#AnimaloftheWeek: Genus: Hallucigenia: (requested by @mc_clelland ) Three species are known to belong to the genus #Hallucigenia. These animals lived long ago in the Middle Cambrian, around 505 million years ago. In this period of time, modern animals were now appearing on the fossil record. This means is one of the earliest known animals. Fossils of this spiny worm-like creatures have been mainly found in Canadian shale and China. It was believed to live in sediment on the ocean floor. It is theorized to be an ancestor of modern velvet worms and possibly arthropods.  Due to the unique design and ancient age of this creature, much about its biology is not truly known. #ancientanimals #cambrian

#animaloftheweek Here is another member of our lovebird family, this little guy is a masked lovebird or a yellow-collared lovebird. This species are native to northeast Tanzania. However, along with other lovebird species, due to their accidental escape or release from captivity by pet owners there are many feral populations of lovebirds around the world. Including the USA & Australia! #yellowcollaredlovebird #maskedlovebird #zoo #sanctuary #lwp #parrotsofinstagram #zoolife #lincswildlife #lovebird

❓Mystery species alert❓If anyone knows what type of nudibranch this is we would love to find out!!! It's about 2.5cm long. EDIT: @emilythemarinebiologist helped us identify it as Flabellina trilineata, a species that has been spotted frequently down in Monterey, California. As many of you already know, our flow-through system means we get tons of critters that enter the aquarium through the water and grow in our exhibits. Once in a blue moon a species comes through that we are not familiar with. This has been happening more and frequently however, since many southern species are slowly but surely moving north. In fact, we just ordered a "Beachcombers Guide to Seashore Life of California" because our current go-to guide books are missing a fair number of marine species that we now regularly find up here. . . . . . . . . #uclueletaquarium #ucluelet #uclueletaquarium #tofino #ucluelettourism #aquarium #pnwaquarium #pnw #pnwonderland #marinelife #marinebiology #marineinvertebrates #inverts #vanisle #ocean #pacific #weloveanimals #nerd #nerdalert #nerdingout #animaloftheweek #seaslug #nudibranch

No, they’re not upside down, and no, they haven’t been stepped on. What are they? This week’s #AnimalOfTheWeek is the remora. Often called “suckerfish”, this type of fish is known for using its shoe print looking suction cup to suck on to other sea creatures! They attach themselves to sharks and whales for a free ride and then when that animal eats, the remoras detach and eat up all the little scraps that may drift off. Free rides and free meals!

#AnimaloftheWeek: Gaboon Viper (Bitis gabonica, requested by @jimmykrochmal ) The #gaboonviper is native to sub-Saharan west Africa, especially in the rainforest regions. The viper gets its name from the gaboon tree that is also native to this area. It has a wide head and a color pattern that helps it blend into the leaf litter on the forest floor. The bite of this snake is venomous, and can be fatal if untreated as it decreases blood pressure and can damage the heart. Bites are rare, however, as the snake is slow and is docile around humans. Because of this and its aesthetic appearance, this snake has become an increasingly popular exotic pet. It can grow up to 7 feet in length, with two inch long fangs. This snake species gives live birth. #snakes #africanrainforest
