Der KPz Leopard. Die #Leopard Familie in Ihrer Entwicklungsgeschichte hat es immer geschafft, mit Ausnahme weniger Details, der Zeit und Möglichkeiten entsprechende Lösungsansätze zu integrieren, die denn einzelnen KPz zu einer ausgereiften und verlässlichen Plattform machten. Image
Kein #Panzer dieser Welt stellt jedoch eine #Wunderwaffe dar, die allein auf sich gestellt jeden Gegner aufhalten kann. Das galt in den Anfängen wie auch heuzutage. Ein Panzer allein ist nichts wert was man im aktuellen Konflikt häufig auf beiden Seiten beobachten kann.
Die Hauptstärken eines #Kampfpanzers (KPz) sind in der Reihenfolge: Beweglichkeit, Feuerkraft und Panzerschutz. Keine #Panzerung und #Feuerkraft kann einen #KPz retten wenn er die #Mobilität verliert. ImageImage

On #WorldEnvironmentDay2023 sharing my top 5 #Wildlife destinations. A thread with photos by @shranjan

1) Corbett - The #beauty of #Corbett lies in its montane #river valleys, majestic Sal #forests and expansive #grasslands teeming with #wildlife.

@ReserveCorbett #Dhikala ImageImageImageImage
2) Tadoba - It has transformed from a little known forest in the 90’s to Central India’s tiger capital. The only park where tiger sightings in #buffer zone are as good as the core.

3) Kaziranga - Wildlife as far as the #eye can see, the only park in #India that can match the experience of #MasaiMara. You can sight the “Big Five” in a single #safari.

It's Saturday. Day 339 of #Russia's war in #Ukraine.

This is the daily news thread covering all the important bits of the conflict in one handy 🧵

If you like my work, and can afford to buy me a coffee, please see my profile.
Starting in traditional way with a chance for you to check back through yesterday, in case you missed Orban's undiplomatic words about #Ukraine, the latest big blaze in the series #RussiaOnFire or anything else during Friday.

Speaking about Orbán's stupid remarks, he's not alone in the region with #Russia also having culivated useful political idiots in #Croatia #Slovakia + #Czechia

Hopefully an election in 🇨🇿 today will sideline one more (Babiš) as @motytchak explains here:

The Russian army had a long history of engagement with #leopards, and quite a bloody one. The leopard (almost extinct), tiger, and cheetah (both extinct) at the National Museum of Georgia are a vivid testimony of the environmental change that Russian imperialism brought along. 🧵
With the conquest of the Caucasus and Central Asia, the Russian Empire set foot into a natural world that differed much from that of mainland Russia. Leopards and tigers, among others, inhabited a wide area that included evergreen rainforests of Georgia and Azerbaijan. 2/
If the vision of the Caucasus as "Russia's India" haunted the minds of economists and agriculturists, naturalists were quick to trace commonalities with India with respect to its animal diversity. Exotic fauna only highlighted the region's alleged "tropicality." 3/

How ongoing research is increasing the available corpus (and our understanding) of Pre-Pottery #Neolithic #iconography.

Just a little #archaeology 🧵 on why this is really fascinating. 😉

Of course, the phallus-flashing guy gets all the headlines.

Well, it *is* quite a picturesque scene - one fitting #Neolithic iconographic conventions in the region & an apparently strong focus on male depictions (here's e.g. a comparable image from contemporary #GobekliTepe). Drawing of a 40 cm high scu...

Yes, millions of #Russians will die, alas, but the world as a whole will be saved.

Next, all of #NATO's conventional power would come crashing down on Russia.

on air defense.

The Russian #AirForce will be destroyed in the first minutes for the most part, and those fleets that get in the air will be destroyed by F-22s and F-35s.

The B2s will fly to the #Urals and launch bunker strikes on #Yamantau and other safe havens.
All Russian #leadership bunkers will be destroyed in the first 5 hours.

Next, the B52s will carpet bomb the Russian army in #Ukraine and #Russia. Hundreds of thousands of bombs will scorch the entire Russian army left unprotected by air defense and air forces.

#Hosana you deserved to live your life wild & free. You fought hard to survive at a young age & became a successful beloved young leopard. I am sorry you were murdered by humans meant to protect you. This must never happen again. In a drainage ditch at dawn? Just NO. #wildearth
If anti #poachers can kill a wild habituated leopard in his own domain in a drainage ditch at dawn then I no longer believe in #conservation or the mission of #wildearth. RIP #Hosana you were loved more than #cecilthelion May the #sabisands learn from your death & never repeat it
Sabi Sands Wildtuin says the killing of #hosana was investigated & conclude all safety protocols were followed. When was he killed? What exactly happened? A beloved HABITUATED (for 💰) leopard was executed by the #sabisands proving humans & wild animals cannot coexist. #wildearth

Don’t we all love fun facts about wildlife? In our #WildAboutFacts series, we bring you some striking images and facts about the animals around us. Let’s begin the series with #Leopards.

Join the discussion and post your #leopard images!

#Leopards are actually the smallest among the genus of big cats. These elusive #cats prefer to hide in trees or in caves during the day.

#Leopards are not picky about their food and feed on a wide range of animals. They crouch low and sneak on their prey before attacking them.

#Porcupine vs #Leopard. Porcupines are difficult to hunt as they have needles all over their body. Only few can do that, leopards are one of them. They turn them upside down. But this one is with less experience. Old video from Africa.
Here this one from India. When a leopard killed a porcupine & taking away. This is from last year shot by Zubin.
#Porcupine body contains thousands of quills, upto 30000, which acts as defence mechanism. Each quill has a topical antibiotic. In wild only few can kill a porcupine, #leopards are one of them. But not this time. Video from net. Of this size, from my archives. Image
