Friday Roundup: This Week's Wildlife Links (August 28th, 2013)

Cool pic. When your catch becomes bait or, a shark within a shark.

Cooking invasive species. Includes a recipe for Nutria egg rolls, which caused me to wonder for a moment what a Nutria egg was.

Bears are suffering worldwide because of the demand for their gallbladders.

The end of Finding Nemo II will no longer have the characters living in captivity.

Somehow, a co-worker once convinced me that Velvet Ants don't sting. Boy, did I ever find out she was joking. An article about the incredibly painful stings of this animal.

A few religious people in California are excited about a tree weeping tears from their deity of choice. Actually, the tears are just excrement from insects. Close your mouths, folks.

Gray Wolf confirmed killed in Kentucky. Anyone have more details about this?

Penis snake discovered in Brazil. Found to be a bit of a misnomer.

It's been a while since we've had a Ratsnake Freakout. Missouri Illinois residents terrified of harmless snakes. Of course, locals believe they are Cottonmouths.

Hellbenders are being reintroduced in New York.

Male rattlesnakes may engage in ritualized combat over mates. It's an incredible behavior that is a combination of both dance and wrestling. It's also often mistaken for mating, such as in the case of these two Timber Rattlesnakes observed in Alabama.
