Little boy falls asleep on his skis

There's not much more that can be said about this little skier. The little boy was tuckered out, couldn't keep his eyes open and fell asleep while standing on his skis.

The "Awww" factor is about an eight on a scale of 10. Take a look:

Next time, get this kid a nap before taking him skiing, will ya?

Tiger shark tries to bite the leg of a scuba diver (video)

 "Let sleeping dogs lie" is always a good credo, especially when those dogs are man-eating tiger sharks swimming around at the bottom of the ocean minding their own business.

But sometimes scuba divers get a case of the "let's test the fates" in order to get close-up video and photographs of dangerous sharks swimming in circles in and around them. Not a good idea.

In this case, one tiger shark decided to swim through the open legs of a scuba diver and then thought about taking a bite out of his leg. The diver quickly pulled his leg away, like pulling a bone away from a hungry dog.

See the near shark bite at the :40 mark in this YouTube video:

This is definitely not recommended.

From GrindTV Outdoor
Shark Diver,  a commercial shark-diving operation that utilizes cages for protection, posted a story this week about the footage in the video. Part of it reads:

"Yes, that is a Tiger on predation, and yes those divers do not have a clue, and yes that was as close as it looked.... At 0.40 that diver was one second away from sending years of conservation work down the tubes."
Take note, scuba divers, and let tiger sharks lie.

Beached dolphins in Brazil saved by beachgoers

Every once in a while you'll hear about a dolphin getting stranded on a beach and someone saving it by pushing it into deeper water. Rarely do you hear of a pod of dolphins doing such a thing.

But that's what happened Monday on a Brazilian beach.

About 20 dolphins found themselves in desperate need of a helping hand, inexplicably swimming into shallow water before getting beached at Arraial do Cabo.

Beachgoers immediately started grabbing tails and pulling the creatures back into deeper water. This went on until every last dolphin was saved.

Great save, people! Watch them make the save here:
