Amazing how strong the claws are. I knew they were hunting young mountain goats but this was a good size goat.

Found more footage (7 minutes) where the eagle brings it back and how the goats are not only
on the lookout but chase them too. How large are those eagles and where was this footage shot?

I think it was filmed in Israel. Thanks bailey for finding the longer version. Imagine how thrilled the photographer was to catch such action. I never knew eagles would go after something so big- I thought they ate snakes, mice, rabbits, things like that. It's a cruel world out there.

This is fascinating--not just what the spider can do but the ability to capture it on video

Once again nk, another great post. This cd member appreciates all of your contributions to the
nature forum.
The spider video was fascinating. Too bad that they are so misunderstood. If they were
to disappear:

Wow - I didn't know that about spiders.

Here's a great video about a dolphin which appears to actually ask for help and certainly stays still so the line can be cut.

Happy ending but damn those hooks and lines.
