Move over Irwin family, there’s a new wildlife warrior in town. Teenager Oli Wardrope has, in quintessential Queensland style, shirtlessly wrangled a snake from under a ute, with barely a flicker of fear. All before heading off for school. I love this dude.
The great white shark follows the bodyboarder riding a wave and then spots the surfer sitting on his board waiting for another wave. He doesn’t appear to know the shark is approaching. When the surfer starts kicking his right foot in preparation to catch the wave, the sudden movement scares off the great white shark. It isn’t clear how the warning system works once a shark is spotted by a drone, or whether those riding waves in this video were made aware of the shark’s presence. But hopefully the system works.
A French waitress has shown Australian diners how it’s done, saving the day by dragging a giant goanna out of the restaurant she was working in. No questions asked. The goanna strolled into Mimosa Wines’ restaurant on the New South Wales’ South Coast on the weekend. At first glance waitress Samia Lila thought it was a dog. The goanna went under a table causing frightened diners to start screaming. Lila then decided to grab it and drag it out.
A bull escaped from a Queens slaughterhouse and was free on the streets for two hours, but died after being captured, the police said. The police officers shot the bull with several tranquilliser darts, but it kept moving. Video from a news helicopter showed the animal trotting down streets and onto lawns, with a police car in slow pursuit. Check it out!
Sebastian Castella, who just weeks ago angered campaigners against the sport when he said animals “do not have rights”, was performing at the Bullring of La Santamaria in Bogota. The bull took out his legs with a swooping horn, then turned around and attacked him, tossing him up into the air like a ragdoll.
“Having found an awesome new rope swing to hang out at on those hot Aussie days, I found out that I’m not the only one swimming in those waters… I then hunt down the infamous bull shark that’s know to survive and thrive in both fresh and salt waters with a hand reel, and cook it up right at the rope swing for lunch the next morning.”
While some people online are convinced the animal in the video is a juvenile great white, others believe it is a bull shark. ‘That’s a juvenile great white! And as scary as that is it’s amazing. I’m a little confused as to how a GW is able to swim that far up stream,’ one wrote. Another said: ‘My brain tells me it should be a bull shark in that part of Sydney, but looking at the footage all I see is a baby great white.’ What do you guys think?
Two young men have been charged after video footage emerged of a quokka being kicked on Rottnest Island. The video, obtained by WAtoday, shows a man in a grey t-shirt and black jeans chasing the quokka around a tree and kicking it at least twice. The man can be heard saying ‘come here you little c*nt’ before kicking it a second time. The kick sends the small animal into a wall. It tries to run away from the man before the video ends after nine seconds.
Snowboarders have been getting harassed on ski mountains across the world since the very first day snowboarding came into being. Skiers have long hated snowboarders for crowding up the mountains and trashing the fresh powder. But this is the first instance we’ve seen of the wildlife rebelling against the sport of snowboarding.
In her latest daring adventure, Alison Teal, went free diving with the giant creatures off the coast of Hawaii, USA. Using only hand held dive lights, Alison dived 50 feet being careful not to touch the mantas as they fed off the plankton in the light streams. The awesome moment was captured by photographer Mark Tipple.
