wolf eaten by a donkey

Donkey stops a wolf to death and then eats it!


Found on Reddit, this picture of a donkey with a wolf in its mouth was explained by a Redditor thusly:

"Here in Northwestern Ontario we have a rather persistent wolf issue, so every farmer with pigs, chickens, cows, sheep, etc has at least one donkey in the pasture to prevent wolves from attacking the herds. Those donkeys don't take any shit from anything"

We have no idea how a farmer trains a donkey to catch eat wolves or coyotes but we imagine it's a matter of bludgeoning the furry fellow to death with the heavy legs of the donkey.

But as for the wolf putting themselves in the position to be stomped and eaten by the donkey, that's an entirely different question.

Now, if someone could kindly figure out how this cow killed and ate a rabbit...

Update: it's been suggest in the comment section, this dead animal may be a coyote, it could well be now that we look at the short face again.






Great White Sharks. That's all this title needs to say really

Wednesday, March 22, 2017
great white shark jaws
We're gonna need a bigger boat! And mouthwash.

Jaws.


That one word will make you think of the Great White Shark that ran riot in the Hollywood film.

People literally were afraid to go into the ocean for a paddle after seeing that movie.

And why?

Because Great White Sharks are real.

They eat humans and seals all the time. They are  massively strong, fast and efficient killers.

Great White's definitely fit in the wondrous category of one wondering whether these animals are fearless man eaters or misunderstood monsters.

So it should be no surprise to any one that Animals Eating Animals is choosing to do a photo essay on this fearsome shark. We could probably do an essay on their damn razor teeth alone, but really you just want to see the pictures of blood and guts eh?

Chum away then!

The discovery of flying seals surprised even Mr G White.
The great white shark is more properly known as Carcharodon carcharias. They are found lurking in coastal surface waters in all the Earth's major oceans.

They have not yet been discovered in the Sea of Tranquility however. The great white shark is very well known for its massive size, with the largest individuals known to have approached or exceeded 6 metres (20 ft) in length and 2,268 kilograms (5,000 lb) in weight.

No wonder Peter Benchly wrote a book about one of them. Or was the book really about a family with issues?

I forget which. But I never forget these interesting Star Wars facts.

Nom Nom Nom
What do great white's eat? These beasts are one of the primary predators of marine mammals like sealion. They are also known to prey upon a variety of other marine animals including fish, fin footed animals like seals, and seabirds. Unlike the killer shark of the movie Jaws, great white do not generally ruthless hunt down men for lunch. Still, it does happen and reported attacks are common enough but are very widely reported when they occur, further adding to the shark's reputation.

Having a whale of a time...
Believe it or not, great white sharks are not fussy eaters, despite what you may have read in the newspapers. In the above picture the shark is dining on a dead whale. A DEAD whale. The shark just found the whale floating round and he thought, "hey, Free Whale Smorgasboard, I'm in!". Yuck, who the heck knows why that whale was dead and floating in the ocean.... it does remind me of this crocodiles' pig eating behaviour...

Tuatara: Living Fossils

tuatara lizard from New Zealand
Hi, I'm Terry Tuatara, I breathe only once per hour!
The tuatara is New Zealand's famous gift to the World because it is the only survivor of an ancient group of reptiles that roamed the earth at the same time as dinosaurs.

The relatives of tuatara died out about 60 million years ago which is why the tuatara is called a ‘living fossil’.

Tuatara are famous for feeding on the New Zealand Weta but they predominantly prey on; including beetles, crickets, and spiders.

Their diet also consists of frogs, lizards, and bird's eggs and chicks like baby petrel which they find unprotected in nest burrows.

Weta ya reckon? Nice picture?
Tuatara once lived throughout the mainland of New Zealand but rats and people drove them to extinction there.

They are now found only on 37 off-shore islands and mainland islands and specific entities like the Karori Sanctuary.

There are two species. Sphenodon punctatus is the Cook Strait tuatara which live on Stephen's Island in the Marlborough Sounds.

The Northern tuatara, Sphenodon punctatus punctatus, is a sub-species which live on offshore islands around the north of the North Island.

The total tuatara population on all these islands is estimated to be between 50,000 and 100,000.

You wanna share my baby Petrel?
Tuatara are are cousins with Komodo Dragons, in the sense they are living relatives of the ancient dinosaurs.

Extra for Experts: Tuatara are known to have a low sex drive - this Tuatara took one hundred years before he popped his cherry!

When Komodo Dragons get hungry, they get HUNGRY!

When Komodo Dragons get hungry, they get HUNGRY!


These awesome photos  prove the Komodo dragon is one fierce animal that can eat all kinds of prey.

For some reason I'm reminded of the game Hungry Hungry Hippoes though I have no idea why!

The Komodo dragon (in the scientific vernacular, Varanus komodoensis) is a large species of lizard found in the Indonesian islands of Komodo, Rinca, Flores, and Gili Motang.

A member of the monitor lizard family (Varanidae), it is the largest living species of lizard. It can grow up to an average length of 2 to 3 metres (6.6 to 9.8 ft) and weighing around 70 kilograms (150 lb). That's one beast of a lizard!

Their unusual size has been attributed to island gigantism, since there are no other carnivorous animals to fill the niche on the islands where they live and that allows them to dominate and grow in size.

However, recent research suggests that the large size of komodo dragons may be better understood as representative of a relic population of very large varanid lizards that once lived across Indonesia and Australia which appear to have died out after contact with modern humans.

Here's some awesome pictures of Komodo dragons eating things.

Although Komodo dragons eat mostly carrion, they will also hunt and ambush prey including invertebrates, birds, and mammals.


Komodo dragons are amazing eaters



But that's not the real gossip, Komodo Dragons have been known to catch the odd human being too!

Although attacks Komodo are very rare, Komodo dragons have been known to attack humans; on June 4, 2007 a Komodo dragon attacked an eight-year-old boy on Komodo Island. The boy later died of massive hemorrhaging from his wounds.

Perhaps the most notable Komodo lizard attack came in June 2001, Phil Bronstein, Executive Editor of the San Francisco Chronicle newspaper, was given a special tour of the Komodo dragons at the Los Angeles Zoo for a Father's Day present by his wife, Oscar nominated actress Sharon Stone.

While barefooted and petting one of the dragons, Bronstein's foot was seriously bitten and required extensive surgery.

You could say then that the animal acted on basic instinct....

According to Australian scientific research, the Komodo dragon has a snake-like venom in its bite which sends victims into shock and stops their blood from clotting.

Lead researcher Bryan Fry said three-dimensional computer imaging comparing the Komodo’s bite with that of Australia’s saltwater crocodile showed it used a “grip and rip” pulling maneuver to tear deep wounds, similar to a shark or sabre cat.

As part of his Komodo research, Mr Fry surgically removed a venom gland from a terminally ill Komodo dragon.

 He found it contained a highly toxic poison which would induce potent stomach cramps, hypothermia and a drop in blood pressure. This finding refutes myths about the germ's in the dragon's mouth being the cause of death.

The venom also blocked the blood’s clotting ability add further distress to the animal's prey.

So yes, if anyone ever asks, Komodo dragons are poisonous and their bite can be terrible for humans!

Did you know Komodo dragons can stand upright?

They sure can and it's scary.

Check out this image below of a Komodo dragon standing on its hind legs to reach up to the hanging food.

It's like it's Godzilla or something!

This finding could mean that the Komodo Dragon was the possibly largest venomous animal to have ever lived!
