If you own a GoPro Hero 4, you could probably strap it on to anything and make a video worth watching. Lion conservationist Kevin Richardson is known around the world for his friendship with lions and hyenas, so it was only natural for him to go on a lethal hunt with his lion pals Meg and Amy.

GoPro cameras have captured amazing videos from around the world that have shown us what it’s like to leap off a building or to travel inside a live volcano.

Mexican soccer team mounts a GoPro on an eagle, gets incredible footage of it soaring over the stadium
Yes, it turns out that being able to fly is just as cool as you imagined. A Mexican soccer team recently strapped a GoPro camera to its resident trained eagle and captured some incredible footage of the bird soaring over El Estadio Azteca in Mexico City before landing somewhat awkwardly on the pitch. The video was filmed with a GoPro Hero3+, which weighs in at just 4.8 ounces with its complete housing and thus isn’t nearly heavy enough to seriously weigh the eagle down during its flight. Even so, we’re sure that PETA won’t be too happy with this video but we’re still glad they filmed it because it’s so incredibly cool. More →
