This week, the very cute and cuddly lion cubs who live at the Oregon Zoo — named Kamali, Zalika and Angalia — had their first hangout with their dad, Zawadi Mungu. He isn’t all that receptive to their desire to play with him, but he’s probably just stressed out because fatherhood is so daunting.
Big game fishing is all about the thrill and adrenaline rush of fishing from boats to catch large open-water species known for their sporting qualities, such as tuna and marlin. Join Sub Aquatic as they boil down their countless hours spent fishing and over half a terabyte of GoPro footage into a 5 minute clip. Shout out to Josh Smith for the submission.

A journalist sent to a wildlife park to “play” with a one-year-old lion bit off more than he could chew – which is almost what the animal did with him. British reporter Charles Smith was allowed into the cage of one-year-old lion Mapimpan, whose name means “little baby”, and was subsequently mauled by the animal while its trainer tried to calm it down.

Australian divers got up close and personal with a grey nurse shark that was in desperate need of saving last week in a “first-of-its-kind” rescue caught on tape. Somehow the young female shark—spotted breathing heavily in a shark habitat off Sydney—had managed to get an elastic band wrapped around her body. The band acted like a noose, slowly killing the shark as it pressed in on her gills. That’s when a vet team swam into action, wrestling the shark into a clear plastic “sock” that could bring her to the surface—”the first time that we’ve run this kind of operation in the wild,” a SeaLife sanctuary worker said.
JigheadsTV angler Jason Greatsinger caught the monster lake trout, while his partner in crime and co-host Jeremy Rydberg filmed the catch. Both were giddy as could be from the moment they got a good view of the monster lake trout through the ice. Of course, they were even happier when they managed to pull the beast out of the ice hole.
This amazing footage shows a shark attacking a seal decoy. Great Whites hunt seals by coming from the deep at high speed and hitting the seal out of the water. The sharks speed is enough to lift the seal and itself often weighing over 1000 kg straight out of the water. This video captures this action clearly in Table Bay, the biggest breeding ground of Great White sharks in the world.
