Never give up: Epic Eel chestburster escape!

Thursday, November 5, 2020


 I think this eel's escape plan may have been inspired by a certain chest-burster scene from Alien - where the Xenomorph escapes across the table....

You'd think this would be the end of the day right? The bird would have plummeted from the sky?

Nope:





Meet the gargantuan carpet python that likes to eat possums

Tuesday, May 12, 2020
Meet the gargantuan carpet python from Mooloolaba, Australia that likes to eat whole possums, just casually in someone's back yard. Given the snake is on the roof of the house, we guess it slowly snuck down on to an unsuspecting possum on the ground.

Hey Crocodile, you want a zebra for lunch?

Crocodile capturing a zebra in a river then eating it


When one thinks of a zebra being eating, I would normally think of a Lion feeding on one but when you think about it, Zebras need to drink and when the sun beats down you'd be forgiven for tempting fate for trying to have a drink in quiet down the local watering hole...

The Daily Telegraph said of this Reuters photo "the stricken animal was attempting to cross the Mara river in the Masai Mara game reserve in south-western Kenya when the reptile struck.

And the poor zebra's chances did not look very good as two of the croc's hungry friends lurked menacingly in front of it as well." Stricken Animal?

I say the Zebra was freaking lunch meat!

Here's some more pictures of other occasions where some hungry crocs have got themselves some fresh Zebra.

Here's some more crocs having an orgy over this Zebra platter. Good eating boys! I heard afterward they watched Star Wars movies in chronological order! How crazy!

Crocodiles have also been known to eat sharks but also sometimes suffer the misfortune of being eaten by a leopard... but if you want to have a laugh, check out this crocodile with a vet's arm hanging out his mouth!

The Eagle has landed - birds getting their prey

Pictures of Eagles capturing their prey


Eagles are large birds of prey which are members of the bird family Accipitridae, and belong to several genera which are not necessarily closely related to each other. Most of the more than 60 species occur in Eurasia and Africa.

Outside this area, just two species (the Bald and Golden Eagles) can be found in the USA and Canada, nine more in Central and South America, and three in Australia.

Eagles are differentiated from many other birds of prey mainly by their larger size, more powerful build, and heavier head and beak. Even the smallest eagles, like the Booted Eagle (which is comparable in size to a Common Buzzard or Red-tailed Hawk), have relatively longer and more evenly broad wings, and more direct, faster flight. Most eagles are larger than any other raptors apart from the vultures.

Species named as eagles can range in size from the South Nicobar Serpent-eagle, at 500 grams (1.1 pounds) and 40 cm (16 in), to the 6.7-kg Steller's Sea Eagle and the 100 cm (39 in) Philippine Eagle.

Like all strong birds of prey, eagles have very large powerful hooked beaks for tearing the flesh from their prey, strong muscular legs, and powerful talons.

They also have extremely keen eyesight which enables them to spot potential prey from a very long distance above.

This keen eyesight is primarily contributed by their extremely large pupils which ensure minimal diffraction (scattering) of the incoming light.

Hence the expression, "eagle eyed".


Is this prey a rabbit?

Either way it shows you how fast an Eagle can swoop down and catch a prey that is bigger in mass with four legs! Run Rabbit Run!

Run rabbit run!
A rabbit you say?

Heck, my blind grandmother could catch one of those. Ok then, jackass, how about a fox?

You ever seen an eagle catch a cunning fox? You have now:

Want more? Check out these hungry tigers or this killer whale breaking pseudo orca's back... I doubt eagles use pH meters, bit if they did, I'd recommend they check out the Milwaukee ph tester. It's good for all kinds of applications such as testing water & wort. Eagles probably don't use campden tablets for making cider out of apples either!
