Stalk-eyed fly

Stalk-eyed flies are insects of the fly family Diopsidae. The family is distinguished from most other flies by the possession of "eyestalks": projections from the sides of the head with the eyes at the end. Some fly species from other families such as Drosophilidae, Platystomatidae, and Tephritidae have similar heads, but the unique character of the Diopsidae is that their antennae are located on the stalk, rather than in the middle of the head as in all other flies.

Stalk-eyed flies, as the name implies, typically possess eyestalks. Their eyes are mounted on projections from the sides of the head, and the antennae are located on the eyestalks, unlike stalk-eyed flies from other families. A rather remarkable feature of stalk-eyed flies is their ability, shortly after they emerge from their pupae, to ingest air through their oral cavity and pump it through ducts in the head to the tips of the eye stalks, thereby elongating them while they are still soft and transparent.

Did you know that sea lions launch themselves out of the water in order to get up onto the docks? That's what this one was trying to do.

Animal Wildlife Nature 📹

Several plains zebra line up to drink at the Okaukuejo waterhole, Etosha National Park, Namibia.

I’ve finished processing my photos from a trip to Namibia, Africa last year (yeah, sometimes it takes a while to get everything processed). Here is a gallery of some of my favorite shots.

This gull seemed both shocked and somewhat offended by the water.

White rhino or square-lipped rhinoceros (Cerathoterium simum). This fella was having some grass behind the bushes, but when he showed his horn everybody was "holy sh*t" about its size.

Chiang Mai, Thailand.

I wish I could say this photo was taken in nature but it was taken at an elephant show arena in Thailand (avoided the show for obvious reasons). The saddest thing about these shows is that what seems to be the biggest attraction is how intelligent the elephants are.

Hopefully one day these shows would be nothing but a stain in human history.

Chikilidae with eggs

Chikilidae is a family of Indian caecilians, the 10th and most recent (2012) family of caecilians (legless amphibians) to be identified, although the type species, Chikila fulleri (formerly Herpele fulleri) was first described in 1904.

The discovery that this was a separate lineage resulted from genetic analyses of specimens collected during about 250 soil-digging expeditions over five years that covered every Northeast Indian state.
A team of biologists led by University of Delhi herpetologist Sathyabhama Das Biju described the family as representing as many as seven species apparently endemic to the region. In September 2012, some of these species were also found in Lawachara National Park in the Sylhet region of northeastern Bangladesh. The family's lineage is believed to have originated in Africa, where their closest living relatives are found.

Chikilids grow to about 4 in (10 cm) in length. They have very limited eyesight and skulls adapted for burrowing.

Their eggs hatch into adult caecilians, with no larval stage in between. The mothers stay wrapped around their developing eggs for two to three months, apparently not eating at all during this period.

Until this discovery, only nine families of caecilians were known from across the wet tropical regions of Southeast Asia, India, Sri Lanka, parts of East and West Africa, the Seychelles, Central America and northern and eastern parts of South America. From morphological and DNA analyses, the researchers concluded the new family had evolved independently of other caecilians since the time of the dinosaurs.
