Polar Bear Pokes Head Through Window To Ask For Treats47s

Polar Bear Pokes Head Through Window To Ask For Treats

One friendly polar bear which does not look like she belongs to the wilderness finds an open window and comes to say hi. As the video develops, we see that the bear not only pokes her head through the window and puts her big, soft paw on the sill just to say hi, she waits for something more - her treat for the day. It is obvious that this is a habit that she explicitly exhibits on a daily basis judging by the people’s reaction. They are used to the bear’s regular visits and they even tamed and befriended her. These folks are not intimidated at all by her appearance. They are fortunate enough to have a seemingly amiable polar bear stop by for some food. She looks rather keen to try a few cookies. She must have been hungry, because devours the cookies and licks her muzzle pleading for more. Those must have been the most soft, yummy cookies the bear has had. The gargantuan appetite of this giant predator cannot be satisfied with only one crunchy biscuit. She expects some more and as long as she hangs out on the window, she has the capacity to eat not only two or three but a whole packet of biscuits. It is really astonishing how uncomplaining and tolerant she is - waiting patiently for the next bite without making any fuss. Although polar bears are the largest carnivores in the world, this one in the video makes you change your attitude toward polar bears by feeling the need to hug one.

Pelican Waits In Line To Be Served At Fish Store1m11s

Pelican Waits In Line To Be Served At Fish Store

There is nothing worse than waiting in line. Time is too precious to waste it doing nothing. The problem is that you know that you have to remain in that same spot for however long it takes because life might not give you another chance at this opportunity. So you wait, and wait, and wait. Waiting to be served in a store is probably one of the worst ways to spend your time. You might get angry at all the people in front of you, or even angry at the salesperson because they are not working as fast as you would like them to, but try to remember that it’s none of their fault. It’s not their fault that there is such a line, they are doing everything they can as fast as they can, and there is no magic button that can make all of the people go away as soon as you click it. What happens when you live by the beach and get hungry? You stop by the local fish and chips shop. The only problem is waiting to be served! Apparently this pelican possesses all of the patience us humans don’t, because he is calm enough to wait for the service to be done. He looks one way or another, without uttering a word, all the while nosy people love to film him. Nowadays, it gets hard to even order food. We just hope that this fella was able to get his fish in the end.

These Running Ducks Hunt Snails For A Chemical-Free Vineyard1m47s

These Running Ducks Hunt Snails For A Chemical-Free Vineyard

There are roughly 300 companies that produce wine for the public, but most of them turn to chemicals to mow down their main pest - snails. Grape vines are their kibble of choice, which contaminates the harvest. But one particular company turned to a very obvious and chemical-free way of getting rid of those pests - the Indian running duck. It is a win-win scenario for both the producer and the birds - they feed on the snails and fertilize the soil around the vineyard, keeping the grapes free of the slimy intruders, so that delicious wine can be made afterwards. Vergenoegd Wine Estate in Stellenbosch, South Africa, has hundreds of Indian runner ducks in their employ, helping them remove the grape-eating buggers away from the sweet fruit. Basically, the birds are maintenance free; they get to live free-range, running around countless acres of land, munch of the snails and other pests that might attack the vines and they fertilize the land. The ducks have been part of the regular workforce on the vineyard since 1984 and the company even has a breeding program for the feathery helpers on site. Visitors at the vineyard get to see what they call a duck parade, when the ducks go to and from the vineyard. They have become a sort of tourist attraction, as they have a specific allotted time every day: 9:45 in the morning and 3:30 in the afternoon. This is what that parade looks like. They are so hilarious to watch as they scurry out for the spectators in attendance. They're just so tall and awkward yet adorable!

Sneaky Crab Steals GoPro To Create Unbelievable Footage 1m22s

Sneaky Crab Steals GoPro To Create Unbelievable Footage

Batwing Coral Crabs are large, edible crabs that are widespread throughout tropical waters. Its bright red shell and large claws make it hard to miss, although it spends most of the daytime tucked under coral or hidden in small caves in the reef. This beautiful little fellow was lurking in and around a little cave under the coral in Akumal, Mexico. He was spotted by a swimmer as he ventured out to explore the world around his home. The swimmer put his GoPro camera in front of the cave and the crab wasted no time. He dashed out excitedly, grabbed it and dragged it back inside. He was left with the camera for a few minutes to see what happened. The footage later revealed that the crab was extremely curious about the shiny camera, and possibly his own reflection. The crab moved the camera about and stared right into the lens the entire time it was in his cave. Unknowingly, the crab created the most spectacular footage of his eyes, claws and even his mouth. His mandibles move constantly as he looks thoughtfully at the GoPro. With the camera on the ocean bottom, it creates the sense that we are looking at a monstrous crab from below. These crabs can grow to 6 inches in width across the shell. They are more likely to be seen at night when they venture out in the open to hunt for food. This adventurous fellow was seen on the prowl in broad daylight. The crab's claws can be seen exploring the lens and around behind the camera. He seems to stare at it curiously and this provides an incredible close up look at his mouth and eyes, as well as his belly. Amazingly, every part of the crab tucks into nooks on his shell to provide a perfect armor. Even the parts of his mouth can be folded in for protection. One of the cutest features of this little crab is the light spot on his shell behind each eye that give the impression of perpetually raised eyebrows. It's difficult to say whether the crab's initial reaction was curiosity or whether he saw the shiny camera as potential food, but the footage that followed is priceless!

Wild Crow Actually Speaks To Squirrel At Bird Feeder1m26s

Wild Crow Actually Speaks To Squirrel At Bird Feeder

A wild crow came to the bird feeder and found a big, fat squirrel feasting on the peanuts that were supposed to be for him. Squirrels and crows are enemies and never get along, especially when food is at stake, but instead of starting a fight, the crow did something unbelievable. He said "hello". Twice! He's a completely wild crow, but he can say hello in a voice that sounds much like a parrot. What's more, the crow actually understands that the word hello is a greeting. This is an amazing and heart warming story that really begins in 2011. A nest of baby crows fell out of a tree and the attempt to return them was unsuccessful. The parents did not return for the crows and time was running out. They needed to be fed every few hours at that age and a decision was made to bring the crows to Dr. Kristy Hiltz, a veterinarian at Sherbrooke Heights Animal Hospital. She was known to treat any animal that needed help. Kristy and her family took on the job of raising five noisy and very hungry crows. This meant night time feedings, screaming demands for food every few hours and lots of cleaning. Within two weeks the crows were able to fly. They began roosting in the trees outside and returning at sunrise for breakfast. Unfortunately, one of the five did not survive the early days and the family of five became four. The four crows, the famous "Freds", became known in the neighborhood for their friendliness and their mischief. They were called Russell Crow, Crow Magnon, Baby Fred, and Adventure Fred. Kristy's family tried to teach them how to say "Fred" but instead, they actually learned to say "Hello". They greeted Kristy and the kids with this each time they came back for food. The crows were taught to find worms and eat berries from bushes. They were encouraged to find their own meals and were given less prepared food as time went on. Crows are highly social, surprisingly intelligent, and they even demonstrated a sense of humor and a protective nature towards the family. They captured everybody's hearts. Amazingly, the Freds were able to join a family of wild crows that lived nearby. They became completely independent and even migrated south at the end of that summer. Kristy watched for the crows when spring came and she was thrilled to hear at least two talking crows at the bird feeder. Occasionally, a crow flying overhead would land in a nearby tree and say "hello". They would not take food from her anymore, but they would let her get closer than the truly wild crows would. In 2018, Kristy's husband, Dave, put his GoPro out at the crow feeder as he occasionally does, to record the animals that come for the daily supply of peanuts. When he reviewed the footage, he was shocked to find that one of the Freds had perched beside a cheeky squirrel and spoken. Attempts at communication between animal species is extremely rare. Kristy was also thrilled to see the adorable attempt at conversation caught on video. It is reassuring each time they speak because it tells Kristy that her crows are alive and well. It also tells her that they still remember the summer of 2011 and their human family. The full story can be seen in the video: Rescued Baby Crows Return Each Spring To Greet Their Saviors

Cows Listen To Accordion Music, Happily Jingling Their Bells2m34s

Cows Listen To Accordion Music, Happily Jingling Their Bells

A herd of cows rush over to hear accordion music played by Don Bitterlich in Garmisch, Germany. You can clearly see how much they truly enjoy the music and they are not the only ones. Have you ever seen the clip where a jazz bands plays for another herd of bovines? How about the one where a farmer plays Lorde's “Royals” on his trombone? So what is it that draws these cows to music? The answer to this question is actually pretty simple – music helps them relax, just like it would any other animal (yes, humans included). Today's dairy farms are noisy and busy places, what with all the clanking of cow bells and the swooshing sound of the automated milkers. All that racket can stress a cow out and a stressed cow is not a productive cow. Dairy farmers had to become the experts on how to comfort their cows, so they would do anything from air conditioning the barns, to making them as pleasant to live in for their milk producing bovines. And this is not even a new thing. Back in 2001, psychologists from the University of Leichester in England showed that cows liked slow music so much, that it increased the production of milk by 3%. Animals can be fond of many different sounds and noises, so much so that they could even get attracted to them. That is exactly the case in this video as a herd of cows comes over to hear accordion music played by this man in Garmisch, Germany. It's so crazy how they truly enjoy the music he plays! So there you have it. If your cows are a little stingy on the milk, just play them something soothing. Like R.E.M. or Simon & Garfunkel. Have you ever seen something like this? Do you know any animals that are attracted to music or a certain instrument? Let us know down in the comment section below! Please share this video with your family and friends as it is one that should not be missed!

Unique spider mimics flower to attract prey2m40s

Unique spider mimics flower to attract prey

The Flower Crab Spider (Family Thomisidae) does not build webs to catch their prey. Instead, they are ambush predators. They usually sit motionless on flowers and grab visiting insects such as bees, flies or butterflies with their crab-like front legs. Some species can even change color to match the flower they are on! But this species, with the scientific name Epicadus heterogaster from the Amazon rainforest of Ecuador, can be found on green leaves and mimics itself a flower by reflecting ultraviolet (UV) light, just as flowers do, in order to attract pollinating insects. Even its movements are jerky, like a flower swaying in the wind. It produces silk for safety lines, but in this video it gets somewhat entangled into its own silk. As most spiders it has four pairs of eyes.

Friendly Husky Tries To Make Acquaintance With A Neighborhood Horse

An extremely heartwarming moment is captured on camera when a friendly Husky decides to make acquaintance to a new friend. When you think of a friendly creature, the first thing that pops to mind is a dog. They want to make friends with everyone, or in this particular case – a horse. Horses and dogs have worked with humans for thousands of years and helped us build our civilization from the ground up. Without these two species, it could be argued, human society would not have progressed to where we are today. This adorable video shows what happens when a dog tries to engage in play mode with a horse. The friendly pooch in this video tries to get horse’s attention by inviting the creature to a staring contest, who also seems really interested in interacting with the pooch. Check out this priceless interaction between Max the Husky and a curious horse from the neighborhood. What an amazing friendship these two might have! Unusual and unique friendships are always sweet to spot. Many believe that the cat and mouse dispute will go on forever. As the one between cats and dogs. However there is always room for exceptions with many cases. Dogs’ happy and friendly nature enables them to befriend any other animals with just a little help from their human. Their high spirits and happy character is just enough to persuade almost anyone to become their friend. This video is a classical case of such occasion. Check out how thrilled this dog is to befriend the neighborhood horse! Even though this horse is much bigger and stronger than the Husky, that doesn’t stop these two from sharing a unique friendship. The horse decided to give the dog a chance to get to know him better, and the sniffing and staring contest began! Cuteness overload!

Tough Kangaroo On Steroids Flexes Muscles For Camera1m00s

Tough Kangaroo On Steroids Flexes Muscles For Camera

A curious footage has emerged of a tall, bulky kangaroo staring at the camera of a filmmaker, following her every move from the other side of a tall fence, scratching his belly and flexing his muscles. He definitely looks like a boxer, and not surprisingly he is called Rocky! This is the frightening moment when a woman came face-to-face with a huge muscle-bound kangaroo. She explained that she is normally confident around animals but felt threatened when the “macho” marsupial approached her closer to the fence. Watch how jacked this kangaroo is as it flexes for the camera. Incredible! Kangaroos are largely docile and instinctively scared of humans but can act unpredictably if they feel threatened. They have been known to attack humans, although incidents are rare. When kangaroos do attack humans they do so as if they were another kangaroo by grappling with their forepaws or sitting back and kicking out with their hind legs. The kangaroo has a really big body and we have never seen one that muscular before, he is the true definition of a big macho male. Watching this curious video of the kangaroo's muscular physique it makes us wonder how he formed them muscles. Animal's impressive bodybuilder-like muscular shoulders, biceps and chest and threatening posture are giving us the chills. It feels like he came straight out of a boxing match! His claws are really big, even scarier than his muscles. We have never seen a kangaroo be so defensive and ready to attack, it definitely looks like he is puffing his chest muscles up to look scarier and tougher, like he likes to take her on in a boxing match. Creepy!

Owl Butterfly Chrysalis Perfectly Mimics Snake's Head43s

Owl Butterfly Chrysalis Perfectly Mimics Snake's Head

A bizarre video of an owl butterfly chrysalis mimicking its head in a snake manner has us confused and perplexed. This chrysalis of the Daring Owl-Butterfly, filmed in the Jardin Eco-botanico Mindo, Ecuador, mimics the head of a snake which gives it an advantage in the struggle for survival by scaring off predators such as birds. It has fake eyes, a fake mouth, fake scales and even strikes like a snake if disturbed! Researchers claim that butterflies and moths mimic snakes and foxes to fool predators. The dazzling colours and patterns on their wings make butterflies and moths some of the most eye catching creatures in the animal kingdom, but these dramatic designs also help turn the insects into master illusionists capable of fooling potential predators. Many species of butterfly and moth are capable of using their wing patterns to trick predators into thinking they are much larger and even more dangerous animals. This butterfly species has patterns on its wings that when viewed from the right angle take on the appearance of a snake's head. When disturbed, it writhes its head and body to complete the illusion. Amazing! The evolution has shaped butterflies and moths' wing patterns in a way that allows them to exploit their predators' eyesight and play with their sense of perspective. Footage shows owl butterfly chrysalis being pet by the head by human’s finger. It is interesting how the moment the finger touches its head, it instinctively writhes its head up, to mimic a snake movement! Not only it mimics its appearance, it can also mimic its behavior too. Incredible!

This time Michael decided to play his flute in front of camels and elephants and see their reaction to his music. Moments after hearing the flute sounds, one of the elephants starts to move his happy feet, dancing to the music, swaying his trunk to the rhythm. We were amazed at how the elephant reacted to the flute playing and started swinging its trunk back and forth, as the man continued to play his instrument. This is the best interaction we have witnessed regarding an elephant responding to music. It is amazing how Michael’s performance made this musical animals sway its trunk and happy feet to the rhythm in time with the music and even moved its whole body around in a sort of dance. Did you know that elephants were musical fans? Yes, it’s true! They are apparently especially fond of a certain type of flute commonly used by Native Americans. In the video we can see Michael Telapary playing his Native Flute for camels and elephants, and witnessing their reactions to it, as part of a series he calls “Michael Telapary’s Flute Tales”. One of the elephants seems to enjoy the music and is much fonder than the other elephant and the camels. Cuteness overload!

Strange bird makes truly unique 'cork-popping' call29s

Strange bird makes truly unique 'cork-popping' call

Meet the bird with probably the most unusual and unique call in the whole of Africa. The Black-Bellied Bustard, a large ground-dwelling bird found in woodland and open grassland areas of sub-Saharan Africa. These birds are uncommon local residents in the Kruger National Park, South Africa. The most attractive and fascinating part about this whole bird is by far its unique and rather funny call. At first the male bird is busy shaking and preening his feathers. It's very important for this male to look at his best and in great condition. During the call, he displays with his tail held in an upright fanned position. He lifts his head high and then the call starts with a "quaaaark"... There is silence for 2 -3 seconds during which he pulls his neck back down. He then finishes the call with a funny "kwww ick" sound or otherwise referred to as a "cork popping" sound. The male bird uses this unique sound to promote and advertise his presence in his territory so other males can stay away. At the same time, it also let's all the females in the area know that he is the man, and ready for action. This is a call that people will seldom only hear over the grassy plains of the Kruger Park, never mind seeing the bird in action while performing this unique call. What a great experience to have this bird right in front of us, showing off in style.

Foot long venomous fireworm found at the beach49s

Foot long venomous fireworm found at the beach

The Bearded Fireworm is a creature that grows to over a foot long and lives among coral, rock and sand at tropical beaches and on coral reefs. It can be found in the shallows or as deep as 120 feet. It has clusters of stinging bristles along its entire length that are capable of delivering a powerful neurotoxin to anyone who touches one. The sting will produce intense irritation, painful burning, nausea and dizziness. This can last for several hours. The hairs on the fireworm flare out when the worm is disturbed. The hairs are hollow and filled with venom. They penetrate the skin and break off upon contact. These creatures can be found on most beaches throughout the Caribbean and even southern United States. They eat coral, shrimp, anemone, and small crustaceans. They comb through debris to locate uneaten particles of food and will occasionally eat feces from other creatures. Surprisingly, fireworms are edible for fish and crabs. Fireworms are more commonly found out of their burrows during the night, preferring to stay hidden during the day. The fireworm is capable of reproducing sexually, but also by breaking into two segments. The segments will each grow a head or a tail, growing into new individuals. Fireworms are bioluminescent during sexual activity. Scuba divers and underwater photographers are delighted to see the beautiful and unusual creatures but they avoid physical contact with them at all costs. Fireworms are avoided by aquarium enthusiasts due to their hostility and voracious appetite for coral and other creatures. Scientists do not actually know how long the fireworm can live as little research has been done on the creatures. Aptly named, it is called a fireworm due to the intense burning they inflict.

Ensign Wasp waves its abdomen like a flag

This Ensign Wasps, in the family Evaniidae, was filmed in the Amazon rainforest of Ecuador. The black abdomen (metasoma) moves up and down as if signalling with a flag, which gave rise to the common name ensign wasp. They are completely harmless to humans and actually are beneficial since they lay an egg in the egg cases of cockroaches and the hatched wasp larva feeds on the roach eggs.

Frightened Deer Scales 6 Foot Fence To Escape Backyard46s

Frightened Deer Scales 6 Foot Fence To Escape Backyard

Sometimes we don’t really have an explanation about the things we do. We may be lacking a bit in the muscle department, but we still manage to lift some heavy weight when we are in danger and even run faster than a gazelle when we are being chased. It all boils down to survival instinct. Our body senses that we are in some sort of danger and our brain sends a message to our muscles to work harder so we can survive. You may be wondering how all of this is possible and the simple answer would be - hormones. Humans might consider themselves superior to other species, but at the end of the day, we are all animals. This means that if hormones help us survive, the same thing happens with other animals and this video shows us exactly how it’s done. In this footage we have a young deer that jumped the fence into these people's backyard. It was trapped inside and couldn’t find an escape route. They opened the gate, waiting hours for it to leave, but it was to no avail. Once the deer started coming dangerously close to the pool they decided to try to draw its attention to the gate, fearing he might fall inside. The deer, however, had other ideas, leaping over the 6ft fence as if it was nothing. After it made its escape, the homeowners looked over the fence and it was already halfway down the street. No deer were harmed in the making of this video!

Caterpillar disguises as feather to escape hungry birds2m14s

Caterpillar disguises as feather to escape hungry birds

This Caterpillar filmed near Mindo in Ecuador looks like a feather which presumably gives it an advantage in the struggle for survival since predators such as birds will not perceive it as food. There are more than 3500 species of butterflies and some 10000 of moths in Ecuador and their larvae have evolved different strategies to escape predators. Some hide in the vegetation due to camouflage coloration, others resemble a stick or moss or mimic bird droppings. Bagworms build cases out of silk and materials such as leafs, wood and soil as camouflage, such as this Pagoda bagworm: https://rumble.com/v48got. Other caterpillars on the contrary are highly colorful (aposematic coloration) to warn potential predators that they are unpalatable or even toxic or have venomous spines. Some caterpillars expose fake eyes to deter predators, such as this snake mimic caterpillar from Ecuador: https://rumble.com/v311ab. But this is an exceptional case of a caterpillar disguised as a feather. It even makes steps back as it moves as if it was agitated by the wind!

Giant Pacific Octopus Sucks Up To Scuba Diver3m16s

Giant Pacific Octopus Sucks Up To Scuba Diver

This incredible footage was recorded by Dennis Chow at Dillon Rock near the amazing Browning Pass, just north of Port Hardy on Vancouver Island, British Columbia. While exploring a wall during this particular dive, Dennis, Shaz and Wes noticed a Giant Pacific Octopus hiding among the rocks and plant life of the wall. These creatures can grow to a 16 foot span and weight upwards of 110 pounds. As you will see in this amazing footage, the creature had transformed to replicate his surroundings. The amazing part about this is that they are colorblind but are still able to duplicate the color and texture of their surroundings when feeling threatened by a predator. These scuba divers are extremely experienced instructors and dive shop owners. At no time was this animal at harm, nor was it not at the top of their list of priorities of maintaining its safety and well being. Once Shaz began coaxing this creature out for a better look at his impressive size, you notice he too starts to "check out" Shaz by extending out a few legs to test what was near. Once he started to fully engage with Shaz, Wes was definitely near to ensure her safety at all times. Octopus will engulf its prey as this one did with Shaz, and then if its regular food, inject crustaceans like crabs with a paralyzing saliva then dismember them with their beaks. This guy definitely had Shaz in his grip, until Wes decided it was time to help release him and go back to his normal habitat. Incredible!
