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 Thursday 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

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

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 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

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

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

Spectacular video shows birds suddenly flying away from a power line

What a fascinating view. I don't pretend to know what triggers a bird's decision to take flight or what makes an entire flock want to take off all at once but man, is it cool to see. This video shows three recordings of starlings taking off from a power line: in real time, at half speed and at 300 frames per second. » 4/02/15 11:15am 4/02/15 11:15am

Slow motion video shows a chameleon shoot out its tongue superpower

A chameleon's tongue is nearly two times the length of its body and it can shoot out that slimy sticky thing at 41 g, roughly four times the maximum acceleration of a fighter jet, with deadly quick accuracy: its tongue can reach its prey in 0.07 seconds. Basically, it's an insane, superpower-like weapon to have. » 3/26/15 8:53am 3/26/15 8:53am
