What you are about to watch is truly terrifying, yet I couldn’t look away. Reddit user Longkniferevolution woke up to the sound of tapping outside his window. That alone would be scary to say the least. However, what he found was worse than where his imagination had wandered.
What this Akron, Ohio man found hanging from his awning, right outside his bedroom window, stopped him in his tracks. At first he thought the insects he saw were yellow jackets, but after this mind-boggling video went viral, he found out that they were bald faced hornets.
These very aggressive insects that were causing the tapping sound as they hit his window, had incredibly formed the most massive nest I have ever seen, apparently overnight! We all know that at the end of August, bees are everywhere, but it happens that these particular types of hornets work feverishly to defend the precious eggs the queen has laid. With the future of their next generation at stake, they are capable of building such a gigantic nest in no time. While many people who have seen this video have made wild suggestions about how to get rid of this nest, understandably, Longkniferevolution is to be lauded about his decision. He plans to wait for the first freeze to hit Ohio before he removes the nest. In doing this he won’t kill the future of the species, and the freeze will kill the existing bees. He’s pretty freaked out but is thinking rationally.
After you watch this 90-second video of the largest active nest I’ve ever seen, please share what you would do if you found such a scary spectacle hanging from your awning! I’m just freaked from watching the wild activity of the hornets on video…really not sure what I would do if it were hanging outside my window.
What would you do in this situation?

A scuba diver recently had a surprising and wonderful experience with a wild grey seal while he was partaking in some underwater exploring. The once in a lifetime chance meeting occurred in the Atlantic Ocean off the Isles of Scilly in England. Gary Grayson was diving alongside several other people when a group of Atlantic grey seals decided to check them out. The large seals swam about the strange visitors and one seal in particular took an interest in Grayson.
The friendly mammal got up close and personal with the diver and videographer, and thankfully there was someone among the group who caught the whole encounter on film. The seal can be seen putting his flipper up against the man’s hand, as if he was comparing the two, and nuzzling the diver with his large head. Then he starts to pat Grayson’s hand and looks to be urging the man to give his belly a rub as he rolls over onto his side and back! The man obliges and the seal looks like he is loving the attention. There is a smile on the seal’s face the whole time and he looks incredibly relaxed and at ease. It’s a beautiful sight to see as the big sea creature acts like a happy puppy getting his tummy rubbed. The seal even uses his flippers to stay in place and guide the man’s hands to where he wants a scratch.
Seals are often referred to as “dogs of the sea” because of their playful and friendly behavior around humans and other animals. A few of them have even been captured on film snuggling up to their canine counterparts and romping around in the water with them. This video certainly backs up the comparison, and while dogs are man’s best friend on land, seals are man’s best friend in the water. The remarkably friendly one that Grayson met is truly a sweetheart and what an amazing experience it must have been for everyone involved.

It never fails to amaze me when different species of animals display the instinct to help each other in a crisis. Such a moment is captured in this wildlife video of a herd of zebras crossing over to land, while swimming across an African river. We watch, as a little baby zebra begins to falter when he gets tired and disoriented in the current.
What happens next is truly heartwarming. None of the other zebras are aware of the little foal’s distress. As he is floundering, out of nowhere a gigantic, concerned and friendly hippo comes to the rescue. As the current is pulling the little zebra, the hippo gently nuzzles him toward land. He stays with the little guy, guiding him in the right direction.
When the baby zebra reaches the shore on his shaky little legs, he gets caught between some giant rocks. This nurturing hippo stays behind him, still concerned for his welfare, and gently nudges him through the obstacles. He doesn’t leave the dazed little foal until he is certain that he is steady and headed in the right direction. This amazing video is set to just the right musical accompaniment, which all the more dramatizes this unusually touching rescue.

Unimaginably horrible living conditions were the fate of four bears for the last 20 years. They were confined to rusty small cages, with no shade, and no free access to water when they wanted, at a decrepit roadside zoo in Pennsylvania, USA. Bruno, Fifi, Marsha and Pocahontas experienced this mental and physical cruelty without hope.
So neglected, and further forced to perform tricks when suffering from arthritis, these poor bears were in terrible shape when they were discovered. After so many years of suffering, these wonderful animals were rescued in July, 2015; Wild Animal Sanctuary in Colorado and PETA finally came to their rescue.
This beautiful video shows us the incredibly uplifting scene of the the bears, taking their first step out of their horrible cages, toward a life of care and ultimately freedom. Once adjusted, the four friends will be released into a 15 acre habitat where they will live out the rest of their lives free in nature.

I have to wonder what motivated the guy in this video to set up a tetherball and a camera in the middle of the forest. Perhaps he knows that the wildlife hanging out there would have a particular affinity to this ball. He was right!
A group of rams were romping in the forest and four or five of them ran past the hanging tetherball without any interest. One ram, however, stopped in his tracks in order to play tetherball like a pro. What’s amazing to me is how he instantly knows what to do with this bizarre object in the middle of his natural habitat, while his pals never catch on.
He “rams” this tetherball with such finesse that you can’t stop watching. He’s been nicknamed “the angry ram”, as he has become a star on his own YouTube channel, but I beg to differ. I think he’s just a smart animal who sees a great opportunity to use his “equipment” to enjoy a unique plaything that’s suddenly appeared for his pleasure. Do you think the “Angry Ram” deserves a new name?

The Basso family has quite a surprise as they awaken to find a Mama Bear and her five darling cubs frolicking in the welcome oasis of their backyard. Even bears need to cool off! They had the further bonus of all the kids play equipment; enjoying the swing set and the little slide.
We get to listen to the audio of the family’s toddler Sophie and her parents react to the bear shenanigans. It’s really great to see the parallel of the mama bear leading her cubs and Mama Basso setting the positive tone for the ‘goings on’ as both Sophie and her dad alternate in their upset over the invasion. Sophie wants the police to take care of the situation as she cries “They took my floatie!”
Mama Basso’s calm narration as she reframes the situation for both Sophie and Dad, telling them, “Let the animals enjoy themselves”, is just delightful. She is filled with wonder watching the bear family play, except when they start mangling her expensive float. Little Sophie is pretty territorial about the invasion of her stuff, but can’t help but enjoy some of the bear family’s antics as her mom keeps spinning a positive note on this rare moment.
This video was so much fun to watch. The ongoing commentary of the Basso family is hysterical!
