Cute photo of a hyacinth macaw, the largest flying species of parrots in the world. They inhabit Northern Brazil and there are less than 5,000 of them left in the world. Beautiful!

A baby sloth!

Wonderful photo of a firefly.

A pair of wild African dogs (lycaon pictus). These dogs are unusual in that it's the female that leaves the pack once sexually mature.

Otter pups are just too cute!

A pangolin mother and her baby taking a ride on the tail. Pangolins (aka scaly anteaters) are mammals from Africa (and some in Asia). They are nocturnal, live in hollow trees or burrows and feed primarily on ants and termites.

Just Chillin'

Baby hippo and mamma

 The Robust Woodpecker (aka Campephilus robustus). Amazing looking bird!

The Victoria crowned pigeon (Goura victoria), native to the New Guinea region and named after Queen Victoria. Magnificent!

The African Bee-Eater Birds are quite amazing (and brave!). In addition to eating bees, they've also been known to ride on elephants!

There's nothing like cuddling with mom!

The mighty Komodo dragon, found in Indonesian islands. It's the largest species of lizard and can grow up to 10 feet and 150 pounds! Yikes!

Adorable baby warthog. Did you know that warthogs nurse other piglets if they lose their litter (also know as cooperative breeding)? Cute!

Baby Platypuses! The name platypus was derived in 1799 from the Latin ‘Platypus anatinus’, meaning “flat-footed, duck-like”. Many naturalists thought it was a hoax when they first encountered it (we can see why!). Of course, it's also one of the few mammals to lay eggs instead of giving birth. Nature is amazing!

This is an Okapi that lives deep in the Democratic Republic of Congo and is related to the giraffe. They are solitary and usually only come together to breed. Amazing looking!

The Golden snub-nosed monkey lives in the mountainous forests of central and Southwest China. Amazing colors!

White Tigers at the Bandhavgarh National Park. Amazing!

Wow - what a stunning black Timber Wolf!
