Bank mistakenly deposits $37m into woman’s account
A woman in the United States discovered her bank account had more than $37 million in it — but it turned out to be a clerical error. Rush Balloon of Dallas said she checked her account balance at LegacyTexas Bank and was shocked to see $37,203,337 in the account that she couldn’t explain. “I was like, ‘wow, we have a lot of money,’” she told KTVT-TV.
Balloon said she told her husband about the mysterious fortune and he called the bank. LegacyTexas Bank told the couple the money was the result of a clerical error and the mistake was corrected. “I was a millionaire, I have a screen shot of it so I can say that now,” Balloon said. “It’s quite a story.”
Chimpanzee washes clothes with soap bar at Chinese zoo
The zookeeper at Leheledu Zoo, surnamed Xu, said she noticed the curious primate intently observing her scrubbing her clothes in basin. She decided to leave a T-shirt, soap and brush beside a small pool of water in the animal’s enclosure, just to see what would happen.
“I never intended to teach him, but he watched me nonstop so I wondered if he would do it on his own,” said the zookeeper.
Video shows the chimp wandering over to the shallow in-ground pool and after puzzling over the items for a few moments, he picks up the soap and T-shirt and starts imitating how he had seen the zookeeper scrub her clothes. A female chimp is seen casually sitting on top of a nearby trellis, indifferently watching her mate. The video posted by WEVIDEO has received more than four million views.
Two-headed snake discovered in Bengal
Forest Department officials said the two-headed monocled cobra, a venomous species, was discovered in Midnapore City, Bengal. Kaustav Chakraborty, a Forest Department herpetologist, said villagers refused to turn the cobra over to the department because they believe the two-headed creature holds mythological significance.
“This is totally a biological issue like a human being can have two heads or thumbs similarly this snake has two heads. This doesn’t have to do anything related to mythological belief. The longevity of such species increases by keeping them in captivity. The life span of this snake can be increased if it is preserved,” Chakraborty was quoted as saying by ANI News.
