AUSTRALIA — Australian wildlife officials set up a camera to take photos of crocodiles but a thieving eagle had other plans.

The bird flew 68 miles before setting the camera down and taking some upside down selfies.

    Funny…but how did he fly 68 miles in less than a minute?? Look at the camera’s internal clock….there is only a time lapse of just over a minute. If it had been edited to cut down the play time…the camera clock would reflect that!!

      A time lapse of a minute would make sense as long as you let go of the assumption that they cut out parts in the middle of the video. They likely removed the beginning of the video. Would you really want to watch a dizzying video of rocks, wings, and sky for the entire amount of time that it took the bird to fly 68 miles? Or just watch the end with the most interesting parts?

    Its likely that they only showed a minutes worth of the eagles trip. Not the whole 68 miles. That explains it.
