A shift of power is taking place at the top of the world. The Arctic is undergoing a dramatic change, and with this change one iconic Arctic hunter may soon have to give way to another as solid ice turns to open sea.

The polar bear, once king of the North, needs ice to stalk its prey. Killer whales, or orca, on the other hand, are unable to hunt in an ocean locked in ice.

As the ice increasingly disappears, the tables have turned. Polar bears are struggling to survive while the now open ocean provides bountiful new hunting grounds for the whales.

They may appear cute and cuddly, but as one alligator soon learned, otters can be vicious predators

  • Ensuing ‘crunching noises’ proved that the otter had a decent meal

They may appear cute and cuddly, but as one alligator soon learned, otters can be vicious predators.

These photos show an otter overpowering a juvenile gator and despite the reptile doing its best, it was no match for the fanged weasel-cousin.

The animals were spotted at Lake Woodruff National Wildlife Refuge in Florida, where it soon became clear that the otter was in it to win it.

The otter attacked the relatively young gator by biting it over the neck, ensuring it could not turn around and bite back.

After a short struggle, the otter was able to drag the reptile onto a riverbank and out of sight.

It then proceeded to eat the animal alive, validated by the ‘crunching noises’ that could be heard from the bank.

Despite their adorable appearance, otters are the apex predator of many freshwater species.

In March of 1995, this highly unusual, Disney-produced
TV special was aired, presenting UFOs and alien
visitation to our planet as a matter of fact.

Those who tracked this incredible production state that
it was shown only once, and with no advance notice on
stations in only five US cities.

Thanks to a viewer who was able to roll the VCR and
capture it, we have a record of the startling statements
it contained.
