Dale Pearson, resident of Puertecitos in Baja California, Mexico, spotted what appeared to be a stranded hammerhead shark or beached whale in shallow waters. He decided to take a closer look, but to much of his surprise, he waded out to come face to face with a Great White Shark.
Pearson filmed the 15 feet long shark with his camera phone as it thrashed around in 3 feet of water. Warning: Graphic Language (viewer) discretion advised.
According to the video, this Great White Shark was most likely in shallow water to hunt stingrays, and appears to be injured by a boat propeller of some kind. In the video, the shark appears to have a large wound near the dorsal fin. However, Pearson states the shark was not mortally wounded and swam away just 30 minutes later. In addition, this shark has been spotted several times thereafter several days apart.
There's always a bigger fish. Did you know sharks eat other sharks?
According to the video, a group of fisherman were out near a Nuclear Power Plant in a kayak and on a paddleboard and inadvertently hooked a 4 foot black tip shark. Before the fisherman could get this shark off their line, a huge bull shark comes in for a meal. See in the video below starting at 1:48:
Now we all have been guilty of exaggerating the size of our catch, but if that blacktip shark is actually 4 foot, then exactly HOW BIG is that bull shark? That aside, one rogue wave and the paddleboarder could've easily become dessert and a quick cameo in a the next Jaws film. Being out on the water in a kayak, or even worse - a paddleboard - is a little too much for comfort.
Looks like Godzilla wanted to get a couple holes in before lunch. This giant alligator may very well be one of the largest ever documented. However, it will be hard to beat the Florida state record, which is currently holding at 14 feet, 3 1/2 inches from Lake Washington, according to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Committee.
Even though it may not beat the record, we are willing to be golfers and local authorities would prefer that he stay clear of local golf courses.
Why are these death-defying goats climbing this 160-foot-tall, near vertical dam? Better question is How are they defying gravity? Check it out in the National Geographic footage below:
Thanks to their specially designed split hooves and rubber-like soles, the Alpine Ibex is able to climb near vertical surfaces with ease to lick the side of this dam.
You might be wondering why they would go to these heights just to lick a rock. However, the dam's salt-crusted stones provide essential nutrients that the herbivorous mammals need.

We've all melted them in the microwave, but what exactly happens to a Peep in an explosion?

Shocking surveillance footage shows unsuspecting man being bulldozed by a deer in British Columbia. I audibly laughed way too hard when I first saw this.
While it's unclear why or how this exactly happened, both the man and the deer appear unharmed.
Exercising gone wrong! This group of runners is blindsided by a HERD of deer in the middle of a race at DeSales University in Pennsylvania. You have to see to it believe it:

This coyote messed with the wrong deer. Personally, we'd have dropped that coyote instead of picking up the camera to film.
Coyotes have become a nuisance and they have overpopulated many areas at an alarming rate. Aside from humans (predator hunters like us), coyotes have little to fear as predators and can thrive in almost any environment.
They have caused extensive damage to other game species such as whitetail deer, livestock, domestic pets and even humans. What's more alarming is how brave these coyotes are towards humans. Even in urban areas, coyotes have been appearing laying waste to domestic pets and have even been reported to attack humans. #predatorcontrol is a necessary conservation attempt to help prevent or minimize damage.
What happens when you mess with a porcupine? The answer may seem obvious to you, but this boa constrictor is for a rude awakening...
While it's unclear at to what transpired prior to this video, it appears this snake chose the wrong thing to eat for lunch. I doubt the snake even got the chance to attempt to swallow his prey, but that is probably for the best. As the snake wrapped his coils around to suffocate his prey, the porcupines spines were released, and the increased pressure pushed them further into the predator. He may have a hard time eating solid food for a while.
