    Kermode or “Spirit” Bear in temperate rainforest – Photo by Kevin Schafer -– @schaferpho @natgeo // I spent a week last month tracking these remarkable white bears along Canada’s spectacular west coast. They are actually a rare white form of the black bear, their coloration a result of a recessive gene in a small, isolated population. There are less than 200 of these bears in existence on islands and adjacent mainland in a region known as the Great Bear Rainforest. In this situation, I wanted a picture that captured not just the animal itself, but the lush, moss-draped world it inhabits. The truth is, I saw this setting first... and then waited two days for a bear to pass through. Happily this female eventually obliged. #Greatbearrainforest #spiritbear #pacificwild #bcwild

    What separates "ugly-cute" from just ugly? 🐶 When it comes to creatures like pugs and blobfish, the blend of ugly and cute is so mysteriously appealing. Let’s take a step back. It’s not hard to figure out why humans are drawn to cute things. The scientific name for this is baby schema: We experience an emotional pull to things with exaggerated features because they remind us of, well, babies. As it turns out, these ugly animals also have baby schema, meaning that we can’t help but be attracted to them even if we’re also repulsed.

    Two years ago, Mark Imhof had the idea to help groom animals in shelters to lift their spirits. Since then, he’s given free haircuts to dozens of adoptable pups in the New York City area, and many of those dogs have found homes with loving families thanks to him. . . . . . #dog #dogsofig #dogsofinstagram #dogs #cute #pet #dogsofinstgram #doggies #littledog #lovelydog #doglife #dogoftheday #ilovedogs #doglover

    Amazon River Dolphins in the flooded forest, Brazil. Photo by Kevin Schafer – @schaferpho @natgeo – It was the last day of a month-long assignment tracking wild Amazon River Dolphins in Brazil. I already had thousands of pictures for the story, but I was haunted by one idea. Before I left home, the editors has told me: “Don’t just send us portraits - show us how these animals live.” This was going to be critical in telling the story of these astonishing animals, land-locked in fresh water for as much as fifty million years. Evolving as did the Amazon basin itself, they have adapted to a very different world than their ocean-going dolphin cousins. For one thing, they must hunt their prey, not in the open ocean, but literally between the roots of trees and in the branches of the flooded forest canopy. (No wonder they developed a flexible spine, quite distinct from marine dolphins which have fused, rigid spines for speed and power.) Yet the question remained: how to capture these dolphins in the trees. On the last day of the assignment, I still wasn’t sure I had the shot I wanted. I had planned to spend that last day underwater, checking other pictures off my list before I headed home. Then, an accident changed everything - a boisterous dolphin smashed my underwater housing - not an act of hostility, just a case of my being in the wrong place at the wrong moment. Either way, my underwater work was suddenly finished. Wondering how to spend the rest of this final day, I paddled out to a spot my assistant had found for me earlier in the month - a watery “path” through the forest that the dolphins often used to reach a different part of the river. It had never panned out before, but this afternoon I got lucky; a trio of dolphins swam through the flooded treetops right in front of me. It was just the sort of picture I had been hoping for, but had just about given up on. In the end, it was an important image for the story and ran full-page in National Geographic. I lost a camera that day, but I got the picture I wanted. So it goes. #boto #amazondolphin #onassignment

    Most of the shearers in @nhmcelroy's photographs have a story about the extremes they’ve gone to in order to protect their animals. Shearer and sheep rancher Robert Irwin's sheep, both his own and the flocks he manages for others, are spread out throughout northern California. On a recent night, the winds around his Lake County, California ranch were blowing up to 50 miles an hour. “Everything was unsettled—the dogs, the sheep, the people,” he said. “We sensed in the air that something bad was going to happen.” When Irwin tried to check on reports of fire at another ranch, he opened the door to see a wall of fire in their path, with flames that shot up to 10 feet high when the wind picked up. “It sounded like a jet engine roaring across a racetrack,” he said. In the days and nights to come, he and his neighbors rallied to action, waking up neighbors in the fire’s path, and transporting animals to safety. They managed to rescue a flock of 530 sheep—”some of them were month-old lambs, still on their moms,” Irwin said—from a ranch in Potter Valley, just before the area was completely evacuated. At time of press, all the sheep were accounted for. Irwin and his wife, Jaime, who is eight months pregnant, were watching the winds closely. “We continue to dodge bullets,” he said. “But this is a good part of the world that still helps their neighbor out.” Tap the link in our bio to read more.

    💪🏽💥 Arms Gainz 💥💪🏽 About a year and a half of gains here for this #transformationtuesday 👊🏽💥 I was chatting this morning with my friend @sethleverett after having a similar conversation these last few days with @nab_fit, and to keep progressing you have to always adjust your training and eating. You have to implement techniques like pre-exhaustion, reduce the weights and learn how to recruit the part of the muscles you're lacking, change up your form, prioritize your training. If you only focus on strength you're going to grow but keep looking the same way, you're not going to correct your imbalances. You're strong body part are going to take over and keep being ahead of you're weaker, you've gotta learn how to isolate the proper areas you're lacking and keep your overpowering muscles out of the movement and often it means reducing the weights but squeezing the $ #!t out of each rep 💪🏽💥😄 THAT'S BODYBUILDING❗️ #StanimalNation #ProgressNotPerfection #Gainz #TeamBodybuildingcom #BodybuildingMotivation __________________________________________ 🚨SAVE 10% OFF your @BODYBUILDINGCOM ORDER WITH CODE: STAN10 __________________________________________ 🆕 Mon compte 🇫🇷 @STANIMAL.FR 🇫🇷 IG video only follow @STANIMAL.NATION 🐾💥 Follow me on 👻Snapchat: @Stanimal9 🐣Twitter: @Stanimal9 Bodyspace: @stanimal9 Facebook: Stanimal 🎬YouTube channel: Stan Imal
