Yet, in stark contrast to their reputation, some sharks are gentle giants that harmlessly filter vast quantities of plankton. Others have highly developed senses that allow them to detect prey from tiny signals sent from miles away. No matter what you think of them, they are one of the greatest and most stunning animals on planet earth.

This giraffe’s chances of just waltzing away from a brewing lion attack appear to be quite slim indeed. Then, much to the entire lion community’s collective humiliation, this giraffe went full Beast Mode before confidently strutting elsewhere.

Ever since Mick Fanning punched a shark, people are less scared of the watery beasts, and bringing the fight to them. This guy straight up tackles a shark for fun!

This poor little guy has clearly had a terrible life. So good to see such a dramatic transformation.

These guys have a special tactic to get crocodiles to their boat in Zambezi National Park, Zimbabwe. Nevermind the fish, they might hook something a lot bigger.

Anthony Bourdain shut down a protester accusing him of eating dog meat in the most Bourdain way possible. Anthony was in the middle of his live show, “The Hunger,” earlier this week in San Francisco when the woman charged the stage.

I like the subtle, “Jesus” from the father as he realises the sheer volume of liquid that came out of that baby. That’s exorcist level vomit right there. Kid must have puked when he saw Dad filming vertically. The wife’s face is just emotionless, she has accepted her fate.

Her fear becomes our entertainment. I think even the bravest person wouldn’t appreciate waking up with a snake spooning you.

This is the astonishing moment an enormous humpback whale nearly crashed straight into a diver. Patrick Dykstra, an American wildlife photographer currently based in Dubai, was filming his underwater excursion in the Norwegian ocean when he saw the 35,000lb beast swimming directly towards him. Letting out an audible gasp, he carried on filming as the whale swerved to avoid him just seconds before they would have collided.

This polar bear wasn’t patting that dog, he was tenderising the meat. Remember this heartwarming video from a few days ago showing a dog as it was being petted by a giant polar bear? In a twist that comes as a surprise to no one, a polar bear had to be immobilised last week after it killed and ate a dog from the same sled pack.

After Dave Chappelle drew a frog, David Blaine promptly picked up a champagne flute and spit a small frog into the glass. He then asked Curry to check to make sure his mouth was empty before spitting out yet another frog.

“Never thought I’d call a dog my best friend, but over the past 2 years, that’s what Bentley has become. My little 40lb adventure buddy. Checkout his big helicopter adventure in the mountains of Beautiful British Columbia, Canada. Bentley is a 4 year old, English Bulldog who loves beaches, car rides and flying in helicopters.” – @bradleyfriesen.

Mouse

Hopefully the Hawk just rescued the mouse because it saw that the mouse was being forcibly handled by an obnoxious drunk guy.

The crocodile had become stuck in a canal leading out of the Nilwala river, and was hoisted out and captured in Matura, Sri Lanka. Local media said the crocodile weighed about a tonne and had become stuck in the canal while searching for food when heavy rains caused the water to rise.

After a day out free diving, Max Mironov decided to do some exploring in his kayak. The only thing is, the sharks didn’t want to part ways. Here you can see Max dealing with his new friends as they become aggressive towards him, resulting in a few slaps from a paddle.

You might not think of a dental procedure as dangerous, but when the operation takes place on lions, leopards and hyenas, the stakes are raised. Watch as, over the course of a week, one of the most ambitious wild animal dental operations takes place on Kevin Richardson’s sanctuary in South Africa.

This poor hippopotamus turns to take its frustration out on a nearby vehicle as it can’t get away from attacking lions. The lions had a big meal that day.

Last night, the U.K. was gripped by the most intense face-off between a racer snake and a baby iguana the world has ever seen, thanks to Planet Earth II. A small, unassuming iguana – just recently hatched and new to the world, full of optimism and light and with a spring in its step – was set upon by dozens of racer snakes. It was like relentless, apocalyptic nightmare. What kind of a life is that? Is it fair that some baby iguanas are born into this world, just to suffer an unimaginable agony on its first day tiptoeing out into the open? Is it? IS IT?
