6. Did you know that doctors now believe that spring fever — a colloquialism for that giddy burst of energy experienced when temperatures rise — is actually rooted in brain science?
Since the springtime brings longer and brighter days, we are exposed to more light. That light exposure triggers our brains to release less melatonin, the brain chemical that makes us sleepy in the winter, and more seratonin, a mood-elevating neurotransmitter. Whatever the reason, one thing is for sure: Spring fever is the perfect cure for the winter blues.</strong>

Snake v Crocodile – No Camping There For Me

This so makes you want to go for a camping holiday there — Not!

A python begins to swallow the crocodile at Lake Moondarra near Mount Isa on March 2, 2014 in Queensland, Australia. The snake fought, wrestled and then ate a crocodile whole following a dramatic five-hour long battle. The incident was captured on camera by Tiffany Corlis at Lake Moondarra in Queensland, Australia. (Marvin Muller/Barcroft Media /Landov)

That is one satisfied snake.
Photographers in Queensland, Australia, captured a snake battling a crocodile over the span of five hours, climaxing with the snake swallowing the crocodile whole.
“[The crocodile] was fighting at the start, it was trying to keep its head out of water and survive,” one photographer, Tiffany Corlis, told ABC Australia. “But as the morning progressed you could tell both of them were getting a little weaker as the struggle was going on. Finally the croc sort of gave in.”

The fight happened on the shore of Lake Moondarra, a popular place for Queensland residents to go swimming – though Corlis said she plans to send someone else in first before stepping foot in the water in the future.
“It was just unbelievable,” she said. “We were sort of thinking the snake had bitten off a little more than it could chew, pardon the pun, but it did actually eat the crocodile.”

Crocodile Dive – Australia

I have personally seen crocodiles of this size in the wild. It was on a boat trip on the river in Darwin.  I think you could safely say,  a picnic on the banks of the river is out of the question

If you’re looking for an awesome thrill, head over to Darwin City in northern Australia where Crocosaurus Cove will introduce you to the self-contained experience of a lifetime, the Cage of Death, “Australia’s only crocodile dive experience.” 
The ultimate face to face encounter commences as you are lowered into one of three crocodile enclosures, gradually becoming submerged in the very same waters as some of Australia’s largest crocodiles. Each cage dive will spend approximately 5 minutes in each of the 3 enclosures!
Operated by an over-head monorail and designed for 1 or 2 people per cage, the Cage of Death has you suspended above the crocs before being lowered into the pens to get an up close and personal look at these amazing reptiles.
Sometimes daily life gets a bit dull and it takes a new experience, like a face-to-face encounter with an enormous crocodile, to really shake things up. That should help refresh you and put things back into perspective, right? That is, assuming you don’t suffer from herpetophobia.

Did You Know – 11/14/2011

1. Pint Size(s) – British law has long dictated that pubs sell beer and cider only in an imperial pint, which is about 20% larger than a U.S. pint. This year parliament is set to scrap several restrictions on weights and measures to encourage innovation. This would legalize a two-thirds pint which is an amount some call a schooner based on a similar size in Australian pour. Brits drink some 23 million pints of beer a day.

2. Goliath Groupers – This fish according to studies by biologist Steve Huskey sucks in water and prey at a 50 plus miles an hour.

3. Focusing – According to British scientists ‘tuning out’ is a biological phenomenon. Focusing intently on a visual task like reading or doing a crossword can render a person deaf to perfectly audible sounds.

4. DNA – Humans share 98.4% of our DNA with chimps. In comparison, we share 70% of our DNA with a slug. Source: Science Facts

5. The first-known contraceptive was crocodile dung, used by Egyptians in 2000 BC. Source
