    The name Praying Mantis refers to the way the insect bends its front legs so they are at an angle as if folded in prayer.  Most mantids live in the tropics and there are approximately 2000 species of them.  Coming in an array of stunning colours and sizes, they are also the only insect to […]

    Apparently the science of shaking oneself dry is “fascinating” to scientists, and dogs can rid themselves of 70% of the water in their fur within 4 seconds! Incredibly, a drop of water can be thrown from an animal’s fur during shaking at acceleration of between 10-70 times gravity! Wouldn’t it be nice to make do […]

    The colour, oh the colour!  Can you believe these are all real?  Nature was having an amazing day when these stunners were created!  From chameleons to beetles, vipers to shrimp, and frogs to birds, the variety and array of unbelievable hues never disappoints.  If they were wearing clothes, they would certainly be the most dapper […]

    In humans they’re called mohawks and often aren’t seen in the most positive light, but in the avian world the prominent feathers on the head are referred to as a crest, and is quite the thing of beauty.  These feathered stunners are all having amazing hair days and could definitely give us all some styling […]
