What a crock: today's weird news

If you thought your day was bad....

Reuters reports: A Japanese biker failed to notice his leg had been severed below the knee when he hit a safety barrier, and rode on for 2 km (1.2 miles), leaving a friend to pick up the missing limb.

The BBC reported: An Australian rancher has described how he spent seven days up a tree in remote bushland to escape crocodiles. He only had two meat sandwiches to keep him going, as crocodiles moved beneath his tree each night until his rescue. Mr George, manager of the Silver Plains cattle station near Coen in Queensland's far north, said he was stalked each night by two crocodiles that would sit at the bottom of the tree staring at him. "All I could see was two sets of red eyes below me and all night I had to listen to a big bull croc bellowing a bit further out," he said.

The Scotsman reports that Khenar, a crocodile, dove out of a 12th floor window in a block of flats in Russia after trying to escape. It was the third time the animal had used that method to flee. It lost a tooth in the latest fall but was otherwise unscathed.
