    Like us, animals are exposed to parasites, bacteria and viruses – the germs which cause disease. How do they survive these attacks ? Recent research and observation have shown that animals use plant and insect substances to treat themselves – not only do they apply things to their skin, they actually treat themselves by feeding on things not normally part of their diets. Capuchin monkeys rub citrus fruit on their fur, caterpillars eat poison hemlock, herbivorous red deer have even been seen chewing the legs off live seabirds. This film takes off around the world to discover how animals use medicine, it questions what notions they have about health and how medical knowledge is passed on from one generation to the next. In doing so, the film also asks what we can learn from animals about med...

Amazing Things You Didn't Know About Venezuela 1. They’ve mustered more Miss World winners than any other nation. South America's fifth most populous country has provided six Miss World winners, putting it ahead of the UK (5), India (5), the US, Jamaica, and Iceland (all 3). Pilín León, winner in 1981, turned on the Christmas lights in Oxford Street that year. Venezuela clearly loves a beauty pageant, as they’ve also served up seven Miss Universe winners, including Irene Sáez, who ran for the presidency in 1998. 2. It’s heaven for wildlife - and home to the world’s largest rodent. According to Conservation International, just 17 countries are considered "megadiverse". Each possesses a vast number of different species – many found nowhere else. And Venezuela is one. Some 23 per cent of reptilian and 50 per cent of amphibian species that inhabit the country are endemic to Venezuela, and few regions are better for a wildlife holiday than Los Llanos. This vast area of savannah, seasonally flooded, is Venezuela’s literal and symbolic heartland. Here, cowboys and humpbacked cebu cattle coexist with teeming birdlife and caiman, capybara (the largest rodent in the world), giant anteater, puma and anaconda. 3. Conservation is pretty important. It’s no good having heaps of wildlife if you don’t look after it, and Venezuela leads the way when it comes to conservation, having designated 53.9 per cent of its territory as protected – more than any other nation. In Britain that figure stands at 28.4 per cent, while the global average is just 14.8 per cent. 4. It’s a dangerous place. Thousands of people have had trouble-free trips to Venezuela, but there are plenty of worrying statistics. It has the second highest number of gun-related deaths in the world (59.13 per 100,000 residents per year), after Honduras, while the capital, Caracas, has a shocking murder rate of 119.87 per 100,000 residents per year – the worst of any major city. 5. And you should think twice before hiring a car. Venezuela is also one of the world’s deadliest places to drive, according to the World Health Organization's figures, with 37.2 road deaths per 100,000 inhabitants per year. Only four countries have a higher death rate: Eritrea, Dominican Republic, Libya and Thailand. The UK is among the 10 safest. 6. Although petrol is incredibly cheap. It’s practically free, in fact. Thanks to a policy of heavy subsidisation, and despite threats by president Nicolas Maduro to hike prices, petrol costs just $0.01 a litre, according to the fuel analyst website globalpetrolprices.com. That's just one per cent of the global average, $0.97. Second on the list is Saudi Arabia, where it costs $0.24 per litre. 7. But Big Macs are rather expensive. Conversely, you can expect to pay $5.25 for the signature McDonald’s hamburger, more than any other nation excluding Sweden, Norway and Switzerland. A Big Mac costs the equivalent of $3.73 in the UK, while four countries (Egypt, Ukraine, Malaysia and South Africa) proffer them for under $2 a pop. 8. Alcohol is banned (sometimes). They enjoy a drink in Venezuela. The Cuba Libre is favoured, while wine is grown in Carora, in the state of Lara. But watch out if there’s an election, when the sale of alcohol is prohibited for up to 21 hours prior to voting. 9. There’s an everlasting lightning storm. 10. It has been independent for 206 years. ================== venezuela facts facts about venezuela interesting facts about venezuela venezuela fun facts fun facts about venezuela venezuela interesting facts caracas venezuela facts venezuelan economy facts venezuelan culture facts venezuela history facts venezuelan food facts venezuela geography facts venezuela healthcare facts ================== Facebook ► https://www.facebook.com/Mega-News-1728374423845386/ Twitter ► https://twitter.com/meganews77 Google+ ► https://plus.google.com/113281215443356264322 Tumblr ► https://meganews77.tumblr.com/ Pinterest ► https://pinterest.com/meganews77/ Reddit ► https://www.reddit.com/user/MegaNews77/ Linkedin ► https://www.linkedin.com/in/mega-news-858b93137 LiveJournal ► http://meganews77.livejournal.com/ Please Like & Subscribe Mega News https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC0P4_2nrwEMw2A1TCsfQYdg https://youtu.be/Vs-yQmgEago

Twitter @juangangel More than 59,000 wild animals are illegally captured each year in Colombia and smuggled to Bogota, a city that has become a hub for the exotic species trade. In 2012 alone, Colombia's environmental police rescued 46,637 illegally trafficked animals, a trade that brings in about 64 billion pesos (about $35 million) a year, according to a report by Colombian daily ADN. Vendors paint the animals in bright colors and declaw them to make them more attractive to buyers, the ADN report highlights. Colombia's birds, snakes, and other exotic species are usually sold as pets, luxury food items, aphrodisiacs, or remedies in alternative medicine. According to ADN, the most frequently trafficked animals outside of Colombia include the orange-chinned parakeet (at least 400 rescued per year in Bogota), much in demand due to its ability to imitate speech, the "icotea" freshwater tortoise (350 rescued a year), and the yellow-crowned parrot (some 320 rescued per year). In one indication of the sheer size of Colombia's illicit wildlife trade, Bogota's main wildlife rehabilitation center reports receiving some 350 animals each month. Only about 15 percent of these are successfully reintegrated back into the wild. The rest stay in captivity, donated to zoos or parks. Not only do the illegally trafficked animals supply a domestic market within Colombia, they are also smuggled to Europe, the United States, and Asia. Worldwide, illegal animal sales garner some $20 billion a year, according to estimates by Interpol. InSight Crime Analysis Exotic animal trafficking is the world's third largest illicit trade after drug and weapons. In Colombia, the trade is particularly well established thanks to the biodiversity of areas like the Eastern Plains and the Amazon, which provide smugglers ready access to animals which fetch a high price in the global black market. Animal smugglers also rely on the same well-established movement corridors used to transport drug shipments, as a 2009 report by Reuters highlighted. Drug traffickers supplement their profits by taxing animal smugglers in exchange for using the same smuggling routes, or may even use the animals to help hide the drug shipments. Not only are animal and drug smuggling routes often the same, but drug leaders often use exotic beasts as power symbols. One Zetas leader, borrowing a page from Pablo Escobar's African hippos, allegedly housed two lions and a tiger Vea Mas información en es.wikipedia.org Juan Gonzalo Angel www.tvagro.tv

It`s Venezuela !!! ... "The Immensity Of Our Plains" One of the most beautiful regions in Venezuela is "los llanos", those huge plains where only the horizon stops your sight. Both, the vegetation and the fauna are full of beauty. Several ecosystems will make a trip to this region an unforgettable one. In this region there are only two very different seasons, where life changes completely: Rainy and dry season. In the first one, the woods, the rivers, the trees show all their beauty. A large part of the region is under the water. In the second one the become yellow and brown, and the dust covers most part of the plains, but that is when all the wildlife converges in the few spots where water is present. It is the season where you can see more birds and animals. The difference between the two seasons is so big, that you can't say that you know the "llanos" if you don't go in both periods. Moving cattle is one of the most important duties in this region, where cattle breeding is the most important economic activity. There are many different animal species. In the rivers and ponds you can find crocodiles and toninas (similar to dolphins), in the land deers, chiguïres (capybaras), jaguars and foxes, on the trees monkeys and birds. Summer (dry season) is the best moment for bird and watchers, because all the animals must go to the few spots where the water is. Transportation in winter (rainy season) is also more difficult because many roads are flooded under water. However in this season is when nature is more spectacular.

Local fishermen refer to it as the “ball cutter” because they’re afraid those teeth might, well … try to steal the family jewels. #7 … Andean Condor (an-dee-un) -- With 10-foot wingspan , this is the largest flying bird in the world. They’re found in the mountainous areas of western South America at elevations up to 18,000 feet. Updrafts at those extreme altitudes allow the birds to travel great distances with only an occasional flap of their wings. #6 … The Living Rock -- Believe it or not, these are not rocks … but living, breathing organisms. Their appearance allows them to avoid predators by blending into the environment, most often beaches in Chile. Each of these creatures possess both male and female organs and are able to breed individually. Sounds like a party. Can you smell what the Living Rock is cooking? #5 … Amazon Horned Frog -- found in freshwater marshes of the Amazon rainforest, they’re just small enough to sit on a tea saucer with their limbs just barely over the rim. They use their small size to their advantage, hiding between shrubbery until they see jump out and feast … but only on something smaller than themselves! #4 … Venezuelan Poodle Moth -- This is a relatively new species of moth discovered in Venezuela in 2009. The insect’s appearance is so bizarre that people thought the discovery was a hoax, before the creature’s existence was confirmed. Relatively little is still known about this species. #3 … Titanoboa (ti-tan-o-bo-ah)-- Or, ‘titanic boa’. In 2009, the fossilized remains gigantic prehistoric snakes were found in the tropics of Northern Colombia. Dating back nearly 60 million years, the fossils revealed a snake that measured 50 feet long and weighed more than a ton. The evidence suggests it would have resembled the modern-day boa constrictor but would’ve spent more time in the water like an anaconda. #2 … Panda Ant -- Found in Chile, this does indeed look like an ant. But this insect actually belongs to the Mutillidae (mew-til-i-dee), which is a family of over 3,000 species of wasps. The females are wingless and are easily mistaken for large, hairy ants. When they turn up with this distinctive black-and-white coloring, they earn the title of Panda Ant -- although they’re neither. It’s still a wasp and is known to have a painful sting. #1 … In 2016, construction workers in Brazil found a huge snake when it slithered out of a cave while crews were building a dam. The predator appeared after a rigged explosion went off. The massive reptile was identified as an anaconda and said to measure 32 feet long and weighed nearly half a ton. The animal was killed at the scene. Had it lived, it might have been crowned the largest snake ever.

A helicopter expedition to three of Venezuela's tabletop mountains: Ptari, Apacará and Amurí. This video shows a combination of the amazing wildlife that can be seen on these rarely visited sky islands and the difficulty of getting there.

Like us, animals are exposed to parasites, bacteria and viruses – the germs which cause disease. How do they survive these attacks ? Recent research and observation have shown that animals use plant and insect substances to treat themselves – not only do they apply things to their skin, they actually treat themselves by feeding on things not normally part of their diets. Capuchin monkeys rub citrus fruit on their fur, caterpillars eat poison hemlock, herbivorous red deer have even been seen chewing the legs off live seabirds. This film takes off around the world to discover how animals use medicine, it questions what notions they have about health and how medical knowledge is passed on from one generation to the next. In doing so, the film also asks what we can learn from animals about medicine.

A weird looking creature, the Poodle Moth was discovered in Venezuela. One of the weirdest moths on earth, it and has become an internet sensation for both it's uniqueness and adorableness. While exploring marine biology and the regional wildlife of Venezuela, Dr Arthur Anker discovered this adorable looking species of moth which is now being called the poodle moth as its popularity is spreading like wildfire around the internet. These images were uploaded to Arthur's flickr page which is linked in the description below. Scientists have identified around 200,000 species of moths so far and believe there may be over 1 million different species in the world. While moths are typically known for eating clothing, most adult moths do not eat at all as many species do not even have mouths and must rely on drinking nector to live. Some people are saying that this has to be some type of wicked photo shop mix of a bird, a dog and a butterfly while others believe that it is real as Dr Anker's flickr page is full of incredible close ups of insects and underwater wildlife that tend to show some pretty unique views that make even some common animals looks very strange.

Venezuela - officially titled Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela (Spanish: República Bolivariana de Venezuela), is a tropical country on the northern coast of South America. It is a continental mainland with numerous islands located off its coastline in the Caribbean Sea. Venezuela possesses recognized borders with Guyana to the east of the Essequibo river, Brazil to the south, and Colombia to the west. Trinidad and Tobago, Grenada, St. Lucia, Barbados, Curaçao, Bonaire, Aruba, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines and the Leeward Antilles lie just north, off the Venezuelan coast. Its size is 916,445 km² with an estimated population of 26,414,816. Its capital is Caracas. The colors of the Venezuelan flag are yellow, blue and red, in that order: the yellow stands for land wealth, the blue for courage, and the red for independence from Spain. A former Spanish colony, which has been an independent republic since 1821, Venezuela holds territorial disputes with Guyana, largely concerning the Essequibo area, and with Colombia concerning the Gulf of Venezuela. In 1895, after the dispute over the Essequibo river border flared up, it was submitted to a "neutral" commission (composed of United Kingdom, USA and Russian representatives and without a direct Venezuelan representative), which in 1899 decided mostly against Venezuela's claim.[4] Venezuela is known widely for its petroleum industry, the environmental diversity of its territory, and its natural features. Venezuela is considered to be among the world's 18 most biodiverse countries,[5] featuring diverse wildlife in a variety of protected habitats. Venezuela is among the most urbanized countries in Latin America;[6][7] the vast majority of Venezuelans live in the cities of the north, especially in the capital Caracas which is also the largest city. Other major cities include Maracaibo, Valencia, Maracay, Barquisimeto and Ciudad Guayana. ( wikipedia )

Los Llanos is a vast plain situated in central Venezuela, among the Andes, the Cordillera de la Costa and Guayané Massif. In the dry season Los Llanos is a living hell, animals survive on a very small brush and forest where the water is full of terrible piranhas. Turtles "morrocoi" (endangered species), alligators, crocodiles, peccaries, armadillos, iguanas and jaguars are also struggling to stay near bushes, which become a heaven within the plain.

Belize. Nestled between two continents, this small but lush Central American country is known for its abundance of nature and wildlife. Find out at: http://www.wanderlust.co.uk/discover-belize Over half the country is covered in forest, making it a perfect home for diverse, rare and exciting species. It’s a birdwatcher’s paradise, with over five hundred species recorded. Among them, the iconic keel-billed toucan, famous for its beak and vibrant plumage. It shares its leafy home with a whole range of fascinating creatures, such as the long-tailed spider monkey and the black howler monkey. If you are staying in one of Belize's eco-lodges your morning alarm clock may be its primeval roar. The forest canopy might be a hive of activity, but there is just as much happening on the ground. The tapir is Latin America’s largest land mammal, and the national animal of Belize. It is shy and secretive but look out for its tracks on forest walks. But for every quirky animal at home in the wilderness of Belize, something all-powerful stalks its shadows. The jaguar. This magnificent predator is Belize's largest cat, and the true king of the jungle. Conservation is one of Belize’s crowning achievements. As well as forests and mountains rich with biodiversity, its shores boast a beautiful coral reef - the second largest in the world, and where you can swim and snorkel with a range of exotic marine life. For real lovers of wildlife and nature, this place is unbeatable. Bursting with life, and home to some of the last real wilderness on earth, Belize is waiting to be explored by lovers of the natural world.
