Extremely rare and intelligent animal communication: Eel and grouper hunt together

Nassau Groupers are plentiful in the Caribbean and they are one of the biggest and most successful hunters on the reef. Highly intelligent, agile and powerful, they seek out and capture their prey by inhaling rapidly, sucking the smaller fish into their mouth. But smaller fish know that their best chance to avoid being eaten is to seek shelter among the crevices in the coral and sponges on the reef. Groupers know they can't fit their large heads into small holes, so they have learned to enlist the help of a creature who can. The Moray Eel is a long, slender fish that is also a top predator. It hunts mainly at night when its poor vision is less of a disadvantage. It has a keen sense of smell and a body that is designed for stealth. It glides along the coral, slithering in and out of hiding places with ease. Any fish that it encounters will have only a brief chance for escape by fleeing out into the open before it is grabbed by the eel's powerful jaws. Both of these creatures are formidable on their own, but they have learned to team up for a greatly improved hunting technique. Cooperation between two species is rare, and communication between different species is even more rare. There are many mutually beneficial relationships in the wild, but only a few examples of when it is intentional and when it is based on an understanding and communication. The grouper begins this process by finding an eel and facing it head on while it shakes its head rapidly and performs an obvious movement or "dance". The eel has long ago learned what this means and it will venture from its lair in the daytime to join the grouper. The grouper understands that it has superior eyesight and will signal the eel where the food is hiding. It uses a similar, but much slower head shaking, along with posture and an intent stare at the location where the eel needs to go. The eel will enter the crevice after the prey, which is now forced to face the eel or to venture out in the open and take its chances with the hungry grouper. The grouper may also simply follow the eel and remain ready to ambush unwary prey. This technique is at least five times as effective as either of them hunting on their own. One of the most interesting parts of this arrangement is that it is not complicated by competition for food. Both the eel and the grouper swallow their food whole, so one of them quickly gets the meal and there are no scraps left to fight for. It works out roughly equally for both so there is enough positive reward in the method to make it worth repeating. This is another demonstration of the fact that we are only starting to learn how complicated the animal kingdom really is and how intelligent animals can be. Groupers will also use this technique to signal scuba divers with spears to the fact that a lion fish is hiding in the coral. They can understand which divers are hunting and even which species they need to find. Incredibly, Nassau Groupers can even recognize a particular scuba diver who has fed them on past dives and they will greet and follow people they know.

Compilation of Slovenia's stunning waterfalls in 4K

This is a compilation of waterfalls and cascades from Slovenia. The Slap Pericnik is a two stepped waterfall within the glacial Vrata Valley, Triglav National Park, Slovenia. In winter months both waterfalls freeze completely and the water droplets sprayed against the rock face form incredible, glacier blue stalactites and stalagmites. An incredible site. The glacial water cascading over the rocks at the snowy Vintgar Gorge, Soteska Vintgar in Slovenia with its turquoise fast flowing river. Unfortunately the gorge is closed over the winter month, but you still have a great view from the entrance. A couple of cascades towards the mighty Waterfall the Slap Kozjak and then the majestic fifteen metres high Waterfall hidden away in an almost cave like setting. The lavish green Soča River Gorge, the narrow valley with steep and rocky walls nature's beauty. The turquoise water of the Soca river running through the valley. Next up the Slap Sopota and Slap Krampež not far away from the Slap Kozjak in Kobraid. Both are close together with only a 5 minute walk from each other. Located near the village of Drežnica. The so called Glijun (Izvir Glijuna) stream shows a multi-stranded waterfall called Slap Virje, near the town of Bovec in Slovenia that is more than 11 meters in height and about 19 m in width. Below, there is a stunning emerald green pool. When you get to the Log pod Mangartom road towards the mighty Mangart saddle, you can view the steep waterfall from the bridge. A view of the Tolmin Gorge from above. A fast flowing river with its footbridge going across. The Gorge is closed over the winter month, but it still gives you this great view from above. The cascading river at the village of Zelezniki in Slovenia with its colorful houses in the background.

Paralyzed Dog Lives Life To The Fullest By Chasing Pigeons2m13s

Paralyzed Dog Lives Life To The Fullest By Chasing Pigeons

Have you ever seen a dog rolling around on a wheelchair or dragging their legs behind them on the ground? That’s paralysis and to a pet owner, it is perhaps the scariest thing that can happen to their dog. A loss of mobility could mean the end for your furry friend, but it doesn’t necessarily have to. Just because a dog is paralyzed doesn’t mean their life is over. Many paralyzed dogs live full and happy lives thanks to dedicated owners. There is plenty you can do to care for your dog if he should suffer from partial or full paralysis. Take this high-energy sausage dog for instance who loves to chase pigeons on his cool cart. That is brave and awesome. It only proves that dogs will be dogs no matter what. His strong will to show his owner that his lust for life is as big as his warm heart, is what keeps their relationship on a piedestal. Only because he is crippled, it doesn’t mean he is going to stay home and sulk his life away. Sometimes, there is beauty in the breakdown and this odg has found the thing what makes him happy. Moreover, he can race like crazy chasing the silly pigeons away because we know that no matter how vigorously one chases pigeons, they will keep on standing on one’s way. This is a great opportunity for this pup to fill his time with joy and happiness and vent off some steam. As long as the pigeons are omitting his way, he is a lucky one. While paralysis in dogs is most often seen in the hind legs, it can also occur in the front legs if the nerve roots in the neck, shoulder, or front legs are injured. For the right owner, however, caring for a paralyzed dog can be a truly rewarding experience and one that brings you and your dog closer together.

Adorable Newborn Foal Nurses From Its Mother58s

Adorable Newborn Foal Nurses From Its Mother

Few things are as beautiful and heartwarming as watching newborn foals with their mothers. This youngster was born less than one week ago and he can be seen enjoying a drink of milk from mom. The two live on a beautiful farm near Millbrook, Ontario. The farm is home to dozens of horses who enjoy the huge meadows that surround their barn and paddock. Foals are born each spring and they spend their first few weeks glued to their mothers. They nurse frequently and grow very quickly. Foals are born with legs that are already 90% of the length of adult horse legs. This makes them look and act adorably clumsy as they try to graze but it also allows them to run at high speed right from day one. It is a necessary survival characteristic as the foal's primary defense from predators is to flee. A foal is able to stand and run within an hour of birth. Foals actually lie down to sleep, unlike their parents, who can sleep standing up. Horses do lie down to sleep, but it is not necessary, as they can lock their joints in order to stay on their feet with minimal muscular effort. Foals need more sleep as they grow and it takes them several months to learn to sleep on their feet. The foals will stretch out flat on their sides while their mother grazes close by. A mare will almost never venture far from its sleeping foal. In a herd, mares will even share the responsibility of babysitting sleeping foals. The mares will make noise to wake the foals if danger presents itself. Foals are beautiful creatures that are always full of energy. They run in circles around their mothers, prance about and play-fight with other foals. They are a perfect example of sheer, simple joy!

This Disney's Pixar-Inspired Display Using 52,000 Dominoes Is Truly Magical2m10s

This Disney's Pixar-Inspired Display Using 52,000 Dominoes Is Truly Magical

You read that right - 52,000 dominoes were used to create this Pixar themed masterpiece. Check it out as they all fall over! Do you like playing dominoes? It one of the oldest board games that is still played to this day. With the recognizable design of the tiles divided in half and the pips on them, they bring a sort of nostalgia in our hearts, back when we didn’t have games like ‘Betrayal at House on the Hill’ and the likes. No, we are not THAT old, we did have ‘Catan’! After centuries of dominoes played as a tile-based game, a man by the name of Bob Speca, Jr. from Broomall, PA. threw the first ever dominoes show, where he set up and toppled down 11,111 pieces in a chain reaction known as the domino effect. Now we see at least 5 times as much tiles ready to display an array of Pixar characters we all know and love! As the ball moves through the gate on the famed Disney castle, characters’ faces start to unfold. First it is Queen Elsa, the troubled young ruler with the magical abilities to create and manipulate ice and snow. She is quickly followed up by Mike Wazowski, Sulley's best friend and working partner in 2001’s ‘Monsters, Inc.’ We see sweet and caring WALL-E, forgetful Dory and curious Nemo, even Remy and his cooking mentor Ratatouille the rat, while all the while Disney’s Pixar’s logo crumbles in the background. The display ends with Mr. Fredricksen’s house from ‘Up’ crumbling to the floor and the gigantic image of Lightning McQueen wraps things up in the center. That was so satisfying to watch!

Who Knew That Blowing Bubbles In Slow Motion Could Be So Satisfying1m31s

Who Knew That Blowing Bubbles In Slow Motion Could Be So Satisfying

It was probably one of the activities we all loved to do as children. Whether it was from a tiny bottle that could hold no more than an ounce and a half of fluid, or one of those huge bubble makers that you dipped in a laundry tub and created those massive bubbles that could easily fit a small child inside, blowing soap bubbles is the safest, coolest, most magical science experiment. Of course, we didn’t care about water tension back then. We just wanted to watch the colors swirl on the surface and catch them bubbles without bursting them. Such fun! Nowadays there are tons of recipes for a concoction that makes long lasting, big and durable bubbles. Anyone can make them, they are that easy! But if you just grab yourself one bottle of bubble fluid off the shelf and turn your camera on slow-motion, you too will be able to capture footage as stunning as this one! Now, with smartphones, it really isn’t that slow to begin with, since the newest, most advanced of them go only as slow as 960 frames per minute. If you really want to capture how the bubble creates from the wand and the rainbow swirls that travel all along its surface, you need a high speed camera! Like the one Paul Bryan used to capture this magical footage in staggering 1500 frames per second! That is so mesmerizing?!
