Tepui Brush-Finch (Atlapetes personatus)!
=============================
Completed account for Tepui Brush-Finch (Atlapetes personatus) by T. Schulenberg and A. Jaramillo: http://ow.ly/KH4Fe 
This handsome brushfinch is restricted to the tepui region in northern South America, where it occupies shrubby borders and clearings, as well as the understory in closed canopy humid forest. Tepui Brushfinch also occurs in second growth of varying ages, particularly when associated with white sandy soil.

I bears a close resemblance to the Nighthawk found in North America but with a much longer tail.

The Blue Dragon Sea Slug deserves this fierce and fanciful name!
*****************************************
Though it is only 2 inches long, it can sting its predators because collects a stringing chemical from the jellyfish it feeds on and stores the chemical in the finger-like tubes along its side.
Also this amazing creature floats on the top of the water and camouflages by “counter shading”, with blue topsides and silver undersides to resemble the water surface.

Falling Out of the Family Tree!
=========================
A mutation in an ethanol-metabolizing enzyme arose around the time that arboreal primates shifted to a more terrestrial lifestyle, perhaps as an adaptation to eating fermented fruit.

Kihansi spray toad!
================
The Kihansi spray toad's only natural habitat is the waterfall spray zone in Tanzania's Kihansi Gorge. It once numbered around 17,000, but it dwindled after an upstream dam was built in 2000, cutting off 90 percent of the gorge's water flow. Although a sprinkler system helped, the beleaguered species soon succumbed to chytrid fungus, a major plague of amphibians worldwide. The toads were declared extinct in the wild in 2009, but by then scientists had saved enough to start a captive-breeding program at several U.S. zoos. That population grew from 500 to 6,000, allowing reintroduction to begin in 2012.
