Eagle steals camera, records flight, takes selfie

Posted: Updated:

A sea eagle snatched a camera near a river in the Australian Outback and took it on a 68-mile ride.

Park and wildlife rangers had placed the camera to capture pictures of freshwater crocodiles.  The eagle snatched it up and flew almost 70 miles before setting down the camera.

The eagle then appears to pose for a selfie as it pecks at the camera lens.

The camera theft happened back in May, but workers only recently found the camera, which recorded the entire incident.
