The deep waters off Dominica are breeding grounds for sperm whales, filmed engaging in tactile social behaviour at the surface. Caves are a feature of Cuba’s limestone geology, and provide homes for millions of bats as well as Cuban boas and secretive hutias, the latter filmed for the first time in the wild. The southerly ABC islands (Aruba, Bonaire and Curaçao), swept by dry trade winds, are virtual deserts. Every year, 20,000 Caribbean flamingos arrive to breed on their salt pans. The clear waters around Bonaire have the greatest variety of reef fish anywhere in the Caribbean. The final island to be featured is Trinidad, cut off from South America by rising sea levels 2,000 years ago. Its island fauna include many mainland species such as red howler monkeys, capuchins and scarlet ibis

Green Iguanas Iguanas are a popular pet for collectors of exotic animals because of how cute they look and supposedly they are easy to take care of. Unfortunately the idea that they are simple to look after was likely spread by those who sell them, because they actually need a strict environment and diet to survive. They can also be difficult to tame and handle, especially when they are fully grown, and this has led to a large number being released into the wild. They are naturally from central and south America, and thrive in warm environments. This has meant that those released in similar climates, such as those found in parts of California, Florida and Hawaii, have thrived and begun to breed. This has been detrimental to the local ecosystems where they compete with native species for food, and will prey on species that haven’t adapted to deal with these kind of threats. As a result, Iguanas are illegal to own in Hawaii because of the potential devastation and havoc they can cause on the islands. In Florida, the populations of feral iguanas have caused extensive damage to vegetation and local wildlife, so if you do decide to get one please be a responsible owner and don’t release them into the wild!. 9. Cuban Tree Frog These cute frogs are a favorite of exotic species collectors, but the Cuban Tree Frog is causing serious issues across Florida. They are quite difficult to identify among other frog species, something that is made even more difficult by the way that they can change color. They are originally native to Cuba, the Bahamas, and the Cayman Islands, and are thought to have been first introduced to Florida in the 1920’s. It’s the recent popularity of keeping them as pets, though, that has led to an explosion in their numbers in the wild as a result of collectors releasing them. Cuban Tree Frogs are an aggressive species that feed on at least five different species of native Floridian frogs, as well lizards, small snakes and tadpoles. They are also able to survive in urban areas, and will take over birdhouses, ponds and birdbaths where they lay their eggs. They have been responsible for massive changes in the ecosystem, and have even been known to affect humans by causing power outages?? They are a danger to environments where they aren’t native, and so must not be released under any circumstances. 8. Rabbits Rabbits are another incredibly popular pet for owners around the world, but when they are released into non-native environments they can cause serious damage. The best example of this is in Australia where they were released for hunting in 1859. Only 24 were set free, but by 1920 there were an estimated 10 billion across the country. There have been numerous attempts to curb the population growth, but with their speed of breeding, ability to feed on most vegetation, and overall resilience, rabbits still roam Australia in huge numbers and pose a threat to many of the natural species like the bilby and burrowing bettong by taking over their burrows. 7. Goldfish/Carp They may seem harmless enough, and are a popular pet for adults and children alike around the world, but releasing your pet fish into the wild can have disastrous consequences for your local environment. Nowhere has this effect been seen more clearly than in Australia where the problem has gotten out of hand. Notorious for their strict rules on bio-containment, it’s why Johnny Depp and Amber Heard got in trouble for allegedly sneaking in their dogs. The Australians have good reason for being that way. In 2016 researchers from the Murdoch University in Perth caught goldfish that weighed up to 2kg and were up to 30 centimeters long. These large animals are thought to have descended from a small variety that were being kept as pets and released into the wild a few years before. By feeding on more food and disrupting the ecosystems, these fish can spread and cause significant damage by off all the native species. Goldfish the size of dinner plates have also been found in Alberta, Canada, and have led to fines of $100,000 dollars to those that release non-native species into the wild. Angler Raphael Biagini captured a legendary “giant goldfish” out of a lake in the south of France. Fellow fishermen had spent 6 years trying to capture this orange koi carp weighing 30lbs. The only way this fish ended up in the lake, was because someone was trying to get rid of it.

Did you know that the tiniest frog in the world is smaller than the size of dime ! From decoy spiders, to the largest religious temple in the world, these are 18 Unusual Jungle Discoveries. #10 … A Presidential Candidate? -- Found in the Peruvian Amazon Jungle, the odd-looking Puss Caterpillar is actually a flannel moth in larval form. The soft-looking hair is a decoy, though … the spiny hairs can be poisonous. Speaking of hair, some people think the creature resembles the hairdo of a certain Donald Trump … poison spines and all #9 … Giant Stone Spheres -- This phenomenon was first noticed by workers clearing out South American jungles in the 1930s. Since then, they have been discovered all the way from Costa Rica to Bosnia & Herzegovina . No one can say what purpose these giant spheres actually served. Some legends say gold was hidden inside, and many of the spheres were destroyed by fortune hunters … who found nothing. Whatever their purpose, that’s a serious set of stones! #8 … In the Amazon, a group of engineers discovered a snake with a unique appearance. Better known as a caecilian (see-sillian), it’s also known as a limbless amphibian. But many people have developed more colorful phrases for the creature, none of which can be repeated here. Suffice it to say, this chap might have a career in the adult entertainment industry. #7 … Rings Around the Amazon -- Scattered through the Bolivian and Brazilian Amazon can be found a series of straight, square and ringlike ditches. The purpose of these man-made structures is still a mystery. Experts theorize they may have been used for defense or religious reasons. Whatever their purpose, the rings were there before the rainforest even existed! #6 -- Bahama Boa -- On a remote island that is part of the Bahamas, researchers from Harvard University stumbled upon a SILVER boa. The snake is believed to be a new species because it was completely separated from the boa family for millions of years. The first specimen that caught the researcher’s eyes was over a metre long ! #5 -- Vietnamese Stick -- Deep in the Tam Dao National park in Vietnam, lives a newly discovered species of stick insect, and it is considered “giant”. These insects were discovered in 2010 and it took them 4 years to claim the title of “new species”. The eggs that the female drops, albeit small, are also a marvel to look at ! #4 -- Seriously Tiny -- Papua New Guinea is the birthplace of this miniscule frog ! It is no larger than a dime, measuring in at a staggering 7.7 millimeters, or a just a quarter of an inch, the species is considered to be the smallest known vertebrate on the planet. I wonder if any animal will take that record any time soon ! #3 … Located in the Cambodian jungle, Angkor Wat (ank-or wat) is the largest religious monument in the world. Found by missionaries in 1860, this so-called lost city is estimated to be twice as big as Manhattan. Recently, researchers used a surveying technology called LIDAR, an acronym for Light Detection And Ranging, to learn more about the ancient complex. New details emerged, including confirmation that the temple grounds are much larger than previously thought. And wooden fortification structures were found surrounding the complex. The most intriguing discovery was a large structure on the city’s south side that measures 5-feet by 2-feet. So far, it’s function remains a mystery. #2 … A Real Long Fellow --This photo of a 55-foot snake got the Internet all twisted up. The creature was discovered in an Indonesian jungle, and would seem to lay claim to the title of “World’s Biggest Snake”. It weighed over 600 pounds, and was estimated to be 140 years old. Supposedly, this was one of two boas found by workers who were clearing the area for a new road. This snake was wounded and later died after a bulldozer ran over its habitation. The other boa managed to escape into the jungle. #1 --- New Peacock Spiders --- Scientists discovered 7 new species of the aptly named Peacock spider family. Hidden away in Australia’s rainforests these tiny creatures have some of the most interesting and complex mating displays around; filmed by Dr. Jurgen Otto, the mating dance is truly a sight to behold ! On a side note, these spiders are known to jump around to escape from danger on the jungle floor.
