    Ocean wildlife is fascinating, but at times it can be quite brutal and outright scary. However, things are not always what they seem.

    Twitter users have found themselves scratching their heads over a rather disturbing video that emerged on the platform in which a big shark-like fish is filmed being chased by a marine creature that cannot be clearly identified. Just as the fish hits the shore, it starts gushing enormous amounts of red liquid that appears to be blood, causing distress among the commenters, who believe that the fish is badly hurt. However, things are not quite that simple, as many in the comment sections pointed out that the fish is actually not a fish at all, but a pygmy sperm whale that can spurt brown-red ink to ward off predators – which they believe is exactly what happened in the footage.

      A Very Jealous Cat

      What do we know about cats? They are independent and walk on their own. For some reason, it is generally accepted that cats, unlike dogs, are not faithful, do not need to be caressed by the owners, and they see people as service personnel who are required to feed them and change the filler in the tray.
