Check natgeo's Instagram Photo @tbfrost | This might look like a chicken embryo but it is in fact a saltwater crocodile embryo , photographed in the Northern Territory of Australia. I will post an adorable video by @melissalesh of Baby hatchling saltwater crocodiles in the wild on my profile @tbfrost. The reason that a chicken embryo and crocodile embryo look so similar is that crocodiles and birds are very closely related, both share a common ancestor: the archosaur. What is even cooler though is that scientists can see crocodiles have changed very little since the time of dinosaurs whereas birds have evolved considerably. Crocs really are the world's great survivors! For more photos and videos of crocodiles, follow @tbfrost. Photo made on assignment for National Geographic Society grant project on crocodiles. 1478650778201463680_787132

A juvenile blue-eyed shag approaches me to inspect itself in my dome.  No matter where I swam and no matter what I was trying to photograph, the curiosity of these young cormorants got the best of them.  They poked, prodded and inspected every part of my dive gear.  I fought back laughter and decided to quit running from them and grab a fun portrait.  #followme on @paulnicklen to see more from this icy dreamscape.  #gratitude #nature #beauty #earthhour #naturelovers 1478573317442925511_787132

I am excited to bring my NG LIVE presentation, “On the Trail of Big Cats” to @natgeo’s Grosvenor Theater in Washington DC on April 13th! 
Please come to hear about my life and work with Jaguars, Snow Leopards, Cougars and Tigers!! Scarface succeeds after many days and gets his caiman!!
We need to realize deep in our hearts that animals have emotions too. If we can treat them better - maybe we could find some empathy inside of us to treat each other better also.
We need to fight for the right of jaguars to live - peacefully and without being killed for the traditional medicine market, and other trade. Help stop the demand for endangered species used in this practice! “When the buying stops, the killing can too” #wildaid
Our animal family is so much like us - they find mates, they have kids, they have to feed themselves and their families, 
they feed themselves and their families in the same way we as humans used to! If we can find a way to believe they think, feel and have emotions, maybe we can treat them better and find a way to ensure their future on this planet. 
They are keystone species in their ecosystems, though we as humans are not. The forests and grasslands of big cats give us 50% of our oxygen and 75% of fresh water. If we can save big cats we can help save ourselves!

Check natgeo's Instagram Photograph by @thomaspeschak A shiver of scalloped  hammerhead sharks swims off Darwin Island in the Galápagos.  They are looking for cleaning stations where reef fish pick parasites and remove diseased skin (see white patches in this photograph) from these sharks. @saveourseasfoundation funded shark scientist Dr. Pelayo Salinas studies how water temperatures effects shark populations and has observed that after prolonged hot periods skin infections and parasite loads seem more prominent. On our warming planet this could result in further pressures on these already endangered sharks. Shot on assignment for @natgeo magazine for a forthcoming story on Climate Change and the Galápagos Islands.

Check natgeo's Instagram Video: @andy_mann // An unfortunate mishap leads to ingenuity, and with one massive breath hold, a new way of collecting data is born. While working with biologist, Jorge Fontes, in Azores, we noticed a Mobula (Devil Ray) stuck to an anchor line and it sparked an idea. This is the first known deployment of a non-invasive, radio collar-tag to the species. In the past, tags are often speared into the Rays, arguably effecting their normal behavior and thus the data collected. The more we can learn about these beautiful rays the better the chances of protecting them.

Check natgeo's Instagram Photo by @BrianSkerry. ‘Shark Lagoon’ - Blacktop Reef Sharks, Blue Travallies and Twinspot Snappers swirl within the pristene lagoon at Millennium Atoll, in the Southern Line Islands. 
Because of their remoteness, these islands and the waters surrounding them remain largely unspoiled, and diving the reefs here is like traveling back in time.

Researchers studying coral ecosystems have discovered that a pristine reef has a biomass that is comprised largely of predators, including sharks, snapper and groupers. Sadly, many reef systems around the world today do not have these animals, as they have been fished to dangerously low levels. Every animal plays a vital role in the health of an ecosystem and when individual species are removed, the entire environment breaks down. A healthy ocean is needed for a vibrant planet.

Check natgeo's Instagram Phone photo by @gabrielegalimbertiphoto - Paris, France. Pont Neuf - 
A love padlock is a padlock which sweethearts lock to a bridge, fence, gate, or similar public fixture to symbolize their love. Most of the times sweethearts' names are inscribed on the padlock, and its key is thrown away to symbolize unbreakable love. In the past 15 years love locks have proliferated at an increasing number of locations worldwide.

A couple of years ago, in France, authorities removed 45 tons of padlocks (close to one million locks) from Paris’s Pont des Arts. They say their weight was damaging the structure, and they replace them with plexiglass panels.

Immediately after this Love locks  began appearing in all the other bridges of Paris. Many tourists mistakenly believe this is a longstanding Parisian tradition, not realizing the practice only migrated into Paris in late 2008 after affecting cities in Italy and Asia.  #paris #lovelocks #love #sweethearts #padlock #lovepadlock #lovelock #locks #lock 1478234774270991003_787132

Check natgeo's Instagram Video by George Steinmetz @geosteinmetz  Some 90% of the seafood consumed in the U.S. is imported, mostly in the form of farmed shrimp and salmon, and canned tuna.  This video was taken yesterday at Guolian Aquatic, the biggest shrimp processer in China.  They shell 20k tons of farmed shrimp per year, primarily for export to the U.S. and Europe, but that is starting to change.  Rising incomes in China have allowed a shift in food habits to include more protein, and the domestic shrimp market is booming.  #onassignment for @natgeo

In Namibia they hunt on both sand dunes and gravel plains, searching for beetles and other insects. Their modified tongues can accelerate from 0-60 mph in a hundredth of a seconds. Prey can be snagged in just 20 milliseconds. The white flakes around the animals head are old skin, which is shed regularly. Shot on assignment for @natgeo.

Check natgeo's Instagram Video by @Filipe_DeAndrade | By the end of this adventure we named this area “Natures Buffet.” I saw more predatory behavior in the saltwater marshes of South Carolina than any other environment I’ve filmed in. The dolphin activity was 100% going off. Everything from the ospreys, bald eagles, herons, pelicans and even us as the film crew benefited from the dolphins strand feeding. But even though the hunting was everywhere, that didn’t mean it was easy to film. That’s why it really took us sitting back and observing how this ecosystem works as a whole to be able to capture the dolphin’s predatory evolution.

This is one of the only venomous mammals on Earth. The second lower incisor tooth of this animal is grooved and can be used to deliver a venomous saliva. Hispaniolan solenodons have patches of skin full of apocrine glands on their thighs that are used to communicate with other individuals through scent. Like many species in the Dominican Republic, the most significant threat to this animal is the destruction of its habitat.

Rock art fascinates me. The images last thousands, sometimes tens of thousand of years. And even though we don't share the culture or even the language of the artist, the images still have power. 
This panel is carved into the sandstone of Comb Ridge in Southern Utah. It's part of the new Bears Ears National Monument. The Bears Ears contain over 100,000 archaeological sites.

Check natgeo's Instagram photo by @daviddoubilet BFFs in a night sea. A juvenile jack is a hitchhiker seeking protective cover in the soft tentacles of a jellyfish in a deep channel off Moalboal Philippines. We were diving at night using a large suspended light array to attract creatures from the depths 3000 feet below. The shy jack and jelly pair appeared  at the edge of light for a brief moment before turning back for the deep. The sea in the middle of the night  is an alien universe, many creatures rising from the depths only under cover of darkness to feed. Drifting in the current in this dark world is like diving in a sea of stars. On @natgeo assignment inside the Coral Triangle, Philippines with @JenniferHayesig. #ocean #jellyfish #bff #dream #night #philippines #coraltriangle for #moreocean #followme @daviddoubilet 1477359235381356041_787132
