Scorpion glowing in the UV light

If you want to find scorpions, go out at night with a UV light and look for anything glowing. No one has discovered, yet, why is it that scorpions glow under the UV light, even though there are theories, but we can all agree that it makes it perfect for us to observe them, especially because the UV light doesn't bother them at all, so they maintain they normal behavior.

Adorable coati can't resist a tummy scratch1m03s

Adorable coati can't resist a tummy scratch

Coatis belong to the Procyonidae family, just like the very well-known raccoon, and had a similar personality, which means that they are always exploring, climbing and causing trouble, while looking for food and thinking they own the place. This particular coati is no different. He used to be kept as a pet, so he is used to humans, but that doesn't mean he is like a dog; he likes to climbing on people and search every inch of them in look of something interesting, but he won't come to your lap for you to pet him; but every once in a while, not even he can resist a tummy scratch, and completely surrenders, looking like the most adorable of animals!

Adorable black jaguar cub is a messy eater44s

Adorable black jaguar cub is a messy eater

Unfortunately, this adorable black jaguar cub has to be hand-raised, and since he is still very young, that means getting bottle-fed, but he always makes a mess when trying to drink, and gets milk all over himself! In spite of black cats being often known as "black panther", that is a general name that can be applied to more than one species; this one is a jaguar (Panthera onca), but the difference between him and regular jaguars is that he has melanism, a condition that makes him have an excessive production of melanin, which gives him a dark coloration and makes him look like he is black.

Rescued manatee uses brother's face as pacifier!

Now they are big babies, but are still inseparable! Manatees' vibrissae, the hairs around their mouths, help them feel the world around them, so they use their mouths to explore, but in doing so, this adorable manatee discovered in his brother's face, the perfect pacifier! So funny!

Walking With Elephants In Zimbabwe Is A Magical Experience30s

Walking With Elephants In Zimbabwe Is A Magical Experience

These beautiful gentle giants live in a reserve where they don't need to worry about poachers, so they sleep in night pens for protection. When the day comes, their handlers take them on walks, where they can roam around the property and browse all they want. There's nothing like walking side by side with these amazing creatures! Elephants in Zimbabwe are still the center of attention for ivory poachers. In June this year, 10 individuals, including a mother and her young calf, have been found poisoned and their tusks hacked off by poachers. A bucket of poison was found close by. The poachers use a dilute sodium cyanide solution and, in some cases, paraquat, a powerful agricultural herbicide that is extremely toxic to humans as well as other animals. Roxy Danckwerts, founder of Zimbabwe Elephant Nursery, ended up with kidney and lung failure last year after handling two elephant calves that had been poisoned with paraquat in Hwange. The first known case of elephant poisoning in Zimbabwe was a single massacre of over 100 elephants in Hwange national park in 2013. Since then it has become a common means of poaching – not only in Hwange but throughout the country’s protected areas, including the Zambezi valley and Gonarezhou national park.

Black Jaguar Cub Loves To Play With Caretaker36s

Black Jaguar Cub Loves To Play With Caretaker

This little baby might be only a month and half, and still very clumsy, but he sure loves to practice his predator skills on the people who take care of him! Watch out for the cuteness monster! Black jaguars, despite some belief, aren’t actually black. Their fur appears black because of the excess of a pigment called melanin, although is you look closely (in pictures, not in person!) you will be able to notice the spots. These cats may appear big and intimidating, but in essence they are not the natural born killers we all are taught to believe. The internet is swarmed with videos of big cats interacting and playing with humans, as if they were family. The black jaguar was considered a separate species by indigenous peoples. English naturalist W. H. Hudson wrote: “... in the hot region the Indians recognise three strongly marked varieties, which they regard as distinct species – the one described; the smaller jaguar, less aquatic in his habits and marked with spots, not rings; and, thirdly, the black variety. They scout the notion that their terrible "black tiger" is a mere melanic variation, like the black leopard of the Old World and the wild black rabbit. They regard it as wholly distinct, and affirm that it is larger and much more dangerous than the spotted jaguar; that they recognize it by its cry; that it belongs to the terra firma rather than to the water-side; finally, that black pairs with black, and that the cubs are invariably black.”
