Sharks Are The New 'Bear Hugs' & Eagle Steals Sad Otter's Lunch

WARNING: Don't try this at home or else you might be on the menu. Most shark fishing enthusiasts prefer some distance between them and their toothy ferocious catch. These sissy rules don't apply to Zane Rutt! After a hard fishing fight from his perch on the beach, Zane reels in his exhausted hooked quarry to the shallows. But because he doesn't fancy Shark Fin soup (the meal driving overfishing worldwide), he bravely wades into the water for a risky shark-hug to unhook and release the fish. Can anyone say "profile pic"? Then, an unlucky Canadian otter didn't have a choice when it came to her catch-and-release. It was her or the fish! View Now

Lucky Encounter Saves Strangled Sea Turtle's Life

Even though fishing enthusiasts and commercial fishers cast their deep-sea lines for marlin, tuna and shark, their actual body count can be much higher than anything they eat or even hook. Every catch that "gets away" or tangled line that's cut ends up floating in the vast sea until it perhaps wraps around a sea creature like this nearly strangled sea turtle that a good samaritan research team in Costa Rica stumbles upon just in time.

Paraglider Takes Relaxing In The Sky To A Whole New Level

And now for your daily dose of "huh?" Paraglider Hasan Kaval has basically created a living room in the sky by fastening a couch, a TV and even a lamp to his parachute. Based on the guy's calm demeanor, you'd never guess he was soaring hundreds of feet up in the air — but then again, the level of chill required to kick back on a flying couch without a harness in the first place is probably pretty high.
