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!

New Species of Frog Discovered!
A new species of marsupial frog has been discovered in Peru's Amazon jungle. The frog belongs to the Gastrotheca genus of tailless frogs. The discovery was made just a few weeks ago in the mountainous area of the Cordilleras de Colan. This new species is distinguished by having a thick granular skin on the back, turquoise eyes and a belly without spots, specks or dots. Great News!

I love the pictures. As you know I do well from afar but don’t do well up close and personal. They just seem to gravitate towards me and it scares me.

Still so wonderful that there is more out there that we have yet to discover. Inspiration to get out in Nature.

What if he's dangerous? Poisonous and deadly? A threat to any human!? We need to catch, dissect and control this beast! Safety over everything!

Does it have a pouch? or does it raise its young in its mouth?

Guess that means another trip to see it!πŸ˜†

Awesome

Smallest Bird In the World!
They are known as a "bee" hummingbird as they are scarcely bigger than a bumblebee. Being so small, they are also considered to have fewer feathers than any other bird on the planet. To say this bird is restless is to put it mildly. They are able to fly for up to 20 hours without a break. What's also interesting is they are thought to have the 2nd fastest heartbeat of any animal in the world. Their heartbeat can reach 1260 beats per minute. The only animal thought to have a faster heartbeat is the Etruscan shrew, that can be up to 1511 beats per minute.
