#EarthCapture by @wildlife_mehra⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Most of the year, Christmas Island red crabs live in the forest, hidden under branches or leaves on the forest floor. Then, once a year, millions of them make their way from the forest to the ocean to breed, swarming across roads, streams, rocks and beaches as they migrate.⁣⁣

Porcupine fish are solitary animals, for their whole lives. They only come together to mate. Their laid eggs are left floating in the water, and receive no care from the adults. Once they hatch, the baby porcupine fish are carried along by the currents until they are big enough to swim. ⁣⁣

Constable Steve sighed as he saw the ostriches go, he really thought they weren't a flight risk. 🤷‍♂️⁣
⁣
#EarthCapture by @psujinder⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Contrary to popular belief, ostriches do not bury their heads in the sand. The myth most likely comes from the bird’s defensive behaviour of lying low pressing their necks against the ground to be less visible. Their neck and head blend in well with sandy soil so, from a distance, it would appear they have buried their heads in the sand.⁣⁣

A beautiful Bactrian camel and her calf. Found in some of the hottest, sandiest places on Earth, camels have adapted to thrive in these environments. They have three sets of eyelids and two rows of eyelashes to keep sand out of their eyes, and can completely shut their nostrils during sandstorms 🐫⁣⁣

The term 'black panther' actually refers to a big cat of any species, but most commonly a jaguar or a leopard whose coloration is entirely black. The colouring comes from a gene that produces a surplus of pigment called melanin.⁣⁣

In snow monkey families, female monkeys stay with the group they were born into as they grow. Male snow monkeys leave the group once they have matured to find their own territory. For the female monkeys that stay in the group, younger siblings dominate older ones with the rank among sisters decreasing as age increases. ⁣⁣

While the black fur stripes under their eyes may make racoons look mischievous, these stripes actually help them see in the dark! The black fur absorbs incoming light, reducing glare that would obstruct their vision. At night, less peripheral light helps them see the contrast in the objects of their focus. ⁣⁣
