The Jersy Devil may be true but scientists are still investigating and there have been many reports on the sight of the Jersy Devil.
Did you know that tornados can go up to 230 miles per hour?
Tarantulas are the largest spiders in the world, and in spite of how they are portrayed in the movies, are not really dangerous to humans. Tarantulas spend most of their lives underground in burrows; they sit by the entrance at night and wait for insects and other small animals to wander too close. Most people see tarantulas during mating season, when males leave their burrows and search for the burrows of adult females. Males live to be 10 or 11 years old; they die after mating. Females can live 25 years or more; they can mate and lay eggs several times during their lives.

Maples are mostly trees growing to 10-45 meters (30-145 ft) in height. Others are shrubs less than 10 meters tall with a number of small trunks originating at ground level. Most species are deciduous, but a few in southern Asia and the Mediterranean region are evergreen. Most are shade-tolerant when young, and are often late-successional in ecology; many of the root systems are typically dense and fibrous. A few species, notably Acer cappadocicum, frequently produce root sprouts, which can develop into clonal colonies.
Maples are distinguished by opposite leaf arrangement. The leaves in most species are palmate veined and lobed, with 3-9 (rarely to 13) veins each leading to a lobe, one of which is central or apical. A small number of species differ in having palmate compound, pinnate compound, pinnate veined or unlobed leaves. Several species, including Acer griseum (Paperbark Maple), Acer mandshuricum (Manchurian Maple), Acer maximowiczianum (Nikko Maple), and Acer triflorum (Three-flowered Maple), have trifoliate leaves. One species, Acer negundo (Box-elder), has pinnately compound leaves that may be simply trifoliate or may have five, seven, or rarely nine leaflets. A few, such as Acer laevigatum (Nepal Maple) and Acer carpinifolium (Hornbeam Maple), have pinnately-veined simple leaves.
It is assumed that hatchlings live out their "lost years" in rafts of sargassum and/or debris in open ocean drift lines. They remain part of this drifting community and grow to 40 or 50 cm carapace length. They then migrate to the shallower coastal waters which become their foraging habitat.
It is interesting that some loggerheads live in turbid, detritus-laden, muddy bottom bays and bayous of the northern Gulf Coast, while others choose to live in the clear waters of the Bahamas and Antilles, in habitats we more closely associate with tropical marine turtles. Nothing is known about why these creatures would select such vastly different habitats, or even if there is any movement from one to the other.
