A biologist caught a huge 70-year-old lobster that could be one of the biggest catches of the year. Forrest Galante was free-diving when he found the huge crustacean that weighed close to 12 pounds. Due to over fishing and general ocean conditions, the Pacific Spiny lobster rarely exceeds three pounds in weight. After debating whether to toss him back or eat him Forrest decided he had to take the lobster back to his home in Santa Barbara to show his family. The family quickly decided there was no way they could eat the lobster so took it to a marine reserve off the coast of California where it was released.

We’ve all been there. Your eyes are bigger than your belly. You spot a huge tasty snack and you’re halfway through when that full feeling hits like an uppercut to the chin. And – as this bright blue indigo snake demonstrates with a poisonous diamondback rattlesnake in its jaws – it’s not just humans who overestimate their appetite.
A horse racing fan who was so excited at seeing his horse heading to victory that he ran out after it to cheer it on was run over and killed by the horse travelling behind. Malte ‘The Twin’ Velasquez, 49, vanished almost instantly as he was hit at high speed by the horse and rider. Eyewitness Davor Avalos, 38, said: ‘I couldn’t believe it, one minute he was standing there and the next second he was gone. It was like he was hit by a juggernaut, it was clear he didn’t have a chance.’

Deep-sea anglerfish are strange and elusive creatures that are very rarely observed in their natural habitat. Fewer than half a dozen have ever been captured on film or video by deep diving research vehicles. This little angler, about 9 cm long, is named Melanocetus. It is also known as the Black Seadevil and it lives in the deep dark waters of the Monterey Canyon. This is the first video footage ever captured of this species alive and at depth.
When you see the surveillance footage of this would-be burglar running in fear for his life, you’ll think the animal chasing after him would be a vicious beast. The man can be seen walking around in the backyard of someone’s home. He goes out of the frame briefly, as he is apparently snooping around and figuring out how to break into the house. Once you see the man again, he is running full-speed. According to reports, the man has since been arrested. Police claim that the man suffers from what is known as cynophobia, which is an abnormal fear of dogs.
The fearless Thai man plucked the highly venomous snake from the floor using only his mouth. With his lips perched millimetres from the snakes sharp and lethal fangs, the man slowly lowers in and grabs the banded krait between his teeth. But the snake quickly wraps itself around his head in a show of defence – forcing the snake charmer to unravel it. The Thai man – performing in a show at Schlangenfarm and Snake Show in Pattaya, Thailand – even finds time to take a quick bow to the crowd.
Footage illustrates the importance and value of a police dog to an officer. Cops and their K9 units are obviously trained to be prepared for the worst case scenario. The pair in this video proves to be an effective team, after seeing events unfold in this clip. The K9 is an ‘Iron Dog K9′ trained Malinois named Blu with 4 Titanium fangs. Epic stuff!
Jenya has spent seven years transforming himself into the Human Platypus, stretching his lip so it resembles a duck bill. Jenya said: “Externally, I am now a platypus. Inside though, I am more like a bird. They’re my spirit animal and they come to me in my dreams. I can eat, talk and speak on the phone like everyone else. Nothing has changed at all. I do attract a lot of negative attention when I walk down the street and sometimes people make mean comments. I’m used to it now though and I just try to ignore them.”
