If gulls just stole some of your chips while you were out trying to enjoy your lunch, you should feel lucky, because one species has recently developed a taste for live mammal meat!

Looking for SciShow elsewhere on the internet?
I wonder if this phenomenon has anything to do with the massive increase of plastics found in bird stomachs - if they adjust their diet to incorporate more (fresh) meat, they’re much more likely to avoid plastics and thus live longer
Gah, gulls are assholes. The last time I went trekking on Granite Island I made the mistake of trying to eat the expensive pack of chips from the island snack shop while I walked. Needless to say a big flock of gulls followed me and their presence was very menacing.
A fellow trekker said I would have to share my food with them, to which I replied "the hell I will, those damn free loaders aren't getting a single one of these overpriced chips.
Despite me covering them tightly with my arms as I walked the gulls were constantly probing for weak spots to get the free food they desired. Fortunately I was able to make good on my word but it was an experience that got my adrenaline pumping and if any one of those gulls had pushed their luck too far I would have not hesitated to strike grab its neck and make an example of it. Fortunately gulls are smart enough to know not to put their lives at risk like that. But they are as diabolical as they are adaptable. Gulls in London have been observed killing and eating pigeons near the parklands' wet areas
They act that way because they eat human food and because of the hormones , preservatives and additives it affects them just like it does the rats, pigeons and coyote/wolves.
There addicted to processed food.
When the gulls try to lern what human eyballs tastes like I will teach them what humans do with eybiters. Humans have these hands that are really good at grabbing stuff with, and once you grab the gull, swinging it an the nearest hard surface will do the trick nicley.
I think the gulls know that I will do that, because they won't try to steal my food while they harass some people to no end.
As Mr. J Livingston Seagull's Attorney and Representative I would like to refute all claims made in this video. They are both extremely inflammatory and damaging to Mr. Seagull's ability to make a living and provide for his family. The SciShow has knowingly hurt Mr. Seagull's book sales without providing Mr. Seagull an appropriate venue to respond to theses allegations. As such we will be seeking restitution of lost income in the form McDonald's french fries aged in a random parking lot close to a public beach.
Also we will not be held responsible for any damages suffered from random guano attacks on vehicles owed by SciShow, it's workers, or anyone supporting the SciShow YouTube channel.
Bad lip reading had foreseen this seagull situation.
""SEAGULLS! (Stop It Now)"
Everyone told me
Not to stroll on that beach
Said seagulls gonna come
Poke me in the coconut
And they did
And they did
Had me goin' like
Nothing I could do but yell
When these birds attacked me
When I tried to run I fell...
Gulls in Australia are the most aggressive in the world, inland flocks around lake Hume on the NSW/Vic border have evolved to eat flesh over the past 30 years. They pick the eyes out of new born lambs and calves and attack other birds. Some flocks have even attacked Koalas and small Kangaroos. Makes camping quite dangerous.
Seals are like the perpetual victim of the animal kingdom. When they aren't getting their eyes and genitals plucked out by seagulls, they're getting raped and killed by sea otters, clubbed by humans, or turned into a pre-meal volleyball by an orca.
Ever see video of gull stealing guys phone or camera, and recovered footage, camera taking to sky? Add more killer albatross gulls, =remove problem. They are attacking whales, ever see how big seals are? One went around murdering flying rats in city, pigeons, calculate, amount of murderous birds, shh, don’t tell anyone about my secret project, largest bird in existence, DNA, what type of bird? -evil scientist!
An organism starts killing another organism, so a completely separate organism comes up with a solution of systematical killing the organism that was killing the other organism.
It's for a reason, I promise.
Back in 1995, in Seattle's Occidental Park, I watched a seagull swoop down on a pigeon, snatch it by the neck, thrash it around until the pigeon was dead, then rip its belly open to feast.
And people like to feed them french fries around here. No thanks, I like my fingers.
How to become bitcoin trader? Exactly like Bitcoin, multiple digital currencies exist in the marketplace. So if you prefer to buy a few other currencies which aren`t available on Indian Exchange than you can utilize Bittrex. All you have to do is locate an exchange that you favor. Cryptocurrency exchanges have a massive potential to modify peoples minds and opinions concerning cryptocurrencies generally speaking and their application in actual life. So even in the event the exchange is attacked, its still true that you have your money. Furthermore, the exchanges prepare each and every industry for Bitcoin expansion. Existing stock exchanges will also compete to be able to fulfill the users configuration requirements. Sooner or later later on, the prices will grow more equal, meeting somewhere in the middleyour profit is equivalent to the quantity of convergence. No matter how far it is from Kijun, it is likely to return and test that level at some point. The amount of bitcoin is perpetually changing. In the US, it is 1000 USD. Whats even better, seek the services of a seasoned lawyer or at least ask for an in depth consultation. So youve read the newspaper about the meteoric growth of crypto currencies including Bitcoin or Ripple. Then coming up with 1000s of exchange rates simply to go out and get groceries is nearly impossible. Many cities around the world provide a bitcoin ATM where you are able to trade cash for bitcoin. The cryptocurrency world isn`t efficient.
