Ocean Shutter focuses on the nudibranchs of Anilao in the Philippines. The close-up macro shots are simply stunning. Enjoy!
However, she was taken to the Nuneaton and Warwickshire Wildlife Sanctuary in the UK where she quickly made herself at home with the five other resident foxes there. In this video one of her carers enters her enclosed area and the sounds of welcome – together with the amazing wagging of her bushy tail – are a joy to behold.
Despite the fact that the video is not high resolution this has gone viral. Yet we wouldn’t be a responsible site about animals if we didn’t slip in a quick statement. Foxes are not animals which can be domesticated – although they can bond with individuals they are way too volatile to be around strangers. In other words, pet foxes are pretty much a recipe for disaster. So, while Dawn is cute and adorable she would have had a much better life in the wild.

He put some chicken nuggets in the oven and left the house. His cam secured in the kitchen area, this very funny piece of film was waiting for him on his return. Lucy had heard the oven alarm indicating that the chicken nuggets were ready. What she does next is ingenious, funny, charming and just a little bit naughty all at the same time!
If you are a dog lover I am sure you will enjoy this home movie which no doubt will (like Lucy) be treasured for many years to come by Mr Scheinerman and his family.

This is a remarkable sub-species of the North American Black Bear. It is the Kermode Bearr - also known as the spirit bear.
Living along the shorelines and central interior of British Columbia on the west coast of Canada, around ten percent of Kermode bears have white or creamy coats. They are revered among the native peoples of the province.
Pronounced kerr-MOH-dee, the lighter Kermode bears are not albinos. They appear much brighter than most of the population because of recessive alleles.
This rare genetic trait doesn’t hold them back either – the paler bears are better fishers than their brown counterparts. It is thought this is because the fish cannot perceive the threat from above due to their coloring. A brown bear might stand out more against the clouds – that much is true.

This is a collection of clips captured near Isla Mujeres Island, Mexico. The whale sharks and manta rays in this video gather at Isle Mujeres each year to feed on tuna and snapper spawn.
Sit back and enjoy the wonderful images captured by natural history filmmakers Howard and Michele Hall whose work you may well have seen on Nature and Secrets of the Ocean Realm. It is all quite stunning.

The inspiration for this short piece came when the team from Variable, a production company & creative collective based in New York City saw the still photography of Carli Davidson which went viral last year. They contacted her to see if she would be interested in taking her project a step further and capturing the dogs with the moving image. As you can see, Variable got a big yes from Carli and they have now unleashed this fantastic video on to the internet.
If you love this as much as we did here at Ark in Space then you may like to know that Shake The Book is now available too, featuring many of Carli Davidson’s wonderful portraits of dogs captured in time while doing the shake…

That’s the case with Sam (who is a chocolate Labrador by the looks) who took his human Andres Santos for a great day at the beach recently. Andres caught it all in wonderful slow motion for us to enjoy, so, enjoy!

You might wonder what the bobbit worm does when the prey is larger than it is. Although it quite often kills its quarry on the first strike the bobbit worm injects a fatal toxin in to the prey animal. This incredible video was shot by Khaled Sultani, filmed with Light & Motion Bluefin pro housing / CX550 with Sola lights.

Yet no parent watches over it. This sounds as if it should be a young turtle, thrusting its flippers sideways as it makes its desperate lurch towards the ocean. It is not, however. This is a bird. More remarkable still is that when it emerges the chick will already be able to fly.
