You could say, I have a thing for jelly fish. And I am always really happy, if I got a commission to crochet some. :)

Spiny turtle (Heosemys spinosa)
The spiny turtle is known from Brunei, Indonesia, Malaysia, Myanmar, the Philippines, Singapore, and Thailand. Sadly this species is highly endangered!
It inhabits lowland and hill rainforest, usually in the vicinity of small streams, mainly in hill areas up to 900 m above sea level.
Mating behaviour appears to be triggered by rain; in captivity, spraying males with water results in them chasing females and attempting to mount. Nothing is known of nesting behaviour in the wild.
Violet-backed Starling - Cinnyricinclus leucogaster
As you can see in these photos, in the African species Cinnyricinclus leucogaster (Passeriformes - Sturnidae) the sexual dimorphism is extreme in terms of coloration plumage. It means that both males and females are phenotypically different or have different appearance.
Males have head, neck, back and tail of brilliant purple. The underside is white. The female, however, is drab; the purple of the male is replaced by olive green feathers and the white underside is flecked with green dashes.
