Turtle knows exactly how to respond when sex gets interrupted

These two snappers just want to be left alone. Obviously. They’re trying to have an intimate moment here. But the nearby horse just won’t let them be.

Finally, the turtle responds exactly like you’d expect him to…

Don’t worry. The owner reports that the horse is just fine. In fact, he came right back and kept nosing around the turtle until the turtle just gave up and left.

A rare and insane nature video to share with everyone you hate

In a segment of the BBC’s Wonders of the Monsoon, we have the distinct displeasure of seeing a leech eat an earthworm. It sounds gross, I know. Just wait till you actually see it.

It’s incredible, but so nasty…

The leech sucks it’s prey down like spaghetti, crushing the worm with its muscular throat.

Adding to the remarkableness of the unpalatable moment, this footage is the first that has ever been captured of this phenomenon. And in case you’re curious, the worm met its demise and the leech had lunch on Mount Kinabalu in Borneo.
