I've never seen a lion act like that before. I still wouldn't trust them though. Things do go south and I'm not talking about just lions. There are always stories involving Lions and Chimps that are the same way. Been part of a family for 20 years....very loving and affectionate until that one fateful day when they go primal and return to their natural instinct and tear off someones face. The Lion tamer/owner is very trusting. I for one would never allow myself the luxury of being so trusting with an animal bigger than me.

It definitely takes a certain kind of person to attempt that.

What the Hell Is This Animal and Why Is It Moving Like That?

Turns out its a really big Basket star, a member of a group of echinoderms called Brittle stars.

Don't be confused though. Brittle stars, which are sometimes also called Serpent stars, aren't actually the same as the starfish you're probably more familiar with. But they are related. Most of the starfish you've seen in aquarium touch-tanks are members of the taxonomic class Asteroidea, but Brittle stars - there are over 2000 species of them - are called Ophiuroidea.

For context, humans are members of the class that includes all mammals: dogs, horses, cows, tigers, squirrels, bats, and all the rest. That's how broad these classifications are. Brittle stars may look like Sea stars, but they've been evolving separately for more than 500 million years. The last common ancestor you share with a frog wasn't born for another 150 million years after that!

Rare Sea Monster Caught on Film

Quote
research team conducting a dive in Monterey Bay off the coast of California have captured first-ever video of a rarely-seen denizen of the deep called the black seadevil.
DCI

The creature was spotted this week in the dark, deep waters 1,900 feet below the surface by researchers with the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute.

"We've been diving out here in the Monterey Canyon regularly for 25 years, and we've seen three," MBARI Senior Scientist Bruce Robinson told the San Jose Mercury News on Friday.

Robinson said a luminescent "fishing pole" projecting from the anglerfish's head is a glowing lure to attract prey.

Robinson told the paper they captured the fish to study, but don't know how long it will survive.

MyFox Los Angeles posted the institute's two-minute-long video on its website, while pointing out that although the black seadevil seems menacing as its swims towards the camera, it is only about 3.5 inches long.

Ack! You beat me to the punch again. Just saw this in my YouTube/Roku feed. This is bizarre to say the least. It's a frickin' floating head!!!

What I heard afterwards was the sheep know where to hit on any of it's opponents. In fact, sheep will head but just about anything. So watch yourself around one.

Gahhhhhhh!!!!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F5fZu-1bt6Y

This here video of an octopus exploding out of the shallows, moonwalking on land, grabbing a crab, and pulling it back underwater was shot in Australia just days ago, which means that there's a good chance this very octopus and others like it are still alive, which means that you and I and all of our loved ones are in danger.

The whole staff of Deadspin was terrified when first gazing upon this octopus walking across the ground like an eight-legged, coked-up, murderous person, but soon, then more skeptical of us paused, asking if an octopus could really kill and eat a crab, or if this was a case of fake thuggery. As it happens, octopi have beaks—not unlike one you would find on a bird—that they use to puncture holes in the shells of, say, crabs, or mollusks, or babies, or whatever else they want to eat at the time. They then inject venom into their prey, causing paralysis. And then they eat their prey alive by sucking out their innards.

Yeah, I saw this last week and I found it fascinating and it got me thinking for the sake of asking a valid question: What would happen if there was a tiny baby sitting in the same spot. I ask you to take the "what parent in their right mind would sit a baby there" angle out of the equation and just go with it. Would an Octopus still attack due to "size" or would it know it's human and avoid? I seriously want to know the answer to this!!!!
