    At six inches long and weighing less than half a pound, the Egyptian fruit bat is quite small; but you wouldn’t know that by looking at their wingspan, which reaches nearly two feet! These bats create large colonies, often with more than 1,000 members, and are believed to be the most vocal of all bat species, emitting high-pitched squeals and clicks when searching for food.

    A smart survival strategy, the bright color of this common tiger glassywing butterfly @butterflypavilion warns predators of its poisonous properties. Other species of insect often mimic these color patterns even though they may not be toxic, giving them predator protection too.

    To combat the decline of endangered Mexican gray wolves like this one @endangeredwolfcenter, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service created the Wolf Recovery Plan, which aims to restore this species to its native southwest territory. Just a few months ago, @abqbiopark , a partner in the recovery program, announced the birth of seven Mexican gray wolf pups. The BioPark has welcomed 79 Mexican wolf pups since 1983, helping to support the ongoing genetic health of wild wolves.  #wolf #gray #mexicanwolf #canis #pups #endangered #PhotoArk #savetogether

    Baboon spiders, like the Mozambique baboon tarantula @oneabq, are a sub-family of tarantula that includes more than forty different species. Their common name comes from their hairy appearance and from the pads of the spider’s “feet” which closely resemble the color and texture of a baboon’s finger. #tarantula #baboon #spider #hairy #PhotoArk #savetogether

    Native to southwestern Mexico and Central America, spot-breasted orioles like this female spend most of their time in the trees, foraging in branches and foliage. They are often spotted visiting flowers, and it is believed these birds use their bills to break off long blossoms in order to access nectar at the base.

    In 2017, I travelled all the way to @moscow_zoo_official to get one of the most extraordinary creatures in the Photo Ark; the long-eared jerboa. Compared to its small size, this species has the biggest ears I’d ever seen on a mammal, which biologists believe are used not only to detect the insects it feeds on, but to help it regulate body heat in its desert habitat as well. #jerboa #longeared #bigears #rodent #cute #PhotoArk #savetogether

    Though the fireback crayfish is not currently listed as an endangered species, @americanfisheries considers it endangered due to its restricted range, which is limited to a small region in northwest Florida. In the wild, this crayfish is found in saturated soils along the banks of creeks where it can easily burrow and conceal itself amongst roots.

    Chosen as the emblem of the United States because of its longevity, strength and majestic features, the bald eagle is the only species of sea eagle endemic to North America. In the late 20th century, this raptor was on the brink of extinction in the U.S., but populations have since recovered, and the species was removed from the U.S. government's list of endangered and threatened species in 1995 and 2007, respectively.

    Nino is a marsh mongoose I photographed at Animal’s World-Parc Assango in Gabon. This one-year-old male was brought to the refuge as a tiny furry baby and now lives freely around the owner’s forested property and garden. These animals are excellent swimmers, diving for up to 15 seconds using their webbed feet to paddle.

    Skimmer dragonflies and their relatives form the largest dragonfly family in the world, which consists of over 1,000 species. Members of the genus Sympetrum, like this beauty, are called darters and are found throughout most of the world, except Australia.

    This cute critter is an orange-spined hairy dwarf porcupine @institutovidalivre. Found throughout parts of South America, this species occurs in a wide range of habitats including tropical savannahs, wetlands, and rainforests. They are most active at night, and are sometimes spotted near human communities. #porcupine #orange #spiky #cute #dwarf #PhotoArk #savetogether

    Did you know that today’s fancy and colorful breeds of goldfish started out as a drab form of carp in China? More than 2,000 years of domestication and breeding had yielded the popular fish of today, ranging in colors from bright orange to this blue butterfly moor I photographed @hkoceanpark. Seen as a symbol of luck and fortune, they are wildly popular as pets, but they are also spotted in natural areas, often as a result of being released into the wild when they are no longer wanted. This action can harm native fish and amphibian populations. You can help to protect local wildlife by putting unwanted goldfish up for adoption, rather than releasing them into local waterways. #goldfish #butterflymoor #fish #PhotoArk #savetogether
