πŸ¦„ No one knew that pygmy seahorses existed until marine biologist George Bargibant came across one by accident. He was studying sea fans – the gorgonian corals found throughout the world’s oceans – when out popped a tiny seahorse that resembled a swimming chunk of coral. The species was duly named after him. Don’t be fooled by their cuteness or by the timid look in this one’s eye – pygmy seahorses are vicious stealth predators. Their prey is copepods. These crustaceans are extremely hard to catch since they can jettison themselves out of danger at a speed of 500 body lengths per second. Pygmy seahorses sneak up to their prey, getting to within a millimeter before striking, giving the copepod no time to escape. What a truly incredible discovery! Hippocampus Bargibanti AKA Pygmy seahorse is now vulnerable due to degradation to sea fans and reefs all over the world. Photos by michiel.van.staveren #WildlifePlanet

If you're wondering what true love looks like, this is it! Max the Quaker is a spunky gal, while Petey the Nanday conure is more on the shy side. They are hilarious together and will make fun companions for the right home. Adopt them today: https://t.co/Y53YdFO9Hz ^AT https://t.co/yqPjfV0EZZ

The Arctic National Wildlife Refuge needs your help right now. A lease sale in this area, which harbors the largest concentration of denning sites for female polar bears in the United States, is being rapidly moved forward by the Bureau of Land Management. The progression of this lease sale would include seismic testing which has the high potential to disturb and harm polar bears in their maternity dens. There are only a few days in the public comment period to protect the Arctic Refuge and the polar bears that call it home. Click the link in our bio to add your name to our letter today.

It is go time! Emma is finally aboard the #ElephantAmbulance, ready to depart for the #ElephantHospital in Mathura, Uttar Pradesh. As Emma had never been on any vehicle before, our team had to be extremely cautious while loading her onto the ambulance. Understandably, she was quite wary of the process and had to be gently coaxed with the help of plenty of treats like cabbage, cauliflower, cucumbers and bananas. Her caregiver also stayed by her side through the whole process, murmuring words of encouragement to her. The duration of the drive will depend on Emma's temperament and condition during the journey. We will keep you posted throughout. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #asianelephants #savingindiaselephants #elephantconservation #elephantrescue #wildlifesosindia #emma
