Two kayakers paused to take a closer look at some whales off the coast of Argentina, but got an unexpected surprise when one of the giant creatures lifted their boat onto his back. This footage shows the whale roll over before moving slowly under the kayak and then lifting it clean out of the water close to the coastal city of Puerto Madryn. The two very surprised humans on its back are taken along for the ride, but manage to keep their cool. Credit: YouTube/Gisela Diaz
Shark bite: hammerhead bares its teeth for diver's camera
A SHARK reveals its fearsome teeth - trying to take a bite out of a camera on the ocean floor. This close encounter was captured by wildlife photographer Amos Nachoum, 63, from Israel, during one of his photo expeditions. The 14 ft shark swam around the area for four hours, giving Amos and his crew an up close view of this often feared ocean giant. Amos has been exploring and leading wildlife tours for over 40 years and wishes to change people's negative views about sharks. He owns Big Animals Expeditions and runs photo tours via his website http://www.biganimals.com.

Pilot builds his own replica WW1 plane in his garden
Brit Mike Clark has made a World War 1 fighter plane -- as well as building a RUNWAY in his back garden to fly it from. The 62-year-old commercial airline pilot, who lives near Horsham in West Sussex, is the proud owner of a Fokker Eindecker. The single-seater monoplane, designed by Dutch aviation pioneer Anthony Fokker, was the first purpose-built German fighter aircraft. It was also the first plane to be fitted with a synchronisation gear, allowing the pilot to fire a machine gun through the arc of the propeller without striking the blades. The replica Eindecker took Clark 18 months to build and made its maiden flight in June 2012. In a bid for historical authenticity, Clark borrowed both the colour scheme and registration number of German flying ace Ernst Udet, the top-scoring surviving WWI flying ace.
