Giant otter defeats and eats a crocodile

Thursday, January 26, 2017
If you ever take a visit to Wellington, check out the Zoo.

It's quite a nice one and the animals are treated very well. The first animals you meet are a pair of the cutest otters you might have ever seen.

They run around their enclosure, splashing in the water and eating crabs and fish for lunch.

I'm not sure they ever seen a crocodile before but it's pretty clear this otter below has.

And has a taste for them:

This otter must be on fucking steroids! Look at that face. He's a monster!

He's a huge mother and he's managed to corner, capture and kill a crocodile.

Naturally one must eat his opponent after such an effort so he he is, eating the tasty flesh.

Here's a sweet video of a whole gang of otters taking down a caiman. Impressive stuff and nature at its finest indeed.

Cornered Leopard tries to eat man, scalps him


Part of an Indian man's scalp was ripped off by a wild leopard after it panicked and attacked four people when it wandered into a residential area in India.

They say if you mess with the bull, you're gonna get the horns..

The fully-grown leopard set upon the group when it walked into a house in a busy neighbourhood of Guwahati, a large city in north-east India.

The gentleman above is apparently a cook named Hari, whose scalp was severely cut as he tried to fend off the leopard. That man deserves a beer. Maybe he should brew his own beer. Maybe he should play with more Star Wars lego.

Apparently a quick witted fellow managed to shut the sharp clawed leopard inside the house before forest officials came to sedate the beast.

Hari was taken to hospital for injuries to his head and face, while the leopard was taken to a zoo for observation. "We believe the cat strayed into the area from a nearby hillock, maybe in search of food," a forest department official said.

So not really the case of a leopard eating a man but more of a scared animal lashing out. Perhaps a lesson there for all of us.

Leopards are usually much more clever - here's one from Africa that's put an impala in a tree for eating later.

Australian Snake eats a bat, Reddit freaks out as usual.

Australian Snake captures a bat on the side of the road


A keen Redditor posted this picture he took of a scene he found outside his grandmother’s house in Mount Tambourine, Queensland, Australia.

Basically this snake appears to have caught a bat / flying fox of some kind and decided to eat it in the middle of the road.

Here's a sweet picture of an Australian snake eating a bat that it managed to find on the side of the road. The reaction on Reddit was amusing. Snakes eat things people!


The only real issue here is that the snake chose to chow down on the bat WITHOUT.ANY.SAUCE.

Want to see snakes eating more things? Here's the classic python dragging a Kangaroo up a cliff or a snake trying to eat Britney Spears. And if you are a Star Wars fan, check out some classic Obi Wan quotes.

Wasps eating the meat of a dead snake

The title of this post pretty much sums up all this photo is. Yes, these wasps have come across a dead snake and are chowing down on its yummy meat:

snake being eaten by wasps

Found on Reddit, this picture drew some interesting commentary. One knowledge Redditor pointed out that wasps do eat meat and protein, or rather their young do:

'It's how they feed their young. The adult wasps only need flower nectar and other sugars to fuel their life processes, but the larvae need proteins to grow into adults. As such, adult wasp also hunt and scavenge for sources of protein that they don't even eat themselves. When they get back to the hive, they chew it up into meatballs and give them to the larvae one at a time. The larvae even scratch the sides of their cells to make noise to get the attention of worker wasps and say that they are hungry.'

With an attitude like that, it's no wonder most people prefer bees... If I was a wasp, I'd sure want to test the ph of that meat, maybe with an Apera Pocket Tester.

Everglades: Python vs Alligator

Saturday, January 21, 2017
python versus alligator everglades burst stomach

The infamous Python vs Alligator photo from the Everglades Swamp!


This is what happens when pythons are released into the Everglades.

The pythons get eyes bigger than their stomachs and think it's safe to eat a whole alligator.

Stupid snake!

The Professor Mazzotti who knows about these things believes the alligator was alive when the titanic struggle commenced. It may have clawed at the python's stomach as the snake tried to digest it, leading to the bursting of the stomach.

The hungry python was found with the alligator's hindquarters protruding from its midsection. It's stomach still surrounded the alligator's head, shoulders, and forelimbs.

Lunch was just too big an order. 


Scientists have documented four such encounters between the giant snakes and alligators in the last three years. The encroachment of Burmese pythons into the Everglades could threaten an $8 billion restoration project and endanger smaller species.

Wikipedia notes the invasiveness of the Python:

Native to southern Asia, the Burmese python is a relatively new invasive species in the Everglades. The species can grow up to 20 feet (6.1 m) long and they compete with alligators for the top of the food chain. Florida wildlife officials speculate that pet owners released their pythons and they have begun reproducing rapidly in an environment for which they are well-suited.

That's what happens when you screw with nature eh?

Oh all right here's another picture: Alligator Vs Python Round 2. I think this Alligator wins the round.
