    Scientists make amazing discovery of statue like dinosaur fossil

    A fossil so well preserved that it looks like a statue is being unveiled today at a museum in Canada. The 110 million-year-old nodosaur fossil, dubbed the 'four legged tank' was discovered by a miner in a find so rare, it's being described as like winning the lottery'. The armoured plant-eater is the best preserved fossil of its kind ever found, according to reports in National Geographic. It was found by Shawn Funk, when he was digging at the Millenium Mine near Fort McMurray in northern Alberta, Canada, on March 21, 2011. He hit something which seemed out of place from the surrounding rock, and decided to take a closer look. The fossil he uncovered was sent to the Royal Tyrrell Museum of Paleontology. They spent the next six years working on uncovering the beast within the 2,500-pound (1,100 kg) lump of earth. According to the museum, it is the best preserved armoured dinosaur in the world, including skin and armour, and is complete from the snout to hips. It took over 7,000 hours to prepare this specimen for research and display. After all that hard work, the finished result is now ready to be unveiled. And it reveals how the ancient creature used scaly armour to defend itself. Speaking to National Geographic, paleobiologist Jakob Vinther, from the University of Bristol, said: '[It] might have been walking around a couple of weeks ago. 'I've never seen anything like this.' The fossil is a newfound species of nodosaur, which lived midway through the Cretaceous period, between 110 million and 112 million years ago. The creatures were around 18 feet (five metres) long on average, and weighted up to 3,000 pounds (1,300 kg). It featured two 20-inch-long spikes which protruded from its shoulders. The researchers believe that the this armored plant-eater lumbered through what is now western Canada, until a flooded river swept it into open sea. But the dinosaur's undersea burial preserved its armor in exquisite detail. The fossilised remains of this particular specimen are so well preserved that remnants of skin still cover bumpy armour plates along the dinosaur's skull. As Michael Greshko wrote for National Geographic, such level of preservation 'is a rare as winning the lottery.' 'The more I look at it, the more mind-boggling it becomes. 'Fossilized remnants of skin still cover the bumpy armor plates dotting the animal's skull. 'Its right forefoot lies by its side, its five digits splayed upward. 'I can count the scales on its sole. ' Caleb Brown, a postdoctoral researcher at the museum, told the writer 'We don't just have a skeleton. 'We have a dinosaur as it would have been.' The researchers say it may even have more to give. Its skeleton, for example, remains mostly obscured in skin and armor. However, reaching the dinosaur’s bones would require destroying its outer layers. CT scans funded by the National Geographic Society have revealed little, as the rock remains stubbornly opaque. The exhibit will now form part of The Royal Tyrrell Museum’s new exhibit, Grounds for Discovery, in Drumheller, Alberta. 'Visitors will explore the personal stories and exceptional specimens that have been discovered as a result of the Museum’s collaboration with numerous industries such as housing and road construction, mining, wind turbine development, and oil and gas. 'New discoveries and a new species of dinosaur will be revealed,' it says of the exhibit.

    Bear makes a break for it after getting locked inside family's SUV

    A couple in Roanoke, Virginia, nearly caught themselves in a grizzly situation. Ryan and Marybeth McClanahan were at home on Thursday morning, when they heard their car horn honking. They came out to discover it was a bear cub sitting in the front seat of their SUV. The bear had locked itself inside the car - reportedly looking for snacks - before law enforcement were called to the scene to allow the bear to escape.

    Kayaker paddles for his life as he is chased by the huge reptile

    A kayaker was caught on video attempting to out-paddle an alligator in Mobile Bay near Spanish Fort, Alabama. The heart-stopping footage which lasts just 15 seconds, was caught on camera by Shannon Collins. It has been viewed nearly 270,000 times since it was posted on Sunday. Shannon said that she was eating at a restaurant when the man in the kayak appeared. Following just feet behind, an alligator can be seen stealthily approaching. The kayaker begins to paddle faster as the deadly reptile gets closer. Eventually the man paddles out of view and it is not clear what happens to him. 'When you really really really don't want to tip over your kayak...' Shannon wrote on her Facebook page. She later added some context to the gripping video clip stating that the gator was simply just hanging out in the reeds until the man in the kayak got closer and lingered for a few minutes. As the man hovered in the water, it was long enough to tempt the gator to leave its hiding place and follow the man in the kayak. Shannon said that she then spoke with the man once he had made it back to shore. 'The kayaker was an avid outdoors-man who was used to seeing lots of gators,' she wrote. 'He was very nonchalant when we talked to him at the shore...not at all panicked (like I would have been!).'

    He was fleeing a predator, but this kangaroo found himself in deeper trouble when he lost his way in the sea. Footage shows two men rescuing the roo, named Skippy, after he took a dip to escape a dingo on Seventeen Seventy beach in Northern Queensland. Skippy is seen looking soaked and startled among the waves as the two men calm him and pull him from harm’s way. The men, from Discovery Coast Snake Catchers, are seen approaching the roo from behind, grabbing his tail and taking him to shore. The kangaroo is understood to have suffered bite wounds and exhaustion but is now being nursed back to health by wildlife carers. The video has drawn more than 9,000 views on Facebook page and praise for the pair’s work in rescuing the roo. ‘What were his injuries?’ wrote one commenter. ‘Bite marks around upper tail and very exhausted and stressed. He should be fine with time to heal. ‘So glad to hear that Skippy is in good hands’ wrote one commenter.’

  • Baby Buffalo Shows Elephant Who's Boss 00:30

    Baby Buffalo Shows Elephant Who's Boss

    A brave little buffalo decided to show one massive elephant who ruled in this neighborhood. The result… one very shocked and puzzled elephant! Captured by 29 year old Financial Advisor, Andrew Cohen, on the H1-6 about 5km from Mopani camp. As soon as the sighting played out, Andrew and Candice decided to upload it to our partner program, one can even hear the words “I’m going to post this on to Kruger Park Sightings”. Andrew told LatesSightings.com the story: “We were going for our late afternoon drive while taking it very slowly when we came up to a reservoir and decided to stop and watch for a while. We saw a buffalo cow walking out from behind the bush towards the waterhole, and in tow was her brand new little calf following diligently behind her. We then noticed the ellie coming from the left-hand side towards the mom and baby buffalo. It seemed as if he wanted to interact with them both, but this baby wasn’t having any of it! As soon as the young buffalo caught glimpse of the elephant, he charged towards him and had the ellie pedaling backward and trumpeting. It was a very special sighting to see because he could have easily hurt that baby buffalo. It was almost as though he sensed that this was an innocent newborn and that it didn’t mean any harm. Initially, we were shocked because we thought the calf was going to be crushed by the elephant, but as it all unfolded, our emotions turned to laughter because of the fact that the elephant just wanted to get away from this little guy. The sighting ended when the elephant ran away into the bush, and the cow and calf also went their separate ways. This must be the best sighting I have ever had in my life. You don’t get to see things like this often at all. It was an amazing highlight as we couldn’t stop talking about it for the rest of the holiday”. Interestingly enough, this was almost a follow-up/payback sighting to another video taken at this spot. Only, that video had an elephant stabbing and killing a buffalo! Watch it here and give us your thoughts on the difference between the two.

    Terrifying moment a mountain biker is chased by a BEAR as he rides through a forest

    This is the terrifying moment a bear chased down a cyclist as they were riding along an isolated forest path. Scary footage, filmed on a helmet camera, shows the animal running up to the rider as he pedals past through woodland in Malino Brdo, Slovakia. After apparently pursuing him for a few moments, the bear turns round and slopes back into the trees. But he then briefly reappears, causing the cyclist behind, Dusan Vinzik, to shout a warning. Last week another bear gave scared an unsuspecting family. The black bear made a trip out of some nearby woods to visit the home of a family who had just finished baking brownies in Avon, Connecticut in the US. The mother said the huge mammal appeared on the decking and was banging at the back door, spending 30 minutes sniffing around before retreating back into the woods. She said she believes the smell of her baking got the bear's attention and that it was just after a snack.

    This is the insane moment a huge outraged ostrich starts a fearsome fight with an unsuspecting man. In the Northwest Province of South Africa, Tienie Van Wyk is about to be taught formidable lesson by a frenzied ostrich, who didn’t take kindly to the engineer’s presence. Standing in front of the boisterous bird, as it flares its wings in anger, suddenly Tienie is bowled to the floor by the incensed ostrich, who ploughs into him like a feathered freight-train. As Tienie is thrown backwards, the bird continues to maul the former ostrich farmer with a series of pecks and kicks, before thankfully being chased away by on-lookers. Tienie, from Brakpan, South Africa, who grew up on an ostrich farm, said: “I landed on a thorn bush and was covered in scratches, but other than that, luckily I was fine.

  • Freedom at last for orangutan locked in wooden box for two years 01:48

    Freedom at last for orangutan locked in wooden box for two years

    Kotap has spent the last two years of his life locked up in a box, listening to the world outside go by. When he was discovered, all he had for company was a plastic bottle and a straw. His only visitor was the man who kept him locked up. But now he has been set free from his one square metre box. Kotap is four years old and he was saved by the International Animal Rescue in Borneo. ‘His captor, a man named Baco, claimed to have been given the orangutan by some people he met in the village of Ketapang. ‘Baco had spotted the small baby ape in a cardboard box and agreed to take him home and look after him. However he soon became concerned that Kotap would disturb the neighbours and so built a cage for him at the front of his house. ‘He had fed Kotap on a diet of human food, including bread and rice. Baco claimed that the orangutan’s favourite meal was uncooked instant noodles, washed down with a sachet of sugary drink. ‘Officials from the forestry department (BKSDA) had visited the man in his home in Rabak village on a previous occasion but been unable to persuade him to surrender Kotap. ‘However, by taking the time to talk to him and explain the desperate plight of orangutans in Borneo, they convinced him that he must act in the best interests of the animal – and in compliance with the law – and hand Kotap over. ‘When the door of the box was opened and vet Uwi extended her hand to Kotap, at first he was frightened and ran to the back of the box where he couldn’t be reached. ‘After years in the darkness, he clearly found the sight and sound of the outside world quite terrifying.’ Uwi said: ‘Kotap was very stressed by all the strangers who gathered to see him when he was taken out of the box. He became nervous and aggressive which is not surprising. ‘So during the long journey back to the centre we kept people away from him so that he remained as quiet and calm as possible.’ Alan Knight, Chief Executive, said: ‘This poor orangutan had been kept alone in the dark for two long years. ‘He was deprived of everything that an orangutan needs to survive in the wild. At four years old, he should still be with his mother, learning from her how to climb and move through the forest, what foods to eat and what to avoid, and how to build a nest in the trees to sleep in each night. ‘Instead, Kotap lived a sad and solitary existence, unable to exercise or behave in any way like a wild orangutan. He was fed an unsuitable diet that could have made him seriously ill. Thankfully now he will join other rescued orangutans at our centre and be given a chance of returning to the forest where he belongs.’ Karmele Llano Sanchez, Programme Director, said: ‘It’s high time people realised that, if they keep breaking the law by capturing orangutans and keeping or selling them as pets, then the species will soon become extinct. ‘Anyone who is offered an orangutan should certainly not buy it. They should immediately contact the authorities and report the person trying to sell it. And if people are not willing to cooperate by surrendering the orangutan and persist in breaking the law, then the necessary action must be taken to enforce it.’

    Stephan Greyvenstein was traveling in the Kruger National Park when he came across this sighting. He spotted an injured kudu bull next to the road; “we don’t know how it got injured. Then suddenly, right out of the corner of our eyes, we spotted 2 hyenas. These hyenas saw the kudu and gave chase. They chased it right in front of the car before bringing it to the ground and starting to eat it alive." “While all of this was happening, my battery went flat and I, unfortunately, couldn’t finish filming the sighting. The time was running out for us to be out and about before the gates closed for the day, so we had to leave these hyenas to enjoy their meal alone.”

    Struggling deer trapped in mound of mud rescued by digger

    This is the heart-warming moment a little deer was rescued after becoming stuck in the mud. The pint-sized creature was stuck in heavy slime and appeared to have exhausted itself trying to escape from the muddy hole. Quick-thinking rescuers used a large digger to scoop up the creature, which was already half-submerged in the mud. The operator has to be extremely careful that the massive claws of the digger don't hurt the fawn, which is hard to see in the mud. Luckily however the rescue mission proceeds exactly as planned, and the little deer is deposited down on more solid ground. The fawn looks a bit confused as she stands up with a wobble - her muscles weak from having sat down for so long. One of the rescuers says: 'There you go! Run baby run!' The deer takes a confused look back at her filmers, clearly a bit befuddled on how it got in and out of this mess. It then takes a few tentative steps before looking to make its way out of the quarry.

    Wild Dogs vs Cheetah Standoff Over Kill

    "Grant shared the video with LatestSightings.com and told us more about his find: “We had come across 3 cheetah brothers that had just killed a wildebeest. We were enjoying this incredible sighting since cheetahs are an extremely rare sighting in the Pilanesberg. We noticed how the cheetahs seemed very skittish and nervous, they had obviously sensed something was out of place. Then we excitedly caught a glimpse of an approaching pack of wild dogs. They started to approach from the right-hand side, we couldn't believe it. The dogs had noticed the 3 cheetahs on the kill and knew that this was an easy opportunity to get a free meal. The wild dogs started to intimidate the cheetahs and, after a while successfully chased the cheetahs away and finished off the kill in their seemingly brutal way. It was incredible to witness such an event. The power of the wild dogs taunting the cheetahs and the noises that the dogs were making were so overpowering and haunting, everything was spine chilling. We were so blessed to be at this sighting. It was life changing. It had taken us 15 years to see the wild dogs in Pilanesberg."

    Animal lover smashes car window to free a dog dying in the heat

    A Good Samaritan smashed a stranger's car window to free a trapped dog that was dying in the heat while its owner went for pizza. Clive Oxley, 49, went to the rescue of the stricken springer spaniel after a friend spotted it locked in a tourist's 4x4 in a seaside car park in St Ives, Cornwall. Mr Oxley, who runs a property maintenance business, saw the panting dog struggling to breathe - so smashed a rear side window of the Kia and rescued it. The owner returned soon after and screamed when she saw police by her car, before admitting she had left the dog for an hour and a half while she went to Pizza Express. Mr Oxley, 49, said: 'There is no reason at all to leave a dog in that state. But for something as insignificant as going for a pizza is unbelievable. 'The woman came back and started screaming at me. She said she'd just been to Pizza Express. By the time she got there the police were there too. 'When she came back she said "oh God, my dog. It is lucky it is not dead". I told her 'too right you are lucky it is not dead.' 'She was a holidaymaker and was really embarrassed. She claimed she'd only gone for an hour and a half. Inside it was estimated to be 125F (52C). 'That poor dog was absolutely boiling in a tiny cage with no water and no air. You couldn't even touch the roof of the car, it was flipping boiling.' Mr Oxley, who filmed the rescue on his mobile phone, added: 'I had to smash the window and get the dog out. I would do what I did again any time if I needed to. 'I would tell anyone in my situation - just smash it and get it out. It was virtually breathless when we finally got it out. It wouldn't have had long left. 'She got the dog and walked off down the road. Ten minutes later we saw her husband driving his car to the police station.' The video was filmed last Friday around noon – on a day when temperatures reached about 15C (59F) in the South West. Devon and Cornwall Police said people had the right to break into a car if they believe a dog is in distress. A spokesman said: 'With warm weather, we always see a rise in the number of reports of dogs being left in cars. 'The temperature can rise very quickly inside a car during the summer months, dogs do not have the ability to cool themselves down and therefore can suffer from heatstroke which can be fatal. 'Police have the right to break the window of a car to free the animal if they believe that a dog is in distress. 'If a member of public sees a dog in a car in a warm day please call the police immediately and we will advise from there.'
