Danger, Danger, Danger*

*God, I miss the Crocodile Hunter.

A few years ago I visited the Norfolk Zoo with my family and got to see an animal no one ever talks about: she was very cute, happily walking around and hanging from the branches of the limbs provided in her habitat, and she was a prehensile-tailed porcupine from South America.

That’s right.  In addition to vampire bats, jaguars, piranhas, poison frogs and the thousands of other things that could kill you around the Amazon, a porcupine could drop on your head.

Still, I’d probably have taken that rather than discover through Yahoo! News today that there are such things as land leeches.
