That was so cool! Thanks for making this video, I loved it!

As for the animals falling, it scared me a lot!!!!! At first I thought a monkey fell out of the tree, but when I saw that you weren't startled I figured it out. It helped a little when the other animals fell!

Thanks again!

I seriously jumped a foot when those animals started falling! UNEXPECTED :D! Really good video but a bit sickening with those dead animals (especially the deer and the thing the vulture was eating). I'm glad I ate my breakfast before I watched.......but now my appetite is completely depleted...

I think that mushrooms are really cool. Can you make a video all about mushrooms? I would like to learn more about them.

I was watching with the volume up high, and just as I looked away, animals started crashing into the frame around you. I nearly fell out of my chair! LOL
