Villagers Convinced Dragons Are Real After Discovering Mysterious 60-Foot Skeleton

In China, everything is possible. Even (and especially) giant flying reptile worms.

From time to time, the internet explodes with news of supposedly new “finds” involving strange beasts and other bizarre phenomena. Some of these unearthed discoveries include dual-headed animals, shapeless blobs, “aliens,” and strange creatures washed ashore from the deep.

In other cases, people are astounded when “evidence” of totally mythical beings suddenly make an appearance. Like the huge collection of bones Chinese villagers found in a field

Apparently, they appear to be the remains of a 60-foot-long animal.

In any case, the superstitious residents of small backwater Zhangjiakou in northern Hebei Province claim the bones only prove that dragons really exist.

Based on the lengthy spine and two tiny arm bones with claws, they say this may very well be an example of a traditional Chinese dragon.

The kind that has no wings, but nonetheless “swims” through the air.

The complete skeleton had a head with horns, which uncannily resembled the skull of a local cow.

The villagers appear in a video clustering around the remains. Some looking very much in awe at beholding the remains of a legend.

Others rode the “beast” and took selfies for posterity.

Viewers who saw the viral video commented that not all the locals may have been convinced the remains were the real deal. If they did, they would have shown proper respect for it instead of treating the bones like some carnival ride or a fairground exhibit.

Others opined the collection of bones looked very much like those of cows and sheep. And wouldn’t the skeleton have been scattered all over the place if wild animals scavenged the body?

Instead it appeared curiously undamaged and put-together.

At present, no experts have yet come forward to present their findings. Neither have any pranksters admitted to intentionally laying the ribby skeleton where it would easily be found.

This Company Lets You Install Observational Beehives In Your Living Room

Not only will you see bees in action, you will also get to understand their crucial role in an urban setting!

The sad reality that we are facing today is the consistent decline in the bee population. Yes, this is true – and it has been that way for a long time already. Unfortunately, among the known causes of bee population decline are the loss of habitat and modern industrial farming methods.

If you think this is the least of your problems, then you certainly do not know a thing or two about nature. You see, bees are the ones responsible for pollinating most of the plants on the planet. And these plants, apparently, are the kinds that we human beings rely upon food. If not for these creatures, it is almost impossible for this cycle to happen. In order to encounter this nightmarish event, experts have come up with a couple of innovative solutions. BEEcosystem, in particular, has developed a system of wall-mounted observation hives, all of which can be easily expanded in a hexagonal, honeycomb style.

New Study Warns Against Extinction of Orangutans

The population of Bornean orangutans halved in just 16 years.

Orangutans are one of man's closest relatives in the animal kingdom. They are the only great ape species in Asia, and they share 97% of human DNA. They have the ability to reason and to think, as well as to develop their own cultures. But a recently published study warns against the orangutan's extinction - and it could all be due to human activity.

The new study, titled "Global Demand for Natural Resources Eliminated More Than 100,000 Bornean Orangutans" and published in Current Biology, found that human activities like logging, mining, hunting, and deforestation, among others, have slashed the population of Bornean orangutans into half in just 16 years. That's from 1999 to 2015.
