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!”

Meet the Rubber Nosed Swamp Donkey!
It's an iconic animal of the Canadian landscape. Close to over 1 million moose call Canada home - more than any other country in the world. And as the name above suggests - they are completely at home in the water. Moose are excellent swimmers and are the only deer species capable of diving up to depths of 25 ft (7.6 m) to feed on the bottom of rivers and lakes? And if you are ever in the Yukon, don't be surprised if you hear someone call a moose by its common name, the “Rubber-nosed Swamp Donkey”. It's not the most flattering of names - but it does kind of fit.

Lynx travels amazing distance!
Not so long ago, scientists weren’t sure how far one lynx could travel. But in the last 5 years, researchers with the Northwest Boreal Lynx Project have documented the cats taking epic journeys, longer and more challenging than ever thought possible. One of the project’s star travelers, nicknamed Hobo, was radio-collared in Alaska’s Tetlin National Wildlife Refuge in March 2017, just over the border from the Yukon. The lynx took off from his home range in June 2017, and, by July 2018 had traveled a whopping 3500 km (2174 miles), across mountains and often powerful rivers. Before the study, scientists thought lynx maintained territories of about 30 sq/km (20 miles). So why are the cats making such long treks? The scientists believe they’re hunting snowshoe hare, and sometimes that means travelling a really, really long way to find their next meal.

We have filmed hippos many times over the years. And this photo shows why we often call them 'sausages with feet'. Now, this might not be the most flattering angle... but you can see why we came up with this nickname.

Love this shot as usually you only see them peaking out at you above the water.

...and the closest terrestrial mammal related to whales... the connection to the common ancestor through the fossil record and furthermore; genetics,... is amazing.

I definitely agree! Great shot!

Lol Every picture tells a story !!

Looking like a bird that was slapped together from left-over bird parts, the King vulture is the second largest vulture in the world.
The king vulture features a strikingly coloured neck and head, but then nothing but bare skin, this is an adaptation to prevent bits of bacteria from the dead animals on which they feed getting caught in their skin. From head to tail the adult king vulture measure 71- 81cm (28 - 32in). Their wingspan can range from 1.2-2m (4-6.6ft). They may weigh up to 3.7kg (8lb). King vultures also had an important role in Mayan society. It was viewed as a carrier of messages between the gods and the Mayans. So, don't mess with them.

Hermoso

Such a mixture of feelings when you study them. A little bit of repulsiveness and beauty balanced by gracefulness in flight. What a fascinating combination!

I know that vultures are an important part of the eco system; however, I find them ugly and stinky birds.

Do these naked guys even fly...

Increíble 😮😮

I love to watch vultures flying. They are the true rulers of the sky.

Amazing adaptation... so specific.

Living the High-Life!
Last summer, scientists reported finding the world’s highest-dwelling mammal, a yellow-rumped leaf-eared mouse, which was seen scampering among the upper reaches of Llullaillaco, the world’s highest historically active volcano, straddling Argentina and Chile. It’s incredible that anything could live that high, at 22,110 feet - there is no vegetation, and seemingly nothing to eat. Here, at the edge of the Atacama Desert, there is little rain, and temperatures sometimes plunge. It’s hard to overstate how hostile an environment it is. Just goes to show how resilliant nature can be.
