Mind Controlled Zombie Ants

In animal behavior, nature on May 28, 2013 at 07:23

Nature is strange.

It acts in ways that bedevils understanding.

While Science dabbles with Mind Control Telepathy ans declares them to be not Scientific, calls these phenomena as Para normal (Hinduism has no description as para normal, for them every thing is Normal in Nature),Scientists have discovered Fungi controlling the Minds of Ants !

These fungi infect carpenter ants and turn them into zombies, directing them to leave their colonies and die in places where the fungi can grow and spread. The zombifying fungus can be seen growing from the top of this dead ant’s head.

Mysterious Unknown Animals Photo Essay

In images, nature on April 16, 2013 at 19:09

A mysterious primate resembling a monkey was spotted in a Park UK.

But it is doubtful if it is a Monkey.

There are  lots of instances where hitherto unknown animals have been found.

I do not know what Darwinian would say to this.

I have been already labelled as antiDarwin and an ignoramus in comments in Times of India , when people could not  reply my queries.

Let me add further by posting a Photo Essay on the animals hitherto unknown.

Monkey(?) UK

This creature was found by Russian soldiers on Sakhalin shoreline. Sakhalin area is situated near to Japan, it’s the most eastern part of Russia, almost 5000 miles to East from Moscow (Russia is huge). People don’t know who is it. According to the bones and teeth – it is not a fish. According to its skeleton – it’s not a crocodile or alligator. It has a skin with hair or fur. It has been said that it was taken by Russian special services for in-depth studies, and we are lucky that people who encountered it first made those photos before it was brought away.

Mount Everest

Mount Everest Seen from Space

MOUNT EVEREST

Mount Everest is the Earth’s highest mountain, with a peak at 8,848 metres above sea level.

In 1865, Everest was given its official English name by the Royal Geographical Society upon a recommendation by Andrew Waugh, the British Surveyor General of India. Waugh named the mountain after his predecessor in the post, Sir George Everest.

It has become a mecca for climbers, and has two main climbing routes, the southeast ridge from Nepal and the north ridge from Tibet.

The southeast ridge is technically easier and was the route used by Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay in 1953 when they reached the summit for the first time.

 

It is an astonishing image that shows the beauty and majesty of the Himalaya region.

A climber and filmmaker has created the stunning mosaic of images to show the effect of climate change on the area surrounding Mount Everest.

The 477 individual images that make up the gigapixel image of the Khumbu glacier were captured by David Breashears during the spring of 2012, from the Pumori viewpoint near Mount Everest.

Use your mouse to navigate around the image below, and click on the hand under the green boxes to jump to key areas (please note, this requires Flash so will not work on iPads or iPhones)

‘The Khumbu Icefall is clearly visible here, and one can easily see the hustle and bustle of Everest Base Camp below’, he told MailOnline.

The incredible image is made up of 477 images taken with a 300-millimeter lens.

Breashears and his team stitched them together to create one massive image that users can zoom in and out of.
