Bird Steals 'Egg Cam' And Films Breathtaking Aerial Shots Of Penguin Colony

Filed under: BirdsAmazingPenguin

A falcon stole an egg shaped hidden camera and took it out to get some amazing shots!

This is so cool! And it all happened by chance!

A falcon was scavenging near a colony of penguins when he spotted a lone egg.

All the other eggs had hatched so this was a rare delicacy!

Except there was a reason it was the only egg left…

It was an egg shaped camera! It captured all sorts of incredible video of the falcon rolling the egg around.

Until the bird actually picked up the egg in its talons and shot a breathtaking aerial view of the penguin colony as he flew over them.

This bird is a pretty darn good cameraman!

Check out the incrediballs footage AFTER THE JUMP!!

9000 Penguin Colony Has First Contact With Humans In Antarctica!

Filed under: Science!Cuteness!CrazzzzyWildlifePenguin

HUMANS?!?!?! What are THEY doing here!?!?!?!

A colony of 9000 penguins…count it…9000 PENGUINS…made its first contact with humans when a group of explorers found them in Antarctica.

Expedition leader Alain Hubert and two others rode snowmobiles across the icy continent to where they believed the penguins were living. Satellite images caught the colony in 2009 but there was no proof until the expedition.

The penguins were discovered in December and the team recorded video of the Emperor penguins!

Check out this mega colony (above) RIGHT NOW!!!

Laziest Walrus Colony You'll Ever See!

Filed under: Walrus

Sleep. Yawn. Sleep.

That's pretty the much the life these walruses want!

But wait, you can't forget about scratching either! LOLz!

Watch as these lazy walruses lounge about on the beach, enjoying a day under the sun.

To be honest, we're kinda jelly…

Her Majesty The Termite Queen

Filed under: InsectsDisgusting!Bugs

Life as a termite queen is a piece of cake, workers clean you, constantly fix your nest and wait on you hand and foot… as long as you don't mind having a normal upper body and 4-inch long pulsating (yuck) egg factory of a lower body.

Throughout the course of her life a termite queen will lay literally millions and millions of eggs.

Gross.

Check out the above video to get a close up look inside of a termite nest.

Will Mars Be A Vegan Planet?

Will Mars Be A Vegan Planet?

Vegans in space!

A rocket producer called SpaceX recently announced they're planing on flying people to Mars to make a human colony. We know what your thinking — What will they eat??

Okay, it's not the first thing that came to our mind either. But the people at PETA were all over it! They're petitioning that Mars should be an all-vegan planet!

The animal rights group sent out a press release saying:

“the Martian colony is an opportunity to make a kind civilization in which humans don’t exploit other beings. And since the animal agriculture industry is toxic to human health and to the environment, an all-vegan civilization would ensure that the new Martian citizens would have long and healthy futures.”

Hmm… that's IS something to think about.

Even if their dream of a vegan-friendly planet doesn't come true, we think it's awesome the PETA's goals don't end at home. Looks like they won't stop till the whole universe is rid of animal cruelty!

What do you think of an all-vegan planet? Tweet us UR thoughts HERE!

With Global Warming Has A Surprising Effect On Penguin Populations

Filed under: Science!EndangeredPenguin

some penguins thrive in warmer weather

We have some good news and some bad news…

Climate change has created a paradise for some pack ice penguin colonies and a purgatory for others, but the long-term fate of all Adélie and emperor penguins seems sealed, as relentless warming eventually pulls their rug of sea ice out from under them.

Adelie penguins colonies - located at the northern fringe of Antarctica, in the Antarctic Peninsula - have collapsed as an intrusion of warmer seawater shortens the annual winter sea ice season.

In the past three decades, the Adélie population on the peninsula, has fallen by almost 90 percent. The peninsula’s only emperor colony is now extinct.

But in the Ross Sea a reverse trend is occurring: Winter sea ice cover is growing, and Adélie populations are actually thriving. The Cape Royds colony grew more than 10 percent every year.

Across Ross Island, the Adélie colony at Cape Crozier (one of the largest known, with an estimated 230,000 breeding pairs) has increased by about 20 percent.
