Also.. those camera-stealing critters might want to have a good intellectual property rights lawyer on retainer to protect their work. Previously..

Didn’t realize until seeing that video just now - crabs are essentially giant spiders.

Previously: ... I Am Your Camera

Ha, I forgot about that post, but you definitely win best title.

The videos from the squirrels' point of view make me desperately want a video game where you're playing a heroic squirrel going off and doing squirrel quests, using the forest canopy as your highway and leaping onto enemies from above. Like a Mirror's Edge crossed with Dishonored.

Based on the baiting techniques used to manipulate the animals in these videos, the charges should be for entrapment rather than stealing.

Delightful post, thank you.

I’d be more impressed if it were the same camera, passed from squirrel to seagull to chimp to ocelot.

As we speak animals are filming you mating. So, you know, just act natural.

That bald eagle video ends at 52 seconds, as many movie portrayals of bald eagles do, with the call of a red tailed hawk.

I couldn’t help but notice that there was the call of a red-tailed hawk appended to the end of the eagle video; something which is apparently commonly done and which I almost certainly learned about via the late user rtha.

Yeah, color me cynical but after the first "seagull stole my gopro" video a few years ago I did wonder how much peanut butter was being smeared. It is all very Balloon-Boy.

Bunch of Bald Eagles watching a Bald Eagle Sitcom. Credits roll, and it ends with the screech of a red-tailed hawk. "Stupid Wilhelm Scream." they mutter, and see what else is on.

Be careful if a monkey steals your iphone though, especially if it's not waterproof.

Er, are many monkeys waterproof?
