This is not a tasty gummy sweet but a Jewel Caterpillar found in Amazon Rainforest. They are covered with sticky goo-like, gellatinous tubercles that provides protection from its predator like ants until they metamorphosise into winged moths.

PhD students ‘thrilled’ to rediscover mammal missing for 124 years

by Jeremy Hance

In 1890 Lamberto Loria collected 45 specimens—all female—of a small bat from the wilds of Papua New Guinea. Nearly 25 years later, in 1914, the species was finally described and named by British zoologist Oldfield Thomas, who dubbed it the New Guinea big-eared bat (Pharotis imogene) after its massive ears. But no one ever saw the bat again.

Some conservationists believed it had gone extinct—possibly even wiped out during that first collection—while others maintained hope. The species was categorized as Critically Endangered by the IUCN Red List, and listed as number 32 in the world’s top 100 most imperiled and genetically distinct mammals compiled by the Zoological Society of London’s EDGE program…

There’s Something Very Unique About This Skunk Kit!

The union of two young Skunks last November at Germany’s Zoo Heidelberg has produced five offspring! The five lively “Stinktierkinder” (German for baby Skunks!) were born on April 28. Mother “Chanel” has kept her offspring well hidden and lovingly cared for in the birth den. The pups are just now beginning to explore their enclosure. “Chanel” has a lot to be proud of with her growing litter, but perhaps especially notable is that one of the five kits was born with white fur and red eyes, an albino!
