    THRESHER SHARK Used “Tail-Slap” Against SARDINE! It’s Super Effective!

    Thresher sharks have prominent tails that scientists believe are used in hunting. Exactly how they use their tails to hunt was never well documented until recently. A new study analyzed footage from multiple hunting events to better understand just how the sharks go about slapping sardines. Fun fact: The sharks tail-slaps are so powerful they can release dissolved gasses out of the water into bubbles.

    European Pike Dies Trying To Swallow Fish Nearly As Big As It Is

    With the holidays still fresh in our mental rearview mirrors, most of us have some fairly fresh memories of sitting down to meals so big we had no business trying to consume them.

    Hunter Hospitalized After Being Mauled By Bear He Thought He’d Killed

    We'll admit it -- we've never really gotten the point of hunting. Driving way out into the woods to kill a thing when there are any number of fine grocery stores and restaurants just a short walk from home never really made much sense to us, and the sporting aspect always rang false because, well, you have a gun and the animals, by and large, do not. We do know one thing about hunting, though, neophytes though we may be: If you shoot a bear, you had best make certain it's dead, because if it's not, well, then it's just an angry bear. That's a lesson Oregon deer hunter Alex Machavo learned the hard way this weekend, when he was mauled by a bear he was pretty sure he'd killed.

    Common Aquarium Fish A More Badass Hunter Than Suspected

    Pelvicachromis taeniatus may sound like an exotic name, but you've probably seen these dwarf cichlids in your local aquarium before. The fish normally dwell in African rivers, but are also popular as fish in domestic aquariums. When they're being fed floating food pellets, though, one of their most interesting evolutionary developments is going to waste. It turns out these cichlids hunt with a highly developed sense of infrared vision.
