  1. Thanks for sharing these photos. Note that in JungleDragon, members are asked to include basic details as part of the photo, therefore please consider the following tips:

    - You did not share any location info. You are asked to at least share the country in which the photo was taken. You can set the country using the "Set country" button. Even better is to geotag the photo, which you can do using the "Geotag this photo" button. If they were taken in a zoo, you can indicate this with a tag.

    - You did not identify the species on the photos. To identify the species, use the "Identify species" button. You seem to know the species on your photos so that should not be problem.

    Note that by sharing your photos with more complete details, they will show up in the species browser, the global wildlife map and in search. It helps people find your photos much better, plus it delivers a far more educational content. Check out our photo sharing tutorial for more information:
