Belive it or not !!!
The world's smallest car, the Peel 50, nestled between vans in central London on Thursday. The vehicle, built in the 1960s, is going on display at Ripley's Believe It Or Not museum in the capital.
Believe It or Not!, an American vegetarian held 11 Madagascan Hissing Cockroaches in his mouth for ten seconds to beat the world record. Previously, the record was only nine of the two-to-three inch insects. Mr. Fessler, the champ, is no stranger to the bugs: he owns over 1,000 as pets
Gunter Voelker owns a German restaurant in Northern Iraq and was proud to recently present a German tradition: Oktoberfest! The festivities included traditional German food, music and beer. He was glad to share the event with Iraqi people, Turkish people, Kurdish people, Americans and Germans alike. Voelker hoped the three-day party helped to show Iraq as a holiday destination where beer can bring people together. Believe It or Not!
A Malaysian woman threw back a baby shark after she discovered it had legs with webbed feet. The baby shark was about a meter long and would have made a great lunch for her family, but according to Chinese belief, eating fish with unusual features could bring bad luck or disaster, so they decided not to chance it. She did manage to get a picture before returning it to the fishery. Scientists say the animal must have come from northern waters because only North Sulawesi or South African waters have fish with legs. Believe It or Not
At only one-year-old, Buffy the hen has to wear a sweater to keep warm as the fall approaches because she lost all her feathers. The hen was rescued by the RSPCA from a battery farm where she was over stressed; causing her to lose her feathers and be more than two pounds underweight. Buffy’s health had been restored, and her lack of feathers has made her a bit of a celebrity at the animal shelter! Believe It or Not!
100% duck, all chicken. This Chinese duck was purchased by a farmer, but he noticed something was wrong when the duck wouldn't go swim the the river with the other ducks. Ten days after the purchase, the farmer finally realized that the bird has chicken feet! Instead of the webbed toes of a duck that help in swimming, all its toes are separate. This is probably why it's scared of the water. Believe It or Not!
