After tragically losing their son in a drowning accident, a family was reunited with his body when a crocodile pulled him back to the surface, gently carrying the boy to an awaiting rescue crew in the water. In the shocking footage, the mammoth reptile carries the body of the 4-year-old...
Ask this wolf, and he’ll tell you: nothing strikes fear in the heart of your enemies quite like carrying one of their legs as a trophy. Granted, deer are prey for wolves, not enemies in the sense that they’re competition. That distinction lies with coyotes, mountain lions, bears, and other large predators that compete with gray wolves for resources. But this footage is so epic, so startlingly-perfect that it begged for a fitting intro.
Decide if this man is brave or foolhardy after watching him free a wolf from a steel trap using nothing but his hands and a snare pole. The footage, posted to Twitter Jan. 23, shows the individual calmly approaching the trapped gray wolf. After a few attempted swipes and bites by the canine, the man uses a snare pole (not a “stick” as the Twitter post implies) to pin the wolf with one hand as he release-springs the trap with the other.
Mountain lions are some of the most voracious predators in North America. With a combination of stealth, strength, and fearlessness, these big cats routinely take down full-grown deer by themselves. They will also opportunistically feed on elk, turkeys, raccoons, rabbits, and even domestic pets and livestock. However, new photographs confirm that mountain goats are also a food source for mountain lions.
An Australian man is alive after a crocodile took hold of his leg in the country’s Northern Territory. He was collecting the species’ eggs at the time. It is unknown if the nest he raided belonged to the attacking crocodile, but this is likely. Mother crocodiles fiercely protect their nests and nesting territories. Any perceived threat suffers their full wrath if found.
This curious black bear is set for all the dating apps after snatching a City of Boulder wildlife cam and snapping a good 400 selfies. Known for their curiosity and explorative nature, the American black bear (Ursus americanus) hardly ever meets an object they won’t toy with. And while this makes them especially prone to habitation through dumpster diving and trash can exploitation, it can also result in hundreds of hysterical selfies.
Veterinarians at a Florida zoo were forced to sedate their “highly endangered” duo of Cuban crocodiles Tuesday after one was suspected of swallowing a plastic bottle. This procedure came as the result of a zoogoer approaching Zoo Miami officials to admit they dropped a plastic bottle into the crocodile enclosure. When staff entered the enclosure to retrieve it, the bottle was nowhere to be found. This led zookeepers to the assumption that one of the crocodiles consumed it.
WATCH: Man Removes Ears, Lips and Fingers to Look Like ‘Black Alien,’ Ends up Looking Like a Reptile
Over the years, tattoos and piercings have become far more commonplace, with over 30% of Americans having at least one tattoo and around 50% with at least one piercing. Anthony Loffredo is anything but common, however, and has gone to lengths most wouldn’t even consider making his ultimate dream a reality – turning himself into a “black alien.”
Scarface, a crocodile thought to be upwards of 100 years old, recently proved he can devour an entire feral pig without the help of a single tooth. Throughout their lives, crocodiles are capable of regrowing each of their razor-sharp teeth up to 50 times. Eventually, however, if a croc is lucky enough to reach a ripe old age, its teeth no longer regenerate. And while this can be an obstacle, it’s done nothing to slow Scarface.
There are hundreds of millions of asteroids in our Solar System, which means new asteroids are discovered quite frequently. It also means close encounters between asteroids and Earth are fairly common. Some of these close encounters end up with the asteroid impacting Earth, occasionally with severe consequences. A recently discovered...
An asteroid the size of a regulation school bus headed in Earth’s direction was recently detected by NASA. According to reports from the space agency, the hurtling asteroid is known as Asteroid 2023 BU. It was found on January 21 by the agency’s Center for Near Earth Object Studies (CNEOS.)
Today’s most viral video might just be the cutest animal rehab of all time as this little beaver does his best to build a suburban dam. You read that right! If you haven’t come across this adorable footage yet, allow us to impart some daily good-feels. Using whatever he can find around the house, this sweet beaver works as hard as he can to dam up the hallway of his home. And this is a temporary home, mind you, as beavers are wild animals and not pets. More on that below. For now, let’s just sit back and enjoy how ridiculously charming this fellow and his mission are:
Thousands of tiny bear cubs are born across our continent as January rolls into February, and they’re all as adorable as you’d expect. As Tennessee’s Appalachian Bear Rescue exclaims on their social media, “It’s baby bear season! Sows all around the country are denned up and expecting their little ones any day now (if they haven’t already given birth). Last year, ABR received the first cub of 2022 on March 4th. When do you think we will receive our first cub this year?”
For nearly a century, drivers have cruised across California‘s iconic Golden Gate Bridge with nothing but their own car engines and radios providing the soundtrack. Now, however, drivers often hear a less familiar sound while crossing the massive steel construct – an eerie, otherworldly howling. The strange sound...
Most people think of the mountains out west, or the northwoods of Maine, Michigan, or Canada when they think of black bear hunting. However, a southern state is actually arguably the premier black bear hunting location in North America. The swampy coastal forests of eastern North Carolina are home to some of the largest black bears in the world. The region’s comfortably mild temperatures means black bears don’t need to hibernate. That means bears in the area eat all year long and tend to grow larger than in colder places. That much is evident by the absolutely behemoth 717-pound black bear that Marine Corps Veteran Daniel Parrott recently shot.
What do you call these little bugs? USFWS’s recent photo has Americans sending in names that range from regional to hysterical. Roly poly. Pill-bug. Doodlebug. Marvin!? The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) is asking for “no fighting in the comments, please” as they unleash their most recent “informal twitter poll.” The question? “What do you call these critters?”
