Nature has many weird creatures to offer and often these animals fascinate us the most.

There are ants in Australia’s outback that use specialized workers as living honey pots.

In Africa in the endless Bangweulu wetlands of Zambia the shoebill is on the hunt for fish, a bird that definitely lives up to its name. Finally in the Brazilian rainforests lurk gruesome river monsters in the Amazon abyss that send shivers down the spine of even the most experienced divers.

But there are also intense human-animal-relationships like the close bond between a German diver and a dolphin female who explore the Atlantic off the coast of Ireland, or the “easy rider” in California who has taken care of an African elephant bull for more than 25 years.

This video is a breath-taking journey to visit animals around the globe who are somehow different.
