The Kuril Lake carries you into an alternative reality where wild animals and human beings co-exist peacefully side by side. It is hard to believe but female bears might trust some local long-livers so that they leave their one year old cubs with them when fishing. Leaving their offspring with people in the Kuril Lake is safer than with other bears (especially male species who are not against an intragroup cannibalism). Ecotourism is tending to be more and more popular with a larger number of travellers who prefer watching bears in their natural habitat rather than in cages. . . . . #kamchatka #kamchatkafreeridecommunity #neverstopexploring #lesphotographes #letsgosomewhere #mobilemag #livefolk #liveauthentic #wanderlust #wanderfolk #travelblogger #traveldeeper #travelingram #vscocam #vscorus #vscoaward #vscogoodshot #vscojournal #artofvisuals #picstitch #pursuepretty #wonderful_places #welltraveled #exklusive_shot #visualsoflife #passionpassport #top_masters #alwaysgo # #

I'm seriously challenged

I'm seriously challenged by the winter weather in Melbourne at the moment. But I am so grateful to have a warm home and roof over my head. I have to focus on the positive when winter bites Like this moment in Byron The sun was out, the warmth was welcoming and Helen and I were off to Splendour. I know those sunshine moments are just around the corner, so I'm holding on to that promise. Today I'm posting a warm and happy memory and reminding myself that every season has its purpose and beauty - just like the changing seasons of our lives. #australia #aussie_photos #australia_shots #selfie #portrait #splendour #byron #byronbay #festival #festivalready #photographer #melbournegirl #travel #travelpics #travelphotography #igers #instagood #instadaily #winter #wintervibes #melbourneweather #positivevibes #positivity #seasons #passionpassport #creative #wanderlust #welltravelled #writersofinstagram

Driving from Bovec to the

Driving from Bovec to the seaside town of Piran was long, but a different and nice change of scenery from the mountains, lakes and rivers! Although Slovenia has a small coastline, what it does have is beautiful! Cute buildings line Piran and it was nice taking a short stroll! > > > > #slovenia #loveslovenia #visitslovenia #piran #piranwalls #roadtrip#hiking #adventure #traveling #vacation #travelgram #wanderlust #photooftheday #ig_photooftheday #passionpassport #optoutside #travelphotography #travel #europe2017 #visitbled #beautifuldestinations #slovenia #slovenia360 #igslovenia #earthoutdoors #exploreslovenia

An extract on #passionpassport

The word "amphibian" is derived from the Ancient Greek term (amphbios), which means "both kinds of life", meaning "of both kinds" and meaning "life". The term was initially used as a general adjective for animals that could live on land or in water, including seals and otters. Traditionally, the class Amphibia includes all tetrapod vertebrates that are not amniotes. Amphibia in its widest sense (sensu lato) was divided into three subclasses, two of which are extinct: Subclass Lepospondyli (small Paleozoic group, which may actually be more closely related to amniotes than Lissamphibia) Subclass Temnospondyli (diverse Paleozoic and early Mesozoic grade) Subclass Lissamphibia (all modern amphibians, including frogs, toads, salamanders, newts and caecilians) Salientia (frogs, toads and relatives): Jurassic to present6,200 current species in 53 families Caudata (salamanders, newts and relatives): Jurassic to present652 current species in 9 families Gymnophiona (caecilians and relatives): Jurassic to present192 current species in 10 families The actual number of species in each group depends on the taxonomic classification followed. The two most common systems are the classification adopted by the website AmphibiaWeb, University of California, Berkeley and the classification by herpetologist Darrel Frost and the American Museum of Natural History, available as the online reference database "Amphibian Species of the World". The numbers of species cited above follows Frost and the total number of known amphibian species is over 7,000, of which nearly 90% are frogs. With the phylogenetic classification, the taxon Labyrinthodontia has been discarded as it is a polyparaphyletic group without unique defining features apart from shared primitive characteristics. Classification varies according to the preferred phylogeny of the author and whether they use a stem-based or a node-based classification. Traditionally, amphibians as a class are defined as all tetrapods with a larval stage, while the group that includes the common ancestors of all living amphibians (frogs, salamanders and caecilians) and all their descendants is called Lissamphibia. The phylogeny of Paleozoic amphibians is uncertain, and Lissamphibia may possibly fall within extinct groups, like the Temnospondyli (traditionally placed in the subclass Labyrinthodontia) or the Lepospondyli, and in some analyses even in the amniotes. This means that advocates of phylogenetic nomenclature have removed a large number of basal Devonian and Carboniferous amphibian-type tetrapod groups that were formerly placed in Amphibia in Linnaean taxonomy, and included them elsewhere under cladistic taxonomy. If the common ancestor of amphibians and amniotes is included in Amphibia, it becomes a paraphyletic group. All modern amphibians are included in the subclass Lissamphibia, which is usually considered a clade, a group of species that have evolved from a common ancestor. The three modern orders are Anura (the frogs and toads), Caudata (or Urodela, the salamanders), and Gymnophiona (or Apoda, the caecilians). It has been suggested that salamanders arose separately from a Temnospondyl-like ancestor, and even that caecilians are the sister group of the advanced reptiliomorph amphibians, and thus of amniotes. Although the fossils of several older proto-frogs with primitive characteristics are known, the oldest "true frog" is Prosalirus bitis, from the Early Jurassic Kayenta Formation of Arizona. It is anatomically very similar to modern frogs. The oldest known caecilian is another Early Jurassic species, Eocaecilia micropodia, also from Arizona. The earliest salamander is Beiyanerpeton jianpingensis from the Late Jurassic of northeastern China. Authorities disagree as to whether Salientia is a superorder that includes the order Anura, or whether Anura is a sub-order of the order Salientia. The Lissamphibia are traditionally divided into three orders, but an extinct salamander-like family, the Albanerpetontidae, is now considered part of Lissamphibia alongside the superorder Salientia. Furthermore, Salientia includes all three recent orders plus the Triassic proto-frog, Triadobatrachus.
