So this guy obviously isn’t an Aussie ... but I thought I’d share the image regardless. This is a Chinese Cobra (Naja atra) that we encountered crossing a track in Cuc Phuong National Park, Vietnam. Cobra’s are closely related to our Venomous snakes here in Australia as they all fall under the family Elapid.

***Our Willowbrook Patient of the Week*** . Virginia opossums have a tough time of our winters. With exposed skin on their tails and ears, they often are admitted with cases of frostbite. In the case of this little one, it is quite severe on his tail and caused much of it to fall off! This very dark-furred opossum found refuge in our shed here at Willowbrook and was rescued last week. Instead of the possible possum response of playing dead when cornered, this brave marsupial tried to scare us off with loud growls and has not been an easy patient! . The historical range of Virginia opossums hasn’t always included northern Illinois, but they have expanded north due to their adaptable nature and our hospitable habitat. As omnivores, they find an abundance of food sources in our backyards, parks and forest preserves. They also eat thousands of ticks, so they are a handy neighbor to have. . While their tails do help them to balance and collect nesting material, they do not hang from them as often depicted. The goal is release for this one after we are sure he recovers. In our area, there are likely lots of short-tailed opossums roaming about! . #patientoftheweek #virginiaopossum

After being in Romania for just over a month, working with the wonderful ACDB team to track and trap Eurasian lynx, we woke up yesterday morning to find a beautiful adult male in one of the traps. He will spend a month in quarantine before being translocated and released in Slovenia. The team has put in 2 years of incredible hard work and I feel so privileged to be a part of it 🐈 at Romania

Meet Shirlee, a two-year-old rare yellow-colored or “xanthic” Blanding’s turtle. She’s a perfect example of how it takes a village to help save the state-endangered Blanding’s turtle. . @dupageforest District ecologist Dan Thompson recently transferred Shirlee from Peggy Notebaert @naturemuseum to a Blanding’s turtle exhibit at @willcoforests Isle a la Cache Museum in Romeoville to be an ambassador for @dupageforest’s Blanding’s turtle head-start program. . Shirlee’s unusual coloring makes her a poor candidate for release into the wild because she would be an easy target for predators and poachers. . In the program’s 23 years, there have only been 9 Blanding’s turtles born with this genetic condition, and only three survived more than a year, Thompson said. . Thanks to help from our partners like @naturemuseum and @willcoforests, we’ve been able to release 3,000 Blanding’s turtles into the wild since 1996. .

She trotted along eating branches here and there while on the way to catch up with hubby. Not very often do i see such elusive creatures as these. I am very greatful to have been able to experience the great outdoors of #utah !

"Walk the Line" That Johnny Cash song was going through my head all that day. As I was capturing this, hunters no more than 100ft away from me were trying to shoot to kill these elk! It was so horrible. Literally watching someone try to kill a living thing with wants and desires right infront of me and there wasnt much I could do, I know they were in the right as far as the law is concerned, but that doesn't mean I have to like it! #hunterssuck Gear: Canon EOS 6D ii Canon 70-300mm is usm ii #wildlife_shots #wildlifeaddicts #wildlifeig #national_park_photography #ntc_natwild #wildlifepictures #ourwildlifedays #wildlifeconservation #wildlifephotographic #animalelite #wildlifeplanet #wildography #wildlifepics #wildlifeonearth #animalfanatics #splended_animals #exclusive_wildlife #animal_sultans #wms_animals #animal_fanatics #ig_discover_wildlife #shots_of_animals #wildlifecentral #elegantanimals #global_nature_wildlife #animal_supershots #igswildlife #live_love_wildlife #fifyshades_of_nature at Utah
