Monarch butterflies are perhaps one of the most interesting species, with wings that seem to be a work of art. They can only live from two weeks to five months the most. Apparently, there was a certain butterfly on a brink of death. It basically came into this world with a defected wing.
Romy McCloskey vowed to raise three monarch butterflies, but one of these creatures had a problem on its wings. Determined he could save it, Romy turned her home into a mini operating room. She even used common household items in performing a wing transplant. Yes, that’s right – a wing transplant!
What is more interesting is the fact that Romy had no medical expertise whatsoever. She was a “professional costume designer and master hand embroiderer,” though. Still, she managed to make the operation successful.
Scroll down and check out the photos to see how the surgery went!
Some of Romy’s supplies included a wire hanger, a cotton swab, a toothpick, contact cement, scissors, and tweezers.
The extra wing was taken from another butterfly that died days before.
Since butterflies have no pain receptors, drugging was not necessary.
Romy described the entire operation as somewhat similar to cutting and/or trimming nails.
Thanks to her steady hands and patience, the little creature’s wings were fixed.
Although the design of the wings did not match, the creature should have no problems flying.
After a day of rest and “homemade honey” buffet, the butterly finally flew.
Romy let the creature flew by itself and wished it “good luck.” The operation was indeed a success – a huge one actually!
Well, what do you think about Romy’s surgery skills? Let us know what you think in the comments below!
Amazing Survival Tactics Made Frozen Alligators Survive the Winter Blast
They hate the freezing cold as much as we do.
Most creatures, human or not, will surely perish in extreme frozen conditions. Case in point, you would definitely NOT expect alligators to survive being frozen in a icy pond. Surprisingly, however, these alligators in Shalotte River Swamp Park in North Carolina did. They avoided being frozen to death, thanks to awesome survival tactics.
A video showed these alligators with their snouts sticking out of the frozen pound. They look dead at first glance, but according to the park's manager, they were actually alive and well.
A cold front surrounding most of the Eastern U.S. last week cause the pond to a deep freeze.
Injured Dog Takes Himself to the Vet to Get Treatment
What a smart dog!
Dogs are highly intelligent creatures and you’d be surprised with what they can do. One recent incident in Thailand shows us exactly that as an injured golden retriever received popularity after he walked straight to the vet to receive treatment.
According to reports, the dog accidentally hurt his eye and he was later found at the door of the Petto Street clinic, a vet clinic in Lam Lukka, Pathum Thani. The dog’s left eye, as can be seen in the photos below, was covered in blood.
This poor golden retriever took himself to a vet clinic and got treatment.
Stonefish: The World’s Most Venomous Fish, Also Quite A Delicacy
The world’s most dangerous fish might also be the most delicious you’ll ever taste.
The Philippines is popular for its marine biology and it is a well-known fact that its surrounding oceans inhabited by thousands and thousands more of aquatic species than elsewhere in the world. For this, the archipelago has become a top tourist destination for beach lovers, most especially to divers who wish to witness an amazing aquatic environment. Lurking beneath the majestic, blue waters of Philippines, though, is the most venomous fish and one of the deadliest species in the world. This simply proves that the biggest creature underwater is not necessarily the largest threat.
The stonefish is known as the master of camouflage. It blends perfectly with its surroundings and this is all because of its brown or grey skin with red or yellow patches, making it look like it’s a part of the coral reef. It can also look like an ordinary stone, so you have to wear your wet shoes to be protected from these deceiving creatures.
If sharks and sting rays scare you, you might want to be more careful around this smaller fish.
