Wildlife authorities in Northern Australia probably did a double take after this sighting along a highway: a three-eyed snake. Rangers discovered the 16-inch baby carpet python in March, just outside of a town called Humpty Doo, according to a Facebook post. It was generally agreed that the eye likely developed very early during the embryonic stage of development. It is extremely unlikely that this is from environmental factors and is almost certainly a natural occurrence as malformed reptiles are relatively common. An X-ray of the creature showed it was especially unusual in that it had one skull with an additional eye socket and three functioning eyes, not two separate heads forged together. Prof Bryan Fry speculated the third eye might have been “the last little bit of a twin that’s been absorbed.” The three-eyed snake was nicknamed ― what else? Monty Python.

Snake expert Prof Bryan Fry of the University of Queensland told the BBC that mutations such as an extra eye are a natural part of evolution. “Every baby has a mutation of some sort ― this one is just particularly coarse and misshapen,” Fry said. “I haven’t seen a three-eyed snake before, but we have a two-headed carpet python in our lab ― it’s just a different kind of mutation, like what we see with Siamese twins.” “It’s remarkable it was able to survive so long in the wild with its deformity, and he was struggling to feed before he died last week,” Ranger Ray Chatto told Although the Facebook post showing the three-eyed snake attracted lots of attention, at least one commenter didn’t think the animal was the weirdest part of the story. “Not even disturbed by the three eyed snake … just incredibly amused that there’s a place called Humpty Doo,” Alysha Day wrote.

The Durian Plant (Durio zibethinus)

Around 500 students and staffers were evacuated from the RMIT University library so that 40 firefighters, including masked crews, could investigate the source of the smell, according to the http://Herald Sun . But the smell that aroused suspicions was no leaky pipe. It was a notoriously stinky fruit. The culprit was a Durian left rotting in a cupboard, Melbourne’s Metropolitan Fire Brigade said in a release. Things were out of odor at a university library in Melbourne, Australia, on Saturday afternoon, with fears of a gas leak. according to a http://Herald Sun statement.

Monkey Face Orchid (Dracula simia)

A native of Southeast Asia with an odor that has been compared to ” “turpentine and onions garnished with a gym sock,” Although Aficionados relish Durians for their creamy, sweet interior, the fruits are so polarizing that they’re  banned from Singapore’s subway system and many hotels around Asia, according to http://The Time. This sort of fruit-driven flight would surprise few who have come in contact with the Durian,.  The building was reopened once authorities knew there was no danger. However, Victoria state’s Environment Protection Authority still had the task of removing the foul-smelling fruit from the premises, according to http://The Age.
