This Boxer’s parents were delighted by her reaction to their newborn baby. “When we brought our first daughter home from the hospital we weren’t sure how the dog would react. Would she be jealous? Protective? We knew she would be a great family dog but we didn’t expect this!”
The energetic bird was spotted travelling southbound on the M1 near Coomera, reaching speeds of about 90km/h. The plucky little bird appears aware of the road rules, switching from the middle lane to the left-hand lane to allow faster-moving cars to pass. After keeping up the grueling pace for at least 40 seconds, the feathered road warrior appeared to have had enough, veering off the highway to take the Ormeau exit like a boss.
A Romanian man who happened to be in the right place at the right time has rescued a puppy that became stuck in a dam in the Somes Mic river. Footage of the rescue shows the dog desperately trying to claw its way up the concrete walls but it’s simply too high. No doubt hearing the dog’s cries for help, a fisherman braves the icy-cold water and coaxes the dog to an outstretched concrete platform and carries him to safety.
Marine animals show their secret life under high magnification. Corals and sponges are very mobile creatures, but their motion is only detectable at different time scales compared to ours and requires time lapses to be seen. These animals build coral reefs and play crucial roles in the biosphere, yet we know almost nothing about their daily lives.

A Florida man hoping for a leisurely day of fishing in his kayak got the ride of his life when he accidentally hooked an eleven-foot hammerhead shark. The shark ended up towing the man for two hours, eventually ditching him miles down the shore, two cities away from where he launched. “Shark turned out to be about 11 feet,” the man wrote. “I was also a bit wary of filming while it charged, as I was all alone with no one to help if anything went wrong… Looking back, it was a bit nerve-wracking.”
In this footage a 14ft 700lb hammerhead is fought, caught and released from the beach. It was caught on a 14/0 penn senator reel, custom rod and with circle hooks to ensure maximum health of the fish. It’s a good job I saw the ‘Do not try this at home’ warning, I was just about to import a 14ft Hammerhead and was in the process of ordering 400 tons of sand. I was thinking of ways to flood my living room with sea water and how I could wire up a wave machine. Those boys saved me a lot of hassle.
The Mahi-Mahi or common Dolphinfish is a surface-dwelling ray-finned fish found in off-shore temperate, tropical and subtropical waters worldwide. Healthy Mahi-Mahi are apparently never seen in waters that shallow. While it would be tempting, I would be hesitant to catch it and eat it because it’s probably sick.
Somewhere in rural Canada, a baby moose tried to maneuver its way over a wooden fence, but in the process got stuck when its hooves slid down between the slats, preventing it from pulling them back out. Several men freed him simply enough by breaking the fence, but then the little guy didn’t know what to do…so he did absolutely nothing.
