A #Madagascar poison frog or Baron's #mantella #frog has #aposematic or warning coloration that signals potential predators that it is #poisonous to eat it. It also has the side benefit of making them #beautiful. Madagascar has at least 220 species of frogs and 16 of these belong to this genus Mantella. Sadly, nearly 40% of world's frog species are #threatened or near threatened with #extinction. 36 species have gone #extinct in the last few decades. Many Madagascar species are threatened with extinction due to the 90% loss of its rainforest. Madagaskar'daki bu zehirli Baron'un mantella kurbağasının aposematik renkleri, onu yemek isteyen hayvanları uyarıyor. Güzel bir kurbağa olması uyarı renklerinin sadece bir yan etkisi. cagansekercioglu  uofu_science natgeo natgeocreative natgeoturkiye natgeotvturkiye #earthcapture #bbcearth #herps #nature  #wildlife #conservation #biodiversity  #biology #travel #animals  #exploration #herpetology #iucn #redlist

This Green Anaconda is around 14 and a half feet in length, and can reach an average size of up to 17 feet long, but does that mean that it could eat a person? 🤔🤔🤔 Thanks to super-stretchy muscles, the mouth of the Green Anaconda can open incredibly wide, and with strong muscles, these reptiles are also well known for constricting prey up to the size of a small deer, but their diet consists primarily of birds, mid-sized mammals, reptiles, and even fish! Notice that there are no humans on that list? Multiple attacks from this species have been recorded, primarily out of the animal's self defense, but there is no data that suggests a single person has ever been killed by an anaconda. Many movies have been made, and many legends have been told about "giant, man-eating snakes" in the world's jungles, but the legitimacy of these stories are fairly fictitious. This being said, it's true that oddities occur, but to label an entire group of animal as "man-killers" because of them, isn't quite accurate 🐍🐍🐍 Now think about this: of the pythons (constricting snakes), the Green Anaconda is the heaviest, and the Reticulated Python is the longest, but who holds those titles among the world's VENOMOUS snakes? Post your findings in the comments below!

Amphibians will often overcome anthropogenic obstacles between them and their breeding ponds. Sometimes they are too large for their physiology to deal with but this smooth newt was able to use a tuft if grass growing between two loose concrete border slabs to reach his pond. #amphibians #conservation #wildlife #nature #wildlifephotography #naturephotography #newt #herpetology #science

These must be some of the most amazing tortoises we have ever seen. Sri Lankan and Burmese star tortoises (Geochelone elegans and platynota). Highly endangered in the wild, fortunately many people here in the US have managed to successfully breed them in captivity. We are offering a couple of these for sale, CB 2017.
