BBC - Earth News - Bizarre newt uses ribs as weapons
I want one.
Wow!that really is freaky.
Holy crap! That's Riki-Oh: The Story of Ricky level hardcore right there.
So he's like Wolverine? Does he have an enhanced healing factor?
Newt: Ouch, ahh stop...don't make me laugh...
"Ribbed Newt! Where did you get those scars?"
Seriously though, that's a pretty cool defense mechanism for the newt, but it kind of sucks for him to have to use it.
Apparently, the newt suffers no ill-effects either from shoving it's own ribs through it's skin or the poison it secretes and injects into attackers WITH IT'S RIBS. Ya gotta love evolution, don't you?
I wonder what would happen if one of those ribs were to break during a predator attack. Would that cause ill effects for the newt?
If it doesn't, I want that healing factor.
snikt! lets go, bub!
Aw, I was hoping it would be swinging them around like knives. I was thinking Marrow when I clicked on that link.
THAT is totally badass
That's pretty cool, I just had the same feeling I used to get when I looked at my Wildlife Treasury cards.
Yeah, that is a power not going to be seen on X-Men....
"RibMan, what is your power!"
everyone watches as his ribcage opens up with sharp ribs pointing out...
i was thinking that. imagine if Wolverine could do that with his ribs too.
Cool. In a part of my mind I, too, expected him to just rip them out of his body and use them as little swords, but this is cooler 'cuz it's real.
