A wild duck has wandered in a zoo pond to play a dangerous game of cat-and-mouse with one its residents, a Sumatran tiger. The duck decided to take a dip in the tiger’s pool but the magnificent feline wasn’t so welcoming towards his unexpected visitor. A game of chase started and it was captured in a video that went viral on social media.

The duck started cooling off in Jalur the Sumatran tiger’s pool in Symbio Wildlife Park in Helensburgh, Sydney. Not content with getting itself wet, the duck seemed to be daring the feline to catch it as it circled around the pool. Each time Jalur gets close, the duck quickly evaded him.

Meet the duck that just wants to cool off in a pond and then decided to play with a predator.

The wild duck has been considered to be the “bravest” in the world after appearing not so concerned about being close to a known predator. There was even a certain point, as seen in the video, that will surely get the audience screaming with thrill and excitement as Jalur was close enough to land itself a dinner. The feline was even ready to pounce but the duck continued splashing around and Jalur had already missed its target.

Eventually, Jalur got tired of chasing the feathered creature that he gave up and let the duck be. He jumped onto a rock and forgot about what was supposed to be a surprise meal.

Jalur, a resident at Symbio Wildlife Park, agreed to play with the mischievous duck that constantly dives and surfaces up the pond.

Jalur just can’t get to its playmate.

It’s a game of now you see the duck…

… and now you don’t!

Jalur must be frustrated not being able to catch the duck despite being a known predator.

Sorry Jalur, Mr. Duck just seems to be awesome when it comes to evading capture.

Eventually, the Sumatran tiger gave up on the chase and got out of the water.

The animal kingdom is never short of strange-looking species that never fail to amaze us. As if these scary creatures that live in the dark depths of the ocean are not enough to wow us, we find more reasons to be awe-struck.

You see, while some animals are outright freaky, some just look utterly incredible, and well...transparent. Yes, you read it right - transparent. We can literally see through the skin and scales of these animals and see what's within, behind, or beneath them.

You might notice that most of these transparent creatures live under the sea and wonder why is that. Well, according to Sönke Johnsen of Scientific Americans, it all boils down to something called "self-preservation." Because these animals do not have teeth, toxins, or anything that can protect them from predators, nature awarded them with customized versions of invisibility cloaks!

Humans are generally wary of large predators like alligators and crocodiles - thanks to the numerous movies and video clips that depict them as savage, man-eating carnivores. That is why when a certain giant alligator nonchalantly sauntered around a wildlife reserve in Florida in the United States, many were inevitably awed.

Kim Joiner was able to capture the anxiety-inducing moment when Humpback walked right past her. Estimating its length at around 12-feet, she confirmed feeling a bit "nervous" as the large 'gator passed by.

Meet "Humpback," an unbelievably enormous alligator that was spotted strolling around Circle B Bar Reserve in Polk County, Florida.

In a new BBC show called Spy in the Wild, the secret life of wild animals was captured using robotic animals fitted with ultra high definition cameras. The results give us amazing glimpse of the most intimate, thrilling and remarkable scenes ever witnessed in nature.

In this particular video, Spy in the Wild follows a fake baby monkey with camera eyes as it infiltrates a crew of Langur monkeys.

The curious monkeys take their turns inspecting the weird animal. Until one clumsy monkey drops the robot and then they all think it's dead. Then they gather around and have a little wake for the accidental death of the poor 'baby'.
