“A nap in the shade”

Some people say lions sleep 22 out of every 24 hours. It's true we often see them lying in the grass, sometimes yawning. But it doesn't mean they sleep when we're not there. “Lions lying sleeping in the shade on a hot day are […] conserving energy during the least energetically efficient time of the day. […] If the energy costs involved in an activity aren’t outweighed by its potential benefits, they simply won’t do it.” Clever.

This year the continent of #Africa is hosting the #IAU General Assembly that takes place every 3 years, for the first time in the IAU's history. It seems only right that an African astronomer should attend this historic event, and #astronomy needs more African astronomers. If you feel the same, please consider contributing to the IAU African Astronomer Travel Fund:

“Who is the observer?”

The Masai giraffe is the largest subspecies of giraffe, making it the tallest land animal on earth.

It is native to East Africa. The Masai giraffe can be found in central and southern Kenya and in Tanzania.

It has distinctive, irregular, jagged, star-like blotches which extend to the hooves.

Unfortunately, the Masai giraffe population declined 52% in recent decades due to poaching and habitat loss.

“Common Ostrich”

The ostriches of the Kenyan savannah have never been so prized: first by jockeys, who ride them to the delight of spectators, and then by meat lovers, their flesh being reputed to be healthy.

These birds, which can reach up to 2.60 meters and weigh a hundred kilos, can kill with a single blow of their legs.

The ban imposed at the end of 2003 on the sale of meat from wild animals, apart from ostrich and crocodile, has led to an increase in demand for ostrich meat, which is high in protein and low in cholesterol. Only the meat of the legs is marketed. Ostriches are slaughtered at the age of eight months to ensure that the meat is tender.

Ostriches have a life expectancy of 70 years and females can lay up to 35 eggs per clutch, some of which are never fertilized.

Chefchaouen (setkal jsem se i s českým přepisem Šavšaván) je docela hezký město, na to, že je to tak trochu past na turisty. Skutečně je to nejmodřejší město v Maroku. Na severu se modrá občas vyskytuje, ale ostatní města dál na jihu jsou spíš bílo-červená...

“Juvenile D'Arnaud's Barbets in sunset”

D'Arnaud's barbet is a small East African bird that feeds on insects, fruits, and seeds.

It grows to about eight inches, and is equally at home in trees or on the ground. A vertical tunnel two to three feet into the ground with a sideways and upward turn leads to the nest chamber.

In a striking dance the male and female face each on nearby twigs and twitch, bob and sing like mechanical toys.

“Children propelling a tire”

Children love to play, and they don't need much in the way of accessories.

Here, we offer them a thousand sophisticated and expensive gifts, and they sometimes prefer to play with packing boxes...

Over there, in Kenya for example, they don't have the “chance” to have so many gadgets, they make do with what they have, and have a lot of fun!
