    For the past two years around this time I have reminded you (here and here) that it's bear-watching season in Alaska. And this year is no different. Here's the link to the Explore.org live streaming brown bear cameras set up in Katmai National Park. They even have an underwa... / Continue →

    This is the 1.5-meter (~5-feet), at least 500 gram (~1.1-pound) giant earthworm found near the Sumaco Volcano in Ecuador by Project Noah member hoppy4840. That is a giant f***ing worm. Remember the children's book 'How To Eat Fried Worms'? I doubt there was a recipe for some... / Continue →

    This is a video of an airplane repopulating a Utah lake by dropping a fishy payload while flying over it. It must have been the ride of those fishes lives. OMG WHAT'S HAPPENING? WTF IS HAPPENING? OMG, OMG. HOLY SHIT WE'RE BIRDS -- WHEEEEEEEEE!! Hopefully none landed on the... / Continue →

    This is the Ultraskiff Angler 360. It's a little round boat with a rotating seat, allowing for 360-degrees of uninterrupted fishing/fun. It comes with standard boat things like storage compartments, rod holders, and BUOYANCY. Are you thinking what I'm thinking? "We play bum... / Continue →

    This is a short video of an octopus that's caught by a fisherman and, when it's tossed onto the boat's deck, instantly turns white to try to hide from the humans. Unfortunately, human eyes are harder to trick than some ocean predators, and I imagine this guy ended up as somebo... / Continue →

    Wow, two squid posts in one day -- Poseidon must be losing his shit at his computer right now. This is a video of the giant squid caught by Japanese fisherman Shigenori Goto. Fun fact: giant squid are rarely seen because they live so deep in the ocean and guard Atlantis. G... / Continue →

    This is a video of some ingenious Ruskies fishing a Honda SUV out of a frozen lake. How did it get there in the first place? My guess is vodka. The car's owner says even after its little swim the car still drives. Drives, and has to smell like shit. Keep going to find out ... / Continue →

    This is the unidentified mystery fish caught by fisherman Sapar Mansor off the coast of Tudan, Malaysia. I'm not sure I would eat it, but I would. I'll eat almost anything, including playground sand. The creature has two tusk-like spikes near its mouth and measures over one ... / Continue →

    This is a picture of an Australian fisherman cutting himself out of a shark. It didn't actually eat him though, he just caught the shark, gutted it, then climbed inside to have the picture taken. That's pretty sick. Now listen: I hate sharks as much as the next guy who agree... / Continue →

    Note: Lamprey appears larger in this shot than it actually is due to the perspective, but it's still a large specimen, undoubtedly due to all the hair gel and self-tanner runoff in New Jersey's water supply. This is the invasive sea lamprey that Redditor jlitch's friend caught... / Continue →

    This is the link to Explore.org's LIVE 'Brown Bear & Salmon Cam' from Brook Falls in Alaska. I've been watching for almost fifteen minutes now and I've already seen two successful fishing attempts. Plus a bird try to steal a fish from a bear. I thought the bear was gonna eat... / Continue →

    Transform and reel in! This is the $425 Pack Rifle, a .22 caliber single-shot rifle that turns into a fishing pole in case you're tired of hunting wabbit and wanna grill some fish over the campfire or whatever the hell you outdoorsy types do. Wear flannel and shit in a hole? ... / Continue →

    Seen here looking like about 40 fish sticks, a group of fishermen caught this three-eyed Simpsons 'blinky' fish in a lake near a nuclear power plant in Argentina. Jealous cyclops shark is jealous! Per Babel Fish (how appropriate!) translation: "We were fishing and we took th... / Continue →

    Mine usually say, "this seat's taken". Fish: just like people, they can toot. Sure scientists might try to argue herring are the only ones that bust ass in the traditional sense, but that's bullsh*t because I used to have an aquarium with all kinds of fish in there and someti... / Continue →

    Fish, long thought to make terrible tradesmen (but delicious sticks), can apparently use tools. Rocks are tools, right? "URG!" ...Thanks for your input, Grok, but your dingaling is showing. I'm serious, people are starting to stare. Me? I've been staring the whole time. ... / Continue →

    This is the Sealander, a camping trailer small enough to be towed behind a regular-sized car that, when backed into the water, turns into a lil boat. No word if it has a glass bottom so you can watch mermaids making love in the seaweed below, but probably not considering MERMA... / Continue →

    This is a public aquarium made entirely out of ice and frozen fish in (SURPRISE!) Japan. Neat idea, but I can see the exact same thing walking through the frozen food isle of the Korean market down the street. All kinda shit be starin' at ya! The Kori no Suizokukan, or the "... / Continue →

    Ever wanted a clear canoe or kayak so you can see what's going down in the water below you? Personally I've always been too scared, especially if it has anything to do with sharks. Still, when I was a kid I did throw fish-food on the floor of a glass-bottom boat, so there's t... / Continue →

    Seen here looking like a sad-ass Charlie Brown, the blobfish may very well be on its way to extinction. And not just because he needs to get those spots on his lips looked at by a medical professional, but I warned him that blowfish had blown the whole reef. The depths at whi... / Continue →

    I've known about other species of handfish for awhile because I pretty much know everything including most of the stuff the government tries so hard to keep from us. The island from LOST actually existing aside, there's a new species to add to the soon-to-be-extinct list: the ... / Continue →
