The Ussurian moose, shy with unique antlers like those of a young red deer, can be found on Mongolia''s Eastern Steppe, one of the last great grassland wildernesses of #asia. At 110,425 square miles, the region is more than twice the size of New York State, home to vast open plains, rolling hills, and pristine wetlands. @julielarsenmaher . . #Mongolia #moose #forest #inspired #eyecontact #wilderness #wildlife #easternsteppe #antlers

The pig-nosed turtle talks! Scientists from @TheWCS and other groups have found that this Star Wars-esque species, also known as the Fly River turtle, uses vocalizations to communicate while feeding, basking, and nesting. They recorded 182 calls from seven individuals, including some in the wild. The turtle can be found in Australia, Indonesia, and New Guinea. It''s not the first chatty chelonian. In 2014, @TheWCS scientists found that another turtle species, the giant South American river turtle, also vocalizes. #turtle #talking #reptile #shell #conversation #Australia #indonesia

ICYMI: yesterday was World Giraffe Day. These gentle giants, like this giraffe in Zambia, have seen a 40% decline in their population over the last 30 years, due in part to habitat loss. We have to protect their remaining homes to give them a chance. #WorldGiraffeDay #Tall #Giraffe #Africa #Wildlife #portrait #tower #ICYMI #zambia
