View natgeo's Instagram Robertclarkphoto The #NakedMolerat is an extraordinary mammal, they are coldblooded, No other known #mammal is.
They live in an underground tunnel complexes in colonies of hundreds led by a queen, they live in hives, much like bees. For several years scientists thought they didn't get cancer.
And now it seems that they can survive for 18 minutes with no oxygen. No oxygen.
Generally, they can run their cells on glucose, the usual way of mice, humans and all other mammals. That process requires oxygen,  which comes from breathing.
But mole rats can switch to a different kind of biochemical process that uses fructose, the sugar in fruit and high fructose corn syrup which needs almost no oxygen.
The mole rat falls a suspended animation, with a much lower heart rate and breathing.
Other mammals, like people and mice, can metabolize fructose without oxygen, only in a very limited way.
Mole rats evolved this ability because the tunnels they live in can be low in oxygen. 1500454040420272922_787132

View natgeo's Instagram photo by @chamiltonjames / Charlie Hamilton James - bison in Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming. Grand Teton National Park doesn’t have as many bison as its closer larger neighbour Yellowstone National Park, but a small population persist here. They spend the harsh winter using their enormous heads and powerful necks to plough the snow in pursuit of edible plants beneath the snow. This image was taken on a remote camera back in December - a camera I recovered today after the snow finally melted and revealed it. Shot on assignment for National Geographic Society 1500375486231897148_787132

Two Years ago the Yemeni crisis took a deadly turn. According to the United Nations, 16,200 people have been killed in Yemen since 2015 including 10,000 civilians. The humanitarian situation in what was already one of the world’s poorest nations, is now, after Syria, the most critical on the planet, with 20% of Yemenis severely food insecure.

Here photographed the centre of Shibam in Wadi Hadramout province, entireymud-built and listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage site for its high-rise mud-brick buildings. UNESCO has voiced concern over the damage inflicted to this great Islamic city. In April 2009, four Koreans tourists were blown apart by a suicide bomber taking just such a photo

View natgeo's Instagram Video by @bertiegregory. Giant otters are an extremely social species living groups of up to 20 individuals. Communication within their family group is important but perhaps more important, is communication between family groups. Why? Because, an adult giant otter needs to eat about 2kg/4lbs of fish every single day so maintaining access to good fishing is vital. As a result, a significant amount of their day is spent hauling out on the river banks in their territory, urinating and defecating on the floor before dancing and sliding around in it. What a life! Shot for @Stevewinterphoto, @natgeo and @natgeowild. Follow @bertiegregory for more wildlife adventures! 1500056825554092463_787132

View natgeo's Instagram Photo @ladzinski / A baby #WhiteRhino, adorably grazing at sunrise in the dry African #savanna. It's small little keratin horn is already beginning to develop, a key feature for defense and foraging. Rhino's are living relics, they have been roaming the earth for millions of years, survived ice ages and prehistoric times when predators like giant hyena and crocodile roamed the earth. Through all of this, their biggest threat in this long history of survival is poaching by man. Let's hope that we can continue to make better decisions when it comes to the senseless rhino horn trade so species like this can continue on. 1499978102930742610_787132

View natgeo's Instagram Photo by @stephenwilkes: Day To Night, Grand Canyon National Park. 
While other images from my Day to Night series have proven to be quite challenging, this image was made even more complicated by sheer logistics. How would I create an image that showed one of the most photographed places in the world in a completely unique way? My goal was to create an image that showed the majesty and vastness of the Grand Canyon, incorporating a human scale and narrative within the scene. I photographed from the top of the Desert View Watchtower at the South Rim - in the late summer so that I could capture the summer storms - where my team and I worked for 27 hours scanning this amazing vista for all the unique moments from Day to Night. The long hours paid off and I was able to capture a single bolt of lightning just before the storm retreated into the canyon.

View natgeo's Instagram Photo by @FransLanting “Rebirth” I share this in celebration of Earth Day. New forests of coastal redwoods are growing tall again close to where I live in Santa Cruz, California. They were nearly wiped out in the 19th century when forests were clearcut for the construction boom in San Francisco. California’s oldest state park was established in 1902 in the Santa Cruz Mountains to save the last giants. To create this image, I used hidden strobes to illuminate a cathedral of majestic redwood trees. To learn more about my creative techniques for plant photography, watch my video @FransLanting.

Because every day should be #earthday...
Piazza San Marco (St. Mark’s Place) in Venice during the seasonal flooding called Acqua Alta (high water). That iconic square is the lowest place in Venice, and becomes deceptively beautiful when flooded. Acqua Alta is caused by when seasonal rain, astronomical tides and strong winds combine to interfere with the water outflow from the lagoon. The first record of this phenomenon was in the year 782 and it has been documented ever since, with the record level in 1966 of 6.4 feet.  Human activity has accelerated natural causes: subsidence (natural sinking of soil level) and rising sea levels. Taken on assignment for @natgeo on “Vanishing Venice.” For more images of the world and its people, follow me @jodicobbphoto. #earthday #Venice 1499349785638679683_787132

In villages around Alaska, winter is arriving later than usual and rushing into spring. The rising ocean temperatures are decreasing the offshore ice and slush that have acted as a storm buffer for the villages in the past. Last winter had no offshore ice at all. Alaskans are debating relocation and have the big storms to consider. According to Robert E. Jensen, a research hydraulic engineer at the Army Corps of Engineers Research and Development Center, storms on Alaska’s west coast can carry the force of a Category 1 hurricane, but the diameter can be up to 10x greater, affecting a larger area and lasting longer. #everydayclimatechange #ECC #actonclimate #climatechangeisreal 1499000961120558326_787132

Nature is perfection. It gives us the air we breathe and the water we need for all life. 
I am working on a @natgeo Jaguar story. Here is Scarface running after a caiman which he did not get this time. Jaguars are the 3rd largest of the big cats. Found from US / Mexico border to northern Argentina. Jaguars have rebounded in this area where 95% of the land is privately owned. In the past many ranchers would kill the cats when they ate their cattle. Today in this area tourism brings in much more money to the local economy than cattle ranching. So the jaguar population is increasing. But revenge killings of jaguars happen close to this area and all throughout the jaguars range. Also poaching for skins, bones and teeth is growing for the first time since the 1970’s to feed the demand for Asian Traditional Medicine and luxury items from endangered species. “When the buying stops, the killing can too.” @wildaid @bertiegregory

My first story with big cats was the 1st @natgeo Jaguar story 20 years ago! It has changed my life working with the magical and magnificent cats of the world. Animals have emotions just like we have-kids hang out and play like these 2 cubs.. Forests provide us with up to 50% of the oxygen we breathe - oceans the rest. They give us 75% of the fresh water.
If we can save the forest of the Amazon and other areas in Central and South America for the JAGUAR and Puma. The forests of Central Africa for the leopard, lion, elephants etc. And the forests of South Asia for the Tigers and Leopards. If you save the top predator in any ecosystem you save everything that lives with them.
So if - We Save Big Cats we can help Save Ourselves.  Please visit CauseAnUproar.org to find out other ways to become involved to save big cats!
