Can you guess NZ's best beach??

Once again, Mt Maunganui Beach was voted New Zealand's best beach last week, by the travel company Trip Advisor. This is the 6th consecutive year that this beautiful beach has one the award. In close second, was Piha Beach, followed by Hot Water Beach in Coromandel.
I agree with the poll, because this beach has so much room for lots of people and it has beautiful white sand  and great surf.
What is your favourite Beach in New Zealand?

Woman bitten on the bottom by python!

An Australian woman who was going to the toilet was bitten by a python on her bottom. While on the toilet she felt something bite her which caused a moment of panic. She initially thought it was a frog but with more information she had found a carpet python in her toilet. She called snake patrol and the frightened snake was released back into the wild. Thankfully we don't have snakes in New Zealand so we do not worry about this problem at all.

Would you like to know the new marine animal discovered?


Scientists have found a new species of orca (killer whale). Early this year these animals appeared from nowhere. The team was researching it off the coast of Chile in South America.
The orca has a different shape and different patterns which makes it different type of orca. Scientists don't know why but they just appeared.
