Fungi - Consumeable or Poisonous 2

In my previous post about fungi, i recieved feedback from my friend and he told me both species are not consumeable. I do not know about it but better not try to eat it if we don't know. So, this time i put up another two species of fungi but just for your eyes only.

I don't think this is consumeable too. Both photos above are the same species and i found it on the fallen log.

Same goes to these two photos of fungi. I also found it on fallen log. Any idea guys? Do anyone of you know what is this fungi?

Need your feedback and share your knowledge with us.

The Giant Ant

Camponotus gigas is a dominant member of the ant communities of the Southeast Asian rainforests and one of the largest ant species in the world.

Minors of C. gigas have a mean head width of 3.56 mm and a mean weight of 135 mg; majors have a mean head width of 6.9 mm and a mean weight of 372 mg (Pfeiffer & Linsenmair, 2007).

Based on that information, i guess you guys can compare it's size with the other ants that you know.

In tropical rainforest of Borneo, i have seen this guy quite frequently. I have seen them in Sarawak and Sabah. Not to tell the specific place but they are quite easy to find if you walk inside the forest.

Little Young Birdie

Yesterday, I was talking about empty bird nest, so today I will share about a nest with young birdie inside. It was not me the one that first encounter this bird nest with its young inside it. One of my friends found it.

As you can see, the nest was build from mosses and it is built on the leaf. Only one young inside that nest as my friend told me it was only one from the first time he found it. I was spending about half day there so I didn’t have a chance to observe this nest and find out who is the mother. If I did, I will have the answer for which species of bird is this. But, don’t worry I hope I will be able to see this bird before it fly away from this nest. So, I will get you guys update with the condition of this little friend of mine.

If I am not, then I have to leave this with a puzzle in our head……

Empty Bird Nest

So many birds around with chirps here and there. Flying over my head and perch on the tree branches. I can’t get close to them and take a very nice shot of them. Birds are difficult to handle when I want to take their pictures. Never mind. Just let it be.

I don’t want to be so mean and I don’t have story about birds which they are one of my most favorite animals. Therefore, I specially post these two photos of empty bird nest that I found on the lemon tree branches.

Which species of birds own this nest? I can’t tell you guys because I didn’t see any birds enter this nest and it was an abandon nest. Maybe it is a bulbuls nest or pipits? I am not sure too. Anyone want to guess? Without a solid answer from an ornithologist, I can’t tell the right answer for whose nest is this.

So, I leave it until here. Let it became a mystery. Till tomorrow.

Aquatic Insect

I was looking for my friend the Bornean Sucker Fish when I suddenly my attention attract by this guy. There were two different types that I saw but I only can catch this guy.

Who is this actually? Science is so broad, animals and plants are so diverse. Everything that I find, I tried to find out what it is but if I don’t have any knowledge on them, I became hopeless. If I refer back to my pass experience, I have been working with one field biologist that doing research on Odonata (Dragonflies and Damselflies). We look for larvae of dragonflies and damselflies in the water source such as streams and ponds. However, this one is not like it or maybe it is dragonfly’s larvae.

Okay. I need to email this photo to my friend and will update this post when I get his feedback on this aquatic insect.

So, be patient guys. I hope I get the answer soon. See u tomorrow then.
