The full-grown bumble-bee bat (Craseonycteris thonglongyai), at about the size of a bumble bee,is considered one of the smallest mammals on the planet. But its comparatively wide wingspan enables the animal to hover and cover long distances, which it navigates, like other bats, with echolocation. The bumble-bee bat inhabits only a certain area of Thailand and Myanmar and is listed as “vulnerable” on the IUCN Red List, because the population of less than 10,000 has been disturbed by human activity in the limestone caves and bamboo deforests where they reside.
My grandpa has Alzheimer’s so he has no idea who my grandma is but everyday for the last three or four months he brings her in flowers from their garden and asks her to run away with him and be his wife and everyday she says she already is and everyday the smile my grandpa gets on his face is the most beautiful heartfelt thing I have ever seen.

…is a species of stag beetle that is native to the island of New Guinea in Indonesia. L.adolphinae ranges greatly in color and individuals can sport green, gold, brown, and blue coloration. Despite their ‘menacing’ appearance L.adolphinae are not carnivorous and feed mostly on tree sap and rotting fruits. Male L.adolphinae sport two large mandibles which are used for fighting other males. These fights will usually be over mating rights but may also be over food. Like other stag beetles L.adolphinae larvae are deposited into rotting wood where they will develop until they pupate.

….is a species of stag beetle that is found throughout the Eastern United States, and is most common in the Piedmont. D.brevis is distinguished from the similar D.parallelus due to its rounded eltyra and the number of internal teeth it has on each mandible. Dorcus brevis is also widely considered by many to be one of the rarest lucanids in North America.
Major males will use their ‘large’ mandibles in competition with each other. These fights will usually over mating rights or a food source. Like all stag beetle larvae, the larvae of D.brevis is laid in decaying stumps or logs, the stump/log will be the larva’s food source until it pupates.
