by @jennifersarre Your face when someone says your best friend is their best friend 🀨 A silverback mountain gorilla from the Virunga National Park, in Rwanda. These endangered apes have thicker fur than their lowland cousins meaning they can withstand cooler temperatures. Mountain gorilla survive on a diet primarily made up of leaves, shoots and roots. . . . .

by @mogenstrolle The gelada is a species of Old World monkey found only in the Ethiopian Highlands. They have short and stumpy fingers which make them adept rock climbers, although they do spend most of their time sitting down picking and eating the grass. . . . . .

Getting in the weekly yoga πŸ‘Œ by @annastelloophotography Grey seals are found on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean. On the larger side, the males in particular, have large snouts and can grow up to 2.7m long. . . . .

by @michalrichterphoto When you see your ex at the supermarket 😬 The Eurasian wryneck is a migratory bird from the woodpecker family and can be found at different times of the year throughout Europe, Asia and Africa. Perfectly camouflaged for life in the trees, the Eurasian wryneck also sometimes feigns death to escape predators. . . . .

In formation πŸ™Œ These large, flightless birds are distinctive in their appearance, with a long neck and legs, and can run for a extended periods at speeds up to 70 km/h, the fastest land speed of any bird! by @bennberkeley @kariega.game.reserve . . . . .

by @simon_beedie The Atlantic puffin is definitely more glamorous than your usual sea bird πŸ’Ž Often nicknamed "the clown of the sea" or "sea parrot" due to it's bright colouring and funny waddle, the Atlantic puffin is a well-loved character. They spend most of the year out at sea, and return to land in spring to breed in massive colonies, often to the same place where they hatched as chicks. . . . .

by @nicosonnabend When your caller ID says 'Tortoise' 😳 The European hare is widely spread across Europe and Asia. They are usually nocturnal with the a few exceptions including spring mating season when they are frequently seen in daylight. Able to run up to 70 km/h (43 mph), the European hare can likely outrun most animals. . . . .

by @jimmyreidphotography Feeling fancy? This spiny flower mantis is. These come in a variety of colours, but are usually greenish. Their large wings have eye spots which serve to confuse potential predators. Although known as predators themselves, there's always something or someone higher up on the food chain. . . . .

by @trollpwnde All the green, all the time! πŸ‘ Two, aptly named, green bee-eaters take a break on a tree. It's buzzy work, eating as many bees as these birds do. Bee eating doesn't sound very appetising, but these clever birds remove any stings before swallowing their prey. . . . .

by @goeddelphotography We feel ya buddy! 🦊 This stunning red fox, photographed in Yellowstone National Park, is the largest of the true foxes. Though bigger than their cousins, they're very agile and can jump up to 2 metres high! . . . .

by @mufasashah "When in the valley of giants don't forget to look up in awe. These trees have been here longer than most of us have been alive." This amazing shot was captured in Yosemite National Park. Listed as a world heritage site in 1984, the park is home to a diverse range of plant, insect and animal life. . . . .

Kariega, Eastern Cape, South Africa

What a long neck you have! πŸ¦’ There are several theories as to why giraffes have the longest necks in the animal kingdom. Some say natural selection is the cause. Giraffes fight with their necks and those with longer necks could be more successful 'neckers'. It could also be to do with food availability. Individuals who can reach higher can access food and essential nutrients that those lower down cannot.
