Chilubi crocodile myths concerns ZAWA
By Henry Sinyangwe
THE Zambia Wildlife Authority says it is concerned with reports that members of the community in Lake Bangweulu of Chilubi Island are spreading myths that accuse people of transforming into crocodiles and terrorising the community.
According to a statement released by ZAWA public relations officer Readith Muliyunda on Friday, the authority was aware that the Island had been experiencing numerous cases of crocodiles attacking and killing people in the area due to the reptiles' increase in population and the widespread ignorance on crocodile behaviour.

First venomous crustacean found
Experts have found the first venomous crustacean - a centipede-like creature that lives in underwater caves. The blind "remipede" liquefies its prey with a compound similar to that found in a rattlesnake's fangs.It lives in underwater caves of the Caribbean, Canary Islands and Western Australia, feeding on other crustaceans.The venom contains a complex cocktail of toxins, including enzymes and a paralysing agent.

Oarfish washes up in Oceanside
By Susan Shroder
— For the second time in a week, a rare serpent-like oarfish has surfaced in Southern California, this one on Friday at Oceanside Harbor. Beachgoers who saw the carcass wash up on the north side of the south Oceanside jetty, off the 1200 block of North Pacific Street, called police about 5 p.m., Oceanside police Officer Mark Bussey said. A caller told police he thought it was a whale. Bussey and other officers responded as curious onlookers gathered around the silvery creature. At one point, about 50 to 75 people were there, Bussey said.

This is the second Oar Fish washed up. Whats going on under the ocean? Large predator perhaps or underwater earthquake?

Jersey's place in Neanderthal history revealed in study
A study on a Jersey site that revealed a significant piece of late Neanderthal history has been published. Scientists working on an archaeological dig in St Brelade said teeth found at La Cotte suggest Jersey was one of the last places Neanderthals lived. The team of British archaeologists have unearthed items which show the presence of Stone Age hunters at the headland. They said the finds were helping scientists understand more about the early relatives of modern humans. Digging for archaeological remains The site contains the only known late Neanderthal remains from North West Europe A large portion of the site contains sediments dating to the last Ice Age, preserving 250,000 years of climate change and archaeological evidence.

I wonder what else may have lasted past its extinction day on the island? They may find some interesting stuff .
