Scientists have discovered a new species of exploding ant which sacrifice themselves when attacked to protect the rest of the colony. Exploding ants were first observed in 1916, but little is known about the rare insects; in order to find out more a research team of entomologists, botanists, microbiologists and chemists from Austria, Thailand and Borneo ventured into the forests of Southeast Asia for new information. In the forests of Borneo they discovered the nearest species of exploding ant since 1935. When attacked, the ants latch onto their opponent and flexes its abdomen so hard that it ruptures and explodes, spraying the attacker with a toxic yellow liquid stored within its glands. This causes immediate death to the ant, in a similar way to bumblebees stings. Only sterile females can explode in this way, but seeing as how all workers are female and only the queen has babies this does not prevent the insects from dying for their family. Interestingly, the smell of these toxins are said to be very similar to curry. As well as their suicidal explosions, the larger “doorkeeper” ants around the nest entrances, barricade the nest and fend off any intruders. #usoa #u_s_o_a #universalsocietyofanimals #news #animal #animals #animalkingdom #nature #wild #wildlife #conservation #species #new #discovery #ant #insect #suicide #explodingant #exploding #asia #borneo #science #sos #saveourspecies

Everyone talks about saving the earth, but what people don’t understand is that the earth doesn’t need saving. Nature will continue to evolve long after our species is gone. What really needs saving is humanity. Are we going to acknowledge that we are part of nature and correct our mistakes, or will we be the creators of our own downfall? The choice is yours. Also, no one pays attention to the things that matter but they’ll pay attention to a girl in a swimsuit, so here’s a pic of me in a bikini in the hopes you’ll actually read this caption and get something out of it. 🤷🏽‍♀️🤦🏽‍♀️

The Dominican Republic has passed a legalisation that prohibits the sale of dolphins which is said to cover a period of five years. During this time, dolphins cannot be purchased or sold within the Caribbean nation. While the ruling does not prevent the captivity of dolphins at current facilities it is still believed that it will make an impact, making it “more difficult, if not impossible” to open new dolphinariums. @dolphin_project said “we applaud the ministry for taking this action, as this is an important advance for the local activists who have been working hard to defend the freedom of dolphins.” They encourage the government to extend this legalisation indefinitely, and eliminate facilities, including swim-with programs that claim profits from the captivity of dolphins. In recent dolphin news, @richardbranson has announced plans to open North America’s first dolphin sea sanctuary which will offer a “natural and much larger home” for several dolphins that were rescued from captivity. Branson said the move will “hopefully set a wonderful example for both marine entertainment and tourism operators who have faced increasing pressure over the welfare of whale and dolphins.” He believes it is the first step in a long journey to end the use of cetaceans for human entertainment. #usoa #u_s_o_a #universalsocietyofanimals #news #animal #animals #animalkingdom #nature #wild #wildlife #conservation #dolphin #dolphinproject #richardbranson #captivity #seaworld #seaworldcares #ocean #marine #ricobarry #sos #saveourspecies

Running home from work on a Monday like....
.
Did you guys know the when the mother turtle lays her eggs on the beach, the temperature of the sand determines the gender of baby sea turtles - cooler sand producing more males, and warmer sand producing more females
.
According to the NOAA, sea turtle genetic diversity may shrink with climate change, producing more female turtles. 🤯
