Why is this bird such a fashion icon? I want to be this bird.
Beautiful and so elegant.
The blue Crane is South Africa’s national bird and is practically endemic to the country. These birds are pretty rare because they have a blind spot in their vision and tend to collide with power lines and are often found entangled by their long dangling legs. Consequently they have a status of vulnerable on the IUCN red list. They are found across the country and there is a high density of them in Karoo. However, there is also a really good breeding programme for them in Mlilwane, Swaziland. Here you are practically guaranteed to seeing them as they wander around their enclosure near Reilly’s Rock (and you can certainly hear them by their distinctive loud guttural trill.
The maned wolf is the largest canid of South America. Its markings resemble those of foxes, but it is not a fox, nor is it a wolf. It is the only species in the genus Chrysocyon.
Poor guy. Such a weird looking animal. Now I am intrigued and need to read up on it.
He looks like he's on stilts.
Nickname for them is fox on stilts.
Wherever that is must be cold as hell in order for enough of the water to freeze to support the weight of a god damn bear
Glass is half full: Bear enjoying a frozen stream.
Glass is half empty: Beer is terrified and running around panicked that his only source of water is no longer available.
I would guess either North Dakota or somewhere in Canada.

They stole like 2/3 of my words!
I want to bury my face in them

This shows both sides of nature. The power and destruction of storms, and the unyielding strength of trees.
