold spores. Also know to remove formaldahyde and trichloroethylene.



Gerbera Daisy: Not only do these gorgeous flowers remove benzene from the air, they’re known to improve sleep by absorbing carbon dioxide and giving off more oxygen over night.

300 ft Wall in Bolivia has over 5000 Dinosaur Footprints


Believe it or not, this 300 foot wall in Bolivia has over 5000 dinosaur footprints!

Discovered dozen years ago near a cement factory in Sucre, Bolivia, this amazing limestone wall, 1.5 km (0.9 miles) long and over 100 meters high (328 ft), contains more than 5000 trails of dinosaurs.

To be exact, this wall has 462 distinct dinosaur tracks from at least 8 different species, totaling an incredible 5,055 individual dinosaur footprints.

They named it “The dinosaur dance floor”.

So how this 68 million year old wall formed? Ian Belcher of The Guardian explains:

“It was unique climate fluctuations that made the region a palaeontological honey pot. The creatures’ feet sank into the soft shoreline in warm damp weather, leaving marks that were solidified by later periods of drought. Wet weather then returned, sealing the prints below mud and sediment. The wet-dry pattern was repeated seven times, preserving multiple layers of prints. The cherry on the cake was added when tectonic activity pushed the flat ground up to a brilliant viewing angle – as if nature was aware of its tourism potential.”

Unusual bird called Potoo

Wow! This crazy and weird looking bird is called Potoo. Commonly found in Costa Rica, these birds fly at night and feed on large insects.





According to Wikipeda, Potoos are a group of near passerine birds related to the nightjars and frogmouths. 

These are nocturnal insectivores which lack the bristles around the mouth found in the true nightjars.

They hunt from a perch like a shrike or flycatcher. During the day they perch upright on tree stumps, camouflaged to look like part of the stump. The single spotted egg is laid directly on the top of a stump.

Health Benefits of Banana

If an Apple a day keeps the doctor away.. well, eating Banana everyday keeps Stroke away!

A recent study suggests that eating three bananas a day cuts the risk of stroke by 21 percent. So what's in a banana? The miracle ingredient is potassium, which reduces blood pressure, thus combating a leading cause of stroke.

Banana contains three natural sugars (sucrose, fructose and glucose) combined with fiber, gives an instant, sustained and substantial boost of energy. Research has proven that just two bananas provide enough energy for a strenuous 90-minute workout. No wonder the banana is the number one fruit with the world's leading athletes. But energy isn't the only way a banana can help us keep fit. Bananas can also help overcome or prevent a substantial number of illnesses and conditions, making it a must to add to our daily diet.

Here are great reasons to include banana in your daily diet!

As an excellent source of potassium, bananas help maintain proper blood pressure and heart health. In addition, the potassium in bananas will give you a much-needed energy boost while minimize muscle cramping.

Adding a banana to your diet each day can help prevent illnesses such as heart disease, while also preventing a thinning of the bones due to a high-salt diet.

The real standout nutrient found in bananas is vitamin B6, which reduces swelling that can lead to many obesity and diet-related illness that include heart disease, type II diabetes and even obesity. Vitamin B6 protects your body against infection and disease by aiding the production of white blood cells.

Add one banana a day to your diet to improve brain functioning and ensure a properly functioning nervous system.

The fiber content in bananas contribute to good health by aiding regular digestion and keeping blood sugar low so you don't choose a high-calorie snack when hunger strikes. 

Finally, because fiber is so satisfying, enjoying a banana prior to a meal can prevent overeating that leads to weight gain.
