Southern Right Whale (Eubalaena australis)

Southern right whales are distinguished by the white/grey growths on their head, known as callosities. The callosities themselves are grey; the white appearance is due to large colonies of whale lice, barnacles and parasitic worms which reside on them. Like all baleen whales, right whales have two blowholes. Their jaws are highly curved to allow some 250 baleen plates to hang down from either side of the top jaw like a giant curtain. The plates are up to two metres long and trap some two tonnes of krill and other small crustaceans a day. The Southern Right Whale inhabits the southern and sub-antarctic oceans except during the winter breeding season in Antarctica. During this breeding season the whales migrate to warmer temperate waters around the southern parts of Africa, South America and Australia.

Pygmy Three-Toed Sloth:
Scientific Name:
(Bradypus pygmaeus)
Distribution: Panama, Central America.
Habitat: Dense Rainforest.
Diet: Herbivore.
Conservation Status: Critically Endangered.
Population: 79.

The pygmy three-toed sloth, also known as the monk sloth or dwarf sloth, is a sloth endemic to Isla Escudo de Veraguas, a small island off the coast of Panama. The species was first described by Robert P. Anderson of the University of Kansas and Charles O. Handley Jr., of the Smithsonian Institution in 2001. The pygmy three-toed sloth is significantly smaller than the other three members of its genus, but otherwise resembles the brown-throated three-toed sloth. This sloth, like other sloths, is arboreal (tree-living) and feeds on leaves. It is symbiotically associated with green algae, that can provide it with a camouflage. Details of mating behavior and reproduction have not been documented. The pygmy three-toed sloth is found exclusively in the red mangroves of Isla Escudos de Veraguas. A 2012 census of pygmy three-toed sloths estimated the total population at 79. The IUCN lists the pygmy three-toed sloth as critically endangered and they are listed on the world's 100 most threatened species. The pygmy three-toed sloth is unique in that it is found exclusively in the red mangroves of Isla Escudos de Veraguas; it is confined to a small area of approximately 4.3 square kilometres (1.7 sq mi). A 2012 census of pygmy three-toed sloths estimated the total population at 79 – of which 70 occurred on mangroves and 9 in the surroundings. Threats to the sloth's survival include timber harvesting and human settlement, that might lead to habitat degradation. Studies in 2010 and 2013 suggested a recent population bottleneck and decline in genetic variability. #sloth #pygmythreetoedsloth #internationalslothday #endangeredspecies #endangeredanimals #wildlife #conservation #wildlifeconservation #deforestation #savethepygmythreetoedsloth

What goes into an ouplanting? Swipe⬅️
🚩- Strategically decide which plants should go where (flag colors represent different plants)
.. 🥄- Dig holes at each flag (# in a cluster is determined by plant type)
.. 🌱- Plant the plants (raised in our nursery)
.. 💧- Water them
.. 🌿- Ongoing monitoring, weeding and watering to help the plants flourish!

I went out to check the horses. They were all healthy and thoroughly enjoying the plentiful fall stockpile, but it's always amusing to me to see how some of our ponies keep themselves free of mud and dust while others appear to enjoy it! #quarterhorse #ranchhorses #winterbreak #winterpasture #remuda 📷: @melzingaphoto

"Good morning." This little one was curious to hear me sweeping as I was cleaning his housing area. I'm so lucky to have this chance to work with some very passionate and dedicated people at @vietnamwildlife who are devoted to caring for and protecting endangered animals. 🤗 Help to support them and their mission by spreading awareness about the fate of Vietnam's vulnerable wildlife population and donating!
Currently obsessed with frozen Greek yoghurt! Tell me what food are you craving right now :)?⠀
Also, thank you for all the compliments on my dress but as you can see it is actually a tunique 🙃 @newlookfashion
