The wingspan is up to 2 meters (6.6 ft). They hunt fish by diving from a height into the sea and pursuing their prey underwater. They can dive from a height of 30 meters (98 ft), achieving speeds of 100 kilometers per hour (62 mph) as they strike the water, enabling them to catch fish much deeper than most airborne birds. ____________________________________ Congratulations and thank you for sharing your photo!

They live in regions where there are plenty of tropical rain forests and eat fruit, bugs, leaves, flowers, nuts, and some small mammals. They spend most of their time in the trees, swinging through them in search of food and sleeping in them. They have prehensile tails which allow them to grasp tree branches with their tails in the same manner they would use their hands. They can also use their tails to carry things or as an aid in foraging. ____________________________________ Congratulations and thank you for sharing your photo! Selected by: @krasneca .

. ____________________________________ 🌎@ww_nature_knowledge🐝 📷Member Feature: @hassensm ____________________________________ ✨Impala and Oxpecker✨ The Impala is a medium-sized African antelope; female is similar to the male but does not have horns. The male's graceful lyre-shaped horns are 18 to 37 inches (46 to 94 centimeters) long. Glossy, reddish brown coat; white hair inside the ears, over each eye and on the chin, upper throat, and underparts. A narrow black line runs along the middle of the lower back to the long tail, and a vertical black stripe appears on the back of each thigh. . Oxpeckers are endemic to the savanna of Sub-Saharan Africa. The names arises from their habit of perching on large mammals (both wild and domesticated) such as cattle, zebras, impalas, hippopotamuses, or rhinoceroses, and eating ticks, small insects, botfly larvae, and other parasites. ____________________________________ Congratulations and thank you for sharing your photo!
