    Bald Eagle Wannabe: ze Mini Version - Obviously the White-headed Marsh Tyrant (Arundinicola leucocephala) is completely unrelated to the Bald Eagle, with adults growing 12.7 cm long and weigh 15 g. And yet, has the same dramatic appearance as the majestic eagle…er, kinda. The photo above is male, females are too boring to show off (you know, with the typical brown feathers and no style). You can find these birds hanging out in marshy savannahs, reedbeds and the edges of mangrove swamps.

    The Violet-crowned Woodnymph Is a Stunning Jewel of the Rainforest - This gorgeous jewel of a creature is the Violet-crowned Woodnymph (Thalurania colombica). The bird in the photo is male (since they are the prettiest). Females lack the bright purple hues this bird gets its name from. Instead, they are bright green above and duller green below, with a grey throat and breast. Males weigh 4.5 g and only reach 10.2 cm in length.

    Jeypore Ground Gecko, Thought To Be Extinct for 135 years, Rediscovered! - This elusive gecko, the Jeypore Ground Gecko (Geckoella jeyporensis) had last been spotted by British colonel RH Beddome in the Eastern Ghats in 1877. Everyone thought it had gone extinct since then… but they were wrong! In 2010-11, a PhD student of Centre for Ecological Sciences spotted it again in Orissa.

    Behold the Cuteness: Tiny Gray Mouse Lemurs Born At Duke Lemur Center - These are baby Gray Mouse Lemurs (Microcebus murinus) that were born at the Duke Lemur Center as part of a special breeding program. This photo shows triplets who arrived on June 5th, 2012. Gray mouse lemurs are among the world’s smallest mammals. They only weigh 1/8 of a lb as adults! There are 17 different species of mouse lemur, but they all look pretty much the same and genetic testing is the only way to tell them apart.

    Long-tailed Tits Look Like Pleasantly Plump Little Bird Dumplings - These creatures are Long-tailed Tits (Aegithalos caudatus). A Long-tailed Tit will construct a domed nest that consists of moss woven together with spider webs and hair. The outside of the nest is camouflaged with up to 3,000 flakes of lichen and lined with an average of 1500 feathers. Even with that, the Long-tailed Tit has a hell of a time surviving predation: only 17% of nests will successfully produce live offspring.

    Merry Christmas from the Christmas Island Crabs! - On Christmas Island there are over 120 million crabs running a muck. They’re famous for their annual migration where they travel to the ocean to lay their eggs. During the migration, the crabs cover highways so densely that they are even visible from the air! Volunteers help to shovel the crabs off the roads so that the poor creatures don’t get accidentally run over. Unfortunately, some of the countless millions inevitably get hurt.

    The King of Saxony Bird of Paradise and It’s Funkalicious ‘Eyebrows’ - The King of Saxony Bird of Paradise (Pteridophora alberti) is one of those creatures that just take your breath away. It had such a bizarre appearance to explorers that when the first specimen was brought back to Europe it was believed to be fake! The adult males will perch on top of tall trees, singing loudly to compete with other males in neighboring territories. The sound it makes it anything but bird-like, though.

    Fuzzy Wuzzy Was a… Moth! - This stuffed animal turned living creature is a Cup Moth (Altha sp., Limacodidae) that almost looks too cuddly to handle. Found in China, its fuzzy little legs and plush wings kind of make it look like this weird creature is made entirely out of fluffy clouds.

    The Southern Leaf-tailed Gecko Has Quite the Odd “Leaf Me Alone” Strategy - This is the Broad-tailed Gecko or Southern Leaf-tailed Gecko (Phyllurus platurus). It will lay perfectly flat on the bark of a tree to camouflage itself when not hunting. With it’s big, leafy-looking tail, the gecko blends in perfectly. Its tail is used for extra fat storage and also as a useful defense mechanism. When and if the lizard feels threatened, it has the ability to detach its tail to confuse predators.

    A Very Happy Muntjac Family - Muntjac deer grow to be no larger than a big dog (37 inches tall and weighing in at 22-40 pounds). Another feature that makes them resemble canines is that they bark. Yes, in fact another name for Muntjac deer are Barking deer! Though instead of feeding these guys kibble, Muntjac deer prefer to dine on herbs, blossoms, grasses, nuts, and was also reported to eat trees.

    The Green-tailed Sunbird: a Living, Flying, Jewel - The Green-tailed Sunbird (Aethopyga nipalensis) is a living jewel of the subtropical and tropical montane forests of the East. The blues, reds, yellows, and burnt oranges make it one of the most dazzling birds of the region. Many bird enthusiasts travel just to see this magnificent bird in its natural habitat.

    New Week Nudibranch: Flabellina babai

    Endangered Species Spotlight: the ʻĀkohekohe - This gorgeous bird is only found on the island of Maui in Hawaii. It's called the ʻĀkohekohe (Palmeria dolei) and there are only around 3,800 individuals left in two separate populations on the island. TheʻĀkohekohe is easily distinguished by the tuft of silvery-white feathers on its beak and its distinctive calls. Hopefully with continuing conservation efforts we can save this wonderful little bird!

    Meet Beau, the Orphan Echidna Puggle! - This adorable little blob is Beau, an orphan Echidna puggle (baby) that was brought to the Taronga Zoo after it was found helpless on a hiking trail near Sydney, Australia. It's around 30 days old and lacks the spines typical of a grown-up echidna. It's quite possible the tiny puggle fell out of its mother's pouch as typically, Echidna babies are left in cozy burrows at around 45 days of age. Mom typically returns every few days to feed the babies.

    Is That a Walking Pine Cone?! No - Just a Pangolin - This is the Pangolin (order Pholidota) which is otherwise known as a Scaly Anteater. There are eight extant species of this bizarre creature that all share the same characteristic artichoke-esque appearance. When a pangolin is born, the plates are quite soft but as it matures they become increasingly harder. Pangolins can curl up into a ball and tuck their heads under their scales to protect themselves from any danger.

    Endangered Species Spotlight: Bridled Nail-tailed Wallaby - This is the adorable Bridled Nail-tail Wallaby (Onychogalea fraenata) and there are only around 500 individuals left in the entire world. The small wallaby is named for its three distinguishing characteristics; a white "bridle" line that runs down from the back of the neck around the shoulders, and the horny spur on the end of its tail. Now facing extinction, a massive conservation program has been launched to save this species.

    The Eagle So Massive, It Can Carry Off Children! - This bird is the White-tailed Eagle, otherwise known as the Sea Eagle or Ern (Haliaeetus albicilla). These birds are close cousins of the North American Bald Eagle and they occupy about the same ecological niche. Normally these birds prey on anything from fish to birds to mammals. There has been a single confirmed case of an eagle trying to fly off with a HUMAN child! While this behavior is exceptionally rare, it is incredibly interesting.

    Mouse Deer Cuteness - The Malayan Mouse Deer is native to Malaysia, parts of Borneo and the Palawan Islands, as well as Indonesia. Growing to just 18 inches tall and 4.4 pounds, the mouse deer is quite funny-looking with its big eyes, long toothpick-like legs, and a pointed little snout.

    The Most Expensive Dog in the World - The Red Tibetan Mastiff is the most expensive dog in the world. This ancient guarding breed has recently become something of a status symbol among China’s uber-wealthy class. They viewed as a “pure Chinese” breed because of its well-documented history and nearly exclusive Chinese population.The most expensive Tibetan Mastiff ever sold is named Big Splash, or "Hong Dong" in Chinese, who sold for 10 million Yuan (about 1.5 million US Dollars).

    The Most Colorful "Chicken" on Earth! - The colorful comb and wattle of the Green Junglefowl (Gallus varius) is so gorgeous! Actually, the bird isn't exactly a chicken - it's in the pheasant family. You'll find Green Junglefowl in pairs/groups of two to five in the wild led by a dominant male who leads the pack, so to speak. At night he'll lead the rest of his troop back into the cover of the forest where the birds nest in bamboo stands at 15–20 feet above the forest floor.

    Rockin' In The Treetops All Day Long: Crested Satinbird - This stylin' bird is the Crested Satinbird (Cnemophilus macgregori). It had been formerly known as the Crested Bird-of-paradise but after extensive genetic research it was determined that this bird is not even related to the rest of the birds-of-paradise.

    A Light In the Gloom: Banded Pitta - This is the Banded Pitta (Pitta guajana) and it only stands at around 8 inches tall. These guys are carnivorous birds that forage almost entirely in the underbrush of Thailand's forests.

    Story Book Character or Owston's Palm Civet? - Owston's Palm Civet looks like something out of a Dr. Seuss book. It has a long snout which makes some people believe it resembles a large shrew. They grow to be around 23 inches in length with a tail adding on an additional 17 inches. Next to nothing is known about the Owston's Palm Civet's life history in the wild. Almost all the information we have on it has been garnered through captive breeding programs.

    The Rainbow Fish Has Got NOTHIN' on the Rainbow Pigeon - The Common Bronzewing Pigeon (Phaps chalcoptera) Common Bronzewings either travel alone or in pairs or in flocks, and are usually cautious, making approach by humans or other animals difficult.

    Stinky or Sweet? The Small-Clawed Otter - The Oriental Small-Clawed Otter is the smallest otter in the world, weighing in at less than 5 kg. They're distinguished from all other otters in that they have only partially webbed paws which give them an excellent sense of touch and are highly coordinated. They have a variety of ways to communicate. Their main method of communication is by scent though. Glands are located in their tail which leave "pretty" scents about for other otters to encounter.
