Due to a massive drought and over-fishing in Zimbabwe, crocs like this one are venturing away from the rivers in search of food. That could be to blame in this case, as you can see a croc attack a woman in a pool. The woman managed to clamber out and gets to her feet despite having suffered several bites.
An animal trainer in Florida was hospitalised after being attacked by a tiger while performing for a school field trip at a fair, officials said. A video of the incident allegedly taken by a student on a field trip to the Pensacola Interstate Fair has surfaced on social media. The dramatic footage shows a female trainer with a tiger in an enclosed area, while children and adults a few feet away watch behind a fence. The woman is seen repeatedly hitting the tiger with a rod as the animal grabs her leg and drags her across the ground.
A tiger shark was filmed eating a cow in the middle of the Indian Ocean in this underwater footage. The predator was captured taking lumps out of the dead animal off the coast of the French island of Mayotte. The men filmed the bizarre scenario from on top of a boat and kept their distance until the shark swam away. It is not clear how the horned zebu cow came to being in the water but it’s thought it was on a makeshift vessel 500 metres from shore when it fell off.
A man in China took footage of this giant mysterious flying creature that was spotted near the border of Laos. Many theories have emerged with some claiming the creature is a real dragon that was caught on tape and others saying it provides evidence that pterodactyls still exist. First up. Stop f**ken calling it a ‘Dre-Gun’. And secondly, this is a real dragon. No need to look into it any further. Case closed.
Meet Dan Hoey, the owner and operator of Salty Dog Charters in Port Fairy, Victoria. On one of his charters, Hoey realised that an extremely large shark had started to circle the boat. It was even trying to take some chomps into the boat, he said: “This big beast turned up and wouldn’t leave us alone. It nearly took a chunk out of my Yamaha motors, leaving a few small dents and scratches.” So, he did what any absolute maniac would do – he shoved it away with a garden broom.
A decade ago, the landmark television series Planet Earth redefined natural history filmmaking, giving us the ultimate portrait of life on Earth. Planet Earth II, narrated by Sir David Attenborough, will reveal our planet from a completely new perspective, using significant advances in both filming technology and our understanding of the natural world. And if you are not excited enough already it features an original score by legendary composer Hans Zimmer.
This is the terrifying moment a diver found himself trapped inside a tiny cage with a ferocious great white shark – and somehow emerged unscathed. The unbelievable footage, believed to have been filmed somewhere off the coast of Mexico, captures the moment a shark-watching expedition went horribly wrong and almost ended with a diver being torn to shreds!
Footage captured by a snorkeler off the coast of Tonga shows just what it’s like to be swimming among the ocean’s biggest creatures.

If I didn’t know any better, I’d swear they were doing it on purpose. Those are some very stupid birds. Those pigeons are in pigeon heaven now with all the grain they could eat for a lifetime. You know how some people go vegetarians after seeing tortured farm animals? This footage makes me want to go gluten-free.
Not all documentaries are engaging enough to make learning fun, but BBC’s Planet Earth saga were so gorgeous that learning about the different environments and animals of the world was breathtaking. Sadly, the episodes were so time-consuming and complicated to produce that the BBC never made it past eleven. Now, there’s some very good news on the Planet Earth front: a follow-up series called Planet Earth II is here.
