Gotta eat the booty like elephant butt?

One curious hyena got the surprise of its life after finding a dead elephant carcass and shoving its head inside the elephant's anus.

It is actually a common scenario for predators to start devouring an animal starting with the booty. But in this case, the hyena maybe should have started elsewhere.

"He got a little bit of a scare from that," says one of the scientists in the video.

Yes, yes he did. We are all scared of elephant buttholes now.

Nature, y'all.

It's tough to believe this isn't some airbrushed design on a 1990s shirt. The world can pull out some crazy beautiful things sometimes.

This group of humpback whales bask in the northern lights of Norway in a super peaceful swim along the coast.

According to the video's description:

This Spectacular footage of a group of humpback whales swimming under the northern lights off the coast of Norway was shot by Norwegian cameraman Harald Albrigtsen, who works for the Norwegian media company NRK.

Large gatherings of whales like this are common in the waters off Norway, and this time of year is prime time to see the northern lights in the country.

The lights most frequently appear between September and March.



Thanks, Earth. This is great.

We can never get enough of the truly awesome spectacle of nature's destruction.

That's where this new video showing some lightning rattling the sky in one of Patagonia's beautiful volcanoes.

Early this year we were treated to a another dramatic showing when the Calbuco volcano spewed an ocean of ash and smoke into the atmosphere.



Nature is so cool.

Porsche Indrisie was watching a little crab just chill out on the rocks in Yallingup, Australia when terror struck.

An octopus shot out of the water and quickly dragged the creature beneath the surface.

Indrisie captured the entire moment on video, and you can hear her screams of horror as she witnessed the attack.

Who knew these 8-legged beasts could move so fast? Even sharks are no match for them.

Be afraid, be very afraid.

A pack of 14 lions was recently caught on camera surrounding a 1-year old elephant at the Norman Carr Safaris Chinzombo Camp in Zambia by journalists on safari.

Odds were not in this baby elephant's favor, but thanks to some quick wit and a nearby stream, it was able to escape and reunite with its herd.

The safari guide was as shocked as everyone else. "In the 30-plus years I have been a safari guide in Zambia at the Luangwe Park, never have I seen anything like this," he told the Post.
