Mother Nature's most vicious predators in action
Let's see the coolest stuff you have
Open file up with vlc and what... what do you know; it has a filename
have some microscopic predation
>maybe if I close my eyes, it'll go away
They're able to use special sensory proteins to evaluate their surroundings and initiate chemotaxis. Some bacteria can even mutate and attach special antigens to their surfaces in order to fool our immune systems into leaving them alone.
The BBC logo was still there when it cut to black so I'm assuming they didn't air the rest of the attack
Is there a show out there that doesn't censor nature? I'm starting to think there isn't
Might not be a predator and don't know if it counts as in action, but this scares me.
Egrets just stand around waiting for fish to come up close, if you watch closely, the Corvid in the vid actually plucks a feather to lure the fish over to what might be food. Then, the bird grabs the fish that he lured closer. It's pretty incredible once you see what actually happened.
Cheetahs are incredible. It almost looks unreal what they can do.
>don't realize that there's nothing hanging on to you, you're just kicking out your own guts
nature brings "indifference to suffering" to levels I'm glad we normally don't have to consider anymore
This is surprising the first time I have seen a sloth get killed by a predator.
That's crazy man
That deer was pretty smart hiding in the bushes.
Where did they get the seal?
I love how that other otter ran away, but that dude still toughed it out. Wolves are pussies.
Corvidae is the best family.
This feels less like predation and more like spiritual engulfing.
SJWs have begun targeting our bison brethren.
My cat has been watching this and purring for five minutes
Talk about busting a gut laughing.
I prefer this version :[
>Thrown in a cage with some big bug
>The centipede approaches and stabs your neck with its forcipules
>Probably filled with venom designed to paralize its prey.
>The gecko is alive during the whole process, probably screaming inside in pain and barely trying to free himself with no success (if the venom didn't affect it yet), as the miriapode munches without hesitation his head
Truly a very horrible way to die
Yes, but some places literally serve live mutilated animals.
Theres a video somewhere of a fish having a fillet taken off it on one side, and then being lobbed back into the tank and swimming around and shit.
>“A quick test of the assertion that enjoyment outweighs pain in this world, or that they are at any rate balanced, would be to compare the feelings of an animal engaged in eating another with those of the animal being eaten”
Canines are one of the worse animals to get eaten by since their killing method is just "eat it alive and disembowel it"
People give reptiles a lot of shit for being "creepy" but it's funny how much generally kinder their killing methods -usually- are.
They don't give a fuck.
That poor impala was also exhausted to the point of collapsing when she dashed into the bushes. Animals are horrid.
Lions do the same to biger prey there is a recording of lions who eat a baby elephant slowly over the course of a night, while the elephant is alive, conscious and "crying".
This pisses me off to no end. Anyone who's worked with crocodiles/alligators knows you don't feed them like that BECAUSE THEY WILL TEAR EACH OTHER UP. Hell, I wasn't even taught that when I worked with them, it was fucking common sense.
Yes I mad
That's a cougar/mountain-lion hunting a sloth. How is that even possible if they live in totally different environments. Either the sloth traveled very north, or the cougar somehow went even further south than Mexico.
Had they naturally lived in the same environment, clearly sloths would have gone extinct long ago.
First off, that chicken is clearly an attention whore. Despite the chicken clearly being thrown in there to be eaten by crocodiles, none of them seem to give a fuck. So what does the chicken do? It fucking hops over them, climb their tails and even walk over their heads as if to say "don't you dare fucking ignore me; can't ignore me now!"
Secondly, it is as if the other crocodiles become so jealous that they are even willing to turn the croc that caught the damn chicken into the main dish for not sharing.
So much "what the fuck" in a single clip.
Where can we find the full footage with sound?
Yes they do, the Puma concolor lives throughout all of America. From Canada to Chile.
The Puma covers even more territory than the Panthera.
It's a water tremor.
contribute something better, that way your comment won't look pointless and douchey
All those comments:
>Buu-uh I hate all woodpeckers now :'(
>I'll start shooting woodpeckers whenever I can from now on
>Fucking bastards, how can they be so cruel :(((
>B-but m-muh human morality!
Fucking cancer. I've never cringed so hard in my life.
This is so fucking brutal, definitely the most hardcore thing posted so far, wish there was a webm of it
Does anyone know why woodpeckers would do that? I watched a video once on deer that eat baby bird heads, but why would the woodpecker only eat the brains? I figure it's easier to eat and maybe similar in consistency and slurpability to insects. Still I'm curious how woodpeckers developed this way
>the sound of the woodpecker smashing the skull
Extremely easy to eat for a woodpecker, and it's full of nutrients.
Woodpeckers don't have the anatomy to really rip up a bird and eat it, but they sure do have the anatomy to smash something open and lick out the contents.
They actually specifically target the neck of their prey. I don't know how they do it but 9 out of 10 times they manage to grab their prey by the neck or head.
That pede probably didn't bother with venom for something that small. They generally only inject it when their prey is big or puts up a fight.
Also new thread where?
