Marlice Van Der Merwe walks right up to a pack of cheetahs in the African wild. They hiss and growl, but she doesn’t turn away. She continues closer and the cats seem a nervous. As long as you act calm and keep eye contact, they won’t attack. At least you hope. By the end, she’s petting the cats. Wow.
When he retrieved his camera, he discovered adorable footage of newly weaned harbor seal pups trying their best to climb onto the slippery, wet surfboard.
The cheetah has long been known as the world’s fastest land animal, but few understand just how incredible the cat must be to hold such an impressive title.
The average cheetah can accelerate to 75 MPH in just three seconds, the time it takes for just three strides. Every part of the cheetah is built for speed, from its light weight body to its flat head.
The big cat runs so fast, its legs spend more time in the air than on the ground.
Now that digital cameras have become as ubiquitous as eye glasses, more and more special, magical moments are ending up online for thousands to see.
An online favorite is rare human-animal interactions in the wild.
In March, the web awwed over this adorable GoPro video a surfer took when a baby seal boarded his craft. That video now stands with nearly two million views.
Apparently, seals are just like dogs and like to cuddle.
Everyone online knows that cats are extremely agile, lithe, and athletic. That’s just one reason why they are such captivating creatures. Maxime Dehaye was at the tiger exhibit at the zoo when it was feeding time. He was lucky enough to capture the exact moment when one of the tigers jumped nearly as high as the fence to catch a giant hunk of meat. Dinner time!
Thankfully for kitty, one of the men was brave enough to somehow tear the powerful snake off of the feline. That snake can not be in a good mood after losing its lunch.
I’ve never seen a troll bird before, but there’s a first time for everything. The bird pecks at and bullies the cat, who seems to be minding its own business. After one too many pecks, the cat finally strikes and catches the troll.
I can’t believe it, but the real Garfield has been found. Here, the real life lazy Garfield cat just sits on a chair and watches as a seagull walks in the house. The bird cautious looks at the cat, and slowly decides to go for the food bowl. It takes a couple bites and then things really get funny. The video is featured on TastefullyO.
