Animal Best Friends: 350 Pound Lion and Adorable Dachshund

Sometimes the most unlikely friendships come in the cutest of places, and that is especially true with these animal best friends. Bonedigger and his best friend 7 year old Milo live together at an animal park in Oklahoma. They were united by their caretaker John and even since have become the best of pals. Not a day goes by that the two unlikely chums don’t spend enjoying the sun and each other’s company. Though Bonedigger enjoys playing with some of the other dachshunds at the park, Milo is without a doubt his best pal. Check out some pics of the two friends below, and be sure to watch the video at the end of the page as well!

Look Out For These Deadly Fish the Next Time You Soak Your Feet

Planning a summer trip to the ocean soon? Well, be careful where you step! One of these five deadly fish might be waiting in the the water for you!

Pufferfish

Though extremely dangerous if not prepared by a well-trained chef, the pufferfish is considered a delicacy in many regions. But be warned, one mistake in preparation can send one into a coma or even death. Its deadly tetrodotoxin causes numbness in the mouth and lips, vomiting or paralysis. It is typically found in the Philippines, Thailand, and the United States.

Stonefish

Watch your step the next time you soak your feet. The stonefish, named because of its ability to camouflage itself on the sea floor, where unwitting bathers become subject to severe pain. Sticking to freshwater, or even the beach isn’t fool proof however – stonefish are sometimes found in river beds and can live up to 24 hours without oxygen.

Lionfish

Some species of this typically Indo-Pacific venomous fish have begun making their way to the Caribbean and United States east coast. Efforts have been made to control, or even eradicate, the lionfish in these areas but officials are not confident this will happen. Avoid reefs and corals for the time being as this is one of their preferred habitats.

Stingray

Like the stonefish, a large part of the stingray’s danger lies in its ability to conceal itself on the ocean floor. Most attacks are very painful but normally not life threatening. They are found in all types of aquatic environments throughout the world.

Boxfish (trunkfish)

These species are closely related to the pufferfish, though are less dangerous. They are normally found in the Atlantic, Indian, and Pacific oceans. When threatened, the boxfish excretes toxic mucus to ward off any nearby predators.
