Epic Tumblr Story Captures Earth's Wildlife Through Aliens' Eyes

So basically, it's stories like the gem that we have with this one from Tumblr that prove that earth might seem easily conquerable, but there's an unanticipated punch waiting to be unleashed underneath the surface. Who knows? Maybe we already have alien homies hanging out in the ocean or something. There is apparently something like 90% of that big ol blue that has yet to be explored. Could be a whole party happening down there.

The appreciation for Koalas has absolutely plummeted in the last decade, from news about how they have dumb smooth brains that don't work good, they're covered in diseases, and how they totally lack empathy. Throw this noise on top of the pile. Do they have any redeeming koalaties?

Who cares what these people were trying to film. That spider has some fantastic timing. And to be fair, most of us would freak out to some degree if we saw that on the ceiling while driving. Also, despite the pandemonium, great work keeping the spider in frame.

Apparently the ability to fly wasn't good enough for bats. They just had to go and take swimming too. The one consolation here is that even though they can swim, they don't seem all that good at it. It's just a slow, floating "W".

Now that's a once in a lifetime kind of experience right there. Yikes. Can't even imagine what must've been going through those poor kayakers' heads when they were momentarily chilling in the whale's mouth.

Apparently this terrarium was put together back in 2007-2008, which makes it at least 12 years old. Maybe we're all living in some kind of terrarium ourselves.

The Washington State Department of Transportation uses multiple methods to make sure that drivers stay safe from avalanches. This particular method might be the most striking though. The DOT fires live artillery rounds at unstable snow to trigger avalanches while drivers aren't out on the roads.

Just forget about any thriller/action scene that you've ever seen in your entire life. This iguana being chased by a pack of vicious killer snakes is as thrilling as it gets.
