Residents of a Brisbane neighbourhood are being stalked by a giant kangaroo, taking locals by surprise as it wanders fearlessly around the streets.

“An edit showcasing spearfishing from both the North and South Islands, venturing from Nelson all the way up to Great Barrier. New Zealand is home to some of the best spearfishing in the world, we hope that this video helps show some of the different country we ge to hunt, and the different species we get to bring to the table” – WildFox Productions.
When Dave Meinert got his rescue dog Pegasus, he was told that she might not live long because of complications from the reckless breeding that sired her. So Dave decided to film her every day. This is what he’s recorded so far.
“My friend tossed me the GoPro and as I proceed to make my way back to the jug on the surface the shark makes a surprise appearance behind me. I would have never seen the shark behind if it wasn’t for my friends yelling at me to turn around! The water was crystal clear for here so its amazing to me how incredible these large creatures are at staying in your blind spot. Sorry for the video quality, was holding onto a gun, pole spear, and bag with lion fish fins poking through and trying not to drop anything!” – Randy Hunt.
This is the remarkable moment a fisherman jumped into the water and rode a huge five-metre whale shark in the middle of the night. The inquisitive shark put on a rare show spending nearly five hours loitering around the fisherman’s boat, which was anchored off the Northern Territory coast. Fishing guide Benny Sambrooks, who was out with a group of fisherman when the massive shark calmly approached their boat, said he had never seen anything like it.
A film crew trolling the waters of the South Australian coast got closer than most people would ever want to be with a great white shark. And they’ve got the photo to prove it. Filmmaker Dave Riggs was in a boat off the Neptune Islands, about 70 kilometres south of Australia last week when the shark breached the water, coming less than a metre from where his hands were busy filming the encounter. Luke Thom, a deckhand with Naturalist Charters, the company which owned the boat, snapped the photo which has since gone viral.
