One of the largest European grasshoppers. The egyptian locust can grow up to 7cm of length. They are usually grey or brown, and they are easily identifiable by the characteristic vertical stripes in their eyes. Like in other locusts, antenna are short and robust and posterior tibiae are loaded with a row of small spines. 𝘈𝘯𝘢𝘤𝘳𝘪𝘥𝘪𝘶𝘮 𝘢𝘦𝘨𝘺𝘱𝘵𝘪𝘶𝘮 feeds on leaves of many plants and it's a solitary species not harmful to crops. In juveniles, which can be yellow or bright green in color, the wings are absent or small and they develop gradually. These grasshoppers inhabit trees and shrubs, scrub land and orchards in warm and bright environments, being very common in Europe and North Africa.

Normalmente son grises o marrones, y son fácilmente identificables por las características rayas verticales en los ojos.

𝘈𝘯𝘢𝘤𝘳𝘪𝘥𝘪𝘶𝘮 𝘢𝘦𝘨𝘺𝘱𝘵𝘪𝘶𝘮 se alimenta de hojas de muchas plantas pero es solitaria y no representa ningún peligro para las cosechas. En juveniles, que pueden ser amarillos o verde claro, las alas estan ausentes o son pequeñas y se van desarrollando gradualmente. Estoas langostas habitan árboles y arbustos, matorrales y zonas de conreo en ambientes abiertos y cálidos, siendo muy común en Europa y norte de África.

I didn’t have very long in London, but I made sure to make time to admire the incredible collection at @grantmuseumucl; bones, fossils, wet specimens, dried invertebrates and stunning models, from laboratory mice to the extinct thylacine, and a beautiful ophidian display featuring a full adult African rock python skeleton. It was hard to pick favourites from all the photographs I took, but here we have in order an exploded human skull, the aforementioned python skeleton, the brain of a young tiger (probably a historical specimen, as the tiger was reclassified from Felis to Panthera in 1939!), a Bengal tiger skeleton and the largest thylacine skull on display in any collection. The staff were very friendly, passionate about zoology and went above and beyond assisting with my enquiries, the quality and variety of specimens was so impressive, and the consideration the museum gives to historical issues such as racism and slavery in science gave me a new insight into something I was completely (and shamefully!) uninformed on. If you’re ever in the area - not far from Camden - and have any kind of interest in zoology or anatomy, I would highly recommend paying a visit!

Stumbled on a goat party at work 🐐😍
. Houston Zoo goats love obstacle courses! Goats are super smart and very food motivated. Pair that with great trainers and they can show off some awesome skills. Training like this is enrichment for animals, guests, and keepers! . #enrichment #training @cz_gracie @marisolgomezslb @houstonzoo

Another one of this seasons Eastern Massasauga rattlesnakes(Sistrurus catenatus) a few months back, this individual a newborn neonate spotted by @swamprattler, @bob_ferguson_fascinature and company while I was fixated on photographing my lifer northern watersnake.

Spending countless hours in search for these snakes during my spring and summer in Michigan was a very humbling experience. And being able to have knowledgeable company such as Nick really made me appreciate and learn more into the biology, behaviour, and activities of this species. Never before had I ever associated a rattlesnake so tied and dependent to its wetland and woodland habitats. From hibernating and long periods of inactivity in crayfish burrows due to the harsh winter conditions of the Midwest, to the varying habitat preferences you can find these snakes all dependent on the time of year, this species has a lot going on for itself. Where these snakes occur should be cherished and protected by those who share its space.

The Red Squirrel is always associated with conifer trees as the seeds found within their cones form an important component of their diet.  Seeds of other plants, insects, mushrooms, tree sap and even young birds are also consumed by Red Squirrels.  Unlike Grey Squirrels, which spread their buried seeds across their home range, Red Squirrels create piles of stored food.  These squirrel middens are a sign of Red Squirrels in the area.  Bear and other granivores (i.e., seed-eaters) raid squirrel middens when found.  Most people first notice a Red Squirrel when they are scolded by a chattering squirrel from above.
The Red Squirrel is native to the cooler forests of the US and Canada with required abundance of conifer trees.  While Red Squirrels are active and vocal.  They can be quite feisty when defending territory from rival Red Squirrels.  Only Red Squirrels will occurs in forests composed chiefly of conifers, and too few deciduous trees.  Only Grey Squirrels will live in forests with few conifers.  Red and Grey Squirrels may be sympatric (i.e., live in the same area) in mixed forests composed of both deciduous, the seeds of which are important to Grey Squirrels, and coniferous trees.

THE COMPASSION PARADOX 🦎
.
.
This magnificent creature is a banded Fiji iguana (Brachylophus fasciatus) I photographed at @reptielenhuisdeaarde last month. As the name suggests, this species is endemic to the insular ecosystem of Fiji, where it used to thrive up in the trees of local forests. I say "used to" because Fiji iguanas are currently endangered- the main reasons being habitat loss to human development and invasive species such as domestic cats. 🦎
In recent times, conservation has witnessed the rise of an approach to the cause of protecting nature that advocates for compassion to be the main criterion for saving the world's biodoversity. Compassionate conservationists, as they call themselves, are concerned with the welfare of the individual animal rather than the stability of populations and ecosystems. Notably, their response to the devastation brought by invasive species is often simply "do no harm" and let them be because we have supposedly no right to cull them for ethical reasons (even removal via capturing would be problematic since compassionate conservationists are generally hostile to captivity as well). How one could possibly consider allowing entire species to be pushed to the brink of extinction by refusing to act as "no harm" is beyond me- we introduced invasives, and we must at least try to fix things even if it requires lethal measures. 🦎
Yes, animals are capable of complex feelings as compassionate conservationists argue- that is beyond reasonable doubt. Yes, animal welfare does matter- again, nobody is questoning that. However, their stubborn obsession with "doing no harm" to invasive species is a potential disaster in the making for countless animals and plants, like Fiji iguanas. If you support that philosophy, let me tell you this: YOU HAVE NO MORAL HIGH GROUND WHATSOEVER. Yours comes across as an attempt to avoid responsibility while trying to pass as the hero of the story when there is no heroism in watching entire species disappear. I agree 100% that compassion is essential for a conservationist- but you really need to consider how you decide to apply it.

🇺🇸 IL BISONTE AMERICANO!!!!
.
🤔 Il bisonte americano è un mammifero artiodattilo della famiglia dei bovidi.
In nord america vivono due sottospecie: B.b. bison, il bisonte delle pianure centrali e B.b athabascae, il bisonte dell'Alaska e del Canada nordoccidentale.
I maschi sono più grandi delle femmine, possono raggiungere anche i 190 cm al garrese e pesano in media 750-900 kg.
Rispetto agli altri bovidi presenta corna piccole e una gobba piuttosto pronunciata, questo perché la parte anteriore del corpo è più sviluppata rispetto ai quarti posteriori.
In natura i principali nemici di questo animale sono il lupo e l'orso grizzly.
I bisonti vengono sempre più allevati per le loro carni e il loro pellame: la sua carne ha un minor contenuto di grassi e colesterolo ma ha più proteine.
Questo ha portato allo sviluppo del beefalo, un ibrido prodotto dall'incrocio tra il bisonte e il toro.
