A dramatic set of pictures show a man nearly being swallowed by a Bryde's Whale off Port Elizabeth Harbour. Rainer Schimpf, 51, has worked as a dive tour operator in South Africa for over 15 years. But in February, he experienced something very rare – the inside of a whale's mouth. In perfect sea conditions, Rainer and his team set off to document a sardine run – a natural event where gannets, penguins, seals, dolphins, whales and sharks work together to gather the fish into bait balls. Rainer and his colleagues film the expedition for educational and environmental purposes.Split into two groups, Rainer led his team into the ocean, about 25 nautical miles from shore.But it was when the sea suddenly churned up that the team knew something strange was happening.

Animals have an inexplicable ability to seem to emote like humans would to certain triggers. Considering some of these drama queens, some reality celebrities would have their hands full with these derpy divas. We oftentimes look at how cute our small house cats can be, but what about our adorable big cats? They could probably give some of the funniest huskies around a run for their money for who is cuter.

If you aren't familiar with these cats, here's what you need to know: Larry is the Mouser in Chief at the Prime Minister's residence in the U.K. and Palmerston is the Foreign Office cat that lives next door. The two don't seem to like each other very much and British news outlets can't help but cover all of their cat-on-cat drama.

Larry and Palmerston had their worst fight yet the other night and the MiC had to make a visit to the vet. Hopefully they'll be able to settle their political differences soon, before they both get hurt.
