Don't Bring A Broom To A Raccoon Fight

Don't Bring A Broom To A Raccoon Fight

Sometimes, even wild animals make us go "aww". Whether it's a biological response to something that reminds us of human babies or maybe we're just weird, but something switches off in our heads and we do really stupid things to these "cute", "adorable" and "huggable" animals. Like, please, guy with a broom—don't get between a raccoon mom and her kits! via ViralHog View Now
Croc Hide-And-Seek With Coyote Peterson

Croc Hide-And-Seek With Coyote Peterson

Crocodiles and their alligator cousins are never to be taken lightly. We always hope people give these big lizards their space and take extra care. That said, it's a good thing our friend Coyote Peterson and the Brave Wilderness crew are pros at dealing with wild animals because they're waking the dragon (AKA hibernating American Crocodile) in the name of science. That giant mama crocodile just wasn't having it! We can't really blame her for being grumpy, though. View Now
The Epic Sacrifice Behind This Flood Rescue Is Heartbreaking

The Epic Sacrifice Behind This Flood Rescue Is Heartbreaking

The same weather patterns that bring drought to the U.S. drench Asia. But while we can conserve water, some of the world's most unfortunate people drown in violent, unstoppable monsoon flooding each year. Our hearts go out to this likely-widowed elderly Chinese woman, whom rescuers found neck-deep in floodwaters tied to a tree. The catch? The DIY ropes were her husband's clothes, which he'd tied just before he was swept away in the ultimate act of love. View Now
Fearless Daredevils Chasing Waterfalls In Wingsuits

Fearless Daredevils Chasing Waterfalls In Wingsuits

These wingsuit pilots are crazy. If you dream of flying too, it looks like Switzerland is the place to be. First off, Chris Byrnes takes flight in a wingsuit and stays close to the mountainside. Then, he gets splashed in the face. No, those aren't tears rolling down his helmet. The droplets of water are from flying through a waterfall.  View Now
Seagulls At Their Scariest And Quirkiest

Seagulls At Their Scariest And Quirkiest

If there's one thing you learn today... don't feed seagulls! AJ learns the hard (and funny) way that a seagull always invites his friends to the buffet. The seven-year-old quickly realizes he's in over his head and makes an escape down the beach, but his aggressive dinner guests are persistent as only seagulls can be. Legend has it he's still running. View Now

You'll Never Guess What Civic-Minded Guy Does To Roof & How The Robot Takeover Starts

Every entrepreneur knows marketing is everything. Without a pitch, you've got no gas! For this creative guy from Sioux Falls in South Dakota, an empty roof means an empty canvas. Of all the things he could write, this civic-minded resident has a friendly message for the thousands who fly directly over his roof every day. He's basically running a private marketing campaign for Sioux Falls! We've never cared about $5 pizza specials until we saw this hilarious roadside robot replace the human sign flipper. View Now
These Two Raccoons Are Basically 'Unstoppable'

These Two Raccoons Are Basically 'Unstoppable'

Sometimes, even wild animals make us go "aww". Whether it's a biological response to something that reminds us of human babies or maybe we're just weird, but something switches off in our heads and we do really stupid things to these "cute", "adorable" and "huggable" animals. Like, please, guy with a broom—don't get between a raccoon mom and her kits! Thumbs up to this second fam for putting a nice thick window in between them and their friendly neighborhood raccoon before the fun starts. View Now
Nostalgic Breeze Through A Century Of Body-Painted Swimsuit Fashion

Nostalgic Breeze Through A Century Of Body-Painted Swimsuit Fashion

Picture your grandma in one of these! This wonderful swimwear lineup from MODE took us all the way back to 1916, when all the bad girls were showing off their scandalous calves. We've seen similar fashion shows before but we're blown away by the creative body paint twist and the insane level of detail that goes into each swimsuit. Makes you wonder where swimwear fashion will be a century from now! View Now
A Grand View Of A National Park

A Grand View Of A National Park

Majestic mountains and spectacular skies make this video look like it's from another world, but all of this can be found at the Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming. To capture this beauty, Will Pattiz and Jim Pattiz spent nearly a month filming in Jackson Hole Valley. It's part of the More Than Just Parks project, where their goal is to show the wonders of each national park. In honor of the U.S. View Now

Adorably Spooky Tarantula Hatchlings & Stingray Fever Hits Paddleboarder

These tiny, ghostly Pinktoe Tarantulas just a week old may grow up into those big, hairy adults you arachnophobes love to squash but these itsy-bitsy cuties have stolen our hearts. You won't mistake them for anything else but spiders but these little babies are so tiny and smooth they hardly even look scary! This insane fever of soaring Manta Rays (yes, "fever" is actually the correct way to describe a group of stingrays) is one more reason to visit beautiful Cabo in Mexico. This Paddleboarder will never forget his surprise encounter.  View Now

We Want To Be This Beautiful Man's Gum - Model Joins RTM Hosts

We've been chewing gum wrong because it NEVER looks this good. Props to the insane good looks and bedroom eyes of Donald James--the up-and-coming male model of the hour and more casually known now as the Hot Mentos Man.

Campers' Reaction To Hungry Bear Will Shock You

Campers' Reaction To Hungry Bear Will Shock You

Most sensible campers run away SCREAMING from a surprise bear encounter. In Mother Russia, you simply spoon-feed it porridge and berries until he's friendly! Turns out Stepan is a trained animal actor and has basically the same relationship with this family most have with a dog—snuggling and back-scratching included! This bizarre twist makes this family sound even more awesome and also a little bit crazy to keep a full-grown teddy bear (albeit trained) this close to children. View Now
Eccentric Mother Nature Is At It Again

Eccentric Mother Nature Is At It Again

Just when scientists start to think they understand the planet, bizarre, unexplainable events "pop up" to humble them... sometimes literally! These "bubbles" on the Siberian tundra are formed when melting permafrost releases massive amounts of CO2 and methane. Scientists are alarmed because, as its name leads us to believe, permafrost NEVER normally melts.  We're treated to an unusual "twist" on a common sight when a swirling dust devil hits a field of freshly cut hay in the UK.

Baby Elephant Adopts Darrick The Sanctuary Volunteer

Where Darrick Thomson is, KhamLha his elephant big sister can't be far behind! This odd but heartwarming friendship, first shared by ElephantNews, started when Darrick began volunteering at the Elephant Nature Park in Thailand and met the infant elephant. From that time forward, the two were INSEPARABLE! KhamLha's now a teenager (in elephant years), but she still coddles and leads Darrick around like momma elephants usually parent their youngsters.

Boaters Rescue Tiny Struggling Fawn

Boaters Rescue Tiny Struggling Fawn

Our moms always told us that if you help any kind of baby wild animal, it'll have "people smell" on it and its mom will reject it. Fortunately, this untrue urban myth (sorry, Mom!) doesn't stop these Lake Buchanan boaters in Texas from intervening when they see two tiny fawns struggling to keep up with their mom in the middle of the lake. Don't worry, there's a fairy-tale ending to this family drama! via ViralHog View Now
The Netherlands Just Kissed Traffic Congestion Goodbye

The Netherlands Just Kissed Traffic Congestion Goodbye

Let's be honest, the only time we appreciate traffic lights is when we see green. Thanks to a groundbreaking top-to-bottom redesign of traffic systems in the Dutch town of 's-Hertogenbosch, it might be ALL you see. Using complex algorithms and weight sensors on every street, traffic signals can now track literally every vehicle on the road and adjust to accommodate the EXACT flows of traffic. View Now
Stunning 4K Time-lapse Footage of Noctilucent Clouds Captured in Denmark

Stunning 4K Time-lapse Footage of Noctilucent Clouds Captured in Denmark

Photographers traveled to Denmark to capture noctilucent clouds on camera. Due to the Earth's elliptical orbit during the summer months, the mesosphere cools and small water particles freeze forming small ice crystals. This process creates these beautiful noctilucent clouds. The stunning time-lapse 4k footage was recorded in Denmark.  View Now
Folks Got More Than They Bargained For During Water Activities

Folks Got More Than They Bargained For During Water Activities

This storied Alaskan rafting guide has only ever lost a SINGLE rafter overboard. Whatever rapid they just went over in the Nenana River must have been insane because count the bobbing heads--there's SEVEN people in the water. The most our freezing and battered friends can do is try to avoid all those dangerous rocks shooting towards them before they're finally rescued by the two rafters who managed to stay afloat. Things could've been worse... at least there wasn't a BEAR swimming beside them, which is exactly what happens in the second video.  View Now
