Tourists visiting the Thornybush Game Reserve in South Africa were treated to quite the show. An impala managed to barely escape from a pack of wild dogs, only to jump into a lake. That wasn't the end of the danger, though. A herd of hippos was waiting on the other side of the lake, but the quick fella avoided them too. The animal was so fast that we think it must have been a '68 impala....get it? View Now

Camping is a great way to get out and enjoy nature. Until nature decides it's had enough of you, that is. Tourists were camping in Botswana when a pack of elephants figured it was time for the campers to leave, and if there's one thing we know about elephants, it's that you don't argue with them ever. The people immediately got in their cars, and when one of them backfired, the elephants backed off. View Now

So the rescuers carefully removed the babies, and pretty much instantly, momma was panicking. She didn't have to worry, though. View Now

Nothing's says "clean" like a nice, fresh dirt bath! As odd as it may appear to us humans, it's actually in the zebra's instinct to rub on the ground like that. It protects their striped coat and helps remove parasites that could be harmful. Of course, whenever we want to roll in the dirt, people say it's gross! View Now

Let's play a guessing game. (Sorry Sacramentans, you have to sit out for this one because you might already know the answer!) What are those thousands of little jumping beads at the base of this oak tree? If you say monster eggs, you're close! They are jumping oak galls, seed-like balls that oak trees form around wasp larvae. It sounds like nightmare fuel, but don't worry. The wasps that grow are harmless and smaller than a housefly. Still, that monster egg guess wasn't far off from the freaky truth! View Now

It's crazy how some things are just instinctual for animals. For buffalos, climbing isn't one of those things. Folks at Yellowstone National Park spotted a family of buffalo climbing up a hill, but their baby was having a tough time. Apparently, buffalo have to learn by doing with nothing but encouragement from mom and dad.
