Researchers at Haverford College, Pennsylvania literally got a bird’s eye view of how falcons hunt when they attached tiny cameras to the predatory birds in the USA and Europe. Researchers worked with 13 falconers on the project. By analyzing video taken during flight, scientists were able reconstruct and understand the birds’ hunting technique.
Brothers Austin, Connor, and Trevor Bartz of New Brighton, Minnesota did just that. The shark that they constructed from ice and snow measures 16 feet in length. The snow fish is complete with teeth, dorsal fin, gills, and menacing eyes.
A python that killed a security guard near a five-star hotel in Bali, Indonesia remains at large, according to Agence France-Presse.
More than 60 people were injured on Christmas Day when a school of piranha ripped through them in the waters off Parana River beach near Rosario, Argentina. Seven children were injured in the attack with one very unlucky seven-year-old girl bitten so badly that part of her finger had to be amputated.
A new study published in the journal Animal Cognition in December suggests that not only can some shark species tell which way a human is facing, but that they tend to avoid that human’s field of vision. When those sharks do approach humans they tend to do so from the rear.
Evidence of why the Cape buffalo is considered the most dangerous of the Big Five became easily apparent to visitors of South Africa’s Kruger National Park when they witnessed a lion being tossed about like a ragdoll by an enraged buff.
"It's taken me almost 40 years to catch a 25-pounder, but this is simply incredible," says Scottish angler Shamus Jennings (could a guy named Shamus be from anywhere other than Scotland?) of the monstrous fish he caught at Boleside Beat on the River Tweed in the Scottish Borders this past weekend.
Despite the fact that invasive feral pigs have all but taken over the lower 48 states (Texas is said to have close to 4 million animals within its borders alone) and have caused millions upon millions of dollars in crop damage, the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation announced Friday that it has introduced legislation that would prohibit hunters from trapping or killing “free-range Eurasian boars.”
The animal was shot in Wayne County by a landowner last month. Once the hunter saw up close just how large the “coyote” was, he thought the animal could be a wolf so he contacted the MDC to surrender the animal as wolves are a protected species in Missouri.
What does the fox say? Apparently that he’s hungry for catfish. So hungry that he’ll pull one from the waters himself if need be.
That’s pretty much what a Lithuanian fisherman caught on film when he came across this fox trying to haul in this giant catfish.
