Maybe it's all about carrying no fear in your heart. Maybe this guy's just exuding such an overwhelming presence of love that the crocodile isn't even thinking twice about attacking him. Who knows. What I do know is that this croc is out there looking like a modern day dinosaur.

That fox must've been in one deep slumber. Also though, shout out to the bird for the fearless maneuvering. Homie was clearly on a mission to gather all that necessary nesting material. Things could've shaken out very differently for the bird.

This might seem wholesome and funny when considered at surface level, but just you wait, because this turtle is busily preparing itself for the moment when it breathes fire.

Faces Carved Into Trees Is A Mystifying Spectacle

While these are absolutely awesome to look at, we can't help but think that some of the trees can't have been too stoked about it. Also, just imagine crossing paths with one of these faces in the middle of a forest when the sun's going down and the eerie vibes of isolation in nature are already running amok. Just a little bit of yikes.

Tsunamis are absolutely mortifying. There's something hard wired into our DNA that basically just trembles in fear whenever you see one in action. The sheer power of those tsunamis is at once humbling and traumatizing. We're just grateful that these guys were able to get out of that intense situation safely.

Alright, I can't be the only one thinking that this sounds exactly like a cow trying to meow. With that being said, still wouldn't mess with this dude.

Australia is widely known as a land of mortifying nopes, but usually those nopes come in the form of giant lizards and horrifying spiders. In this case, it's believed some heavy rains brought on an extra big helping of mice in agricultural parts of the country. Some farms basically have moving outdoor carpeting now. Who knows if those mortifying nopes will move in on the action.

While the noise that we hear in this video is absolutely giving off some unnerving, horrific vibes, it's equally mystifying to behold the mushroom hunter's superhuman level of chill. It looks like he's planning on returning to that same spot for another video, and we're honestly ready for it.

Who are we to draw assumptions about whether or not walruses thoroughly enjoy music or not? Because clearly, by the looks of this video, walruses absolutely love their tunes.

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.

Straight up hypnotic stuff right here. You probably didn't wake up today thinking that you needed some trains plowing snow in your life, but here you are. It must be a whole lot of fun to be one of the dudes driving the trains.

Plenty of people are out there flying their drones and working to create stunning videos, but this one right here is something magical. This dude's skills are off the charts. He gets so dang close to that lion.

It probably goes without saying that it's a bad idea to disturb a rattlesnake. What's amazing is how quickly this innocuous situation turns into a moment of stomach-dropping, primal fear. All those flags make a little more sense now.

Twitter Thread: The World's Most Ridiculous Bird Names

This fun Twitter thread from @Stu_Bot3000 runs a quick study on some of the world's silliest bird names. Suffice to say, we had no idea there were these kinds of bird names running amok out there. It's as if some of the folks in charge of naming these birds have some sort of vendetta against birds, because some of these names are just brutal.
