It sometimes includes the Sykes’, silver, and golden monkey as subspecies.
Trapped in a tiny perfect sphere of water, this unlucky ant is unable to escape. A sudden downpour gave it no time to take cover, and photographer Adam Gormley was there to snap the image. Adam, from Noosaville, Queensland, Australia, had been photographing spiders in his neighbour’s garden when the rain came down. He had no idea there was an ant in one of the three millimetre droplets until he viewed the images later. He said: “I thought it was some dirt inside the drop, and it was not my main focus, I liked the way the drop was sitting on the aloe-vera leaf, with the tiny hairs. When I uploaded the shot to my PC, I viewed it large, and I think I shouted out loud in excitement when I realised what I’d captured by accident!”
Walking fish, sometimes called ambulatory fish, is a general term that refers to fish that are able to travel over land for extended periods of time. Mudskipper is one of them.But how this fascinating creature can live out of water? Mudskippers are able to extract oxygen from different parts of their body. Recent research has found mudskippers don’t use their gills for oxygen exchange, but use their skin for a large part of their oxygen processing .Mudskippers are quite active when out of water, feeding and interacting with one another. They are found in tropical, subtropical and temperate regions, including the Indo-Pacific and the Atlantic coast of Africa.
French Angelfish : Most Devoted Partners:
The French Angelfish is well known for its complete devotion to its partner. Found in the warm tropical waters of the Atlantic Ocean, these fish not just mate for life, they spend nearly every second with their spouse, traveling, hunting, sleeping and protecting their territories together. Mature French Angelfish are rarely ever seen alone and if they are, it is usually because their mate has passed away; they do not ‘remarry’ following the death of a spouse.
