Sponsored by @makersmark // Leopards are graceful and powerful big cats closely related to lions, tigers, and jaguars. They live in sub-Saharan Africa, northeast Africa, Central Asia, China, and India (like the one pictured here). However, many of their populations are endangered, especially outside of Africa. Leopards are so strong and comfortable in trees that they often haul their kills into the branches. They can also hunt from trees, where their spotted coats allow them to blend with the leaves until they spring with a deadly pounce. // This Earth Day, protect the resource that connects every living thing: water. @makersmark bourbon is on a mission to remove 75,000 pounds of trash from the world’s oceans and waterways.

The increased humidity during the wet season sets off a chain reaction. Fungi and slime molds race to decompose dead matter on the forest floor. In some jungles, species of fungi outnumber plants 33 to 1. #HostilePlanet

The Crab Nebula, which was first spotted by astronomers in the year 1054, is 6,500 light-years from Earth. At its center is a super-dense neutron star, which rotates once every 33 milliseconds and shoots out rotating lighthouse-like beams of radio waves and light. #Starstruck #LookUp
