Mike Tyson probably would have stopped SRR too. That's why they have weight divisions...in the animal world too.

Absolutely brutal video of a horse kicking another to death and causing to immediately shit itself. Horrific but somehow intriguing.

Some very cool stuff about this amazing animal's history. Fucking 200kg jaguar, shit is badass.

LOOK at him :sun

This is the South Philippine Dwarf Kingfisher and he has never been photographed before ever. Looking right into the camera too. Diva. What a beautiful bird and he doesn't give a fuck about the Coronavirus and has never heard of it.

He's been "in the book" for about 130 years but was more rumour than certitude. His voice still hasn't been recorded I don't think (am nosing around) but is described as so high pitched as to be almost insect-like! His style is perch-to-perch but he waits until there's no movement so despite his gorgeous colours he's almost impossible to see. A warlock of a creature.

Show dem balls bro
I saw a horrendous video of some guy feeding live mice to his snapping turtle ... horror show.

Not gonna repost if it's still floating about, it's like something you'd see on LiveLeak.
I saw one horrific one a few years back, guy dropped the rat into the tank and it was swimming around and the turtle snapped it in half and ate it's ass and legs, but the front half kept swimming around trying to get away. Gruesome.

I had pet mice as a kid so I have a certain affinity for them.

Obviously not to a weird level... but I wouldn't want to own a reptilian pet that needs feed living creatures that are closer to me than my pet from a evolutionary biological perspective.
