Beauty and Grace of Animals in Nature
« on: March 24, 2022, 05:35:06 pm »
Welcome to the Sober Thinking Forum.

This is the continuation of the Renewable Revolution Forum, with the same categories and boards arrangement. In order to provide topic thread continuity, this post will be duplicated in frequently viewed topic threads along with selected posts from that topic at the Renewable Revolution Forum. I will gradually, as time permits, copy pertinent articles posted there, update them, and post them here for your convenience.

I have no intention of closing the Renewable Revolution Forum, so any links you have to posts, articles and graphics there are valid for the time being. Nevertheless, I advise you to 🦉 copy and save any posts, articles and graphics that you wish to preserve for posting somewhere else on the internet. I am 75 years old. As long as my spirit hasn't permanently left my body, the Sober Thinking Forum will be kept open.   

Although guests are encouraged to post and become members, this forum is mostly a library reference of important historical information and timeless articles that you are encouraged to pass on, with or without attribution.

In addition, relevant recent news will be posted almost daily, so be sure to 🧐 stop by often.

Bizarre animal appearances

Animals shock us with the most bizarre appearances - some even look like they've been dressing up. But the weird and wonderful shapes and colours of nature are vital to the animals' lives. Sometimes they're disguised to help blend in, other times they are designed to stand out and show off. But whether it's a monkey in make-up or a salamander's toxic stripes, the weird and wonderful outfits enable the creature to thrive.

The obvious place to start exploring animal outfits is the colourful parrots. The birds dazzling hues are not all caused by pigment, but more a clever reflection of the light. Bright, vibrant plumage is very attractive to a bird of the opposite sex - it demonstrates that the wearer is in good health, but surprisingly the main function of their bold markings is camouflage.

There is an alternative to blending in. Some animals use colourful costumes to make themselves stand out. In the case of bold and bright tree frogs and salamanders, it's to warn would be attackers of toxins in their skins.

Intimidation can also be used in the mating game, when a male wants to make himself bigger and more intimidating to his competitors. Many birds flaunt elaborate plumage to make themselves look more dramatic. The king of courting costume though is the peacock. With a two metre tail span, covered in colourful, eyelike markings, he's hard to ignore. But while some creature costumes are easy to explain, others remain a mystery.

Animals dressing up might seem colourful to us, but perhaps it's not so strange - there is no species that enjoys putting on a costume as much as we do!

🦉 Fun photos of feathered and furry friends!

THE VIVID COLOURS OF INDIA’S BIRDS


The vibrantly coloured and unmistakable Common kingfisher is a regular sight at the Wildlife SOS Elephant Conservation and Care Centre. With seven subspecies, the little bird has a wide range throughout Eurasia and North Africa. The speedy avian can be seen flying low and fast on bodies of water as they hunt for fish, making a sharp whistle. What unique birds are in your area? Send us your photos!

Simba is growing into a gorgeous, maturing leopard. At just two months old, the young feline was found wandering a sugarcane field, crying out for his mother. Dehydrated and exhausted, lost and traumatised, the cub was at last spotted by a child from the village. Working closely with Forest Department officials, Wildlife SOS saved the little cub. These days, Simba doesn’t have a care in the world. We just love his beauty, energy and photogenic wild nature.

Seeing him thrive and grow at our Manikdoh Leopard Rescue Centre is bitter-sweet for us. The stunning and healthy leopard belongs in the wild, but abandoned at just 2 months old, he faced certain death and we were forced to intervene. He missed those formative years learning how to hunt and survive in the wild from mum. Semi-habituated to the caregivers who raised him and lacking skills to live in the wild, he will spend his life being cared for by Wildlife SOS.

(left to right) Erica, Ella and Lilly are BFFs at our Elephant Rehabilitation Centre in Haryana. Recently, members of the Wildlife SOS communications team were able to pay the elephant trio a rare social visit, and were not disappointed. It was a treat to watch the geriatric elephants' playful nature shine as they stomped around relaxing in the mud. Team members Shirina Sawhney and Arinita Sandilya took these fun photos of the afternoon's antics, perfectly capturing the elephants’ close bond.

Judith Rose met this little armadillo friend on Kiawah Island, South Carolina, USA. Armadillos, meaning “little armoured one” in Spanish, are related to anteaters and sloths. The animal has an ancient giant relative called a glyptodonts that weighed as much at 2,000 kgs, or as much as some elephants!

Thank you for sharing your beautiful image, Judith!

Alaska's Gigantic 🐻 Grizzly Bears

The Kodiak Bear is a unique species of Grizzly, known to be the largest species of bear in the world, living along the Kodiak Archipelago of Southern Alaska. In this documentary, cinematographer Andreas journeys into the depths of the great Alaskan wilderness to find some of the largest grizzly bears in the US. In his expedition, he travels through some of Alaska's most remote areas with his friend Greg and learns more about how the native Alaskan population lives in some of the most inhospitable spots of the frigid US State.
