A Galapagos giant tortoise estimated to be about 130 years old is returning home after having so much sex that he saved his species. What a stud tortoise? This tortoise whose rampant sex life may have single-handedly saved his entire species from extinction. But now he’s retired from his playboy lifestyle, returning to the wild. Mission accomplished. He was shipped over from the San Diego Zoo to be part of a breeding program on Espanola, which is a part of the Galapagos Islands. A total of fifteen tortoises took part in the breeding program, but nobody was a G like Diego. When he started his campaign of promiscuity there were just two males and 12 females alive on the islands. By the time Diego got in there to put in work, he boosted the population to over 2,000. He is believed to be the patriarch of about 40% of the population. Talk about a hero in a half shell, right?

Amber Helm and her husband Robert had their night and their pizza ruined by a snake. They were cooking up their frozen pizza when they started smelling smoke. So, she opened up the oven and found a snake in the oven along with the pizza. It was 18 inches long and they had no idea how it got into the oven. Amber is no dummy, so she made her husband clean it up. And, just in case you were wondering, they did not eat the pizza. Robert put the oven on self-clean mode and pulled the crispy critter right out. Everyone knows they’re better fried, everyone!

A family in Georgia was on vacation when they got an alert on their phone that their home had been broken into. They had friends go over to check things out, but they didn’t notice anything out of the ordinary from the outside. When they arrived home, they found thousands of dollars’ worth of damage done inside the house. The house was completely ransacked. They found wood chipping from the doors all over the floor. Upon further inspection, all the windows had been damaged. From the outside, it looked like everything was fine, but all the damage was done to the inside the house. You might say it was a terrible burglar. Well, that burglar was a squirrel. They found it just kicking it on the couch. The animal had apparently come down the chimney, couldn’t find its way out, so it was trying to chew through the window, chew through the door, and going crazy inside the house, so he started tearing up the house. The worst part is that the insurance isn’t going to pay for it because the damage done to a property by birds, rodents, and insects is not covered. So now they are stuck paying for it and stuck paying for and new security system to better monitor for squirrel’s inside the house.

Imagine you hear a woman screaming “Let me out” and yelling in pain coming from the home next door. One neighbor did and called the police in Palm Beach County in the Lake Worth area. Sherriff’s Deputies responded to this exact thing. Footage from the homeowner’s security camera shows deputies arriving at the man’s house to find a man working on his wife’s car in the driveway. The Deputies hear a woman screaming “Let me out!” while he’s working on the car. The homeowner then introduced the Deputies to the origin of the cries, His pet parrot. He had taught his pet parrot to say “Let me out” because it was in a cage and he thought it would be funny. Stupid, yes. Hilarious, of course. The homeowner showed off the parrot to the Deputies to Rambo, and they all had a good laugh.
