Chinese farmers have finally caught a 3-foot-long, 11-pound rat that had been terrorizing the city of Shaoyang, according to Yahoo News. Apparently the enormous rat, which was 10 times the weight of an average rat, had been active in Shaoyang for some time, hunting and eating 7-pound fish whole. Eventually, local farmers teamed up to catch the "ratzilla" and put an end to its reign of humongous rodent terror. In parts of China, rat is considered highly nutritious and is often eaten, so the farmers who brought the ratzilla down then dressed...

According to the Daily Mail U.K., scientists have found that more and more of Britain's rats are mutating and becoming immune to sold poisons. Research conducted by Hudersfield University found that 75% of rats in Bristol, Gloucestershire and Wiltshire had built up a resistance. Of the U.K. cities, Bath and Wiltshire's rats have experienced the most serious of mutations. "Some pest control companies are still using the same rodenticides - Bromadiolone and Difenacoum - in areas where there are resistant rats and things ne...

Here's one case in which a second head probably isn't that big of a help. According to WHNS, a family in South Carolina discovered a snake in the yard with a head on each end of its body. The Logan family was puzzled to make the find and are unsure how the creature survives, but have been taking care of the reptile for several weeks. Biology teachers at a nearby high school have identified it as a rouge earth snake, but say they have never seen a mutation like this. A two-headed snake is a rare occurrence, but when they are found, their heads are usually side by side. That this snake has noggins on both ends of its body may make it one-of-a-kind.

One lobster has a bit more pinching power thanks to an extra claw. According to the (U.K.) Daily Mail, the crazy crustacean, nicknamed Claws, was caught in Devon, England and ended up at Jackson's Fish Market. Lobsters normally have a larger claw for crushing and a smaller one for cutting. This lobster sets itself apart by having an additional claw growing from its larger one.

As word has spread around the town, more and more people have been coming to see him. Lots of children have come along." The 3-pound w...

It's a good day when a fisherman is able to catch at least one fish, so it must have truly been Ned Bailey's lucky day when he brought in not one, but two mutant lobsters. According to BBC, both crustaceans -- one with three cutting claws and the second with two sets of crushing claws -- were caught off Falmouth coast in Cornwall, England. Experts suggest that the lobsters might be related and that it could be a "shared genetic mutation." Although it seems unusual, Christine Comery, Blue Reef Aquarium's deputy manager, claims that the lobsters' mutant claws are not unheard of. However, it is pretty outstanding that two were caught in the same trap. "Although no one can be certain...
