13653Greatest ecological devastation by apex predatorBrown tree snake (Boiga irregularis)Guam01 January 1945Since its accidental transportation shortly after World War II to the island of Guam, far from its normal South Pacific homelands, the brown tree snake (Boiga irregularis) has wreaked unprecedented devastation as an invasive apex predator. Following a population explosion caused by a lack of predators, not only has it wiped out most of Guam’s native vertebrate species (including birds), it has also caused thousands of residential, commercial, and military power breakdowns, it has preyed extensively upon pets and livestock, and has frequently invaded human habitation, resulting in widespread panic and endangering young children (it is a venomous, aggressive species).

13660First capture of living giant squidArchiefirstNew Zealand, 01 March 2002Famously elusive, the giant squid (Architeuthis dux) was finally captured alive for the first time when, in March 2002, an international scientific team led by marine biologist Dr Steve O’Shea announced that they had captured seven juvenile specimens off the coast of New Zealand. Measuring 9-13 mm (0.35-0.05 in), these tiny but highly significant individuals sadly did not survive long in captivity, but were briefly filmed there by the Discovery Channel while still alive. Although no adult specimen has survived capture, it is believed that Archie - the largest and most complete specimen ever found - was initially alive when trapped in deep sea trawling nets off the Falkland Islands in March 2004. Archie, who measures 8.5 m (28 ft) long, is currently on display in the Natural History Museum, London, UK.

13667Longest script for a graphic adventure gameLarry Fessenden, Graham Reznick, Until DawnUnited States26 August 2015For the PS4 survival horror adventure game Until Dawn (Sony/SuperMassive Games, 2015), screenwriters Graham Reznick and Larry Fessenden (both USA) claimed that they wrote 10,000 pages of dialogue – smashing the previous record of 40,000 words set by noir adventure Heavy Rain. Sony had claimed that the final used script totalled 1,000-pages long, a number that would still claim the record by considerable distance. Until Dawn featured eight playable protagonists, with branching storylines that theoretically led to hundreds of possible outcomes. However, Reznick and Fessenden said that the epic script was partly due to the game’s lengthy development period, with the game having originally been announced as an action game in 2012. Reznick and Fessenden had previously worked across a number of indie horror films in a variety of capacities, including actor, writer and composer, with film credits including V/H/S, The Innkeepers and Habit.
