Bush Dog Speothos venaticus
The Bush Dog is a rare and relatively unknown canid native to the jungles of South America. Its body is squat, and badger-like compared to most canids. What is known about these dogs comes from the study of captive populations and the anecdotal observations of wild Bush Dogs. Their webbed toes indicate a semi-aquatic lifestyle.
I woke up yesterday to find out that we had gained our 100th follower. Guys, we’re flattered. I can’t speak for Kat, but I’m fairly certain that having a large group of strangers on the internet take a general interest in what we do is the closest we’ve ever come to being popular.
More animals to come, stay tuned.

American Badger Taxidea taxus

Cabot’s Tragopan Tragopan caboti
Eurasian Hoopoe Upupa epops
Despite the name, the Eurasia Hoopoe’s range extends into Africa. The name is derived from the bird’s vocalization.
Please forgive the extended hiatus. We’ll be back to something resembling a regular schedule soon enough.

A tropical bird related to nightjars, the frogmouth’s head is as wide as its body. Females are rusty red with sparse white freckling, males are grey with heavy freckling.
