Insect World

They look like monsters from another planet, but these strange creatures were photographed by  Rundstedt Rovillosom in the Philippines.

At its close-up photography of insects, each species is presented in incredible detail. In his collection are photos of wasps, caterpillars and beetles that seem to us newcomers.

And the head of the caterpillar looks like a cherry. This is the local form of caterpillar with red head.

Mr. Rovillos learned his skills photographing insects as a child, but serious photographers took only 5 years ago.

Finding an insect, I immediately photograph it, I do not touch them and do not get out of their natural habitat. “In the photo: red attractive face and eyes wasps.

Micro World Of Insects

Macro photography is close-up photography of usually very small objects. The classical definition is that the image projected on the “film plane” is close to the same size as the subject. In recent years, the term macro has been used in marketing material to mean being able to focus on a subject close enough so that when a regular 6×4 inch  print is made, the image is life-size or larger. With 35mm film this requires a magnification ratio of only approximately 1:4, which demands a lower lens quality than 1:1. With digital cameras the actual image size is rarely stated, so that the magnification ratio is largely irrelevant; cameras instead advertise their closest focusing distance.

Strange Pets: Ever Heard of Someone Keeping an Anteater as a House Pet?

Ever dreamed of getting yourself a pet that’s just a little bit different from your average cat or dog?

Well, Angela Goodwin, a freelance writer and exotic animal educator from Oregon, USA, has been sharing her home with a pair of Tamandua anteaters called Pua and Stewie for the last three years.

Having been rescued from their native Guyana before an imminent cull, the long-nosed mammals have, says Angela, done very well since moving from their home as baby anteaters.

Speaking highly of their temperament and intelligence, Ms Goodwin says that she finds her anteaters to be very loving little creatures indeed:

“They adapt very well on a personality level.”

Not only that, but Pua and her owner now also share a bed:

“She talked her way into sleeping in bed with me in a couple of weeks … She wanted to sleep hugging my hand.

“Now she likes to lie in the washing machine, but will take naps with me when she feels like it…She will lay over my back or chest like a baby would on their mom.”

Despite Angela’s fondness for her strange little anteaters, she does have a couple of words of warning about their behaviour:

“They can be trained to pee on a mat but their pee smells skunk-like and they can also release a terrible odour when scared.

“They also tend to dribble pee a bit. Kind of like having a giant rat. They can’t help that.”

And if that’s not enough to deter you, Angela also added:

“And they are also very messy eaters”
Not deterred? Plenty of pet insurance companies will compensate in the case of furniture and carpet damage, depending on the cover you choose. It’d be a good idea to look into insuring your prospective anteater with moneysupermarket pet insurance – they’ll compare hundreds of quotes to give you the absolute best deal.

By all accounts, though, ant eaters make very good and rewarding house pets – if, of course, you do your research on how to care for them beforehand.

Known for having unusual dietary requirements, Mrs Goodwin feeds her ant eaters some rather strange concoctions of ground beef heart with silkworm pupae, thyme, spinach, wheat bran, flax seed and vinegar for her ant-loving pets. Yum.

Native to the warmer climes of Central and South American, ant eaters are related to armadillos and sloths – the three main types being giant anteaters, pygmy anteaters and Tamanduas.

Keeping Pua’s tropical origins in mind, Ms Goodwin dresses Pua in little jumpers to make sure she doesn’t catch a cold in Oregon’s cooler climate.

“I started putting little sweaters on Pua and she didn’t seem to mind so now she’s got a whole wardrobe of clothes,” she said.

Snub-Nosed Winter Monkeys

The generic name is derived from the name Roxellanae legendary beauties Roksolana, distinguished by a snub nose. The Golden Snub-nosed Monkey  is an Old World monkey.  It is endemic to a small area in temperate, mountainous forests of central and south-western China. The Chinese name is Sichuan Golden Hair Monkey. It is also widely referred to as the Sichuan Snub-Nosed Monkey. Snow occurs frequently within its range and it can withstand colder average temperatures than any other non-human primates. Its diet varies markedly with the seasons, but it is primarily an herbivore with lichens being its main food source.  It is diurnal and largely arboreal, spending some 97% of their time in the canopy.
