Caught on Camera Copperhead Snakes Mate on Bike Trail

first_img Rare Two-Headed Timber Rattlesnake Spotted in New JerseySecond 18-Foot Python Caught in South Florida Stay on target A Pennsylvania man recently captured a video of two venomous copperhead snakes mating near a bike trail and their intimate moment was jaw-dropping.Jesse Rothacker, a reptile expert and Lancaster County resident, spotted the pair of copperhead snakes on a bike trail over the weekend, Fox News reported. Rothacker uploaded footage of the lusty reptiles on Facebook, after he alerted oncoming bikers and hikers about the mating duo.center_img While narrating the video, Rothacker explained how it was his first time watching copperhead snakes copulate in the area. The mating copperhead snakes are seen with their tails twisted together, engaging in internal fertilization, and not making noise, even when Rothacker was filming them from a close angle.“Finding the snakes along the trail is very common,” Rothacker told Fox 43. “Finding the snakes actually getting jiggy with it is very hard to find in the wild, so I talked to many of my herpetology colleagues, and many confirm, they have not seen copperheads doing the deed, so we’re very fortunate to run into them at that time.”According to Rothacker, there is a second fall breeding season for copperhead snakes. He also warned bikers and hikers to be aware of mating reptiles on their travels, since they like to “get it on” near trails. He didn’t share the location of the specific trail he was on, because he wanted to give the mating reptiles some privacy.More on Two-Headed Timber Rattlesnake Spotted in New JerseyWatch: ‘Dancing’ Timber Rattlesnakes Discovered By Tennessee HikerWatch: Enormous Snake Sets Off Doorbell Camera at Virginia Homelast_img read more

GAMCOTRAP Engages Journalists on Women Participation in Politics Leadership

first_imgBy Kebba Jeffang and Amie SannehGAMCOTRAP has at its head office on Saturday, 23rd August, 2014 concluded a one day workshop for both the electronic and print media practitioners on the promotion of effective participation of women in politics and leadership positions. The event was organised with funding from the National Endowment for Democracy (NED).In her opening remarks, Dr. IsatouTouray, the Executive Director of GAMCOTRAP, told the participants that the programme is a continuation of the process of a project they have been implementing. She said few months ago, her organization has engaged women of different political backgrounds to discuss about measures that can assist the women within their various political parties in terms of leadership. She said the media is equally a key partner and raising their understanding and enhancing their capacity is important.“A lot of representatives of media houses are present here to discuss matters relating to women’s participation in politics and leadership roles. Since 2008, we were able to assess and find out the impact which that programme has created in the society. We received calls from those who had participated in the sensitization as feedbacks who all showed their impressions. They even suggested to us that we should move ahead with it in order to continue registering the positive change and that is why we are here again,” she Dr. Touray .She said they will ensure that women are aware of their rights, responsibilities and the dynamics, adding that it is high time that women are accepted to play any thinkable role in society without any barrier. She said women have all the rights to be part of those making the decisions.“Women are not a threat to men and therefore that perception in men should be eliminated. It is just a matter of addressing gender imbalances just to make The Gambia a better place for all,” said GAMCOTRAP Executive Director.Dr. Touray noted that there are issues that have emerged from the training on effective participation of women in governance and decision making back in 2008. She said they have realised from the participants that the political landscape is unleveled and that there should be respect for women’s leadership roles outside party politics. She identified the challenges as financial and resource constraints, anonymous threats and abuses, among others.During the course of the programme, presentations were made by Dr. Isatou Touray on Gender issues in the promotion of women’s political participation in governance and leadership, Mrs. Amie Sillah of Foroyaa Newspaper presented a case study on women’s political participation, Mrs. Mary Small of GAMCOTRAP discussed the importance of women’s political participation in the promotion of women’s SRHR, Mrs. Amie Bojang Sissoho of GAMCOTRAP and Mr. Kebba Jobe of the National Council for Civic Education (NCCE) dilated on the role of the media in the promotion of women’s political participation in governance and leadership, the role of NCCE to promote women’s political participation in governance and leadership, respectively.]]>last_img read more

After abandoning the one item they stole, this latest attack and murder seems all the more sinister.A quiet Carlsbad neighborhood with lush green lawns, blooming flowers, and friendly neighbors are shaken Monday morning by the sounds of police choppers, sirens, and reports of a sinister burglary that resulted in bloodshed.Police say in the 1800 block of Outrigger Lane around 12:30 a.m. a man and woman broke into a home, stabbing the unsuspecting 64-year-old woman inside multiple times. They then took off in her car. By the time paramedics could get to her, she was succumbing to her wounds, dying at the hospital an hour later.By 7:30 p.m. authorities confirmed that 37-year-old Ian Bushee and 26-year-old Malissa James, both transients and both on probation in San Bernardin, are the two suspects in this murder.What’s not clear, is why the suspects stabbed the homeowner to death only to abandon the stolen car and return to the lagoon just blocks from the scene of the crime.Carlsbad Police Chief Neil Gallucci says after this tragedy his prayers are with the family and while the accused homeless couple remains in custody, police will continue collecting evidence and building their case.Bushee and James are both being held without bail pending arraignment scheduled for Wednesday afternoon.

The two had remained cordoned off since Edward’s July 28 birth to allow them to bond and the 243- pound calf to build up stamina and weight. He weighed 148 pounds at birth.“The second they entered the exhibit, Victoria just took off, running laps, and it was so fun to see Edward running right along beside her,” Safari Park Senior Keeper Jill Van Kempen said. “He was very energetic, sometimes breathing heavily, and even getting all four feet off the ground at times.”After circling the enclosure, the two rhinos stopped to take a mud bath. The instinctive behavior keeps the rhinos cool while also acting as a bud repellant and sunscreen.Edward is the 99th southern white rhino calf born at the Safari Park and the first such calf to be born through artificial insemination in North America. His birth represents a step toward the zoo’s longer-term goal of recovering the northern white rhino, a distant relative of the southern white rhino. Only two northern white rhinos still exist on the planet and both are female.Zoo officials aim to use stem cells and preserved northern white rhino cells to birth a northern white rhino calf within 10-20 years. The zoo’s southern white rhinos would serve as surrogates for the northern white rhino embryos through artificial insemination, in-vitro fertilization or an embryo transfer.If the plan proves successful, researchers could attempt similar assisted reproduction techniques with the critically endangered Sumatran and Javan rhinos.The Safari Park is expecting a second southern white rhino birth in September or October. The zoo announced that calf’s conception through artificial insemination last September. last_img read more
