These well dressed ducks can be sound on the Arctic coastlines of North America and Eurasia, and apparently are delicious. But how could you eat something so awesome looking?!
The animal of the day is the Bald Eagle. (Did you know: While bald eagles are well known hunters of fish, small mammals and other birds, they also will steal food straight from other birds [osprey’s especially], and will happily eat carrion. Shoot, they’ll even steal a fish from a fisher-human.
Their nests are the largest of all North American birds (measuring up to almost 10 feet in diameter and weighing up to a ton!
And, remember that bald eagle females are bigger than the males! And darn protective of their young.
The animal of the day is the Gibbon. (Did you know: The mating couples of gibbons sing a duet in the mornings to mark their territory! Technically they’re apes (even more technically they are called lesser apes[how rude]) because they’re much smaller than other apes and are alot more like monkey’s in many of ways.
The gibbons’ ball-and-socket joints allow them unmatched speed and accuracy when swinging through trees. Nonetheless, their mode of transportation can lead to hazards when a branch breaks or a hand slips, and researchers estimate that the majority of gibbons suffer bone fractures one or more times during their lifetimes.They are the fastest and most agile of all tree-dwelling, non-flying mammals.
These monkeys produce a wide range of vocalizations often, remarkably, without making any facial movements, in the manner of a ventriloquist!
These guys inhabit both the Atlantic and Pacific coasts, found in shallow beaches and coral reefs. These guys freak me out. And why are there so many pictures of them eating whole fish alive!?
