White Bellied Sea #Eagle Couples have something very interesting and  simillar to human behavior. 
.
Did you know these #monogamous birds use the same nest with improvements for every breeding season. #CoupleGoals
.
Few years down the line, their nests would become a giant piles of sticks on top of trees, with their annual #homemakeover done by the momma and daddy birds.

  • Are those Blue Birds Really Blue? NO!
.
Would you believe almost no animals on earth has Blue pigmentation and The Blue we see on them is rather an optical illusion? (Well except for one particular butterfly species - read about it on go.campleopard.com/true-blue)
.
Yes including your favorite king fishers and peacocks
.
Birds have tiny microscopic structures on their feathers that the light goes thru a series of reflections in which only the blue color wavelength is escaped while the other wavelengths are canceled out. 
.
Think of the scenarios of how a prism would split the natural light into different wavelengths to separate and the process of a noise cancellation headphone.
.

  • How to avoid trouble with Wildlife on the Roadside when you Travel in Sri Lanka.
.
.
Following up the incident of elephant attacking a car with 2 tourists driving on the main road yesterday, while another group of social media accounts putting videos of wild elephants being fed and approached on foot, we thought of putting together few travel tips on the subject.
.
.
Some of main roads in Sri Lanka run thru Protected or Unprotected Areas rich in Wildlife. Therefore;
.
.
πŸ‘‰Please DO NOT approach them on foot/scooters/tuks or by your vehicle πŸ›΅πŸ›ΊπŸšΆ
.
πŸ‘‰Avoid driving thru such roads at night 🌌 and in smaller vehicles. 
.
πŸ‘‰If any animals are crossing the road or trying to cross the road give them enough space/distance and let them pass first! πŸ˜πŸ†πŸ¦š
.
πŸ‘‰DO NOT Speed/Stop next to them/Throw food or anything else at them πŸš«πŸš—πŸŒπŸπŸ§¨
.
πŸ‘‰DO NOT Keep open food that gives away smell to attract them πŸ‰πŸŒπŸ½
.
πŸ‘‰YOU DO NOT NEED TO FEED ROADSIDE ROUGH ELEPHANTS TO GET A 'PASS' FROM THEM! 
You can simply just drive thru without stopping for them, and they will make way for you. πŸ˜πŸš«πŸ‰
.
πŸ‘‰If you are in a Scooter/Tuk/Bicycle it's always recommended to pass the wild animals shadowing a bigger vehicle that passed by. πŸ›ΊπŸ›΅πŸš² ➑️πŸ‘₯🚚
.
‼️NOTE:
Professional Safari Vehicles and Operators approaching animals (within their comfort zone ofcourse) do not carry open food that attract such animals and ALWAYS APPROACH ONLY based on the body language of such animals (inside national parks as well as on the Roadside) assessed by professional and Experienced Drivers, Rangers and Trackers ensuring neither animals nor guests are in harm's way by such approach. 
.

Story behind the Picture: πŸ–ΌοΈ
@LeopardTrackingwithMarc forgetting to cleanup some food crumbs on his lap while driving on a main road with the windows down, and getting unexpectedly inspected by a roadside wild elephant for the smell of food crumbs.

  • NO MORE NUDE POSTS ARE ALLOWED!
.
Due to strong appeal by @peta and strict restrictions imposed by @instagram and @facebook, we will no longer be posting naked pictures of wild animals that could violate their privacy.
.
Though we are not supposed to publish their 'NUDES' on social media, checkout bucketlist.lk/camp-leopard to book your tour to go see these shameless creatures NAKED IN PUBLIC with your own 'naked' eyes... In fact we will throw in some binoculars for the drive to enhance your experience...
