An 'olinguito (Bassaricyon neblina),' described as the first carnivore species to be discovered in the American continents in 35 years, is pictured in a cloud forest in South America. The Smithsonian Institution said the new species had been mistaken for similar mammals in the Procyonidae family, which includes raccoons, for decades, and that a team of Smithsonian scientists identified it from overlooked museum specimens and trips to Ecuador

Pawprints left by you. In Loving Memory of our family dog Katie❤ You are in our hearts! Thinking of my lost furry friend as well! Scrapie I Hope you was found by a Loving Person and You my dear kitty are always in my heart❤
Pawprints, for all the loving animals that shared their life with me. Your always in my heart.
What a great way to honor a beloved pet. Our vet made clay molds of our dog's paws when we had to put him down. I'm making this for a shadow box & putting his old tags and the paw print in the box, too. The kids will love having a little something to remember the dog they loved so much. #rainbow bridge
PawPrints animal quote
#dog Pawprints Left By You \\ You no longer greet me, As I walk though the door. You're not there to make me smile, To make me laugh anymore. Life seems quite without you, You were far more then a pet. You were a family member, a friend. … A loving soul I'll never forget. \ It will take time to hew; - For the silence to go away. I still listen for you, And miss you every day. You were such a great companion, Constant, loyal and true. My heart will always wear, the paw prints left by you.

Vibrant colors from nature The Start Of Something Good
God is good...look at the beauty He provides!
Green Peacock; colors
Did you know Darwin said, "The sight of a feather in a peacock's tail, whenever I gaze at it, makes me sick!" He wrote this to botanist Asa Gray on April 3, 1860. You can't blame Darwin for feeling frustrated by those feathers. How the extravagant plumage evolved is very hard to explain. It certainly didn't give the peacock an advantage in hiding or fleeing from predators! This led Darwin to postulate a new type of natural selection: sexual selection. He assumed that the females must prefer males with the most beautiful tail feathers. Sounds good in theory, but what about in real life? University of Tokyo researchers tested the theory and found, to their surprise, that females mated with drab-tailed peacocks as often as with flashy males! Results were published in the April 2008 issue of Animal Behaviour. Peacock feathers are only one of many chinks in the evolutionists' arguments. Darwin was also stymied by the human eye. "To suppose," he admitted, "that the eye with all its inimitable contrivances…could have been formed by natural selection, seems, I freely confess, absurd in the highest degree" (Origin of Species, p. 146).
Peacock. What brilliant colors! #green #yellow #turquoise #blue #bird #colorful #color #animal #nature #wildlife #photography

Then he felt quite ashamed, and hid his head under his wing; for he did not know what to do, he was so happy, and yet not at all proud. He had been persecuted and despised for his ugliness, and now he heard them say he was the most beautiful of all the birds....Then he rustled his feathers, curved his slender neck, and cried joyfully, from the depths of his heart, “I never dreamed of such happiness as this, while I was an ugly duckling.” -Hans Christian Andersen, The Ugly Duckling

Jaguar in a muse
Big Cat, Animals To
The jaguar is a big cat, a feline in the Panthera genus, and is the only Panthera species found in the Americas. The jaguar is the third-largest feline after the tiger and the lion, and the largest in the Western Hemisphere. The jaguar's present range extends from southern US and Mexico across much of Central America and south to Paraguay & N Argentina. Apart from a known and possibly breeding population in Arizona it has largely been locally extinct from the US since the early 20th century.

I don't know whether to run or stay still, but I know that for some odd reason, I'm not afraid. I know that this animal could rip me to shreds, I know that it is dangerous, but I am too entranced by its sleek grace to do anything but stare. For some reason, the panther doesn't attack. It just stares back, its amber eyes regarding me just as steadily.
