Mountain Bumble Bee spotted by LaurenZarate San Cristóbal, Chiapas, Mexico 21 minutes ago

This species is a Pine-Oak Mountain Bumble Bee, found from central Mexico through Central America. It is a large Bumble Bee, just over 2 cm with very long hair. The top of the thorax is all black, no stripes. There are bright yellow patches on the sides of the thorax and the upper abdomen. This species is very beautiful, with golden orange hair along the sides of the yellow on the abdomen and dark wings. New queens often come into the house in the fall to hibernate.

Grey Nurse Shark spotted by Neil Ross NSW, Australia 40 minutes ago

The "grey nurse shark" is the first species of shark I ever saw, and I was only 6 or 7 years old. It was the stuff of nightmares, with its massive size and razor-sharp teeth, and as a child I was terrified of them. That was at Taronga Park Zoo in Sydney, and they had an aquarium with sharks and other marine creatures. But as I grew up I also saw them at the beach, and it was this beach to be precise - North Avoca Beach. I remember being told to count the fins if I ever saw them breaking the water, and if there were two (dorsal) fins, or three including the long tail, then it was a grey nurse and therefore harmless! Any fear I had of them had long-since-passed, and my siblings and I wear water babies and totally fearless of anything other than being dumped by the odd humongous wave. Despite its fearsome appearance and strong swimming ability, it is a relatively placid and slow-moving shark with no confirmed human fatalities. That's not bad for an animal that's related to the great white shark Carcharodon carcharias. To quote my niece who dives with these sharks regularly... "they are so placid, big and scary looking, but the old Labrador of the sea." This is a beautiful and fascinating species, and the reference links provide tons of information. Full credit goes to Byron Diver of DIVE Imports Australia, Erina, New South Wales, Australia, for this spotting and photo. Thanks, Byron.

2019 National Moth Week! July 20-28



Project Noah partners with National Moth Week each year to celebrate the beauty and life cycles of moths.



Moths play a key role in ecosystems as pollinators and as a food source for nocturnal insectivores like owls, birds and bats. Our Moths of the World Mission celebrates the diversity and ecological importance of moths. Join a global citizen science project to help identify all moths from July 20-28!
