Sharks are fierce, strong, and scary. The minute it bites its prey with its sharp teeth, you’ll know that there’s no escape and that you’ve seen the last of its victim. Sharks are at the top of the food chain, and no one doubts that.

Dogfish sharks are not considered dangerous; however, they do have sharp teeth that can seriously injure its prey. Also, the spines on their dorsal fins are slightly poisonous. Dogfish sharks otherwise called skittle dog, spotted dogfish, cod shark, white-spotted dogfish, thorndog, or piked dogfish, predominantly feed on fish, although they eat squid and octopus too.

In a huge aquarium where dogfish sharks and other sea creatures such as this giant, pacific octopus dwell, you’ll probably think that the sharks have plenty to prey on. However, the staff wondered why shark carcasses keep turning up, so they decided to set up cameras to solve the conundrum.

Apparently, they did.

Upon realizing the reason for her toy's disappearance, the adorable golden retriever went out for a search-and-rescue operation which culminated with her finding the precious toy in the wash tub. Luckily, her humans filmed her in the act of snatching her toy away from the sudsy chamber.

This Special Bee from the Himalayas Prove that Psychedelic Honey Exists

Sometimes nature can really trip us in the strangest ways possible. Take this psychedelic honey-producing bee, for one.

The Himalayan cliff bee (Apis dorsata laboriosa), which dwells deep in the caves of the Himalayas, is the largest known bee in the world. However, that feat isn't the only remarkable thing about this bee, apparently. Since the Himalayan cliff bee produces its honey from rhododendron flowers which are known to be toxic to humans, the resulting honey has hallucinogenic properties.

Called by locals as mad honey, the hallucinogenic honey supposedly has numerous health benefits; however, if consumed in large doses, it could induce vomiting, nausea, muscle weakness, and cardiac issues. Despite its risky nature, the honey is still being sought out by the locals.

They hoped these people would change their minds about cats.

Are you a cat person? What do you think of that gentle, agile animal with sharp fangs and claws?

Personally, I don’t like them; I’m more of a dog person.
For me, cats seem cunning. They’re silent and sweet, but sometimes I fear that they’ll turn on me with those claws and hurt me. Of course, I know I’m wrong, otherwise there won’t be any cat-lovers out there. With that, though, I must say that I somehow understand these people’s reactions when they were asked to “meet” these kittens.

Buzzfeed conducted an experiment to see if these people's perception of the feline would change if they have a brief moment alone with cute kittens. Who could resist innocent and gentle babies, right? Even if they’re baby versions of an animal you dislike?
