Oh and it is also a very funny bird to watch. They often stand on one leg and hop along like Long John Silver. Plus although they congregate close to the sea they really don’t seem to want to get wet so every time a wave comes in, away they hop and run!
This marvelous piece of filmmaking was created by Javier Salinas Laguna. It’s a gorgeous piece of film and the music ("Playful by the dozen" by Daniel Pemberton) is particularly well chosen.

Here, Zagreb Zoo is the scene of an encounter between a gibbon – who just seems to be minding his own business – and two pesky otters, seemingly intent on ruining the gibbon’s day.
Fortunately the gibbon has one thing up his sleeve – height. Swing away, you funky gibbon!
Mirko Faienza shot his father’s garden in Bologna, Italy, with all the requisite wildlife. It is all shot in gorgeous colors and the attention to detail is quite amazing.
Add to that the fact that the music suits it so very well and you have six minutes of bliss!
