Not all heroes wear capes. Some wear prosthetic tails. Meet Mr. Stubbs, an American alligator that lost its tail several years ago while being illegally transported by a group of animal-traffickers.

After being found in the back of a semi-truck loaded with other exotic animals in 2013, Mr. Stubbs was brought to the Phoenix Herpetological Society. He was then fitted with his first prosthetic tail, made from the cast of a similarly-sized dead alligatorís appendage.

This method proved to be a bit clunky, as each gator has a center of mass and buoyancy specific to itself. Using a prosthetic from a molding of another alligatorís tail didnít give Mr. Stubbs the best opportunity to easily move about. As the gator matured, it eventually outgrew this and subsequent artificial tails.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os∑mo∑sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
