Thanks for your efforts CassioCorradi! Please note that we're interested in information specific to your encounter with this jaguar, rather than generic information. For generic information you can use the reference fields. For example, here's what our faq page says about Habitat: "Habitat: Please state the actual habitat where you photographed the spotting - this information can then be used to track changes in habitat, such as those caused by human intervention or habitat destruction. Again, it is not necessary to state published habitat information here, this can be referenced in the 'reference links' box". I hope this makes things clearer :-)
Thanks for the honor Yasser, and thank you so much for your kind words! I too I am looking forwards to the years to come :-) I hope everyone who stops here will take a little time to read into the fascinating biology of this moth: check the notes and the exchanges in the comments :-) And thanks Leana and Mark!
The Cladocora or Mediterranean stony coral Staghorn is a globular medium calcareous skeleton to over 50 cm in diameter. However, colony shape depends on the depth, the light and the current. The color is brown. Polyps can retract completely into their tubular skeletons, called skips, 4-5 mm wide. It is active day and night and are exposed tentacles to capture prey, which consist of plankton.

For the developers at New York start-up Networked Organisms, smartphones are the butterfly nets of the 21st Century. Their tool, Project Noah, lets people upload photos of plants and wildlife around them, creating a map of the natural world and contributing to scientific research in the process.
Bespectacled scientists of yore would carry around hefty field guides, made up of hundreds of pages of text and photos. But these days, smartphone owners have a lighter option: an app called Project Noah, which aims to help people identify plants and animals as well as collect data from "citizen scientists" about where certain species are located.
Project Noah enables us to be part of a more focused online community where we can learn more about wildlife around us and contribute to scientific research. It pulls participants into deeper, more meaningful engagement by enabling people to go on “missions” to collectively map changes based on sightings.
A modern invention that may also hold the key to saving species in the future. Project Noah is a global study that encourages nature lovers to document the wildlife they encounter, using a purpose built phone app and web community. In addition to the virtual "collection" of species, Project Noah encourages citizen science by linking up with existing surveys including the International Spider Survey and the Global Coral Reef Monitoring Network.
