Check this one out.... A giant Golden Orb Weaver spider caught a chestnut-breasted mannikin bird in its web and has it for lunch.. and maybe for dinner or maybe have it for breakfast, lunch and dinner for weeks.
The photo was snapped in a backyard in Cairns, Queensland, Australia. That is one big spider! and that is one poor bird. How strong is the web of that spider that a bird could get caught in it and not able to escape?
"Normally they prey on large insects, it's unusual to see one eating a bird," (said head spider keeper Joel Shakespeare at the Australian Reptile Park.)
Mr Shakepeare told ninemsn he had seen golden orb weaver spiders as big as a human hand but the northern species in tropical areas were known to grow larger...
"(The spider) would not eat the whole bird," he told ninemsn.
"It uses its venom to break down the bird for eating and what it leaves is a food parcel," he said.
Have you ever signed up on those dating websites? How do you know that the person who's been matched to you has no criminal history? How do you know that the person who you will be going on date with will not do you harm? Will you compromise your safety just to see if that person is for real or not? You're on a date, and next thing you know the guy puts you in a situation where you could have avoided if the dating site you signed up for has done their homework.
Is there such a dating site? Yes there is. I'm talking about True.com. They are the only dating site who conducts criminal background screenings and Single Certification. They are also the only Internet dating and relationship site that is endorsed by Psychology Today®. Isn't that a relief? Don't tell me that's not a feature that you won't take advantage of. That's why millions of people have signed up on this dating and relationship site. I should mention that a friend of mine has signed up on this site and she tells me that having that criminal screening is what made her decide to try it because she has always been skeptical and scared in meeting men online. Who wouldn't be? Now a days, online predators are on an alltime high, so having such a benefit offered by the site is really the most sensible thing.
Why don't you give it a try? You can search for free. Who knows, True.com might find someone for you.
Before the season started, analysts predicted that the Dallas Cowboys would be the team to beat in the NFC despite losing to the NFL champs New York Giants who beat them in the first round of the playoffs last year. For the first three games of the 20008 season, the analysts seemed to be right on the money however, the mighty Cowboys now have a record of 4-3. They have lost 3 of their last 4 games. They recently got beat by the woeful St. Louis Rams by the score of 34-14. Tony Romo did not play due to a broken pinkie on his throwing arm that he sustained during another loss to the Arizona Cardinals.
The "very talented" Cowboys team should have not been beaten so badly. Their previous two losses to the Redskins and the Cardinals, were competitive and hard fought games, but this latest loss to the Rams was about as bad as I have seen them play. Sure, losing Tony Romo is a big blow to your offense, but they have to play through it. They have to come together. The defense only lost Adam "waste of money" Jones because of off-the field incident...again...., but still that's no excuse for giving up 34 points to the Rams. Surely the defense can muster some thing to pump up the "down" offense and give them a chance to win....or atleast make it a close and competitive game..but no, the entire team just fell apart.
Dallas Cowboys..... welcome to third place..! Get it together or your season is going to be over soon...!! Anyway, what do I care, I'm a Giants fan..GO GIANTS!!!!!
