Video of man dressed up as his dog’s favorite toy has the internet going nuts

Dog Video Cute
In today's Internet age, where crazy and insane videos are the norm, it's becoming increasingly hard to find truly impressive and original footage that you didn't already stumble across years ago. Every once in a while, though, we manage to strike gold. Whether it's two fools eating a Carolina Reaper (aka the world's hottest pepper) or a man named Coyote Peterson getting purposefully bit by a tarantula hawk, the Internet still remains an endless reservoir of amazement. That said, earlier today we discovered the mother lode, a video so heartwarming, hilarious, creative and unforgettable that words simply can't do it justice. As if we needed any more proof that dogs are amazing creatures, watch what happens when this dog owner -- we'll just call him 'genius' for now -- decides to dress up as his dog's favorite play toy, a stuffed version of Gumby.

Man lets a tarantula hawk sting him and the video is absolutely crazy

Tarantula Hawk
If you've never heard of the tarantula hawk before, you probably want to keep it that way. For those unfamiliar, the tarantula hawk is a wasp that - no joke - actively hunts tarantulas. Tarantula hawks can be found across most parts of the world but you thankfully don't need to run for cover as they don't often sting humans unless provoked. What makes the tarantula hawk as intriguing as it is terrifying is that its sting is incredibly painful. So painful, in fact, that a sting from a tarantula hawk is largely considered to be the second most painful sting in the world. Now if you're a human being of even moderate intelligence, you're obviously going to do everything in your power to stay out of a tarantula hawk's way. But if your name happens to be Coyote Peterson, well, you've really got no choice but go out into the desert, capture a a tarantula hawk, let it sting you on purpose, and film the entire ordeal for the collective amusement and horror of the masses.

The new trailer for ‘Planet Earth II’ is absolutely mesmerizing

Planet Earth II Trailer
When the BBC documentary series Planet Earth was first released in 2006, its impact was immediate and far-reaching. In addition to providing us with an unprecedented and vivid look at animal behavior across all the major continents, it was also one of the first programs that helped jump-start HDTV sales. Now, 10 years later, the second installment of Planet Earth II is just around the corner. Slated to air later this year (a premiere date is still unknown), Planet Earth II promises to be even more jaw-dropping than the original. Filmed in stunning 4K, the documentary series will feature the narration of David Attenborough.

Smart Seagull Tricks Dumb Man Into Giving It Free Food By Beating the Shell Game

Smart Seagull Tricks Dumb Man Into Giving It Free Food By Beating the Shell Game

Sure, it may look like the seagull is playing along with the man hiding the food under three cups in an attempt to trick the bird but know this: seagulls are motherfuckers who don’t care about you or silly games. It is not playing along. It is in complete control. The bird is only pretending because it knows that it’s the only way it’ll get food from this guy (for now). Once the guy exposes his food stash, the seagull is going to attack it and then poop all over the dude who thought it was cute to play games with seagulls.

Dolphin teaches human that iPad pictures are dumb

Dolphin iPad Snatch
The iPad has a camera, but that doesn't mean you should take it places and use it like a camera. In fact, if you do that, you are an objectively awful human being. But don't just take my word for it: this dolphin, a member of another highly intelligent species, clearly agrees. This golden moment was captured on film at SeaWorld Orlando, made infamous by 2013 documentary Blackfish. Fox 11 has the full clip, captured by SeaWorld season pass holder (yep, that's a thing!)  Kuadiel Gomez.

Endangered ferrets are being saved by drones that drop vaccine-laced M&Ms

It's the first time that I really can get such a cute ferret portrait! Here’s your weird but interesting technology story for the day. The U.S Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) are using M&M dispensing drones to save endangered black-footed ferrets in rural Montana. The ferret’s main source of food are prairie dogs, which being killed by the sylvatic plague, a disease spread by rats and fleas that has existed since the 1800s. To date, biologists… Read More

Crazy video shows why you should never turn your back on a lion

Lion Attack
It's funny how the lion is considered to be the king of the jungle, yet as anyone who has watched a nature documentary can attest, all lions seem to do for most of the day is sleep and hang out in the sun. Truth be told, the kind of the jungle tagline has less to do with a lion's ferocity and more to do with outward appearances and the "social structure of a pride." That notwithstanding, lions, like other big cats, are incredibly skilled predators. Sure, everyone knows that they have power and can be vicious when need be, but they can also be stealthy and smart when on the prowl. Case in point: a recent video out of a zoo in Japan shows why you should never turn your back on a big cat. To be clear, no one in the video was injured so there's no reason to fret.

Watch: A zoo strapped a GoPro to a cheetah and the result is incredible

Cheetah Runs
It's no secret that the Cheetah is the fastest land animal on the planet, but it's sometimes hard to put their tremendous speed into perspective. Consider this: you could be cruising along the highway doing 65 and it would be entirely possible to look out your window and see a cheetah actually pass you. When it comes to actual metrics, the cheetah can run as fast as 70 mph during short bursts. On the acceleration front, the cheetah isn't a slouch either as it can go from 0 to 60 mph in less than three seconds, about as quick as a tricked out Tesla Model S.

Seeing Animals Migrate in Yellowstone Is Pretty Incredible

Seeing Animals Migrate in Yellowstone Is Pretty Incredible

It’s wonderful to be able to see nature like this, with animals in a habitat that has largely been left untouched. I’ve watched this video multiple times, first to see the animals—elk, pronghorn, etc.—migrate and then again to just appreciate the beauty of Yellowstone.
