Red Hot Chili Peppers' Bassist Is Up For A Jamming Session With Koko The Gorilla

Red Hot Chili Peppers' bassist Flea met with Koko the gorilla for a jamming session. Flea will remember this unique experience for the rest of his life. Are you jealous of Koko for having the opportunity to play bass with the famous rock star? Footage shows the bassist showing Koko how to play on his bass guitars to which Koko responds by plucking the strings and taking matter in his own hands! The leader is born! Do you think Flea gave a music lesson to this primate or was it the other way round? Either way, Flea is happy that he had the opportunity to hang out with the famed Koko the Gorilla at the Gorilla Foundation in Woodside, California. "This is just the greatest thing that could ever happen. This is the day that I will never forget in my life," says Flea. Watch and be amazed as the 45-year-old Koko plucks, fiddles and nuzzles the instrument. From the Gorilla Foundation inform that Koko was absolutely thrilled by the mellow sounds of the bass guitar during the jamming session with Flea. Koko even took the courage to strum on Flea's bass guitar. Now, has any other fan done that? The foundation also promised "future collaborations" between the bassist and the primate. Lucky Koko! During their encounter, Koko took advantage of an opportunity that every rock fan would love to, getting hands on one of Flea’s bass guitars. Although it might be late for this gorilla to launch a new career as a rock star, Koko seems to have gotten a basic understanding of at least how the bass is held, with one hand firmly around the neck and the other hand strumming away. Let’s hope that Koko sticks with the bass and invites us to a new jamming session soon! Credit: Ron Cohn and The Gorilla Foundation/www.koko.org

Boy feeds ravenous orphaned crows with chopsticks14s

Boy feeds ravenous orphaned crows with chopsticks

A nest of baby crows fell from a tree and all efforts to return the babies to their parents were unsuccessful. Rather than let them starve, a family from Ontario cared for the crows and taught them how to find food and fend for themselves. Here, you can see how they fed the crows with chopsticks when they were very young. They eventually integrated into a family of wild crows but actually return to the bird feeder in the back yard most days.

Vicious piranha feast on salmon fillet

A tank of hungry piranha are given a salmon fillet for the first time. It doesn't take them long to figure out that salmon is delicious. They take turns biting off chunks and darting away. Piranha are a very nervous fish. They are well aware that when the feeding starts, they are also at risk of being bitten, which would turn them into part of the meal.

Siamese Fighting Fish Jumps Out Of Water To Go Through A Hoop1m08s

Siamese Fighting Fish Jumps Out Of Water To Go Through A Hoop

If you think that fish are not fun pets, then prepare to be wowed! El Guapo is probably the most talented Betta fish we've ever seen! Watch him repeatedly jump through a ring held above the water by his owner. That's incredible! Who said that you can't teach an old fish new tricks? Bettas are one of the most popular breeds of aquarium fish worldwide. Known as "the jewel of the orient", they show their brightly colored skins only when agitated, although certain breeders have been able to make this permanent. Bettas are territorial and can become very aggressive, so it's better to keep one betta of either sex in a large aquarium - the bigger, the better. Footage shows the amazing trick this fish learned how to pull following owner’s lead. A fish can be seen swimming around happily in a fishbowl. Moments later, owner places an orange hoop over the water, high enough for the hoop to touch the water and the fish to notice its shape. Almost immediately, the fish approaches the hoop and stares at it for a while, obviously intrigued by its presence. Judging by the way the happy fish looks at the hoop, it seems to be enchanted by its being, or maybe it is just preparing to jump. Amazingly, after few seconds, the finned animal makes an effort and jumps high enough to fly over the hoop. Incredible! Pet-owners often tend to teach their dogs new tricks, but have you ever considered teaching your fish some tricks? This talented fish has been taught by its owner to jump through hoops on command and she scores with flying colors. Amazing!

Seagull Plays Shell Game, Wins Every Time52s

Seagull Plays Shell Game, Wins Every Time

We all know the three cup shell game, in which three inverted cups are moved about and contestants - in this case a very smart seagull - must spot which is the one with the delicious treat underneath. You definitely won't want to miss this! This seagull is no dummy though, dominating every round and reaping the rewards! Maybe the bird is just a compulsive gambler…hmm. Let’s see what happens. First, the seagull is presented with three identical plastic cups. Then, he is presented with his treat. The man places the treat beneath the first cup and shuffles all three three times. The birds doesn’t even stop to think for a second. Instead, he just goes to the cup in the middle, flips it over and voila - there is his reward, which he gulps down right away. Let’s try that again. The man shows the bird his cups again, then places the treat beneath the middle cup this time and shuffles again. Like a charm, the seagull waits until the human steps back so that he may get his treat once again. Well color us impressed. Mr. Gull! This bird isn’t the only one with the incredible ability to follow his treat! Fudge the German Shepherd is also a master at the shell game! Watch as his owner shows him the treat, then places it under the first cup and does a very quick shuffle on the floor. For a moment there even we lost its, but not clever Fudge! Good boy!

Googly-eyed stubby squid spotted in ocean deep2m27s

Googly-eyed stubby squid spotted in ocean deep

The team spotted this Stubby Squid off the coast of California at a depth of 900 meters (2,950 feet). The stubby squid (Rossia pacifica) looks like a cross between an octopus and squid, but is more closely related to cuttlefish. This species spends life on the seafloor, activating a sticky mucus jacket and burrowing into the sediment to camouflage, leaving their eyes poking out to spot prey like shrimp and small fish. Rossia pacifica is found in the Northern Pacific from Japan to Southern California, most commonly seen up to 300m deep, but specimens have been collected at 1000m depth. E/V Nautilus is exploring the ocean studying biology, geology, archeology, and more. Watch http://www.nautiluslive.org for live video from the ocean floor. For live dive updates follow along on social media at http://www.facebook.com/nautiluslive and http://www.twitter.com/evnautilus on Twitter.

GoPro footage captures large snake's amazing escape

Who would have guessed that a 4 foot long milk snake is able to climb out of a large garbage pail with such ease? It also climbs a camera tripod and coiles around the GoPro before slithering away. Milk snakes are a very beneficial predator to have in your yard. In addition to having beautiful markings, they rid your home of vermin like mice and rats. This snake was found in a pile of mulch that was being moved. It was relocated to a safer spot nearby but it escaped in the process, leaving some amazing footage before it disappeared.

What Do You Feed a Pet Crocodile?

Occurred: April 16, 2014 / Rockbank, Australia Info from Licensor: "Here is Jilfia, my 'pet' Saltwater Crocodile, demanding to be fed at the back door of my home, and when allowed, will also venture inside my home for more food. Jilfia, who is very intelligent and was captive bred, has been raised as a “pet" in a domestic environment. However, she does have her own home (complete with an artificial environment and large pool of heated water) situated in an enclosure in my backyard." - Vicki Lowing
