In the Southern part of the United States, spotting an alligator on a golf course is nothing new, however this big boy that was seen at the third hole of Floridian golf course looked as if it came straight from the movie Jurassic Park. The giant alligator wandering the golf course was nothing short of a monster. Chris Helms who was playing a round of golf couldn’t believe his eyes and pulled out his phone and started filming the beast as it plodded by his group.
Never has the phrase curiosity killed the cat been more applicable than in this case. A young lioness got the shock of her life after she approached what looked to be a motionless grey lump. Instead what she found was an angry hippo. In this video, you will see the lioness walking up to the hippo from behind and taking a sniff of the animal’s rear end. The was enough to send the hippo jumping to its feet, but as the lioness attempts to make its escape, the hippo gets its revenge through a vicious attack that see it grabbing the lion by its head, and whipping it around before spitting it back out and running off.
A couple of film makers chartered a fishing boat to sail off the coast of Western Australia and caught some extremely really rare footage of a crocodile hunting a shark. Christian Kennedy and Jadranko Silic said they were aboard the boat on a week-long fishing expedition as it was sailing along the Kimberly coast in early June. Members of the vessel’s crew decided to toss some fish scraps off the boat and as the scraps of filleted fish were being tossed off the back of the boat, the crocodile approached the boat from some nearby mangroves.
Mark Girardeau is a prolific videographer of wildlife and in his latest video he was waiting for the exact moment when swimmers at a beach would freak out when they realised that a whale was swimming right next to them! Using a drone to capture the video, he filmed the whale cruising into the shallows right next to snorkelers and a woman lying on an alligator raft hanging out in the crystal-clear blue water near Treasure Island beach in Laguna California.

A video has surfaced which shows a woman and her 2-year old baby freediving with dolphins. Whilst the video itself is beautiful there is some cause for concern. The footage was taken off Egypt’s coast and posted on Facebook. In the video the woman can be seen keeping a close eye on her child but at time lets go of the infant whilst dolphins swim less than a few metres away. The baby boy seems to be pretty adept at diving and is able to hold his breath until surfacing whilst the dolphins seem used to having human visitors.
A man who went on a camping trip in Alaska had an encounter with a huge mama grizzly and her two cubs whilst walking on a trail that was far too close for comfort.

Recently a resident of Singapore posted a video to social media which showed a tense battle between a reticulated python and a king cobra which he came across whilst walking along a trail near his home. Sheldon Trollope shared the video on Facebook and said it was filmed by his neighbour whilst the two were hiking along the MacRitchie Nature Trail in Singapore. If you watch the short video, you will see the king cobra slither up behind the python and then deliver a deadly bite to its body before making its escape into the bushes. Mr Trollope says he was later informed by witnesses that the python eventually died as a result of the cobra bite. Check out the video. It’s quite scary to come across such a lethal combination of snakes as they go at it.
The saying goes that dogs are man’s best friend, however if you watch this video, you will see they can also be friends with deer as well. Mark Freeley was walking his dog in Long Island New York and suddenly saw his dog Storm jump into the Long Island Sound. This is the body of water that separates Connecticut from Long island as the dog sought to rescue a young deer that was drowning in the sea. Mr Freeley told a news station that Storm just plunged into the water and started making his way out to the fawn. When he reached the young deer, he grabbed it by the neck and began swimming back to shore.
What should you do when a 7-tonne elephant and its tusks approaches your open-air safari vehicle? Well the short answer to that question is exactly what your safari guide tells you to do.
