…Hi Everybody… and Goodmorning / -afternoon / – night

For 24-E …

The largest ape on our planet… the Eastern Gorilla.
A very impressive animal, not only due to his size.
In The Netherlands we have a couple of zoo’s who keep them… and thankfully that way this species can be saved from extinction and our childeren, and childerens childeren can be educated by the real animal, alive and kicking, instead of via an image in a historiebook.
It always saddens me that there still are lots of people who don’t give a ugly word about creatures other than themselves… as if we could ever survive if every other lifeform is gone forever…

Have a splendid, ♥-warming ABC-wednes-day / – week!

…Hi Everybody… and Goodmorning / -afternoon / – night

For 24-B:

A creature that gives lots of people the creeps I guess… not me though, I find them very interesting.
In my hometown zoo we have quit an extensive number of them… 24 to be exact, all males because there are lots of them and they want to prevent growth of that numbers for a while.
Generallt speaking one could say that there are 2 kinds…
one kind is mostly a herbivor and eats meat  etc and is quit small in size
the other one is much larger in size and does not eat any meat at all, just fruit and vegetables.

The little ones… we in The Netherlands call “vleermuizen”  (English = Bat)
The large ones… we in The Netherlands call “vleerhonden” (English = Flying Fox)
As we don’t have the little ones and as they are related to the big ones, I thought it would not be a big problem that the English name for this creature does not start with a B…  It looks exactly like a Bat, only much larger.

 

 

I’ve tried to catch them in flight, that prooved to be very difficult but his photo is acceptable to show you, isn’t it?
