  • Black-Eared Beauties

    This beauty is the Caracal. The name caracal comes from the Turkish word ‘Karakulak’, which means “black-ear”. The biggest of the small cats, the caracal is sometimes called a Persian, or African Lynx, despite not being a lynx at all. Capable of leaping 3m (10ft) in the air, they were once trained for bird hunting […]

    Bioluminescence is a truly incredible wonder of the natural world, and it is estimated that 90% of deep-sea creatures possess this characteristic. The purpose is believed to be camouflage, attracting mates, or scaring off predators. I’m just happy to look at them and marvel at their beauty.

  • Mesmerising Moths

    We all know how stunning butterflies can be, but I bet you never realised just how incredible their relation the moth can be? Despite the fact their glamorous cousin gets a lot more attention, there are actually 9 times more species of moths than butterflies.  Moths can vary greatly in size, with the Atlas moth […]
