A Fin whale carcass the bears have been feeding on for the past year lies beneath the surface of the water, Svalbard, Norway.
I don’t know why I find this so funny.
Suck it, Segway.

Jacob’s Well - Wimberley, Texas
hey kids let’s all go jump into the pits of hell
This is the scariest thing I’ve ever seen.
People have actually died in Jacob’s Well, but not just from jumping, you’re too buoyant to really go down far.
But Jacob’s Well draws a lot of scuba divers, and some of them have gotten lost and run out of air. Some of the bodies have never even been found, because the underground river that feeds Jacob’s Well is so complex. I find that terrifying.
But pardon me for a second because LOOK IT’S MY HOMETOWN ON TUMBLR HEY
that’s cool but let’s be real here, that looks like a giant sting ray
oh hey I’ve been to Wimberley
I’m glad I didn’t go here though, because JESUS H CHRISTLICKER
THE SPINY FLOWER MANTIS
Native to southern and eastern Africa
While at rest Pseudocreobotra wahlbergii is well camouflaged. In fact, its imitation of a flower is so good that prey insects will attempt to pollinate it. Instead, the mantis seizes and eats them. P. wahlbergii is very aggressive and has the ability to kill prey several times larger than itself
The top photo shows the spiny flower mantis in a threat display, spreading its forewings,making itself appear larger, and prominently displaying its eyespots to startle would-be predators.
