A fishing charter in New Zealand recently got to experience “Jaws” in real life.

As one of the fishermen reels in his line, he notices the fish is actually half-eaten, and just seconds later, a giant great white shark pops up to finish what he started.

“Did you see that?” he shouts.

The video was uploaded to Captain Bucko’s Fishing Charters Facebook page on March 9, and in the comments the company says it’s the first great white they’ve seen in the Bay of Islands, an area off the northern coast of the country.

Looks like they’re gonna need a bigger boat.

Note to self: Don’t go swimming in Brazil.

Joao Antonio Cruz Junior recently uploaded a video to YouTube of him feeding some piranhas in a river.

It looks pretty calm until he tosses in a hunk of meat, and then all hell breaks loose.

Watch as these water demons tear their food to shreds, and then never go anywhere near this place ever because they will ruthlessly kill you and gnaw on your bones.

This crazy 3-year-old monkey enjoys pulling a wool hat over her head to blind herself and running around until she hits something.

Pretty standard monkey business.

She’s one of four gibbons that live at the Monkey Island Rescue in Greenwood, Missouri, which houses over 250 rescued animals.

Her owner, Dana Savorelli, says she’s been playing this game for several years and came up with it on her own.

“You have to wonder about the level of intelligence that is being processed,” he says.

A couple of raccoons recently put on a show for an unsuspecting family, and they caught whole the whole dirty deed on video.

The kids don’t quite seem to know what’s going on, and one of them thinks the animal is performing the Heimlich maneuver.

“Whoa they’re wrestling,” says one of the boys.

“They’re doing more than wrestling, I think,” replies the dad.

An octopus recently tried and failed to make a break for it at the Seattle Aquarium.

The 8-legged beast climbed up his tank and nearly made it over the edge before a member of the staff thwarted his plans.

He was probably just hungry and headed for the crab tank. Or he was jealous of some his cellmates who were recently granted their freedom.

A few weeks ago, the aquarium successfully mated Franklin and Hazel who met on an octopus “blind date” before releasing them back into the wild.

Here’s video footage of the two being set free below a pier.

They’re coming.

Octopuses are climbing out of their cages, koalas are walking the streets like humans and now lions have learned to break into cars. Pretty soon they’ll be behind the wheel, and then it’s game over.

This video of a family in South Africa is freaking everyone out, and rightly so, as one of these giant cats casually walks over to them and figures out how to open the car door with its teeth.

This could just be revenge for all the delicious hipster children and bros who have ben taunting them in videos for our amusement.

A lion in San Diego also recently gave a speech to zoo-goers, which must have been a call for action to lions around the world.

This clip was filmed last year, but has gone vial this week with over 4 million views.

Cool? Yes. Terrifying? Yes.

Essex photographer Martin Le-May captured this epic moment on Monday, in which a weasel is soaring on the back of a woodpecker. It was Tweeted out by birder/wildlife photographer Jason Ward where it quickly went viral and had many people wondering if it was real or photoshopped. It’s apparently very real.

As we walked we heard a distressed squawking and I saw that flash of green. So hurriedly I pointed out to Ann the bird and it settled into the grass behind a couple of small silver birch trees. Both of us trained our binoculars and it occurred that the woodpecker was unnaturally hopping about like it was treading on a hot surface. Lots of wing flapping showing that gloriously yellow/white colour interspersed with the flash of red head feathers. Just after I switched from my binoculars to my camera the bird flew across us and slightly in our direction; suddenly it was obvious it had a small mammal on its back and this was a struggle for life.

He added that the woodpecker managed to get away, while the weasel wandered off into the grass.

Real or not, you can’t put a picture like that online and expect to walk away meme-free.

Here are some of the best responses from Twitter of the #WeaselPecker:
