Angry hummingbird headbutts other hummingbird at feeder

It's a tough world for competing hummingbirds. They are often seen chasing each other like fighter jets through yards. While they chase each other a lot, it's rare to actually see them make contact. Watch these two come to blows after spending the morning chasing the other away from the feeder. Thankfully, they are both unharmed and continued to chase each other throughout the day. Amazing!

Fighting Hairless Chimpanzees Cause Tense Scene At The Zoo 1m02s

Fighting Hairless Chimpanzees Cause Tense Scene At The Zoo

We have seen male chimpanzees in action many times and we know their dominant behavior. If you haven’t stumbled upon harsh mammal dominance, make sure you stick around for a moment to witness the action as self-confident males craving for attention try to claim dominance over the pride. It's all for recognition! These are the muscular hairless chimpanzees from the Twycross Zoo in Atherstone, England. Jambo and Mongo are a father and son duo that are both suffering from hereditary alopecia, which is the general medical term for hair loss. When chimps look like they are fighting, it's actually called displaying. It's about intimidating the opponent with lots of uproar and bluster. Intense! Glass or not, watching chimpanzees charge at you only to pound on their chests, is definitely a scary experience! In this video, we are fazed by what these huge mammals are trying to achieve as they engage in a fierce game of chase in their enclosure at the zoo. This is typical behavior, it is just what chimpanzees do. They just exude that dominance and they want to show that any way they can, while making a lot of noise and fuss about it. The pounding of chests and the angry charging, makes chimpanzees seem pretty scary to be around! Now, imagine dealing with a dozen raging mammals all at once. Scary, right!? In this footage we see over a dozen chimpanzees engaging into a fierce game of chase as if they were playing tag together. Showing the others who’s in charge, a hairless male chimpanzee can be seen painting the town red, claiming dominance over this game of chase. Watch as he charges straight to the other mates with such incredible force that we think he’s going to lose it. We bet he is the one causing this whole chaos at the zoo encounter. Next time, we hope he learns how to hold his horses, and exercise his dominance elsewhere, and not disturb his mates at the zoo. Apparently, this is not the first time that chimpanzees from the Twycross Zoo in Atherstone, England, cause a tense scene. In another video we see a dominant chimpanzee showing everybody that he's the boss . He charges through his enclosure, walking like a human and then hurling food at the visitors. You can hear the loud bang against the window! Another hilarious footage has emerged of an over-confident male gorilla exercising dominance in his zoo enclosure. However, his heroic act was tainted with an epic slip up. Who would have known that even a silverback gorilla can slip up? He slipped so much that he did the splits! Adorable! Imagine going to the ZOO to visit all those exotic animals, only to witness the rare sight of chimpanzees engaging into a fierce game of tag. Footage shows over a dozen aggressive chimpanzees furiously raging in their zoo enclosure, painting the town red with their extra dose of adrenaline. Watch as these chimpanzees engage in fierce fight over dominance in their cage. You sure wouldn’t want to get in their way as they try to settle the feud! The massive mammals are clearly showing visitors their impressive strength as they try to prove who’s the alpha male! Unlike this intense video of raging chimpanzees, this heartwarming footage shows the emotional moment when two hairless chimpanzees share their love and affection for each other , acting like lovers do in a way you would never expect it! Jambo from the Twycross Zoo in England is completely relaxed in his new enclosure called Eden. He seems totally in love and besotted with his female mate. He is caressing her foot gently, while she is playing hard to get and keeps pulling away. Just like humans, you can see her later putting her hands around his neck in a loving gesture. Then she starts to kiss his bald head gently. The next bit is just amazing as Jambo pulls away and stretches out his lips towards her. She then gently bites his lips and pulls on it. She continues to investigate his teeth for a few seconds before biting his lip again. He then continues with a French kiss, sticking out his tongue. He even closes his eyes for a second to enjoy the intimate moment! Afterwards he gently bites her brows. You can easily see how animal love doesn't differ much from our own. Even an alpha male, that shows everybody who the boss is by intimidating the opponent with lots of noise and bluster, that he can be also very gentle. An amazing animal couple. And for Jambo it shows that being a bit different doesn't stop you from doing anything, from becoming the boss to a gentle lover. The question on your mind is, why is Jambo hairless? People also call him the 'naked chimp'. Some people think they shaved him or that he is ill. The truth is, the ape has Alopecia, a medical term for hair loss and he had it since adolescence. He is now 35 years old and with his hair gone you can simply see how powerfully muscular he is. Being a hairless chimpanzee hasn't stopped him from anything, rather the opposite as he's the alpha male and rules his habitat! What dо you think about this video?

Wild Deer Casually Stroll Through Residential Neighborhood 1m01s

Wild Deer Casually Stroll Through Residential Neighborhood

Although we would like to believe so, there is no real boundary from where the wilderness ends and our concrete jungle begins. The ecosystems don’t work that way. The constant expansion of our ecosystem is barging in on the millions of other ecosystems governed by wild animals, and we are bound to cross paths one way or another. We, humans, often forget that we were once part of that wilderness. We roamed the Earth picking fruits and preyed on smaller animals in order to survive. We knew when to run and when to attack, when to wait and where to mark our territory. We knew that there was only one rule in the wilderness - prey, or be preyed upon. Things have changed a lot since then. We have established cities where we build housing out of artificial materials. We bend nature to make our civilizations work, we slash through it with asphalt, connecting our homes. We have upped the scale when it comes to production, creating more and more and even more until we don’t even know if it’s enough. We like things in positive numbers, never minding the surplus of food we gather that goes to waste or the surplus of animals we hunt and they eventually go extinct. We have become the ultimate consumer, consuming the homes and lives of the other organisms sharing this wonderful planet with us. One of the animals that defies our megalomaniacal tendencies is the deer. It seems that no matter how much we expand, it is always there to come knocking at our doors, reminding us that we’ve stepped the border and this is their land, not ours, that we need to take a step back because the wilderness is getting crowded. The roads that crisscross the nature in which deer live are a serious threat to their wellbeing, as well as the wellbeing of the drivers that may come into the deer’s path. Deer are known as being one of, if not the most timid creatures on the face of this planet. If you ever wanted to approach one in the wild, somewhere in a forest or on a plain, the animal would run off, never to be seen again. They trust practically no one, since they have so many predators out there. However, in recent years, there have been accounts where wild deer would actually approach a human and stay long enough for at least one photo, if not an entire video. We know of one instance when a wild deer actually befriended a deer hunter, no less! The video at the top of the page explores another situation when while driving up their street, the people that made the video managed to come across a large group of deer exploring the neighborhood. So cool! Watch! There is an entire hear of deer exploring the neighborhood. even a little one can be seen hopping along with mom checking out the grass growing on the well-trimmed lawns. They are not even a bit afraid of the passing car, on the contrary, one deer even nears it as if to check who is driving inside. The spectacle is so odd that at one point the lady shooting the video says: “Let’s get out of here. Wow!” They look like humans are encroaching their habitat and they have come to an official visit to announce this can be no longer tolerated. And you know what? They would be right. What do you think about this video? Make sure you tell us more in the comments down below. If you like what you see, don’t forget to share it with others who might like it as well. It just might be the highlight of their day! Enjoy!

Camera dropped overboard records large fish with embedded object1m06s

Camera dropped overboard records large fish with embedded object

A GoPro tied to a chunk of wood was dropped overboard from a canoe in a remote lake in Northern Ontario. The camera was tied to the wood in an effort to ensure that it would float if it fell overboard while the owner was fishing. The large battery pack proved to be too heavy, however and the camera slowly sank to the bottom, bounced along and became stuck on a log and submerged tree. The camera was running and the wood tied to it provided enough buoyancy to keep the camera leveled while it recorded the action below the waves. Although this lake is quite deep, the camera becomes snagged and does not slide along the sloping rock face beyond a depth of about 15 feet. What is recorded is the eerie green surroundings at the start of a deep drop-off. Algae and silt cling to the rock and log and provide us with a fascinating, and slightly creepy view. Large bass swim around the submerged tree and they glide past the camera several times while it runs on. One large bass makes a slow pass and looks directly at the camera, revealing a white rubber lure hooked on the right side of his mouth. He doesn't seem very affected by the attachment, but what is interesting is that it must be a lure from last year. This is a largemouth bass and fishing season for this species had not yet opened when this video was captured. It is very unlikely that the lure became lodged in his mouth this year. It is probably from last season. If this is true, it shows that stainless steel fishing hooks do not rot or rust quickly, as many fishermen believe. The idea that the fish has enzymes that will corrode a hook is a widespread myth. It has been proven completely false. This video seems to disprove the myth. What it looks like is a rubber worm or grub lure. Luckily, it does not seem large enough to interfere with its ability to get food, and it seems that it is not likely to snag on anything and trap the fish. But the hook would certainly be irritating. It would also be problematic if lodged in the throat or if it were bigger. This is an indication that anglers should be as careful as possible to avoid hooking fish and leaving them with a lure attached. The video also provides a very interesting view of life beneath the surface of your local lake.

Killer Whale Hits Stingray Hard With Its Tail23s

Killer Whale Hits Stingray Hard With Its Tail

There’s so little we know of our planet, and naturally it makes us curious as to what else is out there. This thirst for knowledge makes us push our boundaries and reach for the unknown. So far we’ve been able to see almost everything that’s above ground but there are many unimaginable things lurking in the water’s depths and the insides of our mysterious planet. We are reaching for the stars, but we know only a few percents of what the ocean waters hold. There have been many expeditions in the darkest parts of the sea, but we have yet to reach the bottom of the abyss. We have gone down to 35,858 feet below the sea’s surface, and if we ever want to go deeper and reach the ground, we would have to travel even further down inside the Mariana Trench under the Pacific Ocean, swimming down the Challenger Deep, the deepest section of the trench. The expeditions thus far have proven to be very fruitful, bringing knowledge of life in complete darkness in excruciating conditions. Just imagine what the waters hold even further down! We’ve said it once and we’ll say it again - the deep dark waters of the ocean are filled with wonders. We know so little of what is really hiding in its depths, it sometimes even scares us. What’s not to be afraid of, right? We see all sorts of movies about gargantuan sea creatures lurking in the black abyss, waiting for the right time to float up to the surface, we hear campfire stories of sailors lost at sea because of unknown forces. Even if we don’t believe in the supernatural, the fact is that the water hides some of the greatest predators that ever lived. From sharks the size of a five story building, to the tiniest poisonous jellyfish, it really takes courage to feel completely safe inside the water. We have yet to fully comprehend how life functions in the utter depths. We know that the lower you go the harsher the environment becomes and marine life must have developed coping mechanisms to survive the pressure, the lack of sunlight and the scarcity of food. It is not very often that we see deep sea life travel to the shallow waters. It’s most likely because of the size of these marine beasts but also because of the temperature difference. This makes the shallow parts of the oceans safer for us to swim in, even though this footage makes us question this conclusion completely. Killer whales are highly intelligent and very dangerous to anything that crosses their path. They are the world's largest predator and have been known to kill for the sport of it. They usually travel in numbers and hunt fish and bigger marine life . They are the ultimate hunter because they are always hunting but never hunted. Check out this tense footage of a transient orca completely stunning a pelagic stingray with a strong tail slap in the open waters of Baja. Nature can be brutal! What do you think about this video?

Nature shows its unforgiving side with savage battle for survival1m04s

Nature shows its unforgiving side with savage battle for survival

When most of us hear the word "nature", we think of a peaceful walk in the forest or an encounter with a woodland creature that allows us close enough to get a good view. We might think of a meadow or a beautiful view that is unspoiled by human development. We are so accustomed to being at the top of the food chain that we rarely have to even give a thought to our own survival. Humans easily forget that the silence and splendor comes with an equal measure of danger and fear for almost all creatures. The web of life is complicated and almost all animals are predators in one situation and prey in another. Very few creatures are immune from this and the most capable and feared predator can become the hunted in a split second. The insect world is a perfect example of this delicate balance and switching tide. Insects have developed incredibly effective defense mechanisms and repeatedly demonstrate that size and strength are not the only factors in who will eat who. When insects of different species meet, it is almost always a battle for life and death. These battles happen at our feet or in the air around us constantly, even though we are often unaware of it. Wasps are formidable predators with a shell that acts as armor, protecting it from bites and stings from many creatures. They are strong fliers and fierce in nature, famous for being able to fend off attackers many times their size. Sharp stingers deliver a potent venom that will deter large animals and paralyze smaller ones. They often eat spiders and insects many times their size. In a group, they reign terror on any animal foolish enough or unlucky enough to come too close to their nests. But this doesn't mean they can let their guard down. In this video, a wasp has set down on a sandy beach to get some water or perhaps to investigate the possibility of a meal. He doesn't see the first ant coming in what will be its final moments. The ant, known for being one of the most powerful creatures on earth for their size, also has a powerful toxin that it uses for defence and for hunting. It rushes the wasp and bites a leg, releasing formic acid and a few other toxins. The wasp is affected quickly by the first bite, but would survive if it took flight immediately. Instead, it turns on its attacker and begins probing with its stinger. The ant is agile and keeps moving in on the wasp to bite and flee, returning every few seconds for another round. It drops microscopic amounts of the formic acid on the ground around the wasp which acts as a chemical messenger for any other ants in the area. The acid excites any ant within range and they also join the battle, sensing food or a predator. They can spray the formic acid from their mandibles or they can bite sensitive areas such as legs and antennae. Before the wasp knows it, the venom has left it disoriented and weakened. It slows down, but it is furious and determined to sting anything it can find. Ants now bite the underside of the wasp and hang on, knowing that only the jaws and stinger present a serious threat. More formic acid is injected with each bite and the wasp knows it is in serious trouble. Over a few minutes, the savage battle continues, but the wasp is becoming less coordinated and is moving more slowly each second. The ants must know that time is on their side and they wait between bites for the wasp to lose its fight. When it rolls over on its side almost completely stops moving, we see the unparalleled power of a solitary ant as it takes hold of the large wasp and begins to drag it towards its nest. Able to lift objects fifty times their size, an ant is unmatched for sheer strength. This mighty wasp, used to being a top predator in the insect world has had the tables turned by a few creatures that are much smaller. For the ant though, the fight is not over. Before reaching the nest, it will have to battle other creatures for its prize, including ants from other colonies. Even surviving the journey is no certainty for the ant. Nature can be vicious and unforgiving, with harsh consequences for any creature that lets its guard down.

Grizzly Casually Passes By Tourists In The Woods53s

Grizzly Casually Passes By Tourists In The Woods

A hiker kept his minds about him after he and two of his companions experienced a mountain bear on their trail in western Canada. An Australian couple, Dale and Jessica Boshoff, ran climbing with their Canadian companion in Canmore, Alberta. They had been on the trail for only five minutes when they saw the grizzly stumbling toward them on the trail. Dale Boshoff said it took a while for it to soak in that it was extremely a bear. He said they all started going down and conversing with the bear in a quiet voice. The bear made a circle around the explorers and came back to the trail. Untamed life specialists said it was a decent case of how to deal with a wild bear. They tried to avoid panicking, remained together as a gathering and were set up to utilize hold up under splash. A couple going by from Australia will return home with a stunning story — and the video to demonstrate it — after they had a nearby experience with a wild bear while climbing a month ago on East End of Rundle, a well-known course close Canmore, Alta., around 100 kilometers west of Calgary. "Jordan's shoelace came undone so we stopped and Dale looked up and saw the bear," said Jessica. "He sort of looked at it and he was like, 'What is that? It's a bear,' then he said, 'No, surely it can't be a bear,' and it took a couple of seconds for him to process. Then he just said 'Guys,' and I could tell in his voice that he was serious, so we looked up and saw the bear right in front of us, and then got behind Dale because he had the bear spray." The group moved gradually far from the creature to give it some space and it was by then Dale hauled out his telephone and began recording. The bear wanders around the gathering and back onto the trail around 20 meters underneath them, at that point moves out of view. "Keep going, that's a good boy , keep going," Dale says before letting out a full breath as the video closes. For Dale, it was a rare affair. "He wasn't hinting at any hostility, I sort of just got the inclination he needed to get around us. We were in his direction," he said. How would you react if you had so close encounter with a bear? Seeing a bear in the wild is an extraordinary treat for any guest to a national stop. While it is an energizing minute, recall that bears in national parks are wild and can be risky. Their conduct is some of the time eccentric. Albeit uncommon, assaults on people have happened. On the off chance that you experience a bear on the trail, or in your campground, stop what you are doing and assess the circumstance. Distinguish yourself by talking in a quiet, assuaging tone. Step back gradually, ideally toward the path you came. Walk, don't run, and watch out for the bear so you can perceive how it will respond.

Dazzling golden target tortoise beetle from Ecuador

Tortoise beetles owe their name to the carapace under which they can find shelter like a tortoise, with the difference that their carapace can open for flight. This species (Charidotis venusta) with a golden ring that looks like a target is from the Amazon rainforest of Ecuador.

Peek inside active honeybee hive as it starts to grow1m10s

Peek inside active honeybee hive as it starts to grow

Honeybees are among the best pollinators in the world. They spend their days busily gathering pollen from plants and carrying it back to the hive to produce honey. Although their intent is to store honey to feed the queen, the larvae of new bees, and to act as their food source throughout the winter, a percentage of their honey becomes food for humans. Without honeybees to pollinate flowers, crops, and other plants, plant life on earth would not survive long and our whole ecosystem would suffer. We are only now starting to appreciate how crucial their survival is to our own survival. This video shows the birth of a new hive. Environmentalists, gardeners, and hobbyists are starting to raise bees for the obvious benefits of having a bee population near their plants and also as a way of contributing to the health of our planet. Kristy has done some research and has bought a Warre hive made out of cedar. Construction is precise and the bees will be very particular about their home. The central figure of any hive is the queen bee. This hive has a new queen, who is housed in a small plastic cage for two days. The worker and drone bees are attracted to her scent and they have spent a full day in a box with her. The confined space allows them to become used to her pheromones. During this time they will accept her as their queen and they will be committed to protecting and living with her. The queen's capsule is placed in the center of the hive and the box of bees are emptied into the hive with her. The few bees that take flight during this time will not venture far, as they are now strongly attracted by her scent. The entrance to her capsule is plugged with candy and the bees will eat through this to free her. By this time, they will have bonded and begun the work needed inside the hive. For two full days they work furiously to produce walls and cells made of beeswax. It is here that they will store their honey. Meanwhile, the queen lays up to 2,000 eggs per day. Most of these will be fertilized and will grow into female worker bees. The unfertilized eggs will become drones. Surprisingly, queens do not mate with males from their own hive. They fly to other colonies, mate and return. They can lay eggs for many weeks, having stored sperm for egg producing over time. A bees lifespan is very short. In summer, it may be as few as six weeks. The colony will survive over the winter. They consume their honey store to help them produce body heat to keep their hive at a constant temperature. They cluster around the queen to protect her from the cold. Bee hives are a great source of satisfaction for those wishing to help the environment. As a bonus, they are also a source of delicious honey.

Metalmark Moth mimics jumping spider predator28s

Metalmark Moth mimics jumping spider predator

With their raised wings and the eye-like pattern, metalmark moths look like jumping spiders, which prey on small insects, such as moths. Even their jerky leaps resemble that of a jumping spider. Apparently this gives them an advantage in the struggle for survival because jumping spiders mistake them as fellows and not recognize them as prey. This is a rare example of predator mimicry.

Mama Bear And Cubs Stroll Through Residential Neighborhood32s

Mama Bear And Cubs Stroll Through Residential Neighborhood

A curious footage has emerged of a woman having a close encounter with a bear family crossing the road in a residential neighborhood. While on her way home, this woman captures footage of a mother bear and her cubs seeking some shade during a hot summer day. So cool! This woman was driving around her neighborhood when she noticed a momma bear with two cubs coming out of the woods crossing the road in front of her car. She stopped and let them cross the road, naturally taking out her phone and recording the unusual encounter, and we are glad she did! What a sight! Local bears are known for trashing people’s yards making a mess in a search for food. Bears appearing in families' yards and homes is not an unusual sight. It doesn't happen very often, but when it does, it can be really scary! Reportedly, there are numerous examples of people witnessing a bear casually taking a stroll through their local neighbourhood . Sometimes they are blocking the road, other times they move across the neighborhood street and go into the nearby woods. Bears around people can be a real problem in case they become violent and start attacking property and residents. However, these creatures can be quite friendly too! Take for example this curious video of a bear cub running across a golf course just to give golfers a hug , or perhaps give him some golfing tips. Golfers were in for quite the surprise when they spotted a black bear cub on the green, going towards them. Apparently, the little bear was lonely and decided to play a little golf with these humans! These two men were hoping for a nice, quiet game of golf, but the bear cub had another plan for their afternoon. Footage shows, a sweet, little bear cub walking across the golf field out of pure curiosity. It approaches one of the men and investigates him in detail by sniffing him from head to toe. It is good that the man acted so peacefully and didn’t scare the bear away, so that the other man was able to capture this adorable clip! Talking calmly while not moving a muscle, the man allows the curious cub to investigate his body completely, and in one point the animal even stands on its hind legs and rests its front paws on the man, locking hands for a quick hug! Is this the friendliest bear you have seen or what?! Cuteness overload! We all know how bears can get around trash cans and picnic baskets. You can go right ahead and blame Yogi the Bear for this ridiculous stereotype. Bears are opportunistic feeders, meaning they would like to spend the least amount of energy rummaging for their next meal, so they will eat everything they sniff out to be appetizing. However, usually that means that someone has to pick up their trash every morning. A curious footage has emerged of a bear momma trying to cross the street at a residential neighborhood , much to people’s amusement and fear. Either way it sure is an incredible video! This lady was in for quite the surprise when she spotted a bear family walking in front of her car. To her surprise, the bears weren’t violent and didn’t attack her car, they only minded their own business, and were soon off of the road, not obstructing woman’s path. What would you have done in a situation like this? Would you wait for the bears to cross the road, or would you drive your car in the reverse and get away from them, as far as possible? We are really glad that this woman decided to stay calm and record the mom and her cubs . What an unusual encounter!

Tiny bear cub scrambles to keep up with mom and brother29s

Tiny bear cub scrambles to keep up with mom and brother

Seeing a wild animals is always a possibility on a country drive, especially in cottage country. This motorist was driving home from the cottage when he made the decision to turn onto a quieter road instead of the main route. Immediately after making the corner, he knew that his decision had been a good one. In the distance, a large, black bear ambled across the road with a tiny cub in tow. They wasted no time getting across the road and into the forest. The motorist decided to pull over and have a cautious look to see if he could see where the bears were. Perhaps he could even get a picture of them if they hadn't gone deep into the bushes. He pulled over on the shoulder and got out of the car. A mama bear is a formidable animal and not one to approach, especially in the early summer when they are likely to be protective of their cubs. The motorist knew not to venture past the back of the car, for safety's sake. He could hear the two bears in the woods, walking slowly, just inside the treeline. He decided to turn the car around and wait on the far shoulder with the engine off, to see if they peeked out of the trees. With the dash cam running and the car now facing the other way where the bears had crossed, our driver saw a pair of little black ears appear in the grass in front of him. A second furry little cub had been with the mother bear but it had not kept up as they crossed the road. Now it cautiously stuck its face out of the long grass and looked around. It ran out to the edge of the road, looked around, sniffed the air and then finally decided that it could run across the road to join its family. Black bears are highly intelligent and very cautious. Even young black bears have a healthy amount of reluctance to spend time out in the open. They generally avoid humans whenever possible and they are almost always harmless if we keep a safe distance and don't surprise them or threaten them. It was a treat to see this little family making their way along, but several things are obvious from this experience. Had the motorist made the mistake of wandering far from the car, he could have unknowingly been between the mother bear and her cub. Her reason for staying at the edge of the woods was obviously that she was waiting for him. Standing out in the open, or making noise of any kind could have complicated their attempts to meet up on the other side of the road and could possibly have resulted in the bear being defensive. When watching wildlife it is always best to be still and quiet and to remain in your vehicle.

Grey Seal Gets Photobombed By Harbor Porpoise29s

Grey Seal Gets Photobombed By Harbor Porpoise

In the Gulf of Saint Lawrence, you can see grey seals from the beach almost every day. But what you don't usually see is a dolphin in the background casually swimming along! What a lovely surprise! The silly seal seems oblivious to the presence of the porpoise, basking in the June sun, while the porpoise shows up just a few times while breaking on camera. Who knows, maybe the dolphin was equally as oblivious to the presence of the camera. The Gulf of Saint Lawrence is the outlet of the North American Great Lakes via the Saint Lawrence River into the Atlantic Ocean. The gulf is a semi-enclosed sea, covering an area of about 87,000 square miles and containing about 8,300 cubic miles of water, which results in an average depth of 499 feet. Did you know that porpoises are also called “mereswine”? The reason behind it is actually pretty cool. “Porpoise” comes from the french “pourpois”, which in term comes from the Medieval Latin “porcopiscus”, a compound of “porcus”, meaning pig, and “piscus”, meaning fish. In Classical latin the are also called “ porculus marinus”, probably because of the fancied resemblance of the porpoise’s snout to that of a pig. The sound the make when breathing also resembles a pig snort. Porpoises keep close quarters near the polar regions, normally near the coast. One of the smallest marine mammals, the harbor porpoise stays close to coastal areas or river estuaries, and as such, is the most familiar porpoise to whale watchers. The harbour porpoise species is common in colder coastal waters of the North Atlantic, North Pacific and the Black Sea. The populations in these regions are not constant and are classified as separate subspecies. According to recent genetic evidence, the harbour porpoise population structure may be more complex, and they should be reclassified. In the Atlantic, harbour porpoises may be present in a curved band of water running from the coast of West Africa to the coasts of Spain, France, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Scandinavia, Iceland, Greenland, Nova Scotia and Newfoundland and the eastern seaboard of the United States. The population in the Baltic Sea is limited in winter due to sea freezing, and is most common in the southwest parts of the sea. There is another band in the Pacific Ocean running from the Sea of Japan, Vladivostok, the Bering Strait, Alaska, British Columbia, and California. The harbor porpoise is not considered threatened, as their numbers reach hundreds of thousands. However, static fishing techniques such as gill and tangle nets, overfishing, marine and noise pollution, as well as climate change play a big factor in the conservation of this species. Bycatch in bottom-set gill nets is considered the main mortality factor caused by man for these porpoises. Numbers suggest that several thousand individuals die each year as incidental bycatch. Recently, porpoise-scaring devices, also known as pingers, have been developed to keep porpoises away from these nets. Studies have shown that they present as very effective in reducing entanglement.

Brave Filmer Takes An Up-Close Footage Of An Attacking Great White Shark9s

Brave Filmer Takes An Up-Close Footage Of An Attacking Great White Shark

Sharks have the most frightening-looking jaws in the animal kingdom. There is a large number of teeth packed on them, an unimaginable number of about 5 to 15 thousand! It is interesting that their teeth are actually modified scales, evolved in time into a tooth looking formation consisting of dentin and having small roots. Shark teeth are arranged in several rows and in a staggered order. The most rear row of teeth located in the depth of the shark’s mouth and are covered with a thin mucous layer. If the shark loses any of the front teeth, then the next row behind it is pushed forward and stands in the place of the lost tooth. This is a continuous process of “teeth recycling” in time - the whole set of teeth is replaced eventually. The power of the shark's jaws is simply astonishing. And remember, they are made of only cartilage. Cartilage, unlike bone, is not as strong. Sharks spare their jaws, avoiding biting the bones of victims. But, if the teeth of the shark are not so famous for their durability, then they are as perfect as the ideal instruments of murder. Numerous, sharp as a razor, they are updated all shark life. This is why the image propelled in all the sequels of the movie “ Jaws ” will forever awaken that primordial fear in the spectator. Well, the filmer in the video on the top of the page was not that squeamish. He bravely set off just to make a short video of a Great White’s jaws! Anthony Kobrowisky from Sea Candy Media was filming off the shark cage diving boat that he worked on in Gansbaai, South Africa. The shark breached extremely close to his camera, allowing him to capture the actual movement and power of the large great white shark's jaws and teeth. Please note that no one was in danger while filming this clip. Modern white sharks lead a predominantly isolated way of life. Adult individuals can be found not only in the waters of the open ocean but also near the shoreline, where people are most likely to be found, in fact. As a rule, the shark tries to keep as close as possible to the surface and prefers warm or moderately warm ocean waters. This shark has large, powerful jaws equipped with one to two rows of very large and wide, triangular teeth. All teeth have jagged edges. These muscular jaws enable the water predator to bite off not only cartilaginous tissues without too much effort but also large enough bones of their prey. The filmer was just so darn lucky! All of you who live near or visit shark-infested waters must remember that hungry white sharks are not particularly picky in choosing food and this is why videos like the one you had the chance to view at the top of the page are chilling but not completely showing unexpected events.
