    KIAWAH ISLAND, S.C. — Carrie Moores says she had only seen alligators at the zoo before relocating last year from Connecticut to South Carolina. That changed this week during a chance encounter with a very big gator on the golf links.

She quickly snapped the picture and warned the golfers, who hopped in carts and safely drove off. [Carrie Moores via AP]

There's a good chance at least one spider is staring at you right now, sizing you up from a darkened …

    The total biomass of all adult humans on Earth is estimated to be 287 million tons. Even if you tack on another 70 million-ish tons to account for the weight of kids, it's still not equal to the total amount of food eaten by spiders in a given year, exceeding the total weight of humanity. In other words, spiders could eat all of us and still be hungry. [Times]
