The red panda is a specialised bamboo feeder and has strong, curved and sharp semi-retractile claws standing inward for grasping narrow tree branches, leaves and fruit. Like the giant panda it has a false thumb which is an extension of the wrist bone. When descending a tree, head first, the red panda rotates its ankle to control its descent and is one of the few climbing species to do so. The red panda is territorial and lives on its own except during the breeding season, they only make a few sounds like twittering, tweeting and whistling, and they like sleeping and resting on tree branches or in tree hollows during the early hours of the day and they increase their activity during late afternoon and early evening. They eat mostly bamboo, but they may also eat small mammals, birds, eggs, flowers and berries. The red panda can reproduce when they are about 28 months old, and a few days before they give birth she will start gathering items to make a nest with and has and she will have between one to four cubs. After the birth she will clean the cubs and by doing this she is then able to easily recognise each cub by its own smell. Photograph taken at Selwo Zoo, Estepona, Spain.

The Cassowary is a large flightless bird most closely related to the Emu. Although the Emu is taller, the Cassowary is the heaviest bird in Australia and the second heaviest in the world after its cousin the Ostrich and all three birds are flightless. The Cassowary is covered in dense two quailed black feathers that from a distance looks like hair, these feathers are designed for protection in the birds rainforest habitat, it keeps the bird dry and safe from sharp thorns found on many rain forest plants. The Cassowaries hiss and whistle to communicate and clap their bills or they can rumble when making a threat. These birds are extremely difficult to observe or study in the wild as they are quick to retreat in their thick rain forest home therefore little is known of their natural behaviours. They appear to be most active at dawn and dusk when they are searching for food but they rest in a spot of sun during the day. The Cassowary has been said to be the most dangerous bird in the world because each foot has three toes and has a dagger like claw on the inner toe that is up to 4 inches long, they can slice open any predator or potential threat with a sing kick. The powerful legs helps these birds run up to 31 miles per hour through the dense forest underbrush, they also have the ability to jump nearly 7 feet straight up in the air and are good swimmers. Breeding season is around June to October when the female becomes more tolerant of the males, the male struts in a circle around the female and calls to her in a series of low booms. They stay together for a few weeks until the female lays her eggs, around three to five and they are green in colour. The female moves on and it’s the males responsibility to incubate the eggs, up to about 60 days and look after the chicks when they hatch, they stay with him for about 9 to 10 months when he chases them off to live on their own.

This plant is very hardy as it grows slowly during winter and flowers in June to July, the flower spike it produces can comprise from one to twelve flowers and is a self pollinator. The flowers have large sepal with a central green rib and colour varying from white to pink, the petals are short. The flowers have two pronounced humps on the lateral lobes and they are hairy and similar to the abdomen of a bee, it is also very remarkable as it displays at least four distinct colours in addition to the two colours of the sepal and petals. This is the first time I have seen this very pretty and unusual plant.
