Creatures Strange: Strange Creatures

I was watching a T.V. program 2 weeks ago. I wasn’t quite sure if it was Animal Planet or Discovery Channel. Anyway, it was about animal species such as the pythons which are growing massively and are now causing stir. Here’s the thing, if we think about a battle between a python and an alligator, there’s at least 90 percent certainty that the alligator will win. However, after having photos of a python swallowing an alligator it became apparent that a python is capable of swallowing larger animals. How large? Well, I did a bit of research to see how weird (wear) and strange these creatures are.

Okay this is very common a python swallows an alligator

How about this a Python swallows a 20 kilogram pregnant goat?

Oh yeah, not to mention when I was watching the T.V. program, a politician from Florida (not sure if it was a Mayor or Senator) is doing something to control the population of pythons in the Everglades.

Susan McKinley an anthropologist, came back home from South America, and noticed in her left breast, a very strange rash, but she did not pay much attention into it,  believing that the sores would heal in time. However, she decided to see a doctor after she started developing intense pains, but the doctor,could not find the exact diagnosis of the case, and just gave her antibiotics and special creams. Few days after, the pain did not subside and her left breast became more inflamed and started to bleed. McKinley bandage her sores, however, the pain grew more intense, and decided to seek help from a specialist, Dr. Lynch, but could not diagnose the infection and advised McKinley and referred her to one of his colleagues, a dermatologist, but unfortunately was not available at that time. McKinley waited for two weeks and finally was able to reach the dermatologist. And soon the bandages was removed, the doctor found larva growing and squirming within the breast skin pores and sores. These larvae were feeding off the fat, tissue, and even milk canals of her bosom. Susan McKinley underwent an emergency operation to remove the larva from her breast. And so do not ignore any rashes on your skin before it is too late, and specially for women, check your bras and undergarment, and be sure they are always clean.
