    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, which influences significantly on the global sea water levels.

    The video shows show a four-mile iceberg breaking off from the glacier, slowly but steadily, in order to begin a solitary voyage in the ocean. Just look; it's nothing but a gigantic bulk of pure ice and cold water- but the view sure is magnificent!

Even though it is not surprising that the creature was gobbling up the melon, as bats are generally not too picky and eat various sorts of food, this certainly is a cute scene to observe.
