Yikes, these animal hybrids are so hilariously terrifying

Don't be surprised if in the future crazy scientists will have tampered with genetics so much that they'll create insane animal hybrid mashups. And not just designer dogs but psycho frigs, horsquirrels, eagluanas and chinchillapotamuses. They'll probably look a lot like these excellent photoshopped animals. » 7/17/14 9:27pm 7/17/14 9:27pm

Airplane drops fish bombs to repopulate lake

If you think you're looking at an engine blowing out in the plane above, you wouldn't exactly be right. The plane is actually stocking a remote lake with fish by dropping them into the water from the air like it would a bomb. It's a method that's used all around the country but looks completely nutty when you see it… » 7/09/14 9:28pm 7/09/14 9:28pm

World's largest flying bird was as big as some aircraft

Wow. A newly discovered flying bird species had a wingspan that stretched 24 feet long—as big as some aircraft. That's pretty much a flying giant in the sky that's twice as big as anything that can fly today. In fact, the bird, Pelagornis sandersi, is so ginormous that it exceeds our estimates "for the limits of… » 7/07/14 8:36pm 7/07/14 8:36pm

This video explainer makes a very convincing argument to eat bugs

Before I watched this video by the whip smart guys at AsapScience, I never considered eating bugs in my entire life. Now? Well. Damn. It actually makes a lot of sense. Raising bugs doesn't take nearly as much space as raising animals and it doesn't require the same amount of resources either. Heck, bugs may even be… » 6/24/14 11:12pm 6/24/14 11:12pm

Watching the world's last ocean swimming elephant is a real delight

This video features the remarkable 65-year old Rajan, the world's last ocean swimming elephant who lives on a beautiful archipelago in the Bay of Bengal.

Watch all these dogs run on their dog treadmills in their dog gym

Sometimes when you have a lot of dogs, they don't all get the exercise they need. Not these dogs though, they get to use these sweet dog treadmills at their outdoor dog gym. So even though there's a lot of dogs, they all get to be active. Well, most of them. The dog on the left is just out for a relaxing stroll. » 5/23/14 12:04am 5/23/14 12:04am

Oh my, motorcyclist just misses crashing into a horse on the road

Damn. This girl on the motorcycle just avoided one of the most ridiculously dangerous accidents you could ever imagine: hitting a horse on the road. Seriously, she's zooming down the road when a horse starts acting up and jumps over to her lane. She quickly maneuvers around it—thankfully, for her and the horse's… » 5/13/14 11:37pm 5/13/14 11:37pm

The power and perfection of a crocodile in one slow-motion jump

It's hard to believe how effortlessly and elegantly this crocodile goes out of the water. It looks like he's actually swimming vertically into the air, as if he weren't aware of the laws of physics and the differences of density between liquid and gas. Impressive animal (that freaks the hell out of me.) » 5/10/14 4:06am 5/10/14 4:06am
