It’s been a while but it is time for another Odd Animal Profile! If you haven’t been around on the site long check out some of our other OAP’s like the oh so popular okapi or maybe you’re in the mood to learn about the sunda flying lemur? Oh I do love animals called “flying” that can’t actually fly! Why don’t they just call this amphibian the gliding frog? Or the frog that can jump extremely long distances? Well, I guess it’s because it’s quite a mouthful, so flying frog it is!
I am very excited to announce Endangered Living’s first video in our new video blog series “Videos About Your Wild World.” I have been wanting to branch into video blogging for a while now, but I wasn’t quite sure which route to take. This is a short educational video that focuses on bumble dart frogs, a species of South American poison dart frog.
Hopeful within the coming weeks I will get the chance to add some sound and a better title/introduction. But for now, I am proud of my self seeing as I had to learn a whole new version of Final Cut to make this video. I promise if you stick around the videos will only get better in quality from here on out.
Recently the International Institute for Species Exploration at Arizona State University chose 10 species that it named the top 10. The species are chosen based on being unique, unusual or even ones that live in treacherous terrain. These new species are not just animals, but include plants and fungus as well!
Happy Earth Day! How fantastic that we dedicate a whole day to acknowledging all of the damage we do to our planet, it almost makes it seem okay that we ignore it the other 364 days of the year.
