This Hyena

This Hyena

This looks like a crazy boss fight

I imagine that's how Danny Trejo would look if he was a hyena.

“FIND THE HALFLINGS! BRING THEM TO ME!”

Hyenas are just badass . They're like the most dangerous parts of dogs and cats in one weird body.

Edit: and they give birth through pseudo penises!

Don't wake up a Hippo

Thought I was about to watch that lion's head get exploded.

That lioness had absolutely no idea the hippo was following her. Crazy how a 3500lb can still be relatively light on their feet.

No shit, I really thought it was gonna get its neck broken and drop dead to the ground

The lioness got her mouth broken and died two days later.

Elephant crushed by a fallen Baobab tree becomes meal for lionesses. Elephants denude Baobabs to get to the moisture filled wood pulp

Great picture.

Absolutely brutal to be crushed by a tree, I imagine that elephant didn't meet with a swift or merciful death. One thing for sure, its body won't go to waste.

Teenage males often leave their herd to seek out a new one, this helps diversity the genetic pool. They sometimes meet up with other lone males and form a bachelor herd.

Bye bye Mr. Pinchy

I guess that’s one way to resolve a conflict.

A spider eating a snake in Australia.

Well, my arachnophobia just increase by 25%.

Yeah, because I don't live in Australia

I live in Australia and unlike what most people think, the animals are actually pretty chill. So far I've seen koalas, kangaroos, wallabies, whales, dolphins, penguins, lizards, and birds. Nothing particularly dangerous.

I live in Melbourne and it's the small spiders you have to worry about, white tails and red backs (and that being said white tails hurt but aren't as venomous as people say and red backs are few and far between in Victoria) the bigger spiders like what we call daddy long legs (my Latin is rusty but I think it's Mr long legidius mackdaddius) are large and keep your home free of the dangerous small spiders like white tails. Queensland has bird catching spiders and larger spiders, but is that climate not worth the risk?

Fleshlight

Everything is a fleshlight if you are brave enough

People always have questions about this one: those things are called conical papillae, and they are pieces of keratinized tissue. Keratinized just means containing lots of keratin: keratin is the main component of hair and nails and is very tough. These things are designed to be tough and rigid to help the turtle swallow one of its very common prey items, jellyfish: the papillae are oriented in a way that helps to direct the prey down the turtle's throat.

Other critters have papillar similar to this for eating different food items. Cattle are a good example with smaller papillae in their mouths, adapted for protecting their mouth from tough plant matter.

What's he do when he gets a popcorn kernel stuck under one of those?
