Kamchatka is famous for its great population of bears; they also need a lot of food to survive there. Sometimes people feed them, however, that's not enough, so the bears are growing bolder in their eternal quest for sweets and snacks.
Some animals have become famous by making predictions for matches during the 2018 FIFA World Cup and some have even made accurate predictions. But sometimes it is difficult to determine whether these fluffy creatures are real oracles or their ability to foresee was just a coincidence. But no one can deny that they're at least really cute!

Sometimes people just don't have enough time for a snack or a short nap. These problems are even more pressing for cats, as they have to sleep 16 hours a day and wander all the night. Not to mention cat-kind’s most important task - to wake people up at 5:00 AM.
Wild animals are dangerous enough when we are just talking about dogs or big cats. But what about beasts that are even bigger? Only a miracle can help one escape this raging pachyderm.
Wildlife sources say his approval rating among the rodent population is nuts!
Even when you’re off to work, man’s best friend stays alert!
NYU Professor David Holland and his wife Denise Holland, who are researching icebergs with their team, captured on video a rare phenomenon known as "calving" – a rift of glaciers that significantly influences global sea levels.
It is good that people don’t usually know what the interior of an active volcano look like, as nobody wants to get that close to the deadly flames. However, curiosity has prompted a pilot to look into the volcanic crater and share the video, so now we can behold the solemn sight without the associated risk.
