Man Attacked By Crocodile Battles for Survival. Paramedics and other first responders tell the Guardian the encounter took place on Jan. 20 in Lake Placid, located in Cairns.
The man, described by paramedic Paul Sweeney as a “fit individual,” was enjoying the water when he felt a “sudden impact,” then realized he had a crocodile clamped onto his head. Sweeney tells 9News that the man believed the crocodile to be between 5 feet and 6.5 feet long. The man managed to pry the croc off of him using his hands, then took a “slow swim” back to shore, all the while fearful he’d be attacked again, Sweeney notes, per the Guardian. The man—who Sweeney tells ABC Australia has been swimming at the lake several times a week for eight years or so, and who was “remarkably calm” about the whole thing—was taken to a nearby hospital, where he was found to be in stable condition.

Article body copy In 1995, scientists tossed 33 car tires into the Pacific Ocean.

Sea otters are more vulnerable to oil spills than any other marine mammal. They lack the blubber that keeps whales, seals, walruses, and other marine mammals warm, and instead rely on dense fur that traps a layer of insulating air close to the body.
Anything that compromises the waterproofing of that fur can bring an otter down quickly. “It’s the reason we focus on them,” says Colleen Young, an environmental scientist with the California Department of Fish and Wildlife. Oil spills cause damage that is often varied and widespread. This Rescued King Penguin Loved Going To The Fish Market So Much That His Family Taught Him How To Buy Fish On His Own.
