See What Animals See

Here is a website for seeing what animals see. The Museum of Animal Perspectives highlights videos taken from the backs of animals.

The site is curated by “video naturalist” Sam Easterson, who collects “animal-borne imaging,” point-of-view videos from alligators, bisons, armadillos, tarantulas, scorpions, and frogs. Then he adds or embeds it into Google Maps for geographical reference. For example, watching a snapping turtle normally involves staring at a lethargic hulk in the sun. But with a view from the snapper’s back, you see it cruise along the bottom of a lake, fend off a curious bass and paddle furiously for the surface and a breath of air. Below are a few videos from Mr. Easterson's "critter cam":
