Rare ‘nose and monster’ creature found in icy waters in Northern Canada

The rare fish

A fisherman caught a rare fish in Davis Strait, between Canada's Baffin Island and western Greenland.

Now, researchers from the University of Windsor, have identified the strange fish.

Nigel Hussey, a researcher who works with the Ocean Tracking Network, said that the fish, which was believed to be a goblin shark is actually a "long-nosed chimaera."

The rare species belongs to the Rhinochimaeridae family of fish, named after the Greek terms for nose and monster.

There was only one other such long-nosed fish documented in history, according to Hussey.

Hussey said that there may possibly be many more of these fish deep down in the sea.

"If we fished deeper, perhaps between 1,000 and 2,000 meters, we might find that there is actually quite a lot of them there. We simply do not know,” he said.

Hussey said that the long-nosed creature is related to sharks. It has a whip-like tail and a long nose. They usually grow to about a meter long.

(Scroll down for video) A model who works as a weather girl, stripped naked while being live on television.

Doria Tillier, 27, presented her weather forecast while naked.

Tillier promised to take her clothes off if France pulls off a comeback from 2-0 down against Ukraine, in their play-off match. They did, winning 3-0 at the Stade de France.

Tillier promised to give a bare, yet professional performance live on television.

The video shows the woman running naked in the city of Poil.

She reportedly chose to do it in that city because 'A Poil', in French, means “stark naked.”

Some of Tillier’s fans were disappointed with her naked performance as it was done at a significant distance and they were unable to see her body up close as they had expected.

Tillier was seen circling with nothing on but a pair of boots while screaming. During the strip show, her weather map was up on the screen.

(Scroll down for video) Residents of a gated community are surprised by their neighbor’s decision to leave his fortune to his cats rather than to his family.

Leon Sheppard Sr. of Memphis, Tennessee, left behind a family of five children, 12 grandchildren and six great-grandchildren along with the two cats that he considered family.

Sheppard left his 4,270 square foot home and $250,000 to his cats named Frisco and Jake.

His will states that the money should be used for the care and maintenance of the two cats.

In the will Sheppard wrote: "If their owner sees fit, they can create a trust for the welfare and benefit of the cats," according to his attorney Randy Fishman.

Fishman, who has practiced law for nearly 35 years, admits that this is very unusual, but it is legal. “It is your money, you can do whatever you want with it,” Fishman said.

Neighbors said the Sheppard, who died at the age of 79, loved his cat.

According to the will, the cats must be cared for with the money, but when Frisco dies the rest of the estate can be passed on to the cats’ human heirs.

This is not the first time that a person left their fortune to their pet. New York hotel heiress Leona Helmsley left $12 million for the care of her dog.

A man thought it would be a good idea to prank his girlfriend, but things went very wrong.

He confronted his girlfriend, and confessed about his cheating ways.

"I have to tell you something. It will be the worst thing you have ever heard," Atwood told his girlfriend.

He told Britney that he cheated on her with another woman about three weeks earlier.

Britney broke down crying and said: “how could you do this. We have a family.”

After a few moments, Britney confessed to her boyfriend that she too had been cheating on him.

That is when Atwood went crazy. He hit a lamp and threw things around in the hotel room. “Say what, what did you say?” He asked.

“What did you just say? You did not cheat on me? Be for real, my heart's killing me. Did you cheat on me?" He said in a state of shock.

When she revealed that she had also cheated, Atwood demanded to know who she slept with.

At that point, the girlfriend started laughing and told Atwood that she was joking. She also told him that she saw him hiding the camera, so she decided to turn the joke on him.

She gave her boyfriend a taste of his own medicine.

"I thought he was going to propose to me!" She said.
