Sea Lion Stuns Unsuspecting Fisherman


We CANNOT stop laughing over this poor fisherman whose fish was stolen by a stealthy seal.

Yvan Mucharrz was posing with his catch along with Mike "The Griz" Ritz during filming of a fishing show in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. Apparently this seal has been seen frequently around the docks and locals have named him Pancho.

Mucharrz was standing close to the end of the boat posing for photos, when out of nowhere the seal jumped up and snagged the catch by its tail. The rest is history.

ANSWERED: What Does the Fox Say?

Earlier this week the music video “What Does the Fox Say” took the internet by storm racking up more than 2 million views in just three days. Aside from adding the track to our Christmas party playlist, we here at Animal Planet decided that we must answer! 

Depending on the message the fox is trying to convey, he or she will make a variety of calls. According to Popular Science, the most commonly heard fox vocalizations are a quick series of barks, and a scream-like variation of a howl.   

The video below features recordings of several fox calls.
