While not exactly a new critter this little mole is a great find:

Swims through sand - how many of us as little kids faced with a really dry sandy beach tried to swim on it?
As for the lizard near the end of the piece - I just hope nobody finds one of those lurking under the sheets at the foot of their bed...

8-Foot Alligator Busts Through Florida Home's Front Door and Invades Woman's Kitchen
"Only in Florida are you going to get an alligator in the house," the woman who encountered the reptile said...

On March 28, the woman heard banging at the front screen door of her home in the Grand Palm Community in Venice, FOX 13 reported.

"I thought it was somebody else who didn't live here trying to get into the wrong house," Hollenback told the outlet.

In response to the commotion, the woman got up from the couch and checked who was at the door. She didn't find a confused person. Instead, she was faced with a sizable alligator.

Sent to a farm. Just life death row inmates. Don’t blame them. A gator home invasion.

They're not as stupid as some would believe.

Sumatran orangutan becomes first wild animal seen using medicinal plant to treat wound.

A Sumatran orangutan has become the first wild animal seen self-medicating with a plant to heal a wound.

The male orangutan, named Rakus, had sustained a wound on his cheek pad, most likely from fighting other males, researchers said in a study published in the journal Scientific Reports.

Rakus was seen chewing liana leaves without swallowing them, then using his fingers to apply the resulting juice onto the wound, the researchers said.

Finally, he covered the wound up completely with a paste he had made by chewing the leaves and continued feeding on the plant.

Five days after he was seen applying the leaf paste onto the wound it was closed, and a month later barely visible.........
Cheers,

Hey! lizard, lizard, lizard you don't belong here.
'Stay in the car:' It wasn't a gator or iguana. Woman videos 'huge' monitor lizard near Florida road
Monitor lizards can grow up to 5 feet long, have long tails and are active during the day.

Elusive 'octopus squid' with world's largest biological lights attacks camera in striking new video
In the footage, the squid suddenly appears from the darkness and darts toward the camera, engulfing it with its arms before making a quick getaway. Moments before latching onto the camera, the squid shows off a pair of bright, light-emitting organs, known as photophores, at the tips of two of its arms.

This species' photophores — which emit bursts of light as a result of a chemical reaction — are the largest of their kind in the animal kingdom, researchers wrote in the statement. But scientists have rarely seen the squids' biological lights used in action.

Bear falls from tree at Pennsylvania school
A young black bear fell from a tree in Pennsylvania on Tuesday, landing in a giant bed of tarp held by a group of rescue officials who sedated it following reports of the bruin stalking a suburban neighbourhood.

The grizzly, which did not appear to be fully grown, was spotted around lunchtime in the residential area of Camp Hill, just outside the state capital of Harrisburg.
