A dad has left medics baffled after waking from a coma with extraordinary artistic talents he never had before - and he's now a professional carpenter and model maker. Moe Hunter, 38, spent more than a month in a coma where his heart even stopped after being diagnosed with a rare form of bacterial meningitis and tuberculosis in his brain. He awoke from brain surgery with no memory but soon left his friends and family gobsmacked when he started to display a special gift he didn't possess before. Moe suddenly discovered he had a newfound creative flair and an inexplicable talent for drawing, painting and model building - despite being 'rubbish' at art at school. He used his new skills to embark on a career as a self-employed carpenter and began building intricate life-size model replicas from the world of TV and film. Married dad-of-one Moe has since sold pieces of his artwork and has displayed his amazing creations at Comic-Con events across the country. He has also appeared on Keith Lemon's 'Fantastical Factory of Curious Crafts' after producers were also blown away by his story. Moe revealed people used to laugh at his artwork when he was younger before his unbelievable transformation into a talented artist. He says medical professionals were left flabbergasted by the freak phenomenon before his neurologist told him: "Just enjoy it." His home in Hereford is now adorned with amazing paintings, illustrations and models - from a life-size R2-D2, Chappie and an AT-ST from Star Wars. Moe said: "I really wasn't creative before in the slightest, in fact people used to laugh at my drawings. I was more interested in going out, football and computer games. “Even to this day some of my family can’t believe it, they’re still completely shocked. "It's insane but when I spoke to the neurologist he just said 'enjoy it' and said there's so much about the brain they still can't decipher and this is just a phenomenon. “I look at all of my stuff now and I'm like 'never in a trillion years could I do this stuff'. I have no idea how it happened. “My doctor said that I was a walking miracle to be able to recover as quickly as I did - but when I started displaying these new artistic talents they were just stumped. "Nobody has really given a medical explanation for it. I just know comas can do crazy things to a human brain. "They just kind of said there's many stories and theories over the years and people have woken from comas with skills and even speaking other languages. "I …
Residents in Pembrokeshire were baffled after waking up to find giant dinosaur footprints dotted along their local beach
Residents in Pembrokeshire were baffled after waking up to find giant dinosaur footprints dotted along their local beach. A trail made up of 64 T. rex footprints, each a metre long, appeared along the golden sands of Traeth Llyfn. A team of 10 sand artists worked with palaeontologists to design the prints and spent more than four hours creating the 50-metre-long prehistoric trail. The installation was created to mark the launch of the Apple TV+ series Prehistoric Planet today (May 23rd), which is narrated by Sir David Attenborough, and features music composed by Hans Zimmer. Local passer-by Anna Hatton, aged 72, said: “I saw these giant footprints from up on the cliff path and came down to take look. "It’s amazing how big they are up close.” Sir David Attenborough said: “It’s an opportunity to see the world’s most famous dinosaurs like T. rex and Triceratops come to life but also to really enter into their world and see the incredible diversity of life which existed at that time.” Executive Producer, Mike Gunton, said: “We wanted to find a showstopping way to get people talking about the release of Prehistoric Planet, and what better way than bringing dinosaurs back to the present day.” ABOUT THE T REX: · Epic proportions – T. rex could reach 13 metres long and tip the scales at around 10 tonnes. · Making a splash – they were competent swimmers. Strong hind legs would likely have propelled them through the water effectively and fossil evidence backs this up. Using a CT scanner, scientists have found that many theropod bones had a hollow structure which would have helped their massive bodies to float. · Sensitive faces - in the new series it’s revealed that T. rex had many nerve endings on its face, which would have played a significant role not only in communication, but also courtship. · They had feathers when they were young - palaeontologists believe T. rex youngsters probably had a thin coat of downy feathers – likely to have first evolved to keep them warm. An adult T. rex, however, would not have needed them. · T. rex, the family man – It’s possible that T. rex fathers would have taken the leading care -giving role in raising their young, including safeguarding nests of eggs.
