Upside Down (50) More files...
Some animals spend most of their lives upside down including the sloth which hangs around in trees 90% of its life! Bats roost while clinging to a support with their toes, some Honeypot ant workers called 'repletes' dangle from the roof of the nest acting as living larders for the colony and the Upside Down Jelly has its tentacles up and bell below. Hanging head down is helpful for animals that are feeding and drinking while some critters enjoy an altered view of world while at play in this gallery of images.
