The full story: I went outside to go for a walk, picked up one of my boots, and started to put it on. They’re almost too small, so I had to do some wiggling to get my foot in. I often don’t wear socks in my shoes, so yell at me if you want but I think it was a good thing in this case. My foot was most of the way in when it touched something furry. I froze, trying to figure out what it was. It didn’t move either. Then I yanked my foot back out and looked inside, and there was a little rodent in there! It's probably a baby rat. I pinched the top of the boot shut before it could get out and called to my mom that I needed my camera right now, and I probably shouldn’t come in the house because I was holding a boot with a rat in it. She brought my camera out and I took some adorable pictures of it before it ran back into the toe. Then I dumped it out and it ran away.

On 30.12.2021, I went on a trip to Riverstone ,Sri Lanka..... I studied about all the point endemic animals and got some informations from some university students about the bio diversity of the site before went there.....Actually ,it was a family trip.....Among all the cousins,I was the one and only one who wanted to see the point endemics or anyone that I would be interested....I went there around 1 p.m and searched everwhere that I could.... Lastly found this lovely and cool lizard..... After saw it ,I was very happy and I kept looking at it around 15 minutes .....So,I got few photos(Used NIKON P950) and suddenly started to rain there.....Then,I said good bye to this cool friend and started the hike again !!!!

This is the first Ceratophora tennentii that I saw and I love to observe these ones again in nearby future!!!!!

Ant attacked the scorpion suddenly and abducted one young scorpion. This happened while I was photographing. As the scorpion was exposed to open place for long time and the ant must have siezed the opportunity to hunt when it sensed the young scorpions. I'd observed the ant closely passing by couple of times before attacking. Maybe it tried to assess the situation on those instances?

Hello!!
I’m fairly new to the app but I’d like some help identifying what kind of fossil and species, (if it can be identified) it is.
It was purchased at Traders village in Grand Prairie Texas from a local vendor. As far as I’m concerned he didn’t know what species it was but was saying a great white shark but it’s clearly not because of the shape and size. If any one know more about this could you please help?
