  • Kangaroos 🦘 Running wild 😜 in Australia 🇦🇺 we love it ❤️ 🙏 #kangaroosanctuary #kangaroopouch Kangaroos are the only large animals that hop as a primary means of locomotion. Their springy hind legs 🦵 and feet 🦶🏾 are much stronger and larger than their arms (or "forelimbs"). According to the San Diego Zoo, kangaroos can cover 15 feet (7 m) 😮 in a single hop and can hop as fast as 30 mph (48 kph). Usually, 20 mph (32 kph) is considered their cruising speed. 🏎 😲 #cuteanimalshot #cute_animals #animal_lovers #animal_in_world #animal_art_feature #animal_wild_hd #wildanimalsafari #wildlife_aroundworld #wildlife_addicts #animalloversunite #animallover❤️ #animalsaroundtheworld #animalsaroundtheglobe
  • Sally the #seaturtle🐢 is swimming through the tropical 🌴 waters 🌊 off the coast of eastern #australia🇦🇺️ Sally has made a friend as this area of ocean is full of different marine wildlife and plants 🐟🐠 Sea turtles don’t have a favorite food (though most will eat jellyfish.) Each species focuses on different prey for food; for example, the leatherback eats mostly jellyfish, greens primarily eat seagrass, loggerheads prefer crustaceans, and hawksbills eat primarily sea sponges. 🧽 😊 #turtlegram #turtlebaby #babyturtles🐢 #turtleconservation #turtlerescue #turtleofinstagram #turtlebeaches #greatbarrierreef with many other #turtlefriends #animal_lovers #animal_perfection #animal_shots_ #animal_bestshots #wildlifephotographic #wildlifeofaustralia #wildlifeig #wildlifesanctuary #animalsaroundtheworld
  • Willie the Otter made his way back to Germany 🇩🇪 as they are starting to return to local rivers 💦 😎 Why are Otters 🦦 juggling 🤹‍♀️ rocks?? #babyotter #ottersofinstagram The otters lie on their backs and pat the stones into the air 💨 catching them and rolling them skilfully around their chests and necks. And very impressive it is, too – they can even do it with their eyes closed. The behaviour is likely to be linked to the animals’ use of rocks to detach prey from the seabed and break it open. Recreational juggling 🤹‍♂️ may be a playful way of learning how best to manipulate these tools🛠 . #cuteanimalshot #cute_animals #animal_lovers #animal_in_world #animal_art_feature #animal_wild_hd #wildanimalsafari #wildlife_aroundworld #wildlife_addicts #animalloversunite #animallover❤️ #animalsaroundtheworld #animalsaroundtheglobe
  • Look 👀 at cute Corey the chimpanzee 🐵 as he cheekily walks away from his mum 😁 How funny is he? #chimpanzeesofinstagram #chimpanzeelove Did you know that chimpanzees are one of four types of great #ape 🦍 along with bonobos, gorillas and Orang-Utans. Also, something really fascinating about chimpanzees is they and humans share 95-98% of the same DNA. 🙊💯 This makes observing this animal and it’s behavior even more interesting. Can you notice similar traits between a human baby 👶 and a baby chimpanzee? ☺️🙏 #chimpanzeelove #cuteanimalshot #animalprotection #animalencounter #wildanimalsafari #cuteanimalshot #cute_animals #wildlife_addicts #animalloversunite #animallover❤️ #animalsaroundtheglobe

  • Look 👀 at this cute cheetah cub in the wild!! 👻 #cheetahbaby #cheetah #cheetahgirls #cheetahs thanks to @paultje_nl for this great photograph 📸 Cheetah cubs have a tough life 🐯❕✊ Baby 👶 cheetahs are called cubs and are usually born in litters of three to five. They are blind at birth and are covered with a thick coat of fur, called a mantle, which helps to protect them from predators. In the wild, cheetah cubs have a high mortality rate, it is estimated that 50 to 75 percent of cheetah cubs die before they reach three months of age. 😯 ‼️ #cuteanimalshot #cute_animals #animal_lovers #animal_in_world #animal_art_feature #animal_wild_hd #wildanimalsafari #wildlife_aroundworld #wildlife_addicts #animalloversunite #animallover❤️ #animalsaroundtheworld #animalsaroundtheglobe

  • LOOK 👀 at the Size Comparison of @oceanramsey 💙and this #greatwhiteshark 🦈 Though Ramsey 👱🏼‍♀️👣works with #greatwhitesharks 🔹 around the world, 🌍 this was a particularly exciting encounter. 💥 #sharkencounter Great white sharks ⚡️are quite rare in Hawaii 🏝 and at around 20 feet long, this was a big one. 🔵 The large female swam up and brushed against their boat repeatedly, ⛵️making her presence known to the group. ⚓️#sharkdiver Contrary to popular belief, 🌘the shark wasn’t lurking around to cause harm, 🔥but for a much more important reason. „There is a theory that large females come here when they are possibly pregnant trailing whales,” Ramsey shares. 💡 #oceanramsey Would you go and take a swim with this shark?! 😀🔵 #animalsaroundtheglobe

  • SPOTTED!! Manu the Koala 🐨 enjoying a leaf 🍃 for breakfast 🥞 at @lonepinekoala sanctuary! What do koalas 🐨 eat and how long do they sleep 💤? The Koala is the only mammal, other than the Greater Glider and Ringtail Possum, which can survive on a diet of eucalyptus leaves 🍁 . Eucalyptus leaves are very fibrous and low in nutrition, and to most animals are extremely poisonous ☠️ To cope with such a diet, nature has equipped #koala🐨 with specialised adaptations. A very slow metabolic rate allows Koalas to retain food within their digestive system for a relatively long period of time, maximising the amount of energy able to be extracted. At the same time, this slow metabolic rate minimises energy requirements. Koalas also sleep 😴 🛏 somewhere between 18 and 22 hours each day in order to conserve energy. #koalas #koalafied #koalasofinstagram #koalababy #cutekoala #koalagang #koalahospital #koalavid #cuteanimalplus #koalavideos #koalacore #bebekoala #koala #cuteanimalsco 💚🌍 #cuteanimalshot #cute_animals #animal_lovers #animal_in_world ❤️ #animalsaroundtheworld #animalsaroundtheglobe
  • Brad gives a good morning ☀️ hug 🤗 to his mother Bonnie😊😊 During the fall 🍂 , a brown bear 🐻 eats practically around the clock ⏰ stocking up for the four to seven months when it'll have to live off stored body fat. 😯 A grizzly may chow down on 90 pounds (40 kilograms) of food each day. 🌅 #grizzlybears #grizzlywintergreen As the cold swoops in, the fattened bear waddles 😎 into a den among rocks or one it dug out among tree 🌲 roots. #animal_lovers #animal_bestshots #cuteanimalshot #cutestanimals #bearrescue #bearsafety #lovebear #bearlovers #babybear🐻 #babybears

  • This is Shawn the sea lion baby 👶 who is just a week old! Shawn has been discovering his surroundings including sand! 🏝 Have you ever been to the #galapagos🐢 islands 🌴? Thanks to @imp_is_noth for this amazing photograph! 📸 #sealionsofinstagram #sealions How fast can a sea lion swim 🏊‍♂️ ? Sea lions can swim in burst speeds up to 25 mph 😯 , but generally cruise 🚢 at approximately 11 mph. Sea lions gain speed by porpoising, gliding on the water's 💧 surface to minimize resistance. Surfing 🏄‍♀️ in front of waves 🌊 or large whales seems to be a fun activity for sea lions. Sea lions have often been called the “Angels of the Sea” due to the unique way that they swim. Sea lions will use their hind to steer and swim using their front flippers. True seals usually swim at about 6 mph and can reach speeds 🚗 as fast as 18 mph. #cuteanimalshot #cute_animals #animal_lovers #animal_in_world #animal_art_feature #animal_wild_hd #wildanimalsafari #wildlife_aroundworld #wildlife_addicts #animalloversunite #animallover❤️ #animalsaroundtheworld #animalsaroundtheglobe
