Pretty Macaw is world largest flying parrot species

The Hyacinth Macaw is native to central and eastern South America. Also known as the Hyacinth Macaw (Anodorhynchus hyacinthinus) is not only the biggest and the macaw, but also the largest species of parrots flying in the world. Though the flightless Kakapo of New Zealand can outweigh it at 3.5 kg.

The Hyacinth Macaw is an threatened species. Although generally very small in number, remains locally common in the Pantanal in Brazil, where he has been a particular program, the Hyacinth Macaw Project, involving artificial nests and awareness campaigns launched by several eco-lodges, and many farmers and the protection of macaws on their land.

The Bird watching in desert

The sun is beating down difficult on us when we arrive – a motley group of tourists from across the world – to watch a falconry display in Dubai late one afternoon. We are on the edge of a vast expanse of desert, gently undulating sand dunes in what we see.
I had vaguely assumed that birds would be greater, and the falconer would be more fierce.

In contrast, a thin man, unassuming young future in traditional white dress is blinding on setting up their paraphernalia expressionless. The hawks - are hawks, which then gives - is tied to a pole in the sand, with a delicately ornamental hood covering his eyes (it seems cruel to me who is blind, until I learned that it is necessary to allow birds to adjust their powerful vision for the new environment).

Still, with no vary in expression, the falconer gets one of the birds to perch on his arm (covered with a cushiony cuff), and the tourists quickly erupt in a volley of photo-clicking. The bird was transferred to the arms of the visitors are bolder and more shooting.

Wild Black Panthers Family in Latin America

A black panther is generally a melanistic colour variant of any of various species of larger cat. Wild black panthers in Latin America are black jaguars ( Panthera onca ), in Asia and Africa country they are black leopards ( Panthera pardus ), and in North America they may be black jaguars or perhaps black cougars ( Puma concolor – although this has not been proven to have a black variant), or smaller cats.

The name “panther” is often limited to the black versions of the species, but also ordinarily refers to those that are normal-colour (tawny or spotted), or to white colour variants: white panthers.

Lemurs Family Around 100 Species

Lemurs are a clade of strepsirrhine primates nature to the island of Madagascar. They are named later time than the lemures (ghosts or spirits) of Roman mythology because of the ghostly sounds they make, their reflective eyes, and also the nocturnal habits of some species. Although lemurs often are misunderstanding with ancestral primates, the anthropoid primates (monkeys, apes, and humans) did not evolve from them; instead, lemurs merely share morphological and character traits with basal primates.

Lemurs arrived in Madagascar around 62 to 65 million years ago by rafting on mats of vegetation at a time when ocean currents favoured oceanic dispersal to the island. Since that time, lemurs have develop gradually to cope with an extremely seasonal environment and their adaptations give them a level of diversity that rivals that of all other primate groups. Until shortly after humans reached on the island around 2,000 years ago, there were lemurs as large as a male gorilla. Today, there are around 100 species of lemurs.
