Takeover by new Associate Fellow @maxime_aliaga // The Chocó-Darién is the only humid tropical forest on the Pacific side of South America, stretching from southern Panama to the north of the Ecuador. It is one of the largest "hotspots" of biodiversity on the planet, many species of plants and animals only live here. Indeed, the forests of Chocó-Darién are homes to a large number of species that are not found anywhere else on earth like this the long-wattled umbrellabird (Cephalopterus penduliger). To get this precious picture, of this very rare bird, it took me one more than a week! Once I get to know the “lek” (the display site) I came every morning at dusk hiding myself in a blind. Male came displaying very early in the morning to seduce the female, there were very few light so it made it very complicated to get the shot. After trying few days, I finally manage to get this only picture where you can appreciate his very long “tie” unique and characteristic of this species. . . . #Ecuador #Conservation #birds #Choco #Rainforest #endemic #endangered #ilcp_photographer #conservationphotography #FCAT #Umbrellabird #natgeo #natgeoexplorer @fcat_ecuador

This glowing green insect is a unicorn katydid at @auduboninstitute. Their Insectarium has been working to successfully raise unicorn katydids in captivity since they opened just over 10 years ago. Like most other katydids, females can be distinguished from males by their ovipositor– an egg-laying body part shaped like a spear that protrudes from the end of the abdomen. In this genus, the ovipositor is exceptionally long– with a length that exceeds the rest of the insect’s entire body! Unicorn katydids tend to get disturbed fairly easily if something unfamiliar touches them— resulting in either a fast jump or a hard bite.

I’m proud to be featured at @discovery 😀😀😀 Recommend you all to visit this awesome site. #Repost @discovery with @get_repost ・・・ "The bearded tit is a rare find in Norway, so when I got a tip that some of these birds were spotted about an hour away from me, I went out to look for them. I stumbled upon three of them. They had brushed their feathers to gain warmth and looked like fluffy snowballs." 📸 + caption by David Drangsland (@bird_drangsland) . . . . #adventure #travel #nature #photography #love #photooftheday #explore #wanderlust #naturephotography #instagood #wow #BeardedTit #fluffy #snow #snowball #cute

This striped possum lives at the @theomahazoo. They are known to be shy and solitary, venturing out at night to munch on flowers, fruits, beetle larvae and pollen. This possum may look cute, but don’t get in the way at feeding time. While on the hunt for food, they move rapidly through the canopy jumping from tree to tree, accomplishing long-distance jumps with precision. When they stop to eat, they make a lot of noise, rustling through leaves and causing debris to fall to the forest floor all while scratching, snorting, slurping and chewing loudly. They are native to Australia and New Guinea including some nearby islands. Compared to other marsupials, striped possums have the biggest brain relative to their body weight. This species possesses a foul pungent odor, which is thought to be a mechanism to ward off predators, though the purpose is not confirmed. Although listed as least concern on the IUCN species list, human destruction of rainforests impacts this species greatly as they need large trees with hollows for their den sites. #pollinatormonday
