Hippo Trys To Save A Life

Odd that such a large creature would try and defend something so small, but I guess that motherly instinct is strong in this one...

This next clip shows is some rare footage of a hippo actually eating meat, but first it must scare away the fierce predator!

We Would All Be Dead Without Trees

This documentary from the BBC is an in depth look at some of the biggest and unique forests around the world. The giant sequoia General Sherman is the the largest living thing on the planet, coming in over 10 times the side of a blue whale! These trees have been alive for thousands of years! Hey they were here way before us so maybe we should show a little respect or maybe even learn a thing or two...

Be prepared though this video is almost an hour long.

7 Million Views On Youtube Means It Must Be Good!

Apparently I am one of the last people on the planet to see this next clip! I won't ruin it for those of you who still haven't seen what is now know as The Battle At Kruger....

Ah the power of numbers never fails to amazing me... too bad that doesn't seem to work in America!

Not sure who to root for in this next clip... the the weak little man who thinks he is so great because he can apply a few ounces of pressure on a trigger or the ferocious lion that is one of the most skilled predators on our planet? Tough call...

The Cycle Of Life In Deer Cave

A very interesting look at how nature survives even without the mighty power of the sun. Instead this massive cave runs all on droppings. I guess one creatures trash really is another's treasure! I certainly hope you have never seen this many cockroaches in one place...
