This month the world's best soccer players have returned to humanity's "original habitat" and are gathered for the first time in the African Continent for the 2010 World Cup, so let's celebrate the occasion with a theme showing what other species share their original habitat with us Very Happy

Out of Africa!

Anubias spp. are native to tropical central and western Africa.

The Anubias plant pictured above is many years old and over 18" tall. It has breached the water surface and flowered underwater many times. Sometimes I need to pinch it back. Despite its age, no algae grows on the leaves probably because the plant is not exposed to artificial aquarium lights, only natural sunlight.
Very Happy

An African Mudskipper, or Atlantic Mudskipper, (Periophthalmus barbarus).


It is the only mudskipper that inhabits the coastal areas of western Africa, in Atlantic coastline; the others are from the Indico-Pacific region between East Africa and Australasia.
