What's that sound? Listen closely for the “toc toc toc.” That’s the pecking of the Magellanic Woodpecker, the largest of its kind in South America. Extremely territorial, these birds are endemic to austral temperate forests
------------------------------------------------------------------------
Qué es lo que suena? Escucha de cerca el "toc toc toc". Es el taladreo de un Carpintero Negro, que además de ser el más grande de su tipo en nuestro continente, es extremadamente terroitorial y endémico a los bosques templados australes.

#Betta mandor is a #species of #gourami #endemic to the island of #Borneo where it is only known from the #Indonesian province of #Kalimantan Barat where it is found in the #Kapuas basin. It is an inhabitant of streams and pools in forested swamps, usually found in quite shallow waters as low as a few centimetres deep. These are usually shaded from the sun, the dense canopy of branches above meaning very little light penetrates the water surface and marginal vegetation also tends to grow thickly. The water itself is often stained with humic acids and other chemicals released by decaying organic material. The dissolved mineral content is negligible, pH quite low and substrate composed mainly of fallen leaves, branches and submerged tree roots. It feeds on insects and other small invertebrate prey.

💥Endemic to the waters of South Africa, we're super spoilt having these cuties in our kelpy coastal waters 🦈 they are a predominantly nocturnal species but during the day can be found resting on the bottom, between rocks, kelp and crevices (& are apparently not too concerned with napping between/ ontop of urchins) 💥 Another proven fact: The face of a pajama shark has the ability to brighten the most gloomy of Monday's 🐶🦈 #pajamashark #porodermaafricanum #nature #ocean #wildlife #capetown #southafrica #nature #conservation #endemic #cute #urchin #shark #science #marinebiology #gopro

#Anysberg in the #KleinKaroo was founded to conserve #endemic #vegetation, ranging from cape mountain #fynbos to Klein Karoo #veld, and to gradually reintroduce the game species that traditionally inhabited the region.
Visitors to the remote reserve have a choice of accommodation available - from five rustic cottages to the #campsite, or even  the two-sleeper wendy houses at Tapfontein.

This is a Rough Moss Frog, Critically Endangered and only know from a 22km square restricted range on the Klein Swartberg, Caledon, Western Cape.
Arthroleptella rugosa is a tiny, up to 19mm, cryptically marked frog.
This species prefers permanently wet seepages with adequate restioid cover, where females will lay cluthes of up to 12 eggs. The tadpoles are never free swimming, they develop in the egg mass and damp substrate untill they metamorphose into tiny 4mm long froglets.

I've been posting lots of animals so far but let's not neglect the plants! This is an illustration of Rafflesia manillana I produced for Endangered Species International for a trail of interpretive signs in Mount Matutum protected area in the Philippines.

Plants of the genius Rafflesia are known for having some of the largest single flowers in the world, reaching up to 91cm in diameter, with thick leathery petals. The plants themselves are parasitic, living inside the cells of Tetrastigma vine species until they bud. The flowers are said to smell of rotting flesh, which could be used to attract flies for pollination.

Jamaican Citrus Weevil 🇯🇲(Exophthalmus similis Drury), locally known as #policebug,previously considered #endemic to #Jamaica has since been introduced to southern #Florida and the #Bahamas and can be a citrus pest
Eggs are laid in masses between two leaves of the host plant, hatch in about a week and the larvae fall to the ground and burrow into the soil. There they feed on the roots of the plant for 7-8 months, undergoing up to 16 molts, before pupating at a depth of about two feet. The adults emerge at the beginning of the Jamaican rainy season in March, at about the same time the citrus flushes new leaves. Dixon (1954) called #Jamaican Exophthalmus weevils “the most important local pests of citrus.” The larvae are responsible for the most serious damage, “when in sufficient numbers [they] may completely girdle the main roots with the effect of arresting the flow of mineral salts to the higher parts of the host plant. The leaves of such plants develop a chlorotic appearance, turn yellow and wilt”. Exophthalmus species are general feeders including peanuts, coco plum, tropical almond, mango, papaya, cassava and breadfruit, as well as #citrus. #weevil #painted #curculionidae #beetle #beetlesofinstagram #stmary
