A hotel manager in Vermont got a bit of a shock when he came across a bear that had wandered into the hotel and was strolling along the hallway. The quick-thinking manager pulled out his phone and captured footage of the animal as it had a good look around. Fortunately, no guests came in contact with bear, so all’s well that ends well, but things really could have taken a turn for the worse.
Back in June an innocent Pilot whale died and washed ashore on the coast of Thailand. What was the cause of death? The unfortunate whale has eaten 80 plastic bags or 17 pounds of polythene because the world’s oceans are filling up with plastic.

Unfortunately, the whale regurgitated a bunch of plastic bags and then died.

This hilarious video was shot at the San Antonio Zoo in Texas and shows three massive WWE wrestlers trying to take on a young lion in a furious game of tug of war. The crowd cheers the three wrestlers as they do their best to beat the young lion. The wrestlers can be seen pulling hard on the rope which fed through into the lion enclosure. On the other side of the glass you can see the young lion holding on to the rope with an iron clad grip refusing to budge even an inch despite the best efforts of the wrestlers.
A small herd of elephants living in a sanctuary in Thailand went completely nuts after their handlers allowed them to leave their enclosure so they could greet an orphan calf that had been rescued. The herd of elephants resides at the Elephant Nature Park in Chiang Mai and upon their release they speed-walked their way to a barn where the baby elephant was receiving care.
Most people tend to behave unconsciously whenever they are feeling a little uncomfortable. Some people tend to yawn, whilst others will cover their face. In some instances, people will do both when the situation is extremely awkward. It would seem that baby elephants are not that different from humans and also exhibit behaviours whenever they feel nervous, insecure or uncertain.
This video will break your heart because it shows the devastating impact of deforestation on wildlife. The dramatic footage captures an orangutan that seems as if he is trying to fight off a bulldozer razing his home to the ground in the middle of a forest. Deforestation is taking place at an astonishing pace in Indonesia and that is having some profound implications.

A few months ago, Cody Wabiszewski decided to swap his desk job for a boat in Florida. The one-time aerospace engineer no longer sits staring at a computer screen all day but instead spends his time working at a dive shop and uses his days off to go scuba diving off the Florida Keys. Mr Wabiszewsk says the choice was simple, he really did not dig the cubicle life and prefers to be out on a boat everyday and has even obtained his captain’s license recently.

Recently a rather remarkably rare spectacle took place about a mile off the coast of Western Australia that was captured on video. A drone captured footage of sharks and a saltwater crocodile engaged in a feeding frenzy side by side on a 50-foot humpback whale carcass. It is believed that this is the first time ever that sharks and crocs have been documented feeding together. Dr Austin Gallagher a scientist who has been studying sharks for more than a decade says he has never seen anything like this and it is incredibly rare to see two species overlapping.
Recently the Smithsonian National Zoo and Conservation Biology Institute released an extremely touching video of a mama gorilla cradling her new born child. Calaya a 15-year female gorilla gave birth to her son who has been named Moke according to the zoo. That by itself was quite the achievement since it is the first birth of a male Western lowland gorilla as the zoo in nearly a decade.
