7 inmates dead, 17 injured in South Carolina prison fighting

The maximum-security facility in Bishopville houses about 1,500 inmates, some of South Carolina's most violent and longest-serving offenders.

A South Carolina prisons spokesman says seven inmates are dead and 17 others required outside medical attention after hours of fighting inside a maximum security prison.

You never know where you will have a unique wildlife encounter. This redheaded centipede was found in a department store dressing room!

As far as invertebrates go, the giant redheaded centipede is one bad dude. In the wild, these centipedes may reach 8 in. in length and can get even bigger in captivity.

Why txpwd, why must you keep posting these disgusting terrifying centipedes. Can't a girl get a cute owl or something instead?!

I swear I'm the one person here who WANTS to see these things. Five years in Texas, and not ONCE! has one crossed my path. If you find one, please tell me and I will drop everything and take it away for you (and maybe dress it in doll clothes and have a myriapod tea party...)

In what city was the department store in which the dressing room had this centipede?

i ran into one of those when i was sunbathing on a big rock camping. I looked backward and it was slithering along the overhang next to me. Oh mah gawwwww. My lizard brain told me to RUN PREDATOR ALERT! even though it was only about 8" long.

Almost stepped on one in the morning on my way to my bathroom. So glad I didn't but was totally freaked out trying to figure out how to capture it without touching it.

By the look of that carpet I'm gonna guess it was a Beall’s store in a small rural town?

OMG that I have seen and the game warden said it was the largest one he had seen. They kept it. It was in our cabin.

I spent about 10 minutes attacking on with a John Deere riding mower 😂 ... neighbors wondered why I kept going back and forth, back and forth...

They make interesting, ah, pets; in a secure container. Build a desert environment with a water feature, feed it crickets. More interesting than goldfish.

I was bitten by one, and yes, it was painful! It bit my left shoulder blade and instantly started swelling and pussing out in streams. It left a red line where it walked along my back and neck. Over the course of a week, the swelling traveled towards the center of my back and all the way down to my tailbone by the time it dissipated.

I had one in my night pants once. Got my inner thigh and two more places to my calf. It SUCKED. Kill them all.

Had a first floor apt on the fringe of San Marcos when I was going to school there. During the summer, these things would crawl up on my patio while I was barefoot, drinking beer and just relaxing. Hilarity ensued, as my neighbors saw me standing on top of a camp chair smacking the crap out of the cement with a flip-flop trying to kill the damn things. Truth be told, I was a little on edge considering I found brown recluses all over that apartment when I first moved in.

I was at Copper Breaks Park near Quanah Texas many years ago and encountered one during a nature walk. I had never seen one before in person. It was huge! Close to a foot in length. Never knew they got so large.

While living in the Caribbean, one crawled across my neck in my bed, woke me up....screaming. I won.

Saw one of these in our backyard a couple days ago, but not nearly as scary as the one that dropped on my lap while I was working at my desk a few years ago.

Now, for the rest of my life, that will be on my mind when entering a dressing room! 😳😳😳

My husband was putting his jeans on one morning and one of these fell out of his pant leg ...I about died

If one gits in my clothes, I’ll show him some wildlife!

Um, the centipede would be dead and the clothes would have a squished bug stain on them. 😱👀

Woke up with one of those on my face camping at the Frio River.

These critters scare me more than scorpions and spiders.i can smash scorps.and spiders.centipedes move fast and look like snakes that i hate also. JUST STAY OUT OF MY HOUSE.!!

So much more fun showering with the tree frogs on GOOSE ISLAND

Had a big one crawl across my foot one afternoon sitting at a picnic table at the lake. He went on about his business but interrupted mine...😬

Had one in the backroom at work. Late in the night. It became a legend unseen, until I caught it in a repack. Released to hunt again.

My kids and I run into these in our garden. I like to move them farther from the house so my dogs won't get hurt by their own curiosity 😖

Lake Palestine has one of the best trophy flathead catfish populations in the state. In fact, it's held the state record at 98.50 pounds for 20 years! Today inland fisheries staff from around the state are at the lake sampling these big fish during what we call the "catfish rodeo."

I hope y’all publish your findings vs the last time y’all tested

Ok for Research

Go to the north end of the lake ... in th stumps .you should find a big one ...it has been a few years ago when my dad was still alive we have caught some big ones

What’s the biggest you’ve been able to shock up?

How are y’all catching these to do your sampling?

Correction...five boats

I thought shocking was illegal.

Erik Fries Dan Fries Speaking of "flatheads"

Brandon Gray, I'm pretty sure you've reeled in one at least that size at lake Palestine! 🐟

Bryce Hudson Efren Meza Justin Holcombe bet yall cant catch like this here one

Just saw three boats float by with "biologists " on the side. Wondered what they were.

Deanna Bodine jace thinks it's the coolest thing to see his friends dad on video

Greg Lee. Time for some catfishing!

Thanks for sharing this with us Rick.

So y’all just out there telephonein?

To all my fishermen friends!

(But don’t eat ‘em...)

Jason Luke Harms didn’t we follow the record setting fish to find a certified scale while we were looking for a break pin for my motor?

I've always been curious about the amount of crashes caused by mechanical failure. Any numbers on that?

It should read "Keep your Head up and Live " You Text/Talk while driving you might DIE! We all know that no one is enforcing the law when it comes to texting and talking on the cell phone so why not be real and tell them what could happen!!! The lady driving this car admitted to reading a text.... The crash happened in front of my home!

What about crashes that are caused because you TX DOT have not properly striped roads that are under construction and you can't figure out which lane you are supposed to be in? I am referring specifically to Highway 290, outbound, between Senate and West/Eldridge exits.

I bet that was a mess!!!

Houston’s infrastructure is horrible I’ve lived here my whole entire life my whole families from here all the way back to my great great great grandma

If you think Houston is bad, try LA, NYC, or the Windy City. Never lived in either, but I know Houston like the back of my hand and been alllllll over the others. When I come back home from those places I appreciate Houson traffic soooooo much

How many more decades until I-35W in FT. Worth is finished between I-30 & N. Tarrant Pkwy?

you broke it, so now you fix it! Like the crane running into one of our bridges here in El Paso and now it will be closed for awhile!

...and then bridge repair to last into the fall. js

So this is why we took 59 instead

Man

You've got this!

Clumsy on land, beavers are stream-lined swimmers that can travel 5-6 miles an hour. Here’s more: bit.ly/TxBeavers

Ray Roberts Lake State Park Isle du Bois - Texas Parks and Wildlife
Lumberjack, architect, and engineer all rolled up into one big ball of fur, the beaver is truly a renaissance critter! While they are slow and vulnerable on land, beavers are natural swimmers and will never stray too far from the safety of water. They even go to great lengths to create their own lakes and ponds by damming streams and rivers.
Thanks to Ranger Daniel for this great video!

Perfect timing! We have a pond about 10 yards from our house and a beaver was zipping back and forth in it all day long on Sunday. It was the first time my kids saw a real wild beaver -- and right in our backyard! They saw (and heard) the big splash its tail did and how it groomed itself. Now I have an article to read to them about beavers in Texas too.

Awesome job Ranger Daniel!
