A stunning Panther Chameleon filmed in Madagascar, the only place on earth where they’re naturally found. Can you believe those colors??
⠀
“Chameleons have two layers of special skin cells. The upper layer can change color by changing its structure and how it reflects lights.
⠀
Unlike other animals that change color, such as the squid and octopus, chameleons do not modify their hues by accumulating or dispersing pigments within their skin cells, the researchers found. Instead, the lizards rely on structural changes that affect how light reflects off their skin.” - Excerpt from Live Science article by Laura Geggel.

The moment before a #whale delivers a #deadly blow to a #Prey the #Orca first uses its tail to push the shark near the #surface.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Then the Orca swings its #tail up, the raised #fin is about to come crashing down like a #KarateChop on the shark's head

On a recent privately guided safari to the #sabisands we enjoyed a magnificent encounter as two male leopards squared off against one another. A large part of the interaction between the two cats consisted of lateral walking displays, an effort used to demonstrate the size of each male, hoping to intimidate the opposition. They would also constantly emit a low growl & also scent-mark often & very visibly, as can be seen here.

I really love capturing animal behaviour such as this. I believe understanding wildlife & their associated behaviours sets the @wildeyesa team apart from other operators. What does it matter? Well, if the Wild Eye guides can predict what animals will do before they even do it, YOU as our guest can view & photograph it from the best possible position ;)

The sights and sounds of a healthy reef. Sea turtles feeding, loads of shrimp snapping in the background noise, intact and complex coral reef below. Did you know that the sounds of different reefs help fish and coral larvae decide where to settle out from the water column? Interesting fact! @cainedelacy ⁣⁣

Look at the #size of this #feeding giant #BalleenWhales mostly dine on #smallfish, #krill (tiny #crustaceans) and #plankton. To eat #prey, they take large #gulps of water. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
For example an average size #humpbackwhale can hold approximately 5,000 #gallons (18,927 #liters) in its mouth, and eat up to 3,000 #lbs. (1,360 #kilograms) of food per day

Привет, Том!
Этот удачный кадр гавайской болотной совы поймал фотограф Том Куалии. Местные уважительно называют эту сову «Пуэо» в честь бога, защищающего дух древних гавайцев. Она гнездится в углублениях в земле и охотится на мелких грызунов, болотных птиц и даже ловит рыбу.

It’s beyond us why this octopus isn’t in its natural habitat 😠 Although, it’s so fascinating that it has the cognitive ability to know how to free itself by unscrewing the lid! It’s mind-blowing! 🐙😲
