All eyes on this beauty! The big eyed trevally is commonly found in large slow moving schools during the day and becomes active at night when feeding! I just love the reflection of the light in those fish! Fish schools are one of my most favorite thing to watch under water ... and of course to shoot!

This explains all that energetic play! More interestingly, a certain growth hormone is only released during sleep, which is why they must rest so much to grow. So hush hush, let them nap!

Orang Johor tahu tak ni ?, Sedihla kalau tak tahu, badak ni dah pupus diJohor dan seluruh semenanjung Malaysia. . . . Even orang Taman Negara Johor pon berbelah bahagi nk kekalkan badak sumatera yang dah pupus sebagai logo. . . . Yang lagi sedihnya tahun 80-90an Johor lah yg mempunyai populasi badak yg terbanyak di semenanjung selain Taman Negara Pahang, sekarang 2-2 pon dah takda. . . DiSabah dalam masa 72jam tingggal 1 sahaja. . . Sedih ? . . #fakta #faktahaiwan #utanujan #animalfacts #animallovers #bekindtoelephants
The Black swan (Cygnus atratus) is a large waterbird, native to Australia. Within Australia they are nomadic, with erratic migration patterns dependent upon climatic conditions. Black swans were introduced to various countries as an ornamental bird in the 1800s, but have escaped and formed stable populations. After being introduced to Europe as pets, they can now be found there in the wild too. The Black swans threatening behavior includes flapping and waving their wings in two or three strokes, followed by a call. The black swans standing stance is unique when threatened, they hold their necks erect with a downward point of the bill along with ruffled feathers. Hmm, something tells me David Paul was being told while this photo was being taken. ⠀ @museumsvictoria @melbournemuseum #biodiversityaustralia #wandervictoria #photooftheday #catchingtheeye #melbournemuseum #whoami #animals #visitvictoria #davidpaul #museumsvictoria #wildlife #photography #wildlifephotography #science #naturalhistory #biodiversity #cuteanimals #nature #naturephotography #animalfacts #animallovers #australiananimals #birdsofinstagram #blackswan #bird

Bighorn sheep ram, outside of Wapiti, Wyoming - Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem. Bighorn sheep are not just ecologically important, but culturally as well. They are among the most admired animals of the Apsaalooke (Crow) people, and Wyoming's Bighorn Mountains of today were central to their tribal lands. These are the mountains I grew up close to. The Crow tell of a legend where a man possessed by evil spirits tries to kill his heir by pushing him off a cliff, but he's caught by the trees and saved. He is rescued by bighorn sheep, and they grant him wisdom, sharp eyesight, sure-footedness, keen ears, great strength, and a strong heart. All attributes of bighorn sheep. He returns to his people with the message that they will survive as long as the river winding out of the mountains is known as Bighorn River. The name of this river can be seen on Lewis and Clark's maps from 1814, and it retains its name to this day. My hometown of Greybull, Wyoming is on the Bighorn River, next to the Bighorn Mountains, in Big Horn County, in the Bighorn Basin! They're an iconic species to the Rocky Mountains, and remind me of home. This photo was taken just east of Yellowstone, in part of the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem. ** Follow me for more facts and photos!

Bighorn sheep ram, near Wapiti, Wyoming, in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem. Say hello to Arnold, who is the Schwarzenegger of bighorn sheep. Look at that neck! This muscular ram is absolutely massive, and is very recognizable by the chip in his left horn. If you follow me, you'll be seeing a lot more of Arnold over the next 19 days/photos. Named specifically for the size of their horns, the term "bighorn" was then used for the basin (where I grew up), the mountain range against the Rockies that surround the basin, and the county. ** Follow me for more facts and photos!

Did you know: The North American River Otter (Lontra canadensis), like other otters, actually has two layers of hair. The inner layer is to trap air and keep them insulated, while the outer layer is made up of long, hydrophobic hairs to keep them dry. . . . . . . #hunterkwildlife #sciencefacts #animalfacts #riverotter #Lontracanadensis #wildlifephotography #tamronmacro #tamronphotography #nikonwildlife #nikond3200 #ottersofinstagram #lvzoo #lehighvalleyzoo #naturephotography #wildphotography #ottersrcool
‘Twas the week before Christmas, and time for a new theme! This week we look at facts around famous #Christmasanimals. First up - Santa’s sleigh pulling, occasionally red nosed and antlered friends Reindeer! (Or Caribou). Here’s a fact- reindeer are the only mammals that can see ultraviolet light. Researchers at University College London discovered that while human vision cuts off at wavelengths around 400 nm, reindeers can see up to 320 nm. This range only covers the part of the spectrum we can see with the help of a black light, but it is still enough to help reindeer see things in the glowing white of the Arctic that they would otherwise miss. Things like white fur and urine are difficult, even impossible, for humans to see in the snow, but for reindeer, they show up in high contrast. Bonus Xmas fact - Santa’s sleigh was most likely pulled by female reindeer as males loose their antlers in December. Interesting!

Video by @joelsartore | The Northern Bald Ibis is a critically endangered species that is highly social and congregates in large flocks. At one time two separate populations existed-- a non-migratory Northern African/European population and a migratory Middle-eastern population. It has been of special focus of both European Zoos and US Zoos to keep a healthy captive population with the intent of preserving the species. Many cultural myths are associated with this species and some scholars believe this species was the representative of the Ancient Egyptian God of Knowledge, Thoth. With the conflicts in Syria and other portions of the Middle East, that migratory population has been under extreme pressure and was feared to have been lost. However, recent sightings have confirmed that a few birds still remain. The good news is that it’s been confirmed that the Northern African population has been growing and is starting to form satellite colonies. The @HoustonZoo, where this bird was photographed, supports this species by being an active member of the SSP (species Survival Plan) and, along with the other Zoos in this program, works to safeguard the species for future generations. To see a portrait of this bird, check out @joelsartore! . . #ibis #birds #mythical #eqyptiangodofknowledge #strangeanimals #weirdnature #nature #conservation #biodiversity #animalfacts #wildlife #wildlifephotography #savetogether #photoark

The Asian Arowana (Scleropages Formosus), while popular in the fish keeping hobby, have recently become endangered in their native waters in South-Eastern Asia. These beautiful fish inhabit the slow, black-waters flowing through forests and swamps. They can grow up to 35in (90cm) and display very diverse colors, depending on their diet and lineage. #animals #fish #animalkingdom #instagramanimal #planetearth #beautiful #birds #mammals #animalfacts #interestingfacts #reptiles #amphibians #allanimalsofearth #nature #animalsofinstagram #cichlid #arowana #asianarowana #asia
The Snakehead Fish (Channidae) is a highly aggressive, predator fish native to Asia and parts of Africa. These fish have recently taken up home in the warm canals of central and southern Florida, and have become quite the invasive species. They are very versatile, as they are able to breathe air with their gills for short amounts of time, which allows them to navigate over short distances on land. #animals #fish #animalkingdom #instagramanimal #planetearth #beautiful #birds #mammals #animalfacts #interestingfacts #reptiles #amphibians #allanimalsofearth #nature #animalsofinstagram #cichlid #snakehead #snakeheadfish #invasive #invasivespecies #asia
The Three Spot Gourami (Trichopodus Thrichopterus) is a Southeastern Asian species. Although this fish is native to Asia, it has been introduced to many different waters around the world. This fish gets its name from the spots located along its sides. They prefer the slow or still standing water of marshes, swamps and canals. #animals #fish #animalkingdom #instagramanimal #planetearth #beautiful #birds #mammals #animalfacts #interestingfacts #reptiles #amphibians #allanimalsofearth #nature #animalsofinstagram #cichlid #gourami #threespotgourami #asia
This term is still used today but isn’t the officially recognised name mostly due to the fact that there are almost 30 different recognised coat colour and patterns for this breed!

The Bald Eagle (Haliaeetus Leucocephalus) can be found near large bodies of water in North America and northern Mexico. It builds the largest nest of any North American bird, weighing up to one metric ton. The Bald Eagle is both the national bird and the national animal of the United States. #animals #fish #animalkingdom #instagramanimal #planetearth #beautiful #birds #mammals #animalfacts #interestingfacts #reptiles #amphibians #allanimalsofearth #nature #animalsofinstagram #cichlid #eagle #baldeagle
The Philippine Eagle (Pithecophaga Jefferyi), also known as “the monkey eating eagle,” can be found exclusively in the Philippines. It is considered the largest eagle species in the world in terms of wing surface. It is among the rarest and most powerful birds in the world, making it the Philippines national bird. #animals #fish #animalkingdom #instagramanimal #planetearth #beautiful #birds #mammals #animalfacts #interestingfacts #reptiles #amphibians #allanimalsofearth #nature #animalsofinstagram #cichlid #eagle #philippines #philippineeagle
The Harpy Eagle (Harpia Harpyja) is among the largest species of eagle in the world. Destruction of this beautiful birds habitats has caused it to move farther and farther south, and it is now found almost exclusively in Brazil. The Harpy Eagle has only one natural predator: the jaguar. #animals #fish #animalkingdom #instagramanimal #planetearth #beautiful #birds #mammals #animalfacts #interestingfacts #reptiles #amphibians #allanimalsofearth #nature #animalsofinstagram #cichlid #eagle #harpy #harpyeagle
The Egyptian Fruit Bat (Rousettus Aegyptiacus) is a species of old-world bat. Although this bat is found in only a few places in Africa, it’s population is more than healthy. These bats easily adapt to captive life in zoos and captive feeding. So much so, that they are commonly kept as pets. ***We do not recommend keeping such animals as pets. Proper training and knowledge is required to handle such a delicate animal*** #animals #fish #animalkingdom #instagramanimal #planetearth #beautiful #birds #mammals #animalfacts #interestingfacts #reptiles #amphibians #allanimalsofearth #nature #animalsofinstagram #cichlid #bat #bats #egytianfruitbat #fruitbat #flyingfox
The Common Vampire Bat (Desmodus Rotundus), like the other three species of vampire bats, are native to the Americas. Like their name suggests, these bats feed on blood. Vampire bats hunt when it’s dark and most of its prey is sleeping. They swoop down, and nibble a small hole into its victim. Then, they slowly lap up the blood from the wound. #animals #fish #animalkingdom #instagramanimal #planetearth #beautiful #birds #mammals #animalfacts #interestingfacts #reptiles #amphibians #allanimalsofearth #nature #animalsofinstagram #cichlid #bat #bats #vampire #vampirebat
The Lesser Short-Nosed Fruit Bat (Cynopterus Brachyotis) is a species of megabat native to Southern Asia and Indonesia. Like it’s name suggests, this bat feeds chiefly on small fruits. Adult males have orange collars while the females display more of a golden yellow color. #animals #fish #animalkingdom #instagramanimal #planetearth #beautiful #birds #mammals #animalfacts #interestingfacts #reptiles #amphibians #allanimalsofearth #nature #animalsofinstagram #cichlid #bat #bats #fruitbat

#Repost @natgeo ( @get_repost) ・・・ Video by @joelsartore | The Sumatran rhino is considered one of the rarest mammals in the world. Poaching is rampant for this species and only about 100 are left living within the fragmented rainforests of Southeast Asia. Pictured here is a female Sumatran rhinoceros named Suci at the @CincinnatiZoo. Suci was one of only two in human care in the United States and one of only 10 worldwide. She was born at the Cincinnati Zoo in 2007 and, to the devastation of her keepers and many other admirers, she passed away in 2014. Suci served as a critical component in the fight to save rhinos by contributing to research on female sexual maturity through the testing of her fecal matter. Because of this research, ongoing breeding programs will have a better chance of propagating the species. To see a portrait of Suci, follow @joelsartore. . . #sumatranrhino #rhino #poaching #criticallyendangered #endangeredspecies #southeastasia #nature #conservation #biodiversity #animalfacts #wildlife #wildlifephotography #natgeo #savetogether #photoark
The Aurora Bluetail, (Ischnura aurora) is a damselfly that can be found from India through southeast Asia all the way down to Tasmania but it’s possible it may turn out to be more than one species based on genetics. It lives in a range of habitats, including marshes and swamps, ponds and lakes and even wet rice fields. This one was photographed at Wilsons Prom during @museumsvictoria and @parksvic’s Prom Bioscan.
