Video: 100 Sharks Having Lunch on the Beach

1 Comment

Does Sharknado need another sequel? Not when there is jaw-dropping, real-life footage like this (among other reasons).  A surfer captured this video of dozens of sharks feeding on a school of blue fish at Cape Lookout National Seashore off the coast of North Carolina. According to Brian Recker, who uploaded the viral clip on YouTube, the feeding frenzy lasted more than five minutes. Seagulls and pelicans joined the apex predators, and a group of people who were out to fish began gathering catch as well.

Very Smart Ape Demonstrates How to Roast Marshmallows

Leave a comment

For one very talented ape, having no trainer and no assistance is no problem when it comes to making a favorite fireside snack.  Kanzi the bonobo is not your average animal. The ape knows some American Sign Language, can create stone tools, and apparently cooks. That last trait is highlighted in a viral video from BBC One. The U.K. network’s show “Monkey Planet” explores “your animal family as you’ve never seen it before.” In the series, the characteristics that primates share with humans are explored. A shining example comes courtesy of Kanzi.  George McGavin, the host of the show, narrates the video. In the minute-long clip published to the BBC’s YouTube channel, Kanzi is shown building a fire. The bonobo breaks debris and wood before piling the pieces neatly. He then lights a match and uses a small branch to ignite the fire.

Video: Baby Animals Taking Their First Steps

Leave a comment

Animals may come in all shapes and sizes, but there’s one thing they have in common: They all stumble on their first few steps.  In an adorable video posted to YouTube last month, baby animals take their first steps. Most of the younglings struggle to find their balance, while others quickly get the hang of it.  Though the baby animals in the video have twice the number of legs to deal with, it just goes to show that we’re all a little unsteady at first.

Video: Goldfish Uses Harness To Help Stay Afloat While Swimming

Leave a comment

We’ve seen plenty of animals aided by human ingenuity lately: “Flipper,” a cat who lucked into a sweet set of wheels, and ” Chris P. Bacon,” the piglet given a new lease on life with K’Nex toys, rank pretty high on the cute list. But, as it turns out, we hadn’t seen anything yet. Enter this goldfish. The fish has trouble staying afloat, so her owner — apparently an aquatic MacGyver — fashioned her a homemade, floating harness.
