Two falcons fight for meal, jackal walks away with it

The Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park is a vibrant semi-desert, with a surprising abundance of life. It is a place where animals face a daily struggle to find food and water. Amazingly they manage to survive and flourish in extremely difficult conditions. In their quest for survival, wild animals living in this enormous open wilderness area become extremely adaptive to their environment. This can lead to very unusual, innovative and fascinating behavior from all kinds of wildlife species in order for them to be resourceful and opportunistic. We spend a few hours at a waterhole in the reserve, watching mostly birds coming to the water. Over time, predators and birds of prey have learned that the smaller birds coming to drink in the mornings and afternoons can actually be a great food source for them. Hunting a doves or finches that can suddenly take off with lightning speed when threatened, is a great challenge for the predators and not an easy task. One specific bird of prey that is faster and quicker than most birds is called the Lanner Falcon. These falcons are extremely good aerial hunters. Once a flock of small birds start gathering around the water hole, the falcon would come speeding through the air and swoop over the water hole in attempt to grab a small bird. We noticed nearby under a tree was a black backed jackal, patiently lying and watching the falcons trying to catch a meal. Suddenly we saw one falcon that managed to grab a bird call a Namaqua dove. What happened next blew our minds. The nearby jackal saw this and surprisingly started running after the falcon, chasing it at full speed. At the exact same time another Lanner falcon came speeding past the jackal, heading straight for the other falcon with the meal in its talons. The one falcon caught up with the other one and it was clear the falcon was making an attempt to steal the dove from the other falcon. The slow motion part of the video shows the dramatic but brief interaction where the first falcon let go of the dove and the second one trying to grab it in the air. The second falcon unbelievably missed its target by a small margin and the dove tumbled straight sown to the ground. Within a flash the jackal was right there and ran straight towards the dropped meal and claimed the prize. We were absolutely amazed by the fact that the jackal ran after one of the fastest birds of prey in the hope that it might steal the kill from the falcon. How the jackal knew that there was an opportunity to get a meal was just mind blowing and incredible to watch.

With winter time approaching and temperatures rapidly plummeting Charlie the french bulldog was due a new warmer and comfier bed, this video shows Charlie giving his owners approval when they introduce him to this new luxury. A good bed provides insulation, support for our backs and joints, warmth, and a feeling of security. When a dog has a bed of their own, they get all of these benefits, and more. When pet owners ask what items they need to purchase for their dog, a good dog bed is always at the top of the list alongside a collar, lead, food, and feeding/water bowls. Dog beds are extremely important, in fact, we consider beds essential for all dogs regardless of age, breed or size. Dog beds provide important benefits: Insulation-Dog beds keep your dog off the cold, hard floors. In the wintertime especially, many dogs love to curl up in a nesting-type bed which provides warmth for both comfort and good health. Privacy & security-Beds give your dog his own space throughout your home to retreat to whenever necessary. They will love having one or more places to call their very own. Cushioning for joints and bones- a soft place to rest is especially important for older, arthritic, or overweight dogs. Injury prevention-dog beds help prevent injuries by keeping your dog from jumping up to and down from high furniture. This is especially important for older dogs and smaller breeds. Beds are so much more than soft squares placed around the home, dog beds offer many benefits and play a large role in your dogs ongoing health and satisfaction.

Spectators can't understand how street magician is floating

"Wow, how is he doing this?" Roy asked his cousin as they walked past a street performer in Cozumel. Street performers come in many variations. There's "The Statue" who may paint themselves in Gold and stand motionless for what seems an eternity until a gracious passerby tosses a coin into the performers "tip jar", creating the "statue " to come alive for a short period. Magicians and slight of hand performers are also amazing. How they make that coin pass through a steel bar inside a deck of cards box, that is amazing. One man bands are a huge favorite. Pianists with fingers that move like they are magically plucking the keys and guitarists that can bring goosebumps to your skin. On this day after departing the cruise ship terminal for a day on Cozumel, Elsa and her husband as well as her cousin Roy and his wife walked through the cruise ship terminal. Just like at almost all airports, you are directed through a shopping area. Here on Cozumel, it is more like walking through a whole mall. With a total of 4 ships docked this day, Cozumel was definitely happy to see more than 12 thousand tourists arriving. Walking past multiple t-shirt stores, leather shops, and kiosks selling everything from sunglasses to coconut hummingbird hanging plant holders, Roy had one thing on his mind: Coffee. He had spotted from the ship a famous coffee shop so he was determined to track it down in the mall. But.... during his trek through the shops and kiosks he also noticed a sole street performer. Dressed in a very bright gold outfit, floating motionless ABOVE the floor! "How is this possible? How is he doing this?" Roy seemed amazed. Checking below the performer, around and even behind, Roy could not figure out how this performer was accomplishing this amazing feat. Astounded, Roy reached out and fist bumped the street performer, showing his gratitude and then tossed a few dollars into the performers tip jar. Many tourists passed while Elsa and her family observed this street performer and Roy was not the only one struggling to figure out what mystical force was levitating this fellow above the floor!
