If you ask me, animals who steal cameras are always fun to watch. We’ve seen some hilarious encounters of mammals and birds with GoPros, and the funny video we’re about to share with you today took place in the sea. It shows a curious little octopus persistently trying to steal a diver’s GoPro. And it looks like the animal liked it a lot!

Animals stealing cameras is quite entertaining. They don’t really do it on purpose. They often just mistake it for something else. Food, usually, or… a mate. Sometimes they are just curious. This particular footage, though, shows an animal one doesn’t often interact with. Bald eagles.
On this particular occasion, glacial researcher Matt Beedle was in Juneau, Alaska. Photographing the eagles from afar, he attempted to coax them in to land with some scraps of left over salmon. To get a closer view of the situation, he left his GoPro Hero4 Silver nearby. Just as one eagle landed on a piece of salmon, another grabbed the GoPro and flew off to land in a tree.
Documenting nature isn’t always as cute and fluffy as we’d like it to be, and when it comes to the law of the jungle, the judge occasionally dons his black cap.
I would imagine that this video isn’t quite what Tan Nguyen expected to capture when he setup his GoPro pointed at this American Robin nest in his front yard, hoping to capture eggs hatching and chicks getting their first taste of life.
Among the thousands of boring GoPro videos uploaded to the internet each day, there are a select few that still offer what made these cameras so exciting in the first place – point-of-view angles and the ability to film where no camera could go before (at least not as easily, cheaply or safely).
One of these videos, uploaded by Michael Delaney and currently making its rounds online, is that of a GoPro that gets right up close to a pile of rattlesnakes – and then falls right into the pile after a snake strikes at it.
Looking to learn more about the mysterious lives of Australia’s saltwater crocodiles, National Geographic’s Young Explorer Trevor Frost set out to capture unique footage of the world’s biggest crocodiles.
His tools: toy remote-controlled boats, foam blocks, duct tape and a handful of GoPro cameras.
His goal: get the “salties” to take a shot at the unusual prey.
The results: National Geographic worthy point-of-view footage of how the crocs bite their prey.
We’re all getting a little anxious to get our hands on a the new GoPro 4, so, while you’re waiting, here is another installment of adorable animal footage captured with a GoPro to serve as a little inspiration. This time the team over at AS Goprod helps us get acqauntaied with a curious owl and her nest of fledglings that are impossibly adorable. The clever photographer must have noticed the owls nest and secured a GoPro onto the branch directly in front of the nest. (Note to self: put GoPro in front of owls nest.)
The footage the photographer was able capture of the highly inquisitive birds is perfect beyond words, take a look:
Small animals are aware of humans and behave differently (or disappear entirely) when humans are present. This is why nature photographers often leave their camera with a remote (or simply rolling) to capture the natural behavior of those animals. And this is exactly what youtuber delicious fishes did when leaving some sunflower seeds and peanuts along with a rolling GoPro camera (all set up on a cute little stone table).
After being done with the food, the little squirrel seems to be feeling alone in the world and turns to the gopro to fulfill his emotional (and sexual) needs. Looks like the photographer did not appreciate the act: “Caught this perverted little buggar loving up my GoPro. Filthy little beast!

If you were lucky enough to grow up with a smaller brother (or unlucky to grow up with an older brother), you know what Bro-Wrestling is. And it is usually pretty harmless.
But what about if you are good friends with a lion? Imagine Bro-Wrestling with one of these majestic animals.
This GoPro commercial accompanies Kevin Richardson, A.K.A The Lion Whisperer in a few days travel across South Africa. Kevin strapped a GoPro Hero 3+ to his chest and captured amazingly close footage with them.[Read More…]
A few weeks back a viral video was circulating the web showing a horned New Zealander ram dueling with a motorcyclist Marty Todd. The flick went viral and was shown on CNN, CBS and many more new outlets.
However, all the coverage was pretty one sided only showing the action from the motorcyclist point of view.
In an act which I am not sure if to call heroic or plain stupid, Todd returned to the same spot, found the same ram and mounted a GoPro camera on the animal’s back using a Velcro strap. The footage captured show the action from the ram’s point of view. [Read More…]
