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!”

Say hello to Porcupette!
Baby porcupines are known as porcupettes. They are born with soft, bendable quills that don't begin to harden until a few days after they are born. And when the quills do grow in - there will be 30,000 of them!

Nature can have many different looks. And as we approach halloween - we thought this might be appropriate. In this photo (taken in the Outer Banks of North Carolina), the fog was coming in and it made these gnarly tree roots look like lost souls rising from the water.

Scientists revived tiny worms that had been frozen in permafrost for 42,000 years! After being removed from Siberian permafrost, the worms were gradually thawed in a lab until they started moving around and consuming food. The worms, known as nematodes or more commonly as roundworms weren't actually dead it seems - just cyrogenically preserved. But think of it... sitting in ice for over 40,000 years and all of a sudden you wake up in a Russian lab sitting in a petry dish - looking for some lunch! Incredible the power of nature! This marks the first documented time multi-cellular organisms have returned to functioning after being frozen in permafrost.

Fascinating & yes, interesting!

I am concerned about bacteria and viruses released from the permafrost

Porque durante 42.000 estan ml ya no fumen Hierba

🙄please don’t thaw out ancient viruses 🤦🏻‍♀️ This world is going thru enough shit as it is🦠

Anyone study the risks of being re-introduced?

Para que sirven o en que veneficion o alrato van a salir con otro virus

Este no es el año para descongelar gusanos redondos, bueno, que podría salir mal?

Ke mal x eso hay tantos virus

Hey

Luego llegan más Virus

Diego Garrido prehistoric plastivores options 😎

Tony Bullard

Que estupidez

La necedad del ser humano en revivir lo que ya fue su tiempo y espacio, únicamente provocará la autodestrucción 😕

Y los virus a todo

and we brought them back to life for???? Maybe there was a reason they were asleep. One day some idiot will be the demise of us all

Esto no es nuevo le paso al capitán América solo que a el dueño 70 años!😅

Amazing?... on it's face. Russian scientists waking up and feeding 40,000 year old parasitic roundworms in 2020?.... how can THAT possibly go wrong?!?

I’ve seen this movie...

Yeah that is a risky affair, reviving fossils like that . What these critters do would not be known until they start doing it. Yes it’s be fascinating to code their genres and do the phylogenetic analysis etc, but they better never get out of the lab!!

This seems horrifying - what else was frozen in that permafrost that we are not prepared to handle when it comes back to life after thawing!

And people think they are important and the top of the food chain! Why would they teach that in church. Nature by far, more than what ever we know.

Actually, I'm wondering how they can prove this is the first time nematodes thawed out of permafrost and lived?

They're going to defrost a hideous plague worst than this Covid if they keep playing with this old crap. Leave well enough alone
