Day 26 of #SavetheKoalaMonth. Koalas eat a lot of eucalyptus leaves, leaves don’t weigh much either so it’s pretty impressive that they can eat 500g or more a day of leaves!mThey prefer the tip of the branches, which is where the juiciest and softest leaves are. ~ #chrissyskoalafacts #savethekoalamonth #vulnerablespecies #koalamonth #branches #fightforthewild #protectedspecies #koala #habitat #plantmoretrees #koalafacts #koalasbelonginthewild #queenslandemblem #australian #species #fightforourkoalas #nationalicon #shareyourkoalafactswithme #educate #eucalyptusleaves

E is for eland! . The giant eland is the largest species of antelope in the world and are amazing athletes, able to run up to 70km/h and jump 1.5 metres. Both the males and females have these amazing horns, but the males’ are much bigger, at up to 1.2 metres long. Giant elands are native to central and western Africa. Having already been extirpated from some areas of Africa, they are classed as vulnerable there are less than 10,000 mature individuals left. Their population continues to decrease due to hunting, disease and expansion of human and livestock populations. . . . . . . . . . . . . #eland #gianteland #chasethewilderness #alanawoodwardart #antelope #africananimals #antlers #vulnerable #vulnerablespecies #eisfor #nurseryideas #nurseryart #nurserywallart #justacard #bamboopaper #artprint #newbabygift #newbaby #babynameart #babyname #animalnursery #animaltheme #safarinursery #safaritheme #babyshower #babyshowergift #safari #stophunting #worldschooling #unschooling

#Bilbies, or #RabbitBandicoots, are desert-dwelling #marsupial omnivores; they are members of the order #Peramelemorphia. At the time of European colonisation of Australia, there were two species. The #LesserBilby became extinct in the 1950s; the #GreaterBilby survives but remains endangered. It is currently listed as a vulnerable species. It is on average 55cm (22in) long, excluding the tail, which is usually around 29cm (11in) long. Its fur is usually grey or white, it has a long pointy nose and very long ears, hence earning its nickname, the #RabbitEaredBandicoot. Unlike #bandicoots, they are excellent burrowers and build extensive tunnel systems with their strong forelimbs and well-developed claws. A #bilby typically makes a number of burrows within its home range, up to about a dozen, and moves between them, using them for shelter both from predators and the heat of the day. The female bilbys pouch faces backwards, which prevents the pouch from getting filled with dirt while she is digging. Bilbies have a short gestation of about 12–14 days, one of the shortest among mammals. . . . . #Animals #DailyAnimal #DailyAnimals #AnimalOfTheDay #DailyAnimalFeature #AnimalFacts #WildlifeFacts #AnimalsOfInstagram #WildlifeOfInstagram #AnimalPhotos #AnimalPictures #WildlifePhotos #WildlifePictures #InstaAnimals #Bandicoot #VulnerableSpecies

Have you ever wondered why this bird is called Bristled Grassbird? It is because of the five-strong bristles set on its movable flap wings. When you spot them in the large grassland of Surajpur or Corbett during our North India Birding Tour, do observe their wings closely.

Day 25 of #SavetheKoalaMonth. Although genetics tells us we have one species of koalas there are physical differences with Northern and Southern koalas. ~ “The size, colour and shape of koalas differs slightly across eastern Australia. Koalas in Queensland are smaller, lighter in colour and have less fur than those in New South Wales, Victoria and South Australia. Queenslands adult female koalas on average weigh between 5 and 6kg and adult males weigh between 6 and 8kg, compared to Victoria’s adult female koalas with an average weight of 8.5kg and adult males 12kg.”🗒EHP 📷 @australiazoo ~ #chrissyskoalafacts #savethekoalamonth #vulnerablespecies #koalamonth #northernandsouthern #fightforthewild #protectedspecies #koala #habitat #plantmoretrees #koalafacts #koalasbelonginthewild #queenslandemblem #australian #species #fightforourkoalas #nationalicon #shareyourkoalafactswithme #educate #koalaspecies

Day 24 of #SavetheKoalaMonth. Although some call them koala “bears” they’re not bears and this is not the correct terminology. Their proper name is Koala. They are mammals and marsupials, their closest living relative is the wombat and kangaroos. They’re not even closely related to bears. European settlers had not seen anything like them before and mistaken them for a type of bear. ~ #chrissyskoalafacts #savethekoalamonth #vulnerablespecies #koalamonth #marsupial #fightforthewild #protectedspecies #koala #habitat #plantmoretrees #koalafacts #koalasbelonginthewild #queenslandemblem #australian #species #fightforourkoalas #nationalicon #koalahowmuchcanyoubear #educate #koalasarenotbears

Apologies for the lack of posts recently, but I am in fact still alive! I’ve just returned from a week in the Highlands of Scotland, during which time I made three visits to the Highland Wildlife Park. One of the residents of the park is this stunning animal: a female snow leopard called Animesh, who lives with her mate Chan. Animesh herself is a real poser and seemed to very much enjoy having her picture taken. I was able to get some very close views of her and Chan and, being the big cat lover that I am, absolutely loved every minute of it! @highlandwpark #highlandwildlifepark #animals #animalsofinstagram #snowleopard #pantheraunica #snowleopards #leopards #leopard #leopardsofinstagram #snowleopardsofinstagram #cat #cats #catsofinstagram #bigcats #bigcatsofinstagram #wildlife #wildlifephotography #wildanimals #wildlifeportraits #wildlifeportraiture #animalphotography #animalportraiture #rzss #vulnerable #vulnerablespecies #conservation #bigcatsrule

Day 23 of #SavetheKoalaMonth. Male and female koalas can sometimes be difficult to tell apart but there are some distinguishable features. Males have a much larger boofy nose than females, they do have obvious male parts and are usually bigger than females too. Northern males are around 10kg and females weigh around 6kg. When males are mature they will also show a dark brown scent gland on their chest. Females also tend to have the more cuter little faces than males. ~ If a koala has been admitted to a wildlife hospital at any point in its life it will have an ear tag. The place of the ear tag can also tell them apart, if you see one with an ear tag on the left ear it’s a male and females have theirs on their right ear. ~ #chrissyskoalafacts #savethekoalamonth #vulnerablespecies #koalamonth #evolution #fightforthewild #protectedspecies #koala #habitat #plantmoretrees #maleandfemale #koalasbelonginthewild #queenslandemblem #australian #koalaeartag #fightforourkoalas #nationalicon #malekoala #educate #koalaboofynose

Day 22 of #SaveTheKoalaMonth. Koala have unique fingerprints much like ourselves. They are so similar when compared to human fingerprints they are almost indistinguishable. It is thought that koalas evolved fingerprints for grasping branches in the tree tops, much like where our ancestors evolved from. ~ We’re not the only animals to have fingerprints, other primates such as chimps and gorillas have them too but the interesting thing with koalas is that their fingerprints have evolved independently. Pretty amazing when you think there is 70 million years between us in evolutionary terms. The origin of fingerprints is linked to biomechanical adaptation to grasping influencing the skin surface. 📷 @echidnawalkabout_ ~ #chrissyskoalafacts #savethekoalamonth #vulnerablespecies #koalamonth #evolution #fightforthewild #protectedspecies #koala #habitat #plantmoretrees #koalafingerprints #koalasbelonginthewild #queenslandemblem #australian #species #fightforourkoalas #nationalicon #millionsofyears #educate #fingerprints

Day 21 of #SavetheKoalaMonth. Did you know that just about every day koalas change trees? They climb down the tree they’re in, walk along the ground and climb up another tree. ~ There are a few reasons why koalas move to different trees. The first is for food, koalas east a lot of eucalyptus leaves and not just one species. They also move around their home range and patrol the area to maintain contact with their social group but to also find potential mates. The weather and climate too can affect why koalas move from tree to tree. ~ Moving from tree to tree does pose problems with large tree clearing and the presence of predators. With the amount of land clearing koalas need to travel further to find suitable trees and with more of their trees taken away the longer time is spent on the ground where attacks from dogs occur and vehicle strikes from crossing roads to find more trees. There’s so many problems with land clearing we are loosing our koalas and more needs to be done to help them. 📷 @koalaclancy Clancy ~ #chrissyskoalafacts #savethekoalamonth #vulnerablespecies #koalamonth #treeselection #fightforthewild #protectedspecies #koala #habitat #plantmoretrees #koalafacts #koalasbelonginthewild #queenslandemblem #australian #species #fightforourkoalas #nationalicon #koalatreeselection #educate #changetrees

A throwback to last month’s volunteer trip to South Africa and walking with African elephants. At the start of the 20th century there were between 3-5 million African elephants. In the 21st century roughly 415,000 are left in the wild. In 2018 it was announced that the US Fish and Wildlife Service will be lifting bans on elephant and lion hunting trophies. #elephant #elephants #vulnerablespecies #volunteertourism #ecotourism #respectnature #volunteeryourtime #tbt #elephantsofinstagram #animalsanctuary #wildlifesanctuary #wildlifepreserve #southafrica #glenafric #wildlife #bancannedhunting

Its bloody reality | Hippos face extinction too. Unlike their famous savannah buddies, elephants and rhinos, hippos don’t come with a protective human entourage, meaning they are an easier target for poachers. But hippos dont have tusks or horns. Right. But they have teeth. Its a cheaper ivory option and there is a rise in demand for it. Additionally, they are not protected especially well at either a national or international level. Fun fact: Hippos are the closest living relative to whales 🐳 Video @alessiodevecchi #africanconservation #hippo #hippolover #stoppoaching #vulnerablespecies #education #africanwildlife #hipposarecool #ivorytrade #conservation #animation #animalart #virtualreality #design #africart #hippoconservation #rhinoconservation #elephantconservation #digitalart #3d #wildlifetrade #hippopotamus #bloody #bloodyart #motiondesign

Day 20 of #SaveTheKoalaMonth. Koalas have complex social systems and strong social bonds within populations. They have strong social relationships and patrol their boundaries to keep contact within their social group. This is especially important for males. ~ Patrolling our boundaries/maintaining contact with our social group. This is particularly important for dominant males, but is important for all resident koalas. Koalas need to know where others of their populations are, for breeding and to prevent surprises that can lead to stress, competition for food and fights. 🗒 taken from @koalaclancy 📷 @koalaclancy ~ #chrissyskoalafacts #savethekoalamonth #vulnerablespecies #koalamonth #social #fightforthewild #protectedspecies #koala #habitat #plantmoretrees #koalafacts #koalasbelonginthewild #queenslandemblem #australian #species #fightforourkoalas #nationalicon #socialcomplex #educate #socialkoala

Day 19 of #SaveTheKoalaMonth. Although the name “koala” means “no-drink” in aboriginal and Koalas do get most of their moisture from the leaves they eat but it’s usually not enough and they do drink water too. They do not drink much on the ground. ~ When it rains they lick the trunk and branches of the trees their in, this is very effective in they don’t need to come to the ground and can avoid predators. Another way they get water is by grooming themselves when it’s been raining. Grooming also keeps their fur in good condition. ~ #chrissyskoalafacts #savethekoalamonth #vulnerablespecies #koalamonth #protection #fightforthewild #protectedspecies #koala #habitat #plantmoretrees #koalafacts #koalasbelonginthewild #queenslandemblem #australian #water #fightforourkoalas #nationalicon #rain #educate #nodrink

I’ve actually had all of these done for a few weeks now. Just couldn’t remember to take pictures of them at the right time, when the sun was still up. The ceiling light and my desk lamp cast shadows of my hands and phone when I try to take photos using them. Natural light is the best for me so far! 🦒🐘🦓 I wanted to fill up a sketchbook page, practice using my markers, and draw some animals I haven’t drawn before/haven’t in a long time. I think I accomplished all three things here. 🦒🐘🦓 I also recently learned that giraffes have been added to the endangered species/vulnerable species list. I was going to draw a rhinoceros as well, but upon looking into references I learned that the last wild male northern white rhino passed away and the last two females are unable to reproduce. I felt that the small space I had left wouldn’t do the animal justice. And I got a bit emotional. I’ll probably be sketching out a few rhinos on a separate page eventually. 🦏🦏🦏 #reticulatedgiraffe #giraffe #africanelephant #elephant #commonzebra #zebra #thomsonsgazelle #gazelle #wildebeest #endangeredspecies #vulnerablespecies #drawing #art #markerart

Day 18 of #SavetheKoalaMonth. Koalas have the thickest insulating fur of any marsupial. Their fur is adapted to their life in the trees. Studies have shown the resemblance between polar bears who insulate for cold and koala fur which is insulted to our heat too. ~ It can be windy and high up in the tree tops solar radiation can be a problem but koalas have evolved to live in these conditions. They live in tropical hot Queensland down to the cool forests in Victoria and have varied fur for those extreme conditions. ~ #chrissyskoalafacts #savethekoalamonth #vulnerablespecies #koalamonth #protection #fightforthewild #protectedspecies #koala #habitat #plantmoretrees #koalafacts #koalasbelonginthewild #queenslandemblem #australian #koalasfur #fightforourkoalas #nationalicon #insulation #educate #koalafur

Day 17 of #SaveTheKoalaMonth. Did you know we lost millions of koalas in the 1930s as they were shot for their fur?! European settlers identified the Koala as a source of fur to trade, and in ten years up until the 1930s, millions of Koalas were shot for their pelts. ~ By 1924 Koalas were extinct in South Australia, severely depleted in New South Wales, and estimates for Victoria were as low as 500 animals. At this time, the focus of the fur trade moved north to Queensland. In 1919 the Qld Government announced a six month open season on Koalas, and in that period alone, 1 million Koalas were killed. Although the season officially remained closed until 1927, when the season re-opened, over 800,000 were slaughtered in just over 1 month. Public outrage at the slaughter forced governments in all states to declare the Koala a Protected Species by the late 1930s. However, no such laws were brought in to protect the gum trees upon which Koalas rely for their food and shelter. This remains the case throughout the Koalas range. ~ Some koala experts say that they have not recovered since then. With so many slaughtered for fur the populations have suffered throughout their home range and we no longer have them in South Australia. Since this huge amount lost trying to increase populations is difficult with increasing land clearing. We need more protection for not only koalas but their habitat too. ~ #chrissyskoalafacts #savethekoalamonth #vulnerablespecies #koalamonth #protectthierhome #fightforthewild #protectedspecies #koala #habitat #plantmoretrees #koalafacts #koalasbelonginthewild #queenslandemblem #australian #species #fightforourkoalas #nationalicon #koalafurtrade #disgrace #koalafur

Day 16 of #SaveTheKoalaMonth. It’s that time of year when young are dispersing from their mothers and it’s the time we have a lot of trauma. Males are leaving their mothers to find their own home ranges. ~ Backriders is the term for koalas that are old enough they have moved from the pouch onto mothers belly or back. Koalas are born 32-38 days after conception. They then stay in their mothers pouch for another 7 months or so before coming out of the pouch onto their mothers back. ~ #chrissyskoalafacts #savethekoalamonth #vulnerablespecies #koalamonth #koalasaregreatmums #fightforthewild #protectedspecies #koala #habitat #plantmoretrees #koalafacts #koalasbelonginthewild #queenslandemblem #australian #species #fightforourkoalas #nationalicon #shareyourkoalafactswithme #backriderkoala #backrider

Day 15 of #SaveTheKoalaMonth. This image is pretty impressive. Koalas are pretty adaptable living in the tree tops and do have some pretty crazy on the coast that they come into contact with. Koalas can jump (well more like a leap) up tree trunks pretty quickly and from branch to branch can jump up to 2m! ~ They have sharp claws that help them climb branches and can leap from branch to branch if necessary. They always carefully measure up their jump before taking the plunge. In danger a koala will climb and leap up a tree very quickly. 📷Betty Boo taken by Trudi Timbs. ~ #chrissyskoalafacts #savethekoalamonth #vulnerablespecies #koalamonth #koalascanleap #fightforthewild #protectedspecies #koala #branchjumper #plantmoretrees #koalafacts #koalasbelonginthewild #queenslandemblem #australian #species #fightforourkoalas #nationalicon #leap #jump #koalajump

Day 14 of #SaveTheKoalaMonth. I’ve heard so many comments about hearing koalas at night and how loud or smelly they are. Well they’re not really that smelly but male koalas can be quite loud. Male koalas have one of the loudest calls on the planet. Through my time with koalas I have heard some noises I didn’t think a koala could make. ~ Researchers have found that male koalas advertise their size by changing the resonance of their calls. The more louder the more attractive for females. The larger koalas heads are the louder the calls. Koalas have a descended larynx lower down in their throat giving more room for the vocal tract above it to extend further. Koalas do make other sounds though and females also bellow but not for mating purposes. ~ #chrissyskoalafacts #savethekoalamonth #vulnerablespecies #koalamonth #protectthierhome #fightforthewild #koalascanbeloud #koala #loudkoalas #plantmoretrees #koalafacts #koalasbelonginthewild #queenslandemblem #australian #beingloudgetsthegirls #fightforourkoalas #nationalicon #shareyourkoalafactswithme #bellow #koalabellow

Hier, nous avons observé un pygargue à tête blanche juché sur une branche d’arbre de l’île aux fraises. Ce grand oiseau de proie fait partie des 22 espèces d’oiseaux en péril répertoriées sur le territoire.Majestueux n’est-ce pas? Si vous venez vous promener sur la rivière, gardez l’œil ouvert! #pygargueàtêteblanche #vulnerablespecies #oiseauduquebec #parc1000iles #naturephotography #experiencelaval

So majestic! We are lucky to share our plant with the graceful great blue heron. I am so lucky that @aluscanada allows me to share such spectacular moments. #vulnerablespecies #conservation #biology #ecology #workperks #sunrise #princeedwardisland #greatblueheron #ilovemyjob #grateful #letsprotectthis #morenatureplease #natureforall

Once thought as #animals that sweat #blood, the #hippopotamus or the “river horse” secretes an oily red substance which acts as a skin #moistener and #sunblock. Cool huh? These #herbivores can spend up to 16 hours submerged in water and although they are not great #swimmers, they can stay #underwater for up to 5 minutes even when #sleeping! Their autonomic nervous system allows them to #float to the surface for a breath of air without waking up. #hippos #happyasahippo #secondlargestmammal #stealthmode #grazers #grass #africa #vulnerablespecies #yawnbewarned #dangerous #chomp #herds #semiaquatic #wild #wildlife #lakes #rivers #travelini_app #apptravelini #letshitthebucketlist

Its good to be the king. . Face to face with the largest #venomous #snake in the world. This #kingcobra slithered along the mangrove beaches of #sungeibuloh looking for its next meal. At one point it crept along some fencing in the sand, allowing me to snap some fun shots from the opposite side while it stared me down. Of course I always keep a safe and responsible distance when shooting. Best estimate this one was near 4 meters. Swipe for some close-ups of both the face and tail. . #snakesofinstagram #snakesofig #sgsnakes #singaporesnakes #reptilesofinstagram #reptilesofig #snakesoftheworld #ophiophagushannah #elapidae #nparksbuzz #sungeibulohwetlandreserve #threatened #vulnerablespecies #threatenedspecies #chordata #reptilia #reptile #neurotoxin

Day 13 of #SavetheKoalaMonth. This is Cuddles the Koala, he lived in Noosa National Park. He brought happiness to thousands who saw him. You can read his story by purchasing a cuddles book for $15. The story was written by Meghan & Rex from @koalacrusaders and photo taken by Bernard of Noosa Koala Sightings. ~ He is the most photographed koala in Noosa National Park. One day he got sick which happens even more often now with the increased land clearing. For the rest of his amazing story you’ll need to get his book! ~ He does live on though in Misty’s Cuddles of the You Yangs in Victoria. Cuddles is honoured by Koala Clancy Foundation supporters in Victoria, follow Koala Clancy to see all about Misty’s Cuddles and follow her story too. ~ #chrissyskoalafacts #savethekoalamonth #vulnerablespecies #koalamonth #noosanationalpark #fightforthewild #protectedspecies #koala #habitat #plantmoretrees #koalafacts #koalasbelonginthewild #queenslandemblem #australian #cuddlesthekoala #fightforourkoalas #nationalicon #shareyourkoalafactswithme #cuddles #koalacuddle

Rüppells #vulture, or Rüppells #griffon vulture is sadly critically endangered. Its population of about 30,000 is decreasing because of habitat loss and other factors. It is the highest flying bird, flying up to with confirmed evidence of a flight 37,000 feet above sea level. I photographed this one at #KuriaHillsLodge in #NorthernSerengeti, #Tanzania. #birdsofprey #raptor #endangeredspecies #vulnerablespecies #criticallyendangered #africanbirds #birdsofafrica #africanwildlife See more: 🐦 ‪Facebook.com/owendeutschphotography‬ 🐦 owendeutsch.com
