Perhaps this massive eagle thought the ball was a strange egg? Regardless, that's some impressive claw control.

Sea Turtle's eye-view of the Great Barrier Reef

vndrJr

This fantastic video from the World Wildlife Fund in Australia is a turtle’s eye view of the The Great Barrier Reef. The sensitive ecological zone is home to almost 6,000 species.

To find out more about the level of pollution affecting turtles within the Great Barrier Reef, WWF is working on innovative project in Queensland with the support of our partners Banrock Station Wines Environmental Trust, James Cook University, The University of Queensland, the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority, State and Commonwealth government agencies, Indigenous rangers and local community groups.

As part of that project, the opportunity arose to very carefully fit a small GoPro camera to a turtle, to better understand the post-release behaviour of tagged green turtles. The result is this amazing video.

This week, the World Heritage Committee will vote whether to keep a strong watch over Australia until the health of the Great Barrier Reef. The decision is critical to the future protection of the Reef.

Beetles would strip Zombies to the bone

David Mizejewski with the National Wildlife Federation explains why beetles would eat zombie brains faster than they could eat ours in the animals vs undead apocalypse. "Flesh eating beetles, as their name suggests, specialize in feeding on dead flesh. Once they infested a zombie, it would be just a matter of days until these tiny beetles stripped the walker to the bone."

No brains, no zombie.
