Undefeated One-Legged Wrestler!

Standing proud and grappling like Hulk Hogan this one legged wrestler is celebrating a season of winning. Champion, Anthony Robles from Arizona, has not only defeated his rivals in the ring but overcame a mysterious condition that left him born without a right leg. With a special technique of wrestling from the floor the 125lbs wrestler is able to use his body to such effect that some of his opponents even claim that having only one leg has given him an advantage in the ring… Despite his disability Mr Robles became interested in basketball, baseball, American football and soccer as a child and then switched to wrestling at the age of 14. Now he is U.S. National Collegiate Athletic Association champion after an undefeated season in 2011.” w/ photos + video

The Chemistry Behind Bad Breath

“Here is some good news for you: you can blame the sounds and odors that come from your body on bacteria. Yup, those little critters are the ones responsible for a lot of what goes on inside our bodies. People can be uptight about all these bodily sights and smells, but understanding the science behind what may appear gross may make these things a little less gross.” — BytesizeScience

Dentist Performs Root Canal On Tiger

An Anchorage endodontist performed a root canal on a big tooth in a very big patient — a full-grown Siberian tiger. Dr. Doug Luiten worked on 300-pound Kunali — measuring nearly 7 feet from backside to nose — Thursday at the Alaska Zoo. “It’s the longest tooth I’ve ever worked on,” Luiten said of more than three-inch canine. The zoo had to order some special instruments to accommodate the longer tooth, and even had to modify those during the root canal. Kunali was not restrained, and didn’t wake up during the hour-long procedure thanks to anesthesia administered by Dr. David Brunson, a visiting veterinarian from Madison, Wis. ‘He was a good boy, he handled things well,’ Brunson said. Hours after the procedure, Alaska Zoo Executive Director Pat Lampi said 7-year-old Kunali was doing fine. “It couldn’t have gone any better today, it was perfect,” said Dr. Riley Wilson, the zoo’s veterinarian.” w/ photo

Top 10 Famous Bizarre Elephants Deaths

“It is tempting to grant the title of the world’s most intriguing animal to one of the great apes. But a chimp has more in common with us than not; for want of a mere chromosome he might discard his bananas for a cubicle. Let us then examine a species a bit more difficult to anthropomorphize (but hardly impossible, given the glorious doe-eyed, impossibly aerial turn of Dumbo) but every bit as sentient, as self-aware, as the monkeys. The elephant is the largest land-dwelling beast on planet earth. The most massive specimen ever recorded was a massive 26,000+ lb. monster bull shot in Angola. [This] list examines the lives and bizarre ends of some of the greatest beasts who have ever walked the earth.” w/ photos
