A sub-species of the broader family of leopards roaming across Africa and Asia, the Persian leopard (Panthera pardus saxicolor) numbers between 800 and 1,000 individuals, according to the International Union for Conservation of Nature and is under threat due to poaching, habitat loss and fragmentation, and diminishing prey. Why is this particular species of leopard so important?

They have two incisors in the upper and lower jaw which grow continually and must be keep short by gnawing. Most rodents are small though the capybara can weigh up to 45 kg . ---- The lagomorphs comprise two families, Leporidae , and Ochotonidae . Though they can resemble rodents, and were classified as a superfamily in that order until the early 20th century, they have since been considered a separate order. They differ from rodents in a number of physical characteristics, such as having four incisors in the upper jaw rather than two. ---- The order Erinaceomorpha contains a single family, Erinaceidae, which comprise the hedgehogs and gymnures.

Their bizarre appearance can be startling to some, making them the subject of many urban legends including a 2004 email hoax with the infamous picture of soldiers in Iraq holding two fighting camel spiders. They live in warm and arid habitats, and are omnivorous, primarily feeding on ground dwelling arthropods such as darkling beetles and termites. But they have also been known to feed on snakes, rodents and as seen in this video, small lizards. The male camel spider flings the female on his back to transfer sperm and fertilize the eggs. The female then lays up to 200 eggs, typically only producing one brood of offspring a year. Compared to other invertebrates, the camel spider is fast on land with a top speed estimated at 10mph, approximately 1/3 as the fastest human sprinter. Although relatively harmless, I would still not like to cross paths with this beast straight out of a 50's b-horror movie.

From seriously scary insects … to the critically endangered pangolin … here are 20 of the strangest creatures in Africa Subscribe to Epic Wildlife http://goo.gl/6rzs5u Let's Connect -- http://www.epicadamwildlife.com/ -- http://www.facebook.com/epicadamwildlife -- http://www.twitter.com/epicwildlife -- http://gplus.to/epicwildlife Ankole Watusi Horns (ang-kole watusi) Originating in Africa, Ankole Watusi are considered medium-sized cattle, weighing between 900 to 1,600 pounds. But there’s nothing medium-sized about their horns …. They’re huge! They can reach up to 8 feet from tip to tip … experts say they’re used for self-defense. These animals have served as food and currency among African tribes. Tribal status was also connected with the animals. Cattle with the largest horns were claimed by the king and considered sacred. The breed is often referred to as the ‘cattle of kings’. Mandrill These Old World Monkeys are known to live in very large groups, to to 800 individuals … and they can get pretty big, with males weighing more than 100 pounds -- that makes them the world’s largest monkeys. While they have some impressive physical characteristics like canines almost 2 inches long, they’re best known for their distinctive facial colorations. That is usually exhibited as a red stripe down the center of the muzzle, blue ridges protruding outward, and red lips and nostrils. Gerenuk (gair-uh-nook) The word means “giraffe-necked” in Somali, not difficult to understand why. These are antelope that are able to balance themselves on their hind legs to feed from branches and vegetation their shorter-necked relatives can’t reach. That long neck gives it the nickname, “giraffe gazelle” … but they’re really antelopes. When they stand on their hind legs to feed off tree branches, they can stand more than 6.5 feet tall! They’re mostly found in Kenya, Ethiopia and Tanzania (tan-zuh-NEE-uh). Shoebill As you might guess, this bird’s name is inspired by its massive bill, which is shaped not unlike a shoe. In addition to that imposing look, these creatures can be physically imposing as well. They can reach a height over 5 feet and a wingspan more than 8.5 feet. They’re native to swamplands from Sudan to Zambia. Although they’re often referred to as storks, it’s true relation to other birds is still a mystery. Okapi (oh-KAH-pee) You’d almost swear that someone crossbred a giraffe with a zebra and a donkey is its own animal and lives in the tropical rainforests of the Democratic Republic of Congo. Despite the zebra-like horizontal markings, the Okapi’s closest existing relative is the giraffe … you can kind of tell that from the elongated neck. The Okapi’s odd coloration is thought to help the animal better camouflage itself among foliage and vegetation. Before it was first described by British zoologists in 1901, the Okapi was thought to be a mythical creature … referred to as the African Unicorn! Armoured Ground Cricket The name is a little misleading. Although these insects do appear armored, they’re not related to true crickets, which belong to another family. This non flying species can grow to about 2 inches … and that spiky exoskeleton is a type of defense mechanism. But it’s not their only one. They can squirt a fluid through their armor called a ‘hemolymph’ … which is like an insect’s version of blood. It can be toxic predators. They can also use their powerful jaws, which are known to inflict a painful gash. They’re also known as a pest in Southern Africa, causing crop losses approaching 40 percent. Pangolin (PANG-guh-lin) This is said to be the only mammal known in the world that is covered in scales. These critters are found in Asia in addition to Africa … and tend to grow close to 40 inches long. The scales are made out of keratin, the same material that makes up your fingernails. And they’re used for protection when the animal rolls up into a ball. The behavior is similar to that of armadillos, with which they’re often confused … but they’re not related. New evidence has shown that pangolins are more closely related to the Carnivora, which includes wolves and bears. Did you know that Pangolins are the most illegally trafficked animals in the world?

The pyramids stand up to 100 feet tall … and the oldest buildings are thought to date back to around 720 BC. Experts note that all the the pyramids bear decorations that display the influences of ancient Egypt, Greece and Rome … and say the area’s most impressive structures are found at the necropolis of Meroe. While smaller in size than their Egyptian counterparts, the Nubian pyramids have a similar shape, rising from a foundation to a narrow point. But some of these pyramids have strange flat tops … that was a byproduct of explorers who pillaged the during the 19th century and reduced some sections to rubble. Machu Picchu -- This famous lost city lies almost 8,000 feet above sea level in the Andes Mountains of southern Peru ... and can only be accessed by train or a four day trek. Machu Picchu was built in the 15th century, possibly as an estate for an Incan emperor. It was abandoned around the time of the Spanish conquest. Although locals were aware of the city’s existence, it remained unknown to the Spanish during that period. It remained largely unknown to the world until 1911 when US historian Hiram Bingham brought it to the world’s attention. Machu Picchu was named one of the New Seven Wonders of the World in 2007. Nazca Lines These well known ancient geoglyphs were found in the Nazca Desert of Peru … and were first referenced in print in 1553 by a Spanish conquistador. The largest figures measure up to 370 feet long … and the style ranges from simple to complex. Simple lines and geometric shapes give way to designs of humans and animals, to shapes resembling trees and flowers. While experts have determined the geoglyphs were created by the Nazca culture between 500 BC to 500 AD, there are still various theories as to what purpose the designs fulfilled. Some sources indicate the patterns may have held a religious significance of some sort. Contrary to common belief, you don’t need to be in an airplane to view the lines and figures … they can be seen from surrounding foothills. Rosetta Stone This famous artifact was discovered by a French soldier in 1799 during the Napoleonic Wars in Egypt. In 1801, British forces defeated the French in Egypt and took the massive stone into their possession. The stone was carved in 196 BC, with three scripts being used in Egypt at the time -- Ancient Egyptian hieroglyphics used for important documents … demotic (dih-MOT-ik), which was a common script … and Ancient Greek, used by Egyptian rulers of the time. All three scripts describe a decree that was issued on behalf of King Ptolemy (TOL-uh-mee) V. It took at least 20 years before the scripts could be transliterated. The Rosetta Stone’s discovery led to the decipherment of hieroglyphics, insight to ancient Egyptian history, and the field of modern field of Egyptology. It’s been on display in the British Museum since 1802, and is the most visited artifact there.

High in the mountains of northeastern Iraq’s Kurdistan region, wildlife conservationist Hana Ahmed Raza and a team of researchers with the non-governmental organization Nature Iraq are working to protect the ghostlike Persian leopard. A sub-species of the broader family of leopards roaming across Africa and Asia, the Persian leopard (Panthera pardus saxicolor) numbers between 800 and 1,000 individuals, according to the International Union for Conservation of Nature and is under threat due to poaching, habitat loss and fragmentation, and diminishing prey. Why is this particular species of leopard so important? As Raza points out in the video, “The Persian leopard is the only remaining predator in the [Kurdistan] ecosystem,” and the health of the ecosystem depends on the presence of large predators to thrive.

A high walled compound a few km from Amadiye in Iraqi Kurdistan is the beginning of one of Saddam Hussein's residences, lying in ruins. The compound walls must be about 2 to 3 km square, and included an artificial lake and apparently a wildlife 'sanctuary'. I'll eventually upload photos to my site at http://www.thisotherworld.co.uk
