One of the two stunning jaguar brothers we watched in the Pantanal. They were only about 9 months old, but were already independent - their mother left them a couple of months ago. This is very early for the big cats to be on their own, but there is so much food in the Pantanal that the young jaguars seem to leave their mothers earlier than in other parts of their range #jaguar#pantanal#wildcats#bigcats
"Once I rose above the noise and confusion
Just to get a glimpse beyond the illusion"
It's one of those things which the mind takes a second to process
You see, these goats climb argan trees (endemic to the semi desert region of Morocco) in order to eat delicious argan fruits. The excreted undigestible argan nuts are collected for processing into the argan oil we love so much (check your bath products for 'oil of Morocco!'). Fact: a 1.7 oz bottle of argan oil apparently costs $48 at Sephora
While it is jarring to see a tree full of live furry ornaments, it should click when you remember that goats are nature's most adept climbers. But such is the state of our disconnection with the natural world that for many of us, goat yoga mentally registers with less dissonance than goats in a tree
This is no longer how most argan oil is made of course. There are facilities more efficient and less er... organic than a goat's digestive tract
But, in some places, the old way still goes on. Certainly goatherds have also figured out that this makes for a rather unique attraction, as baffled as they might be as to why one would be so fascinated by a phenomenon as unremarkable as goats in a tree
For the rest of us though, it is impossible to pass up the opportunity for some rather interesting images
The challenge, of course, was to find a clean image which captured just how nonchalantly these goats were perched on their argan tree
🇬🇧 This baby was with us for two days in a row. Both times, he was playfull, inquisitive and very curious. He was coming up to take a breath and going down to find his resting mom on the bottom. For more then 1 hour, we stay in the water with them, enjoying this amazing behaviour.
🇧🇷 Este bebê esteve conosco por dois dias seguidos. Nas duas vezes, ele estava brincalhão e super curioso. Ele vinha à superfície para respirar e voltava ao fundo para encontrar sua mãe, que ali descansava. Por mais de uma hora, nós permanecemos na água com eles, apreciando este incrível comportamento.
1. I was driving on this street where I Usually found raptors... I have to stop because I saw This Cara Cara on the side of the road ... He started walking through me and then I realize He was trying to eat a snake
2. a truck drove by and He flew with the snake to the other side of the road... Finally He flew away with the snake ... some extra photos at the stories
