Fossil stingray (Cyclobatis sp.)
Upper Cretaceous. Approximately 100.5 million to 66 million years ago. When alive, this creature lived in warm, shallow seas and had a very short tail, which was fitted with a venomous stinger. Discovered in Haqil, Byblos, Lebanon. It just happens to look like an ancient space alien. #science #fossil #archeology #evolution #photo #nature #biology #wildlife

As oil palm plantations encroach on rainforests, wild primates increasingly enter them to forage, where they face the threat of being eaten by feral dogs, killed for raiding crops, or caught by traffickers for the pet trade.

A new study from Peninsular Malaysia finds that exposure to oil plantations also significantly increases the risk of death among infant southern pig-tailed macaques.

Mountain Hare - from a stroll up the hills today. It was bitterly cold, but the hares were relaxed and allowed me to get close enough.

Taken with a Canon R5 and RF100-500mm lens.

Always lovely to see in the Highlands Of Scotland.

Here's one of my absolute favorite shots, "Momentary", where one had been sailing over the other, before being kicked out of the way mid-air, leaving them with a perfectly hapless expression.

Human actions have led to the deaths of more than 100,000 Bornean orangutans since 1999, mainly for crop protection, bushmeat or the illegal wildlife trade.

For the first time in 15 years, researchers surveyed residents of Kalimantan, the Indonesian section of Borneo, to find out why people kill the great apes and whether conservation projects help protect them.

#EnergyTransition: How bubble curtains protect #porpoises from wind farm noise https://www.bbc.com/future/article/20231106-the-big-bubble-curtains-protecting-porpoises-from-wind-farm-noise

"As huge offshore #WindFarms spread across Europe's seas, efforts grow to buffer the impact on #wildlife... The #BubbleCurtain was designed around the #porpoise's specific needs and traits, lowering #WindFarm construction noise to a threshold deemed safe for the species, based on scientific research. Its proven muffling effect may also benefit other marine #mammals such as #seals"

Madge was kind enough to pose for me as I snapped this photo. I've been slowly earning trust with a few crows over the past months. They are so incredibly smart!
