Sharp-Tailed Grouse! It’s an avian mosh-pit! The males arrive before dawn, they move in position into an area called a "lek", and begin to dance like their life depends on it! In reality, the species has evolved to depend on this behaviour to continue the species very survival! When a female arrives, the dance intensity goes through the roof.

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. Connect with Nature! Photo: OneWhale ... See MoreSee Less
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
Horrifying combination of Jabba The Hutt, a walrus and the shrunken head guy from Beetlejuice.
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!
Why does this thing remind me of Doofy🤷
Looks like a bug eyed walrus! 🤣
Looks like my ex.
When fishing as kids we would pop a maggot under the tongue to get it dancing before it went on hook...not sure i would now !!!
That’s the kind of thing nightmares are made of!
Is that a bug on his head?
Why would you do this to us?
Did that one come from Marine Corps basic?
Looks like tusk 🤣🤣
Not because it's a maggot, but, all I can think of is the groom's cake.
Belongs on Sesame Street as a character.
My face after working a 12 with nothing but bitchy nurses and FH directors
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
Give me another dime; I think I know this chick...
Well, whatever works I suppose. Ain't nature beautiful.
Cross between a donut and a jobbie
It even has its own creepy hosts
They’re dead nice❤️
I could have died happily without ever seeing this picture.
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! Connect with Nature! ... See MoreSee Less
