Holy Crap, This Is A Lot Of Freaking Sharks

Video: Smithsonian Channel’s Secrets of Shark Island is a wonderful documentary about the ecosystem in the waters around the Revillagigedo Islands, a group of four volcanic islands 386km off of Mexico. Because it’s “the only natural juncture for miles” in the Pacific Ocean, there’s a lot going on around there. Most scarily, a shit ton of migrating sharks. My God, just look at all them.


Watch This Freakishly Agile Dog-Bot Do The Dishes

Boston Dynamics, better known for the hulking robot brute known as ATLAS, has just revealed a considerably smaller creation that looks like a cross between a golden retriever and a baby giraffe.

The Best Killer Animal Movies, By Species

Humanity getting on your nerves? We hear you. Sometimes the best thing to do is to just hit the couch and watch a movie about nature taking its revenge on homo sapiens. But which film to watch?

A Snake Got Trapped Inside An Endless Circle Of Its Own Shedding Skin

Video: Poor snake. This slithery Stimson’s Python somehow managed to shed its skin completely within itself. The tail, oddly enough, finished shedding inside the mouth of the snake, forming a perfect circle that unfortunately trapped the snake inside of its old skin. According to the Alice Springs Reptile Centre, the non-venomous snake was just going around and around inside its own skin for over three hours before it was able to find a way out.


Hundreds Of Thousands Of Giant Spider Crabs Littered Across The Ocean Floor Looks Like Hell

Real life is worse than nightmares because even in my worst dreams, my twisted imagination could never cook up seeing hundreds of thousands of giant spider crabs littered across the ocean floor. Just imagine yourself swimming in the ocean and being swallowed by the horde of crabs. Imagine all those creepy arms entombing you. Gah, it’s so gross.


Newly Discovered Mating Position Shows Frogs Have Freaky Sex Lives

Until recently, only six frog mating positions had been documented — which is still five more than most people would have ever expected — but as New Scientist points out, a seventh froggystyle position has been found. It’s messy.


This Painting Of A Wolf Is Actually Hiding Three People In Bodypaint

Video: Bodypaint artist Johannes Stötter is famous for hiding the human body in the shape of animals with the perfect amount of shading and the right mixture of paint. This time he painted three women into a sculpture of a wolf. If you’re looking closely, you can see the shape of the person on the wolf’s belly and back but the head of the wolf is so well done that it hides the last bodypainted person wonderfully.


These Disgusting Worms Can Basically Survive In Hell

Colorado is home to Sulphur Cave, which is exactly what it sounds like: A big, nasty hole that’s filled with deadly gas and dripping with acid. Nothing should live there. It’s basically hell on Earth. But then, scientists discovered clumps of limnodrilus sulphurensis wriggling around on the cave floor.


Check Out This Huge, Gross Earthworm

Video: The Amazon rain forest is full of enormous flora and fauna that are more than happy to kill you without blinking an eye. But compared to say, a giant centipede or a harpy eagle, the giant earthworm seems downright friendly. If the prospect of befriending a 1.5m worm is your cup of tea, that is.


This Frilled-Neck Lizard Chasing People Down Is My Jurassic Park Nightmare

Video: Remember that annoying bastard of a dinosaur from Jurassic Park that sprayed his face open and spewed out poison at people? Yeah, that damn Dilophosaur terrified me as a kid. Actually, I’m still scared of it. So if I saw this frilled-neck lizard chasing me down like this, I’d totally lose it. This little lizard prick never gives up! It’s Jurassic Park in real life.
