Nomia iridescens a Bee with colourful abdominal stripes
This cool bee, scientifically named Nomia iridescens, belongs to the Halictidae Family, a cosmopolitan group commonly referred to as halictid bees and sweat bees.
Nomia iridescens is a conspicuously banded bee with amazing neon-green stripes, which occurs in southeast Asia (India, Borneo, Peninsular malaysia, Philippines).
Sweat bees, play a vital role in the pollination ecology of a region. By having a wide range of adaptational capabilities, these inhabit all kind of ecological niches both in tropical and temperate regions. In number and kind these anthophilic insects (attracted to flowers) surpass all other bees and thus are mainly responsible for conserving the vegetation germplasm by pollinating a bewildering variety of wild and cultivated entomophilic flora.
East African spring hare (Pedetes surdaster)
The East African spring hare, is not closely related to the hare but is a member of Pedetidae, a rodent family. This species is found in central and southern Kenya and most of Tanzania. The East African spring hare resembles a small kangaroo and is about the size of a rabbit. It moves in bounds of up to two metres and has a long tail fringed with black hairs which provides balance. It can sit up on its haunches like a squirrel. The East African spring hare is nocturnal and spends the day in an extensive system of burrows. It lives in semi-arid grassland habitats. The diet is the green parts of plants, roots and other vegetable matter and occasionally insects.photo credits: F. Spangenberg, forum

here is a rough draft
The Brazilian pygmy gecko (Coleodactylus amazonicus) is so small that raindrops pose a serious threat. Luckily, its body is so light and its skin so hydrophobic that it can shake off any drops that might land on it. It can even walk on water.
they go BOING on the leaves and then they go walk on water and stuff
Remind me to try this with some Lygodactylus…
The giant water bug Lethocerus americanus, spotted two months ago in Massachusetts. This guy was kind enough not to bite my toes.
