Bear are mostly scavengers. It is not often a bear is able to get close enough to a healthy deer to actually bring it down. Very likely the deer grew too tame around housing and that lack of caution cost it dearly. So to speak. Bears typically don’t eat deer and if they do, it is usually a baby deer. Makes me wonder what is happening to the bear’s natural food source.
Your eyes are not fooling you, or should I say, her eyes are not fooling you. Matilda‘s eyes are real (not photoshopped). They’ve nicknamed her Matilda the Alien Cat. Matilda is gaining popularity and is becoming an Instagram star. The two-year-old cat suffers from an mysterious unknown condition, causing that alien-looking, “otherworldy” look. Freaky!
All seems calm at the river in South Luangwa National Park, Zambia, as the croc lies in wait, stealthily stalking his pray from afar. His first target is a warthog, stopping by the river for a quick drink to cool down – but Pumbaa proved too quick for the croc and he darts away as the croc tries to snap him up, missing him by inches. Undeterred, the croc slinks back into the murky water to wait for his next victim.
American Pharoah sat back in the starting gate and when the doors opened he was late. For a moment, for one second out of 146, it didn’t look good for the horse who was chasing history. But the 3-year-old bay colt, bidding to become the 12th horse to win the Triple Crown, burst to the front and took control of the small, eight-horse field and his destiny. It is the first time a horse has won the triple crown, which is winning the Kentucky Derby, Preakness Stakes, and Belmont Stakes consecutively, in 37 years. So it’s sort of a big deal.
Videos like the one below can be a tad thought-provoking. On the one hand, most people enjoy going to zoos. It’s chance to take your kids to see and learn about a variety of animals. Plus, zoos generally treat animals very well, offering first-class medical care and taking care of the animals’ nutritional needs. On the other hand, zoos have been criticised for doing the one thing almost everyone doesn’t like: being held against one’s own will. Either way, it’s a well-made clip that gets us to look at things a little more from the animals’ perspectives.
There can be no better or worse sight than your own reflection, but these vain animals seemed very keen to admire themselves. Innovative French photographer Xavier Hubert Brierre travelled to Gabon with his wife and set up a mirror in several locations in order to capture animals walking by. The results are stunning.
When Bruce Brandit was left with an ear ache after swimming in a lake – he decided to do a little self examination. He had been swimming in a lake in northern Missouri and his ear had felt blocked after leaving the water. When this happens don’t panic, tilt your head so that your ear is facing up, then get a friend to slowly drip water into your ear, preferably using an eye drop like container. This will flood your ear canal so that whatever is in there gets forced out, while making sure whatever is in there does not borrow deeper.
Jon Black landed what is likely the biggest goliath grouper ever caught from a kayak—an estimated 552 pounds — so it was certainly cause for celebration. But Black’s reaction when he sees the humungous fish for the first time is priceless, as is his reaction when the fish breaks his fishing rod in half. What a catch!
