Can you guess where this Jeep Cherokee was spotted with a large, apparently real, shark corpse strapped to its front bumper? You get one hint: it’s not Florida.
Late last night, we received a tip from a very friendly reader named Sara Altschule, informing us that she had been on the local news after a bird—possibly a seagull—flew into her car windshield as she was driving on a highway south of Seattle. It’s a terrifying situation, but Sara’s just thrilled to be alive and have…

Rural Australian drivers don’t really have to worry about psychotic motorcyclists as much as Mad Max you lead you to believe. But they do have a scourge far more deadly; evil beasts called kangaroos. Volvo’s tech to deal with them could be a huge leap in collision-avoidance.
Most people who see a motorcyclist riding a sportbike while kitted in garish ICON gear will assume the guy riding is about to get his stunt on. This lady proves that we aren’t all as we appear.
The butterfly effect is a funny thing. You never know where one discovery will lead. Take the automobile: It changed the world, transforming cities and small towns. And it also led to raccoons leaving America—and, possibly, taking over Europe.
Safaris can be cool, safaris can be fun, safaris can pump millions into local economies. But if you get just a little too close to an elephant with your Jeep, it will make sure you understand in no uncertain terms to WOAH BUDDY BACK THE HELL AWAY FROM MY FAMILY.
There was a caution at Turn 1 of Bristol at today’s NASCAR Truck practice. The culprit? A rabbit on the loose.
Look at this dog. He is so happy. What a happy dog. He just discovered the joys of turning on the A/C, and he is the happiest dog in the world. All dogs should be this happy. Happy happy happy.
Somewhere in Slovakia a storm drain was... chirping. Authorities showed up to investigate, found a female mallard pacing around it, put two-and-two together, and commenced operation Pull Some Dumb Ducks Out Of The Drain. Don’t worry, it works out and this video will cheer you up.
I guess the Bradley Fighting Vehicle didn’t exactly intimidate the things.
Going to your local drag strip, road course, or rally stage is a great way to see the coolest cars on the planet. But more than that, it’s a great way to see some really cute dogs.
I’m not really going to go beyond that, for now. Just watch. Let the crappy techno lull you into a false sense of security, until the point where you forget that this video comes from (of course) Russia. And then... just watch.
Rats, proving their position as Nature’s Assholes, gnawed off the front legs of a 90-year-old tortoise that was hibernating. What kind of jerk gnaws off your legs when you’re freaking hibernating? To help the tortoise, a pair of wheels were fitted. That’s pretty good. But what more can we do?
It turns out that cats like refreshed and refurbished old Porsche 911s as much as humans do.
The next time you're driving, you might want to be on the lookout for bees. If you see one or two, no big deal. But if you see two million of them cruising down the highway, hanging out on the back of a flat-bed truck, congratulations — you've witnessed someone doing the unique job of bee transporter.
Watching a small animal elude grown men is always hilarious. Seeing people run around on an active highway feels... ominous. I can't decide whether to giggle or cringe watching this.
We here at Jalopnik love our friends in the animal kingdom, but it seems like they don't always mix well with cars.
This buffalo in Yellowstone heard what we did to his people, and he is very, very upset about it. To the point where he will attack your car.
Sun City, Arizona is currently on lockdown as two llamas run loose across the wilderness of Southwestern Suburbia.
