Black Pool, The pool was cool enough up until 1991 for dark orange-brown cyanobacteria to grow throughout the pool. When combined with the blue of the water, the pool appeared to be an exceptionally dark green to almost black, hence the name. An exchange of function took place in 1991, shifting thermal energy to Black Pool and nearby Abyss Pool, causing them to heat up. Black Pool's temperature became hot enough to kill all the cyanobacteria in the pool, turning the pool a rich teal blue color. The pool also had frequent boiling eruptions on August 15, 1991, doming the water to 3 feet and causing heavy runoff. Black Pool remains extremely hot, and is now one of Yellowstone's most beautiful and intensely blue pools. The name of the pool remains "Black Pool."

However, habitat loss due to pollution and siltation has led to the disappearance of this species from many areas where it was once abundant.

Catarata Del Toro, the biggest waterfall in Costa Rica, columnar jointing in basalt that you can observe from your hotel right behind the waterfall: columnar jointing forms in lava flows in most cases, and is somewhat a rather rare feature. Columns are straight and regular (but sometimes curved) with 4 to 7 faces (check the steps along the steep track going down to the water fall!). It is commonly interpreted as resulting from rapid cooling from the top downward, most likely in the presence of water. Below the columnar jointing unit is a different, more altered (orange color is due to the presence of clay minerals that forms during alteration) unit with bombs and scoriae. Unlike columnar jointing, which result from effusion of basaltic lava, such feature results from a more a explosive event that occurred prior to eruption of columnar basalt. Both deposits most likely results from the (extinct) volcanic activity of the Porvenir Volcano.Costa Rica, Central America, Costa RicaD382706zKs.tif

common Zebra or plains zebra, Equus quagga, formerly Equus burchellii; plains zebra, also known as the common zebra or Burchell's zebra, or locally as the "quagga", is the most common and geographically widespread species of zebra. It ranges from the south of Ethiopia through East Africa to as far south as Botswana and eastern South Africa. The plains zebra remains common in game reserves, but is threatened by human activities such as hunting for its meat and hide, as well as competition with livestock and encroachment by farming on much of its habitat. Serengeti National Park, ecosystem is a geographical region in Africa. It is located in northern Tanzania. It spans approximately 30,000 km2 (12,000 sq mi). The Serengeti hosts the second largest terrestrial mammal migration in the world, which helps secure it as one of the Seven Natural Wonders of Africa,[1] and as one of the ten natural travel wonders of the world.[2] The Serengeti is also renowned for its large lion population and is one of the best places to observe prides in their natural environment.[3] The region contains the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania and several game reserves. Approximately 70 large mammal and 500 bird species are found there. This high diversity is a function of diverse habitats, including riverine forests, swamps, kopjes, grasslands, and woodlands.[4] Blue wildebeests, gazelles, zebras, and buffalos are some of the commonly found large mammals in the region.

Rufus Tailed Weaver, Histurgops ruficaudus; Rare, endemic to parks in northern TZ especiallyTarangire National Park; The Rufous-tailed Weaver, Histurgops ruficaudus, is a species of songbird found in East Africa. Despite its name, it is placed in the sparrow family Passeridae. It is a quite unusual sparrow species, and was included in the weaver family (Ploceidae) by many authors even after the other Old World sparrows were separated from the weavers proper, hence its common name. Due to its distant position among the Old World sparrows, it is placed in the monotypic genus Histurgops. It is an endemic breeder in Tanzania. WeaverRt0022_56.tif

Rufus Tailed Weaver, Histurgops ruficaudus; Rare, endemic to parks in northern TZ especiallyTarangire National Park; The Rufous-tailed Weaver, Histurgops ruficaudus, is a species of songbird found in East Africa. Despite its name, it is placed in the sparrow family Passeridae. It is a quite unusual sparrow species, and was included in the weaver family (Ploceidae) by many authors even after the other Old World sparrows were separated from the weavers proper, hence its common name. Due to its distant position among the Old World sparrows, it is placed in the monotypic genus Histurgops. It is an endemic breeder in Tanzania. WeaverRt0021nzhs.tif
