Javan Frogmouth - Batrachostomus javensis
A photo superbly achieved from a family of Javan frogmouths (from left to right - female, chick and male), belonging to the species Batrachostomus javensis (Caprimulgiformes - Podargidae). These are nocturnal birds with strong family ties, when brooding the male incubates in the day, and the female in the dark hours. 
The species, sometimes known as Horsfield’s Frogmouth, is found in Brunei, Indonesia, Malaysia, Myanmar, the Philippines, and Thailand; where it inhabits subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests.

What an amazing find! 
A female Sundarbans River Terrapin (Batagur baska) was discovered in a family pond in Bangladesh. The turtle had been kept as a pet for 16 years. After much discussion, the turtle’s owner agreed to sell the critically endangered turtle to the team’s breeding colony, adding a seventh female and diversifying the genetic base! In this touching photo, the previous owner says good-bye to her beloved pet.
