here is currently a massive storm churning over the Atlantic that spans the entire ocean basin, stretching all the way from Canada to Europe, and from Greenland to the Caribbean.It’s the same weather system that brought a massive spring blizzard to much of the United States and Canada earlier this week (on Tuesday (March 26), 44 of 50 states had some snow on the ground), and which has now ballooned in size, according to Jason Samenow, chief meteorologist with the Washington Post’s Capital Weather Gang.

A new kind of lake monster has been found, in the depths of Lake Tahoe: gigantic goldfish. Researchers trawling the lake for invasive fish species scooped up a goldfish that was nearly 1.5 feet long and 4.2 pounds.

“During these surveys, we’ve found a nice corner where there’s about 15 other goldfish,” environmental scientist Sudeep Chandra of the University of Nevada, Reno, told LiveScience. “It’s an indication that they were schooling and spawning.” The arrival of the fish, which were probably dumped there by aquarium owners, has Chandra worried — goldfish are an invasive species that could interfere with Lake Tahoe’s ecosystem.

It’s unclear whether the giant fish were introduced as fully grown adults, or while they were still small, Chandra said. But even a small creature can have a big impact, if there are enough of them.

8 tentacled snakes

How’s this for a bundle of joy? This October, eight snakes with tentacles were born at the Smithsonian’s National Zoo.

It was not a Halloween prank. Zoo staff had been trying to breed the rare aquatic snake Erpeton tentaculatus for four years before success. These bizarre Southeast Asian serpents are the only snakes with two little tentacles on their snouts. These tentacles act like whiskers to help the snakes sense vibrations from swimming fish.

Mysterious Rings

Mysterious RingsCredit: Image courtesy of N. JuergensFairy circles are circular patches of perennial grasses with a barren center that emerge in the deserts along the southwest coast of Africa. Dotting the Namibian deserts, these rings can persist for decades and occur in regular patterns. Now, research detailed in the March 29, 2013, issue of the journal Science suggests a species of sand termite (Psammotermes) may be the artists behind the grassy artwork.

Here, numerous tracks of Oryx antelopes crossing fairy circles in an interdune pan, shown in this aerial view of Namibrand, Namibia.

Two Headed Shark:

Experts say the discovery of a two-headed shark may be a world first. The sea creature was found when a fisherman working in the Gulf of Mexico cut into the uterus of an adult shark. The shark has two hearts and two stomachs but only one tail  http://www.livescience.com/video/

Revelation 19:16 On his robe and on his thigh he has this name written: KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS. This blog is to present Up To Date Prophetic News. My prayer is that this blog will bring others to know Jesus as their Savior if they do not know him the King of Kings and Lord of Lords.

  1. Great post! It’s amazing the stuff they have found over the years. I wonder if this has anything to do with that storm? http://iamnotashamedofthegospelofchrist.com/2013/03/30/russian-military-warns-of-potential-catastrophic-quake-on-us-west-coast/

    • It wouldnt surprise me. Between fracking, dynamite explosions for underground cities, forts, etc…oil drilling on land and ocean has off set the balance of nature and electromagnetic fields, …man has screwed up our planet. Also, the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is the world’s largest and highest-energy particle accelerator, and considered “one of the great engineering milestones of mankind”.[1] It was built by the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) from 1998 to 2008, with the aim of allowing physicists to test the predictions of different theories of particle physics and high-energy physics,…(check wiki site) This alone would offset magnetic fields…the thing is so huge it runs under villages and the effect it has on humans…who knows..check it out…just got from work not long along…this timey going to bed..God bless….talk to email later in week or here…keep up wonderful post
