The hammer-headed bat (Hypsignathus monstrosus), also known as hammer-headed fruit bat and big-lipped bat, is a megabat widely distributed in equatorial Africa. This large bat is found in riverine forests, mangroves, swamps, and palm forests at elevations less than 1,800 metres (5,900 ft).As of 2016, it is evaluated as a least-concern species by the IUCN—its lowest conservation priority. It meets the criteria for this classification because it has a wide geographic range; its population is presumably large; and it is not thought to be experiencing rapid population decline BINOMIAL NOMENCLATURE Hypsignathus monstrosus H. Allen, 1861 SCIENTIFIC CLASSIFICATION Kingdom:Animalia Phylum:Chordata Class:Mammalia Order:Chiroptera Family:Pteropodidae Genus:Hypsignathus Species:H. monstrosus ______________________________ P H O T O : @thewcs ______________________________ PLEASE FOLLOW @bio_sapiens TO SUPPORT US IN SAVING BIODIVERSITY Tag a #Nature lover Please use hashtag #biosapiens #wildlife #facts #biodiversity #italy #photooftheday #bevegan #animalovers #animals #Americas #africanimals #birdphotography #wildlifephotography #environment #photography #animalplanet #animals_magic #bbcearth #tree #Australia #SouthAmerica #forest #earth #noplanetb #Africa #india #germany #Japan #bat

G R E A T S T R E N G T H الماء ضروري لكل الكائنات الحية للبقاء على قيد الحياة ‪..‬ وهو مهم للغاية لدرجة أنه ممكن ان يصبح نقطه ضعفنا يقولون .. لمعرفه أعظم نقاط قوتك .. يجب عليك أولاً التغلب على اقوى نقاط ضعفك حيوان الزراف أكبر نقطه ضعف لديه عندما يبدأ في شرب الماء .. لأن عليه فتح أرجله الأمامية لدرجه كبيره وخفض رأسه إلى سطح الماء .. وهنا عندما يصبح عرضة للحيوانات المفترسة الأخرى من ناحية أخرى .. من أعظم قوه الزراف أنهم يمكن أن يمضوا فترات طويله بدون شرب الماء وهم يستطيعون ذلك حتى أكثر من الجمل .. فهم يشربون الماء مرة واحدة فقط كل بضعة أيام تحصل الزراف على معظم كمية المياه التي تتناولها من المصادر النباتية .. أوراق الأكاسيا هي مصدر الغذاء النباتي الرئيسي للزرافات لذا .. في هذه الصورة ، الزرافة - التي يمكن أن يكون لها رقبه يبلغ طولها سبعة أقدام تقريبًا - معرضة جدًا للحيوانات المفترسة عندما تشرب الماء لذا يجب عليها أن ترفع رأسها بسرعة كبيره بين الحينه والاخرى لتتأكد من عدم وجود حيوانات مفترسه حولها .. وهذا هو سبب خروج بعض الماء من فمها بهذه الطريقه Water is an essential for every living organisms to survive, its so important to the point it become our weakness! because without water we will collapse They say “ To realize your greatest strengths, you must first overcome your greatest weaknesses “ Giraffes greater weakness is when they start drinking water! because they have to spread their front legs and lower their head to the water's surface! and this is when they become vulnerable to other predators! Their greatest strength in another hand is that they can go longer periods of time without drinking water than a camel, they only drink water once every few days. Giraffes get most of their water intake from plant sources .. Acacia leaves are the main plant food source for giraffes So, in this picture the giraffe - which can have necks nearly seven foot long - is very vulnerable to predators when she is drinking water so she must get her head up quickly to see what's going on! and this is why some of the water splashes out of her mouth! Unfortunately for the oxpecker birds it can mean occasionally getting soaked in drool

The Curculionidae are the family of the "true" weevils (or "snout beetles"). They are one of the largest animal families, with 6,800 genera and 83,000 species described worldwide.They include the bark beetles as the subfamily Scolytinae, which are modified in shape in accordance with their wood-boring lifestyle. They do not much resemble other weevils, so they were traditionally considered a distinct family, Scolytidae. The family also includes the ambrosia beetles, of which the present-day subfamily Platypodinae was formerly considered the distinct family Platypodidae.Weevils are almost entirely plant feeders, and most species are associated with a narrow range of hosts, in many cases only living on a single species. With so many species to classify and over 400 genera, the taxonomy of this family is quite complicated, and authors disagree on the number and placement of various subfamilies, tribes, and subtribes BINOMIAL NOMENCLATURE Curculionidae Latreille, 1802 SCIENTIFIC CLASSIFICATION Kingdom:Animalia Phylum:Arthropoda Class:Insecta Order:Coleoptera Suborder:Polyphaga Infraorder:Cuculiformia Superfamily:Curculionoidea Family:Curculionidae ___________________________________________ P H O T O : @sagaoptics ___________________________________________ PLEASE FOLLOW @bio_sapiens TO SUPPORT US IN SAVING BIODIVERSITY Tag a #Insect lover Please use hashtag #biosapiens #wildlife #facts #biodiversity #italy #photooftheday #bevegan #animalovers #animals #Americas #africanimals #birdphotography #wildlifephotography #environment #photography #animalplanet #animals_magic #bbcearth #tree #Australia #SouthAmerica #forest #earth #noplanetb #Africa #india #germany #Japan #ants

Hi guys, Last weekend Cape Nature brought us a Spotted Thick-Knee. He was found by a caring member of the public after he was attacked by a dog. They took it to the vet and it was discovered that his right leg was broken. Cape nature brought the bird to us. Since the arrival we have been carefully feeding it everyday. We are happy to report that he is doing better and better each day and he is eating more and more. We really hope he will make a full recovery and eventually be released into the wild, were he belongs ❤️ ➡️If you want to sponsor an animal food during lockdown, here is the special link : https://tenikwa.co.za/save-wildlife-rehabilitation-wishlist/ ➡️ Remember every donation, no matter how small will help ensure that our animals get what they need and when our gates open again, we can all enjoy the wonder of Tenikwa together ❤️ #tenikwa #rehabilitationcentre #rehabilitation #rehab #awareness #animals #animal #wildlife #wild #southafricanwildlife #nature #southafrica #africanimals #tourism #freedom #release #plettenbergbay #wildliferehabilitation #thecrags #gardenroute #plett #plettisafeeling #volunteersa #volunteering #thickknee #bird #birding

A zebras tale from Pilanesberg.... On the 15th December 2019 we were driving through hippo loop as the sun was setting. It had been a scorcher of a day and now we could open the windows and let the evenings cooler air rush against our faces. As we drove I looked across to the mountains on the north side. There I saw zebra walking up the still sun drenched slope heading higher and higher. This was new behavior for me, why where they climbing as the day was ending?Perhaps the higher ground provides some security during the night? Perhaps the zebra knew something we didn’t? . 🌾 The next morning bright and early at the foot of the mountain a leopard was spotted at the base of a dead tree. Within the dried and weathered branches a zebra hung. . 🐾 There were cars around hippo loop the previous night and cars and rangers traveling up and down Tshwene. We didn’t notice any leopards sightings but I think maybe the zebra did. . 🌿 Sighting in South Africa’s Pilanesberg National Park #sanparks #wu_africa #excellent_nature #earthcapture #bestnatureshot #photo_pond #pilanesberg_ #meetsouthafrica #nature_org #nature_brilliance #nature_sultans #bns_animals #africanimals #africanature #africanamazing #african_portraits #thisissouthafrica #igs_africa #lions #igscglobal #pclimd #bbcearth #live_love_wildlife #nikontop #wildgeography #africageophoto #bbcwildlifepotd #exploringourglobe #naturettl

Young lion cub hugging its mother Okavango delta, Botswana . . Early in the morning, we met two beautiful male lions and a female. After a while, one male and a female moved away in the grass, along a path that I finally followed. What a surprised when I found the rest of the pride, with cubs! This young lion cub was playing with another one, and then came by its mother seeking for comfort. #wild #life #wildlife #animalsofinstagram #naturephotography #earthfocus #wildlifephotography #wildlifeaddicts #africa #bigcat #africanamazing #wildlifeplanet #animalonplanet #adventure #bigcatswildlife #nature #africanimals #bigcatsconservation #wildonplanet #lion #cat #wildlifeowners #discovery #canonfrance #wildliveplanet #animallovers #naturelovers #ourplanetdaily #wildplanet

Just a trunk!🐘 While driving through the Etosha National Park we suddenly found ourselves facing a large group of elephants. Even though they walked the opposite direction of where we planned to head, we decided to follow them. After quite a while we ended up at a water hole which was far off the main roads. All alone with the elephants we stopped the engine, prepped the equipment and just waited hoping they would make use of the water hole in some way. After quite a while they started to drink and eventually the youngsters even went for a thorough bath! They splashed around, hosed down each other, jumped around, almost like kids in a swimming pool. It was just incredible to watch! I took the chance and decided to build up this specific image in my head but it was a patient waiting game until one of the elephants actually went under water with only his trunk sticking out the water. Oh, what a moment to witness!

El Serengeti! El nombre de Serengeti proviene de la palabra “Siringet” una palabra de la lengua maa, la lengua de los masai, que significa “llanura infinita” ¡Pisar el Serengeti te despierta todos los sentidos!

meerkats, (suricata), are famous for having a guard keeping watch for dangers while the others go about their daily activities so it shouldn’t surprise us that vision is their most developed sense. they have great color vision and horizontal pupils that gives them a wide range of vision. they also have dark patches of fur around the eyes in order to cut down on the glare from the sun which is very helpful in the hot and sunny climate they live in. #animalphotography #suricata #meerkat #zoo #animalportrait #animalkingdom #animalfacts @safari_israel #cuteanimals #africananimals #telephoto #closeupphotography #zooanimals #beautifulanimals #zoophotography #photographinganimals #nikon7200 #tamron150600mm #safari #splendid_animals #africanimals #animalphotographer #africa #animallovers #interestinganimals

Video by @jamotyrrelljamotyrrell│"This leopard had had her kill robbed by a hyena, but for whatever reason, the hyena had wandered off without eating very much. The leopard took the chance to grab the kill back and tried to hoist it into a small Jackalberry tree, but a leg of the impala got snagged on a branch and the leopard had to jump back to the ground, at which point the hyena stole the kill again. The hyena then wandered off a second time, and again the leopard moved in to reclaim her meal, as quietly as possible this time. AGAIN the hyena came in to chase her off, and she had to drop the impala carcass a few metres short of a much better hoisting tree. This sequence is of the THIRD time she grabbed the kill back, making no mistake this time and rushing it up into a Weeping Boer Bean Tree, where she and her cub could feed in peace." ©️ All rights reserved. __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ Follow us: @wildlife_repost @scarynature_repost __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ __ #leopard #hoist #impala #predator #bigcat #hunter #big5 #hyena #scavenger #catsofafrica #catsofinstagram #wildlifephotography #londolozi #safariphotography #hoist #tree #escape #carnivore #motherhood #dust #africa #southafrica #panthera #capturethewild #wildestafrica #africanimals

✨ STORY TIME ✨ . When we drove along the road in the Namib Naukluft National Park I knew I wanted to have a photo of a Gemsbok (Oryx) in the vast landscape in front of this mountain range. 🐂 . We spent 3 days in the park but never really got that photo or sighting that I wanted. On our last evening, just on our way out of the park, we saw a Gemsbok walking in front of that mountain range. I took a picture (literally only one) and wasn’t really satisfied as the Gemsbok didn’t look towards us or wasn’t parallel to the mountain. So I simply just observed the gemsbok disappearing in the dry and dusty desert and I completely forgot about that photo. 🍂 . Today I looked through my Namibia photos again, not the ones I already selected and uploaded to Lightroom, but through the „rejected“ photos. And I stumbled across this one shot...🐂 . And what can I say?! I love it! It instantly brought me back to that moment. I remember that moment so well again! I remember that I was thinking “how is life even possible in this harsh environment?” and “how can simplicity be so beautiful?”. And do you know what? That’s a good photo for me, because it brings back memories and emotions! 🌞 . Also, you can’t really plan a wildlife photo! And that’s what I really love about wildlife photography. You never know what will happen and you always have to expect the unexpected! And even though it’s called WILDlife photography, this wild and unpredictable art is, for me, the most relaxing and calming thing out there. Literally my kind of meditation. 🌙 ⚫︎⚫︎⚫︎ #namibia #africa #oryx

📸 @nicole_mathesie ... It is very interesting to see the change in animal's behaviour these days. As they are not accustomed to people around anymore, some become very skittish, others become very curious. A couple of weeks ago this elephant probably would have ignored us, now he immediately came close to check us out. #elephant #southafrica #shots_of_animals #splendid_animals #krugernationalpark #endangered #natgeoyourshot #sunset #animalelite #animal_sultans #wildlifeplanet #wildlife #pictureoftheday #instacat #africanamazing #AfricaGeoPhoto #natgeo #roamtheplanet #naturephoto #wildlifephoto #capturethewild #africanimals #africansafari #naturephotography #bigcatsofinsta #animalportrait #onlyinafrica #marvelshots #marvelouz_animals
