PORTLAND, Ore. - It's one of the biggest trends among both amateur and professional photographers - wearable 'action' cameras that can show unique perspectives of the world around us.

It all started back in 2004 when a little company called GoPro sold their first action camera - a 35 mm version. The company's founder, Nick Woodman, was inspired by a surfing trip he had taken in Australia a few years before.

The GoPro was an instant hit and today it's known the world over. And other brands are getting in on the action camera craze as well.

We thought it would be fun to search YouTube for some of the best action videos featuring animals and wildlife. And we certainly found some fascinating, scary, funny and cute stuff. Take a look!
