Shark Week is best week.
A a great white shark leaps out of the water clutching a decoy seal in its jaws. The picture of the shark hovering in mid-air above the water was taken by Dana Allen in False Bay, off Cape Town in South Africa. Dana's team spent three days trying to set up the shot by using a rubber 'decoy' seal to tempt the sharks out. He said: "The strike, when it happens, takes just over a second, up and out and back into the water. If you flinch, you can miss it. We were getting ourselves settled, preparing

Lichen Katydid (Markia hystrix) Monteverde Costa Rica 2005 -- from Tom Patterson @ https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1661750685 in his album "Misc. inverts". Who needs to dream up weird aliens and fake monsters when we share the planet with far-out animals like this?
The Amazing Lichen Katydid (Markia hystrix) Specifically, the tropical katydid uses camouflage as protection against predators. It resembles patches of lichen. At the same time, its protective coloring makes it a most effective predator. As a night feeder with carefully timed movements, this particular katydid preys on other insects attracted to and stunned by night lights. photo credit: ©Tom Patterson

Cork Bark Leaf-Tailed Gecko - Madagascar
Interesting Animal, Madagascar Geckos, Leaf Tail Geckos, Bark Leaf Tail, Corks Bark, Baby Animal, Geckos Uroplatus, Amazing Animal, Geckos Treebark
The amazing cork bark leaf-tailed gecko (Uroplatus pietschmanni) was discovered in 2003 by scientists in the east coast rainforest of Madagascar, in Toamasina province, at an altitude of some 1000m. The 13cm-long species likes to climb thick branches, corkbark, and sturdy broadleafed plants, and has perfect camouflage. It is much less common than most other varieties and little is known about its range and distribution in its natural habitat. Animals amaze me!!

Pinocchio Frog is the informal name for a tree frog (most likely a member of the genus Litoria) discovered in the Foja mountains of Papua, Indonesia in 2010.
WILD NEW JERSEY: Jill's Pick from Around the World: New Species Found ...
Named after the much beloved character created by Carlo Collodi, this little frog is called ‘Pinocchio’ frog. And yes, just like that fictional little boy, the frog too is characterized by a long nose. It was a complete stroke of luck for herpetologist Paul Oliver to have spotted this little creature when it decided to drop in on his campsite in the Foja Mountains, Indonesia. Oliver noticed the distinctive nose right away and also noticed that the nose pointed up only when the frog emitted it...
Foja Mountains, new species discovered: "Pinocchio" frog, photo by Tim Laman for National Geographic
This Pinocchio-like tree frog species was discovered in Foja Mountains where herpetologist Paul Oliver of Australias University of Adelaide spotted it. Oliver was unable to find another of these frogs, and suspects that they stay mostly in the treetops. The male frogs nose, the scientists were surprised to discover, points upward when the animals calling and hangs flaccid when its not. Exactly what it is for, no one really knows for sure, Oliver said. (Link)

Cobalt Blue Tarantula: Cool Things About The Cobalt Blue Tarantula Yes, the colour of the Cobalt Blue Tarantula is actually a greyish-blue. This probably doesn’t make the spider more lovable but it definitely doesn’t hurt This Old World Tarantula is native to the tropical forests of southeast Asia including Myanmar, Laos, Thailand, Vietnam and the beautiful Cambodia
