While humans use facial hair for ironic fashion statements, Catfish - another #moustachemaestro - use theirs as a way to find dinner. Their whiskers, which are technically barbels (feelers loaded with tastebuds and sensors), are very useful and help the catfish to smell and taste their way through murky water until they find an aquatic insect or smaller fish to guzzle up. And they’re pretty darn handsome too! (Fact credit lovenature.com / 📷 Shutterstock / Kletr) #catfish #catfishfacts #fishfacts #fish #riverfish #animalfacts #animalfactsforstevo

Pilot #whales are named after the idea that they follow a leader or “pilot” when travelling. The pod is led by a female who is often the grandmother of the individuals in the group. Visit the Marine Life Encyclopedia at Oceana.ca/MarineLife, to learn more about pilot whales. 🎥 Oceana. #whales #whalewednesday #pilotwhale #whalepod #family #animalfacts #marinemammal #grandmother #followtheleader

Did you know that a group of Golden Monkeys is called a troop, barrel, cartload, tribe or wilderness?
And Golden monkeys eat about 20 to 30 plant species? They mostly rely on leaves, fruits, and invertebrates, but their main preference is bamboo. Golden Monkeys breed seasonally and have a gestation period of 5 months. They give birth to a single offspring that is born with all its fur and with its eyes open.
Note that golden monkey (Cercopithecus kandti) is a species of Old World monkey found in the Virunga volcanic mountains. Photo by @jeanmarie.nature_images taken in @volcanoespark

Animal facts (@animal_didyouknows)

Did you known that Spotted hyena females have a pseudopenis?

Their elongated and erectable clitoris ('pseudopenis') resembles the penis of males and is used for urination, copulation and childbirth.
During mating full cooperation of females is needed, which means that mating preferences of the female are predominant.

The New Guinea singing dog is one of the rarest dogs in the world. As their name suggests, they are found in New Guinea and are known for their unique, single-note howling call. If you’re lucky enough to catch a group of these dogs howling all at slightly different pitches, it might sound something like a barbershop chorus. However, an occurrence like that is highly unlikely, as there are only 100 in captivity world-wide and sightings in the wild are few and far between. New Guinea singing dogs are one of the most primitive canines in the world. They’ve been isolated from other domestic dogs in their mountainous habitat for as long as 30,000 years and remain virtually unchanged from their oldest ancestors. These dogs may look like your family’s pet, but they have strong predatory instincts and do not play well with other animals or children, so they should not be kept in a household.
The New Guinea singing dog is considered a subset of dingos and is therefore listed as vulnerable on the #IUCN Red List. This animal was photographed at the @millerparkzoo in Illinois.

Fact: The word "flamingo" comes from the Spanish and Latin word "flamenco" which means fire, and refers to the bright color of the birds' feathers. Not all flamingos are brightly colored, however, and some of the birds are mostly gray or white. The strength of a flamingo's coloration comes from its diet. Younger birds also have less coloration.

Seneca Park Zoo (@senecaparkzoo)

Canada lynx have long been highly valued by trappers for their thick, soft fur. And while they can no longer be legally trapped in the lower 48 states, lynx populations haven't fully recovered and remain at risk due to habitat loss

One of the smallest and most brilliant animals featured on our Infinite Safari Adventures notecards set is the Malachite Kingfisher. These lovely birds are amazing at catching fish and they fall in love like we do. Once they pick a mate the pair stays together and works as an incredible team in all aspects of life.
