A BRAZEN bird has snatched a video camera that was recording crocodiles in WA and captured fascinating footage of its 110km journey across the Kimberley.
Wildlife rangers released video that reveals the sea eagle's caper. The bird's flapping wings can be seen as it grabs the device and takes off, and the eagle later poses for a selfie, poking its face into the camera lens.
Rangers set up the motion-sensor camera along the Margaret River in May, hoping to record images of crocodiles. The camera, which is about 10cm to 15cm long and 5cm wide, disappeared soon after and the rangers figured it had fallen into the water.
The rangers recently found out that the device had been found near the Mary River, about 110 km away, ranger Roneil Skeen told the ABC. When they examined the video inside, the real culprit was revealed.
Did that bird just fly 110 km in under 1 minute? lol
Interesting video. Scientists should now put cameras in decoys to follow some animals.
With a sure way to retrieve them of course.
