MegaBots recently completed construction on their Mark II giant fighting robot, which we’ve previously shown destroying a car with massive paintballs, but Suidobashi Heavy Industries beat them to the punch by finishing their own giant fighting robot called Kuratas.

Photographer Phoo Chan has captured some incredible images of a crow riding on the back of a bald eagle mid-flight. Chan explains that crows are territorial birds who will attack and harass much larger birds who invade their space. In this case, the attack included a slight pause as the crow perched itself on the eagle’s back for a brief mid-air ride.
More of Chan’s wonderful wildlife and bird photography can be seen on his Flickr page.
