Cat scientist carefully handling a partially invisible glass vial as it is working on an experiment in its otherwise invisible laboratory, inspired by its favourite scientists and Nobel Prize recipients born on this day: Christian Eijkman in 1858 and Aaron Klug in 1926, as well as commemorating the patent for the frequency-hopping spread spectrum, the basis for modern wireless technology like wifi, received by Hedy Lamarr and George Antheil on this day in 1942.

MİAUUU 😻😸😽 MARGAY (Lat. Leopardus wiedii ), kedigiller familyasından Orta ve Güney Amerika'da yaşayan yırtıcı bir hayvan türü. Meksika'dan Arjantin'e kadar geniş bir coğrafi aralıkta on alt türü vardır. Geçmişte doğal yaşam alanları Güney Amerika'ya kadar uzanıyordu. Margay, görünüş olarak daha büyük akrabası olan ocelot'a çok benziyor, ancak baş biraz daha kısa, gözler daha büyük ve kuyruk ve bacaklar daha uzun. 4 kg ağırlığında, vücut uzunluğu 80 cm'ye kadar ve kuyruk uzunluğu 50 cm’dir. Margay, gece yaşayan bir hayvandır. Çoğu kedi gibi yalnız yaşarlar. 11 ila 16 kilometrekarelik geniş ev alanlarına sahipler. Bölgelerini işaretlemek (idrar püskürtme ) için koku kullanırlar ve yerde ve dallarda çizikler bırakarak işaretlerini bırakırlar. Sesleri kısa menzellidir, uzun mesafede birbirlerini çağırmazlar. Margay, ayak bilekleri ağaçlara baştan aşağı tırmanacak kadar esnek olan iki kedi türünden biridir. Diğeri ise bulutlu leopar; mermer kedisi de bu yeteneğe sahiptir. Margay çok çevik; ayak bilekleri 180 dereceye kadar dönebilir, ön ve arka pençeleri ile dalları eşit şekilde kavrayabilir ve yatayda 3,7 m'ye kadar zıplayabilir. Margaylar önceden kürkleri yüzünden avlanmışlardır. Tür, dağılım alanının bulunduğu ülkelerde koruma altına alındığından beri bu durum önemli ölçüde gerilemiştir. Türün özel kişilerce ticareti ve Margay kullanılarak üretilmiş her türlü mamülün ticareti yasaktır. Bugün en büyük tehdit, yaşam ortamları olan ormanların yok edilmesi. Bu husus, tür olarak ormanlarda uzmanlaşmış meymun kedisini, oselotdan daha güçlü bir şekilde etkilemektedir. Ürkek ve ender bulunan bu kedi ise dağılım alanlarının büyüklüğü sebebiyle henüz direkt olarak tehdit altında değildir, ama o duruma yakın olarak sayılıyor.

Насколько я помню, интернетом правят коты и мемы, поэтому пора исправляться и поговорить о каких-нибудь представителях семейства кошачьих (𝗙𝗲𝗹𝗶𝗱𝗮𝗲 ). ⠀ Сегодня о Ягуарунди (𝗣𝘂𝗺𝗮 𝘆𝗮𝗴𝗼𝘂𝗮𝗿𝗼𝘂𝗻𝗱𝗶 ), тотемном животном инков и майя, обитающем почти на всей территории Южной Америки от Мексики до Аргентины. Вытянутое тело, сильные короткие ноги, длинный хвост и маленькая голова. Внебрачный сын ласки (𝗠𝘂𝘀𝘁𝗲𝗹𝗮 𝗻𝗶𝘃𝗮𝗹𝗶𝘀 ) и фоссы (𝗖𝗿𝘆𝗽𝘁𝗼𝗽𝗿𝗼𝗰𝘁𝗮 𝗳𝗲𝗿𝗼𝘅 ). Не смотря на всю красоту и редкое упоминание в литературе/интернетах/учебниках, вымирающим видом не является, из-за своего широкого распространения. ⠀ Вид, «вызывающий наименьшее опасение». Приручались бы, опасение вызывала чистота ваших тапок. А хотя индейцы Южной Америки, до прихода страшного белого человека, приручали пушистых для ловли мелких грызунов в домах. Но у них не было тапок. Котята ягуарунди реально легко приручаются, но современные источники пишут об их скверном характере, плохо сочетающимся с ролью милой котейки, хранящей домашний уют. И с развитием птицеферм и хозяйств европейцами, практика содержания ягуарунди прекратилась, так как удержать дикий нрав от пиршества домашней курицей никто не мог. ⠀ Котофей то еще трепло. Насчитывается до 13 разных вокализаций, включающее и мурлыканье, свист, тявканье, ворчанье, курлыканье и птичье чириканье, рыки. Стоит. Орет. ⠀ Киса - оппортунистический хищник. То есть в рацион идет, что предлагает матушка природа в данный момент, на данной местности. Мелкие млекопитающие, рептилии, птицы, лягушки, рыба, опоссумы, броненосцы. Даже инжир, бананы, виноград. Как российский студент, ест все, что можно достать, найти, упереть. ⠀ И возвращаясь к покупке нашей кисули как домашнего питомца. Несмотря на природоохранный статус, их не разводят в питомниках. Единственный способ – это контрабанда браконьерами из дикой природы и цены на котенка начинаются от 20тыс.$. Плюс законы страны об экзотических животных. Поэтому совет завести лучше кошку, все еще в силе. Ну, другую кошку. ⠀ #dvamela #bio498 #biology #zoology #felidae #pumayagouaroundi #научпоп #биология #зоология #ягуарунди

Just yesterday we had a The World Lion Day that aims to awareness and educates people about lions and issues concerning the conservation of the species 🦁 Lions belong to the big cat genus Panthera. A large, powerfully built cat (family Felidae ) that is second in size only to the tiger. The proverbial “king of beasts,” the lion has been one of the best-known wild animals since earliest times. Lions are most active at night and live in a variety of habitats but prefer grassland, savanna, dense scrub, and open woodland. Historically, they ranged across much of Europe, Asia, and Africa, but now they are found mainly in parts of Africa south of the Sahara. An isolated population of about 650 Asiatic lions constitute a slightly smaller race that lives under strict protection in India’s Gir National Park and Wildlife Sanctuary 🌎 Historically up to 11 subspecies of lions have been described. With the advent of genetic studies many of these lion subspecies fell away and up until recently lions were classified into two subspecies - the Asian lion (Panthera leo persica ) and the African lion (Panthera leo leo ). The global conservation status for lions is Vulnerable (VU ) and populations are declining❗️ We will never know just how many lions there were, but measured trends in recent decades are alarming. Today, lions are extinct in 26 African countries, have vanished from over 95 percent of their historic range, and experts estimate that there are only about 20,000 left in the wild. #worldlionday #worldlionday2020 #lion #lions #savethelions #savenature #savetheplanet #saveanimals #panther #panthera #pantheraleo #zoological #zoologicalgarden #conservation #bigcat #bigcats #kingofthejungle #majestic_wildlife_ #photography #animalphotography #zoo #wroclaw #zoowroclaw #nikon #nikonphotography #lew #felidae #loveanimals #animals #animallovers

León (𝑷𝒂𝒏𝒕𝒉𝒆𝒓𝒂 𝒍𝒆𝒐 ), el rey de la sabana, ya que se encuentra en lo más alto de las cadenas tróficas y no tiene depredadores naturales 🦁 Por desgracia y a pesar de ésto, también está en peligro de desaparecer por culpa de la codicia humana. Su área de distribución ha disminuido en un 94%, lo que ha hecho que sus poblaciones sean un 40% menores. Hoy hay tan sólo unos 20.000 leones en libertad y el tráfico de especies no hace más que mermar este número. En tan sólo tres años (2008-2011 ) se exportaron desde Sudáfrica 1.160 esqueletos de este magestuoso animal para satisfacer la nueva moda asiática: el vino de huesos de león. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- It's World Lion Day, a day to show the state of this iconic big cat. Lions are loosing their habitats due to human population increase. Today less than 20,000 lions live free in Africa and animal trafficking reduces even more this number every year. 📷 Nikon D3400 #leones #lions #pantheraleo #felidae #bigcats #mammals #worldlionday #lionday #wildlife #wildlifephotography #naturaleza #nature #conservación #conservation #endangeredspecies #threatenedspecies #biology #conservationphotography #fotografiadenaturaleza #stoptraficoespecies #animaltrafficking

Amazing Wild Jaguars 🐆 photos in the wetlands of the Pantanal, Brazil. . . 📷 Photos by @photography_tuomas . . 🐆 Caption by 🐾 @bigcatswildlife . . To the untrained eye, jaguars can be mistaken for leopards, but you can tell the difference from their rosettes (circular markings ). Jaguars have black dots in the middle of some of their rosettes, whereas leopards don’t. Jaguars also have larger, rounded heads and short legs.  Conservation status vulnerable.

El puma (puma concolor ) Es el segundo félido mas grande en América, después del jaguar y está entre los mas grandes después que el tigre, león y el jaguar, tiene mayor tamaño que el leopardo de las nieves. A diferencia de estos, el Puma no tiene la capacidad de rugir y por eso esta mas emparentado con los felinos menores. Este felino vive en más lugares que cualquier otro mamífero silvestre terrestre del continente, ya que se extiende desde el Yukón, en Canadá, hasta el sur de la cordillera de los Andes y la Patagonia en América del Sur. El puma es adaptable y generalista, por lo que vive en los principales biomas de toda América. #vidasalvaje39 #pumaconcolor #wildlifeamerica #animalphotos #natgeowildlife #wildlifepic #puma #wildphotography #pumas #animalesdelmundo #felidae #felinos #mundonatural #naturaleza_america #wildlife #bigcatswildlife

Happy International Tigers Day to all ❤ Global Tiger Day, often called International Tiger Day, is an annual celebration to raise awareness for tiger conservation, held annually on 29 July.  It was created in 2010 at the Saint Petersburg Tiger Summit. The goal of the day is to promote a global system for protecting the natural habitats of tigers and to raise public awareness and support for tiger conservation issues.

Stunning images 📸 of Leopards on the plains of the Masai Mara, Kenya. . . 📷 Photo's by @nisha .purushothaman . . 🐆 Caption by 🦁 @bigcatswildlife . . Even though most photographs show leopards in trees, research actually reveals that Leopards spend most of their time on the ground.  . . Leopards use trees as the perfect escape point from predators; to keep their kills out of the reach of scavengers; and to get the best vantage points to spot prey. Conservation status vulnerable.
