WHICH ONE ISN'T AN APRIL FOOL?
A giant bull frog in South Africa has become the first in the world to be fitted with a false leg.
Brullie had his shattered lower leg bone replaced with a tiny metal pin during a two-hour operation.
The amphibian went under the knife after being attacked by a dog while hibernating. 'He'll be as good as new,' said owner Anne Mearns, 62.
A farmer has bred the first ever tartan sheep – creating a minor tourist attraction at his farm in Scotland.
Grant Bell has taken to parading the colourful flock across his East Lothian property to the sound of bagpipes.
'The sheep are a great attraction for the public and are the talking point of the area,' Mr Bell said.
A speed camera-hating inventor has covered a car in a special film that blurs the flash from cameras, making it 'invisible' in photos.
The genius, known only as Alberto, used the same film that blurs licence plates.
The make and shape of the car cannot be detected by speed cameras, which Alberto claims leaves him free to speed.
Sky-high prices will be the norm at the world's first flying hotel.
The 18 rooms in the 'hotelicopter' feature sound-proofing and whirlpool baths and are reserved for 'adrenaline junkies seeking a truly unique experience'.
It was made by expert Alvin Farley, who spent five years converting a Russian 137m (450ft) Mil V-12.
