A fearsome fish has started killing people after feeding on human corpses, scientists fear.

They reckon that a huge type of catfish, called a goonch, may have developed a taste for flesh in an Indian river where bodies are dumped after funerals.

Locals have believed for years that a mysterious monster lurks in the water. But they think it has moved on from scavenging to snatching unwary bathers who venture into the Great Kali, which flows along the India-Nepal border.

The extraordinary creature has been investigated by biologist Jeremy Wade for a TV documentary to be shown in Britain.

“The locals have told me of a theory that this monster has grown extra large on a diet of partially burnt corpses,” Wade said. “It has perhaps got this taste for flesh by feasting on remains of funeral pyres. There will be a few freak individuals that grow bigger than the other ones and if you throw in extra food, they will grow even bigger.”

That's the "Gutting Claw", used by the Yeti to disembowel yaks in one swift move. The Yeti hides in the snow until the yak steps over it, at which point it rips out it's bowels and ties it's legs with it so it doesn't run away.

Some guys at a UCONN party I went to way back in the day had a nine foot long python named 'Monty'. They lived down the hall. Monty generally hung out with the beer keg, slithering from party goer to party goer as they topped off (the usual circle of people around the keg providing plenty of people to slither onto). I remember thinking that if someone passed out and no one kept track of the snake that there could be a problem. He was largely docile but tightened up a little too much for comfort around my neck at one point.

Dockworker Marcy Ingall saw a giant wave in the distance last Tuesday afternoon and stopped in her tracks. It was an hour before low tide in Maine's Boothbay Harbor, yet without warning, the muddy harbor floor suddenly filled with rushing, swirling water.

In 15 minutes, the water rose 12 feet, then receded. And then it happened again. It occurred three times, she said, each time ripping apart docks and splitting wooden pilings.

"It was bizarre," said Ingall, a lifelong resident of the area. "Everybody was like, 'Oh my God, is this the end?' " It was not the apocalypse, but it was a rare phenomenon, one that has baffled researchers. The National Weather Service said ocean levels rapidly rose in Boothbay, Southport, and Bristol in a matter of minutes around 3 p.m. on Oct. 28 to the surprise of ocean watchers. Exactly what caused the rogue waves remains unknown.

Diablo Canyon Power Plant in Avila Beach shuts down one of its reactors Tuesday night and ramped another one down to half power after an influx of marine life affected the units water pumps.
Currently, both nuclear reactors are stable.
Crews have been working all day to clean equipment and restore power.
It is the second time a reactor has been shut down this year. In August, the power plant kept one reactor offline for almost a month after a transformer fire.
A Diablo Canyon marine biologist said he does not know what brought them to the plant but a large number of jelly fish caused the shut down.
