PLEASE OBSERVE OR PHOTOGRAPH PUFFERFISH ONLY FROM A RESPECTFUL DISTANCE - UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCE SHOULD YOU STRESS THEM OUT PURPOSEFULLY TO MAKE THEM PUFF UP FOR YOUR AMUSEMENT OR A PHOTO OPPORTUNITY. 🐡🐡🐡 Please keep reading if you'd like to understand why 🐡🐡🐡 Pufferfish have a peculiar defence mechanism to scare off predators: they swallow a lot of water, filling up their stomach, and they become a round ball. In less than 15 seconds they can increase their size about 3 times and once they are puffed up, they look much more intimidating and would be hard for a predator to swallow them. Unfortunately, this can be harmful for puffers and even lead to death. But why? As you can imagine, gulping lots of water stretches out significantly the fish’s stomach as well as its skin. They need some powerful buccal contractions to pull in that much water, and then some very strong oesophageal muscles to hold it in. This is exhausting for the fish. Additionally, swimming becomes impossible for puffers when they’re blown up and they will basically drift along with the current until they return to normal size. Moreover, all other biological activities come to a standstill while the animal is puffed-up (no eating, no mating...). It takes puffers several hours to return to their normal size and metabolic level (studies have shown that it takes an average of 6 hours) and due to the exhaustion of the inflate/deflate process, they can't puff-up again immediately if needed, becoming vulnerable targets for predators (like in a human athletics race, once the sprint is finished, athletes need some time to recover before being able to perform to the same level again). For all these reasons, please respect puffers and only watch/photograph them from a distance where the fish feels comfortable. .

Mallard Mix: Another shot of the mallard hybrid I posted a few days ago. Someone mentioned on the last post that perhaps it's a mallard/domestic duck hybrid... maybe something like a Swedish duck... rather than a mallard/goose hybrid like I had originally thought... . . . . . #1natureshot #instagood #kings_birds #birds_4you #birds_brilliance #birds_captures #birds_matter #birds_of_ig #birds_of_instagram #birdshots #birdsofinsta #birdsonearth #birdsphotography #birdsplanet #exclusive_wildlife #exclusivewildlife #explore_wildlife #greengrammers #jewelsofnature #marvelouz_animals #naturegrampixels #naturephotoportal #nb_nature_brilliance #planet_birds #total_birds #your_best_birds #nuts_about_birds #mallardduck #ducksofinstagram #animalsphotography at Liberty Park

Good morning all! As of today no more series of three. I thought it was time for a change. I also noticed that too many people copied this🤭 And since I like to be a bit different and special, I quit doing it😂 Today a photo that I made half a year ago. I have ordered this photo on plexiglass for my living room. I can not wait🤪 I love this picture because it shows the warmth that I experience when I am in the forest😍 It feels very special to hang my own work in our living room. Are you going to do something nice today? I wish you a nice Sunday. . . . #natureaddict #gottalove_a_ #naturephoto #awesome_earthpix #canonphotography #greengrammers #nature_brilliance #natureaddict #naturediversity #awesomeearth #main_vision #InstaNatureFriends_ #nature_wizards #canonphotographer #ourplanetdaily #landscape_captures #canonrebel #allnatureshots #EarthVisuals #canoneos #canonphotos #instanaturelover #earth_deluxe #nature_prefection #welivetoexplore #canonuk #tree_perfection #tree_magic #tree_brilliance #gok_eys at Capelle aan den IJssel

The Sri Lankan Elephant (Elephas maximus maximus) is one of the three recognized subspecies of the Asian Elephant. The Sri Lankan elephant is currently in conflict with human’s due to habitat loss. Only a selected few males of the species have tusks and he is a majestic animal to see in the wild. #elephants #asianelephant #elephantjunglesantuary #santuaryasia #elephantsofinstagram #elephantlove #elephantlovers #elephantparade #elephanta #elephantspage #elephantfamily #elephantsareawsm #elephantvoices #elephant #elefant #elefanten #safariphotography #safaritour #nikonasia #asiananimals #mammals #mammalsphotography #rainforest #natureskingdom #greengrammers
