Can You Spot the Mountain Lion? He’s Standing Right There… [VIDEO]

If you ever wondered how difficult it really is to spot a cougar in the wild, you need to watch this video.

But as you can see, it’s even effective in the snow.

Take a Look at the World’s Largest Snake Pit [VIDEO]

If you have severe snake-o-phobia, then you probably don’t want to watch this video… because it features the greatest concentration of snakes found anywhere on the planet. And that concentration, believe it or not, ISN’T located in a lush tropical region. Instead, it’s located in a place that reaches -50 degrees in the winter. In fact, that’s exactly why they tend to cluster up so amazingly — to escape the frigid temperatures in subterranean limestone of Manitoba’s Interlake Region. While it may seem apocalyptic to those with a deep fear of reptiles, these garter snakes are relatively harmless and even fairly […]

How long do you think “Cottonmouthzilla” is judging from the video? Water moccasins are highly venomous and are known to stand their ground when they feel threatened. This specimen, however, appears to be so thick and massive that it’s hard for the creature to even get around.
