Gorgeous images of animals and nature

Kids love animals and nature, right? So, it’s only reasonable to share some gorgeous animal and nature photos.

AuroraBorealis

Aurora Borealis –  a natural light display in the sky particularly in the Arctic and Antarctic regions, caused by the collision of energetic charged particles with atoms in the high altitude atmosphere. That’s fancy science talk for “purdy”.

If birds lived in Mordor, they’d look like this bird in the salty Lake Natron in Tanzania.

ChinaZhangjiajieNationalForestPark

In real estate, it’s all about three things: location, location, and location. These formations are in China’s Zhangjiajie National Forest Park.

A very large snail is not intimidated by a fierce but tiny dog.

Dragonfly

The dragonfly has a face only a mother could love. Plus, he needs a shave.

GlassGemCorn

Glass Gem corn. It’s a thing! Purdy.

Jaguars

Eeny meeny miny moe, catch a leopard by the toe. Not!

MtEtnaSmokeRing

Smoke ring rising above Mt. Etna. Seriously.

PeruParrot

Who’s a pretty bird?

PigSwimming

Pigs can’t fly, but apparently they can swim.

SheepPrank

Tired of the rancher’s relentless teasing, the sheep took matters into their own, er, hands.

tamandua

The tamandua is a type of anteater. They lick up insects with their elongated snouts and rounded tongues, which can reach up to 16 in. in length. To avoid puncturing their palms with their sharp claws, they walk on the outsides of their “hands.”

tiger

Even wet, there is a majesty about tigers.
