  1. Badass 9-Year-Old Wins Fight With 400-Pound Alligator, Takes Tooth as Trophy

    "You should see the other guy."

    A story that easily could have ended in tragedy last week took a surprising turn when a 9-year-old boy fought off an alligator that was actively trying to eat him. Seriously, it left a tooth behind in one of the wounds the Florida child sustained, which he's going to keep and make into a necklace as a conversation piece/get-out-of-bullying-for-life card.

  7. Shelter Is A Tale of Motherhood, Loss, and Survival. It Is Also A Badger Simulator.

    Review

    I awoke in my den, surrounded by four yipping cubs — and a motionless one, curled into a ball. Oh god. Two seconds into Shelter, and already I’d failed as a parent. I approached the cub, and gave a bark, trying to wake it. Its siblings responded. The still one did not. At a loss, I walked down a tunnel, wondering what I could’ve done. I came upon a root vegetable. I grabbed it between my sharp teeth, and continued on. But as I tried to walk down the tunnel, I kept balking backward. The game wouldn’t let me leave my offspring behind. I thought for a moment, and returned to the lifeless cub. I offered the vegetable. My cub wolfed the tuber down, and color returned to its fur. It got to its feet, and trotted along after me. A voice appeared in my head, cutting through the game’s mellow soundtrack. “Having successfully learned to feed her cubs, the young mother can now venture into the forest.” “Who’s that?” I asked. “I’m Sir David Attenborough,” the voice said. “I will be providing your imaginary narration.”

    Consider the Following

    Etsy announced a policy change on Monday that bans the use of endangered animal parts/products from being sold on the popular internet marketplace.

  10. Falcon Family Shuts Down UK Cell Phone Tower

    Good news? A family of endangered peregrine falcons has taken up residence in a U.K. cell tower. Bad news? Since U.K. endangered species laws prevent people from messing with the nests of endangered birds and potentially disturbing their rare offspring, technicians are unable to conduct maintenance on the tower and have been forced to shut it down, leaving customers in the area lacking a cell signal until July, when officials -- and customers -- hope the baby birds will have grown old enough to leave the nest.

  11. Man Bitten to Death by Beaver Somehow Not an Isolated Incident

    A fishing trip to a quiet lake in Belarus ended about as badly as it's possible for a fishing trip to end when one of the men was attacked and killed by a beaver as he tried to photograph it. The man, whose name is not being released, approached the creature with his camera for a better shot when the animal pounced on him, biting his leg and severing a major artery, a wound from which the man bled out, dying a short time later. Perhaps the oddest part of this news? Beaver attacks are not as uncommon as you might think.

    A Series of Fallopian Tubes

    What's that you say? Oh yes, it's true -- marsupials, including the most popular one, the kangaroo, are equipped with a total of three vaginas.

For another, imagine how hilariously scared all those anti-choice lawmakers would be when they got a load of this information if it applied to human vaginas!
