This alligator was found between Athens and Palestine, Texas near a house. Game wardens were forced to shoot the alligator -- guess he wouldn't cooperate. Jeff Goff, 6'5" tall, a game warden with the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, walks past a 23-foot, 1-inch alligator that he shot and killed in a backyard.

THE FIRST HUMAN CREATIONS
The caves at Lascaux in France were discovered accidentally in 1940. The paintings in those caves are regarded as the most outstanding of all
known prehistoric art.
The Lascaux caverns had served as subterranean water channels, a few hundred to some 4,000 feet long. Far inside these caverns the hunter-artists engraved and painted on the walls pictures of animals such as mammoth, bison, reindeer, horse. For light, they used tiny stone lamps filled with marrow or fat, with a wick, perhaps, of moss. For drawing, they used chunks of red and yellow ocher; for painting, they ground these same ochers into powders that they blew onto the walls or mixed with some medium, such as animal fat, before applying. A large flat bone served as a palette; they could make brushes from reeds or bristles; they could use a blowpipe of reeds to trace outlines of figures and to put pigments on out-of-reach surfaces; and they had stone scrapers for smoothing the wall and sharp flint points for engraving.

Another fish for our classroom?
B2 Spirit Stealth Bomber
The kids start the day with Mom supervising breakfast.
Then off to school they go.
Everyone has an assigned seat in the classroom.
Where's Waldo is their favorite game.
Before you know it, everyone is tired out.
When the kids get home from their busy school day, it's time for a bath.
Then they dry off before bedtime.
Scratch just a little to the left, Aaaah!
Not a good way to study "Life Science"
How about this for our next classroom pet?
Do You See What I See?
Blue ink diffusing into water takes on the appearance of jubilant figures with raised arms, as if in prayer.

Shrimp cleaning the teeth of a lizard fish.
This tiny shrimp fearlessly enters the mouth of a fish to clean its teeth. Fish value this service as the shrimp removes and eats harmful parasites. The shrimp lives in the sea anemone in the background. Fish recognize the anemone as a cleaning station, and when they need a clean they approach it and open their mouths, encouraging the shrimp in. This is mutualism - a form of symbiosis in which both partners benefit.

This phenomena only happens at the instant an aircraft breaks the sound
barrier and it literally looks like the aircraft goes through a wall.
