Of course everyone knows there are tons of animal videos on Youtube. Seems like whenever we have a strange pet story in our paper, it quickly becomes one of the most read stories on NewsOK. People love their animals, they love to read about animals, and apparently they love watching animal videos.
Case in point, this five-second clip of the Dramatic Chipmunk.
Admittedly, it’s a curious and kind of funny clip, but it has been viewed almost 10 million times on Youtube. It’s even spawned several parodies, including this Bond-themed one, a Star Wars parody and a Kill Bill version.
Some of the most-viewed videos on Youtube have animal themes. The Battle at Kruger is one of the most riveting videos you’ll see online (warning: graphic animal-on-animal violence), depicting a battle between a pride of lions, a herd of water buffalo and two crocodiles in South Africa’s Kruger National Park. It’s been viewed more than 35 million times.
Keep your eyes open for more videos from the Pet Show, though don’t expect us to pit our pets against each other in a battle to the death.
