Beautiful video of beautiful birds flying in slow motion

Birds being able to fly is Mother Nature’s ploy to make us all jealous. There are few cooler abilities in the real world. What else even comes close? Being able to hold your breath really long? Change colors? Grow back a chopped claw? Flying tops them all. Here’s a collection of birds flying in slow motion just to… » 7/29/15 2:35pm Wednesday 2:35pm

A beached great white shark is still scary as hell

Even when we have home field advantage, a beached shark is still not something you want to see on a relaxing trip to the playa. Because for one, the shark baring its teeth and whipping its tail is still scary as hell even though it shouldn’t be able to reach you. But more importantly, because we’re humans with hearts… » 7/15/15 3:20pm 7/15/15 3:20pm

Seeing a giant stingray eat a crab is like seeing a UFO abduct a person

And here I thought stingrays were jolly surfers of the ocean. Not to crabs! Watch as this giant stingray catch a spider crab and vacuum suck the poor crab right into the stingray’s mouth. It’s like one minute the crab is there, the next he’s been vaporized. Poor crab was too busy molting to realize the UFO of the sea… » 7/15/15 9:16am 7/15/15 9:16am

See the Great Barrier Reef from the perspective of a swimming turtle

I’m not saying I’d trade places with this turtle but imagine how wonderful a life this little guy has. He enjoys things slowly, his body is protected by his home which is always attached to his body and he can just dip into the Great Barrier Reef and swim in the ocean whenever he wants to. That sounds like a life… » 7/06/15 6:14pm 7/06/15 6:14pm

Terrifying great white shark attacking a cage is like real life Jaws

Oh. My. Holy. Bananas. This shark attack video from Hillary Rae shows an 11 and a half foot shark biting and gnawing and trying to rip open an underwater cage with such fury and abandon and ferocity that it looks like the killer beast might actually break through. You get an up close view of the razor sharp teeth and… » 7/02/15 10:28am 7/02/15 10:28am

The world's tallest cow is so comically ginormous that it's hilarious

When you first see Blosom, a cow that measures in at 6 feet 2 inches from the hoof to the withers and is the Guinness World Record’s tallest cow ever, you can’t help but laugh. You don’t scream fake (that’s the second thing you do) or analyze the photo’s misleading angles meant to exaggerate the cow’s size (that’s the… » 6/26/15 4:35pm 6/26/15 4:35pm

Silly video imagines if crocodiles could shoot lasers at other animals

The original footage of this battle between bats and crocodiles is already insane, as the crocs lurk in the water and chomp at the flying bats. But adding lasers to the crocs and fire bombs to the bats makes it even crazier. The warfare is like imagining a future where animals could use weapons. » 6/25/15 11:03am 6/25/15 11:03am

Watch a woodpecker bang its beak and head against a tree in slow motion

Man, that’s got to flatten out some brain cells. Slow motion footage from a Turkish TV program The Glory of Nature found on Reddit shows a woodpecker repeatedly drilling its beak into a tree. You can see the head of the bird jiggle and the shock of the hit reverberate throughout its entire body. But it just keeps… » 6/18/15 11:40am 6/18/15 11:40am

Look how amazingly still a hummingbird's body is when it flies

Here’s a video of hummingbirds flying in slow motion. It’s really cool to see how different the speed of its wings move versus the stillness of its body. It’s like the video is in fast forward when you’re staring at the wings but completely stopped when you just see the body. I’ll never not be impressed by… » 6/17/15 3:32pm 6/17/15 3:32pm

How ducks are force fed to make foie gras

Here’s a revealing documentary about what is perhaps America’s most controversial food: foie gras. Made by Zagat, it tries to examine all sides of the story. From the farm that supplies the fattened duck liver to the chefs who cook the buttery meat goodness to the organizations that oppose the concept of force feeding… » 6/15/15 10:39am 6/15/15 10:39am

Watch frog eggs turn into tadpoles in this beautiful time lapse

This amazing time lapse shows frog eggs transforming into tadpoles in a mere 30 seconds. The spawn of frogs is so impressive and so sudden and so perfect that it’s easy to forget how complicated it is for Mother Nature to do that beautiful thing where she gives birth to life. Watch it all in the video below by Nipam… » 6/09/15 10:32am 6/09/15 10:32am

Watch a rabbit artfully hop and jump around inside an avalanche

I don’t know what compelled this white rabbit to pop out of nowhere and run straight into the avalanche and start hopping away but I can use my human brain to come up with rabbit reasons. I only see three options: it sees the collapsing snow as a giant mate orgy. It thinks jumping around inside an avalanche is fun… » 6/08/15 8:06pm 6/08/15 8:06pm

Watermelon-Eating Techniques Of Large Animals, Ranked

Feeding whole watermelons to large animals and uploading the resulting videos to YouTube is a thing that people do, and it is one of the best uses of the internet. It’s pretty exciting to watch these beasts lay waste to a 10-pound piece of fruit like it’s a grape or something. So here are some videos of large animals… » 4/30/15 5:48pm 4/30/15 5:48pm

Moving a two-ton elephant looks absolutely crazy

A small group of elephants who had been displaced have been butting heads with local villagers in a village in Daloa in the Ivorty Coast. The elephants have damaged crops, ruined homes, injured people and so forth. The villagers wanted to kill the elephants. Luckily for everyone though, the International Fund for… » 4/27/15 9:21am 4/27/15 9:21am

Watching realistic CGI giraffes dive into a pool is pure ridiculous fun

This is completely absurd but Nicolas Deveaux’s 5 Mètres 80 is so fun that it doesn’t really matter. A group of giraffes raid a pool and start jumping off the high dive while doing tricks. It’s all CGI but the giraffes look so realistic that I can’t help but imagine the alternate reality that this is happening… » 4/23/15 6:14pm 4/23/15 6:14pm
