Thai man bloodied but unbowed after intimate attack by snake...

A Thai man is recovering from a bloody encounter with a 10-foot python that slithered through the plumbing of his home and latched its jaws onto his penis as he was using a squat toilet.

Attaporn Boonmakchuay was smiling as Thai television stations interviewed him in his hospital bed about the intimate intrusion, and doctors said he would recover. But photos of his blood-splattered bathroom in Chachoengsao province, east of Bangkok, were testimony to his ordeal.

The 38-year-old said that he struggled to remove the snake for 30 minutes before he managed to free himself with help from his wife and a neighbor. After his wife tied a rope around the snake, Attaporn pried open its jaws before passing out.

Emergency workers dismantled the Asian-style squat toilet, with the python still twined through it. The snake was taken away to be released back into the wild.

Doctors said Attaporn, bloodied but unbowed, will recover.

It seems a huge tiger shark named Chessie likes the South Carolina coast.

Local news outlets report the 1,400-pound shark tagged a year ago was caught again this week off Hilton Head Island by the same fisherman.

Fisherman Chip Michalove first caught Chessie, named for the nearby Chechessie River, in May 2015. Earlier this week he caught the shark about a half-mile offshore.

Chessie has traveled 2,000 miles in the past year and also gained some weight. The shark weighed 1,200 pounds last year.

The tracking is a project of the nonprofit OCEARCH, which works to learn about the movement of sharks. It's most famous subject is Mary Lee, a 3,500-pound tagged great white that routinely makes the news as it wanders along the East Coast.

The feds have a warning for beachgoers in New England during Memorial Day weekend: Don't take selfies with the seals...

Seal pupping season is underway in the region, but people who approach a seal pup on the beach can put both themselves and the animal at risk, the Greater Atlantic Region of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Fisheries said in a statement this week.

"There is no selfie stick long enough!" officials warned. "As tempting as it might be to get that perfect shot of yourself or your child with an adorable seal pup, please do the right thing and leave the seal pup alone."

It is normal behavior for a mother seal to leave her pup on the beach for up to 24 hours while she feeds, experts said. But if the mother sees people near her pup, she might feel it is too dangerous to return and abandon her young, with "devastating" consequences for the pup.

The statement also notes that wild animals act unpredictably and seals can leave a "lasting impression" with their powerful jaws.

"We have received reports of a number of injuries to humans as a result of getting too close to an animal during a quick photo op," officials wrote.

Experts have long warned about the dangers of swimming too close to seals in the water, since seals are a favorite food for sharks and the sharks might not distinguish between people and their intended prey.

Pet owners in Belgium mourning the loss of their deceased furry, scaly or feathered companions can grieve without ever really saying goodbye thanks to niche businesses like Animatrans, a funeral home for animals.

Established in 1995, the Brussels-based company offers a range of services exclusively for pets, including funerals, cremation, formal burials, autopsies and even taxidermy. But it isn’t Belgian animal lovers’ only option to pay a special tribute to their pets.

Operating out of Soignies, just southwest of Brussels, Samsara Eternity also offers unique memorial services and products for pets, like urns decorated with paw prints.
