I'm thinking the story is legit, but I think the magazine made that picture in their photo lab. The cactus is too damn big for the legs.

Bear Opens Door to Car *Volume Warning*
 
While driving through Yellowstone National Park, this family encountered a bear on the side of the road, so they stopped to say hello and snap some pictures.



Next week he'll be at the lights in the nearest town offering to clean your windscreen for a dollar. :)

All bow before the King Pecker.

Gravdigr 06-20-2016 12:27 PM

I thought that one was this one.

But, I think my pecker may be bigger than yours.

I've been waiting my whole life to say that to someone.

:D

Our peckers are in different places, too, I think. I hope.:cool:

Different times of year, at the least.

Your pecker has evergreens and snow, whereas my pecker has a warmer backdrop.
I demand a peck-off, high noon at... tah da(French horns), The Tree.

Gravdigr 06-20-2016 02:01 PM

Heh, your peck-off reminded me of this.

I can't hear that video, even went to youtube. :confused:

Gravdigr 06-21-2016 01:04 PM

Woman wakes up to find 16ft python on her bed

Not every wild creature in Australia is out to kill you by lethal sting or venomous bite. Some are benign to the point of only subjecting you to a little light crushing.

An Australian woman who woke in the early hours after her table lamp crashed to the floor found a 16ft python curled around her bed.

It is believed the huge scrub python had been living in the walls and ceiling of Trina Hibberd’s house near Cairns for more than a decade.

But on Monday morning – an abnormally cool day in tropical northern Australia – the snake left his hiding place and began to explore Ms Hibberd’s house.

The huge python – estimated to weigh nearly 40kg — slithered along the veranda then up her lounge room wall, flicking the light switch on, onto a painting, and then into a bedroom, where it knocked over the lamp.

Julie Birrell, who was staying with Ms Hibberd, raised the alarm.

“All hell broke loose,” said Ms Hibberd, of the unscheduled 4.30am wake-up call.

The women filmed the snake sprawled across the house, stretching across the lounge room wall and into the bedroom. They called a professional snake catcher after locking the snake in the bedroom.

While the snake’s awakening was dramatic, it was not the first time it had made an appearance.

Ms Hibberd said she first saw it 15 years ago, when it poked its head into the bathroom when she was having a shower, and had nicknamed it Monty.

“We knew the snake was around but I had never seen it inside, not that I know of,” she said. “I’ve never seen it in its full length.”

Monty was still in the bedroom when Dave Goodwin, the snake catcher, arrived.

“We walked into the bedroom and it was hanging from the curtain drapes down to the bedside table — and that was only a third of him,” Mr Goodwin said.

“It was a good monster. We locked ourselves in the bedroom and grabbed him around the neck. He coiled around my arm but we managed to put him a container.”

It is the second biggest snake Mr Goodwin has seen in his career.

Monty was released into a local water treatment plant at Mission Beach which backs onto native bushland.
