Police say one of the world’s biggest bunnies has been stolen from its home in central England.

Darius, a Continental Giant rabbit, disappeared from his enclosure in a backyard in the village of Stoulton over the weekend, the West Mercia Police force said. They did not elaborate on why they thought it was a theft instead of an escape.


The force appealed for any information about or sightings of Darius, who is gray-brown and 129 centimeters (4 feet, 3 inches) long at full stretch. He holds the Guinness World Records citation for the world’s longest rabbit. Rabbits of his type are known to weigh about 15 to 20 pounds (7 to 9 kilograms).

Owner Annette Edwards, a large-rabbit breeder and model, urged the culprit or culprits to return Darius to his home 160 kilometers (100 miles) northwest of London, saying it was a “very sad day.”


She initially offered a 1,000 pound ($1,370) reward, but tweeted Tuesday: “Please Please I am so upset Can you bring my Darius back I am putting the reward up to 2,000 pounds ($2,748).”

It’s not unusual for rocks and other debris to crash through a windshield and injure a driver or passenger — but a turtle?


A 71-year-old woman riding with her daughter on Florida’s Interstate 95 suffered a gashed forehead Wednesday when a turtle smashed through the windshield of their car, striking her, the Daytona Beach News-Journal reports.


The daughter pulled over and got help from another motorist. According to a 911 recording, both were surprised by what they found.


“There is a turtle in there,” the man can be overheard saying.


“A turtle!” the daughter exclaimed. “An actual turtle?”

The gash drew a lot of blood, but the woman was not seriously hurt. The turtle was likely crossing the interstate and got knocked into the air by another vehicle.


“I swear to God this lady has the worst luck of anything,” the daughter told the 911 operator as she tended to her injured mother.


The turtle, on the other hand, had the best luck of anything — it just had a few scratches on its shell and was released back into the nearby woods, Port Orange police officer Andre Fleming said.

A Big Duck Named Long Boi Went Viral |interesting news|

The waterfowl made a splash on Twitter after someone made a false claim about him. But the tweets will still quack you up.


Long Boi the duck certainly is long, but he may not be the longest boi.


On Thursday a photo of a duck that lives near University of York in England — and dubbed Long Boi by some adoring students — went viral after a tweet claimed that he was “The tallest mallard duck to have ever lived (since records began).”


The claim, which seems to have stemmed from Reddit, is unfortunately not true, which Snopes was quick to point out. 


Long Boi is not a full mallard, according to the duck’s Instagram account; he is actually a cross between a mallard and an Indian Runner, which is a larger species of bird. The Twitter caption also claims that Long Boi stands over “1m tall (3.5ft)” tall. But the University of York students who run Long Boi’s Instagram account (who said they wanted to remain anonymous because “long boi is truly the star of the show”) told HuffPost via Instagram that they measured the fowl.

He is only 70 centimeters (about 28 inches) tall, according to the students. And sure, mallards are typically 24 inches in length, but Long Boi is half Indian Runner — and they grow to be about 32 inches high.


Snopes also found that there is no database that tracks the height of mallard ducks.

Yet, despite all this, people still had a lot of fun with Long Boi’s viral photo ― and the false information.


Long Boi has had a real underdog, er, underduck story as well. The students who run his fan account told HuffPost that Long Boi just appeared on campus a few years ago and they “believe he was abandoned here as an unwanted pet.”


“When we first saw him he didn’t really fit in with the other ducks and was shunned by them a bit,” they said.


The students said they began feeding him because he used to hang out near their dorms. And it seems like the nurturing helped. 


“Now he has really flourished and integrated with the others,” they told HuffPost. “He’s quite friendly and loves being fed by visitors ... in fact our on-campus shop even stocks bird seed specifically for all the waterfowl.”


Thanks to the bird’s stature and more outgoing personality, Long Boi became a sensation on campus. And in 2018, the duck got his own Instagram account.


“We thought it would be fun to share his photos on Instagram for others to see,” the students said. Now other Long Boi fans contribute their photos to the duck’s account.

Kangaroos can learn to communicate with humans similar to how domesticated dogs do, by using their gaze to "point" and ask for help, researchers said in a study published on Wednesday.


The study involved 11 kangaroos that lived in captivity but had not been domesticated. Ten of the 11 marsupials intently gazed at researchers when they were unable to open a box with food, according to the report. Nine alternately looked at the human and at the container, as a way of pointing or gesturing toward the object.


"We interpreted this as a deliberate form of communication, a request for help," Alan McElligott, the Irish researcher who led the study, told Reuters in a call from Hong Kong.

"Wild species are not really expected to behave as those subjects were, and that's why it is surprising."


The findings challenge the notion that only domesticated animals such as dogs, horses or goats communicate with humans, and suggests many more animals could grasp how to convey meaning to humans, the paper asserts.


"We've previously thought only domesticated animals try to ask for help with a problem. But kangaroos do it too," concluded co-researcher Alexandra Green from the University of Sydney.

 A 12-year-old Illinois boy said shortages of medical supplies during the COVID-19 pandemic inspired him to design his own ventilator using Lego pieces.


Anthony Hartman, a Winnetka seventh-grader, said he heard about projects to create ventilators to help offset shortages and decided to try to make one himself using a Lego Mindstorm EV3 robotics kit.


"I saw a bunch of universities making respirator units that were cheaper and more affordable. I wanted to make my own version with a twist, which was the Lego piece," Anthony told WLS-TV.


Anthony entered his creation, which he dubbed the EVentilator2020, into the Kids Think Tank contest. He did not win the competition, but he earned praise from the event organizers.


Anthony said he hopes to partner with Lego to make his EVentilator2020 available to medical professionals in rural areas.

A company announced it is seeking "nap reviewers" to get paid $1,500 each to take daily naps for 30 days and document the experience.


EachNight.com, which offers comparisons of mattresses, bedding and other items, said it is researching the "pros and cons of napping" and is seeking a team of "nap reviewers" to document their mid-day rests.


"Over the course of 30 days, our dedicated nappers will be required to take part in a variety of experiments testing out theories such as the best nap duration for feeling refreshed, the effects of napping on overall levels of fatigue, and the effects of napping on memory, motivation and productivity," the company said.


The nap reviewers will be required to participate in video calls before and after each nap to document the experience.


Applications for the five positions are being accepted through May 31 on the company's website.

 A North Carolina man broke a Guinness World Record when he performed 3,050 pushups in one hour, but he fell short in his attempt at a 12-hour pushup record.


TShane Johnson, a U.S. Marines veteran from Pineville, started his record attempt by performing 3,050 pushups in an hour, breaking the previous record of 2,900.


Johnson kept going for 11 more hours, attempting to break the record for most pushups in 12 hours, which as stood at 19,325 for more than 30 years.


The veteran finished his 12-hour pushup marathon with 16,400, falling short of the second record.


"[There] were some small little things we didn't account for, as far as how much time between breaks and of course, just the amount that it takes on your body to do that long after completing the first world record, but it was a win," Johnson told WRAL-TV.


Johnson's record attempts raised money for the National Purple Heart Honor Mission.

A South African gymnast broke his own Guinness World Record by performing 36 consecutive one-handed backflips.


Zama Mofokeng, 31, a self-taught gymnast from Thembisa, originally set the Guinness World Record for one-handed backflips in 2017, when he completed 24 of the acrobatic maneuvers in a row with under three seconds in between flips.


Mofokeng broke his own record in 2018, when he managed 34 flips, and again this year, when he completed 36 flips in a row.


The gymnast said he started doing flips when he was 10 years old, and had to switch to one-handed flips when he fractured his hand at the age of 13.

A Canadian telecommunications company said about 900 customers in a British Columbia town lost Internet service when beavers chewed through a fiber cable.


Telus said customers in Tumbler Ridge lost service at 4 a.m. Saturday, and repair crews discovered beavers had chewed through an important fiber cable at multiple points.


Liz Sauve, a spokeswoman for Telus, said in an email to CBC News that it was a "very bizarre and uniquely Canadian turn of events."


"Our team located a nearby dam, and it appears the beavers dug underground alongside the creek to reach our cable, which is buried about 3 feet underground and protected by a 4.5-inch thick conduit. The beavers first chewed through the conduit before chewing through the cable in multiple locations," Sauve wrote.


Repair crews captured photos showing pieces of Telus equipment being used by the beavers to build their dams.


The company said Internet service to Tumbler Ridge was restored fully by Sunday afternoon.

 Virginia Girl Scout council is offering a unique spin on contact-free cookie delivery by having the boxes distributed via drone.



The Girl Scouts of Virginia Skyline Council teamed up with Wing, a subsidiary of Google parent company Alphabet Inc., to offer drone delivery for Girl Scout cookies in Christiansburg.


"Even with loosening COVID restrictions, the traditional method of selling cookies outside of grocery stores or shops is difficult this year, and sales are down about 50% from prior years," Lia Reich, Wing global communications lead, told USA Today. "It was a natural fit to partner with the Girl Scouts to help out in this situation."


Christiansburg customers can order their drone deliveries through the Wing app or website through the end of May. The company said it is committed to delivering at least 3,000 boxes of cookies, but the number could increase based on demand.


Girl Scouts of Virginia Skyline Council CEO Nikki Williams said the Girl Scouts still prepare the orders themselves and have the opportunity to learn about drone technology, but they do not pilot the unoccupied vehicles.


"I expect that the future is going to have an opportunity for drones to be delivering to everyone across the country," she said. "I think this is just a really great microcosm as what that can look like as we prep for the future."

Police and animal control officers were called to a bridge in Texas to remove an unusual traffic hazard -- an alligator sunning itself in the road.


The Harris County Precinct 8 Constable's Office, the Baytown Police Department and Texas State Police animal control officers responded in the late morning Wednesday to reports of an alligator blocking Highway 14 traffic on the Fred Hartman Bridge.


Responders said it took five officers to wrestle the gator, bind it with tape and load the reptile into a pickup truck.


The gator was transported to the water under the bridge and set free, authorities said.


The La Porte Police Department said alligators have been known to wander into the road in the past, but Wednesday's incident was the first time in recent memory that one of the animals has been seen on the bridge.

A California family said they are dealing with an unusual infestation after hundreds of migratory birds swooped down their chimney and took up residence inside the house.


A woman who asked to be identified only as Kerri said she returned to her Torrance home with her husband and their child April 21 to discover birds flying around inside the house.


Kerri captured video showing dozens of birds swooping down into the home through her chimney.


"It's so hard to explain. If you don't see it with your own eyes, you'd never believe it," Kerri told KTLA-TV.


Kerri said the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Office referred her to county animal control, but officials told her to just leave her doors open and allow the birds to leave on their own.


She said the birds don't appear to want to leave, and have been making a mess of the home.


"You couldn't walk in any spot in the living room, the kitchen and the hallway without stepping on bird droppings," Kerri said.


The birds are believed to be Vaux's swift, a species known for roosting in chimneys in large groups.


Firefighters in Montecito, Calif., responded to a similar problem Sunday evening when a homeowner reported about 1,000 birds that swooped into their chimney and became stuck behind the fireplace cover.


The Montecito Fire Department said the birds were left overnight to see if they would fly back up the chimney on their own, but returned Monday to find that the birds hadn't moved.


Firefighters and animal control officers ended up designing a chute system to allow the birds to make their way from the fireplace to the back door.

A pair of Colombian farmers are now Guinness World Record holders after they grew a massive mango weighing 9.36 pounds.


German Orlando Novoa Barrera and Reina Maria Marroquin grew the mango at San Martin farm in the Boyaca area of Guayata.


The pair said they could tell early on that the mango was growing much larger than the other fruits on their tree. Barrera said his daughter, Dabegy, suggested the mango could be a new world record after it was harvested and weighed.


The 9.36-pound mango took the title of the world's heaviest from a 7.57-pound mango grown in 2009 in the Philippines.


"Our goal with this Guinness World Records title is to show to the world that in Colombia we are humble, hardworking people who love the countryside and that the land that is cultivated with love produces great fruits. In addition, this represents in times of pandemic a message of hope and joy for our people," Barrera told Guinness World Records.


Barrera and Marroquin said they ended up serving the mango to their family.


"It was very delicious and healthy inside, but before that, we made a mold out of it to make a replica and donate it to the municipality to be recorded in history," Barrera said.

A 12-year-old North Carolina boy who took a few extra classes in his spare time during the COVID-19 pandemic is now preparing to graduate high school and college in the same week.


Mike Wimmer, 12, of Salisbury, will graduate Rowan-Cabarrus Community College with an associate's degree May 21 and will graduate Concord Academy High School just seven days later May 28.


Wimmer has a 4.0 GPA at the college and a 5.45 GPA in high school, earning him the role of his class valedictorian.


"I went through all of the grades in school at a faster pace," Wimmer told WCNC-TV. "I'm like a sponge, I take in knowledge very fast."


Wimmer said he had some extra time during the COVID-19 pandemic and discovered that if he added just a couple of extra classes he could graduate from both schools at the same time. He ended up completing the equivalent of two years of high school and two years of community college classes in a single year.


The 12-year-old said his lifelong interest in technology and robots led him to create his own start-up, Reflect Social, which aims to simplify how smart home technology works.


"My entrepreneurial goal is to build technology that enables people to live better lives," Wimmer told CNN.


The boy said he is now considering his next options, which could include continuing with school, accepting various job offers or pursuing a fellowship to grow his start-up.


Wimmer said that amid his academic and entrepreneurial pursuits, he still makes time for activities like basketball and building Lego sets.


"A lot of people think I've given up my childhood or somehow lost it," Wimmer said, "and I say to them that I'm having the time of my life."

 A Las Vegas couple said workers digging behind their home for a pool installation made a surprising discovery: a set of bones that could be up to 14,000 years old.



Matt Perkins, who recently moved to Las Vegas with his husband, said they woke up Monday morning to find Las Vegas police officers were speaking with the workers digging out the hole for their backyard pool.


"It kind of freaked us out," Perkins told the Las Vegas Review-Journal of learning the workers had found buried bones.


Perkins said his mind was eased when the police determined the bones, found about 4-5 feet under the surface, were not from a human -- and were likely thousands of years old.


"We had joked on Friday that while they started digging, 'Oh great maybe they will find a dinosaur for us and it will pay for our pool,'" Perkins told KTNV-TV.


Perkins and his husband contacted Joshua Bonde, director of research at the Nevada Science Center, and he visited the site Tuesday.


Bonde said the bones likely came from a horse or other large animal. He said the bones could be up to 14,000 years old -- dating from the earth's most recent ice age.


"What we found was when they were excavating the backyard pool, they were cutting through ice age layers of sediment and sure enough they had a skeleton of an animal," Perkins said.


Perkins said he is now working on a plan to have the bones removed and turned over to Bonde before the concrete is poured for the pool.

 A professional soccer team from Toronto had their practice in Florida interrupted by "a massive alligator" that invaded the field.



Toronto FC was holding a closed practice Monday on a field in Orlando when the alligator wandered out onto the grass.


The team posted a video to YouTube showing players giving the unusual visitor a wide berth.


"All I can tell you is this -- there was an alligator, a massive alligator," Toronto coach Chris Armas told Sky Sports. "And my players are running towards the alligator as I went the other way. Listen we talk about fearless and aggressive round here, but I thought we would not think about that at that moment."


The team was preparing to face Mexico's Cruz Azul in Tuesday's Scotiabank CONCACAF Champions League quarterfinal match.

Animal rescuers in Britain said an Ikea shopper returned to their home and discovered a potted plant they purchased at the furniture store had a stowaway -- a gecko lizard.



The RSPCA said the shopper bought the plant from the Ikea store in Exeter and returned home to find a gecko was hiding among the leaves.


RSPCA Animal Rescue Officer Clara Scully responded to the home to safely capture the lizard.


"A member of the public got more than they bargained for with this plant. This little fella was hidden in the leaves! He is now safe awaiting transfer for his new home by one of our exotic officers," Scully said.


The RSPCA said the gecko is native to warmer climates and would likely not survive in the wild in Britain.
