You've heard people say, "Don't try this at home." But seriously, this time, you really, really don't want to try this at home (or at the office, or the park, or on your sofa ...). The group of skywalking Russians have nothing on this "real-life Spider-Man." The amateur Ukrainian stuntman, who goes by the name Mustang Wanted, makes a habit out of putting himself in life-threatening situations in order to capture incredible death-defying photos.

angry giraffe

An angry bull giraffe kicks out at a jeep during an attack in the Eastern Cape of South Africa. WELCOME to Giraffe-ic Park. This is the moment a jeep full of terrified safari tourists was attacked by a huge bull giraffe. The two-and-a-half tonne giant chased and kicked the vehicle for two miles - just like the T-rex in hit movie Jurassic Park. The 13-ft male is believed to have had an hormonal imbalance which triggered the raging attack. The dramatic footage was captured by cameraman Rainer Schimpf during a trip to South Africa.

hotel

Emerging from the sands like a Phoenix from the ashes, the skeleton of a magnificent seaside hotel abandoned in the Second World War after falling victim to coastal erosion has begun to make a dramatic reappearance. The Manor House Hotel, like a ghost from the wartime past, is now visible again on the beach at Caister, near Great Yarmouth, Norfolk, after a staggering 65 years. The imposing Georgian building crumbled into the mists of history after decades of the east coast being battered by raging seas and violent gales. But after a night of raw north-easterly winds last week, and as a result, military pillboxes, the metalwork of Dutch groynes and even bedrock was exposed along Norfolk’s North Sea coast.
