Masters of the Wild - The incredible adaptability of animals

  • Masters of the Wild - The incredible adaptability of animals


    From the highest mountains to the thickest jungle, coldest ice floes, or hottest desert – the world is full of hostile landscapes but animals seem determined to make a go of it. With specialised bodies, unusual diets and unique behaviours they have conquered every corner of the globe.

    The desert is perhaps the toughest environment where animals must find ways to beat the heat. Creepy crawlies like scorpions have waxy exoskeletons to prevent water loss. For mammals it can be very difficult to find water, but some take advantage of the bug’s strategies; meerkats for example enjoy nothing more than chowing down on a scorpion, enjoying its juicy body to get most of the water they need.

    Few animals face greater challenges than the muskox on their frozen wasteland. With the hottest fur and ability to graze on the smallest or food plants they are true survivors. But wherever they live animals have adapted to make the most of the surroundings, the truth is they are all masters of the wild.

  • How Animals Survive In Extreme Climates | Masters Of The Wild | Real Wild


    From the arid desert to the home of polar bears at the freezing cold ice caps, animals have adapted to survive in places humans can barely stand to visit. From the meerkats who live in family gangs and can find hydration even in a poisonous scorpion, to the musk ox whose warm fur can keep it warm even as the temperate drops below zero, animal adaptations are truly incredible to see.

    On the coast of Namibia there's a rare breed of brown Hyena, scarcely studied by humans until Ingrid Wiesel. Rather than feasting on carrion like most hyena species, they hunt for their own prey, killing it themselves. In the inhospitable terrain of the Namibian coast, these unusually furry hyenas must fight for every scrap of food and water that they can get their hands on.

  • Did you know these facts on Adaptation for Hunting


    ADAPTATION is the modification or change of behavior, structure and
    physiology of an organism to help it survive and make itself better suited
    to its environment.
    Animals have adaptation to protect themselves from being hunted and also to help them in hunting their prey. So lets learn about these adaptations in this video.

  • Top 10 Aquatic Animals With Incredible SuperPowers


    10. Hagfish: Hagfish is eel shaped jawless marine fishes found within cold ocean waters around the world, usually in depth of 5500 feet. The slime producing power makes hagfishes so special from other species of fishes. It helps to block the predator’s mouth and gills.

    9. Sailfish: Sail fishes live in warmer parts of all oceans around the world. It has long body which measures 11 feet in length and have impressive sail like fins. It can reach up to speed of 68 miles per hour. It is also the fastest fish in the ocean.

    8. Mantis Shrimp: Mantis shrimp only have a size between 18 and 30 cm in length, live on sea beds and used to hide behind the rocks. The small aquatic creature has enough power to accelerate it’s forelimb in same velocity of gunshot from a rifle. This incredible speed of limbs lets the mantis shrimp to hit prey with 1500 Newtons of force in 1/3000 of a second.

    7. Platypus: Platypuses is a semi aquatic animal found around Eastern Australia. They have a duck like bill and grows up to a size of 20 inches. Actually it’s bill is powered through 40000 electroreceptors and more than 60000 mechanoreceptors. So that the platypus can easily sense the pressure changes produced by its preys in depth of the sea.

    6. Electric Eel: They mainly found in South American range. They generate electricity of 600 volts from its body when threatens. This discharging of electricity functioned by the electrolyte cells within its body.

    5. Planarian: This non-parasitic platform found within many parts of the world, lives in both salt and freshwater. When any parts of planarian get cut down, it can easily regrow it back. Unlike lizards and cockroaches, when a planarian cut down into many pieces each piece grows into two different planarians.

    4. Box Jellyfish: Box jelly fishes are the most venomous creature known to the world. The live around Indo-Pacific and Northern Australia region. The tentacles of box jellyfishes holds more than 5000 of stinging cells.

    3. Sea Cucumber: Sea cucumbers found in large numbers in Asia-Pacific region, have an elongated body, lives in the deep ocean. What they make so special is nothing but they have the power to cure cancer. The frondoside a chemical compound from the body of sea cucumber can effectively kill cancer cells.

    2. Cuttlefish: Cuttlefishes belong to class of squid and octopus, found within tropical ocean waters. They have green blood and three hearts. Like chameleons they can change the appearance within no time. They can alter the color of body and appearance of eyes within no time, acquire an appearance that adapts to the surroundings.

    1. Salmon: Most of salmon fishes born in freshwater and they used to migrate to sea water. They return back to the same birthplace in for reproduction, actually by travelling back to more than 2000 miles from the sea.

  • Ashas Reaction to Common Myths about Leopards!


    Asha's reaction to common myths about leopards is quite something!
    Here's busting some myths about Leopards so she doesn't give you the dreaded look.

    1) Leopards only live in jungles.
    Leopards thrive in areas even outside the protected boundaries of the jungles. Being highly adaptable wild cats, they have a varied prey base that includes pigs, dogs, rodents etc. Thus, it is not surprising that leopards can live even in megacities which have a good domestic animal prey base.

    2) Jim Corbett said once a leopard tastes human-flesh it becomes solely a man-eater.
    As they have a shy nature, leopards tend to avoid contact with humans. An injured or an old leopard, or under exceptional circumstances a leopard may attack a human when it is unable to hunt other animals. However, there is no scientific evidence available that backs the theory that once a leopard tastes human-flesh it exclusively preys on humans.

  • The Smallest Animals Alive!


    Tigers, bears, crocodiles, and sharks--we know all about the big animals you should watch out for. But what about all the small ones out there, the teeny tiny creatures that are so miniature, it’s weird to know that they exist? Let’s take a look, shall we?

    Subscribe for weekly wacky videos and learn interesting facts about the world with awesome top 10 lists and other amazing videos.

    8. Hogs And Bumblebees
    The smallest mammal in the world has two common names. It’s called Kitti’s hog-nosed bat because of its hog-like face or the bumblebee bat--for its small size. Kitti’s hog-nosed bat measures between 1.1 to 1.3 inches or 29 to 33 millimeters in length and weighs a little over 0.07 ounces or 2 grams. Scientists only discovered the bumblebee bat as late as the 1970s. It lives in western Thailand and southeast Burma, and you’ll find it cooped up in limestone caves near water. They like to live in groups of 100 to up to 500 individuals so be prepared to see a lot of them at a time.

    7. The Bird Bee
    Rounding up to number seven is the next non-bee animal: the bee hummingbird. The smallest living bird in the world is only 2.2 to 2.4 inches or 5.5 to 6.1 centimeters long, which isn’t much larger than, you guessed it, a bee! This species of hummingbird is endemic to Cuba and the Isla de la Juventud. Despite their diminutive size, their wings are strong, and the bee hummingbird is a swift flier. They only weigh 0.069 ounces or 1.95 grams, yet eat over half of their body weight in food. Granted, that’s not hard to do for their size, but still!

    6. The Sneaky Chameleon
    Chameleons are already masters of disguise. Imagine trying to find one that’s only as big as your fingernail! The Brookesia Micra chameleon inhabits the remote islet of Nosy Hara in Madagascar. Adult Brookesia micras measure 1.1 inches or 29 millimeters at the longest. Scientists discovered them in 2012, dwelling on the forest floor. At night, these miniature chameleons like to climb up low branches to sleep. They need very specific conditions to thrive, so the changing of the climate poses a danger to their existence.

    5. The Dwarf Gecko
    This little reptile is known as Sphaerodactylus macrolepis, the cotton ginner, or the big-scaled dwarf gecko. It has ten subspecies, and they all live in in the Caribbean in places like Puerto Rico, the US Virgin Islands, and the British Virgin Islands. The largest of the subspecies is only 2.5 to 2.8 inches or 6.5 to 7 centimeters long, so you can only imagine how little the rest of them are! If you were to pick them up in your hands, they wouldn’t be longer than a segment or two on your finger! Telling males from females apart is easy. All males, no matter what subspecies, have yellow throats whereas females have light gray heads.

    4. The Barbados Thread Snake
    When a snake is as big as a piece of thread, should that make you more or less scared of it because you can’t see it as well? Leptotyphlops carlae, or the Barbados Thread Snake, only reach a length of up to 3.9 inches or 9.9 centimeters or less. It is the smallest known snake species and native to Barbados, though some have been spotted in Barbuda and Antigua. We’re sure you’re glad to hear they are not venomous and only prefer to dine on ant larvae and termites.

    3. Barely A Croak
    Even if this frog were right in front of you, it would be difficult to spot them! The Monte Iberia eleuth looks like no more than a speck on foliage--and its not even the smallest frog in the world! It ranks as the third-smallest frog in the world, measuring 0.39 inches or 10 millimeters. These frogs are the tiniest that live in the Northern Hemisphere, discovered back in 1993. Biologists came across them coincidentally while searching for a different animal in the wild of Cuba.

    2. The Mini Seahorse
    Hippocampus denise, also known as Denise's pygmy seahorse, is native to the western Pacific Ocean. This small fish may grow up to 0.09 inches or 2.4 centimeters. This pygmy seahorse avoids being eaten by predators due to their adaptive camouflage. A pygmy seahorse’s diet consists mostly of zooplankton and small crustaceans. There’s not much else you can eat in the sea when you’re shorter than a human thumb!

  • Master Gardener Presents: Aldo Leopold and Phenology


    April 4, 2021
    Aldo Leopold, best known as the author of A Sand County Almanac, was a keen observer of the natural world. Leopold’s meticulous phenological observations have provided us with an unparalleled record of when plants bloomed, birds migrated and other natural events.

    Comparing his observations of hundreds of natural events to recent records helps us understand how climate change is affecting the ecological community. One lesson of Leopold’s journals is clear: For those who love nature and take time to observe it closely, keeping records enhances the enjoyment and value of our time and effort, both now and in the future.

  • NOVA: Inside Animal Minds - Bird Genius


    From PBS and NOVA - Meet a cockatoo with a talent for picking locks; a wild crow on a mission to solve an eight-step puzzle; and a tame raven who can solve a puzzle box so quickly that his performance has to be captured with high-speed photography. Are these skills really evidence of high intelligence or just parlor tricks, the result of training and instinct?

  • CMU RI PhD Defense : Adaptive Motion Planning


    PhD Thesis Defense Talk on Adaptive Motion Planning

    Sanjiban Choudhury
    Ph.D. Student
    Robotics Institute
    Carnegie Mellon University

    Mobile robots are increasingly being deployed in the real world in response to a heightened demand for applications such as transportation, delivery and inspection. The motion planning systems for these robots are expected to have consistent performance across the wide range of scenarios that they encounter. While state-of-the-art planners, with provable worst-case guarantees, can be employed to solve these planning problems, their finite time performance varies across scenarios. This thesis proposes that the planning module for a robot must adapt its search strategy to the distribution of planning problems encountered to achieve real-time performance. We address three principal challenges of this problem.

    Firstly, we show that even when the planning problem distribution is fixed, designing a non-adaptive planner can be challenging as the performance of planning strategies fluctuates with small changes in the environment. We characterize the existence of complementary strategies and propose to hedge our bets by executing a diverse ensemble of planners.

    Secondly, when the distribution is varying, we require a meta-planner that can automatically select such an ensemble from a library of black-box planners. We show that greedily training a list of predictors to focus on failure cases leads to an effective meta-planner. For situations where we have no training data, we show that we can learn an ensemble on-the-fly by adopting algorithms from online paging theory.

    Thirdly, in the interest of efficiency, we require a white-box planner that directly adapts its search strategy during a planning cycle. We propose an efficient procedure for training adaptive search heuristics in a data-driven imitation learning framework. We also draw a novel connection to Bayesian active learning and propose algorithms to adaptively evaluate edges of a graph.

    Our approach leads to the synthesis of a robust real-time planning module that allows a UAV to navigate seamlessly across environments and speed-regimes. We evaluate our framework on a spectrum of planning problems and show closed-loop results on 3 UAV platforms - a full-scale autonomous helicopter, a large scale hexarotor and a small quadrotor. While the thesis was motivated by mobile robots, we have shown that the individual algorithms are broadly applicable to other problem domains such as informative path planning and manipulation planning. We also establish novel connections between the disparate fields of motion planning and active learning, imitation learning and online paging which opens doors to several new research problems.

  • CTUIR Climate Adaptation Planning and Community Outreach


    May 23, 2018

    Presenter: Colleen Sanders, Climate Adaptation Planner, Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation Dept. of Natural Resources

    Climate change impacts are complicated and interrelated, and planning for adaptation requires the participation of everyone. As the Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation (CTUIR) begins to think about these impacts on traditional First Foods and develop an adaptation plan, gathering meaningful participation from tribal departments, community, and government requires a level of understanding about climate change science that may not be shared by all. Developing a communication strategy that cuts across disciplines and speaks to varying levels of scientific background will ensure the larger tribal community and their cultural resource priorities are accurately represented in the final product. This webinar will introduce the CTUIR and their First Foods concept that drives their governance, provide an overview of anticipated climate impacts to these precious cultural resources, and discuss the development of climate change science communication that ties impacts to First Foods and other aspects of tribal life.

  • Balancing Public Access and Habitat Enhancement at the Baylands


    The City of Palo Alto, in collaboration with the San Francisco Estuary Partnership and the Coastal Conservancy, invite you to learn about progress on the efforts to build a horizontal levee pilot project in the Palo Alto Baylands. This webinar will also feature presentations from experts on wildlife-compatible public access design guidelines, research, and best management practices. Horizontal levees are a green alternative to traditional flood control levee infrastructure. Horizontal levees use gentle, vegetated slopes to reduce wave energy and provide transitional habitat between tidal wetlands and upland ecosystems. Learn more about Sea Level Rise here:

  • Hello, Miami! Fundamentals of Local Climate Adaptation Reporting with Alex Harris of the Miami...


    Doug Parsons hosts Alex Harris, a climate reporter with the Miami Herald. Alex, the only reporter dedicated to climate change in the entire southeast, shares what it’s like covering climate change in the Miami region. We discuss the importance of local media for adaptation; using the latest science as a reporter; the mega projects Miami is considering to halt flooding and sea level rise; how a nearly decade old Rolling Stone article on climate change still haunts local officials; what happened to the Florida Chief Resilience Officer and why it’s so hard to stop using polluting septic tanks in Miami.

    Topics covered:

    Being the first climate reporter in the southeast United States Why local media coverage of climate change is so critical. And will adaptation help drive new interest in local media coverage. The challenges of covering private sector adaptation stakeholders. Embedding climate change into topic coverage. Climate justice and equity in the Miami region. Learn how every 5 years, local scientists make sea level rise estimates that local governments plan from. Why is Miami thinking of building a 20-foot wall through Biscayne bay? The lunacy of septic tanks in Miami. What happened to Florida’s Chief Resilience Officer? Rolling Stone’s Jeff Goodell lives rent free in the minds of local elected officials in Miami.
