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!”

Very cool video footage of monarch butterfly migration and wintering.

One of nature’s great spectacles. So wonderful to see. Thank you for sharing 🙏🏽😍

My brother in Ontario planted milkweed at the family cottage near Honey Harbour and now is visited by many more monarchs than I recall as a kid.

Awesome and so beautiful ❤

Great BIG Podcast!
They were unstoppable, and ruled the regions lion population for years. Called the “4 Musketeers”, their genetic impact has been monumental. Here’s part of the story (and a bit more), as told by our Great Big Nature naturalist, Brian Keating, fresh from the Serengeti. (Listening time: ~8min)

This is a rare phenomenon, called 'cross waves'. It happens when two waves coming from different directions meet in a particular way at different depths - basically one wave is riding on top of the other in another direction. Because of this, the 'crosswave' phenomenon can only be observed from above and cannot be seen from the beach... which makes things tricky, because these waves are very, very dangerous for swimming.

I thought it was ham at first... 🤣

Beautiful but treacherous. Is that the same as a rip tide?

Never knew about this.

WOW, Thank you for the details. It is absolutely Breathtaking.

Now... this is a frog!
The Goliath frog, also known as the giant slippery frog, is the largest known frog species in the world. It can be found in Equatorial Guinea / Cameroon in West Africa and will weigh as much as a small dog (8-10 lbs).

The climbing ability of goats never ceases to amaze us. Sometimes when hiking we will see them in spots that seems almost impossible. This photo was taken in Sperlonga, Latina, Italy.

Like human fingerprints, the unique array of spots on an eagle ray's hide can be used to identify individuals...No two are alike. This is very handy when it comes to studying and researching these amazing creatures.
