She looks at you crazy, but don’t take it personally! She’s just a little confused with all the attention she has been getting recently. Meet Heidi the cross-eyed Opossum, a magnificent marsupial creature who has recently been taken in at the Leipzig Zoo in Germany.
We’ve covered our Arctic bear buddies before when we looked at 10 facts about these magnificent creatures. Now we’ll take a look at what these guys get up to in their daily lives to survive this harsh environment. Known as the Sea Bear, this white bundle of snow flakes is the only bear that spends so much time in and around the water. Unlike its cousins, Polar Bears mainly eat goodies that come from the sea. The hearty goodness of Seals, Walrus, Whales, Sea-birds, Kelp and Fishies make up most of its diet. For an Apex predator there’s no better feeling than showing who rules the Arctic.
Check out this Video, it’s a Shocker! On the banks of the Amazon river some Brazilian guys have managed to catch an Electric Eel after a bit of afternoon fishing, while one guy stays with the catch his friend goes off to fetch a knife to cut the line and let the eel go. In the mean time a Caiman turns up who was quite pleased to see that someone had caught a little fishy for him. But the Caiman then makes the mistake of taking a bite out of the Electric Eel who then turns on the power and shocks the Caiman and kills it. Goes to show there’s no such thing as a free lunch. He won’t be making that mistake again!
Check out this amazing Octopus! It’s like a crazy contortionist twisting and turning and slipping into all kinds of crazy shapes. It is well known that animals can change their colours or behaviour (mimicry) to fend of predators or fool prey but this nimble octopus is one of the only creatures able to change its shape as well!
