Sand Lizzard in desert sand dunes bikaner rajasthan The sand lizard is larger than the common lizard, and somewhat stockier. Sand lizards have an attractive pattern of dark spots with light centres (ocelli), over a background of brown or grey. Males develop vivid green flanks in the breeding season (April to May). Juveniles are a more uniform brown, with distinct ocelli. There is some regional variation in appearance between animals from the north of England and those in the south, which are darker overall. Sand lizards need a variety of structural and temperature conditions to allow them to regulate their body temperature and seek cover from predators. Dense heather and marram grass help to provide this in their typical habitats. A key requirement is for unshaded sand patches, in which to dig burrows for egg-laying and for shelter. Sand lizards are 'ectothermic', which means they are unable to generate their own body heat and need to bask in the sun, or be in contact with warm surfaces, to raise body temperatures. It is often said that lizards are 'cold-blooded' but in fact this is not true: their blood temperature varies with the environmental conditions, and therefore in high summer sand lizards actually have warm blood. They are active in warm temperatures, and the lizards pursue activities such as mating or foraging. Sand lizards retreat to a burrow or other refuges by the time the sunlight fades, and remain inactive during the night. In some conditions they may also remain inactive in burrows during the day, for ...

Snakefly - Super Macro Never seen of heard of these before today. I would have liked better lighting, and more time with this Snakefly, before it flew away. Snake fly info from Wikipedia: Adult snakeflies are characterized by having an elongate prothorax but no modification of the forelegs (as in Mantispidae). They have strong and relatively unspecialised mouthparts, and large compound eyes. Some species also have ocelli. The females typically have a long ovipositor, which they use to deposit their eggs into crevices in bark or rotting wood. The wings are similar in size, with a primitive venation pattern, and a thickened costal margin (or "pterostigma") tags: snakefly super macro raynox dcr250 dcr 250 insect fly flying

Planarium This planarium was found in my front yard on 5/01/08. I live in South Arkansas (US). I have found 3 others in the yard when I first moved into this house 3 years ago. I spent months on the net till I finally found out what it was. Planaria sp., or flatworm, is a common freshwater, non-parasitic member of the phylum Platyhelminthes, class Turbellaria. It moves by beating cilia on the ventral dermis, allowing it to glide along on a film of mucus. Some move by undulations of the whole body by the contractions of muscles built into the body wall. They exhibit an extraordinary ability to regenerate lost body parts. For example, a Planaria split length wise or crosswise will regenerate into 2 separate individuals. The size ranges from 3 to 12mm, and the body has two eye-spots (also known as ocelli) that can detect the intensity of light. The eye-spots act as photoreceptors and are used to move away from light sources. Planaria have 3 germ layers (ectoderm, mesoderm, and endoderm), but lack a body cavity or coelom. They have a single-opening digestive tract.
Crenicichla Regani Here is my pair of Crenicichla Regani, the larger fish is the male and the female has the black ocelli spots on her dorsal fin. Im pretty sure she has spawned in the coconut shell, her belly was swollen and red 2 days ago but now she has lost that and the male is very protective of the coconut shell. This follows atleast a week of courtship and displaying behaviour.

Fish of the day Ep.7 Tiger Oscar Cichlid mastermindnews- New fish of the day. Tiger Oscar Cichlid Astronotus ocellatus is a species of fish from the cichlid family known under a variety of common names including oscar, tiger oscar, velvet cichlid, or marble cichlid. In South America, where the species naturally resides, A. ocellatus are often found for sale as a food fish in the local markets. The fish can also be found in other areas including China, Australia, and the United States. Although its slow growth limits its potential for aquaculture, it is considered a popular aquarium fish. The species was originally described by Louis Agassiz in 1831 as Lobotes ocellatus, as he mistakenly believed the species was marine, later work assigned the species to the genus Astronotus. The species also has a number of junior synonyms: Acara compressus, Acara hyposticta, Astronotus ocellatus zebra, and Astronotus orbiculatus. A. ocellatus have been reported to grow to about 45 centimetres (18 in) in length and 1.6 kilograms (3.5 lb) in weight. The wild caught forms of the species are typically darkly coloured with orange ringed-spots or ocelli on the caudal peduncle and on the dorsal fin. It has been suggested that these ocelli function to limit fin-nipping by piranha (Serrasalmus spp.) which co-occur with A. ocellatus in its natural environment. The species is also able to rapidly alter its colouration, a trait which facilitates ritualised territorial and combat behaviours amongst conspecifics. Juvenile A. ocellatus have a ...

My Epaulette Shark Natural History Epaulette sharks have slender bodies that allow them to swim between coral branches and wriggle into narrow reef crevices during their nighttime hunt for prey. The shark's cream-colored body is covered with many brown dots and, above its pectoral fins, two large black spots (ocelli). Those spots look like ornamental epaulettes on a military uniform—hence the shark's name. Predators hovering above the shark could easily mistake the spots for eyes of a larger, more dangerous fish and dash off to find smaller prey. Muscular pectoral fins enable this shark to "walk" along the seafloor. When disturbed, instead of swimming out of danger, it sometimes quickly "runs" away.
BEE KILLER Insects in the Diptera family Asilidae are commonly called robber flies. The family Asilidae contains about 7100 described species worldwide. All robber flies have stout, spiny legs, a dense moustache of bristles on the face (mystax), and 3 simple eyes (ocelli) in a characteristic depression between their two large compound eyes. The mystax helps protect the head and face when the fly encounters prey bent on defense. The antennae are short, 3-segmented, sometimes with a bristle-like structure called an arista. The short, strong proboscis is used to stab and inject victims with saliva containing neurotoxic and proteolytic enzymes which paralyze and digest the insides; the fly then sucks the liquefied meal through the proboscis. Many species have long, tapering abdomens, sometimes with a sword-like ovipositor. Others are fat-bodied bumblebee mimics. Adult robber flies attack other flies, beetles, butterflies and moths, various bees, ants, dragon and damselflies, Ichneumon wasps, grasshoppers, and some spiders.

Walkin' Stick From Wikipedia: The Phasmatodea (sometimes called Phasmida) are an order of insects, whose members are variously known as stick insects (in Europe), walking sticks or stick-bugs (in the United States), phasmids, ghost insects and leaf insects (generally the family Phylliidae). The ordinal name is derived from the Greek "phasma" meaning an apparition or phantom, and refers to the resemblance of many species to sticks or leaves. Their natural camouflage can make them extremely difficult to spot. Phasmids are relatively large, elongated insects. Some have cylindrical stick-like bodies, while others have a flattened, leaflike, shape. The body is often further modified to resemble vegetation, with ridges resembling leaf veins, bark-like tubercles, and other forms of camouflage. A few species, such as Carausius morosus, are even able to change their pigmentation to match their surroundings. Many species are wingless, or have reduced wings. The mouthparts project out from the head, and include typical chewing mandibles. All phasmids possess compound eyes, but ocelli are only found in some winged males. The thorax is long in the winged species, where it includes the flight muscles, but it typically much shorter in the wingless forms. Where present, the first pair of wings are narrow and cornified, while the hind wings are broad, with straight longitudinal veins and multiple cross-veins. The legs are typically long and slender, and some species are capable of limb autotomy.[1 ...

Stomatopod - Mantis Shrimp I am in love with this guy - He is so intelligent and vigilant. I feel like I could strike up a conversation with him!! He's not really doing much in this video, but I will catch him being more active really soon. Stomapods have the most advanced eyes in the Animal Kingdom. They have awesome depth perception, and I cannot help but feel that every time I go to see him, he is quite literally, "sizing me up". They can be quite aggressive, and have boxing -glove like appendages that literally extend like a toy punching Kangaroo. They do this with great force - so much so that they can smash your aquarium glass!!! So it is best to keep them calm and not startle them. He was beginning to show signs of aggression after I took this video, as he had no ideat what this 'thing' was infront of him.... Fascinating stuff......

Savannah F6 SBT kitten, Taj, Takes a Stroll Taj is a six month old SBT Savannah kitten. He loves the outside and strolls along at his own leisure, often driving me a bit crazy! He stops to smell the roses, chase bugs, bees, birds and anything else his keen eyes can see...he walks along at a snails pace at times and then frolics and runs at other times...Taj makes me smile/laugh every day! Taj does not have the typical large spots of a Savannah, which is why he is not show quality. However, he is spotted on his shoulders, belly and although his fur is ticked, spots can still be seen on his back as well. In addition, you can see the ocelli (night eyes) on his ears...
Serviformica cunicularia second imago body care Here you can see the second imago that hatched on 2008/08/11, 37 days after the queen laid her first egg. It is cleaning itself thoroughly. Aren't her eyes beautiful!? At the top of her head, you can clearly see the triplet of dorsal ocelli. They are simple eyes, light sensitive receptors. Biologists think that they are not used to detect shapes (they have too low resolution, very much like single pixels in a camera only) but to sense the polarization of light in the sky and thus always know the way home, even when the sun is not directly visible!
Is Tigger a marble Bengal cat? Tigger was originally my gorgeous foster cat but became my permanent kiddie cat. He and I adoped a beautiful female spotted Bengal named Akira in Jan 2010 who had to be rehomed. Tigger was in love at first sight and tho much bigger, is very gentle with her (except when they are chasing each other around - which is a lot). I took Tigger in when his owner passed away in January 09. She had adopted him from a shelter in August 08, so his original background is not known. He's about 2 years old He is intelligent, social, interactive, playful and athletic. He's a big boy (15 lbs) with a long muscular body, higher hind quarters than front and very big paws that he sometimes uses almost like humans use hands. His facial profile looks like a wild cat and he has prominent wisker pads. His fur is exceptionally shinny and soft - behind his ears he has light spots that feel like mink (ocelli?). His belly is light and spotted and he loves belly rubs. He has a variety of vocalizations including the bengal yowel I have heard on youtube and more recently when I took him to visit a potential permanent home that had a male purebred marble bengal. Their coloring and markings looked extremely similar and othe other cat's yowel was indistinguishable from Tigger's. Tigger is very interested in other cats, who may find him too active in his play. The other male bengal he met was initially very friendly and they met nose to nose. But a few minutes later began to hiss and avoid Tigger (although ...

BluePansy.wmv Butterfly Blue Pansy The Blue Pansy is not as common as it used to be, and is usually found in areas where there is open grassland. This butterfly was found on an abandoned railway track behind Block 9 Teban Grdens, Singapore, where there are still many miniature flowers and weeds blooming in the morning. Blue Pansy (Junonia orithya) Family : Nymphalidae Subfamily : Nymphalinae Genus : Junonia Common Name : Blue Pansy Wingspan : mm Hostplant(s) : Asystasia gangetica (Common Asystasia, Coromandel) Status In Singapore : The Blue Pansy is one of the 4 Pansies found in Singapore. The male is the prettier of the two ***es, where the hindwing is a bright blue with an orange-red subtornal ocellus. The female is a sombre brown on the upperside. Although the female may contain some blue on the hindwin, better way to distinguish the two ***es is by the size of the spots on the hindwing. The undersides of both ***es are a pale brown, with the usual markings and ocelli of the Nymphalinae. Is this male or female? Habitat & Habits The butterfly is a sun-loving species, which can usually be found on grassy patches in open areas. The species is related to the Buckeye (Junonia coenia) found in the United States of America. Males can sometimes be found in numbers, frolicking in the bright sunshine. They can fly quite rapidly and occasionally engage in a spiral dance going up some height from the ground. More butterfly photos in my Facebook: Anyone knows the Secrets to attract butterflies? 1 ...

Wart Comb Jelly/jellyfish shimmering rainbow colored space ship/alien Monterey Aquarium Wart Comb Jellyfish shimmering rainbow colored space ship/alien Monterey Aquarium - Mnemiopsis sp. - comb jelly Highly transparent, elongated body, round in cross-section, with semi-transparent rows running the length of the animal. Size: less than 1 inch to 4 inches. No sting. Jellyfish don't have specialized digestive, osmoregulatory, central nervous, respiratory, or circulatory systems. They digest using the gastrodermal lining of the gastrovascular cavity, where nutrients are absorbed. They do not need a respiratory system since their skin is thin enough that the body is oxygenated by diffusion. They have limited control over movement, but can use their hydrostatic skeleton to accomplish movement through contraction-pulsations of the bell-like body; some species actively swim most of the time, while others are passive much of the time. Jellyfish are composed of more than 90% water; most of their umbrella mass is a gelatinous material - the jelly - called mesoglea which is surrounded by two layers of epithelial cells which form the exumbrella (top surface) and subumbrella (bottom surface) of the bell, or body. Jellyfish do not have a brain or central nervous system, but rather have a loose network of nerves, located in the epidermis, which is called a "nerve net". A jellyfish detects various stimuli including the touch of other animals via this nerve net, which then transmits impulses both throughout the nerve net and around a circular nerve ring, through the rhopalial ...

Flying insects have been a huge mystery to scientists, especially those who believe in evolution. Until recently, scientists didn't know how flying insects could fly. Wind tunnel tests on insect wings showed that their wings produce anywhere from a third to half as much lift needed for flight, depending on the species. Yet, horseflies have been clocked flying at up to 90 miles per hour! Detailed research on the biomechanics of insect flight has now revealed how they manage to fly. Insect flight does not use quite the same principles as airplane flight. Unlike the wings of a modern airplane, insect wings trace a figure eight during flight. If an airliner's ...
