Im sorry but i rarely laugh out loud when i see an animal for the first time but this creature made me cry in hysterics! i mean poor creature! imagine looking like that. Actually it doesn't know what it looks like because it has no eyes.

so two questions.

1. What do you think of this find??

2. Im really wanting a good laugh. Do you have any more creature photos that are just hilarious? (not stupid cat photos) weird creatures.

Well, my first thoughts are that we see one snake entirely safe from being turned into a belt or a bracelet. At least no MAN is making that thing into a belt. Yikes!

Umm.. This goes in the category of things I've seen on the internet I wish I could un-see...but will have flash through my head many years from now, when I least want to recall.


S/F anyway for sheer weird factor

I started to read.."New species of Snake discovered." and I was already clicking the link.

As soon as I clicked, I read, "looks like a penis..." and I thought to myself... "What did I just get myself into?"

Well... I'd have to say, it looks like a penis... I'd imagine that this is the type of snake that convinced Eve to bite into that apple!

I had no idea that there was a family of blind snakes... that's awesome!

Except it's not a snake - it's an amphibian, looks similar to amphiumas.
No lungs, no scales, no snake.

I can only imagine the bizarre pornography that will result from the discovery of this snake.

Or if the Jackass guys make another movie, I'm sure they'll have more fun with this than they did with those sea creatures... forgot what they are called, the ones that squirt out white slimy threads when they are harassed.

"Atretochoana eiselti Specimens Found in Brasil"

Description

A. eiselti is the largest tetrapod to lack lungs, double the size of the next largest.[4] Caecilians such as Atretochoana are limbless amphibians with a snake-like body, marked with rings like that of earthworms.


en.wikipedia.org...



No snake, still looks like a penis...






Biology

Most caecilians are burrowers, but some, including Atretochoana's relatives, are largely aquatic.[10] Atretochoana is thought to be aquatic since its relatives and lungless salamanders, some of the few other lungless tetrapods, are[11] though the only other known species of lungless caecilian, Caecilita iwokramae, is terrestrial.[13] It was postulated to inhabit fast-flowing water.[6]

Due to the lack of information, it is classified as "Data Deficient" by the International Union for Conservation of Nature. It is thought to be uncommon, with a limited distribution.[2] It is likely a predator or scavenger,[6] and is thought to be viviparous.[1]

In June 2011, an amphibian was photographed near Praia de Marahú on Mosqueiro Island (near Belém, Brazil) that appeared to be A. eiselti, but was not positively identified. In 2011 six individuals were found in the Madeira River. Neither have cold fast-flowing water, as was originally thought. As there is less oxygen in warmer water, this makes its lack of lungs even more unusual, and the question of how it breathes has not yet been resolved.[12][14]

If you follow below the story of the humorous snake find you'll see another story involving the TSA at SFO. I've heard of the gentlemen involved in the story and sometimes people have really weird problems. It's a good laugh except it was on him and probably not funny at the time. My best,

Okay.

Just another typical thread on ATS.
