A A A

The video below, taken in Washington, shows us an unusual ‘salmon race’ happening not on water but, oddly, on a road. Sure, it sounds unbelievable but believe us, I wouldn’t believe it too if I didn’t saw the footage myself.

Uploaded by Shannon Adams on both Facebook and YouTube, the short clip has since gained a lot of online attention from curious netizens across the world.

In the video’s description on YouTube, Shannon shared the explanation behind the strange incident.

“This video was taken in November 2016 on the Skykomish Valley Road near Seattle, WA. Due to high rainfall, the river had burst its banks and was flooding over fields and roads. Migrating salmon – returning from a life in the ocean – seek the lower flow streams to spawn and die. These are following the stream wherever it goes – using great effort to overcome obstacles including roads.”

Reports tell us that while flooding occurred in the area was common, it was indeed a rare sight to see salmon on the road, struggling to go against the flow.

It is also noticeable that the water was a few inches deep but the salmon did their best to still cross the road.

Fortunately, motorists who witnessed the unexpected crossing patiently waited until the fishes were done with their journey.

Giant Crocodile Gets Rescued After Getting Stuck in a Canal While Looking for Food

OMG! That’s probably one of the biggest crocodiles ever!

I’ll admit it right here – few creatures scare me more than a crocodile.

I mean I’ve seen these creatures locked in zoos but each time I do, I couldn’t help but imagine how terrible it would be if a person accidentally fell into the cage. Those big sharp teeth are definitely the stuff of nightmares! I should probably blame the movies for my paranoia.

Recently, however, a real life giant crocodile was found by wildlife department authorities in Sri Lanka. The massive reptile was stuck in a canal while it was searching for something to eat. It was found in the city of Matara in a canal leading to the river of Nilawala. Apparently, it got stuck in a canal while searching for food after water levels rose because of heavy rain.

Villagers Slaughter Gigantic Snake Thinking it Ate an Animal, Turns Out it was Pregnant!

Nigerian villagers thought that the python looked huge because it had eaten an animal, but they found out it was actually pregnant with dozens of eggs.

The residents of a village in Nigeria were recently on alert after a farmer lost a calf. The village was surrounded by wilderness, so the Nigerian villagers assumed that the animal was eaten by a snake. More specifically, they profiled the culprit as a python.

Thus, the villagers got fired up when they spotted an African rock python whose belly looked swollen. Just because the animal looked like it had eaten something huge, the Nigerian villagers immediately tagged it as the main suspect in the calf's disappearance.

African rock pythons can grow from 3 meters to over 4.8 meters long. In fact, there have been sightings of specimens that are around 6 meters long.
