Exactly what the title says!
This weekend I went in the backyard specifically to look for these little whistling frogs. They really are tiny things, and are pretty skittish, they don't sit still for very long.
After a few attempts with one or two, I gave up.
Here's all that I got...
This is previous story.
오늘은 이전 편에 이은 주롱 새 공원 2탄을 준비해봤습니다.
이번 편에서는 안에 있는 박물관과 다른 새 서식지에 대해서 알려드리고자 합니다.
Hi, this is Zefa.
Today, I prepared the 2nd Jurong Bird Park.
In this part, I would like to tell you about the bird museum and other new habitats.
독수리 공연을 본 후 위쪽으로 올라갔습니다.
위에는 어린이들을 위한 물놀이 할 수 있는 곳이 준비 되어 있는데, 생각보다 규모가 큽니다.
After watching the eagle performance, I went up.
Above there is a place for kids to play, which is bigger than my expectation.
지나서 올라가는데, 제 마음을 완전히 사로잡은 녀석이 등장합니다.
바로 공룡 시대부터 있었다는 새였습니다. 생김새를 보면 그런 느낌을 받을 수 있었습니다.
I was walking on the load. At that time, a guy came to my heart.
This kind of birds are from the age of dinosaurs. I could feel it when I looked at it.
바로 이 친구입니다. 엄청 늠름해보입니다.
This is the guy. It looks so cool!
몸집이 장난이 아닙니다...크기도 사람보다 더 컸습니다.
It is huge..the size is bigger than human.
한동안 이 친구를 보고, 옆에 있는 박물관으로 이동했습니다.
I had watched for a while, and l moved into museum.
입구에 들어서면 바로 보실 수 있습니다.
다음으로는 박물관 내부를 보여드릴게요.
When you enter the entrance, you can see it immediately.
I'll show you inside the museum.
한참을 걷다가 박물관 안으로 들어가니 매우 시원해서 좋았다는..ㅎㅎ
I walked for a while that is why the cool made me happy.
박물관을 나와서 앵무새 지역으로 이동했습니다.
새 종류를 많이 아는게 없다보니..이렇게나 많은 종류가 있었는지 이번에 알게 되었습니다.
다음은 앵무새 사진들 입니다.
I moved out of the museum to the parrot area.
I do not know a lot of bird species.
So this time, l could get some parrots.
앵무새 사진이 너무 많아서 이정도만 올릴게요..ㅎㅎ;
신기한 점은 한글로 적혀있어서 놀랐다는..
There are so many parrot pictures..those are enough.. l think.
One thing is surprising that it is written in Korean as well.
젤 위쪽에는 독수리 지역인데...철창도 너무 높고 몇 마리 없는데다가 폰 사진으로는 구별을 할 수가...다음번에 카메라를 사보도록 하겠습니다.
The eagles are on the top side but cage is too big and high...so it was not easy to see... even my phone was not useful in this case... maybe l will buy a camera next time..
샛길 위쪽에는 산책로 같은 곳이 있어서 새를 가까이서 볼 수 있습니다.
특별히 특이한 새는 없지만, 한 바퀴 둘러보니 상쾌했습니다.
Above the crossroads, there are places like walkways where birds can be seen nearby.
There is no particularly specific l bird, but it was refreshing to look around.
이렇게 가까이서 볼 수 있습니다. 저 소녀가 새랑 잘 놀았는데..끝에 새가 손가락을 물었다는...;;
like picture, you can see it closely, but the bird bit her finger..;;;
구석 구석 샛길에도 새가 많이 있기에 많이 걸으시게 될겁니다.
There are many side load, so you might walk long time.
끝으로 올빼미가 남았습니다.
건물 안으로 들어가면 무척이나 깜깜합니다.
몇 종류없지만, 해리포터에 나오는 올빼미랑 비슷해서 인상 깊었습니다.
Finally the owl is left.
When I walked into the building, it was very dark.
There are only few owl, but I was impressed because it was similar to an owl in Harry Potter.
올빼미까지 보고 나오시면 전체적으로 다 둘러보신겁니다.
덕분에 저는 퇴장 시간 다되서 나올 수 있었습니다.
읽어주셔서 감사드리며, 다음에 또 찾아뵙겠습니다.
When you see the owl, you look around whole things.
I was able to come out almost the exit time.
Thank you for reading and I'll be back next time.
끝으로 공연장 굿바이 사진으로 할게요.
Finally, I will use it for good bye.
If humans didn't have a sense of smell, it would be unimaginable. Even saying we can
sense vibrations could mean anything from sound vibrations to tactile vibrations. Simply describing function can't give you a real experience.
There's a thought experiment about this. Mary is a brilliant scientist who has extensively studied color. She knows everything there is to know about the color red. But...she has never actually seen it. Mary is colorblind. The thought experiment asks, does Mary really know the color red at all?
Luckily, scientific instruments and observation allow us to at least get a glimpse of some other senses that living beings possess. As we know, human beings have five senses: sight, sense, smell, taste, and touch. But what are we missing that we can never grasp any more fully than Mary can grasp the color red?
I did some research and here is what I found. Try to imagine actually experiencing these senses. How would your world change?
Some animals have to actively generate an electric field to detect distortions, whereas others passively follow the bioelectric fields released by the movements of other animals.
To imagine this in action, let's picture ourselves as a shark (who have the best electroreceptors in the world). When a fish contracts a muscle, it releases an electrical charge that then exchanges ions with sodium and chlorine ions in the water, resulting in weak voltage. Now, as a shark, you have over 1,000 pores around your jaw filled with conductive jelly and tiny hairs that detect and convey this voltage via neurotransmitters to the brain. Thanks to that, you easily hunt down fish under mud or behind rocks. Sharks tend to use electroreception particularly as a final homing sense right before an attack, so experiments have showed that they will actually go for an inanimate but charged object over a living creature at the last second.
Possessed by mosquitoes, vampire bats, bed bugs, pythons, and some others.
Infrared is probably the most understandable foreign sense, thanks to infrared goggles. We actually have this ability ourselves to a very limited degree. It is the ability to see the heat of any object above 0° Kelvin (-459.67°F).
But just because we can see infrared through special goggles doesn't mean we can experience this light spectrum the way other animals do. Pythons detect infrared radiation not through their eyes but through pit organs, holes in their faces that can sense infrared as heat from about a meter away. Here's the crazy part: the input through those organs does still connect with their visual minds, providing an image that lets them accurately strike prey in darkness.
Possessed by migratory birds, many insects, bats, octopuses, mantis shrimp, scarabs, and some others.
Polarized light is light whose vibrations are restricted to a certain direction. Although light naturally flows in all directions, it becomes polarized in specific directions when reflected or scattered. (Surprisingly, humans are actually capable of faintly perceiving polarized light, but it takes training.)
So what's the purpose of viewing polarized light? Let's jump into the perspective of a migratory sparrow. These birds rely on the sun for navigation, but it's often hidden by clouds. No problem: they can perceive some directions of light polarization from which they can deduce the position of the sun at dawn and dusk, even when it's not visible.
The way polarized light is perceived and how it is used by each species is still being studied. Scarabs can see circular polarization, but so far there is only a hypothesis as to why (communication).
Possessed by most birds, many fish, some reptiles, jumping spiders, butterflies, bees, rats, cats, dogs, cows, and many more.
So many animals have UV vision that we're practically an exception, blind to something that is blazingly visible to even our household pets. Ultraviolet light is electromagnetic radiation on wavelengths between the light we see and x-rays. There are UV-reflecting patterns on flowers and feathers that we cannot see.
When a cat walks outside, it can see bright urine trails other animals have left and vividly flashing power lines that look drab and grey to us. Cats have photoreceptors in their eyes that let them see into the UV spectrum, which is blocked off by filtering lenses in human eyes. Monet is believed to have been able to see UV light after having a lens removed from his left eye.
Animals with this ability include bacteria, worms, migratory birds, fish, bees, ants, wood mice, and many others.
While research indicates migratory birds have some kind of magnetite-based receptor in their upper beaks, scientists are actually unsure how most animals detect the earth's magnetic fields. Nevertheless, experiments show that many animals have an acute awareness of polarity, which is thought to be one of the main abilities that allows migratory birds to unfailingly find their way.
I have also read that dogs always relieve themselves in a north-south direction -- if you have a dog, you'll have to test it out for yourself.
Certainly the most famous of non-human senses, echolocation is possessed only by a small group of animals: bats, whales, dolphins, shrews, oilbirds, and swiftlets.
Bats don't have any special mechanism for sensing their echoes. Instead, they make high-pitched calls and listen to the returning sound waves. It's the bat brain that is special, instantly forming an extremely precise image that will allow it to snap a tiny insect out of the air.
Since humans possess both the ability to make and hear sounds, some blind people have learned to echolocate.
As I noted at the start, the ability to sense
vibrations can manifest in many ways. Humans may be able to sense sounds waves and vibrations through water, air, or solids...but some other animals have a quite different take.
Whales, elephants, hippopotamuses, some birds, octopuses, and various other animals can detect infrasound, sounds below the human hearing range. Some people believe that this is what alerts animals to incoming tsunami. Elephants use infrasound to communicate, but what makes this interesting is that they absorb the communications as vibrations through their feet and trunks.
Arachnids, various insects, millipedes, and centipedes have hairlike extensions called trichobothria that allow them to detect both vibrations and air currents. Even the very faintest puff of air moves these highly sensitive hairs.
It is often said that crickets have their ears in their legs, but they actually don't
hear the way that we interpret sounds. Instead, they feel the vibrations of other crickets' song down to the tiniest detail. How this actually manifests in their tiny brains is anyone's guess.
Water: Aquatic vertebrates like fish and sharks have
lateral lines, faintly visible canals running down their bodies that contain fine hairs in a jelly-like substance, much like the electroreceptors described earlier. In fact, the electroreceptors are an evolved form of these lateral lines. Lateral line hairs move in response to water pressure and currents, allowing fish to sense prey and orient themselves. This is what makes schools of fish swim together so fluidly.
Atmospheric: Oh, the fantastic butterfly. They may be charming pollinators, but there's something else special about them: they abound with senses. Hairs on their wings allow them to detect atmospheric pressure, air currents, position, and gravity. Chemoreceptors on their antennae, bodies, and feet let them taste where they stand. Veins in their wings detect sound vibrations. They can perceive ultraviolet and polarized light, and have the widest visual range in the animal kingdom. Monarchs can even detect magnetic fields.
Next time you interact with an animal, try to remember that they lack some of the senses you have and have some senses you can barely imagine. We all live in the same world, but our experiences are not the same at all.
PS I didn't call this
this sixth senses because I figured people would inevitably think of ghosts.
He was afraid of me at first, but later on we became good friends and had a very nice time together. Yes, that is him training fitness with the dumbells!
He likes to stay up at night and wonder around on the balcony. Sometimes he says "hoo-hoo!". He was a present from my sister's boyfriend, but where he got Businka from, he will not reveal.
"Yes! Eat, my little!"
"Goodbye, Angelina! See you next time!"
Most cats and dogs barely get along , but this couple is just inseparable friends . Four-month-old Cheetah Casey and nine-month-old Ridgeback Mtani from the zoo Busch Zoo in Tampa ( FL ), appeared in each other's lives by accident , and immediately became friends .
Cheetah joined the dog after he refused to suckle his mother . Rather on the contrary , the dog was brought to the animal rescue centre , so the little Cheetah was not so lonely . Cheetahs are very socialized animals and often create large swarms uniting several families .
Tim Smith , one of the Rangers , says that now Mtani and Casey incredibly warm relationship . They live in a cage , spending time together from morning to evening . Cheetah loves to chase the dog , playing catch-up and completely oblivious to the audience at the aviary .
These beautiful penguin photos I have shots in the summer 2011 in the great zoo in czech republic pilsen.
It was a great fun to see the penguins playing.

There is such loyalty of dogs to the people who own them. I don’t have pets due to allergies, but if I did, it would be a dog rather than a cat/bird/fish/whatever. And, it would be a medium size dog, not a tiny one. But, aside from the allergy issue, I don’t believe animals should live indoors as most house pets do. Animals for eons roamed free. I believe they prefer nature, trees, streams, fresh air. It is said that if cats were larger than their owners, the owners would be their meal. I don’t know if that’s true but it doesn’t surprise me if it is. At first, animals were domesticated for purposes of having food one didn’t have to hunt. How they moved from food sources to house pets I am unsure. All this said, my friend in this photo had a special bond with his dog and he was pleased beyond words when I found this old image and sent it to him.
Night owl bird. I took a picture of an owl that sits on a tree.
Saola is one of the rarest mammals on Earth. These animals come from Vietnam and Laos, with a height of about 3 meters glance looks very similar to the goats.
saola has a small tail and ears are long and have white spots and lines on the face.
Dugongs are large marine animals are very similar to Manatee. These animals can be found in the waters of northern Australia and into the Indio-Pacific region. These mammals have long bodies with gray and paddle like fins to the head.
These animals have the tail that looks similar to a dolphin tail. Also, this creature has a mouth that comes out on the side and be in a better position turned downwards, making it easy to eat grass in a vegetative life of the seabed.
These types of little deer was found in the Sahara desert. They look like a lot of other deer species, but upon further inspection they are actually very different.
This species has square teeth like a cow. Also, the horns in this species are very long and curved, so has the nickname of
Deer Horn Screw.
Monito del Monte is the Spanish term for
small monkey. But the name is deceiving. Monito del Monte is actually a marsupial that lives in Chile and Argentina. This mammal species considered extinct over 11 million years ago. However, modern explorers find this creature in the modern era.
It has a small marsupial mice with brown fur and big, pointy ears and a long tail. The distinguishing feature of this animal is its large eyes and he lived in the trees in the rain forest. This long tail helps it to swing from branches.
Frilled shark is a rarity in the animal world. Until the 19th century the researchers think these animals have died with the dinosaurs. However, this proved to be untrue, as some fishermen never caught him and also some of the findings of this creature carcasses.
This shark looks similar to an eel, she has an elongated body. Frilled shark has a triangular head with long gray body. This shark does not have a large dorsal fin, in contrast with most other shark species.
Ichthyophis Kohtaoensis is rare amphibian native to Cambodia, Laos and Thailand. This creature has a body like a long snake with a pointed tail.
This reptile has a dark gray body with yellow belly. One of the unique features that make this reptile is the fact that it has two muscles that control jaw.
Bumblebee Bats can be found in limestone caves, Southeast Thailand and Burma. Bumblebee adult length is only one inch from head to tail.
These bats grow has another feature that sets it apart, that snout that resembles a pig snout.
Olm are amphibians that come from Europe, mainly to be found in Italy. This creature has a long white body, with four small feet. At first glance looks very similar to a small snake.
These lizards spend their lives in underground caves. These creatures have eyes that do not grow and totally blind. Although Olm can not see does not mean helpless. Olm compensate for the lack of vision with exceptional hearing and sense of smell.
Kakapo is the only cockatoo can not fly on this planet. Meanwhile, their cousins are traveling by air, this species choose to walk or ride from one place to another.
This bird can be found in New Zealand and is often referred to as parrot ghost. This creature earned the nickname of disk shape feathers around the eyes. Parrot is well established as the largest parrot with weight up to 8 kg.
Solendon is a small mammal that comes from Cuba and Hispanola. These creatures are very similar to mice, it has a long snout and a scaly tail. However, Solenodon have flexible snout as the opposite of a shrew.
Solenodon is the only mammal that can inject their prey with venom can. So that should be done is to step back if you encounter these creatures, because they will fall and fastened on top of your hat.
It is very useful to relax in nature. Away from the bustle of the exhaust gases. silence and fresh air alone. I sometimes come with his family in suburban house near near the forest. It is not far from a farm, so many horses, some managed to remove. When we went to the forest to pick mushrooms, very fond of mushrooms on the grill.
