No, I’m not talking about a mascot for a high school or college. I’m talking about actual, literal bald eagles having a party in the back of a truck in a parking lot in Unalaska, Alaska. And by party, I mean a giant feast on garbage bags of fish, fish heads and whatever else was unfortunately back there.
Then someone called the cops and they scattered the eagle bros. Man, cops won’t even let the symbol of America’s freedom have any fun.
What happens when you strap a camera to the back of a falcon’s back? Well, we’d expect some shakiness as the bird accelerates to get up into the air and then a few minutes of soaring really high, and I guess she sees something because she’s kind of nosediving rig–AND HOLY SHIT DID SHE JUST KILL A DUCK IN MID AIR?!
PBS Digital Studios program “Under H20″ takes us below the surface with marine biologist Craig Musberger to go night diving with some manta rays.
Manta rays are one of nature’s most graceful and eerie animals. In Episode 2 of UnderH2O, we go underwater off the Kona Coast of the Big Island of Hawaii — in the dark of night — to film these enormous creatures. When conditions are right, manta rays flock to this special area in search of giant mouthfuls of plankton which they scoop up as they spin and loop around the divers.
The insides of a manta ray are so strangely fascinating. And they seem so gentle. I would definitely pay good money to go night diving with some of these awesome animals.
Big cats like Marmite just about as much as people who don’t live in England like Marmite. That is, mostly none. And don’t even get me started on Vegemite, you crazy Aussies. And for the record, yes, I have had both and immediately downed my beer to wash the taste out of my mouth. Though, maybe that’s your plan all along. Eat the Marmite? DRINK ALL THE BEER.
I would, however, like to take this time to thank the Italians for Nutella. That spread is delicious.
Normally, we like to focus on adorable animals here and not make people sad with our animal videos. But this one of a koala trying to climb a tree that’s been painted onto a wall just made me feel all sorts of bummed out.
The video was taken in 2007 at the Houston Zoo and shows one of the koalas in their enclosure attempting to scale the wall because he believes that the painted trees are real. Either that or he’s trying to claw his way out, but that’s even more sad, so let’s go for the former.
All I have to say is that there are not nearly enough trees in there for the koalas to climb. There only appears to a be a few measly looking stumps for them to climb and hang from and it just seems cruel. I certainly hope that in the last six years, the Houston Zoo has expanded its enclosures to be more accommodating and lifelike for all their animals.
Also, to the person who posted this to YouTube, don’t call that koala dumb. You’re dumb.
