Stingrays collide with woman after almost being stepped on 36s

Stingrays collide with woman after almost being stepped on

Stingray City is a series of shallow sandbars found in the North Sound of Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands. It is a tourist attraction, where southern stingrays are found in abundance and visitors can pet and interact with the animals. Trying to be careful not to step on the many stingrays swimming all around was a concern, but they are faster than a moving foot it seems. The tour operators bring along with them pails of chunked-up squid meat, which they allow the tourists to dispense by hand to the animals, thus attracting dozens of the creatures to the feeding spot. Another concern was the dreaded barb that everyone worries about being stabbed by, which caused the death of Steve Irwin of the show Crocodile Hunter, but in reality these southern stingrays are very safe to be among.There are 2 sandbars, one which is in the shallows and the other one which is deeper and where it is possible to scuba dive with stingrays. The sandbar is just inside a natural channel that passes through the barrier reef and consists of a string of sandbars crossing the North Sound from Morgan Harbour to Rum Point. The southern stingray has a flat, diamond-shaped disc, with a mud brown, olive, and grey dorsal surface and white underbelly (ventral surface). The barb on its tail is serrated and covered in a venomous mucous, used for self-defense. The wing-like pectoral fins of the stingrays,are used to propel the stingray across the ocean bottom. The spines on the tail are not fatal to humans, but are incredibly painful if stepped on. The animals eyes are situated on top of the head along with small openings called spiracles. The location of the spiracles enables the stingray to take in water whilst lying on the seabed, or when partially buried in sediment. Water enters the spiracles and leaves through the gill openings, bypassing the mouth which is on the underside. Female stingrays can grow to a disc width of 150 cm( 5 feet), while the much smaller male stingrays generally reach a maximum size at 67 cm (26 inches). While walking around and swimming on these sandbars, Elsa ,the woman in the blue shorts, said “it was kind of creepy touching them and having them suck up onto your hand and body, but it was amazing”. All the visitors in the group had a great day and an incredible experience meeting these little creatures. when feeding the stingrays, it was explained to keep your hand flat and they would suck the squid chunks right off your hand.” if you have a thumb up, they may suck it into their mouth and chomp you”. Of course, when Brent was feeding one, his thumb did end up getting “ kind of squashed” as he explained it as the animals have what seems to be a toothless gummy mouth. If on Grand Cayman and love the water and wildlife make sure you take in this tour, it is incredible

How many Bald Eagles can you fit in a tree 1m02s

How many Bald Eagles can you fit in a tree

How many bald eagles can you fit in a tree? Well it seems that in areas of great supply of food, they are quite comfortable being around many of their own. This location near Vancouver British Columbia ,and near a land fill, hence the good supply of rodents it is assumed, is home to a very large number of these beautiful birds. When driving along the highway, which you see in the video Brent noticed “there were eagles everywhere, i could not believe how many were in the trees so i had to stop and collect some footage”. The bald eagle is an opportunistic carnivore with the capacity to consume a great variety of prey. Throughout their range, fish often comprise the majority of the eagle's diet. In 20 food habit studies across the species' range, fish comprised 56% of the diet of nesting eagles, birds 28%, mammals 14% and other prey 2%. It would seem in this area, the numbers of mammals consumed might be higher than the 14%. The bald eagle's natural range covers most of North America, including most of Canada, all of the continental United States, and northern Mexico. Bald eagles will also congregate in certain locations in winter. From November until February, one to two thousand birds winter in Squamish, British Columbia, about halfway between Vancouver and Whistler. The birds primarily gather along the Squamish and Cheakamus Rivers, attracted by the salmon spawning in the area. The eagles tend to prefer tall coniferous trees around 60 feet for perching, roosting and nesting giving them superior visability of the area. When travelling their area, the bald eagle is a powerful flier, reaching speeds of 56–70 km/h (35–43 mph) when gliding and flapping, and about 48 km/h (30 mph) while carrying a catch. Its dive speed is between 120–160 km/h (75–99 mph) but rarely dives straight vertically. The bald eagle has a body length of 70–102 cm (28–40 in). Typical wingspan is between 1.8 and 2.3 m (5.9 and 7.5 ft) and normally weigh between 3 and 6.3 kg (6.6 and 13.9 lb). Females are about 25% larger than males, averaging 5.6 kg (12 lb), and against the males' average weight of 4.1 kg (9.0 lb). The mature eagles of 4 years of age are the white headed and white tailed ones while the plumage of the immature is a dark brown overlaid with messy white streaking. Bald eagles are sexually mature at four or five years of age. When they are old enough to breed, they often return to the area where they were born. It is thought that bald eagles mate for life. However, if one member of a pair dies or disappears, the survivor will choose a new mate. A pair which has repeatedly failed in breeding attempts may split and look for new mates. Bald eagle courtship involves elaborate, spectacular calls and flight displays. The flight includes swoops, chases, and cartwheels, in which they fly high, lock talons, and free fall, separating just before hitting the ground. This would be such an amazing display to witness. Bald eagles are early breeders: unlike other raptors and nest building or reinforcing is often by mid-February, egg laying is often late February and incubation is usually mid-March and early May. Eggs hatch from mid April to early May, and the young fledge late June to early July. “We will definately be watching for those little youngsters to be out learning to fly” Brent mentioned. What an amazing area British Columbia is, and to have all this beauty and incredible birds so close is like nothing else. Brent said he will definately be coaxing his wife out more often to watch these beautiful birds, they are amazing!

Diving with the massive creatures of the ocean compilation 1m17s

Diving with the massive creatures of the ocean compilation

Divers from around the world will attest that diving with the larger animals in our seas is on their bucket list or “was an incredible experience”. Stuart from Vancouver British Columbia Canada has had an incredible year of doing just that, diving with the monsters of the ocean. Stuart ventured out to Guadalupe Island aboard a live aboard diving charter yacht and had the incredible experience of not only seeing Great White sharks in the wild, but getting down into the water with them. Guadalupe Island is a volcanic island located 241 kilometres (150 mi) off the west coast of Mexico's Baja California Peninsula and some 400 kilometres (250 mi) southwest of the city of Ensenada in the state of Baja California , in the Pacific Ocean. You will see in the video, they are massive animals, yet so graceful moving about their domain. You can also see some have some nasty scars, these are mainly on the females caused by the males during mating season. Stuart’s next adventure was out to the Islands of Socorro, once again aboard a live aboard diving yacht as these Islands in the Revillagigedo Islands, a Mexican possession lying some 600 kilometres (370 mi) off the country's western coast. Here is where all the divers had the opportunity to make some amazing memories. From Stuart’s footage you can see just some of these memories, incredibly massive whale sharks over 40 feet long that are filter feeders, meaning It feeds on plankton including copepods, krill, fish eggs, Christmas Island red crab larvae and small nektonic life, such as small squid or fish. It also feeds on clouds of eggs during mass spawning of fish and corals. Other monsters Stuart saw are the Giant Manta Rays which are the largest rays in the world. The giant oceanic manta ray can grow to a disc size of up to 7 m (23 ft) across with a weight of about 1,350 kg (2,980 lb) but average size commonly observed is 4.5 m (15 ft).These Giant Mantas are also filter feeders and consume large quantities of zooplankton in the form of shrimp, krill, and planktonic crabs. An individual manta may eat about 13% of its body weight each week. When foraging, it usually swims slowly around its prey, herding the planktonic creatures into a tight group before speeding through the bunched-up organisms with its mouth open wide. Stuart sure did get some incredible footage during these trips allowing all of us to get into the world of the ocean below the waves. How cool would this be to do yourself? It is all possible !!!

Record Breaking Goal Scorer 1m05s

Record Breaking Goal Scorer

February 9, 2018 was a record breaking day for the Vancouver Giants hockey club and #7 Ty Ronning their lead scorer. The Vancouver Giants are a major junior ice hockey team playing in the Western Hockey League (WHL). Inaugurated in 2001–02, the Giants have won one President's Cup (now known as the Ed Chynoweth Cup) in 2006 and one Memorial Cup in 2007 in their 16-season history. Their home rink was the Pacific Coliseum in Vancouver, British Columbia, an arena previously used by the National Hockey League (NHL)'s Vancouver Canucks. Effective with the 2016–17 season, the team relocated to the Langley Events Centre in the Township of Langley a suburb of Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. This 2017/18 season has been a tremendous season for the franchise, coming back after a number of struggling season. Their stats thus far are 54 games played, 29 wins and 17 losses . The game within this video was an incredible, record breaking game for one player, #7 Ty Ronning. Tonight in overtime @TyRonning7 etched himself into the top of the Giants history books! His 49th goal of the season was the overtime winner. He’s now the all-time single season goal scoring record holder of the Vancouver Giants . If the last name Ronning sounds familiar, his father Cliff Ronning was selected by the St. Louis Blues in the seventh round of the 1984 NHL Entry Draft, 134th overall. During an NHL career that spanned 18 years, Ronning played for the Blues, Vancouver Canucks, Phoenix Coyotes, Nashville Predators, Los Angeles Kings, Minnesota Wild and New York Islanders. Prior to being drafted, he played in the Western Hockey League for the New Westminster Bruins, displaying the same excellent scoring touch. In 1983–84, Ronning's draft year, he posted 136 points in 71 games, earning the Jim Piggott Memorial Trophy as the league's rookie of the year. Due to his small stature Cliff Ronning was 5'8",he was not drafted until the seventh round, when the St. Louis Blues picked him 134th overall. Ty Ronning, drafted in 2016 by the New York Rangers although also not until the 7th round as his father, Ty has many great things going for him and his future in professional NHL hockey. Ty’s stats so far are as follow, 53 games played,49 goals, 19 assists for a total of 68 points. At this rate, it appears Ty may surpass 60 goals this season, making for a very tough record to be broken in the future. Way to go Ty, congratulations !!!

Giant Manta Rays Fly Among Divers Like Jet Fighters1m30s

Giant Manta Rays Fly Among Divers Like Jet Fighters

This is the incredible moment when one adventurous videographer captured giant pacific mantas on camera, as he swam near Socorro Island. Socorro Island is a small volcanic island in the Revillagigedo Islands approximately 370 miles off the west coast of Mexico. Is swimming with giant manta rays on your bucket list yet? Giant manta rays are believed to be the most majestic creatures in the ocean. They swim by moving their wing-like pectoral fins, which can grow up to 23 foot wide, but usually average about 16 feet. Footage shows us the beautiful and enchanting moment divers caught sight of gigantic manta rays. Nearing twenty feet across, these giant manta rays soar like eagles amongst the divers’ bubbles, with such an incredible grace as though they are putting on a show. The rays pass within inches of the camera, as if they approach to say ‘Welcome to my world’. There is 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 have been able to see almost everything that’s above ground but there are many wonders lurking in the water’s depths and the inside 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. 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! It seems that a lot of people want to learn more and more about marine life, if diving expeditions are anything to go by. We hear of countless interactions between divers and marine giants and it all sounds so magnificent.

Cat Punches Out Puppy 29s

Cat Punches Out Puppy

With a new pet welcomed into a home, there is always a power struggle for dominance. Pete and Vivian had brought home a new little lab/husky puppy names Carley. As any pet owner knows, sometimes cats can be very controlling and dominant and just down right grumpy!! Along with Carley came a new toy, this long and fun play tunnel. When the cat of the house Abby, the GRUMPY CAT, discovered the new tunnel she seemed to take it on as her own and started to guard it like a troll guards his bridge. Carley the cutest puppy ever kept on trying to enjoy the tunnel but as seen here, Abby did not want to allow the pup access.... how mean ! Also as us pet owners know, dogs are suppose to not like cats and generally stand up for their rights;-) but Carley was not aware of these characteristics yet, so she kept trying to get into the tunnel. Time after time, Carley received blows to the head, uppercuts to the chin ,and even bites to her face . She did not give up and proved that she will be one tough pupper. "When it comes to a new toy in the play area, it is fair game for everyone". I believe it is safe to say that is exactly what the puppy Carley was thinking the whole time she was taking a beating. Good on ya Carley, persevere little girl.

Cat teases puppy with her flicking tail, watch the outcome

Carley is the new kid on the block in Pete and Vivian's house. She is a lab/husky cross and absolutely adorable. Abby the kitty definately rules the roost here and makes sure that Carley knows it, in a very gentle way. Carley just wants to play all the time and it appears her instincts have not told her that she is not suppose to like cats... which is great in a two dog and one cat household. With Abby's tail flicking like a little snake, Carley moves in for a closer look. She decided that cute little tail might be fun to play with and moves in for a sniff and touch but Abby isn't thinking the same and gives her a little nudge to back off a bit. Feeling slightly cornered in the narrow hallway, Abby the kitty starts to move around to maintain control of this situation. In the end Carley sits back, relaxes and has a lay down awaiting Abby to come back and play. How adorable puppies and kitties can be when they get along !!

Divers get an amazing surprise when school of hammerhead sharks approach

On a recent scuba diving adventure to the Socorro Islands in Mexico, Stuart our videographer had the amazing chance to dive with a number of huge sea animals. After a long boat ride of approximately 24 hours aboard a live-aboard diving vessel the group arrived to the Socorro Islands. Lying some 370 miles off the country's western coast ,Socorro is 10.25 by 7.15 miles with an area of 51 square miles. It is the largest of the four islands of the Revillagigedo Archipelago. There are numerous dive locations within these islands and the footage here was taken at a site called Roca Partida near 120 feet deep . Roca Partida “ Split Rock” ranks as the smallest of the four Revillagigedo Islands, part of the Free and Sovereign State of Colima in Mexico. This uninhabited island encompasses an extremely small area, and many divers rank it among the most beautiful in Mexico. Divers must obtain permits from the Mexican Armed Forces to enter into this military zone. at a very small 300 feet long and 26 feet wide with the twin peaks being approximately 25 feet high above the sea. While searching this area for the sharks ,giant mantas and whale sharks that visit this location, Stuart and his dive buddy were lucky enough to take in the amazing site of a school of hammerhead sharks passing by. Hammerhead sharks range from 3.0 to 19  ft in length and weigh from 7 to 1,278.7 pounds. They are usually light gray and have a greenish tint. Their bellies are white which allows them to blend into the ocean when viewed from the bottom and sneak up on their prey. Their heads have lateral projections which give them a hammer-like shape. Hammerheads have disproportionately small mouths and seem to do a lot of bottom-hunting. They are also known to form schools during the day, sometimes in groups of over 100. In the evening, like other sharks, they become solitary hunters. What an amazing adventure for all these scuba divers, creating many life long memories.

The bog, itself, is a unique ecosystem in Pacific Rim National Park, as only a few plant species are able to survive in the acidic soil found here. The park is a scenic nature reserve of rugged Pacific Ocean coast and temperate rainforests. The 197 square mile park is divided into three areas: the West Coast Trail, the Broken Group Islands and Long Beach. Among these, the easiest to access is Long Beach, which welcomes more than a million visitors each year. Long Beach is particularly well known for its stunning scenery, picturesque terrain, and thick, moss-covered forests of Western Hemlock, Western Red Cedar and Pacific Silver Fir trees. Due to its forceful winds and severe rainfall during the winter months, the region is also a popular storm-watching destination.

Adorable Lumpsucker Fish- He Swims Like a Bumblebee 36s

Adorable Lumpsucker Fish- He Swims Like a Bumblebee

Meet the Pacific Spiny Lumpsucker. Lumpsuckers are named appropriately enough; their chubby bodies are nearly spherical with generally drab coloration and stone like patterns. The "sucker" part refers to the fish's modified pelvic fins, which have evolved into adhesive discs which they use to adhere to the kelp or materials they decide to rest on when not swimming. These PACIFIC SPINY LUMPSUCKERS generally grow to around 1 inch long, not much more . Members of this species can be found to depths of 5600 feet, quite amazing. Other than looking like swollen eyeballs… with eyeballs… lumpsuckers have some pretty strange things going on. For one, they’re pretty awful swimmers, thanks to their round bodies and tiny fins, and when disturbed they tend to flap around aimlessly in different directions. Which is not how escape generally happens. As newly hatched larvae they are surprisingly well developed, equipped with a fully functional mouth and well-developed digestive system. This allows them to begin feeding on tiny crustaceans and fish just 10 days after hatching. During the first year of their lives, these juveniles spend most of their time around algae clumps, either floating free or attaching themselves to the algae using their sucker discs. Then they’ll progress to pelagic habitats in the open ocean closer to the surface - which is kind of the opposite of what most fish tend to do. As adults, they'll spend much of the rest of their lives in the open ocean, the females ending up significantly larger than the males, and significantly less interested in parental obligations.In fact, the males pretty much do all the parenting. During breeding season, lumpsucker males and females migrate inshore to meet and spawn. The males will arrive before the females so they have enough time to prepare a suitable nest, usually in a bedrock crevice or a depression in the sea floor. Once the females arrive, carrying around 100,000 to 350,000 eggs each, they’ll deposit a batch in the nest of their choice and leave. How’s this for being a good father ?

Adorable Cock-a-chon pup is Stylin' in her new Sneakers

This adorable pup just got home from shopping with her “mom” Maria and wanted to get out and try her new shoes. Maria walks Jas daily all year round unless extreme weather keeps them inside. Jas is almost 14 years old and is a cocker spaniel/bichon frise hybrid... known as a cockachon. “And just so adorable” Maria explains. Maria and Jas live in Calgary Alberta, Canada which is approximately a 3 hour drive North of the U.S. border and 50 miles east of the Rocky Mountains. Calgary’s weather in winter can change drastically at times, from near 20 degrees below freezing to a few degrees above freezing in a matter of hours. These drastic changes are caused by warm winds known commonly as “chinook” winds. A strong föhn wind or “chinook” can make snow one foot deep almost vanish in one day. The snow partly melts and partly evaporates in the dry wind. Chinook winds have been observed to raise winter temperature, often from below −20 °C (−4 °F) to as high as 10–20 °C (50–68 °F) for a few hours or days, then temperatures plummet to their base levels. With such changes in temperature and plenty of snow and ice at times, the city treats it’s roads with various types of ice melter. One of these being salt can be very hard on a pet’s feet along with the cold. The very cold along with the salt residue on the walkways made Maria decide to dress her adorable pooch with protective footwear. Jas, unlike some pets we may have seen trying to walk with shoes on, did not even seem to mind having the fancy sneakers on her feet . What a great pet owner Maria for looking after your pup so well, she is definately styling !!

Eerie Boeing 777 Landing 48s

Eerie Boeing 777 Landing

Has any of you every thought what it looked like for a pilot landing a jetliner in low visability like cloud,fog or snow? Have you ever wondered " how do pilots see to land when it is snowing?". Well here are a few answers and some footage to show just what they do, or don't see. As you may know, commercial airliners travel under what is called "IFR" , Instrument Flight Rules. To put instrument flight rules into context, a brief overview of visual flight rules (VFR) is necessary. It is possible and fairly straightforward, in relatively clear weather conditions, to fly a plane solely by reference to outside visual cues, such as the horizon to maintain orientation, nearby buildings and terrain features for navigation, and other aircraft to maintain separation. This is known as operating the aircraft under VFR, and is the most common mode of operation for small aircraft. However, it is safe to fly VFR only when these outside references can be clearly seen from a sufficient distance; when flying through or above clouds, or in fog, rain, dust or similar low-level weather conditions, these references can be obscured. When operation of an aircraft under VFR is not safe, instrument flight rules must be used instead. A few of the main instruments used to fly IFR, which is done under strict airspace regulations, are as follow. Aside from the basic Vertical speed indicator, altitude indicator, airspeed indicator , attitude indicator and magnetic compass, the pilots use a number of electronic instruments to guide them around the skies via "airways" which are like highways in the sky. These instruments along with auto pilot settings, co-ordinate controls to keep the airplanes within their allowed routes and airspace to avoid other aircraft along the same routes. Some aircraft use GPS and VHF omni directional radio range (VOR) is a type of short-range radio navigation system for aircraft, enabling aircraft with a receiving unit to determine their position and stay on course by receiving radio signals transmitted by a network of fixed ground radio beacons. ILS (instrument landing system) in this situation in the video, along with the pilots manual flying skills is what bring this Boeing 777 safely to the runway at Toronto Pearson International Airport. Quite the skills i would say !

Diver Curiously Approaches Sleeping White Tip Reef Sharks 1m20s

Diver Curiously Approaches Sleeping White Tip Reef Sharks

When it comes down to extreme sports, diving can definitely be one of them. All sort of dangerous creatures live in the deep blue.

Pilots view Approaching Vancouver International Airport

As many know, since 911 there are no non-airline personnel allowed up in the cockpits of commercial airliners during a flight. Many of us recall back in the day, having a flight attendant take us parents and one of our children up front for a look at the cockpit. We were amazed at all the gadgets and buttons up there, how could anyone know what they were all for. For me as a parent and as a child, the amazement was looking out the front wind screen watching the world zoom by at hundred of miles per hour. This video shows us the approach into Vancouver International Airport aboard a Boeing jetliner,approaching from the North East of Vancouver. The scenery is incredible in this beautiful city in British Columbia and this view makes it the best. Enjoy !!

Westie chases racing drone all over the park

Gus is a West Highland terrier cross that loves to play and be active. In this video as you will see, Gus is quite the determines pup. At 1-1/2 Gus and his human Andy travel all over the West Coast of British Columbia Canada boating and hiking. Gus also enjoys stand up paddle boarding,kayaking and just about anything in the great out doors. Andy and Gus live on the Sunshine Coast of British Columbia, just a short ferry ride from the beautiful city of Vancouver. Working in Vancouver, Andy commutes from his home to Vancouver so on the weekends him and Gus , or "Gus Man" as Andy calls him, always take to the parks and trails for some activity. Here we see Gus doing his best to catch this racing type drone,but his little Westie legs just are not quite fast enough, be he definately is no slouch with speed. Watching this race/chase, brought a number of on lookers and definately brought out some chuckles. Good job Gus, keep it up little pooch.

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!
