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.

Bunny rabbit plays Jenga with little girl

A little girl was playing the game Jenga when Tex the bunny rabbit decided to join in. He kept knocking it down and throwing the pieces around, so his owner set the GoPro up to catch him doing it. He even lets her build a tower over his head with the pieces of the game. Tex is a house rabbit and has always been very playful with the children's toys, he is very friendly and loves affection, he is a Rex breed of rabbit, his fur is like velvet to touch. He is also 10 years old which is incredible as the major drawback is that a Rex has a shorter lifespan than a lot of other breeds. Generally speaking, they are expected to live around 5-6 years if not neutered, a neutered rabbit can have its life extended to around 10 years. They got Tex of a family member 7 years ago now and he is not neutered, so its quite something that he is ten and still very playful. Rex rabbits have a relatively calm temperament and are generally very good-natured. They are intelligent and affectionate, very maternal (often mothering other rabbits), and enjoy company. They can be quite boisterous and playful, but are usually good with children and other pets. Special Requirements: Rex rabbits do not need grooming, if necessary they can be cleaned by wiping over with a damp cloth. Also, Rex rabbits are prone to sore hocks.

At a recent charity event, exotic super car owners opened their car doors to the crowd, offering a full throttle thrill ride on a closed track for a donation to Cops for Cancer. This generous lady made a donation for both her and her son to experience the Lamborghini Huracan Performante, one of the fastest road legal automobiles in the world. A camera was installed in the car to record the enthusiasm and the reactions of the passengers. As we can see by the smile and the shock, this was more than she bargained for as she shouts with excitement and holds on for dear life. There were many beautiful machines available for this event, including Ferraris, Audis, Mercedes, Nissan GTRs, and a few Lamborghinis. This particular ride was provided by Ghostrider, an anonymous and mysterious figure who is a legend in the car scene. He's a known philanthropist and driving force behind many charity events, although very few people know his true identity. His car is a lime green Lamborghini with a V10 engine that boasts an incredible horsepower. It will accelerate from 0-60mph in a mere 2.9 seconds, which is less time than all but the most powerful street motorcycles.
