3D Illusion Animal Lamps

3D Illusion Animal Lamps

Artist Cyril Bagnost presents a cool take on 3D acrylic illusion lamps, with whimsical low-poly designs cut precisely to the outline of the animal. The bulldog and panther are pretty sweet, but we also dig his Jeff Koons-inspired balloon dog. Lamps are powered via USB.

The Raptor Tier List

The Raptor Tier List

TierZoo kicks off its multi-part bird ranking with raptors, or birds of prey. Like many other predators, raptors rely on speed, power, or a combination of both. But the ones who made it on this list also have rare or unique abilities. Such as arson.

Flocking Patterns

Flocking Patterns

The term “sheep” is often used to refer to those who blindly follow others. As this aerial footage of sheep and cows moving in unison in New Zealand shows, flock mentality is truly the order of business in the farm animal kingdom.

Kookaburra Supervillain

Kookaburra Supervillain

The laughing kookaburra bird lives up to its name with one of the most charming calls around. But Connor Margetts figured out that if he slows down the sound of his bird, Dacelo, that lighthearted call takes on a decidedly more evil tone.

The Crystal Fox Puppet

The Crystal Fox Puppet

Whether or not you loved The Last Jedi, you’ve got to hand it to the effects departments for their work on the film. While we assumed the Vulptex (aka “crystal foxes”) were CGI, it turns out they built an amazing animatronic puppet for close-ups, then scanned it for digital use.

The Australian Wilderness

The Australian Wilderness

DINOSAUR introduces us to a few of the unique and wonderful creatures that can be found lurking in the bush of Australia. Though it seems these animals seem are more interested in getting a good wi-fi connection than you might expect.

Arf.mp4

Arf.mp4

You. Your computer screen. Your headphones. This dog. That’s all you need today to bring a big grin to your face, and know that everything’s going to be alright. This is so going to be our “new message” sound now.

The Primate Tier List

The Primate Tier List

TierZoo finally gets around to the kings of the current meta. Primates prove that to reign supreme, you shouldn’t max one skill. Instead, you should have lots of great skills and traits. You know who’s at the top of the game. At least until the next expansion.

Beaglesaurus Rex

Beaglesaurus Rex

YouTuber foggymyst envisions what dinosaurs might have sounded like by slowing down and lowering the vocalizations of his beagle dog by a few octaves. The pup just needs this costume to complete the effect.

Facts About Koalas

Facts About Koalas

Did you know that koalas have been around 100 times longer than humans? Mental Floss fills our brains with trivia about those adorable eucalyptus-loving marsupials. They may not be as pleasant to hang out with as you might think, but we want a giant koala anyhow.

Cat vs. Dog: Best Support Class

Cat vs. Dog: Best Support Class

TierZoo flings its two cents in the never ending debate between dog owners and cat lovers. So which is the best support class? The answer is… not for hypochondriacs. Seriously though, the fear parasite thing isn’t a stone cold fact.

The Shark Tier List

The Shark Tier List

“There are generally no shark builds that can justify bottom tier.” TierZoo applies his eSports analysis on sharks, which have a couple of the most infamous builds in the real life meta. They’re proof that Blizzard is part of nature – they both take way too long to nerf OP stuff.

Every Cat at 3AM

Every Cat at 3AM

If you currently have or have ever had a cat, you’ll be able to relate to Gus Johnson’s video, in which he demonstrates one of the many ways in which our furry friends can be a-holes. He missed the part where kitty sits on your head and starts making biscuits on your eyelids.

The Cat Tier List

The Cat Tier List

(Gore) “Very few cheetahs can reach the late game, where they can use their high mobility stat.” TierZoo uses video game terminology and esports analysis to rank some of the most well-known cat species. Yes, cheetahs are garbage tier.

Dog Catches Water in Slow-Mo

Dog Catches Water in Slow-Mo

Sometimes, it’s the simplest ideas which are the most entertaining. Take for example, this short clip from slow motion channel Warped Perception, in which he spits a stream of water at his german shepherd April’s mouth, and she tries to catch it.

Maru the cat continues to demonstrate his lifelong love for confined places, and successfully manages to cram himself into yet another too-small container. If you think that was impressive, watch this.

Crocodile Attack!

A yellow-billed stork was enjoying a calm and peaceful day dipping its beak into the water in South Africa’s Kruger National Park when a vicious croc came out of nowhere and tried to attack. Fortunately, the bird kept its wits, and all is right with the world.

The True Meaning of Pancake Cat

The True Meaning of Pancake Cat

A photo of a smirking cat sitting next to a stack of pancakes (aka “blin” in Russia) has been making the rounds for a while now, and YouTuber Dexturt couldn’t resist digging deeper into the cat’s state of mind with this amusing and heartfelt analysis.

Hummingbird Pool Party

Hummingbird Pool Party

For most of us, it’s rare to see even a single hummingbird. But check out this fun footage of a whole mess of the speedy little birds splashing about in a fountain. The sound of these little guys buzzing about never gets old.

When the Catnip Kicks In

When the Catnip Kicks In

It’s been a while since we posted a cat video here on The Awesomer, so this 10-minute supercut should more than make up for their absence, as we meet dozens of kitties to see what they’re up to after a dip into the old wacky weed. Most of them are just naturally high.

White Moose

White Moose

After searching for almost three years, Hans Nilsson managed to capture video of an incredibly rare and awesome sight – an eight-year old moose that is pure white from his head to his toes, including his fuzzy antlers. If you ever visit Eda, Sweden, you might see him too.

Kurzgesagt: Life & Size Pt. 1

Kurzgesagt: Life & Size Pt. 1

Kurzgesagt kicks off a multi-part lesson that explains how an organism’s size drastically affects its evolution. For instance, droplets of water could be lethal to insects. So some of them evolved to repel even tiny particles of water.

Orchestra Dog

Orchestra Dog

During an outdoor concert being put on by the Vienna Chamber Festival in Izmir, Turkey, a stray dog decided to wander onto the stage and apparently liked what he heard. The pup settled right in as both a member of the audience and the orchestra. Who’s a good boy?

Animal Air Conditioning

Animal Air Conditioning

It’s Okay to Be Smart describes how prairie dogs as well as certain species of termites and ants build burrows and colonies with natural cooling and air circulation systems. They are all like tiny Willis Carriers.

If Animals Were Round

If Animals Were Round

The animators from Rollin’ Wild envision what the world would be like if all animals were round and puffy, as if they were balloon floats in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade. While they’re definitely silly looking, we’re glad there’s such a thing as natural selection.

Coyote Peterson vs. Hot Wings

Coyote Peterson vs. Hot Wings

Brave Wilderness host and pain junkie Coyote Peterson sat down with Hot Ones to talk about his nickname, wearing a bee beard, fan requests, and more while experiencing new kinds of discomfort. Is no one going to talk about how he said “Reese’s Pieces”?
