10 Kids Who Were Raised By Wild Animals
10 Real Kids Who Were Raised In The AMAZON JUNGLE Subscribe to our channel: ► http://bit.ly/Subscribe-to-Richest ◄ Have you ever been to a restaurant or just out in public and you get disrupted by loud and hyper kids? Yup, children can get pretty wild and make quite a scene. However, what about when children get really wild? We mean this in the literal sense and have 10 examples of children who were raised in the wild by animals. We’ll start you off with Natasha, a girl who was actually raised by feral cats and dogs after her parents neglected her. Then there’s Bello, a character who is seemingly straight from a Disney movie thanks to the fact he was raised by chimps. We’ll travel to India to tell you about a boy who was actually living with wolves. Not too far from there, lives a woman in Cambodia who appeared from the jungle one day after living a feral life for several years. If you like cats then be sure to stick around for the story of the little boy who was actually raised by a pack of feral street cats. No discussion of kids raised by wild animals would be complete without mentioning Marina Chapman. Allegedly kidnapped, her strange story involves monkeys in the jungle and a happy ending. In Siberia, a boy named Andrei was abandoned by his parents. Incredibly, he survived the harsh environment thanks to man’s best friend. In the Andes Mountains in South America, we’ll tell you about a boy known only as Daniel who survived thanks to wild goats. Speaking of mountains, there’s also the incredible story of Marcos who basically lived with wolves and, from what we can gather, experienced a Disney-like story over several years. Finally, there’s the story of a Ugandan man named John who fled into the jungle as a boy and was “discovered” years later living with a troop of monkeys.

Subscribe to our channel: https://goo.gl/cv6b96 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Description: When our lives are in danger, we sometimes forget that humans aren’t the only creatures on earth with the ability to recognize a life or death situation. From cats and dogs to horses and goats – many animals can tell when a human needs assistance. We share a past with every creature on this planet. Whether they are covered in fur, scales or feathers we sometimes need their help more than we realize. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Our Social Media: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/TheThingscom/ Pinterest: https://www.pinterest.com/thethingscom/ ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- For more videos and articles visit: http://www.thethings.com/

Unbelievable Animals That Saved People's Lives
Top 10 real stories of wild animals and pets saving human's lives Subscribe to our channel: http://goo.gl/9CwQhg Other Videos You Might Like Prehistoric Creatures That Still Exist Today https://youtu.be/cJtEGbk_OHc?list=PLXK3uPjJ22FWSlwPkum_jlLtojxm3O8LJ 10 Amazing WTF Wedding Photos https://youtu.be/fDfkdcfrVQI Description: The relationship between humans and animals is both complicated and beautiful. Humans eat animals, but also take care of them as pets. We depend on animals for food as we eat the meat, milk, and eggs. We keep cats, dogs, fish, birds, reptiles, and more as pets. We try to preserve dying species and help save them through reproduction, all while other members of the human race are causing the extinction of some of the world’s most beautiful animals. It’s truly a love-hate relationship, and while we think animals may be dumb and unaware of their human heroes, we are quickly learning that they are paying attention. In this video are some of the most remarkable stories of animals who have saved the lives of humans. From pigs to horses to dolphins, these animals sensed that there was danger and sprang into action before the victim even knew what was going on. Take Lulu the pig as an example. Her owner, JoAnn Altsman had a heart attack and collapsed in her home. Lulu ran to the road and tried to flag someone down. A driver eventually stopped, and followed the pig where they found Altsman unconscious and were able to call for help, saving the pig owner’s life. If it wasn’t for Lulu’s bravery and intelligence, there’s a good chance that Altsman would not have survived the heart attack. They say that animals sense something more than what humans can perceive around them. Perhaps it is due to animals having different brain function and being able to see more than we can ever imagine. Whatever the reason, it has truly become a major benefit for humans everywhere because not only can we protect each other, we also have the support of the animal kingdom on our side, which is a beautiful relationship to have. Feats such as these are also motivators for people to no longer eat meat and start organizations such as PETA. People such as these also see animals as equal partners in life, and don’t perceive humans as being above any other animal in this world or on the food chain. Another remarkable story is that of surfer Todd Endris. He was enjoying his time on his surfboard when he was viciously attacked by a passing shark. Endris gripped his surfboard to his stomach and chest to protect his intestines while the shark tore apart his back. Just as he felt all hope was lost, a pod of dolphins began to attack the shark and circle Endris so he could get to safety. While his back was forever scarred from the attack, he survived thanks to the mysterious heroic dolphins. Finally, in 2004, Amber Mason was vacationing with her family in Thailand when the infamous tsunami hit. Mason was on a guided excursion with an elephant named Ningnong when the wave hit, and the elephant took Mason on its back and turned away from the water, shielding the eight year old girl from sudden peril and death by drowning.

Couple Share Studio Flat With A Cougar | BEAST BUDDIES
MEET the brave couple that share their home with a playful two-year-old COUGAR. In 2016, Alexandr Dmitriev and his wife, Mariya, decided to adopt a young cougar called Messi and raise him as a house-pet in their small, studio apartment in Penza, Russia. Messi follows a strict grooming routine to ensure he doesn’t make too much of a mess around the house – he gets washed in the bath, has his nails trimmed, his teeth checked and he receives a special brush-down every day. The big cat eats twice a day with a diet consisting of turkey, beef, a bit of chicken breast and some bones. And with a growing social media following of 250,000 on Instagram and more than 2 million views on YouTube, Messi has become a local celebrity.

What are the universal human rights? - Benedetta Berti
View full lesson: http://ed.ted.com/lessons/what-are-the-universal-human-rights-benedetta-berti The basic idea of human rights is that each one of us, no matter who we are or where we are born, is entitled to the same basic rights and freedoms. That may sound straightforward enough, but it gets incredibly complicated as soon as anyone tries to put the idea into practice. What exactly are the basic human rights? Who gets to pick them? Who enforces them—and how? Benedetta Berti explores the subtleties of human rights. Lesson by Benedetta Berti, animation by Sarah Saidan.

10 Unique Animals You Won’t Believe Exist
10 strange and amazing animals that you have probably never heard of. Nature is truly full of surprises! We live in the twenty-first century, and all continents have already been discovered, all secrets of our planet revealed, all mountain peaks conquered. Just when you think you have seen it all, some new bizarre creature makes an appearance instantly restoring your faith in the impossible! TIMESTAMPS Mangalitsa Pig, a.k.a. “a pig in sheep’s clothing” 0:50 Rhinopithecus or golden snub-nosed monkey 1:33 Emperor tamarin 2:13 Patagonian Mara 3:04 Fluffy cow 3:52 Markhor Goat 4:44 Raccoon dog 5:23 Blue Footed Booby 6:25 Malayan Colugo 7:13 Venezuelan Poodle Moth 8:09 BONUS 8:56 SUMMARY - The birthplace of this curly-haired pig is Hungary where it was discovered in the mid-19th century. Due to the fleece covering this animal, it resembles a sheep, therefore, such a name! - The name of this species is roxellana, and there is a story behind it. It is believed that they were called this way after the supposedly snub-nosed courtesan of Suleiman the Magnificent (a 16th century Sultan of the Ottoman Empire). - They were called like this because of the resemblance of their mustache to that of German Emperor Wilhelm II. - Patagonia Mara is the fourth largest rodent on our planet. There are several interesting facts about them. Females often put offsprings into crèches for safety. - Fluffy cows are looked after by people whose work is to wash, dry and use products to style these animals, so they look as fluffy as they do! It is necessary to maintain them daily, and it will take months of regular grooming until they get this lovely look of kids toys. - If you see a creature which looks as if it’s trying to catch an alien radio signal from space, it’s most likely Markhor Goat. They can grow as long as 6 ft from head to tail! - If you can’t decide if you want to have a dog or a raccoon as a pet, we have just the thing for you - raccoon dog! Despite having raccoon-like markings on their fur, they are not very closely related to the North American raccoon. - Blue Footed Booby are to catch your eye if you ever visit the Galapagos Islands. They can look a bit clumsy and comical on land, but they are excellent at flying and swimming. - Colugo has a large gliding membrane (like a flying squirrel), and they can glide for long distances between trees standing far apart. - Even if the Poodle Moth may look as if it lives in Antarctica with all this fur, in fact, it comes from Venezuela, a tropical country. Its hairs don’t serve for heating. BONUS Cloud Antelope! This species lives in the clouds (that’s why such a name)! Its bright blue fur is the reflection of cloudless blue skies in the area of its habitat. Its diet consists of sun rays and candies...

10 Exotic Animals You Can Keep as Pets at Home
How to keep an exotic pet. It can be a skunk, a fennec, or even a capybara. Above all, it’ll cost you quite a lot of money and effort to take care of one of those creatures. But if you’re ready to accept the challenges and responsibilities, pay attention to these important tips any exotic pet owner must follow. TIMESTAMPS: Capybara 1:08 Fennec 2:23 Axolotl 3:28 Sugar Glider 4:49 Genet 5:56 Hedgehog 6:56 Electric Blue Crayfish 7:43 Kinkajou 8:36 Fox 9:40 Skunk 11:14 Music: https://www.youtube.com/audiolibrary/music SUMMARY: - The capybara is a huge but very friendly rodent that can weigh up to 140 lb. This intelligent animal can make friends with anyone and gets along well with cats, dogs, and birds. You can easily train your capybara, and it won’t show any resistance or aggression. - The fennec is the size of a chihuahua, weighs no more than 3 lb, and is getting more and more popular as a pet. It is an extremely friendly creature that’s full of energy. - Despite being a popular domestic pet, the axolotl is on the verge of total extinction. Catching this amphibian in natural waters is prohibited, but it’s OK to breed it at home. - Sugar gliders are incredibly affectionate and strongly attached to their owners and the animals they live with. Flying squirrels are nonaggressive, and they respond well to voice intonation and can be trained in simple commands. - Genets get really attached to their homes. Despite its exotic looks, the genet is unpretentious. Its main needs are regular feedings and a clean tray. - Hedgehogs are good-natured and have an amazing ability to get used to home conditions quickly. Remember that hedgehogs are predators, and raw meat should be the core of their diet. - The electric blue crayfish need clean water, a large aquarium, and a place to hide in there. - The kinkajou is curious and loves following its owner wherever they go, hanging off their shoulders and sitting on their lap. They don’t really make any trouble and easily adapt to a new home. - Foxes have quite a specific character: they are devoted but independent and very curious, trustful, and playful. Finding a common language with this pet will take a long time, so you have to be patient. - Skunks are affectionate and very loyal, much like dogs. A tame skunk doesn’t use its fetid weapons at home. The main thing is to regularly comb out the animal and trim its claws. #exoticpet #animalplanet #exoticanimal Subscribe to Bright Side : https://goo.gl/rQTJZz ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Our Social Media: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/brightside/ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/brightgram/ 5-Minute Crafts Youtube: https://www.goo.gl/8JVmuC ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- For more videos and articles visit: http://www.brightside.me/

10 Shockingly Large Creatures That Actually Exist
These massive animals and creatures will give you nightmares! Subscribe to our channel: http://goo.gl/9CwQhg Compared to the size of the Earth, humans are pretty darn small. It’s just a fact of life that we already know, but we don’t necessarily “see” it until we are next to something so much bigger than us. Regardless of whether you believe in a creator, in evolution, or both, humans and animals were created to be a certain size for a reason. So when we encounter a creature that is so large that it shocks you to the core, the world definitely takes notice. When it’s an animal that is supposed to be smaller, it’s even more shocking. Scientists then desperately want to intervene and they want to know more about how this animal could have grown to such large proportions. Was it because of genetics? Nuclear waster? An anomaly in the animal kingdom? These creatures certainly prove that we still have a lot to learn about the world around us. In this video are ten shockingly large creatures that actually exist. From creatures that were meant to be small, to creatures that are out of this world in their size, we have to wonder whether or not bigger is always better? Some of these creatures were intentionally modified to grow to their incredible size while others have genetics and Mother Nature to thank! You could even consider some of these creatures as additional wonders to the world. While we would like to think that we know everything about the world around us, we have only skimmed the surface.

Jinjing The Penguin - Swims 5000 Miles Every Year To Visit The Man Who Saved Him
This is a story about Jinjing the South American Magellanic Penguin, that swims 5,000 miles each year to be reunited with the man who saved his life. The rescued Penguin was saved by João Pereira de Souza, a 73 year old part-time fisherman, who lives in an island village just outside Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Joao found the tiny penguin, at his local beach lying on rocks, it was covered in oil, could barely move and was close to death. Joao cleaned the oil off the penguin's feathers and fed him a daily diet of fish to build his strength. He named the penguin Jin Jing. Every year the Penguin leaves to the breeding grounds and then returns to Joao. Thanks for watching Note: Some say the penguins name is Dindin, but when I was researching this story, I found the Wall Street Journal had both a website article & a video covering the story saying the penguins name is Jinjing. ► Here is Article Link = https://www.wsj.com/articles/beached-in-brazil-a-young-penguin-finds-his-human-soul-mate-1445560828 ____________________________________________________________________ ► Wonder World Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/wonderworld.ytc.10 ► Wonder World Twitter - https://twitter.com/WonderWorld_YTC For business enquiries, content submission or copyright concerns or disputes, please contact us me

10 Cute Animals That Can Actually Kill You
How to survive a wild animal attack? Some animals look harmless and cute, but they can easily kill you. Could you have ever imagined that some of the nicest-looking animals might seriously harm you? Take a look at 10 adorable but very dangerous animals. To make you feel a little bit better, we added a bonus. TIMESTAMPS Leopard Seal 0:41 Pandas 1:26 Swan 2:25 Anteater 3:08 Tasmanian devil 3:57 Elephant 4:46 Pufferfish 5:28 Poison dart frog 6:05 Dolphin 6:39 Slow Loris 7:30 BONUS FACT 8:24 SUMMARY - Leopard Seals have a very diverse diet: they eat krill, different kinds of fish, marine mammals and King and even Emperor penguins! So, basically, there is almost nothing they can’t eat! - Pandas look so innocent and helpless that they became a symbol of peace and kindness. Their dark eyes make you want to hug them! However, you’d better not mess with a panda. If you accidentally cross its territory, a panda can seriously hurt you. - There was even a case when a man drowned because of a swan attack. A bird charged the man’s boat and capsized it, and after the man tried to swim to the shore, the swan blocked him. - Anteaters look rather scruffy and definitely harmless. However, pay attention to its claws. It mainly uses them to excavate food, but it won’t hesitate to use them to defend itself. - Tasmanian devils are nocturnal animals which means that they only hunt at night. They have a perfect sense of smell and very good coordination, so it’s very difficult to see them. - We see more and more human deaths caused by elephant attacks. It looks like a planned revenge. Now they are responsible for about 500 human deaths per year. - You have probably heard about the famous Japanese mean called Fugu. This kind of dinner may be your last if the chef makes even the slightest mistake while removing the liver. - There are a few types of poison frogs, and the level of toxicity varies. They can be yellow, copper green, red, blue and black, but the most dangerous kind is golden. It can easily kill ten adults if they touch it. - Dolphins definitely have high intelligence, which, unfortunately sometimes results in harm. They don’t kill humans often, but we recommend thinking twice before approaching dolphins especially in the wild. - Slow Loris is the only venomous primate in the world! If this cutie bites you, you should know that it wasn’t an accident. - If you are really fond of cute animals, but they turn out to be outrageously dangerous, you can get toy versions of them. Such cute things will make your day better.

7 Animals That Are Practically Immortal
Have you ever heard anything about immortal animals? Well, okay, almost immortal? No-no, they are not ghouls or something. But you’d definitely find them real-life horrors! These "zombies" of the animal world that can survive even fatal injuries might shock you. Especially the last one. Other videos you might like: A Unique Creature on Earth That Can Never Be Killed https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o8893cgbUfg& What Will Happen to Humans Before 2050? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cip3LmqQ7Y0& 10 Creatures That Prove Superpowers Actually Exist https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tQAHNXWbSbU& TIMESTAMPS: Cockroaches 0:36 Fruit flies 3:09 A toad 4:07 A chicken 5:58 Snakes 6:58 Dancing squid 8:36 The Immortal Jellyfish 9:27 Music by Epidemic Sound https://www.epidemicsound.com/ SUMMARY: - If a roach loses its head, it’ll not only survive the injury that’s fatal for most creatures, but even thrive! For some time, at least. - Roaches breathe through tiny holes, or spiracles, in each of their body parts, and that’s not controlled by the brain either. So when a cockroach is beheaded, its body can still react to simple things, breathe, and even run on its own. - Fruit flies can also live without their head, but that pretty much doesn’t even faze them at all! A headless fruit fly can survive for several days seemingly without even noticing! - In 2016, Jill Fleming, a student at the University of Massachusetts, found a toad in the woods that was virtually headless. It’s unclear what happened to the poor little guy, but it didn’t seem to mind its unique situation. - Whatever took the toad’s head off hadn’t touched the brain stem, which is responsible for many simple reactions. - If some kind soul would take such a creature home and perhaps tube-feed it, it just might survive for years! That’s exactly what happened to one chicken in 1945. - Snakes retain their biting reflex for up to an hour after their head is severed from the body. And while a live snake would only release a small part of its venom and run away, leaving you a chance at survival, a beheaded one would give you all it has left in its venom sacs. - A Japanese dish called “odori don,” or “dancing squid,” relies entirely on the effects of the soy sauce. A squid is served on your plate without any signs of life. However, when you pour soy sauce over its body, it starts squirming right before your eyes! - The Immortal Jellyfish start their lives as tiny larvae, which then produce a colony of polyps attached to the ocean floor. When this colony grows, it gradually becomes a fully developed jellyfish.

15 Human Body Parts That Will Disappear One Day
15 Useless Body Parts That We Don't Really Need. We can surprisingly live without these 15 body parts. If you ever thought that all people are built the same, think again. If you thought that all our body parts are vitally important, you were not right again. In the first chapter of The Descent of Man, Charles Darwin identified roughly a dozen body parts that he gleefully described as "useless, or nearly useless." Darwin's catalog was far from complete: our bodies are littered with the parts we don't need. TIMESTAMPS Body hair 1:01 Paranasal sinuses 1:40 Extrinsic ear muscles 2:05 Wisdom teeth 2:45 Neck rib 3:39 Palmaris muscle 4:20 Male nipples 4:54 Arrector pili muscles 5:36 Appendix 6:39 Thirteenth rib 7:40 Coccyx 8:10 Third eyelid 8:57 Darwin's point 9:37 Subclavius muscle 10:20 Toes 10:48 SUMMARY - Apparently, most hair on the human body serves no function, so it is very likely to get extinct in the future! Besides brows perhaps, they keep sweat from our eyes. - And we have a lot: frontal, ethmoidal, sphenoidal, maxillary sinuses. In fact, no one knows why we still have these troublesome mucus-lined cavities! - Some animals, rabbits, and dogs, for example, can move their ears independently. How does it happen? Thanks to these exotic-sounding muscles. But you know what? People also have them! - As human jaws have become smaller in the process of evolution, the rest of people simply don’t have space in their mouths for these teeth! Back in the days when toothpaste didn’t exist, they were kind of backup grinders. - Have you never heard about neck ribs? It is a set of cervical ribs, possibly a leftover from the age of reptiles. They still appear in less than 1 percent of the population. - There is a long narrow muscle running from the elbow to the wrist. It is already missing in 11 percent of humans today, so it is a safe bet that with time it will disappear completely. - Nipples are present in both males and females. Men generally lack the necessary levels of prolactin to stimulate lactation and typically cannot produce milk. - Goosebumps are the indicator of them at work. We get them when we are frightened, amazed or cold. Apparently, we have lost most of the fur and acquired warm clothes. We don’t need any additional protection from freezing temperatures or the source to intimidate our rivals anymore. - Some research shows that an appendix can be, in fact, useful! It might store special bacteria good for those who suffer from diarrhea. - Our closest cousins, chimpanzees, and gorillas have an extra set of ribs. What about humans? Most of us have 12, except for 8% of adults - they have an extra one! - It's all that is left of the tail that most mammals still use for balance and communication. What is more, there have been 100 documented cases of babies who were born with a tail. What is the purpose of a tail-bone? There is none. - A third eyelid, you will ask, do we have it? Yes, we, humans, retain a tiny fold in the inner corner of the eye. It is what is left from a membrane birds, and mammals have had for protecting the eye and sweeping out debris, at the same time providing visibility. - Darwin's point is a small folded point of skin toward the top of each ear that is occasionally found in modern humans. It may be a remnant of a larger shape that helped to focus distant sounds. Nowadays only 10% of people have this “greeting from the past.” - Subclavius muscle is a small muscle which stretches under the shoulder from the first rib to the collarbone. It would be beneficial if humans were still walking on all fours. - Scientists have found out that humans used to walk and balance more in the middle of their feet, but now we have gradually transferred to balancing more toward the side of our big toe. Do you think this future is a likely one? Share your opinion in the comments!

10 Extinct Animals Scientists Are Ready to Bring Back
Do you know that scientists are almost ready to bring back some species that have been long gone? A T-Rex and other dangerous creatures aren't on the VIP list, so we won't see them in the not-so-distant future. But some of our most beloved characters from the Ice Age movies can be brought back to life! Instead of using the controversial term “cloning,” scientists prefer to say “make un-extinct.” To-may-to, to-mah-to, the idea is the same. An animal that died out thousands of years ago can't be brought back to life unless it's cloned. And therein lies the problem. For successful cloning, scientists need to have almost completely undamaged animal DNA. That's why some species are more likely to be resurrected than others. Those animals that died out not so long ago are better candidates for un-extinction. They might still be preserved in museums or in permafrost that formed during the most recent ice age. TIMESTAMPS: The woolly mammoth 2:01 The saber-toothed tiger 3:00 The Moa 3:48 The ground sloth 4:27 The dodo 5:19 Woolly rhinoceros 6:12 The Irish elk 6:44 The Baiji river dolphin 7:26 The Siberian unicorn 8:05 The Neanderthal 8:55 #extinctanimals #siberianunicorn #iceage Music: https://www.youtube.com/audiolibrary/music SUMMARY: - While most of the woolly mammoths died out about 10,000 years ago, there was a population of about 500 to 1,000 of them living on Wrangel Island as recent as 1650 B.C.E. The woolly mammoth was roughly the size of an African elephant. - The saber-toothed tiger was about the size of your typical modern-day big cats. It weighed from 200 to 600 pounds and could get up to 13 feet long. The saber-toothed tiger usually had a muscular neck, bobbed tail, powerful front legs, and dagger-like teeth that protruded from the upper jaw and could grow just under a foot long! - The moa was a huge flightless bird that looked kinda like an ostrich, minus the wings. We know of about 10 members of the moa family. Some were no bigger than a turkey while others reached a height of 10 feet, making this bird the largest that has ever inhabited our planet. - Ground sloths are likely to be successfully resurrected since they were still walking the Earth about 8,000 years ago. Even better, some samples of their DNA have already been received from undamaged hairs of this animal. - The dodo became extinct just 80 years after it had been discovered. Its only known habitat was Mauritius Island, where the dodo had been living peacefully for who knows how long until the Dutch showed up in the 1590s. - Besides the woolly mammoth, there’s one more fluffy extinct creature, the woolly rhinoceros, that scientists want to bring back. This animal still lived in the Arctic snows pretty recently, about 10,000 years ago. This furry rhino is quite famous too; it often makes an appearance in ancient cave art, like in the French Chauvet-Pont-d'Arc Cave. - The Irish elk, also called the giant deer, was one more animal that didn't quite manage to survive the Ice Age. This creature mostly died out about 12,000 years ago. But researchers have discovered Irish elk fossils in Siberia that are only 7,000 to 8,000 years old. - The Baiji river dolphin went extinct in 2006, making it the first cetacean (that’s whales, dolphins, and porpoises) to die out directly due to the negative impact of human activity. It's obvious by now that since the extinction is quite recent, there’s a sea of DNA samples at hand that make resurrection pretty much a guaranteed success. - A Siberian unicorn skull discovered in Kazakhstan proved that the animal had actually disappeared just 29,000 years ago. That’s good news for people who wanna see a real unicorn someday! - Bringing the Neanderthal back would be the easiest task of them all. Scientists already have a map of its genome. It’s not a question of whether or not we can, but if we should… Subscribe to Bright Side : https://goo.gl/rQTJZz ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Our Social Media: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/brightside/ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/brightgram/ 5-Minute Crafts Youtube: https://www.goo.gl/8JVmuC ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- For more videos and articles visit: http://www.brightside.me/

10 Things That Will Happen When Humans Go Extinct
What will the Earth be like when humans go extinct?? Subscribe to our channel: http://goo.gl/9CwQhg This topic is rather morbid, but we do have a wild fascination for theories as to how our world could end. We have been taught for years that everything that begins must have an ending, and considering how long Earth has been around, the clock is ticking for our home planet. And because we are more fascinated by how things will end than just accepting our inevitable demise, hundreds of theories have emerged in order to try to hypothesize and make sense of it all. Just as the dinosaurs are extinct, everyone wonders for a period of time (or two) just how far away humanity is from extinction, and just how it will happen. Some of the theories are fairly peaceful, but there are others that are truly terrifying. Here are some of the most devastating ways that humanity could end. The first theory is pretty real since we are in the midst of it; global warming. The years 2005 and 2010 were the warmest years compared to the previous century, and the result of global warming is bizarre climate change. With the funky seasons and weather conditions that have plagued us in the 21st century, one has to wonder if maybe we’ve gone too far with our pollution and are on our way to meet our end because of our own foolish actions. The next theory is death by asteroid, which is pretty scary considering that we don’t have much control over the course of massive rocks that could hit our planet at any moment. Our Earth and Moon have been hit with asteroids before, which is speculated as to that was what killed the dinosaurs. The next thing that could wipe out humanity is a pandemic. With the Ebola scare, and other unknown illnesses that are killing people left and right, it is rather easy to spread a massive virus and do some population control. While vaccines are being perfected every day, they have to be updated annually because viruses and diseases are constantly adapting and evolving. That is scary in of itself right there. Speaking of illnesses, there has even been several rumors that the government is working on mind-control viruses as a biological weapon, thus setting off a zombie apocalypse. But let us not forget that we can also literally kill ourselves with nuclear war. With governments of various countries constantly pointing weapons at each other with veiled threats (for now), it’s only a matter of time before one side starts firing and sets off a rapid fire exchange of nuclear weapons, thus killing millions and setting off a nuclear winter that could last for years. The next thing that could kill humanity is something that you are using right at this very moment; your computer. Computers are being used in almost every aspect of everyday life from work, to home, medical facilities, shopping, dining, and more. What would happen if computers would ever become aware? It’s not like there is anything that humanity could give back to them in order to survive. From Mother Nature to our own hand, there are so many devastating ways that humanity could end. The question and mystery that remains is the how.

The Truth Behind the Mermaid Myth
Do mermaids really exist? How do these half-human half-fish mythical sea creatures look? Does Aquaman live among mermaids? Anyway, one of the interesting things about legends is that entirely different parts of the world describe seeing the exact same thing for centuries! Believe it or not, scientists and historians have been interested in the mermaid’s existence for years. TIMESTAMPS: The first mermaid 2:14 Mermaids in Japanese folklore 3:28 Mermaids in African folklore 3:46 Mermaids in Russian folklore 4:15 Unconfirmed sightings in the past years 5:30 Christopher Columbus’s mermaid sighting 6:32 Why manatees could be mistaken for mermaids 6:55 Could mermaid body function? 8:31 Music: https://www.youtube.com/audiolibrary/music SUMMARY: - The first mermaid, according to legends, is Atargatis, the ancient Syrian goddess of the sea. She didn’t start out as a mermaid, though. - Like most legends, that of the mermaid spans across cultures. In Japanese folklore, there’s the Ningyo, which is a giant fish with a human face and a monkey’s mouth. - In Russia, they have the Rusalka, a water nymph in Slavic mythology that’s been portrayed as both good and evil. - In Norway and parts of Scotland, they have the Finfolk, who were shape-shifters of the sea. They have an affinity for silver and tend to make humans their slaves. - The hype continues even today. Unconfirmed (and probably false) sightings have been reported all over the world in the past years. - One thing’s for sure, no one has actually seen, met, or caught a real mermaid, alive or not. Even Christopher Columbus’s mermaid sighting in 1493 was debunked by experts. - From afar, manatees are about the size of a human, their front flippers could resemble an arm from a distance, and their neck vertebrae allow them to turn their heads around like we do. - The human part of the mermaid wouldn’t be able to withstand a life in cold oceanic waters. That is, not unless mermaids have a thick layer of hair like sea otters or blubber like other marine mammals. #mermaids #marinemammals #syrian Subscribe to Bright Side : https://goo.gl/rQTJZz ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Our Social Media: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/brightside/ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/brightgram/ 5-Minute Crafts Youtube: https://www.goo.gl/8JVmuC ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- For more videos and articles visit: http://www.brightside.me/

10 Animals That Can Easily Outsmart Kids
10 reasons why animals are smarter than kids. Subscribe to our channel: http://goo.gl/9CwQhg For copyright matters please contact us at: [email protected] We are still learning about the animal kingdom and how it all works. It’s hard to compare the cognitive abilities of animals to those of humans. Animals use different parts of their brain, and they also sometimes use different senses to navigate through the world. You could say that comparing animals to humans is like comparing apples to oranges. With this in mind, did you know that there are several animals who are actually smarter than your stereotypical child? But since animals can't communicate the same way that we do, we have to rely on studies conducted by scientists and researchers to prove this. Comparing animals and children might be shocking to some people, especially parents. Most parents want to think of their children as the smartest beings on the planet. So the idea that a monkey is smarter than their child is almost an offensive thought. In this video, we'll introduce you to ten animals that can easily outsmart kids.

24 Animals That Are Often Confused for One Another
How to Tell Similar-looking Animals from One Another. There are approximately 7.7 million species of animals on our planet. With such an abundance of life forms, it's not surprising that people tend to confuse certain animals. We’ll teach you how to tell even the most similar looking animals from one another. You’ll never make the old mistakes again and will be able to easily find the difference between crocodiles and alligators, llamas and alpacas, leopards and jaguars and many other creatures. TIMESTAMPS Rabbits vs hares 0:46 Moths vs butterflies 1:35 Sheep vs goats 2:21 Hedgehogs vs porcupines 3:15 Llamas vs alpacas 4:11 Crocodiles vs alligators 4:56 Sea lions vs seals 5:50 Wasps vs bees 6:37 Frogs vs toads 7:15 Dolphins vs porpoises 7:54 Turtles vs tortoises 8:29 Leopards vs jaguars 9:04 Music: https://www.youtube.com/audiolibrary/music SUMMARY -Hares are typically faster and larger than rabbits. Their ears and strong hind legs are also longer, and they have bigger feet. -Butterflies have club-shaped antennae that look like a thin shaft with a bulbous tip. As for moths, their antennae are either serrated or feathery. -You will notice that sheep hold them down whereas the tails of goats proudly stay up. -Like all rodents, porcupines have big front teeth. As for hedgehogs, their snouts and teeth are pointy, and they are omnivores, feasting on insects, frogs, plants, and fruit. -Mature llamas are much larger than alpacas, whose weight typically varies between 100 lb and 170 lb. As for an adult llama, it can weigh as much as 400 lb. -Crocodiles are the lucky owners of special glands, which they use to excrete excess salt. As for alligators, their salt glands aren't so well developed. That's why they mostly live in fresh water. -Sea lions' flippers are larger and covered with skin. Seals have a thinly webbed flipper, and each small toe has a claw. Seals prefer solitude, and sea lions love gathering in big companies and hanging out with friends. -Bees are hairy: they need this feature to dip into flowers to collect pollen. Also, their rear legs are flat. Bees look more stocky. -The skin of most frogs is smooth, while a toad’s skin is thick and bumpy. Frogs' legs are long and slender, and their eyes are big and bulging. -Most dolphins have pointy faces, curved dorsal fins, and slender bodies. Porpoises have triangular back fins, robust bodies, and rounded faces. -Turtles have webbed feet as they live mostly in water, and this makes swimming easier. Also, their shells are lighter and flatter. -You can find jaguars in Central and South America and sometimes in the southwest of the USA. As for leopards, they dwell in Asia and Africa. Jaguars have smaller spots. Leopards are more slender and a bit smaller than jaguars.

17 Jaw-Dropping Facts You Didn't Know About the Human Body
What do you know about your body? These 17 Facts About the Human Body Will Send Chills Down Your Spine. These amazing facts may still be hard to swallow, but you will absolutely be all ears to hear about them. Did you love science at school? Let's face it, only a handful of us had the stomach for learning all the scientific stuff back then by heart. Today's topic will be easier to perceive. What is more, it will be much more exciting. We have 17 jaw-dropping facts about your body that may still be hard to swallow and digest, but you will be all ears to hear about them! TIMESTAMPS Your brain generates enough electricity to power a light bulb. 0:49 Human teeth are roughly as strong as shark teeth. 1:25 Stomach acid can make a hole in your skin. 1:59 The human hair is virtually indestructible. 2:44 Humans can create up to 7,000 different facial expressions. 3:09 Babies have over 60 more bones in their bodies than adults. 3:33 The resolution of the eye is estimated to be around 500 megapixels. 3:55 An adult's skin weighs around 17,6 pounds on average. 4:26 The human skeleton regenerates itself every 10 years. 4:52 Your eyes stay closed for about 10% of your waking hours. 5:14 Your kidneys filter all of your blood about 25 times a day. 5:45 The pink corner of our eye is the third eyelid. 6:15 The liver is capable of fully regenerating its original size. 6:39 Your heartbeat synchronizes with the rhythm of the music you are listening to. 7:05 The enzymes that are responsible for digesting the food will begin to digest the human body itself after death. 7:32 Some of the atoms in our bodies are stardust that is billions of years old. 7:44 In an average lifetime, the heart pumps around 53 million gallons of blood. 8:14 SUMMARY 17 Jaw-Dropping Facts You Didn't Know About the Human Body: - When you are awake, your brain is known to generate electricity in the amount of about 15-25 watts. This power is quite enough to keep a low-wattage LED lamp shining! - The fun part: the enamel which covers the top of your teeth is the hardest part of your whole body. - Hydrochloric acid is a typical "inhabitant" of a human stomach. This type of acid is industrial-grade and can, in fact, destroy metals! - Even the content of your bloodstreams such as vitamins, drugs, or alcohol, can be found out from a strand of hair analysis. - According to scientists, there are four main facial expressions: angry, afraid/surprised, happy, and sad. Based on these, all the rest of 7,000 expressions are performed. - Babies are born with as many as 270 bones. Later on, some of the bones start fusing together, for instance, the bones of the spine. - The resolution of the human eye is estimated to be around 500 megapixels. It makes them 72 times more precise than the rear camera of iPhone 6. - The skin weight makes lifting up another human being so difficult. Another interesting fact about your skin is that every square inch of it is covered with more than six hundred sweat glands. - You always have a blend of old and new bones in your body. - A person blinks on average 15 times a minute, though it is proved that women do it twice as often as men. - Only one percent of the blood they filter turn into the urine, the rest is redistributed throughout the body. A kidney of an adult isn't big at all, in fact, its size can be compared to that of a fist. - Humans retain a tiny fold in the inner corner of the eye. It is what is left from a membrane birds, and mammals have had for protecting the eye and sweeping out debris, at the same time providing visibility. - People who donate part of their liver to those who are in need, don't have to worry about their health. Their liver will soon regenerate the part which has been donated. - Music, especially the one that contains a continuous increase in volume or tempo, makes your heartbeat synchronize with it. - The enzymes make human organs start to digest the body. And they then team up with microbes, and the process of decomposition begins. - All plants, animals, your food, even your car contain pieces of distant stars. - This fist-sized organ beats around 115 thousand times a day and pumps 2,000 gallons of blood. In a lifetime, the number of its beats can reach 3 billion!

Why humans run the world | Yuval Noah Harari
Seventy thousand years ago, our human ancestors were insignificant animals, just minding their own business in a corner of Africa with all the other animals. But now, few would disagree that humans dominate planet Earth; we've spread to every continent, and our actions determine the fate of other animals (and possibly Earth itself). How did we get from there to here? Historian Yuval Noah Harari suggests a surprising reason for the rise of humanity.

The 10 Strongest Animals In The World That Were Totally Unexpected
The most powerful and strongest animals in the world can sometimes look like the most innocent so you never know what to expect in fights. On earth, the animal kingdom is so diverse and full of different creatures with varying abilities and capabilities that you don't know what to expect. Sometimes, we can pinpoint a worrisome animal just by looking at it. But, not in this case. Interested? Check out other amazing videos about our World and subscribe to the channel! ► http://bit.ly/Subscribe-to-Richest ◄ Like: 10 Most Powerful Military Weapons That Had To Be Banned https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R6qGCh1J0jQ 10 Unbelievable Animals Created With Science! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wga0OR03jvM We can usually tell by size, sharp teeth, claws, muscular structure, and other obvious features as to whether an animal could pose a threat to us. When we look at less-threatening animals, they are usually adorable and look as though they couldn’t harm a fly. But, there are also animals out there who look harmless, but once you turn your back, they will strike. There are several unseemingly demure animals which look like they would welcome human contact or converse with fellow wildlife. But like a person with two different identities, these animals are much more powerful than what one could ever imagine. Unfortunately, the only way we learn about these volatile habits is through experience. This means that someone might have got injured in order to learn about these animals the hard way. With the innovations of technology today, we can better observe these animals in their natural habitat and avoid the dangers of human contact. In this video, we’re going to talk about the ten most unexpected powerful animals in the world. Many of these animals you can see in your local zoo, and in fact, some contact is encourage. Granted, domesticated versions of these animals are not the same as these animals in the wild. But even dealing with these animals who have experience with human contact is a risk because you can never know when that wild side will be let out. So, before you go out and start cuddling random animals in the wild, know that they might turn around and give you a nice bite or even worse. At the end of the day, the phrase, “Looks can be deceiving” is definitely true!

10 Ways Humans are Still Evolving (ft. Matthew Santoro) | Shed Science
Humans are just another species of animal, and all animals evolve. Plus I was lucky enough to persuade YouTube's top ten expert Matthew Santoro to dress up and be a bit silly. So here are 10 recent adaptations modern humans have evolved in recent generations.

If You Ever See This on the Beach, Cry for Help!
How do you recognize something that you can touch and something you have to run away from as fast as possible? Here is a list of the most dangerous sea creatures you can meet and how to recognize them! There are so many different species living in the ocean! Some of them are beautiful, some are deadly, and some are both. TIMESTAMPS Fire Coral 0:40 Flower Urchin 1:20 Cone Snail 1:50 Portuguese Man-of-War 2:32 Snea snakes 3:54 Lionfish 4:51 Chironex 5:39 Surgeonfish 6:15 Indonesian needlefish 6:59 Triggerfish 7:34 SUMMARY - Fire Coral. These small organisms can sting, and the effect can be not very serious and it can be quite bad. A stung person may have severe pains, feel nauseated and even vomit, which is not the best thing to do when you are underwater. - Flower Urchin is both very beautiful and very deadly. It contains toxins that can cause anaphylactic shock, convulsions and finally death. You can get poisoned if you step on it when you are in the sea or the ocean. - Scientists say that just one drop of the cone snail’s poison is enough to kill 20 people! Just one drop! - The most mind-blowing fact about Man-of-War is that technically we should call it Men-of-War, and refer to it not as «it», but «they», and here is why: it’s an animal that is made up of a colony of organisms cooperating together. Man-of-war has tentacles that can be 30 feet long, which it uses to paralyze and kill fish and other small creatures. - Sea snakes are much more venomous than their land-living friends. As it turns out, they have to be like that because they hunt fish, so what they need to do is immobilize their prey very quickly not to let it escape. - Many people call the lionfish the most beautiful sea creature in the world. You can find them in the Caribbean and Eastern Atlantic. Lionfishes are not deadly — they do have a venom, but it’s not lethal. However, the pain you will experience if you get stung is so severe that people say you might wish you were dead. - Chironex doesn’t have any teeth, but it’s dangerous as hell. If a person gets stung, they will have excruciating pain, red inflammation in the stung area and heart dysfunction. - Surgeonfish are easily spooked, so you should be extra careful if you see one of them. Don’t make any unexpected fast moves. The good news is, surgeonfish are not aggressive unless, of course, you provoke them. - Indonesian needlefish live in tropical and subtropical waters of the oceans. They, as the name suggests, have a very sharp, needle-like beak, and they are especially dangerous when they hurl themselves out of the water. - Triggerfish is mostly friendly, but only until you are a threat to its nest. The most dangerous are females — if you approach its nest even accidentally, it will bite you. Thankfully, the bites aren’t poisonous, but triggerfish have extremely sharp teeth, so the injuries it can cause need serious medical attention. If you know about any other sea animals that we haven’t told about, let us know in the comment section below!

When A Keeper Slapped This Elephant, The Animal’s Reaction Was Astonishing
Please do not forget to visit the site http://scribol.com Subscribe to our channel:https://goo.gl/vyinsz When A Keeper Slapped This Elephant, The Animal’s Reaction Was Astonishing ************************************************************** One animal caretaker knew her elephant better than anyone. So, when she wanted her charge to do something, the animal could usually be persuaded to comply. However, when she began slapping the animal with a cloth, its reaction was surprising – and perhaps one that few people could have foreseen. The caretaker and elephant in question were in Chiang Mai, Thailand, at the Elephant Nature Park there. For the last 20 years, the organization has provided sanctuary for rescued elephants, and by allowing guests to visit its center, it hopes to teach people of the wonders of these majestic animals. --------------------------------------------------------- ►Article link:https://goo.gl/iFcNsY --------------------------------------------------------- The park was co-founded by Lek Chailert, and since its opening in 1996, Chailert and her staff have rescued around 200 elephants. Unfortunately, though, many of the animals had arrived at the center physiologically damaged by their ordeals. Still, at Elephant Nature Park, they finally found a safe haven. “We have to heal them with love,” Chailert told CBS News in 2016. “We have to let nature rehab them… make them feel that this is a safe place for them. Trust is the first thing that we have to go and do.” ************************************************************** ►You can support the channel: PATREON https://goo.gl/KtaKrp ►Image credits:YouTube/elephantnews https://goo.gl/HSH9Um ►web: http://watchjojo.com ► SUBSCRIBE US: https://goo.gl/Z4nZcg ► Follow Us On Google Plus: https://goo.gl/JYf9Rr ► Like us Our Facebook Page: https://goo.gl/C5Rv92 ► Follow On Twitter: https://goo.gl/PZ2U1R ►For more articles visit: http://scribol.com #Watchjojo #Watchjojomds #WatchjojoHealth Do not forget to visit the channel WATCHJOJO MDS https://goo.gl/Qke3Pc

"Seeing is believing" drags humans to the animal level  (Gita Daily)
For more Articles on Bhagavad Gita Click Here https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLhtmKWc6vRTDPQillQPTrs1j1xYrlDWQW Based on Bhagavad Gita Chapter 15, Text 10 The Bhagavad-gita (15.10) reproaches as deluded (vimudha) those materialists who are blind to the soul due to their overdependence on their undependable senses. "Seeing is believing" is the credo that such people use self-righteously to justify their disbelief in everything invisible. Sadly, their credo drags them down to the bestial level both intellectually and practically. Intellectually: "Seeing is believing" is a permanent progress stopper. Our advanced human intelligence enables us to infer underlying invisible principlesfrom visible phenomena. Without such inference, we can gain no deep understanding of the world -- neither scientific nor philosophical.As this dogmacensors everything invisible, it reduces our human intelligence to nought and condemns us to the same epistemological boat as animals. Practically: "Seeing is believing" drags humans down to animalistic indulgences. An animal wandering in a desert believes in the mirage that it sees and chases after the non-existent water, thereby condemning itself to perpetual thirst and eventual death. Similarly, dogmatic materialists refuse to believe in the spiritual because of its invisibility and so deprive themselves of spiritual happiness.

Where Do Domestic Cats Come From?
Do you give ancient Egypt credit for the domestication of cats? That’s what many people think! But, with some new evidence, it seems that cats became our cuddly counterparts a little further east and because of an emerging pest problem.
