A sea eagle in Australia snatched a video camera that was filming crocodiles and recorded a stunning 70-mile flight.

Wildlife rangers in Western Australia's Kimberly region had set up the motion-sensor camera along the Margaret River in May.

The camera, which is 4 to 6 inches long, disappeared soon after and rangers figured it had fallen in the water, The Associated Press reported.

But rangers recently found the device 70 miles away along the Mary River.

The video shows the bird's flapping wings as it grabs the camera and takes off. It even poses for a "selfie" later, Australia's ABC News reported.
