An Australian company has invented
the first rubber shoes for horses.
They’re non-permanent, lightweight,
comfortable, they provide traction and
shock absorption, and they can clip on

If you were to look up in the sky and see this huge black mass contorting into different shapes, you might get a little creeped out. Although it looks alien, it’s actually just a European Starling Murmuration. The birds will group together in their thousands and perform various stunts before roosting for the night. Scientists believe that they do this to intimidate predators such as falcons. And if you think the gif looks cool, watch this.

There are two species that hold the whimsical title of “Fried Egg Jellyfish”: Phacellophora camtschatica and Cotylorhiza tuberculata though the two are quite different from each other in all aspects beside appearance.
Phacellophora camtschatica is a huge jelly that prefers colder waters. It’s bell can reach up to 2 ft across and its dozens of tentacles reach over 20 ft long! If you don’t think this floating egg creature looks very menacing, you’d be right. It has a very weak sting and many small crustaceans take advantage of the jelly by riding on its bell (breakfast to go…?) while snatching up extra food.
Cotylorhiza tuberculata is a much smaller jellyfish that hangs out in warmer waters. It only reaches about 35 cm in diameter, so don’t go for this Fried Egg Jelly if you want a big breakfast. Unlike most jellyfish, C. tuberculata can swim on its own, without relying on the currents for movement. It’s sting (if you can even call it that) is so feeble that it has very little to no effect on humans at all. I mean, it does look like a breakfast food, after all… how powerful could it be?
