Wild ones... In less than a month these cubs will be disregarded and driven away by their mother as she enters the sun zone and another cycle repeats. She’s taught them all she can about the world up to this point; it’s now their time to depart and make an independent experience without the potential threat of male bears in the vicinity.
UM LUGAR. "O oceano Pacífico é o maior oceano da Terra, situado entre a América, a leste, a Ásia e a Austrália, a oeste, e a Antártida, ao sul. Com 180 milhões de km² de área superficial, o Pacífico cobre quase um terço da superfície do planeta e corresponde a quase metade da superfície e do volume dos oceanos. Movendo-se um globo terrestre de forma adequada é possível visualizar-se um hemisfério inteiro do planeta coberto apenas por água, ficando todos os continentes no hemisfério oposto, ocultos à visão em tal posição"

Encountering an army ant swarms is the key to finding some of the rarer birds in the Neotropical Rainforest. This bird was a common species in Panama but I'm posting it because I couldn't find the rare ones. I wish there were army ants in the Old World too.
TEET HAPPINESS. A youngster Golden Snub-nosed Monkey, Rhinopithecus roxellana, in Shaanxi, China. Another of China’s wildlife comeback species, with rapidly increasing numbers, ever since they were A. Designated as a Strictly protected species, and B. All Hunting was banned all across China and C. All rifles were collected across the country. Radical wildlife comeback since. Any lessons to learn from that in other countries maybe? Of course there is hunting in China. In designated areas and by peoples and certain ethnics in certain areas. But in general, hunting is no more allowed in the country. It is the opposite policy compared to my country Sweden, where for some strange reason hunting is allowed everywhere, except in some extremely limited, few areas. We even have hunting in almost all our nature reserves and most National Parks!!! So shall a hobby by a few % of the population be allowed to totally and completely affect the wildlife happiness of more than 90% of the people who don’t hunt?
