Looks like it must be a male Dynastes tityus (Linnaeus, 1763). There are photos for comparison, and a full description with maps and some interesting notes on habitat and behavior, on the University of Nebraska State Museum Generic Guide to New World Scarab Beetles

This looks pretty much like a female zebra finch to me (the male have a more prominent feather pattern). See this picture: These birds are not native in Europe, this is correct. But it is always possible that birds escape captivity (or are released) and the live in countries where they originally not belong. I think this is the case with the zebra finch ...

Pathogen identification procedure is not necessarily standardised due to differences in resources available to each country but there are certainly several characterised and accepted approaches used to identify a disease causing pathogen.

I was first thinking of voting to close the question because it was too broad, but in reconsideration I think the answer of showing why it is too broad would constitute a proper answer in this case. First of all, the term disease is one of the most general terms for a problem in medicine. The only term that could be higher up is "medical condition." It ...

It reminds me of the smooth-barked Australian gum trees / eucalyptus, like a salmon gum, ghost gum, etc. Although there are no squirrels in Australia :) This photo of a Salmon Gum is from http://www.fpc.wa.gov.au/content_migration/plantations/species/arid/salmon_gum.aspx

Sorry, too big for comment! It's actually hard to tell, as there is no official claim on this one. Photo Link: http://youtu.be/nZoNdf6hlII?t=17s Al I guess is, it can be: Native breed of Iran like, Spur-Thighed Tortoise (Testudo graeca) or something like this Trachemys scripta elegans

Yes, it's a male. Source: http://bugmugs.org/2012/08/cicada-killer-pair/ Update: Wasps are in general very territorial. Even a paper bag can scare them as they take it as enemy hive. More on this: Do fake wasp nests actually fool wasps? Where does this guy go at night? Wasps are known to be lazy(less active) at night. Probably they go to the ...

It's definitely a bird pelvis (synsacrum). Based on the size (~30 cm), it came from a very large bird. Unfortunately, comparative images of bird pelves are rare on the internet. Some possibilities (large birds of Sweden possibly found on the coast): Great northern loon Golden eagle Common crane A loon skeleton (from ...
