Mimic Octopus: Master of Disguise
 
01:29
This is the mimic octopus. A master of disguise. In its natural state, the mimic octopus is a light beige color. And like most octopi can change its skin pigment to blend in with its surroundings, but the mimic octopus takes things to another level altogether Found in Indonesia and in the Great Barrier Reef, it’s an octopus that is so intelligent, when it feels threatened, it can fool possible predators into thinking that it is in fact, another, more deadly species. It does this by changing its color, shape and perhaps most interestingly the way it moves and behaves. It is reputed to be able to impersonate 15 other kinds of sea creature, the most notable being the poisonous flatfish, deadly sea snakes, and the highly venomous lionfish. It’s thought that even though these impersonations aren’t flawless, they can give the crafty octopus enough time to escape before the predator realizes it’s been duped. The mimic octopus was discovered relatively recently, in 1998 - possibly because up until then, it had done such a good job of blending in!

Looking Back At 1970s Fashion
 
02:34
It was a decade personified by sartorial flare - from cut to creativity; there are some standout trends that truly defined the 1970s. Some of the grooviest jumpsuits ever made were worn by both men and women in the 70’s, with legends like David Bowie leading the way. Bell bottoms or flares were the ultimate statement piece - made popular by the likes of Abba, Cher, even Michael Jackson. When it came to flares, the frillier, wider, and altogether more outrageous the better. The miniskirts of the swinging sixties were old news in comparison to the transparent clothing movement pioneered in the 70s by the likes of Ossie Clark and YSL. Platforms are the most iconic pieces of footwear of the decade and even the 20th century; this glam rock footwear encouraged gender politics after both men and women chose to wear the height boosting shoes. And whilst attitudes have shifted since then, there’s one unmistakable look that has barely changed since it came screaming into the limelight in the 1970’s… Inspired by the anarchic underworld inhabited by the likes of The New York Dolls, The Ramones and The Sex Pistols, punk exploded onto the scene in the 70s with leather clad mohawked youths using safety pins like no generation before. Perhaps the biggest testament to 1970s fashion is the way it’s continued to inspire us, even decades later.

Jessica The House Hippo
 
02:09
Jessica is no ordinary hippo. Her story begins in March 2000, when disaster stuck in Hoedspruit, South Africa; a flood swept the newborn hippo away from her mother and onto Tonie and Shirley Joubert’s farm. Underweight and with her umbilical cord still attached, things didn’t look good for this little orphan. But the Jouberts took her in and an instant bond formed. 17 years on and Jessica, who comes and goes as she pleases, is frequently seen napping on the veranda, watching TV and enjoying a soothing massage.

Stupendous Submarine Volcanoes
 
03:13
This is the moment that a volcano erupts underneath the sea… Although relatively little is known about them, it’s believed there are over 1 million submarine volcanoes, largely located along the mid-atlantic ridge. These volcanoes are responsible for producing 75% of the earth’s magma. Underwater volcanoes are understood to work like their counterparts on dry land. They form towering mountains submerged well below sea level - some reported to rise as much as 10,000 feet above the seabed. Whilst it’s relatively rare to see, these eruptions can also create new islands above the water. On November 14th, 1963, a trawler sailing just south of Iceland noticed a plume of smoke billowing from the sea. Thinking it was a fire on board another ship, they travelled towards what was, in fact an underwater volcano erupting and witnessed the birth of a new island. It was named Surtsey after fire giants of Norse mythology. Today, the island of Surtsey is a UNESCO world heritage site, and the only people allowed to set foot on it are the scientists studying the ecosystem and geology of this unspoiled isle. It’s thought that Iceland itself was created in this way by underwater volcanoes, millions of years ago. So whilst it may be rare to see one erupt, these submarine volcanoes have a big part to play in shaping the world above water.

Wildlife Of Chernobyl
 
03:01
Wildlife can flourish in the most extreme places; including within the exclusion zone of the worst nuclear disaster the world has ever seen, Chernobyl. In 1986, a reactor exploded in the Ukrainian nuclear facility. A deadly fire raged for days, claiming the lives of 31 men who were first on the scene. Since then, potentially many thousands more lives have been lost from the effects of radiation. At the time of the disaster, 600,000 workers arrived to help clean the contamination on-site and in the surrounding area. Chernobyl was declared too radioactively dangerous for full time human habitation for at least 24,000 years, and a thousand square mile exclusion zone was put into place, meaning the towns and villages near Chernobyl were abandoned. Although tourists are permitted to make day trips today, with no human residents in 30 years, wildlife has reclaimed the land. It’s thought the lack of human interference counteracts any negative effects of radiation on the wild population. Wolves, foxes and bears are all commonplace. Dogs roam the abandoned streets, descended from pets that were left behind 30 years ago. And in the 1990’s the endangered Przewalski's horse was introduced to the area as part of a conservation program. Although the long-term effect on most animals in the exclusion zone is unknown, 8 feet long catfish in the area’s radioactive cooling ponds have been spotted. It’s not yet known if they’ve grown so big because of changes to their DNA, or simply because of a lack of fishing. There are still many unknowns about the long-term effects on the wildlife of Chernobyl, but it certainly makes for a fascinating place to see animals in this unique, unintended nature reserve.

Why Do Spinner Dolphins Spin?
 
01:43
Have you ever seen a dolphin that jumps like this? The spinner dolphin is a true athlete of the seas. Found all over the world in huge pods of up to 200, these dolphins have been known to gather in super pods of more than 1000 and mega pods of over 3000! But why do they spin? Well, there are a few theories: Some think that the sound of the slap as the dolphin belly flops back into the water lets the rest of their pod, and even distant dolphins know where they are. Others speculate that the splash helps a dolphin to accent an emotion, like we do with an exclamation point; communicating happiness to anger or fear. And some observers feel that they spin above the surface to rid themselves of parasites. And although no one is 100% sure why they do it, the spinner dolphin is surely one of the most incredible animals on earth!

Cape Town's Werewolf Cat
 
02:02
When a litter of stray kittens was found abandoned in Cape Town vets had no idea that one of them would turn out to be… a Werewolf Cat. Officially known as a Lykoi, this is an incredibly rare breed of cat that has only been recognized as such since 2011. What’s more, experts are baffled by naturally occurring litters of feral Lykoi around the world. Known to enjoy hunting, groups of Lykoi display a pack mentality - very much like wolves, but once they trust a human, the breed does have a softer side that seems to outweigh the spooky. Which is perhaps why Lykoi kittens are attracting a price tag of around $2000.

The Secret World Of Geishas
 
02:34
Geisha are an iconic symbol of Japanese culture, instantly recognisable around the world. Assumptions and stereotypes about geisha are rampant, but you might not know the real story behind the cultural phenomenon. The first geisha were men. Geisha translates to "arts person" and these men provided entertainment for people in the pleasure districts of Japan, from around the 1600’s.The first woman geisha was documented in 1751. Becoming a geisha takes years of training. An apprentice geisha is known as a ‘maiko’, and will train for three to five years, mastering traditional skills like calligraphy, musical instruments, flower arranging and the art of conversation. They continue to practice these arts every day for the rest of their careers. Geisha sometimes paint their teeth black as hundreds of years ago, this was considered beautiful. The practise was banned in 1870 as part of a government effort to modernise the country. But some geisha still practice teeth blackening at the ceremony where maiko become geisha. Geisha normally continue working as long as they can, some into their eighties and nineties. Generally, a geisha cannot marry unless she chooses to leave the profession, as the roles of wife and geisha are not seen as compatible, but a geisha may have lovers and even bear children. Geisha is a dying way of life in Japan. There are far fewer geisha today than before; in the 1920s, there were over eighty thousand geisha in the country, but now, the figure is estimated to be between one and five thousand. So whilst you might be lucky enough to spot a geisha in the street or performing at a public event, being entertained by geisha is a privilege only for high status individuals. In fact, people pay up to 2000 us dollars per person to attend the exclusive ‘tea houses’ of the geisha. Perhaps that’s why the world of the geisha is one of such intrigue to the outside.

The Enduring Bromance Of Matt Damon And Ben Affleck
 
02:32
They’ve supported each other through unemployment, fame, fatherhood...and some questionable haircuts. There’s something very special about the enduring bromance of Matt Damon and Ben Affleck, and here are some of their most memorable moments. Starting with...them both bringing their mums to the Oscars in 1998. Shooting to fame together after writing the award winning ‘Good Will Hunting’, the duo seemed unstoppable. But their journey started decades before the runaway success of the film; growing up two blocks from each other in Cambridge, Massachusetts. They bonded over a love of movies, shared the highs and lows of trying to make it in show business In fact, the pair began writing Good Will Hunting after Affleck supported Damon, who had just dropped out of Harvard. And when Affleck and wife Jennifer Garner separated, Matt Damon stood up for his friend when questioned by the Hollywood Reporter, saying “There’s nobody who’s more misunderstood” Maybe it’s that sort of support that won the pair the prestigious ‘Guys of the Decade award during Spike TV's 10th annual guys choice awards. And in 2017, almost 20 years after their first Oscar win, the pair was reunited at the academy awards - and looked just as close. There’s more good news for Damon-Affleck super-fans - they’re planning to work on a new pilot together, to be set in Boston. Perhaps the most touching piece of their friendship is that between them, the pals have seven children, and in true bromantic style, they all hang out together, so even future generations of Affleck and Damon will enjoy the legendary bond that their dads share.

Inside the World's Biggest Voodoo Market
 
01:58
Found in Lome, the capital city of Togo, The Akodessewa Fetish Market sells a range of voodoo ingredients and talismans. It’s a place where you can buy everything from carvings to animal skulls - used in a variety of voodoo medicines. The bones are ground up and burned to form a black powder, which can be consumed, or rubbed onto open wounds. Over 100 healers work in the market, offering consultations for less than four dollars; their knowledge is passed down through generations. There are a number of reasons that a person might visit a healer other than illness; to improve the skills of a goalkeeper, for example, a practitioner might apply powder made from a gorilla’s hand, and parts of a horse are said to improve running abilities. Voodoo is often associated with New Orleans and Haiti, but it began in West Africa, around 6000 years ago, making it far older than any of the major religions around the world today. Over half the population of Togo practise indigenous religions, of which voodoo is the largest. People travel from far and wide to visit the Akodessewa Fetish Market, which is considered to be one of the most notable locations for this key part of West African culture.

Pablo Escobar's Narco Hippos - Mystery History

Hippos are known to live in Africa, but there’s a thriving wild population six and a half thousand miles away in Colombia; a place that they would never be if it wasn’t for one thing...cocaine. In the 1980s, Colombia was gripped by a violent drugs war and notorious drug lord Pablo Escobar was the head of a cartel and an empire worth an estimated 30 billion dollars. Escobar's lavish property, Hacienda Napoles, boasted its own private safari, complete with a selection of exotic animals, illegally smuggled into the country. When Escobar died, his hippos broke free and multiplied, leaving Colombian authorities with a rather puzzling and dangerous new species to deal with.

Why Do Narwhal’s Have a ‘Unicorn’ Horn?
 
01:29
The icy waters of the Arctic are home to a magical creature; the narwhal. It can grow to over 5 meters, has a tusk that resembles a unicorn’s horn, and can live for up to 50 years. Male narwhals, and around 15% of all female narwhals grow a long spiral tooth that resembles a spiral sword-like tusk. These tusks can grow to just shy of 2.7 meters long, and there are several theories about why they have them; including hunting, using as ice picks, weapons, for sexual selection, or as a tool for echolocation. A recent theory also suggests that the tusks act as a sensory device, covered in thousands of nerve endings, helping them to analyse their environment. One researcher likened it to the kind of feeling a human would have in a broken tooth. Narwhals are hunted for these ivory horns, which can fetch around $16,000, and whilst some forms of narwhal hunting are legal, illegal poaching still takes place. This, combined with environmental changes means that sadly, the narwhal isn’t just a magical species, it’s a vulnerable one.

Sleepin' With The Fishes - Fascinating Ways Animals Rest Underwater
 
01:52
Life underwater can be tiring, and figuring out how to get a good night’s rest takes some creative solutions… When sperm whales are ready for 40 winks, they sleep vertically near the surface, suspended in the water for 10-15 minutes at a time, the whales don’t breath or move when they rest like this. When little sea turtles get sleepy, they can rest like this at the bottom of the sea for 4-7 hours. A common misconception about sharks is that they have to keep swimming or they drown, so they are constantly awake. Studies have found that sharks do sleep, just not in the same unconscious way that humans do. Some species move whilst they sleep and others rest in a strong current to allow water to pass through their gills. The manatee rests in short bursts throughout the day and night, coming up to breath every 3-5 minutes. Some scientists believe that when they come up for air, manatees don’t fully wake up, so they’re basically sleepwalking! When a parrotfish is ready for bed it sleeps in a cocoon of mucus. The reasons for this aren’t fully understood but it’s believed that the slimy sac could be a warning system alerting them to predators, and it’s even been speculated that it’s a kind of mosquito net to keep parasites away. Who knew that sleeping with the fishes could be so fascinating!

Orca Sneak Attacks
 
02:17
The orca may be one of the largest predators in the ocean - but it can also be incredibly sneaky when it needs to be. Here are some of the species’ top surprise attacks... As the suns sets on this beach in Patagonia, these carefree seal pups are frolicking in the surf. Until, a fin emerges…before any of the seals can react, an orca glides in, snatching an unlucky pup and slinking back into the deep. Orcas are the only whale species known to purposely beach in this way. The adept hunters have a large brain that enables them to come up with techniques like beaching to catch unsuspecting prey. This extraordinary footage captures a young seal as it is flung into the air with the flick of an orca’s tail, before almost certainly becoming a snack. There are a number of theories about why orcas do this: To stun or injure their prey, making it less likely they’ll fight back To loosen the seals skin which the orca doesn’t eat. Or simply for fun; It’s thought maybe the orcas just like to play with their food. Interestingly, tail flipping is a learned behaviour, only exhibited by a select group of pods. This injured sea lion doesn’t stand a chance. Orca’s target the young or frail - grabbing its prey quickly before they have a chance to get away. This is because an orca’s prey includes large carnivores with sharp teeth - like the great white shark, so going for the weakest link in a group reduces the chance of a nasty bite, and increases the chance of a tasty meal. With these stealthy techniques and hunting prowess, the orca certainly does earn its alternate name: the killer whale.

Shark Infested Golf Course
 
01:35
Carbrook Golf Club might just be the only shark-infested golf course in the world. There are between six and twelve bull sharks living in its lake, some over nine feet long. It’s thought the bull sharks found their new home after a nearby river flooded during the 1990’s, sweeping the deadly predators into the club’s lake. Over the next few years, people reported seeing fins in the water… and in the 2000’s the deadly predators were finally caught on camera. Since then they’ve gone from strength to strength and are sharks are now breeding. The resident sharks have never harmed the golfers at this club, and the man-eating residents of this lake don’t seem to be off-putting for keen golfers.

This incredible cemetery is seven times the size of Disneyland, and although it’s centuries old, the striking architecture is a fairly recent addition starting in the 1990s. Over the years, the competition between families to have the most ornate, eye-catching tombs has increased. It’s one of the most opulent places in the world to be laid to rest, and truly one of Vietnam’s most amazing hidden gems.

Skijoring - The Incredible Horse Skiing Sport

What do you get when you cross horse racing, with skiing? Skijoring, of course! Horse-drawn skiing, also called skijoring, is a popular tradition in this Polish mountain region. The challenge is to remain upright on your skies behind the horse. This equestrian winter sport might seem unusual, but actually skijor-ers can be found across North America and Europe. Some racetracks have tricky jumps, obstacles and turns, with participants reaching speeds of up to 50 miles per hour - no mean feat. The sport found fame in 1928, when it was demonstrated at the St. Moritz winter Olympics. There’s now an annual competition at the Swiss resort, that attracts thousands of onlookers. With a prize of over half a million dollars up for grabs, competitors aren’t just horsing around.

The Dance Of The Sage Grouse
 
01:21
Each spring, at dawn, the sagebrushes of Western North America play host to a bird that produces a rather unusual sound. The male greater sage-grouse are trying to attract a mate. He impresses the lady sage-grouse by filling bulbous yellow sacs with air, and thrusting his head, all whilst shaking his gorgeous tail feathers. Found in 11 states, it’s a rare sight that people travel miles to witness, observing quietly so they don’t disturb this decadent dance. But the greater sage-grouse is under threat. In recent years, its habitat has been fragmented. And the wild population has dropped by 90-95% to an estimated 500,000. It is thought that oil and gas development, conversion of sagebrush to agricultural land, and climate change are all factors in the species’ decline. And it’s feared that further loss of habitat and manmade disruption could spell doom for this North American icon.

The Mind Bending World of Contortionists
 
02:08
They have been bending their bodies, and our minds, for centuries. But what goes into being a successful contortionist? Contrary to popular belief, the first step isn’t investing in sparkly spandex. For many people it’s possessing a naturally bendy body. Renowned contortionist Jorge Ivan Latorre Robles has a medical condition that makes him super stretchy. “I discovered at 18 that I was like feeling a little bit stretchy. Then I discovered that my arms and my bones were dislocating in my body also...like this! Then I discovered it was a syndrome, Ehlers-Danlos syndrome. But not all contortionists have this condition, and typically mastering the art takes a lot of hard work. Yousef Al Bahtini is a 12 year old contortionist living in Gaza. He started training at a young age, encouraged by his family, he learnt using Youtube videos. Whilst Yousef is self-taught, there are entire schools dedicated to the art of contortion, with high concentrations of academies in places like Mongolia, where contortion dates back to the time of Ghengis Khan. If becoming a contortionist sounds like a stretch too far for you, maybe the best way to enjoy this art form is watching from the side lines Subscribe to Getty Images TV on YouTube: http://gtty.im/2r0Jgyx Like @gettyimages on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/gettyimages Follow @gettyimages on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/gettyimages Follow @gettyimages on Twitter: https://www.twitter.com/gettyimages Check out more videos: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCh4CvlC9Su53xwWDJ5P6WqA
