Southern African python are dark-coloured snakes with many brown blotches bordered in black down the back. It kills its prey by constriction and often eats animals up to the size of antelope, occasionally even crocodiles.
Burmese python is a large non venomous python species found in many tropic and subtropic areas. Lethargic and slow moving even in its native habitat, they exhibit timidity and rarely try to attack even when attacked.These snakes are carnivore animals and feed on mammals, birds and reptiles indiscriminately, but seem to prefer mammals.
Red-whiskered bulbul is apasserinebird found in Asia. It feeds on fruits, buds, seedlings, insects, spiders, and nectar. As many as 50 birds can be seen flocking and feeding together. You might also see them foraging on the ground. They usually stay hidden in the vegetation, but you might see them perching high in a tree in the early morning where they will sing and call to each other.
The red-vented bulbul, although notterritorial, is often considered an aggressive bird. It will displace other birds from theirterritoriesand competes directly for food. Thus, in areas where the red-vented bulbul has been introduced, this species can have very negative effects on local birds. In addition, the abundance of the red-vented bulbul in agricultural areas and gardens, where it destroys flowers, fruits and vegetables and may help spread the seeds of invasive plants, has resulted in its reputation as a pest.
Globally, the rose-ringed parakeet is the most invasive parrot species and became established in South Africa in the 1970s. It's mainly a green parrot with a red bill and a long, tapered tail.The species is widely bred in captivity.
Citrophilus mealybug feeds on the phloem of deciduous and evergreen plants in warm, temperate climates. They are often hidden from view, and cannot be seen without cutting open the fruit.
Fungus-like pathogenis a soil-borne water mould, fungus-like organisms, carried in soil and water that cause disease and death to a wide variety of native plant species, fruits, vegetables and garden plants. It also produces an infection which causes a condition in plants called root rot or dieback. The plant pathogen is one of the world's most invasive species.
Fungus-like pathogen is a water mould that has been identified as the likely causal agent of a relatively new disease of Monterey pine (Pinus radiata) found in plantations. Characterized by a relatively rapid death of needles and subsequent defoliation of trees, infections typically appear in the late autumn, coinciding with the onset of rain.
Fungus-like pathogen is a serious plant pathogen that affects the aerial parts of the trees and shrubs that it infects. It was discovered on rhododendron plants and a beech tree (Fagus sylvatica) in the Redruth/Truro area of Cornwall, South West England.
