3677Longest insect migrationDonald A DavisUSA, Austin,Texas08 April 1989A tagged male monarch (Danaus plexippus), released by Donald A. Davis (Canada) at Presqu'ile Provincial Park near Brighton, Ontario, Canada on 10 September 1988 was recaptured on 8 April 1989 in Austin, Texas, USA. It is assumed that this butterfly spent the winter in Mexico as it would not have been able to survive freezing winter temperatures in Texas. Hence, this butterfly travelled at least 4,635 km (2,880 miles) – a distance obtained by measuring a line from the release site to the overwintering sites and back north again to Austin, Texas, USA. However, the actual distance travelled could be double this figure. A close rival is considered to be the desert locust Schistocerca gregaria found in the Caribbean and South America which has been recorded as travelling a distance of 4,500 km.
3678First "Ferris" wheelGeorge W. FerrisUnited States, Midway, Chicago,,01 January 1893The original "Ferris" wheel was designed by George Washington Gale Ferris Jr (1859-96), an American bridge and tunnel engineer, and was erected for the World's Columbian Exposition of 1893 in Chicago, Illinois, USA at a cost of $385,000. The "Ferris" wheel as it became known reached a maximum height of 80 m (264 ft) above the ground, with a diameter of 76 m (250 ft) and a circumference of 240 m (790 ft). Each of the 36 fully enclosed gondolas carried upto 40 passengers in revolving chairs and the wheel weighed around 1,300 tonnes (2.866 million lb) unladen.The admission price to the "Ferris" wheel was 50c, the same price as admission to the Exposition itself. Following the closure of the Expo, the "Ferris" wheel was dismantled and moved to North Clark Street, Chicago and eventually to St Louis Missouri in time for the 1904 Louisiana Purchase Exposition. On 11 May 1906 it was finally demolished using a 200 lb dynamite charge and sold for scrap.George Ferris died a poor man on 22 Nov 1896 at the age of 37. Financial problems and the reorganisation of the Ferris Wheel Company had continued to haunt him right up until his death from typhoid fever.

3680Largest human art figureUnknownAustralia, Finniss Springs,Marree01 July 1998A giant outline of a naked Aborigine man, measuring 4.2 km (2.6 miles) in length and so vast that it can only be seen from the air, appeared at Finniss Springs, near Marree, South Australia in July 1998 to become the largest ever representation of the human form. The 'lines' of the figure are 35 m (115 ft) wide and measure 28 km (17 miles) around. No-one has yet owned up to the 'Marree Man' and theories about its creation still abound, with many believing that the only people with the technology to create a drawing of this scale with such accuracy are personnel at a nearby US base.The figure, carrying a spear, is thought to have been etched by a plough, possibly drawn by a tractor, although no tractor marks were found nearby. (All police had to go on was a small American flag and a brief note, thought to refer to the Branch Dravidian cult in the USA, found at the centre of the drawing.) The outline was found by a group from Marree who flew over a plateau north of the town after being given directions in anonymous faxes, which claimed it was the largest portrayal of the human form in the world. Subsequent reports suggest the figure has largely faded away due to wind erosion. Academics have sought to search the artistic source for the figure from records.

3685Largest bird's nestHaliaeetus leucocephalusUnited States, St Petersburg,Florida01 January 1963The largest bird's nest was built by a pair of bald eagles (Haliaeetus leucocephalus), and possibly their successors, near St Petersburg, Florida, USA and measured 2.9 m (9 ft 6 in) wide and 6 m (20 ft) deep. It was examined in 1963 and was estimated to weigh more than two tonnes (4,409 lb). The incubation mounds built by the mallee fowl (Leipoa ocellata) of Australia measure up to 4.57 m (15 ft) in height and 10.6 m (35 ft) across, and it has been calculated that a nest site may involve the mounding of 249 m³ (8,793 ft³) of material weighing 300 tonnes (661,386 lb). The golden eagle (Aquila chrysaetos) also constructs huge nests, and one 4.57 m (15 ft) deep was reported from Scotland in 1954.
