Nicknamed the “swamp king,” the catfish was stranded in shallow water more than two miles away from its home. The rescuers hauled the fish out with a giant net and transported it back home on a motorbike trailer, with the entire rescue taking more than six hours. The Mekong giant catfish is the world’s largest scaleless freshwater fish and are also endangered. Overfishing and habitat destruction threaten the survival of this wild species.

Drones Sacrificed for Spectacular Volcano Video | National Geographic

Video technology and science converge on an active volcano in Vanuatu, where explorer Sam Cossman operated camera-mounted drones to capture high-definition images of the spectacular yet dangerous Marum Crater. Cossman and his team piloted the drones over the 7.5-mile-wide (12-kilometer) caldera while confronting toxic gases and boiling lava. Although two drones succumbed to the harsh environment, the team was able to bring back video and photos that will help scientists learn more about the volcano and the life around it.

Sperm Whale Hunt – Human Planet – BBC

Check out BBC Earth on BBC online – http://www.bbc.com/earth/world
For these Indonesian fishermen, a sperm whale can dramatically change their fortunes and feed their families for months. This small-scale whaling, using traditional hand-made boats and harpoons, has been happening for over 600 years and does not threaten whale numbers in these oceans as the fisherman only take around 6 a year.

John Hurts narrated the visually stunning Human Planet, an awe-inspiring, jaw-dropping, heart-stopping landmark series that marvels at mankind’s incredible relationship with nature in the world today.

Macaques and sika deer commonly hang out together on the Japanese island of Yakushima. But this is the first time a male monkey has been observed attempting to mate with a female deer. In fact, it’s only the second sexual encounter ever reported between two species that are not closely related, the other being between Antarctic fur seals and king penguins. While it could be a case of mistaken identity or a way for the monkey to learn to copulate, scientists believe the most likely explanation is that the male monkey in the video is a “peripheral male.” These males are low-ranking member of macaque society that do not typically have access to females to mate with, thus the encounter may have been a way for the monkey to relieve sexual frustration.

Read more about this rare interspecies sexual behavior and the previously observed seal-penguin sexual encounters.
