It can't possibly be fun to be in a vehicle while tons of snow and ice try to push you off the road, but that's exactly the situation these guys found themselves on a highway in Northern India. It's a real "you shall not pass" moment from mother nature and a reminder that if the elements decide to do literally anything, you're not going to be able to stop it. This isn't even that big. It's just strangely personal.

This guy's enthusiasm is infectious. He's all passion, baby. That deep stream must've been brimming with gratitude over all the love that it was given.

These elephants seals weren't playing around when it came to going to war over another seal that'd caught both their fancy. The sounds that they're making pretty much stop you in your tracks. The earth must've been rumbling and grumbling underneath all of that gargantuan movement.

They say not to approach seals at the beach, but when one comes up and wants to hang out, there's not a lot you can do to keep it away. This guy has somehow acquired the mystical animal magnetism of a Disney Princess, and we're jealous. That or he smells like food.

Tumblr Thread: The Plant World Is Actually Nuts

The plant world is bonkers. There are battalions of mint and strawberry bushes waging war against one another with an unnerving level of strategy involved. Naturally, as Tumblr so often does, this particular thread ends up escalating even further into the nightmarish land of the Kudzu vine. It turns out the Kudzu vine is basically a massive, green, alien life force that's here to literally smother everything to death. If you're looking for some more gold from the world of Tumblr check out this recent thread we shared about a tragically misunderstood, nice guy named Vinny.

A funny and educational Tumblr post that escalates from building a treehouse to fighting the kudzu vine.

The girl in the background is far too entertained by what appears to be quite the panic-inducing predicament. However, there were some other folks in the comments section that suggested this squid was injured, and that that's why it was hanging around the surface. Either way, the idea of falling off your surfboard and into the squid's home court is just a little bit unsettling.

Clearly this octopus is a good boi. He decided to go ahead and swim ashore to try and score some pets from some beachgoers. It's pretty cute watching the octopus accomplish his mission, and then swim back off into the sunset.

Every now and again we come across a video that doesn't scream "fail", but instead manages to temporarily restore our faith in humanity. Take this scenario for instance. A couple kayakers decided to act and do the admirable, heroic thing instead of freezing under the weight of panic.

Twitter Thread: Birds Named By People That Have Beef With Birds

Seriously, if you ever think you're having a tough morning/afternoon/evening, maybe, just maybe, you'll be able to find some temporary solace in knowing that there's literally a species of bird out there in this wild world that's been named the Go-Away Bird. We're ready for more of these.

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.

Animals That Are Way More Dangerous Than They Seem

Just because something is an herbivore doesn't mean it won't break you in half like a twig. Just because something was nice in a cartoon doesn't mean it won't eat your face. And just because something is small doesn't mean it can't stab you. Not only are cows, chickens and otters more deadly than they seem. There are loads of things that are surprisingly dangerous, like grapefruit juice and garage door springs. Take it from this zookeeper insider knowledge, every animal can be a hassle.

Just in case you're considering a nice fishing trip out to Florida, you'd be well advised to take note of this video. Yep, the alligators are still running amok out there. This dude had way too close of a shave. The fact that alligators can run up to 20mph on land makes this all the more sketchy. Crocodile homie clearly wasn't playing any games.

TikToker Claims She Found Humanoid Footprints, Shares Pictures

Getting out into the wilderness, far removed from the industrial tentacles of modern civilization can be a mystical, occasionally eerie experience. Sometimes, you might feel as if you're being watched. Or, maybe you witness a strange light up in the night sky, and you're not entirely sure that it was a shooting star or satellite. Well, in this case, we have a series of videos from TikToker @chroniclesofolivia, which depict her telling the story of the time she hiked out by Lena Lake with her mother, and the weird development that occurred.

Basically, what it boils down to is, her suggesting that there's a whole fam of Bigfoot folk out there, living in harmony with nature, and not yet officially classified by the government because they don't want to scare people. I mean, alright. 2020 was already enough of a rollercoaster. I think at this point, we're ready for it. Oh, and apparently the footprint that we're finally shown in one of her videos is different from a typical human footprint because it has a midtarsal break that's only found in primates. It's a whole lot of spooky information to take in. You be the judge on whether or not this is just a mere ploy to garner some attention on TikTok, or if it could be something more.

Umm, gotta catch 'em all anyone? The Hercules Beetle happens to be one of the largest bugs out there, and is a species of the Rhinoceros Beetle. I'm gonna guess that you need at least a Great Ball, maybe an Ultra Ball to catch this homie and add him to your pack.
