On the Frontiers of Anthropology I had a recent posting on King Tut's skull, which was not mentioned here yet, but it is now the second blog entry back. Today I re-posted one of Karl Shuker's blogs about the last wooly mammoths in England because I found the date given was the same as the mass extinction event worldwide, and possible evidence of a worldwide cataclysm. With my additional commentary after Karl's posting, not otherwise altering Karl's information in the least:

So my mystery fish is Gymnothorax rueppellii - Damn! I had hoped that it would be a freshwater species and that I could think of an excuse to add some to the CFZ aquariums.
As far as the peculiar happenstance is concerned, just remember what Doc said to me many years ago:
"There's no such thing as a coincidence, you Saxon eejit!"
And so say all of us.
Due to renovation closed for a year but since the end of 2010 the archive of Bernard Heuvelmans at the Swiss Zoological Museum Lausanne (Musee Cantonal de Zoologie Lausanne) is now again accessible to researchers. New pictures from there thanks to Christoph Kummer (Sasquat.com, Switzerland) and permission of Oliver Glazoit (Musee Cantonal de Zoologie Lausanne).
The next issue of "Kraken" will be published in June 2011 according to Olivier Glazoit from the Museum. Due to a lack of internal ressources to continue the publishing this also will be the last one. Only for a short time I personally hope.
The whole story with pics:
On this day in 1930, according to the BBC, nothing newsworthy happened at all. As a result the news bulletin is said to have consisted of the newsreader announcing this and then silence.
