An animal trainer in China has found a way to milk the last bit of kindness out of his wife by asking her to breastfeed the monkeys that he supplies to circuses and stage acts.
Jiao Xinzhen bared all about her decision to lend a hand, among other body parts, to her husband's efforts to keep his monkey school afloat. She says that the family even adopted one of the critters as a playmate for their son, leading to a further bond within their ranks.
Jiao says, "Many times, some of the baby monkeys slip onto our bed at night to suckle. I feel they are just like my children." (Orange News U.K.)
A wanna-be crook in Cambodia had his get-rich plan fall apart after the toy gun he was using in his robbery attempt fell to pieces in his hands.
Khem Ra, who had been deported from the United States over pending criminal charges over here, walked into a currency exchange with the phony weapon and pointed at the clerk, who noticed that the plastic was falling apart at the seams. He then struck her with the weapon and fled with cops in hot pursuit.
A police negotiator, who'd followed Ra to his safe house, agreed to allow him to come out without being arrested if he returned the cash, but then cuffed him anyway. (UPI)
The folks who run a Utah aquarium are getting a little bit of help in making Christmas bright – not from a reindeer, but from an electric eel!
The Living Planet Aquarium is using the creature to power the lights on a Christmas tree in its "Journey To South America" gallery, which flick on and off as the eel emits its charge. A rep for the park says that the average eel has the capability of generating about six times the amount of power of a standard wall socket.
Angie Hyde, director of public relations and marketing for the aquarium, says, "Visitors can visually and audibly experience the power of our electric eel and get a real sense of how amazing this creature is. We thought we'd put a festive twist on it for the holidays." (UPI)
