Video: Snowy Midnight Standoff Between an Owl and a Fox

Watch what happens when feathers and fur meet up in the middle of the night. 

A snowy owl and red fox seem an unlikely pair to hang out during the darkness of a cold winter night. But that's exactly what they did during the early morning hours of Jan. 4, and lucky for us, a surveillance camera captured everything.

The unusual interaction took place at the snow-covered marina in Cobourg, Ontario. Turns out, a staff member of the marina was intrigued by the myriad of tracks they found that morning and decided to review the footage to see what exactly took place.

It's amazing to think of the countless animal interactions we never get to see.

Nature certainly never ceases to amaze.
