No, this isn’t a still from a new Planet of the Apes movie, it’s a shot of an incredibly buff chimpanzee that suffers from alopecia - a condition that makes them lose their hair. Even though these animals are incredibly close to humans, sharing between 95 to 98 percent of the same DNA, when it comes to their fitness and muscles there’s no parallel between the two species. But why is this chimpanzee so buff? Researchers have noted that their muscles perform differently because their muscle fibers are closer to the bone than in humans and that makes them more dense than what can be found in humans.

This collection of 60 nature photos is not for the faint of heart, but for those willing to confront the raw power of the natural world, it is a thought-provoking and unforgettable experience. Viewer discretion is advised. Dare to look closer and see nature in a way you've never seen before.

Imagine taking in the beauty of nature, and then all of a sudden you are face to face with this.  If sharks are the apex predator of the sea then grizzly bears are the apex predator of the land. Once a year at least one person dies from a grizzly attack, which is nuts when you think about how little contact we have with them on a day to day basis. These animals can weigh up to 1,500 pounds and they’re faster and more graceful than their weight would make you think.
