Fenton the dog is really into chasing red deer in Richmond park, London. His owner however, is not too happy about it…
I think I’ll take today to be thankful that I am not a toad with a parasitic worm in its eye!
That said, he seems to be pretty chilled out with it. How long can you watch it before you start feeling phantom worms wigglin’ and squigglin’ all up in your own eye ball?
Congratulations, you’ve just seen one of the worst things on the internet this week. Enjoy the rest of your week…
Three lionesses pounced on a crocodile after the reptile tried to attack a cub – and a tourist caught it all on camera.
The protective females instinctively leaped into action to fend off the aggressive crocodile after it had attempted to pick off the youngster.
During the violent encounter the crocodile managed to bite one of the big cats on the face, but was soon killed by the pride.
Move over skateboarding/surfing dogs, there is a new talent on the internet who’s enthusiasm makes all other action sports dogs look like mutts and strays.

Chameleons are a distinctive and highly specialized clade of lizards. They are distinguished by their parrot-like feet, their separately mobile and stereoscopic eyes, their very long, highly modified, and rapidly extrudable tongues and of course, the ability of some to change color.
Igor Siwanowicz is an exceptional photographer who captures beautiful photos of reptiles and amphibians. Unlike any other insect photographer, Igor manages to capture human like qualities in the smallest creatures.

I hope reincarnation is real, because I’ve decided what I want to be in my next life. We all know the internet loves cat videos, but things just got super-sized with this huge black panther throwing down some of the biggest jumps you will ever seen.
The cat leaps up his enclosure fence chasing his toy only to end up a full human’s height above his trainer.

A man jumped into a spider monkey enclosure at a Brazilian zoo in an attempt to befriend them. He said he wanted to play with the primates at the Sorocaba Zoo near Sao Paulo on Sunday.
The monkeys understandably didn’t want him to be there and attacked him, leaving him bleeding. He admitted to being drunk when he jumped into the water.
He was later treated for bites to his hand and arms. Warning: This video does contain some blood.

Only the best for these rad little creatures. The question is…did they ingest THC and get high, or did their rapid metabolism prevent them from feeling any affects?

A woman floating on a surfboard near Santa Cruz, California almost ended up on the lunch menu for a humpback whale over the weekend. Luckily, Barb Roettger had her camera rolling as two whales burst from the water meters from a surfer and a pair of kayakers.
The whales have been hanging around Santa Cruz, feeding on schools of anchovies, and there has been there reports of close encounters with the whales in the last few months.

Pollination: it’s vital to life on Earth, but largely unseen by the human eye.
Filmmaker Louie Schwartzberg shows us the intricate world of pollen and pollinators with gorgeous high-speed images from his film “Wings of Life,” inspired by the vanishing of one of nature’s primary pollinators, the honeybee.

Animal photography is probably the hardest, and sometimes the most dangerous type of photography you can get.
The outcome totally depends on the skills of photographer and the time when the shot is taken.
A photographer who uses good exposure, color and blur settings along with appropriate shutter speed and focusing techniques can produce stunning photographs.
Animal photographers have to be prepared and be ready for the unknown. They need to study action and language of animals to know every move.
Many animal photographers use camouflage in order to hide themselves so the animals act naturally in their habitat.
When shooting in wildness, photographers usually shoot with long telephoto lenses from a distance.
After the jump you will find a massive gallery of beautiful examples of animal photography, photos of wild, tamed and other weird and wonderful creatures…
A 16-foot-long Burmese python was found to have a whole adult deer in its stomach after it was captured and killed in a U.S. national park. The reptile – one of the biggest ever found in South Florida – had recently swallowed a doe the size of a human.
Skip Snow, a python specialist who conducted the autopsy at Everglades National Park, said the animal had a girth of 44ins with the deer inside its stomach. ‘This is clearly an extreme event,’ he told the South Florida Sun-Sentinel. ‘It shows you they can eat huge things.’
