San Diego Zoo SEALS the Seal Show best animals wildlife HD High Definition Seals at the San Diego Zoo the best animals wildlife Fur seals are any of nine species of pinnipeds in the Otariidae family. One species, the northern fur seal (Callorhinus ursinus) inhabits the North Pacific, while seven species in the Arctocephalus genus are found primarily in the Southern hemisphere. They are much more closely related to sea lions than true seals, and share with them external ears (pinnae), relatively long and muscular foreflippers, and the ability to walk on all fours. They are marked by their dense underfur, which made them a long-time object of commercial hunting. Contents [hide] * 1 Taxonomy * 2 Physical appearance * 3 Behavior and ecology * 4 Exploitation * 5 Species * 6 See also  Taxonomy Until recently, fur seals were all grouped under a single subfamily of Pinnipedia called Arctocephalinae to contrast them with Otariinae - the sea lions - based on the most prominent common feature, namely the coat of dense underfur intermixed with guard hairs. Recent genetic evidence, however, suggests that Callorhinus is more closely related to some sea lion species, and the fur seal/sealion subfamily distinction has been eliminated from most taxonomies. Nonetheless, all fur seals have certain features in common: the fur, generally smaller sizes, farther and longer foraging trips, smaller and more abundant prey items and greater ***ual dimorphism. For these reasons, the distinction remains useful.  Physical appearance Fur seals share with other ...

Swans are grouped with the closely related geese in the subfamily Anserinae where they form the tribe Cygnini. Sometimes, they are considered a distinct subfamily, Cygninae. Swans usually mate for life, though 'divorce' does sometimes occur, particularly following nesting failure. The number of eggs in each clutch ranges from three to eight.
Oats & Corn Are Not Gluten Free Corn and Oats both contain gliadin and glutenin that make up the gluten complex just like wheat, rye and barley. There is no such thing as a gluten-free oat. The proteins in oats and corn are slightly different as they come from a different subfamily of grasses as wheat, rye and barley. They don't cause a gluten reaction in every gluten sensitive person and don't seem to be able to stimulate the typical celiac disease small intestine damage as effectively as gluten from wheat, rye and barley. They are important in most other autoimmune problems like Hashimoto's Thyroiditis, rheumatoid arthritis and many more. Rice is in the same subfamily as corn and oats but has a much lower gluten content than oats or corn and seems to be tolerated by most gluten sensitive people. Sorghum is closely related to corn but seems to contain a much safer type of gluten than corn or oats. You can refer to and the gluten resources pages to see the charts and graphs that help explain why this is so. You can also get tested for about $220 to see if you react to some of these other types of gluten grains.

A documentary film on Sauria Paharia of Rajmahal Hills (Part 1, produced in the year 2002) The Paharias, as the name indicates, are a hill tribe settled in the hilly ranges of the Rajmahal Hills and the neighboring region in the Santhal Parganas, Racially, Linguistically, and culturally they are close to the Birhors. Through by name and life style the Birhors are closer to the Paharias. Both the Birhors and the Paharias belong to the Austro-Asiatic sub-family of the Austric family of languages. They are of the Dravidian origin, like the Mundas, Oraons and other members of the Austro-Asiatic sub-family. The Paharias are divided into three groups, Sauria, Kumhar Bhag and Mal Paharias. The Mal Paharias are concentrated in Amrapara block. The Saurias are concentrated mainly in the Damin-i-koh region called the Rajmahal hills. They claim to be the original Paharias, as they still preserve their culture, tradition, and language. They consider the Mal Paharias as thieves, following social codes different then the tribal codes. The earliest inhabitants of whom any record has been made, in the district of Santhal Parganas, appears to be of Males now called Saurias, Megasthenese called them Mallis, ie peoples living in the hills. Mali is the Dravidian word for hill, while Malli means man, which is very similar to the word Horo, Hor of Ho, ie man, in Mundari, Santhali and Ho respectively.

Fish Penis Bizarre *** Candiru or candirú (also canero or toothpick fish) refers to parasitic freshwater catfish of a number of genera in the family Trichomycteridae. They are found in the Amazon River and have a reputation among the natives as the most feared fish in its waters, even over the piranha. They are eel-shaped and translucent, making them almost impossible to see in the water. Some species have been known to grow to a size of 6 inches (~15 cm) in length. The definition of candiru differs between authors. The word has been used to refer to only Vandellia cirrhosa, the entire genus Vandellia, the subfamily Vandelliinae, or even the two subfamilies Vandelliinae and Stegophilinae. The most populated area by this fish is at the junction of the Amazon River and the Rio Negro ("Black River" so named for its apparent color) at Brazil's inland city of Manaos. Here they thrive as the low PH, brown, largely organic material based Amazon river churns with the conversely high PH (basic), oligotrophic (with very low nutrient content; ie organic material) tannin saturated flows of the Rio Negro. This mixing point provides a rich diversity of sustained fauna. Candiru are parasites. Their ability to detect respiratory currents in the water allows them to swim into the gill openings of other aquatic species, where they feed on their prey's blood. While the members of the subfamily Vandelliinae feed on blood, members of Stegophilinae may feed on scales, mucus, or carrion. The fish almost "hunts ...

Red Parrots Lories Eat Three red parrots. Lories and lorikeets are small to medium-sized arboreal parrots characterized by their specialized brush-tipped tongues for feeding on nectar and soft fruits. The species form a monophyletic group within the parrot family Psittacidae. Traditionally, they were considered one of the two subfamilies in that family (Loriinae), the other was the subfamily Psittacinae, but new insights show that it is placed in the middle of various other groups. To date, this issue has not been resolved scientifically. They are widely distributed throughout the Australasian region, including south-eastern Asia, Polynesia, Papua New Guinea and Australia, and the majority have very brightly colored plumage. Lories and lorikeets have specialized brush-tipped tongues for feeding on nectar and soft fruits. They can feed from the flowers of about 5000 species of plants and use their specialised tongues to take the nectar. The tip of their tongues have tufts of papillae (extremely fine hairs), which collect nectar and pollen. Lorikeets have tapered wings and pointed tails that allow them to fly easily and display great agility. They also have strong feet and legs. They tend to be hyperactive and clownish in personality both in captivity and the wild. Distributed with

Owls have at least two adaptations that aid them in achieving stealth. First, the dull coloration of an owl's feathers can render them almost invisible under certain conditions. Secondly, serrated edges on the leading edge of the owl's remiges, muffle the owl's wingbeats and allowing its flight to be practically silent. Some fish-eating owls, where this silence is of no evolutionary advantage, lack this adaptation. Elf owls also lack the feathers for silent flying. The Accipitrinae is the subfamily of the Accipitridae often known as the "true" hawks, including all members of Accipiter and the closely related genera Melierax, Urotriorchis, Erythrotriorchis and Megatriorchis. The large and widespread genus Accipiter includes goshawks, sparrowhawks, the Sharp-shinned Hawk and others. They are primarily woodland birds that hunt by sudden dashes from a concealed perch, with long tails, broad wings and high visual acuity facilitating this lifestyle. In light of recent genetic research, the kites of the traditional subfamily Milvinae may also belong to this group.

Hawaii Vacation: Ep.5 Carpenter bee HD Carpenter bees (the genus Xylocopa in the subfamily Xylocopinae) are large, hairy bees distributed worldwide. There are some 500 species of carpenter bee in 31 subgenera. Their name comes from the fact that nearly all species build their nests in burrows in dead wood, bamboo, or structural timbers (except those in the subgenus Proxylocopa, which nest in the ground). Members of the related tribe Ceratinini are sometimes referred to as "small carpenter bees The genus was described by French entomologist Pierre André Latreille in 1802. The name is derived from the Ancient Greek xylokopos/ξῦλοκὀπος "wood-cutter". Bumble bees live for a maximum of 5 days. In several species, the females live alongside their own daughters or sisters, creating a sort of social group. They use wood bits to form partitions between the cells in the nest. A few species bore holes in wood dwellings. Since the tunnels are near the surface, structural damage is generally minor or nonexistent. Carpenter bees can be important pollinators on open-faced flowers, even obligate pollinators on some, such as the Maypop (Passiflora incarnata), though many species are also known to "rob" nectar by slitting the sides of flowers with deep corollas. In the United States, there are two eastern species, Xylocopa virginica, and Xylocopa micans, and three other species that are primarily western in distribution, Xylocopa varipuncta, Xylocopa tabaniformis orpifex and Xylocopa californica.
