The species is endemic to Australia. It is the sole species in the genus Moloch. It grows up to 21 cm (8.3 in ) in total length (including tail ), with females generally larger than males.The thorny devil is covered in hard, rather sharp spines that dissuade attacks by predators by making it difficult to swallow. It also has a false head on its back. When it feels threatened by other animals, it lowers its head between its front legs, and then presents its false head. Predators that consume the thorny devil include wild birds and goannas.The popular appeal of the thorny devil is the basis of an anecdotal petty scam. American servicemen stationed in Southwest Australia decades ago (such as during World War II ) were supposedly sold the thorny fruits of a species of weeds, the so-called "double gee" , but those were called "thorny devil eggs" as a part of the scam. Thorny devils have been kept in captivity. BINOMIAL NOMENCLATURE Moloch horridus Gray, 1841 SCIENTIFIC CLASSIFICATION Kingdom:Animalia Phylum:Chordata Class:Reptilia Order:Squamata Suborder:Iguania Family:Agamidae Subfamily:Amphibolurinae Genus:Moloch Species:M. horridus ___________________________________________ P H O T O : @sabowden ___________________________________________ PLEASE FOLLOW @bio_sapiens TO SUPPORT US IN SAVING BIODIVERSITY Tag a #Reptile Lover Please use hashtag #biosapiens #wildlife #facts #biodiversity #italy #photooftheday #bevegan #animalovers #animals #Americas #africanimals #birdphotography #biosapiens #wildlifephotography #environment #photography #animalplanet #animals_magic #bbcearth #tree #Australia #SouthAmerica #forest #earth #noplanetb #Africa #india #germany #japan

I was once kissed on the lips by a giraffe, and I don't think I've ever got over it. Animals measure their trust in you, their communication with you, and their understanding of you by the energy that you send when you are in their presence. It’s not complicated. The fascinating thing is, that we ALL send messages to other species, all the time. LEAVE A 💜 IF YOU AGREE. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #animallover #energy #energyhealing #costarica #giraffesofinstagram #energydoesntlie #wellness #mediumsarethenewwellness #mediumsarethenewwellnesscoaches #animalsofinstagram #giraffe #wildlife #giraffes #safari #nature #giraffesofinstagram #zoo #wildlifephotography #giraffelove #elephant #animal #travel #love #photography #naturephotography #giraffelover #cute #giraffelife #giraffen #photooftheday

The homeowners had stepped over this Western Diamondback Rattlesnake several times before noticing it. For as common as this situation is, it rarely results in a bite. To rattlesnakes, a covered front patio is just a good place to stay out of the sun for awhile.

#repost@bbcearth The perfect warning system doesn’t exist... The rattlesnake’s rattle is made up of hollow keratin segments that loosely fit inside one another. The snake knocks these segments together, sometimes vibrating up to 90 times a second! It’s a highly effective warning sign, signalling potential predators to stay away. #bbcearth #earthunplugged #rattlesnake #snake #wildlife

---- Meet "Scylla" - Shark-ID #24 ---- A favourite among divers is the one and only "Scylla". This female great hammerhead shark has been a Bimini hammerhead since the season 2012/2013. For the following 3 seasons she quickly became a favourite of many divers at the dive site. However, her absence from Bimini during the season 2016/2017 season had everybody worried that something happened to her during her summer migrations. The relief was very big when we were able to ID her on pictures from another famous dive site in the Bahamas, i.e. Tiger Beach. Seemingly in good health, it seemed that Scylla simply preferred spending some time (3 full season ) with tiger sharks before finally returning to Bimini once more during the 2019/2020 season. It remains to be seen which at which dive site she will be this year, but we all hope to soon see her back home in Bimini. Scylla is not the biggest shark at the dive site and measures approximately 3.3 m (~ 11 ft ). However, what she lacks in size she makes up for with a very bold personality. ---- Body characteristics: Scylla is easily identified by her very distinct ventral patterning. Not only is she a very dark shark, which makes the grey areas very clear to see, but she also has a very distinct grey dent reaching into her white belly area right before the left pectoral fin. Further towards the jaws, also on the left side of her ventral patterning, one can see a grey patch that somewhat looks like the two humps of a camel. And, she has a small triangular shaped grey patch on her ventral side in the middle right behind the jaw that some divers have mentioned (with a bit of imagination ) looks like the outline of South America. Scylla has a small notch at the tip of the trailing edge of her second dorsal fin as well as a bulge in the trailing edge of her right pelvic fin. In 2013, Scylla arrived in Bimini with a severe injury on her back behind her first dorsal fin that looked like a bite and led to her nickname "Bite Back". However, this injury is completely healed by now and unless you know where to look at you will not even recognize the scar. ---- Photos: dorsal injury @tjostendorf , ventral pattern @underwatersharkplanet

Female Stonechat (Saxicola rubicola ) A heathland lover! In England Dartford warblers can be seen following and copying stonechats, it is thought that this allows them to catch smaller insects that the larger birds disturb! #scotland #coast #northeast #dunes #heathland #bird #stonechat #fauna #species #conservation #habitat #thebritishwildlife #rspb_love_nature #nature #wildlife #scottishnature #scottishwildlife #beach

What is something you are passionate about? I am passionate about our planet and all the plants and animals on it. This made me really excited to feature this book!! It also helped that one of my favorite birds (the goldfinch ) is on the cover! Earth Almanac is a collection of essays and information that offers an in-depth look at aspects of our world without reading like a scientific article. It’s broken up into the four seasons and provides a great nonfiction break! I love picking it up and reading an essay and absorbing that before I read more! Thank you to @tlcbookstours and @storeypub for the copy! . Synopsis: Noted nature writer Ted Williams invites readers along on a year-long immersion in the wild and fleeting moments of the natural world, from winter candy and spring quackers to summer’s scarlet farewell and autumn reveilles. This beautifully crafted collection of short, seasonal essays combines in-depth information with evocative descriptions of nature’s marvels and mysteries. Williams explains the weather conditions that bring out the brightest reds in autumn leaves, how hungry wolf spiders catch their prey, and why American goldfinches wait until late July or August to build their nests. In the tradition of Thoreau, Carson, and Leopold, Ted Williams’s writing stands as a testament to the delicate balance of nature’s resilience and fragility, and inspires readers to experience the natural world for themselves and to become advocates for protecting and preserving the amazing diversity and activity found there. . @storeypub #TedWilliams #EarthAlmanac #essays #nature #wildlife #tlcbooktours #nonfictionbooks #nonfiction #nonfictionreads

💚 Las Pilitas de Colimilla en Tonalá Jalisco 🇲🇽 🌱 Uno de los rincones mágicos de Jalisco, se encuentran en Tonalá casi colindando con Guadalajara, hay 5 formas de llegar a este lugar o por lo menos las que yo conozco y he utilizado, lo único que tienes que hacer es llegar a periférico, puedes bajar por Huentitán, Oblatos, Nuevo Israel(La Jalisco ), Monte Sinaí ó Colimilla. Estas aguas termales se encuentran resguardadas por la Comisión Estatal del Agua, no hay mucho turismo ya que para llegar a este lugar tienes que bajar una montaña y no es apto para todos, sin embargo me he encontrado en varias ocasiones con familias. *Algunas breves recomendaciones de mi parte y no para desanimarlos pero si para que tengan una expectativa: -Calzado adecuado, sobre todo cómodo. -Bajar despacio y con cuidado, ya que hay zonas resbalosas. -Llevar Agua exagerando, créanme no se arrepentirán de cargarla. -Respetar la naturaleza y llévate tu basura. -Si te encuentras un animal exótico es normal no los molestes. (Ellos no te molestarán ) -No permitas que se te haga noche por ningún motivo. -Por ningún motivo vayas solo. -Llevar dinero en efectivo, abajo venden agua o botanas. *ojo: el horario es mas o menos de 9AM-6PM Sobre los animales exóticos, olvidé decir, si es que si se encuentran uno, ¡huyan! 🏃🏽😅 . . . . . . #jalisco #nature #mountain #trees #landscape #photography #explore #naturelovers #adventure #wildlife #earth #hike #travel #laspilitas #outdoors #happy #animal #outside #lifestyle #stars #dream #bird #mountains #fyp #perspective #stories #gopro #tbt #tonala #gdl

El que busca, encuentra! 🦉 . Hace rato que quería capturarlo de un disparo, pero nunca tenía la cámara en mano. Un día en el sector de escalada Chabela, en la Villa Cerro Castillo 🏔️ después del desayuno, fui a mirar las rutas y sentí que algo me miraba desde alguna parte... Que suerte, llevaba mi cámara!📸 . 💡Algunas Características de este ejemplar: Su nombre es tucúquere o búho magallanico (Bubo magellanicus ). Tuku en Mapudungun Es el búho más grande en Chile (50cm de largo ) y el señor de la noche está presente de norte a sur, y de Costa a cordillera. Y... Se fijaron que sale en el billete chileno de $5.000?
