The Wasp Eater

The Wasp Eater
Costa Rica President Luis Guillermo Solis has eaten a wasp live during a media conference at an asphalt plant in Paso Real (Real Step in English). The insect entered his mouth mid-sentence. Unfazed, the president cried, “I ate the wasp, I ate the wasp”. The curiosity here is that in The Earth Emperor’s Eye a ghost wasp haun [...]

Orange Alligator Again

Orange Alligator Again
Another orange alligator has been spied in America. This one was seen in Calabash, North Carolina, the previous sighting was earlier this month in Charleston. So far there’s no indication that the two alligators are connected in any way, but it is rare to come across an orange alligator. Now, Calabash is a small fishing town in Brunswick Cou [...]

The lion and the fox

The lion and the fox
An incredible real-life tale from Mother Nature that appears to capture the essence of The Earth Emperor’s Eye!

Green Elephant

Green Elephant

Who is the Monkey?

Who is the Monkey?
In The Earth Emperor’s Eye, Ben Whittenbury regularly uses the term ‘Monkey Nuts’ to describe his neighbour, whilst Sarah twice rehearses her own playful song, ‘Who is the monkey?’  It’s curious then that a series of monkey selfies are making headlines around the world because of co [...]

Houdini the Hamster

Houdini the Hamster
The UK Chancellor’s escapee hamster has been found after 2 weeks by Freya the cat in an electric box in the Downing Street basement. Perhaps the hamster was called Houdini? Maybe the rodent was fated to be found in the electricity box as a reminder for humanity to ease its energy consumption? Another curiosity is that Freya is a goddes [...]

Dandy Puppy

Dandy Puppy
People have been raving about a puppy born with a stripe of black fur on his white face which resembles a moustache. The Earth Emperor is so fond of his dogs and its uncanny that after making his Nature Champion pledge, Ben grew a moustache and vowed to keep it until he’d achieved his goal. I do love the magic of the Whittenbury Watch
