    A picture-perfect Abert’s squirrel or tassel-eared squirrel, at Liberty Wildlife. Once he had his nut, he sat up and posed like a pro! This squirrel was being temporarily cared for by @libertywildlifeaz, a beautiful wildlife rehab facility on the outskirts of Phoenix, AZ. Their mission to nurture wildlife helps save thousands of Arizona animal residents like this one each and every year. #squirrel #aberts #tasseleared #cute #Arizona #PhotoArk #savetogether

    A cactus ferruginous pygmy owl pivots to look at the camera. The tiny owl species is a desert specialist, thriving in some of the hottest and most arid conditions on Earth. He even makes his home in cactus! This little one was temporarily being cared for @wildatheartraptors, a raptor center on the edge of Scottsdale, Arizona. They specialize in rescuing, rehabbing and releasing the injured and orphaned raptors of the Desert Southwest, including many small owls like this one. The goal is to see them flying free once they're healthy again. #owl #pygmy #wideeyes #cactus #nocturnal #wildatheart #PhotoArk #savetogether

    This painted tree frog made itself at home on my camera during a photoshoot at Reserva Otokiki in the Esmeraldas Province in Ecuador. We often don’t think about it, but frogs like this one play a crucial role in helping us to measure the health of the environment. Frogs have very porous skin, making them extra sensitive to the health of both land and water. Declines in frog populations tell us that despite living on earth for millions of years, many are unable to handle current stressors, and the earth needs help combating things like pollution and climate change. Beyond being our lens into the health of the planet, frogs are also hard at work transferring energy from invertebrates to predators higher up the food chain, and help to control pests and provide medicines, which protect us from the spread of potentially deadly diseases.This photo was taken with a @nikonusa D4. #frog #paintedfrog #bioindicator #treefrog #camera #PhotoArk #savetogether

    This speckled beauty is an Atlantic mudskipper. Mudskippers are a type of fish that belong to the goby family. Unlike other fish, this species is able to survive on solid ground during low tide. If underwater, they use their gills to absorb dissolved oxygen as most fishes do. But before they get ready to go ashore, they enlarge their gill chambers and fill them with water. Once on land, they rely on these chambers to supply their blood with oxygen! Alternatively, they can also breathe through their skin, which contains a network of blood capillaries. Found in tropical and subtropical waters, mudskippers like to rest on roots, rocks, and other objects above the surface of the water. They use their modified pectoral fins, which vaguely resemble hands, to move across muddy surfaces. While threatened with habitat destruction, the Atlantic mudskipper’s population currently appears stable.

    This adorable critter is a juvenile common brushtail possum. This species of possum is probably the best known of the possums in Sydney, Australia because it has adapted to urban living and often comes into contact with people. In urban settings, this species will eat almost anything, but in less developed areas, these possums traditionally consume leaves, blossoms, and fruits. As a nocturnal species, the common brushtail possum spends its days tucked away in a hollow log, branch, tree trunk, or sometimes, even inside house roofs. While this is a protected, native species in Australia, the possum is considered a pest in New Zealand, where it was introduced for the fur trade in the 1830s.

    This creature, with a seemingly infinite number of legs, is a house centipede @melbournemuseum. Young centipedes have just four pairs of legs when they hatch, and gain new pairs with each molting as they continue to grow. As adults, this species has 15 pairs of long, sprawling legs. Originating in the Mediterranean region, the species has spread to other parts of the world, where it can live in human homes and operate as a nocturnal hunter. While they use their antennae to locate their prey, the centipede relies on its mandibles and legs to hold captured prey in place, which allows them to deal with several small insects at the same time. The greatest likelihood of you encountering this species is in spring, when the centipedes emerge because the weather gets warmer, and in the fall, when cooler weather forces them to find shelter in human habitats. #centipede #housecentipede #legs #hunter #nocturnal #PhotoArk #savetogether

    Say hello to Kong, a red-knobbed hornbill that calls @staugalligatorfarm home. In the wild, this species can be found on the Indonesian islands of Sulawesi, Lembeh, Togian, and Butung. Hornbills like Kong play an important role in their native forests as seed dispersers, regurgitating larger seeds and passing smaller seeds through their feces. By spreading these seeds across the landscape, the birds are helping to replant areas that serve as vital habitat to many species. While red-knobbed hornbills are not an endangered species and are common throughout their range, other species of hornbills are not so fortunate - at least four species are currently listed as endangered. Today, the biggest threat to this hornbill is logging, which results in loss of habitat. Excessive logging removes the required large trees with naturally occurring cavities that these birds rely on for food and shelter. Researchers will continue to study red-knobbed hornbill populations in order to determine the impact of activities such as logging on the species’ numbers over time. #hornbill #redknobbed #colorful #gardener #kong #replant #PhotoArk #savetogether

    This nervous looking fellow is a ground cuscus that I photographed @zooplzen. It is endemic to New Guinea and the Aru Islands, and resides within both forests and scrubland. This species is unusual in that it spends much of its time on the ground, even though it has adaptations like opposable thumbs on the hind feet, and a prehensile tail that allow for moving easily between trees and feeding from a suspended position. Despite these physical attributes, the ground cuscus prefers to nest in burrows on the ground, making the species particularly vulnerable to hunting with dogs.​ Traditionally, this species has been hunted for meat, medicinal purposes, and for the pet trade. While extensive hunting has led to the ground cuscus disappearing from the landscape in some areas, the species remains widespread and abundant, capable of adapting to a variety of habitats. #cuscus #groundcuscus #nervous #wideeyes #PhotoArk #savetogether

    This beauty is a black sea nettle @montereybayaquarium. This jelly may not look giant in this photo, but don’t be fooled - its distinctive purple bell can reach over three feet in diameter, its lacy, pink arms can reach nearly 20 feet in length, and its stinging tentacles can reach over 25 feet long. Despite its massive size, the black sea nettle is a rather mysterious creature, with much about its behavior, distribution, and life cycle still unknown to scientists. In 1989 this species appeared in droves along the San Diego shoreline, then disappeared for nearly a decade before reappearing in 1999, and again in 2010. Increased numbers of sea nettles, appearing in instances like these, may be an indication that human activities have changed the condition of the ocean. Increased organic material means more nutrients, and more nutrients, plus fertilizer run-off from farms, enrich the plankton, providing more food for jellies, allowing them to increase in number. #seanettle #giantjelly #nationalseajelliesday #pretty #delicate #PhotoArk #savetogether

    Not a fan of termites? Then this numbat at Healesville Sanctuary (@zoosvictoria) is your new best friend! An endangered marsupial from Australia, the numbat eats termites exclusively, consuming up to 20,000 in a single day. This mass consumption of termites actually provides the numbat with enough water that they do not need to drink - their feeding habits alone keep them hydrated. This species lives in Eucalypt woodlands, where old and fallen trees provide hollow logs for shelter and foraging opportunities. Trees in the forest provide some protection from predators, but since these marsupials are active during the day, they are at risk of being snatched by birds of prey, snakes, and goannas (carnivorous reptiles). Numbats have evolved alongside these predators in Australia, making it easier to escape from them, but the same cannot be said for introduced predators like foxes and cats. Because of habitat loss and the heightened risk of predation, less than 1,000 numbats remain in the wild today. Remember, you can help protect wildlife and keep your pets happy and healthy by keeping domestic pets like cats indoors. #worldnumbatday #safecatsafewildlife #endangeredspecies #numbat #marsupial #stripes #Australia #PhotoArk #savetogether

    Happy Halloween from this sixteen-day-old baby aye-aye @denverzoo! Aye ayes are just one of the many species of lemur that call the island of Madagascar home. Due to their looks, startling screams, and nocturnal behavior, the aye aye has become the center of many myths on the island, with locals upholding the belief that an encounter with this species will bring great misfortune, and possibly even death. Because of the taboo that surrounds this primate, some Malagasy will try to capture and kill any aye ayes that are spotted in a village or nearby field. With increased education and ecotourism to Madagascar, there is hope that perceptions of this unique lemur will begin to change, with locals seeing the aye aye as a treasure, rather than a threat. #Halloween #trickortreat #ayeaye #lemur #primate #ghost #PhotoArk #savetogether
