Unbelievable but real that I found my first wild Pink-tongued skink (Cyclodomorphus gerrardii) next to the library of my school at Indooroopilly, QLD. Pink tongues prefer moist and wet habitat which does not occur in my school, it hid in a gap of steps near the library where seems like a good place to hide. I haven’t seen this individual in my school since the first sighting, so the picture was taken by my phone instead of camera.

The Eurasian Tree Sparrow (Passer montanus) and I have a tight relationship 💃❤️🐦 . This bird is everywhere I like to spend time: Mongolia, Kazakhstan, Russia, and... St Louis, USA . Though native to Eurasia, there are introduced Eurasian Tree Sparrows in St Louis and Iowa, with the epicentre of their distribution being my neighborhood, Dogtown . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #sparrow #eurasiantreesparrow #полевойборовей #воробей #passeridae #passeriformes #bird #birdsofinstagram #birds #birdphotography #audubon #yearofthebird #birdnerds #birdfacts #ornithology #urbanbirds #backyardbirds #missouribirds #birdsofrussia #wildlife #wildlifephotography #wildlifeofinstagram #animal #animalsofinstagram #urbanwildlife #missourinature #midwestnature
Okay people, throw away your trash or you get trash pandas eating your last remnants of your sandwich in front of your condominium building. #urbanwildlife #dinkytownwildlife #raccoonsofinstagram #trashpandas
Well, hello there. Are you hiding out? . . #urbanwildlife #buck #antlers
Be as hungry for life as this squirrel is for that trash pizza. #urbanwildlife #parkinglot #lifelessons

Contraste de colores. Pareja de Liolaemus tenuis en zona urbana de Maipú, Región Metropolitana, Chile. Nótese lo bien que se camufla la hembra (a la derecha), en contraste con el colorido macho (a la izquierda).

Liolaemus gravenhorstii de hoy en zona urbana de Maipú, Región Metropolitana, Chile. Lagartija endémica de la cuenca de Santiago, y una de las más amenazadas de Chile, debido a que se encuentra restringida a la zona más densamente poblada del país. #liolaemus #liolaemusgravenhorstii #lagartijadegravenhorst #lagartija #lagarto #lizard #squamata #liolaemidae #maipu #reptiles #reptilesdechile #reptileschilenos #faunadechile #faunachilena #faunaendemicadechile #faunaurbana #urbanwildlife #faunasilvestre #wildlife #wildlifephotography
When we first set up our Hedgehog feeding station we didn't get it perfect first time! Lesson learnt - water bowls need to be properly secured! #hedgehog #feedingstation #britishwildlife #urbannature #urbanwildlife #bristol #ashtonbristol #britishnature #ukwildlife
An injured friend 🙁 If you find injured native wildlife like this magpie in the ACT contact ACT Wildlife on 0432 300 033. We are taking this friend to the vet now . . . #birds #birdsofinstagram #magpies #nativeaustralianbirds #australianwildlife #nativebirds #wildlife #urbanwildlife #protectwildlife #friends #canberra #canberrafriends
I cleaned up and packaged the venison today using @olcal406 's bowl of warm water trick for stray hairs. It's so rewarding seeing all that food wrapped in butcher's paper in my freezer and knowing exactly how it got there. #meateater #venison #respecttheanimal #urbanwildlife
First piece of concept art for a new collaborative project I have been drafted into. Can’t say much right now but I’m super excited! #art #conceptart #wilddlifeart #urbanwildlife #foxes #nightlife #media #artistsofinstagram #fox #animals #wildlife
Coffee at services wishing you had a better camera - 19.10.18 #råge #rook #urbanwildlife
It’s Friday! 🙌🏻 Time to snuggle up and relax like this juvenile striped skunk we currently have in care.
"The best camera you'll ever have is the one on you" I know the frustration with having subpar equipment. In realty thiugh carrying 10lb+ of equipment around at all times is just not realistic. So even tough you might not have all the amazing gear on you now just keep your eyes open for those cheeky shots. Because even the worst shot beats the one you never took. . . Also if anyone knows what spider this is please let me know before it eats anyone's cat. . . . #photoinsparation #spider #spiderhole #creepy #halloween #photooftheday #shotonasamsungs9plus #streetphotography #wildlife #getout #cosy #urbanwildlife #cobwebs #scary #spiderbro
I see this goosander almost every time when I visit the beach early in the morning. The bird likes to hang out with the mallards. #goosander #nature #urbanwildlife #birdsatthebay #birds #morninglight ☀️ #earlymorning #earlybirds #birdportrait
What I saw: another Whitetail deer in forest lawn, one of 3, this one full colored. Wish my granddaughters would pose as well as this deer #forestlawn #cemetery #urbancemetery #wildlife #deer #716 #716buffalo #buffalony #imsobuffalo #getoutside #capturebuffalo #queencity #urbanwildlife #igersbuffalo #featuremeigersbuffalo
This gorgeous mantis was spotted today by @UCLA postdoc Andy Kleinhesselink. Interested in learning more about the wildlife in the Garden? Check out our Mildred E.

This handsome fella dropped into my garden this morning. He hung around for about 15 minutes, and seemed particularly interested in what was going on under my feeders (mice probably). I thought it was 'The Regular', but I noticed that he doesn't have the tell-tale black mark on his left iris. Also, I think this one might be a little smaller, and I think he's got more white on his front. A new kid on the block maybe??!! 😀 (4 pics) #accipiternisus #sparrowhawk #eurasiansparrowhawk #elite_raptors #raptors #springwatch #autumnwatch #essexwildlifetrust #essexwildlife #urbanwildlife #mygardentoday #wildlifegarden #thorpebay #englandsbigpicture #britishbirds #ukbirds #birds #gardenbirds #gardenwildlife #thetweetsuites #naturepics365 #birdsofprey #birdsofinstagram #instanature #wildlife_perfection #birdlover #rspb_love_nature #nuts_about_birds
Oväntat möte i morse 🤩 inte ofta man blir passerad inom en meter av en bäver, mitt i bebyggelsen dessutom. #stuvsta #huddinge #natur #urbanwildlife
A blue heron surveys Lost Lagoon in Vancouver’s Stanley Park. 🇨🇦 I’m ready to be outside again....
Great visit to the @encyclopediaoflife ’s Learning and Education Group today! Tracey Barbaro (L), Project Coordinator, and Marie Studer, Director (R) as well as our own Julie Croston (center) talked about uses for both the Cambridge Wildlife trading cards and EOL’s cards and about the spring City Nature Challenge, April 26-29, 2019. #cnc2019 #citynaturechallenge2019 #citynaturechallenge #urbanwildlife #CambridgeMA #learnoutdoors #enviroed
It’s finally Friday and I’m so happy to have a camera for the weekend! No doubt I’ll be popping down to see Anne at some point. It’s nearly the time of year where Sunday’s are the only chance I get to go out and look for something to photograph. Just the thought of that makes me a little bit annoyed! #danrushtonphotography #wildlife #wildlifephotography #wildlifephotographer #nature #naturephotography #naturephotographer #britishwildlife #urbanphotography #urbanwildlife #fox #vixen #nikond500 #sigma120300sports #f4
Neat foggy morning walk through the Union Bay Natural Area being serenaded by redwing blackbirds and some dabbling ducks. #pacificnorthwest #urbanwildlife
Someone was throwing rubbish at me as I walked by the park today; turns out it was this guy. Asshole. #squirrel #squirrelsofinstagram #busted #highburyfields #urbanphotography #urbanwildlife #london #munchies
The South African Hedgehog is a protected species in South Africa. It is illegal to keep them as pets. Permits are required to own, possess, restrain, hunt, sell, trade, import, export, transport, donate or release a Southern African Hedgehog. Besides, hedgehogs are carriers of zoonotic disease. The nature of the spines covering their body provide an opportune breeding site for ticks, fleas and other organisms. Hedgehogs have often been referred to as an eco-friendly form of pest control. They are omnivorous, where invertebrates (such as beetles, earwigs, grasshoppers, termites, slugs, snails, centipedes, moths and earthworms) form the bulk of the diet, but they also consume eggs, mice, lizards, fungus and even dog food. Their numbers are declining due to pesticide usage, electrocution on game fences, urbanisation (electric fences, predation by domestic pets, restricted movement, pools and road related mortality - especially after the first rains when they feed on insects attracted to the heat of the roads at night), veld fires and ongoing illegal harvesting for the pet trade, bush meat ( a delicacy food source in some African Cultures), curios (spines) and traditional medicine trade. Another threat, born out of good intention, is that residents discover a Southern African Hedgehog and assume that it must be lost and/or injured. These animals are then taken away to rehabilitation centres or relocated out of the area. Southern African Hedgehogs are one of a few urban-living species that occupy open areas in our cities and one which we can help to thrive as a resident in the community. Any removal from nature, relocation or keeping Southern AfricanHedgehogs as pets should be actively discouraged. Southern African Hedgehogs are also a common character in African cultural stories and for some are considered good luck. . Barcode Series.

Happy #frogfriday ! Here I am with my favorite, the Barking Treefrog. 😍 It's all about that melodic call, plus a mysterious and seemingly limited range in Virginia. This frog is regionally considered to be at risk according to #virginiaherpetologicalsociety . Like many amphibians, it's threatened by overly developed land and water sources. Barking Treefrog. 3 inches x 3 inches + mini easel. Helps support @zoos_aquariums FrogWatch USA.
