Trilobite plushie

The Trilobite Plushie by the Paleontological Research Institution in Ithaca, New York is a cuddly stuffed replica of Greenops boothi, a trilobite that lived 380 million years ago.

A Group of Hungry Sheep Stop to Snack on a Hedge While Rushing Down a Street in Venice, Italy

An enormous flock of sheep—with some goats and a donkey thrown in for good measure—rush down a street in Venice, Italy while a group of the animals stop for a quick bite off a hedge outside a home, much to the dismay of the man who lives there.

Some farmers were herding their goats their sheep and passing by my house, unfortunately for my neighbor they were clearly hungry and stopped for a snake on his hedge. No sheep were hurt during the filming of this video, can’t say the same for the hedge.

A Set of Giant Wind-Up Teeth Painted on the Abandoned Dolphinarium Discotheque in Tel Aviv

Wind up teeth closer

Street artist Dede painted the Dolphinarium discotheque in Tel Aviv, using the building’s rounded shape to create a giant (non-functional) set of wind-up teeth, complete with a giant key. The Dolphinarium, now abandoned, was the site of a suicide bombing on June 1, 2001 that killed 21 people and injured 120 others.

The artist wrote about the piece on Facebook:

Without any doubt the biggest art challenge I have ever had. This piece was hard to achieve.
Stormy nights, high rollers from the ground, the all deal. But it had to be done, I had this vision for almost a year now.

This landmark is found in the middle of continuing ownership arguments, another real estate bite in Tel-Aviv’s view.
