Courtship between two giant baboon tarantulas comes with the risk of injury and death for the male. This rare video begins with the male shaking his legs, a sign that the tarantulas are preparing to mate. Then, the male approaches cautiously, since many females spiders will eat their partner. The female also could potentially bite into the male’s face during mating, which goes to show that tarantula sex can be risky business.

In Frederick Sound, Alaska, a specifically designed drone called the “snot-bot” captured DNA from a humpback whale and filmed it live for the National Geographic TV special Earth Live. When scientists spotted a whale near the surface, they launched the drone and waited for it to breach. When it shot air from its blowhole, the drone flew through the resulting spray, collecting phlegm on its attached petri dishes. The snot samples will give scientists a non-invasive way to study the whale’s DNA.

Jellyfish paralyze prey using neurotoxins in their tentacles, but the turtle does not seem to be affected. It closes its eyes and uses its flipper as a shield from the jellyfish’s stinging tentacles. Green sea turtles are endangered. Their main threat is overexploitation of eggs from the beaches they are laid on. Green sea turtles are predominately herbivorous, but juveniles have been known to feed on jellyfish.
