Slimy squatter gets tanked up on coral
A fishkeeper was shocked to a 1.2 metre-long bristle worm that had been hiding in his tank – for two years!
He spotted the giant eunice worm while he was cleaning the tank, the Mirror reports.
He videod the creature on his mobile phone video and it has now been viewed on YouTube more than 172,400 times.
On the video, the American says: “I first saw it after I spent a few nights sat up (after lights went out) for about three hours per night looking for the critter who was eating my corals.
“Even when I knew it was there, I only ever saw it three times within the space of a year.”
Noel has power to create the first bionic cockapoo
An excitable cockapoo has been fitted with a bionic paw – after she had her paw chopped off when she was run over by a lawnmower while on a walk.
Orla was rushed to a local vet, who sedated Orla and then had her transferred to Noel Fitzpatrick’s veterinary hospital in the hope the ‘supervet’ could save her.
Orla had three operations and a long stay at Fitzpatrick Referrals to overcome an infection.
The dramatic story was revealed in an episode of Channel 4’s documentary The Supervet, a fly on the wall documentary based at Noel’s practice in Surrey.
Noel said the surgery was one of the most difficult he had performed and after the surgery he said he was hopeful she would make a full recovery.
He was proved right as after 16 weeks of treatment, Orla made a full recovery and was back at home.
Owner Melody’s young son thinks it is ‘cool’ that’ their pet now has a bionic paw. “We will be the only ones in school with a dog with a robot leg,” he said.
