David vs Goliath

The crowned crane may look like an uppity bitch of opulence who would rather destroy a bitch with a devastating side-eye or ask to speak with its rival’s manager than get its feathers dirty with peasant dust by fighting a bitch.

But I shouldn’t judge a decadent book by its cover because this crowned crane was ready to try to fuck an elephant herd up for getting too close to its nest for comfort.

The video was taken at the Maasai Mara National Reserve in Kenya by Tayla McCurdy who said that when the herd of elephants got close to a nest of eggs, a crowned crane’s feathers ruffled all the way up and it pulled some “hold me back, bro” shit, which apparently amused the elephant until it didn’t anymore and it tried to trunk slap a bitch before exiting the scene.

Honestly, though, that crowned crane may be an overrating drama queen, but that’ll teach those elephants!

EPIC Jump

Bobcats are elusive and nocturnal, so they’re rarely spotted in daylight. But here’s a treat for all the wild feline fans out there.

The impressive moment of a bobcat leaping across the weir for what seems like forever was captured on camera in Pecan Island, Louisiana.

The feline is seen composing himself right before the jump and reaching the other side in one single move.

There’s only 1 Olympic gold medal and the winner is clear!

Spy in the Wild

With its clementine-coloured wings bordered with black lines and white spots, the monarch, also known as Danaus Plexippus, is a widely recognisable insect. As the weather changes and gets cooler, the monarchs migrate from their breeding grounds in Canada and the northern United States and fly to central Mexico, where they form clustered colonies on oyamel fir trees to conserve heat until the days grow longer and they migrate north once again. 

In this spectacular clip filmed by the PBS series Spy in the Wild, a mechanical “spy hummingbird” flies over a swarm of resting monarchs. Creators chose the flying creature because it feeds on nectar and thus isn’t seen as a threat.

 
Breathtaking!!

Glowing Dolphins

Stunning new 4K video of dolphins swimming in blue bioluminescence ...

Photographer Patrick Coyne was lucky enough to capture some dolphins swimming through bioluminescent algae off the coast of Newport Beach, CA.

When this kind of algae is disturbed, it emits a bluish light, which causes the dolphins to glow as they move through the water. He wrote about the experience “one of the most magical nights of my life” on Instagram:

 
More dolphins swimming in bioluminescent waters here. Incredible!!! 

The Graceful Golden Retriever

Okay, standards are low and entertainment value is significantly down right now. So as a result, people are turning to Tiktok videos and onlyfans.com in order to stay sane… although, why paying for onlyfans when you can watch amateur porn online for free?

Anyhow as expected, some of these videos are buzzworthy,  just like this one!

The video in question appears to have been created by some bored pet owner who is clearly having a moment and dancing dangerously close to the edge. In it, an obstacle course of random household items has been set up in the hallway frequently travelled by the owner’s cat and dog. While the cat tackles the imposing items with a cat’s usual level of IDGAF, the pupper, who has been seemingly terrified by the randomness scattered in front of him/her, needs a little motivation.

When the dog finally works up the courage to walk through the minefield of triggers, it does so with a level of confidence and grace typically reserved for those on a walk of shame home after a night of questionable choices.

I was a bit sceptical the Golden would do it, but it was done beautifully!

COVID Infections Found In More Big Cats At Bronx Zoo

Over two weeks ago, the Bronx Zoo revealed that Nadia the tiger had tested positive for coronavirus. Now the zoo says three more tigers and three African lions have contracted the disease.

And if that’s not cat-astrophic enough for you, two kitty cats from New York have also tested positive!

First the shitshow that was Cats, then Tiger King, now this? Pussies are having a rough 2020.

But what about this BIG pussy?

What worries me the most is that every time it crosses species, it increases the chance of mutating.  Every day brings new horror stories with this virus.
