A GIANT cow which stands more than 6ft 4ins tall and weighs the same as a family hatchback is so big it's been saved from the chop.

Knickers, a seven-year-old Holstein Friesian, is more than twice the size of the rest of the herd in Myalup, Western Australia.

The combined length of the snakes caught so far is more than two miles, while they have collectively weighed more than 11 tons.

Penniston alone is credited with eliminating 235 snakes, the second-most in the program, while Miami resident Brian Hargrove comes in at first place with 257 snakes caught, the agency said.

Oh deer! Kentucky hunter shoots dead buck with colossal antlers - only to discover the HEAD of a foe dangling from its horns

Hunter shoots dead buck which has the severed head of another deer dangling from its

Bob Long from Kentucky got two buck heads (pictured) with one shot. One of the rutting stags had clearly come out on top and had been roaming for weeks with his rival's head caught in its antlers. Sergeant Tony Dunker of Kentucky Fish and Wildlife said the decaying head belonged to a deer who had been dead for weeks after doing battle with his foe. During the rutting season, stags will lock horns and Dunker believes they may have been sparring for females. Local residents had seen the live deer wandering around with the grim trophy attached to its head in the days before Long made his shot.

Giraffes, elephants and lions wander through the SNOW after blizzards hit Africa 

Giraffes, elephants and lions spotted walking in snow in South Africa

South Africa has just moved from winter into spring but a late cold snap blanketed parts of the country in snow at the weekend, creating some strange scenes in usually arid areas. Kitty Viljoen lives in the Eastern Cape, which bore the brunt of the snowfall, and captured giraffes and elephants toughing out the freezing conditions. A lion was also spotted making its way through the white landscape, standing out like a sore thumb with its yellow coat which is normally hidden by dried-out grass. Wildebeest were also photographed trudging across the wintry landscape.

Smile! Photographer swims just inches from vicious crocodiles in Mexico to snap the reptiles and prove they do not always attack humans 

Photographer swims just inches from deadly crocodiles in Mexico

American photographer Alex Suh (inset) has travelled to the Banco Chinchorro reef, in Mexico, three times in the past three years to get into the waters and capture the crocodiles in their natural habitat. The pictures, taken in July, show the photographer just inches away from the carnivorous crocs who seem more than happy to pose for the camera. Alex, who works in shark conservation and is the founder of Save My Fin, is a strong believer that humans and wild animals can co-exist and that crocodiles are not automatic killers. The American crocodile can only be found within the US in Florida and has experienced a resurgence after nearly disappearing from the state entirely during the 1970s.

mile please! Huge crocodiles offer up toothy grins as they are pictured swimming alongside brave models (with no trick photography in sight)

Brave models pictured swimming alongside huge CROCODILES in Mexico

Photographer Ken Kiefer took a two-hour boat ride with his wife, Kimber, and another model Melodie Trevino to reach the carnivorous beasts at Chinchorro Banks in Mexico. To avoid the need for trick photography - and any of the crocs getting snap happy - the photographer brought along safety divers who can be seen in some of the shots. Explaining his crazy idea, Mr Kiefer, 49, said: 'Kimber and I were thrilled to be able to finally get in and create images with these magnificent predators. It is one of those places whose sheer beauty and immensity is overwhelming.'

He's behind you! Boy, six, plays with an inflatable alligator in Florida backyard... unaware there is a REAL one just feet away (so can you spot it?)

Florida boy plays with inflatable alligator in backyard while real one lurks nearby

In the video, Nicole Mojica's son, Timmy, can be seen whizzing down a slip and slide in their backyard in Lake Nona, Orlando. At first, all seems innocent in the Facebook post. Timmy throws his toy alligator around and his mother can be heard saying: 'Summer fun, another day.'

The lion who lost his pride: Frail old lion is pictured as he starves to death after being cast out by his family in South Africa 

Old lion is pictured starving to death in South Africa

The lion, known as Skybed Scar, was well known in Kruger National Park, South Africa, but was kicked out of his pride and grew emaciated before finally succumbing to hunger. Heart-breaking images show his sad decline with his ribs clearly visible in his once powerful body. He is pictured inset lying dead in the grass. At one point, the weak animal, in his final days, was chased by an elephant.

Dino dog! World's biggest puppy bred to recreate an extinct 7,000-year-old monster pooch is 6ft tall and already weighs more than an average human at nine months old

World's biggest puppy in Utah stands six feet tall

A nine-month-old dog that weighs 12 stone (180lb) and stands six-foot-tall is the world's biggest puppy, according to its owner. Enormous Euphrates was bred to replicate a prehistoric canine species and eats an impressive eight cups of dog food a day. She is a member of a new breed called the American Molossus, selectively bred to be the closest genetic descendent of the Mesopotamian Molossus, a massive dog species that died out 7,000 years ago. The only remnants of the ancient canines left are in museums, with some account suggesting they were used in battle by ancient Mesopotamian tribes. After calling hundreds of breeders and Guinness World Records, owner Jared Howser (inset), 41, of Salt Lake City, Utah, believes he own's the largest puppy in the world.

She's got a monkey on her back! Hilarious moment primate appears to be riding a giraffe in perfectly-timed photograph

Monkey appears to be riding a giraffe in perfectly-timed picture

Dirk-Jan Steehouwer, 48, who is from The Netherlands, was at the Murchison Falls National Park in Uganda photographing a troop of monkeys when a giraffe strolled into the frame. For one brief moment a primate sitting in a tree appeared to be sitting on the giraffe's back instead, and thanks to Mr Steehouwer's quick reactions he was able to capture this image. He said: 'This is what I do it for, fantastic moments when nature keeps on surprising me and motivating me to go back and back.'
