Having a whale of a time?

Whale lands on boat off Massachusetts coast in ‘insane’ moment caught on video.

The operator reported no injuries and no major damage to the boat, but no mention was made on the condition of the whale.

Anyone else care to try this out?
Daring diver ‘hypnotizes’ 7-foot shark into trance for a full minute
In one of the clips, shared to Instagram by Florida-based underwater photographer Tanner Mansell, his friend and fellow diver, named Chang, can be seen cradling a 7-foot Caribbean reef shark — which can grow to 10-feet long — in Nassau, Bahamas, the Mirror reported.

The shark charmer was reportedly able to handle the predator that way for a full minute as he descended peacefully into the gloom.

Once thought to be extinct 30yrs ago recent finds have sparked A helicopter mission to save the Central Rock-Rat (Video).

A desert helicopter mission in the Northern Territory may help save Australia's most endangered mammal.
I hope that it works for the cute little buggers.

Cheers.

They could've at least flogged this idiot until he was down with the horse.

Driver whips carriage horse collapsed on busy street.

I sure hope that he gets banned from having anything else to do with animals ever again.

Animal cruelty and mistreatment. The driver should be subject to some trial offenses and re-educational courses.

Now 1 would really have to question why?

Inventor develops a four-legged robot that allows snakes to 'walk'.

I think that some people just have far too much free time on their hands.

Karma bites again...
A man in Uttar Pradesh (India) died of a highly-venomous snake bite about an hour after he rescued a common krait. The victim, was trying to shoot a video with the snake wrapped around his neck, when he was bitten in a village in Shahjahanpur district of UP.

Why do stupid some people want dangerous or exotic pets?

“He's a big supporter of people needing smiles," Wally’s Handler Joie Henney told ABC 6. “He works with a lot of special needs adults and children. He puts thousands of smiles on people's faces almost every day. He comforts people when they're sad."

Henney said he can’t explain it, but the gator has never attempted to attack anyone.

... until the gator does attack some one.

What was this fool thinking when he decided to swim across the 'pond'....
Florida man survives 3 days in swamp after losing arm in alligator attack: 'Do or die'
Merda told the outlet that he spotted his truck across a body of water and jumped into the water figuring he could swim to his vehicle. Halfway across the lake, Merda says he encountered an alligator that grabbed his arm and snapped it as it tried to pull him under the water three times.

"It's do or die," Merda explained. "Do you want to live or die. I was given the opportunity to make a chance, and I decided to live."

..."Leave the alligators alone," Merda warned. "More times than not it's not the people's fault that are getting attacked. It's the people throwing rocks and giving them food."
