And once again one of those feared animals people find scary and spooky and I find fascinating 😄 Stop for a moment and think: how cool and original are webs?!?! They are natural masterpieces! Question 🤔▶️ Why do people fear spiders so much? If they eat mosquitoes!!! If there’s one at home, just get a box and take her out 😊 •

Hi there!! I have noticed every time I post something there’s always a comment saying “ohhh I want one or let’s get one of these” and it makes me extremely sad because I intended exactly the contrary with this account: raise awareness and show animals belong into the wild, nowhere else!!!! 💚🌍 Look at these happy dolphins; the sea is the only place in which you should see them jump 💙 Just a question: is it necessary to see dolphins jumping in the zoos? When did this become a need for all societies all over the world? Let’s change our mindset. #emptythetanks #animalsrights

🐝🐝How does a bee become queen? 🤔🕵🏻‍♀️ Easy -> When a new queen is needed, some random larvae are fed royal jelly (segregated from bees glands) and the first one kills the developing queens and becomes the new one 👸 So yea, if fed royal jelly every bee could be a queen! However, most bees have a less nutritious diet and hence become workers. Only one makes it to the top every 6 yeas approx! 👑 •

Slow axolotl 😄
Did you know they are typically black in the wild and are only found in one specific place in the world? Who knows the country?!?! • •

Hello there! Have you ever wondered why lizards drop their tails when threatened and what effect does this have on them? The former is a defence mechanism to hopefully distract the predator and give them time to escape. Although tail loss is natural, it has some consequences:
1️⃣ Loss of sense of balance
2️⃣ Loss of fat deposits, so they need more nutrients than usual. They also need more energy and protein for regenerating it.
3️⃣ The reproductive system stops in adults and juveniles stop growing until their tail is fully recovered.
4️⃣ Susceptible to predators
5️⃣ The new tail will unlikely resemble the original and it usually cannot drop again as it’s cartilage.
6️⃣ If the lizard is prepared for it, it shouldn’t hurt. If there’s notorious blood, something went wrong and needs more attention.
▶️ Conclusion: Be nice & careful!!! 🦎 Have a nice day! Video by @iphotolarry

“Despite having the most powerful bite in nature, she carefully gathers them in a throat pouch beneath a stockade of deadly teeth. She is as gentle as a croc could ever be. She won’t leave any behind”, Nature on PBS. Just extraordinary!!!!!! 🐊

Did you ever notice cheetahs do not roar? 😏 They actually meow like our little pet friends! Only Panthers (lions, jaguars, tigers and leopards) can do it as they have a special hyoid bone throat. All cats can purr tho! I’d also purr if I could now, as it is Friday! Have a great weekend everyone and don’t forget to check out previous posts to learn other interesting animal facts 😊❤️•

Hi there! Today I decided to post this stunning picture of this stunning bird, a bee-eater! (although they can also eat small fish 🤔) I love them so much that this is actually my iphone wallpaper! Don’t they just look so colourful and like they have got make up on? 💄 This pic was taken by @_sanjayprasad , a great photographer and friend I met on here! Have a great day everyone 😘

Hi there! Have you ever wondered whyyyy such a big animal such as the panda 🐼 has tiny, hairless, helpless looking babies? 🙊 It’s mainly because of their diet: bamboo is hard to digest and, hence, pandas have a slow metabolism with low-blood oxygen. The tiny panda has a better shot of surviving and growing up and fast in the outside!🍼🐼 Would you have guessed this was a bear cub? (Be honest! :P)
