Looking for night monkeys, Aotus nigriceps, at Villa Carmen Biological Station and came across this dwarf caiman.
Bluefin are the largest tuna and can live up to 40 years. They migrate across oceans and can dive more than 4,000 feet. Bluefin tuna are made for speed: built like torpedoes, have retractable fins and their eyes are set flush to their body. They are tremendous predators from the moment they hatch, seeking out schools of fish like herring, mackerel and even eels. They hunt by sight and have the sharpest vision of any bony fish. There are three species of bluefin: Atlantic (the largest and most endangered), Pacific, and Southern. Most catches of the Atlantic bluefin tuna are taken from the Mediterranean Sea, which is the most important bluefin tuna fishery in the world. This species is estimated to have declined at least 51% over the past three generation lengths (39 years) and is listed as Endangered under Criterion A2.

The La Hoya minute salamander, Thorius minydemus is a species of salamander in the family Plethodontidae. It was endemic to Mexico and only known from near its type locality near La Joya, Veracruz.
Population studies estimate that there are only 150,000 to 200,000 of westland lowland gorillas left in the wild, with the species in rapid decline. That has earned them a Critically Endangered ranking from the IUCN, the organization that monitors the world’s endangered animal. Most western lowland gorillas live in equatorial Africa, the geographic area that includes countries like Congo, Gabon, Cameroon, the Central African Republic and Nigeria. In Nigeria’s Cross River State, one subspecies of lowland gorilla is even more imperiled—an isolated group of gorillas located about 200 miles north of the main population, which number less than 300. A new superhighway project slated for the area threatens to put them in even more precarious situation. Smithsonian article.
