“Meet the woman dispelling the myths about one of the worlds most feared ocean predators by swimming without protection with great white sharks. Petite beauty Ocean Ramsey travels the globe swimming with many species of sharks hoping to prove they are nothing like their Jaws film reputation.

In these incredible photographs friend Juan Oliphant caught on camera the moment a massive 17-foot Great White let Ocean tail ride through the deep. Shark conservationist Ocean, who is also a scuba instructor, model and freediver, swam with the massive fish in waters off Baja Mexico”. – Caters News

Cat Breeders Discover New Breed of Felines That Look Like Werewolves

1261 Cat Breeders Discover New Breed of Felines That Look Like Werewolves
Tennessee-based breeders have created a new breed of cat with a touch of the supernatural. The ‘Lykoi’ has the looks of a werewolf, but apparently behaves more like a dog. Due to a genetic mutation in a domestic shorthair cat, the Lykoi has no hair around its eyes, nose, ears and muzzle, giving it a werewolfish appearance. The name ‘Lykoi’ loosely translates as ‘wolf cat’ in Greek. The breeders say these cats weren’t created by them but they are a natural mutation.
