Marine mammals in the Black Sea As per estimated and actual counts there live around 10.000 bottle-nose dolphins, 10.000 common dolphins as well as between 5.000 to 10.000 harbor porpoises in the Black Sea. More than 350 dead dolphins and harbor porpoises were found along the shore of the Ukraine in 2012 alone. More information to be had under the ProWal homepage at: www.walschutzaktionen.de

Did you know any of these amazing and scary deep sea creatures? It's hard to believe these bizarre animals exist. Subscribe: http://goo.gl/9CwQhg 'Hatchet Fish' footage by Filmic Art : www.filmicart.com For copyright matters please contact us at: [email protected] Description: There is a vast world below the ocean that we have yet to discover in its entirety. While we seem to know nearly everything about the land, the sea still leaves much to be desired. As you go down into the depths of the ocean, you’ll notice a lot will change. For one, you’ll begin to be immersed in darkness. Second, the pressure will change. So, the creatures that have been discovered deep in the oceanic depths are quite different biologically, and they can be quite terrifying to look at. But once we begin to understand them, we can start to learn more about our existence, and even come closer to curing diseases and solving some of the world’s most complex mysteries. However, the sea creatures that have been discovered recently have shown to be just downright creepy and terrifying. You probably recall the Angler Fish, especially if you’re seen the Disney movie, “Finding Nemo”. If you didn’t realize that this fish is the real deal, get ready for new additions to your nightmares. It wasn’t a work of fiction or some messed up fantasy of some Disney Imagineer. The fish that we see in this video is actually female, and the male is a small weakling, wandering the sea to find a female with her pheromones. The male then attaches itself to the female and becomes a parasite. Every part of the male merges with the female except for the testicles, which the female uses to impregnate herself. Jokes aside, this is quite a fascinating process despite how creepy it is. Similar to the angler fish is the Viper Fish, which has a natural extra attachment that illuminates in the darkness of the sea with the purpose of attracting prey. The blob fish is a creature that you wonder what God was smoking or shooting up when he decided to create the blob fish. This fish has no bones, and literally just hangs out on the ocean floor and hopes that food comes to its mouth. Whether you want to worship the blob fish for its epic level of laziness or wonder how in the world the species is still in existence with such an apathetic demeanor, it’s still creepy to look at. Then we have the goblin shark, which is pretty much like the underwater version of the alien from the movie “Alien” due to its protruding mouth. The goblin shark has a large snout and needle-like teeth that are sharp and deadly. For a completely random sea creature, we have the Christmas Tree Worms, which really look like tiny walking fir trees that come in different colors. The branches or hair-like appendages help them breathe as well as consume phytoplankton. Then we have the sea pig, which looks nothing like the pigs we have on land. But instead the sea pig is a multi-tubed foot sea creature that is closely related to the sea cucumber. It eats by pulling water and absorbing organic food. Quite innovative, even though it looks creepy. For more creepy sea creatures, check out the rest of the video for more.

From deep sea mysteries that were thought to be myths to a collection of animals that are on the brink of extinction here’s our group of the world’s rarest animals that still exist on our planet. Subscribe to Epic Wildlife http://goo.gl/6rzs5u Let's Connect -- http://www.epicadamwildlife.com/ -- http://www.facebook.com/epicadamwildlife -- http://www.twitter.com/epicwildlife -- http://gplus.to/epicwildlife Hairless Sun Bear Talking about this viral photo, which is good for clicks is uncomfortable. We don’t like to think about this creature suffering with serious diseases while people were marveling at it's unique appearance in a lighthearted way and comparing it to Gollum. The creature you see was a sun bear who was captured in January of 2015 by plantation workers. Unlike most sun bears she happened to be hairless, causing her unique, rare appearance. She seemed very old and was suffering from several parasites. Many of the poor creature's claws were cracked and broken. That picture is a still shot from a video of the bear, likely scared out of it's mind, trying to escape the metal cage in which it was being held by biting through it, while being surrounded by people taking pictures and, of course, the video. It's very hard to watch. Though authorities and veterinarians did their best to bring the creature back to good standing health she would end up passing away months later in early June 2015. Though constantly surrounded by them, she was never fully comfortable around humans. Sun bears live in the tropical forests of Southeast Asia. The palm oil industry has invaded and stripped this bear of their habitat, and today it’s a vulnerable species. Hainan (hi-nahn) Gibbon The Hainan Gibbon is an extremely rare mammal, perhaps the world’s single rarest. The most recent count found just two families and a total of 22 Hainan Gibbons in the wild. They are confined to Hainan, a small island off the southern coast of mainland China. Males and females are extremely different in appearance. As you can see males are almost completely black with white patches on their cheeks while females are golden in color with black spots. Their both slender which makes sense as they swing in the wild from tree to tree to get around. Roloway Monkey Out of all of the primates in Africa, the roloway monkey is among the most threatened. Despite the fact that they’re small, harmless and have awesome, long beards they’re often hunted and sold in the bushmeat trade. Also like so many creatures in the wild their habitat is disappearing as humans clear forests to make room for themselves. When studied in the wild researchers have found that they have a lifespan of twenty year. In captivity however they can live to the ripe old age of 30. Northern White Rhino One of two white rhino subspecies, the northern white rhino appears to have gone extinct in the wild. The last time they were spotted was in 2006 when four were seen. Experts have since reported no trace of them. Meanwhile, only three exist in captivity, this 44 year old male named Sudan who was caught in the wild when he was just three and two females who were born in captivity. They’re all held at the Dvur Kralove Zoo, a 180 acre facility in the Czech Republic. Giant Panda So we got into the sun bear a little bit while we were talking about that unfortunate hairless bear a little bit earlier. The sun bear as a species is one of the rarest bears, but not the rarest. That dubious distinction belongs to the Giant Panda an animal who is scant in numbers despite it's likeness being so famous and easily recognizable. Rough estimates state that just over 1,500 pandas remain on the planet. Luckily some reports have said that their numbers are increasing which is a welcome trend. As a matter of fact they were reclassified from being an endangered species to being vulnerable in 2016. Their habitat has been decimated and today they are confined to south central China. Before we get to our last rare creature we’d like to thank everyone out there for watching and giving feedback. Let us know how we’re doing and don’t forget to subscribe on your way out. Florida Panther There were once more Panthers playing hockey in Florida than there were roaming the wild. The Florida Panther was chosen as the state animal in 1982, and that decision was probably made to raise awareness about just how rare they were at the time. In the 70’s estimates had their numbers down to just 20 in the wild. Luckily though, conservation efforts reversed this trend, giving this animal a second chance at life in the proces. Estimates made earlier this year had their population at 230, which means there’s still work to be done, but it's a great start. Human encroachment started the Florida Panther’s decline. They were pushed to a corner of south Florida. This isolated population eventually began inbreeding, which as we know from ancient Egyptian royal families can cause all sorts of health problems.

From crazy rude bears, to the meanest smallest mammal alive, these are the 13 MEANEST Mammals on Earh ! Gray wolf -- It’s also known as the timber wolf, and is the largest existing member of its family, weighing up to 100 pounds. As an apex predator, it’s only real threats come from humans and tigers. The real power of canis lupus lies in their ability to coordinate in packs. Using complex systems of sounds and behaviors, they can stalk and chase down prey as large as moose and bison. They can cover dozens of miles a day and easily withstand temperatures as low as minus-40 F. Tasmanian Devil -- They’re found exclusively on the island of Tasmania in Australia. About the size of a small dog, they have a huge reputation as being extremely temperamental creatures. When threatened, they emit hellish screaming sounds, howling like the devil … which is where they get their name. Although they often eat carrion, these beasts are opportunistic hunters, and are known to take down prey the size of a kangaroo! Did you know the Tasmanian Devil is the world’s largest carnivorous marsupial … no wonder why it inspired the Warner Bros cartoon character! Hippos -- If you saw our video, “10 Things to do When Animals Attack”, you know that hippos are not to be trifled with. These beasts can weigh well over a ton and are known for their aggression. Because of that temperament and their size, they rarely serve as prey for other animals. They are known to charge and attack boats, and can capsize smaller vessels. In one case 13 people, including 12 children were killed when a hippo attacked a boat on the Niger River in Africa. Wolverine -- they’re the largest member of a family that includes weasels. Adult wolverines are around the size of a medium dog and resemble a bear. It’s a powerful and versatile predator, and usually hunts down medium sized mammals … but they’re known to take down adult deer that are several times larger than itself. Their strong jaws, sharp claws and thick hide have even emboldened them to steal food from the kill of a black bear! The Wolverine has such a fearsome reputation, that it serves as a mascot for many cities, teams and organizations. It even shares its name with one of the X-Men! Humans -- why include us on the list? Well, we not only turn our aggression toward each other, but toward other animals as well -- mammals or otherwise. In fact, a new report states that humans have taken out so many animals that the earth is on the verge of the first mass extinction since the age of the dinosaurs. A recent report claims that by the end of this decade, it’s possible that 70% of the world's amphibians, fish, reptiles, birds and mammals will have been wiped out. That’s pretty mean, right? Weasel -- Talk about looks being deceiving. Weasels can look cute and cuddly … but they’re also fearsome hunters. The creature in the picture is actually the creation of a taxidermist. And while that still-life might look frightening, the animals are scarier in real life. Their fast metabolisms compel them to kill and eat roughly half their body weight each day. They’re known to wrap themselves around prey, immobilize it, and puncture the spinal cord by delivering a single fatal bite to the back of the head. Did you know that the jaguar employs a similar tactic? Honey Badger -- Chances are, you’re already acquainted with this critter, what with all those Internet memes floating about. Its reputation as one of the world’s toughest and meanest mammals is well-earned, though. They’re known to endure hundreds of bee stings to get some honey, of which they’re quite fond … so fond of it, that they’ve been found in beehives stung to death. If seemingly trapped, the honey badger will savagely and fiercely attack any kind of animal regardless of size … that includes horses, cape buffalos and lions. Asian Black Bear -- This medium sized creature is also known as the moon bear and is largely found in the Himalayas and other parts of Asia. They can be cautious and shy … but they’re considered more aggressive toward humans than American black bears. These animals have been known to attack without provocation and mutilate victims … In one case a black bear tore off a man’s face. And in 2013, a group of Asian black bears attacked a village in India, killing 8 people and injuring more. Upon attacking, the bear rears up on its hind legs then knocks its victim over with its paws so it can strike the arms or head. Their extreme aggression is thought to stem from having to share territory with tigers, because the big cats will take them for prey.

From Coconut Crab to Pink Fairy Armadillo and even Giant Isopod here are 21 World's Weirdest Animals, would you love to own one? Subscribe to Talltanic http://goo.gl/wgfvrr 10. Coconut Crab If you were hoping that the photos of these crabs are misleading, we’re sorry to disappoint you. The Coconut Crab is just as big and terrifying as it looks. At around 9 pounds and 3 feet long, the Coconut Crab is a monster. They are a type of hermit crab and, as their name suggests, eat coconuts. Their incredibly powerful claws are capable of climbing trees and picking up more than 60 pounds. 9. The Yeti Crab The Yeti Crab is a relatively new discovery, found in 2005 off of the coast of Antarctica. Because of their harsh habitat, the Yeti Crab has made some incredible adaptations. First, they live near vents of warm water. Meaning their living space is extremely cramped, with around 600 crabs per square meter. They also are blind, they actually have no eyes, because they live at depths of 8,500 feet. Finally, their defining characteristic: hairy arms and legs. The hair on their arms and legs is a breeding ground for bacteria, which they eat. This way, the Yeti Crab actually cultivates its own food, eliminating the need for hunting or foraging. 8. Echidna The echidna is as amazing as it is weird. Echidnas are one of two species of mammals who are capable of laying eggs, the other is a platypus. With beady eyes, short legs, a long snout, an even longer tongue, and a body covered in spines, the echidna might also take the cake for strangest mammal period. 7. Tufted Deer These heartwarming little deer stand at only 28-inches off the ground and are named after the wild tuft of black hair on their forehead. What makes this deer one of the strangest Bambis around? Their terrifying vampire teeth. The male deer grow intense canines with which they maul one another during mating season. 6. Sea Lamprey Lampreys are 100% the stuff nightmares are made of. These hideous creatures are more mouth than anything, which they use to latch on to other fish. Once they sink their rows of teeth into the body of another fish, they feed off blood and bodily fluids. These ghastly fish are native to the Atlantic Ocean, but are beginning to creep into the Great Lakes as well. 5. Giant Isopod This deep sea creepy crawly lives at depths of up to 7,000 feet beneath the surface. At these depths, the ocean is pitch black, so they have developed a reflective retina, much like cats, that makes their eyes appear to glow in the dark. Like giant squids, their huge size is part of a phenomenon called deep sea gigantism, which means creatures living at amazing depths tend to be much larger than their shallower cousins. In fact, these isopods average about 14-inches, but some specimens have been measured at over two and a half feet long. 4. Hagfish This sea creature which inhabits the Atlantic ocean is still as disturbing as it was 300 million years ago. Hagfish, or slime eels, are living fossils that have changed very little over the millennia. Their defining characteristic is their revolting ability to produce slime. Tons of it. When they feel threatened, their bodies secrete gallons of slime in minutes. In an effort to get people to appreciate the hagfish, there is a national holiday named after them in October. But it doesn’t come as a huge surprise that Hagfish Day is so close to Halloween. 3. Pangolin These endangered creatures look like a cross between a dragon and an anteater. Pangolins are covered in tough armor, made of thick keratin scales. When they feel threatened, they roll into a tight ball, making themselves impervious to harm. Pangolins can grow to be about 40-inches long, but in some cases, their tongue is actually longer than their entire body! These incredible mammals have also made a habit of carrying their newborn babies on their tail to keep them close. 2. Pink Fairy Armadillo This could very well be the cutest animal to make it on our list. Of all the species of armadillos, this one is the smallest, living up to its name. Pink fairy armadillos only grow to be about five inches long and weigh less than a pound. Unlike other armadillos, the pink fairy doesn’t use its shell as armor. It’s pastel pink covering sits on top of its fluffy white fur and is a way to keep the armadillo cool in the summers and warm in the winters. 1. Duck-Billed Platypus If the duck-billed platypus hadn’t earned the popular reputation of being the weirdest living thing on earth, we’d probably think it was a joke. In fact, when the platypus was discovered in the late 1700s, British scientists were convinced it was a prank being played by George Shaw. And can you blame them? The duck-billed platypus is a wild mixture of a little bit of everything: a duck bill, a beaver body, webbed feet, poisonous claws, and to top it all off, the thing lays eggs. Descriptions of this animal read like a sideshow attraction.

Ocean Quahog The Ocean Quahog, or Arctica Islandica, is a large bivalve that grows up to ten centimeters tall. Large populations can be found in the ocean waters around Iceland, but they live buried beneath the sea bed all across the Atlantic Ocean. They hold the record for being the longest known living creatures on our planet, with one specimen that was caught in 2006 thought to be about 507 years old. This means it would have been born in 1499. Despite their longevity, the Ocean Quahog has been put on the list of at-risk species of the North-East Atlantic Ocean because numbers have been plummeting. This has happened due to extensive fishing to send to the USA for the manufacture of clam chowder soup, increased pollution of the seas by plastic and chemical waste, and the destruction of their habitats by deep sea dredge fishing. 9. The Vaquita The Vaquita, a small species of porpoise, was only first discovered in 1958- but today finds itself as being the world’s rarest marine mammal and on the brink of extinction. They are native to the Gulf of California off the coast of Mexico, where large numbers used to gather, but numbers have severely fallen because of human activity in the area. A study in 1997 estimated a population in the region of only 600, but this fell to 100 in a similar survey in 2014 and most recently, in 2016, the total number is though to be around 30. That’s a population decline of over 92 percent since 1997, and means this glorious creature sadly doesn’t have much time left. Unlike other animals that are facing extinction because of hunting, the loss of Vaquita’s is mainly as a by-product of the fishing of an endangered fish called the Totoaba. This large, 300 pound fish is highly sought after for its swim bladder that is popular in Chinese medicine and, as a result, commands a high price. The gillnets that are used to catch the Totoaba also traps large numbers of Vaquita and has been the single most destructive factor towards Vaquita numbers. Despite the Mexican governments attempts to limit the fishing of the Totoaba for this reason, even banning the use of gillnets in 2015 for two years and setting up wildlife refuges, the porpoise has not been able to recover because there are still lots of trawlers using the nets illegally. 8. Javan Rhinoceros Rhinos are one of the more famous animals of the world that are endangered, but rather than the more well-known white and black Rhinos from Africa, the most at-risk type of the five different species is the Javan Rhinoceros. They used to be prevalent across south east Asia, but with the last Javan Rhino of Vietnam having been poached in 2010, the only known remaining ones all live in the Ujung Kulon National Park in Java, Indonesia. They are very similar in appearance to the closely related “Greater One-Horned Rhino” and are a dusky grey color with one horn that grows up to about ten inches long. The loose folds of their skin make them look like they have armor plating, and they are thought to live for between thirty and forty years. With only around 60 of these Rhinos left in the wild, and none in captivity, their future survival depends on the ability of park rangers to protect them from the threat of poachers- who hunt them for their valuable horns that are a valuable commodity across the region for their supposed medicinal properties.

The killer whale or orca (Orcinus orca) is a toothed whale belonging to the oceanic dolphin family, of which it is the largest member. Killer whales are found in all oceans, from Arctic and Antarctic regions to tropical seas. Killer whales have a diverse diet, although individual populations often specialize in particular types of prey. Some feed exclusively on fish, while others hunt marine mammals such as seals and dolphins. They have been known to attack baleen whale calves, and even adult whales. Killer whales are apex predators, as there is no animal which preys on them.

The ocean is full of mysteries, we have gathered a list of 11 of the scariest ocean predators.. that we know of today. Subscribe for weekly wacky videos and learn interesting facts about the world with awesome top 10 lists and other amazing videos. 5 - Leopard Seals - The Leopard Seal is a seal that can be found in the frigid waters of Antarctica. It gets its name from its black-spotted coat that resembles a leopard. Like their namesakes, Leopard seals are fierce predators. Of all the seals, they are the most formidable hunters, and the only ones that feed on warm-blooded prey. They can grow up to 12 feet long and use their powerful jaws and long teeth to prey on fish, squid, penguins, and even other seals! They will often wait underwater near an ice shelf and grab birds as they land on the water. 4 - Frilled Shark - The Frilled shark is a primitive looking shark found in the waters of the Atlantic and Pacific oceans, generally over the continental shelf and slope. It has been found lurking in depths over 5,000 feet. First discovered in the late 1800’s, this “living fossil” gets its name from the frilly or fringed appearance of its 6 gills and its resemblance to ancestors who swam with the dinosaurs. It has an eel like body which it uses to bend and lunge at prey like a snake. It swallows its prey whole and its many rows of teeth make it nearly impossible for anything to escape. It can grow over 6’ long. 3 - Lionfish - The Lionfish is a venomous fish which can be found in the Indian and Pacific Oceans. Its body consists of red, white, and black bands, and it is covered in long brightly colored venomous spines that make it appear like a pin cushion. The Lionfish can grow up to 17 inches long and weigh up to 3 pounds. They mostly prey on small fish, invertebrates, and mollusks, which they eat in one bite. Humans who have been pierced by one of its spines experience extreme pain, vomiting, fever, convulsions, dizziness, and breathing difficulties, sometimes resulting in temporary paralysis, heart failure, and even death in the very young and old. Despite the dangers, Lionfish are one of the most popular fish for home aquariums. 2 - Great White shark – Also known as the white pointer and the white death, the great white shark can be found near the coastal waters of all the oceans. What makes the great white shark so terrifying is its size. The largest of these sharks grow up to 20 feet and 4300 pounds. Typically the females grow up to 16 feet and the males up to 13 feet. The great white can live up to 70 years and is one of the longest living cartilaginous fish known today. The killer whale is its only known threat and can usually hold its own against that predator. The great white feeds on almost all other marine animals and, although humans aren’t their preferred meal, they will happily feed on humans if given the chance. The most reported unprovoked shark attacks on humans has been attributed to the great white shark. It’s this piece of information that the movie Jaws was based on a “ferocious man eating” great white shark. 1 - Killer Whales - Killer Whales, also known as Orcas, are a bit of a misnomer as they actually belong to the dolphin family, of which they are the largest members. Scientists believe their name came from a mistranslation of a Spanish name, for whale killer. They are found all over the world in oceans from the Arctic to the Antarctic. Killer Whales can grow over 30 feet long and weigh over 9 tons. Despite its size, the Killer Whales are very agile and its large size and strength make it one of the fastest marine animals, able to reach speeds of over 30 miles per hour. It also has one of the most distinctive black and white color schemes, which make it stand out from any other marine mammal. They have good eyesight and excellent hearing and can detect prey using their very sophisticated echolocation ability. Killer Whales prey on fish and other marine animals, including seals and even other dolphins. They have even been known to hunt together in pods to kill full grown whales. They sit on top of their food chain and have no known predators.

From the elusive mahi mahi, to the fast black marlin, these are the 15 FASTEST animals in the ocean Orca Whale -- also known as a Killer Whale, Orcas aren’t whales at all. They’re more closely related to dolphins. They’re found in oceans worldwide but seem to prefer the colder waters of the North Atlantic and Antarctica. Orcas have been clocked at speeds up to 30 mph, though they turn on an additional burst of speed when chasing certain prey. They have only one predator, and that’s humans. Swordfish -- This aptly named fish are known for their sword like bills. That, along with their streamlined shape, allows them to easily cut through the water. they can and can thrust and parry with the best of them. When leaping, they’ve been observed to reach 60 mph. Did you know The size of swordfish eyes can be the size of a softball? In 2012 one of those eyes washed up on a Florida beach and created a big mystery as to what kind of creature it belonged to. Ever wonder if maybe one swordfish poked out the eye of another swordfish? Pilot Whale -- These mammoth marine animals can weigh as much as 3 tons and males can reach up to 25 feet long. They tend to favor deep waters and are known to be intelligent and highly social, often forming in groups of 100. These whales are known for their deep diving ability, and prey on large squids. They’ve been clocked at 47 mph when leaping. Wahoo -- This fish is known for its great strength and speed, having been observed to attain speeds from 48 to 60 mph! No surprise it’s one of the fastest of all known fish. Their speed is enhanced by bladelike fins that allow it to slice through the water. They’re recognized for their aggression and for their teeth, which are razor-sharp. They’re known as excellent gaming fish and for their excellent taste when cooked. Yellowfin Tuna -- This species of Tuna can reach speeds up to 50 mph. Did you ever think a Tuna could swim that fast ... even Charlie Tuna? They have some heft, too weighing up to 440 pounds and measuring up to 8 feet in length. The Yellowfin Tuna is also known as one of the fastest and strongest predators in the open ocean. Sailfish -- With speeds up to 68 mph, the Sailfish ranks as one of the fastest marine animals. To be fair, that speed includes the Sailfish leaping into the air. It moves faster while leaping than it does while swimming. They’re recognized by their blue-gray coloring, and for their elongated, needlelike bill. Their name comes from the erectile dorsal fin that looks like a sail. At some 220 pounds and measuring 10 feet long, these creatures are pretty much built for speed. Did you know that if the Sailfish swam a 200-meter race, it would clock a time under 10 seconds! Michael Phelps is an Olympic gold medal swimmer and his best time was about 1.42 minutes, which works out to 4.7 mph. That would leave a lot of human swimmers all wet! Marlin -- This species of Marlin is found in the Indian and Pacific Oceans. The largest marlins have measured over 15 feet long and weighed over 1600 pounds. They’ve been clocked at speeds of up to 80 mph which would make them one of fastest of all fish. Bear in mind, that speed is an estimate, and refers to the speed with which hooked marlins can unwind fishing line. More often than not, the Marlins speed is estimated at 50 mph. They’re also a highly sought after game fish and are fished commercially. Atlantic Bluefin Tuna -- You thought the Yellowfin Tuna was big? Meet its cousin … this species of tuna can reach a massive size of 1500 pounds and measure up to 15 feet long … that’s some tuna. But despite its impressive size, this fish can reach speeds up to 45 mph! It turns on the jets when pursuing prey like red crab or anchovies … or escaping from fishermen who want to turn it into lunch! Humans -- Okay, so humans aren’t sea creatures. But we’re throwing in our noble species for the sake of perspective. How do humans rank against some of the fastest sea creatures in the world. Short answer: Not good. Even our fastest swimmers can manage a mere 5 miles per hour. So, obviously, humans will not rank anywhere amongst the fastest things in the ocean. But let’s not feel too bad … After all, humans are still faster than the Dwarf Seahorse. That slowpoke can only manage 0.01 mph … so, hey ... feel good about that! Mahi-Mahi or Dolphin Fish -- One of the most visually arresting fish in the sea, the Mahi Mahi Bears unique metallic green and blue colors with black, blue, or green spots. Its forked tail and sleek body allow it to reach speeds up to 40 mph. Did you know the name Mahi Mahi means ‘very strong’ in Hawaiian.

Check out these Animals Discovered In STRANGE Places! From crocodiles crossing the highway to animals stuck in bizarre places, this top 10 list of mysterious creature discoveries has some bizarre findings! Subscribe to World5List: http://goo.gl/cpJSA6 Check out our "Superpowers You Can Get RIGHT NOW!" video at: https://youtu.be/a6QmVdBTf0g Check out our "6 Places More Mysterious Than The Bermuda Triangle...?" video at: https://youtu.be/v9VarHk6_cY Check out our "8 Bizarre Things People Found in Their Pool" video at: https://youtu.be/gH7ywvBgXkE 10. Sea Lion in a High School Sea Lions are very clever creatures. They know how to communicate with one another, swim in expert ways, and avoid predators when necessary. But, in April of 2015, one sea lion decided to go off book, and then went to a place where it could go learn about itself. No, not a library, a high school. This happened at Imperial Beach in San Diego, California. 9. Pacific to Atlantic to Arctic When it comes to animal migration patterns, and where animals are "mostly found", scientists have a pretty good idea of what to expect. However, in the last decade or so, animals have been showing up in regions where they've never been seen before. Or at the very least, haven't been to in a very long time. 8. Octopus on a Mountain There are many things you expect to see when you're climbing a mountain. An octopus on a rock is not one of them. Yet, that's exactly what happened to travelers as they went up Scafell Pike, which is the tallest mountain in all of England. What's more, the octopus wasn't at the base of the mountain, or even on the path per se. Rather, the octopus was found a mere ten feet from the top of the mountain. Which makes you wonder just how the creature got up there. 7. Owl in a Pipe There's not much context for this picture, however, the picture speaks rather loudly when you look at it. This is indeed an owl, and one that is hiding inside of a pipe. Quite a perfect fit if you look close enough. 6. Zebras in Texas When you think about Africa, you no doubt think about the diverse state of wildlife that are there, including the horse known as a Zebra. If we're speaking technically, Zebras are only "naturally" born in Africa. However, the United States has a section of the state of Texas where Zebras actually live. 5. Horse in McDonalds There are certain rules for restaurants, and one of the biggest rules is that you can't bring in certain animals or pets into the building, even if you have permits to allow them. Well, for one woman in Whitefield, Greater Manchester in 2013, she decided to ignore the rule, but not without cause. 4. Alligator on a Golf Course In Englewood, Florida, you will find the Myakka Pines Golf Club. On the surface, it looks like any other golf course or club out there. But, in March of 2015, a very big event happened. Mainly, an alligator of impressive size wandered onto the course while people were playing golf. The people who first saw the gator immediately took a picture of it. 3. Shark on a Subway No, this is not a tale of a hammerhead shark, or a Mako, or a Great White Shark somehow ending upon a subway and terrorizing the passengers like a bad sci-fi movie. Rather, this is a tale of a rather small shark "somehow" ending up on the floor of a subway cart in New York's N Train. 2. Panthers in England? When I say the words, "Big Cats", you know of what I speak. Lions, tigers, panthers, cheetahs, lynxs, etc. You'd usually find most of these creatures in Africa, or places like the Amazon, or even Asia. Where you wouldn't expect to find them, is England. For not only is it very far from Africa, you'd think that the landscape wouldn't suit them. Yet, every day, there are reported sightings of big cats in the United Kingdom. 1. Dog on a Roof In Norfolk, England, there is a man named Mr. Haughton. Mr. Haughton works on roofs, and has been doing so since 1995. He also has a dog named Axel, and Axel likes to be with his master so much, that he'll actually go onto the roofs he's working on to be with him.

From Nemo, the clownfish, to the beautiful and elusive Blue Sea Slug, these are 19 INCREDIBLY Colorful Sea Creatures ! 8. Blue Tang -- Undersea creatures seem to look really cool in blue … and this one is no exception. The Blue Tang shows off some amazing blue coloration complemented by bold black markings. It almost sounds like a fashion shows, right? These fish are usually found in Indo-Pacific waters and are actually bright yellow when they’re younger. The blue and black colors show up at their final phase of development. 7. Coral -- Is that a brain at the bottom of the ocean? No … but it is a brain coral … and just an example of the wide ranging variety of living coral and coral reefs, some of which are thought to have started growing over 50 million years ago. Contrary to some beliefs, coral are animals, not plants … they’re actually related to anemones and jellyfish. The reefs formed by coral provide housing for thousands of marine species, giving them a place to find food, reproduce, and keep them safe until they’re mature enough to venture into the deeper ocean. Did you know coral reef plants and animals have proven important to the development of new medicines to treat cancer, Alzheimer's and heart disease? But even with all those advantages, human activity is threatening almost 60 percent of the world’s coral reefs. 6. Flower Hat Jellyfish -- This rare species of jellyfish is a rare species usually found in the waters of southern japan, Argentina and Brazil. It can grow to a half-foot in diameter, and is easily recognizable by its translucent bell, which is pinstriped with opaque bands. Those coiling tentacles adhere to the rim while not in use. Like many pretty looking things, this jelly carries a sting … but even though it’s painful, it’s non-lethal to humans … the worst you’d get is a rash. 5. Blue Sea Slug -- We couldn’t find a lot of information on this critter. From what we’ve seen, it’s often identified as a Blue Sea Slug … but that sounds like a pedestrian name for such a colorful creature. You can see the brilliant blue coloration in this photo … the animal almost looks like an alien life form with the two antennae sticking up. We’re guessing it might be a Nudibranch (new-di-brank). Those mollusks are noted for their striking colors, and there are more than 2,300 validated species scattered about the world. Can you confirm that? Let us know in the comments! 4. Mantis Shrimp -- They’re one of the most colorful forms of marine life, but don’t be fooled. They’re also known as ferocious undersea predators that possess, pound for pound, one of the most powerful punches on the planet. Punching with speed equal to a .22 caliber bullet, the Mantis Shrimp has not only broken shells of its prey … it’s also broken through aquarium glass. Punching at that velocity makes water vaporize and explode with a sharp bang, a flash of light and extremely high heat, all of which is felt by the victim as an additional blast. Not bad for an animal that averages less than four inches long. 3. Juvenile Emperor Angelfish -- Their coloration will change with age … but while they’re young, they exhibit these amazing displays of swirling dark blue, white and electric blue. It almost look hypnotic, right? Well, the fish keeps these distinct patterns until it reaches maturity, which usually takes around 4 years. Then the fish develops blue and yellow stripes, and black shading around its eyes. 2. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amphiprioninae Clownfish -- Did you recognize them from “Finding Nemo”? Known as one of the most brightly colored fish in the world, their bodies have distinctive white striping with colors that can vary from red, orange or yellow. They’re also known as anemone fishes, because of their mutually beneficial relationship with sea anemones. The toxic tentacles of the anemones protect clownfish from predators. And the fast movement of the fishes helps anemones find food and increase circulation. 1. The Mandarinfish -- Also known as the “Mandarin Dragonet” it swims in the Pacific reefs … but it’s less than 3 inches long so it can be difficult to see in the wild. As you might guess, this fish is highly sought after in the aquarium trade … but they’re considered extremely difficult to their strict eating habits. Some people think the Mandarinfish might be the most beautiful fish in the world … would you agree? to Epic Wildlife http://goo.gl/6rzs5u Let's Connect -- http://www.epicadamwildlife.com/ -- http://www.facebook.com/epicadamwildlife -- http://www.twitter.com/epicwildlife -- http://gplus.to/epicwildlife

https://www.facebook.com/BlackfishFilm - Many of us have experienced the excitement and awe of watching 8,000 pound orcas, or "killer whales," soar out of the water and fly through the air at sea parks, as if in perfect harmony with their trainers. Yet this mighty black and white mammal has many sides -- a majestic, friendly giant, seemingly eager to take trainers for a ride around the pool, yet shockingly -- and unpredictably -- able to turn on them at a moment's notice. BLACKFISH unravels the complexities of this dichotomy, employing the story of notorious performing whale Tilikum, who -- unlike any orca in the wild -- has taken the lives of several people while in captivity. So what went wrong? Shocking footage and riveting interviews with trainers and experts manifest the orca's extraordinary nature, the species' cruel treatment in captivity over the last four decades and the growing disillusionment of workers who were misled and endangered by the highly profitable sea-park industry. This emotionally wrenching, tautly structured story challenges us to consider our relationship to nature and reveals how little we humans truly know about these highly intelligent, and surprisingly sentient, fellow mammals that we only think we can control. When you look into their eyes, somebody's home. Somebody's looking back at you. . . but it may not be what you think. In Theatres 07/19 from Magnolia Pictures.

Worst scorpions in the world! Here's a survival guide for adventurers on the treatment & symptoms of the worst scorpion encounters. Subscribe for new videos: http://goo.gl/SaufF4 Follow us on Instagram: @theywillkillyou Voiceover by Carl Mason: [email protected] What are they? Scorpions are arachnids found all over the world with over 2,000 different species. They’ve got eight legs, a tail with a sack & a stinger at the end. They’re incredibly adaptable often living in harsh climates. When food is scarce, they have the unique ability to slow their metabolism & live off as little as one insect per year. Scorpions tend to stay away from us but they also love the dark spaces that houses & old buildings provide. They use their pinchers to grab hold of their food before using their stinger. 6: The Striped Bark Scorpion The striped bark scorpion is one of the most commonly encountered scorpions in America coming in at number six. Every year thousands are stung by this critter found in the South western parts of America & Northern Mexico. By day, they hide under rocks, plants, or in the cracks of buildings. At night, they surface in search of food. Their pale yellow colour with black stripes down the side helps them blend into the desert environment & they can grow from three to four inches in length. Their diet consists of insects, smaller arachnids & spiders. Where are they located? Nocturnal creatures, they’re active at night, but rest during the day. In the wild, they can often be found hiding under rocks, within plants & under bits of bark. With their quick reproductive rate scorpions can easily turn into a problem in the home. Needing only the tiniest of spaces to enter your home, they can hide in attics, basements, shoes, clothes, & other dim areas. Some species are known to enjoy spending time upside down, & can be found on the underside of your table. Woodpiles are also great place to hang out, so always double check before grabbing wood! Just saying. Number Four: The Brazilian Yellow Scorpion The Brazilian yellow scorpion lives in Brazil's tropical habitats it prefers to keep its distance from people, but can also be found in cities because its food is attracted to the garbage & vegetation. When fully grown, the Brazilian yellow scorpion is almost 3 inches long, normally a yellow-brown colour with yellow limbs. The Brazilian yellow scorpion's stinger can deliver some long-lasting effects. 3: The Black Fat-tailed Scorpion The black fat-tailed scorpion is number three on our list. The black fat-tailed scorpion prefers warm & dry areas & is often found on the outskirts of deserts in the Middle East & North & West Africa. They're black or brown in color, have a hefty build, & can grow up to 3.5 inches in length. The black fat-tailed scorpion eats lizards, insects, spiders, scorpions, & even small mammals such as mice. The black fat tailed’s scorpion, is different from other scorpions. 2: The Indian Red Scorpion The Indian red scorpion has a sting that's sure to keep any predator away. Found in India & parts of Pakistan, Nepal, & Sri Lanka, this arachnid prefers a humid subtropical or tropical climate. It’s found in populated areas & often finds its way into houses. Generally, it grows to between 2 to 3.5 inches long. Its colors vary slightly, but they’re usually a dark orange, a dull or a bright red-brown with grey ridges. 1: The Arizona Bark Scorpion Number one on our list is the Arizona bark scorpion, which has the worst scorpion stinger out of any scorpion on the planet. Common to South west America & Northwest Mexico, the Arizona bark scorpion is light brown & measures anywhere between 2.5 & 3.5 inches. Feeding on small insects like cockroaches, beetles, crickets & the occasional scorpion or two. Hiding during the day in dark damp places to avoid the intense desert sun they enter your home. The Arizona bark scorpion accounts affects thousands of people in the US every year & around 100,000 people in Mexico.

Singing dolphins shortly after leaving the Bosporus or Bosphorus as we headed into the Black Sea. There were literally hundreds in the mouth of the channel, we can only assume that fish were a plenty. If this video doesn't entertain you please don't give it a thumbs down, just accept that we can't make videos and move on! ;)

Take a look at some invasive parasites! From zombie fish to flesh eating parasites to tongue eating lice and holes in fish heads, these parasites are really dangerous! SUBSCRIBE for the latest videos: https://goo.gl/7xzjzR` 4. Hexamita (hole in head) Just missing out on being in the top three is a parasite known as ‘hexamita’ which mainly causes the disease ‘Head and Lateral Line Erosion’ or simply ‘Hole in the head’. As hexamita starts its life inside the fish, it will reside in the intestinal tract and move throughout the host invading vital organs including the kidneys. In order to spread its spores, it needs to escape through lesions made in the head of the fish - which is then known as ‘Hole in the head’. Starting out with small indents in the head; the parasite causes initially mild conditions - including discolouration and those lesions I mentioned earlier. However, when left untreated, these small holes in the head grow larger and deeper - attracting bacteria and fungi to invade the exposed lesions and holes in the fish’s head that parasite spores escape from. It is these that cause death in the fish as the creature will eventually lose its appetite and succumb to the infection. 3. Roundworms (nematodes) Hitting in at number three is a special contender - it’s the ‘roundworm’, or more commonly known as a nematode. What makes it so special? Well, it’s simply because of how diverse they are! They can affect everything from fish, to insects, to mammals, and that includes humans like you and I. We call these types of organism ‘zoonotic’, as they can thrive in different species - similar to the fish tapeworms which came in at number 5! There are thousands of different species of roundworms, but they all work in a similar sort of way. They can cause anaemia which is a loss of red blood cells, they can hemorrhage fish and cause them to lose their balance when swimming. They also tend to fray the fish’s gills meaning that the host can’t take in the required oxygen to survive - often choking it to death or causing it to become slow and confused. They often hook into important body parts and sap energy and nutrients from them, including the liver and digestional tract. Even though these creatures are ‘zoonotic’, they might not always show the same symptoms from host to host. In humans, symptoms are usually less fatal and can cause us to have rashes, diarrhea, stomach pains and general malaise (that’s a feeling of unwellness). They are also known to cause us to lose our appetite and to lose weight. In 2012, a man from Brazil caught a zoonotic nematode after eating raw sashimi - two weeks later he was diagnosed with a parasite which caused his back to blister into red lesions. 2. Rhizocephala Rhizocephala are very similar to the shark infesting Anelasama; however, these barnacles serve as parasites to crabs. Female crabs have a ‘brood pouch’, where she keeps her eggs; this is mainly how the rhizocephala attacks its host. After being infected through a joint, the crab will have the parasite racing through its feeding tubes until they reach the brooding pouch. The rhizocephala then completely destroys the eggs inside the pouch, destroys the pouch itself and replaces it with itself; the crab is now infertile and is manipulated by the parasite to believe that it still has an egg pouch - meaning the female crab goes out of her way to protect the parasite. Well, that’s lucky for male crabs! Don’t be so sure… this parasite also attacks the brain of male crabs making them produce feminine hormones - causing the crab to believe it has an egg sack itself; and infecting it the same way… yikes! I wonder what can be worse than a parasite that tricks you into caring for it?... wait to you see what we have next... 1.Cymothoa exigua (tongue eating louse) Taking top place is the tongue eating louse, a completely destructive and terrifying parasite that has a very particular way of working. After entering the host through its gills, the louse will find the tongue of the fish. While attaching itself, it attempts to sever all the blood vessels in the tongue. The lack of blood coming to the tongue then causes necrosis (this is the scientific for dying tissue). The necrosis of the tongue kills all of the tissue making it fall off! With just a stub left, the louse attaches itself to the base of what was the fish’s tongue and replaces itself forever. Once the fish dies, the louse will detach itself from the tongue and then just reattach itself to the outside of the fish, gaining more nutrients there. What makes this worse is that this process takes a while, so many people have found fish with no tongues in their shopping! While the fish has the parasite attached, it can still use it as a real tongue with no real detriment to its health. A spooky parasite, this is the only known one in the animal kingdom to become a fully functioning organ when attached!

Here are the top 14 dangerous and some even poisonous creatures in the ocean it's terrifying to think they are under there waiting!! 7. Megalodon Megalodon is an extinct species of shark that lived millions of years ago. They were a lot like the great white sharks of today only much bigger. While great whites can reach a length of 20 feet, Megalodon’s could reportedly reach a ridiculous length of nearly 60 feet. Their teeth have been found across the globe from Australia to Japan and as far north as England and Denmark. 6. Killer Whales Being an apex predator means you have no natural predators. Essentially these are the animals at the top of the food chain. Killer, or Orca, whales are considered apex predators and have been known to kill great white sharks, leopard seals, and even other whales. Like wolves, they have a tendency to hunt in packs. Wild orcas don't pose any threat to humans, but there have been incidents in which captive orcas have killed or seriously injured their handlers at marine theme parks. These events highlight the fact that people should probably stop keeping killer whales in captivity rather than any indication that orcas are potentially dangerous to humans. 5. Stingrays Stingrays are usually very passive and gentle around human beings. But if they feel vulnerable in any way they have barbed stingers on their tails that inflict notoriously painful stings that can be deadly when hit in the chest or abdomen. Since stingrays spend a lot of time camouflaging on the seafloor humans often step on them accidentally and end up with a very sore foot to show for it. The world just recognized the ten year anniversary of popular wildlife expert Steve Irwin’s death, who was fatally stung by a stingray on September 4, 2006. 4. Leopard Seal Most seals are relatively harmless and pose no threat to human beings. Leopard seals, however, are not your average run of the mill seal. They are the only seals that eat warm-blooded prey, and the females are larger than the males, another oddity amongst seals. They eat penguins, smaller seals and squid using their powerful jaws, sharp teeth, and clever hunting tactics. In 2003 a British marine biologist was fatally attacked by a leopard seal while snorkeling off of the Antarctic Peninsula. It was the first time a fatal seal attack was recorded, and though seal attacks are rare scientists speculate that the more humans interact with these seals, the more attacks there will be in the future. 3. Box Jellyfish Amongst the world’s most poisonous creatures, this unassuming ocean dweller is responsible for many fatalities annually. Many countries don’t require death certificates, so the exact number isn’t known, but judging from the fact that 20 to 40 people die every year in the Philippines alone, it’s safe to assume that box jellyfish are one of the ocean’s deadliest creatures. Their tentacles are covered with cnidocyst, which contains a tiny dart loaded with a poison that can cause a rapid spike in blood pressure leading to a potentially fatal heart attack. These facts have led some to call the box jellyfish the world’s most venomous creature. 2. Sharks When talking about the ocean’s deadliest predators, sharks are usually the first creatures to come to people’s minds. Though their reputation does have some basis in reality, it is cultural references like the Jaws movie franchise and the Discovery Channel’s Shark Week that have ballooned the shark’s reputation to all new somewhat undeserving heights. There are around 500 species of sharks, but only three, the great white, tiger and bull sharks are responsible for double-digit fatalities. From 1948 to early 2016 there were 2,899 total unprovoked shark attacks recorded around the world, 548 of which were fatal. In comparison, you are more likely to be killed by a falling aircraft or riding a horse. 1. Saltwater Crocodile The saltwater crocodile has two things going for it that help to make them the ocean’s deadliest. These beasts are the largest reptiles on the planet, reaching weights of up to 2,600 pounds and have the most powerful bite on earth, ten times stronger than that of the great white shark. Of all crocodiles, this territorial species is the most likely to treat humans as prey. There are a few fatal saltwater crocodile attacks per year in Australia, with many more attacks from different areas of the world that are believed to go unreported.

Two Bottlenose Black Sea dolphins, Tarzan and Eve, got 'officially' married at they their home aquarium in the Ukrainian resort city of Yalta on Wednesday (February 12) ahead of Valentine's Day celebrated each year on February 14. The dolphins both born two years ago in the Yalta dolphinarium were inseparable and the keepers decided it was time their relationship was made official. "Somebody may misinterpret this perhaps, but I think they have the same right as we humans to be happy, be a family, make babies, procreate," said director Albert Kurshatov after signing the wedding certificate. Dolphins also 'signed' the certificate with a paint brush under the supervision of a trainer. Bottlenose Black Sea dolphins are the largest marine mammals in the Black Sea reaching up to 2.5 metres in length. Bottlenose dolphins are the most common group found in aquariums around the world as they have friendly disposition and respond well to training.

Sea creatures, such as orcas, can be massive. These whales are trained in SeaWorlds, but your chances are small if you interact with a wild orca. Support our Patreon today: https://www.patreon.com/theywillkillyou Subscribe for new videos: http://goo.gl/SaufF4 Follow us on Instagram: @theywillkillyou Voiceover by Carl Mason: [email protected] What Is It? The orca is actually the largest member of the oceanic dolphin family. The popular name for the orca is derived from ‘asesina-balenas’, a term 18th century Basque whalers used in reference to them. It was based on their observations of orca pods. The orca’s easily distinguishable by its black back, white chest & sides, white patches above the eyes & the dark-grey ‘saddle-patch’ across its back. Its heavy & robust body features paddle-like pectoral fins & a large dorsal fin, which, for males, can be up to 6 feet tall. Males are larger than females weighing over 6 tons with lengths from 20 to 26 feet. The largest ever recorded was an 11-ton male measuring 32 feet. Orcas have good eyesight, a good sense of touch, & excellent hearing. Through their exceptional echolocation abilities they identify objects & prey in their environment by emitting clicking noises & listening for echoes. They live in groups called pods & are a highly intelligent & highly social species. It’s claimed that they’re intelligent to the point of self-awareness. They’ve vocal behaviors, which can be particular to a specific group & passed across generations, which is an indication of animal culture. 6 Douglas Robertson In 1972, about 200 miles from the Galapagos Islands, a pod of orcas rammed the hull of Lucette, a 43-foot-long wooden schooner captained by author & sailor Douglas Robertson. They collected rainwater & caught turtles, mahi-mahi & flying fish while using a makeshift sail heading towards Central America. 5 Hans Kretschmer While Hans Kretschmer was resting on his board, an orca reportedly sunk its teeth into his thigh. Apparently, this is the only documented incident which involved a wild orca and a human. Where Is It Located? They are a cosmopolitan species meaning they’re found in a wide variety of marine environments, in all of the world’s oceans & most of its seas. In fact, with the exception of certain areas of the Arctic as well as the Black & Baltic seas, orcas are found everywhere as they adapt very well to any climate. According to Sea World, they’re the most widely distributed mammal second only to humans. Their striking appearance & imposing size along with their intelligence, playfulness & trainability have made them popular at aquatic theme parks. 4 Alexis Martinez Alexis Martinez was one of the most experienced trainers at the Loro Parque, in Tenerife. On December 24, 2009, he was working with Keto, a 14-year-old male orca. Keto who was born at Sea World Orlando Florida, had been described by other trainers as not being ‘completely predictable’. While practicing the routine for a show set to take place on Christmas Day, Keto rammed Martinez in the chest. How? In Western Culture, Pliny the Elder first described orcas around 70 AD. Along with their intelligence & ability to engage, their sheer mass & strength is enough. With strong conical teeth, which can grow up to 4 inches in length their jaws exert an almost-inescapable grip. They’ve been observed throwing seals several feet in the air with their flukes. 3 Keltie Byrne The first was February 20, 1991, at Sealand of the Pacific in Victoria, British Columbia. When Keltie Byrne, a part-time trainer fell into the tank, Tilikum rushed to her & grabbed her by the foot. Two smaller female orcas present in the tank joined. Once, Byrne managed to reach the side & tried to get out but the orcas pulled her back into the pool. 2 Daniel Dukes SeaWorld Orlando Florida, July 5, 1999: The night before, Daniel Dukes evaded park security & hid until after closing. He then entered the orca’s tank. When park workers approached the tank the next day, 27-year-old Daniel Dukes was found. According to Sea World staff this wasn’t the first instance of Dukes diving with sea mammals unclothed. 1 Dawn Brancheau Dawn Brancheau was an experienced trainer, who, on February 24, 2010, was part of ‘Dine with Shamu’ show at Sea World Orlando alongside Tilikum, the show’s main attraction. Towards the end of the performance, Tilikum reacted poorly to one of her commands. A BAFTA Award-nominated 2013 documentary called ‘Blackfish’ focuses on Tilikum. How? Once in the water with them, there’s little you can do. The incidents that occurred, involved trainers.

Check out Bill Schutt's "Cannibalism: A Perfectly Natural History": http://bit.ly/2HLWjrU View full lesson: https://ed.ted.com/lessons/cannibalism-in-the-animal-kingdom-bill-schutt Until recently, scientists thought cannibalism was a rare response to starvation or other extreme stress. Well-known cannibals like the praying mantis and black widow were considered bizarre exceptions. But now, we know they more or less represent the rule. Bill Schutt shows how cannibalism can promote the survival of a species by reducing competition, culling the weak, and bolstering the strong. Lesson by Bill Schutt, animation by Compote Collective.
