Here's Suci as a baby with her mom, Emi, several years ago at the Cincinnati Zoo (@cincinnatizoo). This zoo pioneered the captive breeding of this critically-endangered species.
Sumatran rhinos are being poached in the wild so quickly that biologists fear they could go extinct in the wild within the next twenty years. See @natgeo for a video of Suci today!
A veiled Chameleon in Lincoln, Nebraska. Chameleons are one of nature's most interesting and stealthy predators. Many species like this veiled chameleon can actually change colors to fit their surroundings and then stand perfectly still, only moving their eyes when hunting their prey.
Each eye moves independently, allowing the animal to see two directions at once! See @natgeo for a video of another kind of chameleon!

Kambo the red-crested turaco at Tracy Aviary (@tracyaviary) in Salt Lake City, Utah. After the shoot, Kambo sat on my shoulder and looked at his picture on my laptop. I think he wanted to help edit!

This beautiful blue beast is the Meadow River Mudbug, a burrowing crayfish that’s entire worldwide distribution is limited to two counties in #WestVirginia. Burrowing #crayfish construct burrows that can be anywhere from as little as a foot up to eight feet deep in various wetland habitats. Over 400 animals ranging from chipmunks to little crustaceans use these burrows as their homes, making burrowing crayfish one of the most important animals in the ecosystems where they live. Their presence helps promote #biodiversity- something we all should try to do! #photoark#photooftheday
