Lonely baby quail chick wants to be held ~ cuteness level 1 billion

This is the first born quail chick. She hatched a lot sooner than the rest. In fact, she was all alone for several hours before the other eggs began to hatch! After she dried off in the incubator I stayed with her and eventually it soothed her. She’s still following me around now and likes to stay warm in my hand. I had a little quail buddy for a few hours before her siblings hatched. :) Now she’s with the group.

AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

A portrait of a male Bold Jumping Spider - Phidippus audax. This species is widespread in North America. Here its iridescent chelicerae (mouthparts) are visible, as are its large forward-facing eyes, which give it good stereoscopic vision.

These awesome little cephalopods are Bobtail squid and they were photographed by diver and underwater photographer Todd Bretl. Todd’s stunning photos reveal the beautiful markings on the squids’ tentacular bodies and, we like to think, a bit of their respective personalities as well.

Bobtail squid primarily inhabit the shallow coastal waters of the Pacific Ocean and are closely related to cuttlefish. However they tend to have a rounder mantle than cuttlefish and have no cuttlebone. And when we describe them as little, we really mean it. The typical mantle length of a male bobtail squid measures being between 1 and 8& cm.

Visit Design Taxi to view more of Todd Bretl’s beguiling Bobtail squid.

Calico Dominican Red Mountain Boa (Epicrates Striatus Striatus)

(Source - Undercurrent Imports)

A few more shots of this girl.  From Undercurrent’s FB:

Undercurrent Imports She is captive bred by us. She started turning calico at 3 years of age. One of her siblings also turned calico. We hope to be able to understand the genetics and produce more in the future.

 

I am absolutely loving all the Dominican stuff I’m finding, so definitely expect more of it on this blog.

Genus Lybia

(Boxer Crabs)

also known as pom-pom crabs, Boxer Crabs are a genus of small crabs in the family Xanthidae (mud crabs). the name pom-pom/or boxer comes from the mutualism that they hold with sea anemones, in which they hold the cnidarian in their claws and use them for defense, and in turn the sea anemone gets more food by moving around.
