My kids were delighted to meet this young snapper at my parents’ place in Hammonds Plains, Nova Scotia. These turtles (and yes, they are considered freshwater turtles, not tortoises) can be expected to live for up to 100 years. With no natural predators (except for maybe the odd otter) these reptilian tanks have held a top spot on the food chain, and despite human disruptions to their life-course, snapping turtles have managed to thrive in the wild. . . . #turtle #snappingturtle #turtlesofinstafram #nature #naturephotography #naturelovers #wildlife #wildlifephotography #canon5dmarkiii #canon #color #300mm #green #photography #canada #novascotia #halifax #natgeo #natgeoyourshot #natgeowild #ontario #nature_perfection #naturecanada #bbcearth #reptile at Hammonds Plains, Nova Scotia

3 more weeks with mornings like this - can’t complain...🐘 • Zimbabwe has been incredible so far. Being in the middle of nowhere, surrounded by animals, and only having internet access for a couple of minutes a day (if that) is a long way off London life +3 months ago...but there’s no place I’d currently rather be @imire_zimbabwe 🇿🇼 at Zimbabwe

Did you know that male Polar Bears can weigh as much as 10 men? The largest Polar Bear recorded weighed around 1000kg/2209lbs! #wearewildest. . "Wildlife filmmaker Bertie Gregory has channeled a childhood obsession with wildlife into photography. Photos from this obsession earned him recognition early on in his career, including been named a National Geographic Young Explorer and the Youth Outdoor Photographer of the Year. Bertie's goal is to now find stories that get people to fall in love with the natural world and show that looking after wildlife is more than just a nice thing to do, it's crucial to all our futures.” . Sadly, according to WWF, Polar Bears are expected to decline by 30% by 2050. Climate change and melting ice is impacting their survival, they are now finding it more difficult to find food because of longer melting seasons. — 📍 #wildestcanada — 📸 @bertiegregory at Canada

The last image i posted featured the archetypal relationship between vertebrates (In that case amphibians) and invertebrates, with the predator being the larger vertebrate that hunts and eats smaller inverts. Sometimes, especially in the tropics, this relationship gets flipped on its head. A large spider is more than capable of taking on a small vertebrate, and it's not uncommon. In just over a week at Yasuni, I observed 3 instances of spiders feeding on (adult) frogs. All 3 spiders were this same species which I believe to be Ancylometes rufus (Giant fishing spiders) and the frogs consumed were a Scinax species and Engystomops petersi (as seen here). This is a particularly large species of spider that seems to tackle vertebrate prey with regularity (I've even seen one eating a medium sized snake!), but other smaller species of spider certainly will also eat vertebrates on occasion. . . . . . . . . . . . #ancylometes #natureismetal_ #natgeolatam #naturegram #animalplanet #bbcearth #fieldherping #herping #earthcapture #naturalezaviva #wildtropics #followthefrog #natureismetal #spidersofinstagram #yasuni #rainforestalliance #frogsofinstagram #froglover #wildlife_shots #ecuadorisallyouneed #rainforest #predation #natureisscary #nikonnofilter #macro_spotlight #beautiful_insects_japan #bugslife #insects_of_our_world #thewildlifebiologist

“India is a land of diverse cultures.” Throughout my childhood, I’ve read and reread this iconic statement multiple times in my history and geography textbooks. However , I experienced the truest meaning of that statement only when I started travelling 🦋.
