"Little-Known" Attractions of Lynchburg and Central Virginia A RetroWeb page, Copyright © 2014 If you are looking for Point of Honor, The Academy Theater, Poplar Forest, Natural Bridge or other more well-known attractions of Lynchburg and Central Virginia, you will not find them on this web page. Instead, what you will find documented here are several lesser-known, unusual, sometimes esoteric, occasionally bizarre and, in almost all cases, absurd attractions of the area, along with an equally-absurd accompanying "history." Not every attraction will appeal to everyone, but hopefully you will find something of interest. The Fletcher Farm Rhino In the mid 1980's, Harland Fletcher returned to Virginia from Africa with a baby white rhinoceros he had purchased for a children's zoo in Richmond. The "ABC" Cemetery Off of Rt. 122 near Bedford, one can find a most unusual cemetery. In 1992, Aadland found himself near death, and he realized that he would no longer be able to maintain the cemetery, much less continue to shuffle the grave sites.

The Pacific Northwest Tree Octopus Rare photo of the elusive tree octopus The Pacific Northwest tree octopus (Octopus paxarbolis) can be found in the temperate rainforests of the Olympic Peninsula on the west coast of North America. An intelligent and inquisitive being (it has the largest brain-to-body ratio for any mollusk), the tree octopus explores its arboreal world by both touch and sight. Reaching out with one of her eight arms, each covered in sensitive suckers, a tree octopus might grab a branch to pull herself along in a form of locomotion called tentaculation; or she might be preparing to strike at an insect or small vertebrate, such as a frog or rodent, or steal an egg from a bird's nest; or she might even be examining some object that caught her fancy, instinctively desiring to manipulate it with her dexterous limbs (really deserving the title "sensory organs" more than mere "limbs",) in order to better know it.

Lichtblau, University of Illinois, Champaign, Illinois Nadya Karpook, University of Florida, Gainesville, Florida Carolyn Chou, University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Anthony Arena-DeRosa, Harvard University, Cambridge, Massachusetts A feline subject reacts to a photograph of a man with a full dark semicircular beard. Abstract Cats were exposed to photographs of bearded men. Findings of Prior Investigators Boone (1958) found inconclusive results in studying feline reactions to clean-shaven men. Norquist (1988) performed a series of experiments in which cats were exposed to photographs of Robert Bork (not pictured here), a man whose beard is confined largely to the underside of the jaw. Materials Five photographs were used in the study. The test subjects were female cats, all between the ages of four and six. 214 cats participated in the study. Methods Results Notes
