Mother Nature has given us beautiful scenes. Today, we will share with you the beautiful photos of animal migration in the world.
Every year, birds, mammals, fish, reptiles … all over the world participate. It is a journey of hundreds. They pass thousands of miles to warm places of all species. The number of migratory animals per season may reach hundreds of thousands. We estimate millions of animals.
The photos below will show you about animal migration.
What is animal migration mean?
Animal migration is the long-distance on a seasonal basis. It is found in all major animal groups: including birds, mammals, fish, reptiles, amphibians, insects, and crustaceans.
Tens of thousands of American white storks emigrated from the northern United States to Mexico. A journey of more than 3,000 km to avoid winter chilly weather.
Pelicans will move in October in the United States. They travel around 1,500 animals to Idaho to enjoy a warm winter.
Pink flamingos will not migrate. Unless the weather is really bad. Global climate change has made them move more and more. Without a definite destination, they stop. When they find the right place to live.
The Japanese hog living in Hokkaido flies. They fly to avoid the cold in the south of the island in November. They return home around February. When the weather is warm again.
Which animal migration is the longest in the world?
An Arctic tern flies over Sand Island, Greenland, in an undated picture. The tiny arctic tern makes the longest migration of any animal in the world.
Hundreds of thousands of Munkiana ray fish migrate in the Baja waters of Mexico. This species does not have migratory behavior and this is the first time they have seen them doing so in large numbers.
Golden jellyfish have a very special “migration” behavior. Millions of jellyfish move from deep seafloor up to the surface of the water to catch light when sunrise and dive down when the last light flashes.
In October-December, the red crabs on Chrismast Island, Australia, migrate to the coast to spawn. Each crab has to cross an 8km stretch for 9 to 18 days.
At the end of his life, red salmon swim upstream to spawn in September every year. Then, all of them will die.
Traffic in Mexico has been stagnant since October because of migration from Mexico to downtown Austin, Texas, for giant fruit bats. Estimates of the number of migratory bats may reach 1.5 million.
Seagulls do not have migratory behavior. However, on September 13, 2014, about 35,000 hippies were forced to go to find a place to live because of melting of ice, of which 50 were killed by trampling during migration.
African wild buffaloes in the summer will move down the southern grasslands. This is thought to help them avoid predators including lions.
Deer migrated from the Upper Basin to Grand Teton National Park to look for food.
The branches are weighed down by monarch butterflies. They migrate billions in August every year to South America and return to Canada only in the summer. Animal Migration is really beautiful.
