Armed with a GoPro, This Turtle Shows Us Around Its Murky Underwater Home

Nothing is more fun than strapping a GoPro to something in the wild and getting a new perspective on nature. Check this turtle out! 

I think the GoPro is an underrated tool. Honestly, there's nothing more fun than seeing all the new angles and views of the world captured on these functional epic tiny cameras. This viral video follows a red-eared slider turtle with a GoPro on its back and gives us the best turtle footage since The Secret of the Ooze

The film starts out with the eloquent, "'Sup, guys, we got a turtle right here..." and gets better every second from there. 

Check out the video from The Fish Whisperer

Other than offering a rip-roaring good time (mostly for turtles), watching this video reminds us, as filmmakers, that getting unique shots sometimes is a ridiculous endeavor. Whether you're mounting a GoPro to an arrow or to a sword, there are myriad ways to utilize small, lightweight action cameras to get shots you otherwise wouldn't be able to.

So, I don't know...go strap your DSLR to a big ol' helium balloon and see how well Little League prepared you for this exact moment.

What's next? Watch a GoPro strapped to an Eagle

The holiday season has come to an end, and most of us have gone back to work and are already on the verge of succumbing to the mundane drudgery of everyday life. Ok, maybe things aren't that bad, but just in case you need a little pick-me-up to start the new year off right, here's a video of a white-tailed eagle named Victor soaring over Paris -- after being launched from the top of the Eiffel Tower -- with a Sony action camera strapped to his back.

This is fun to watch, I am glad he was able to get the strap off the turtle when he was done.
