sasquatch in New Jersey and new species discovered

Sasquatch in New Jersey?
Bigfoot has a long history in Morris, Sussex counties
It was a crisp November morning in 1980 when Richard Biggins came face-to-face with what he believes was a Sasquatch. He was deer hunting with his father by the Walpack Inn in Sussex County.“It had snowed pretty good the past few days, so there were six to 10 inches on the ground,” Biggins recalled. “My father dropped me off and told me to walk into the woods almost to the base of the hill, wait 15 minutes, and then start walking to him to help push any deer toward him to shoot.”The hill being steep, Biggins slid down it. Five minutes into his wait, he could hardly believe his eyes.“I saw him walking down the hill on an angle, upright like a person!” Biggins said. “He looked like a human being with an ape head and had jet-black hair all over him. I had to take a double take on what I was seeing. His arms swung back and forth, and he had regular steps like a person on a spring walk.”

Blind cat fish species discovered
By Siva Parameswaran BBC Tamil Service
A new species of blind cat fish has been discovered by scientists working in south India. This, along with other new animals, were identified in an old deep well in the southern Indian state of Kerala. The new blind cat fish, which is blood red in colour, has an elongated body measuring about 3.8cm in length. The scientists say the find sheds light on hitherto unexplored subterranean habitats in India. The new species of blind cat fish has been named Horaglanis abdulkalami after former Indian President Dr APJ Abdul Kalam.It was meant as a tribute to his contributions to science and science education, the discoverers said. The unique character of H. abdulkalami is it's red blood colour. The scientists say the fish are able to feed on minute organic matter in the soil. Kerala's wetlands provide an ideal habitat for such animals. Species like the catfish are key to maintaining these ecosystems, since their faeces provide sustenance to other species.
