The roe deer is the world's only hoofed animal to have a "delayed implantation". This means the fertilized eggs of the female only begin to develop during the winter, thereby allowing her fawns to be born in better weather with more abundant food.
The biology of these little deer is extremely interesting! An insight into natural evolutionary adaptation over the centuries and millenia!

🚘VOCÊ SABIA QUE O ATROPELAMENTO É A PRINCIPAL CAUSA DE MORTE DOS ANIMAIS SILVESTRES❓
. Estima-se que a cada segundo mais de 15 animais morrem nas estradas brasileiras, sendo 457 milhões de mortes por ano e 1,3 milhão animais atropelados por dia.
. 💥QUAIS OS IMPACTOS DO ATROPELAMENTO DE ANIMAIS❓.
Além de ser um risco á biodiversidade, atropelar animais de grande porte também pode gerar acidentes, colocando em perigo a vida de pessoas.
. 🤔POR QUE O NÚMERO DE ACIDENTES É TÃO EXPRESSIVO❓.
. Além do descaso com a vida silvestre, muitos atropelamentos ocorrem devido á desatenção dos motoristas ou pelo excesso de velocidade com que dirigem, pois quanto maior a velocidade, menor será o tempo de resposta para o motorista desviar do animal ao avista-lo.
. 🍊POR QUE OS ANIMAIS ATRAVESSAM ESSAS VIAS ❓
Por estarem no meio do habitat silvestre, os animais precisam atravessar as rodovias em busca de água, comida, abrigo ou parceiro para reprodução. A presença de árvores frutíferas plantadas próximas as estradas e comidas que caem dos.
Great Cormorant doing water skiing.
Didn't know about the eye colour before. 💙
Cormorant fishing is practised in China, Japan, and elsewhere around the globe.
Fishermen tie a line around the throats of cormorants,
tight enough to prevent swallowing the larger fish they catch,
and deploy them from small boats.
The cormorants catch fish without being able to fully swallow them,
and the fishermen are able to retrieve the fish simply by forcing open the cormorants' mouths, apparently engaging the regurgitation reflex.
This is purely a wild hippo living freely in the wild. The story behind this hippo is...she was premature and got drifted away in a flood and lost her mother. A family found her with her umbilical cord still attached, they bottle fed her she stuck around their house but is still free, She has a soft spot for humans she goes and hangs out with the wild hippos then at night she comes back and sleeps on the porch of the family who saved her. Basically shes the only hippo in the world that comes this close to humans without killing them.
1. Ungainly as it is, the hippopotamus is the world's deadliest large land mammal, killing an estimated 500 people per year in Africa. Hippos are aggressive creatures, and they have razor sharp teeth.And you would not want to get stuck under one; at up to 2,750kg they can crush a human to death.
2. They secrete an oily red substance that acts as a moisturiser, sunblock and protects them from germs. This also makes them look like they are sweating blood.
3. Hippos can close their nostrils and ears to prevent water from entering. This is why hippo calves can suckle on land or underwater.
4. The hippo’s closest living relatives are whales and porpoises!
I was so excited to get to photograph these guys! Marmots have been on my list for awhile so on the way to the falls I put out a call for them to show and show they did! They’re such sweet creatures.
They symbolize success by creating boundaries, speaking their truth, and supporting each other in group families.
There are 14 currently recognized species of marmots and many of them live in the Alpines.
Just like the marmot tunnels, we have many avenues of success that are available to us. You can create options in your life and know that things can change. Be ready, resilient, and resourceful and like marmot be ready to pop out of any entrance.
