If you’re looking for an awesome thrill, head over to Darwin City in northern Australia where Crocosaurus Cove will introduce you to the self-contained experience of a lifetime, the Cage of Death, “Australia’s only crocodile dive experience.” 

The ultimate face to face encounter commences as you are lowered into one of three crocodile enclosures, gradually becoming submerged in the very same waters as some of Australia’s largest crocodiles. Each cage dive will spend approximately 5 minutes in each of the 3 enclosures!

Operated by an over-head monorail and designed for 1 or 2 people per cage, the Cage of Death has you suspended above the crocs before being lowered into the pens to get an up close and personal look at these amazing reptiles.

Sometimes daily life gets a bit dull and it takes a new experience, like a face-to-face encounter with an enormous crocodile, to really shake things up. That should help refresh you and put things back into perspective, right? That is, assuming you don’t suffer from herpetophobia.

There’s nothing like the awe of a child encountering a new life form, but in this fantastic shot by Christopher of CMGW Photography, entitled “First Contact”, it looks like the feeling radiating from this enormous old manatee might be mutual. 
What an awesome shot. We can’t stop smiling.

If you’ve been to the zoo you’ve seen parents lifting up their kids to get a better look at the animals. But have you ever heard of animals lifting their offspring to get a better look at people? That’s exactly what happens in this awesome video posted by One World One Ocean, a mother gray whale repeatedly lifts her calf to see humans on a boat. The entire story is up on the One World One Ocean website.

Greg and Barbara MacGillivray traveled to Laguna San Ignacio, on Mexico’s Baja Peninsula, where they were treated to an experience that was, quite simply, profound. San Ignacio is a whale watcher’s dream, where visitors have a good chance of having an up-close encounter with a friendly whale.
