For many years, people (kids mainly) have been fascinated by the idea of dragons. Adults have mused over what the strange creature known as leviathan (described in detail in Job 41) could have been. Most footnotes in Bibles claim it was a crocodile since many of the descriptions in Job seem to indicate this. However, there are two very stark portions of that description which render that verdict wrong.
This adventure takes Ranger Mike to South Africa to look into this issue in detail. He comes face-to-face with certain realities. There’s also incredible danger being so close to crocodiles!
Our cockatoo, Coconut, appears in this video. We filmed the scenes before we had to give her away, so it’s the only video she will appear in. But, she did a brilliant job!
This video is completely unique in another way – it’s the only creation video with macro scenes of a bombardier beetle! This creature is about the size of a lightning bug, but it has the incredible ability of firing a canon at would-be attackers! But, it’s firing boiling water! It has always fascinated scientists as to how this could happen without harming the beetle. While they know now how it works, quality video of them doing so is almost impossible to obtain. Even if you found one, you would have to have macro video capability and somehow set up the scene with would-be “enemies” to get the beetle to fire. Additionally, you would need high speed equipment to be able to slow the action down in order to see how it works. Even then, it would take a skilled photographer a lot of time and patience! Professional footage is rare and virtually unavailable. That’s why it’s almost miraculous that we have it! And the footage of it is GREAT!
