A BBC team and a number of tourists luckily escaped with minor injuries when lava flow mixed with steam, coming out from Mount Etna, caused a huge explosion.

Though  the last major eruption was in 1992, mount Etna often comes to life in short, violent bursts called paroxysms, so we’ll all definitely be sure to wear a hardhat if we ever come as close to it, as this folks did.

Feeling like you could use a break on a sunny beach?

Well, this Galapagos beach isn’t the right place for you. This is the stuff nightmares are made off.

This incredible footage, is probably one of the best clips from the Planet Earth TV Series and captures this incredible chase scene, between an Iguana and what seems to be a never ending swarm of snakes, coming out from every crack on the rocks.

Also, it doesn’t hurt to have Hans Zimmer handling the music, helping to build up the tension perfectly.

Watch his comments about about the music of Planet Earth II, on the video above.

There is also a “behind the scenes” video, explaining how while in Isla Fernandina, the Planet Earth crew were filming hatchling marine iguanas when they were surprised to first capture this sort of behavior (snakes hunting in group, though not in collaboration).
