Croc Caves of Ankarana

We traveled over 2 KM, in absolute dark, through an underground river full of bats, eels and blind fish to find one of the rarest Crocs in the world.

Monarch Butterfly

Weighing no more than a paperclip, this unbelievable insect makes a 4500 km journey that absolutely boggles the mind.

Red Roughed Lemur

They are one of the rarest lemurs in the world. And to see one, you have to go to a small Island off the coast of Madagascar. Then maybe... just maybe - you'll see one!

Adélie

The cutest penguin of them all! Imagine standing amongst a hundred thousand birds in one of the most remote places on the planet. This is bucket list stuff.

The Hippo Whisperer

Jane Goodall and her son, Grub, are trying to save a hippo sanctuary in Southern Tanzania. We went to tell their incredible story and meet the man they call “The Hippo Whisperer!”

A Sociable weaver's giant nest in Namibia, probably the most spectacular structure built by any bird. This species constructs large community nests that resemble huts, complete with a sloping thatched-grass roof that sheds rain. These nests are the world’s largest and most populated tree houses, with some weighing up to a ton and measuring up to 20 feet wide and 10 feet tall. They are large enough to house over a hundred pairs of birds, consisting of several generations at a time, and some nests have remained occupied for over a century!

SLEEPING ALONE!
In the wild, beluga whales will rest in groups, side by side, to protect one another. However, this whale is alone and has found a restful place amongst some white boats. His name is HVALDIMIR. He is a young male who was found in Norway wearing a harness. He has made many headlines as the "Russian Spy Whale." This is an example that we need to leave nature alone and respect its place.

Amazing that HVALDIMIR even chose white boats to rest between, obviously smarter than the humans who put the harness on him. 🤍

What a cute guy!! 👋 He feels maybe somewhat like they are his own herd Moms when he was a small baby calf when they started to scare them away and he became a loner because he refused to be held and fought back !! Good baby!

His story is actually very sad :(

He is beautiful but it’s sad that he’s alone 😢

How sad I'd remove it so he dont get caught on anything

Have a nice 💤 adorable boy!

Domagoj Bilandžija 🥺

Awww…sweet and sad at the same time. ❤️

Well said!

Just in case you have never seen a maggot up close and personal. Here is a Bluebottle maggot under an electron microscope. You're welcome! ... See MoreSee Less

He is the Walrus .. goo-goo-gajoob ...

Eeeew! You know, normally these kinds of things are actually kinda cute up close. If I were going to draw a maggot’s face-this Is probably what I would have come up with. It looks EXACTLY like a maggot should.

That's a face only its mother could love!

Looks like a bug eyed walrus! 🤣

Why does this thing remind me of Doofy🤷

Looks like my ex.

That’s the kind of thing nightmares are made of!

Is that a bug on his head?

Why would you do this to us?

Not because it's a maggot, but, all I can think of is the groom's cake.

Belongs on Sesame Street as a character.

Oh my gosh it looks like some horrible cartoon character! Creepy!

I really could’ve gone the rest of my life without knowing that. Keisha Stoddart

looks like a Dune worm, shai hulud

My face after working a 12 with nothing but bitchy nurses and FH directors

Give me another dime; I think I know this chick...

Cross between a donut and a jobbie

They’re dead nice❤️

I could have died happily without ever seeing this picture.

Well that just put me off my breakfast 🤑🤑🤑

Ah yes, the uncircumcised phallus in its natural environment. Chantelle Stengel 😂

Guess Who's Coming To Dinner?

Tony Sanchez is this why you are scared of maggots?

Looks like something from another planet

The greater adjutant won't win a lot of beauty contests, and its lifestyle isn’t pretty either. A member of the stork family, it has skinny, knob-kneed legs, a relatively puny bald head, beady eyes, and an elongated orange pouch that hangs from its neck like a deflated balloon. It is also notable for its smell. Traditionally called hargilas, which means “bone-swallowers,” greater adjutants drag dead carcasses into tree tops, where they eat the flesh and then drop stinky messes of poop onto the ground below. By the 1990s, there were an estimated 400 left in Cambodia, and a few parts of India - making them the rarest stork in the world!
