Toast with Showers


Sick of leaving the house forgetting to check the weather forecast and getting a drenching?
Well, designer  Nathan Brunstein may have come up with a solution that is both handy and edible. Introducing the ‘Jamy Toaster’  capable of predicting the weather—thanks to an inbuilt barometer and thermometer.

Put a piece of bread into the toaster, and when it's done, it will pop up with the day's forecast 'printed' onto it.

Blue-Footed Boobies


The male, blue-footed boobies are particularly proud of their feet and show them off during mating rituals. Apparently, the bluer they are the more attractive they are to the opposite sex!

Boobies can be found on the western coasts of Central and South America, and in particular on The Gal├ípagos Islands.

Winged "Poodles"


Spotted flying around in the skies of South America, is the Venezuelan poodle moth. A very strange creature, and nobody seems to know much about it. 

According to Zoologist, media consultant, and science writer, Dr Karl Shuker (also one of the best known cryptozoologists in the world). He believes this to be legitimate: "Furry, white, long-eyelash-bedecked insect that's so strange it couldn't possibly exist in real life and yet somehow it does? Definitely."
