Photo @pedromcbride // vertical world. giraffes, the tallest mammals on earth, spend most of their lives just like this — standing up. they eat, sleep and even give birth on four hooves. but this iconic and beloved animal is in danger of extinction. in just 15 years, their populations have dropped by more than 40 percent. their biggest threat: us. giraffes are prized for their meat, coats and tails, their habitat is being fragmented and degraded by development, and climate change is extending the droughts of the dry season. #africa #wildlife #giraffe #climatechange #endangered

We're devastated by news that #xanda, the son of #cecilthelion [pictured], has been killed by a big game trophy hunter in zimbabwe – not far from where his father died, also at the hands of a trophy hunter, just two years ago. xanda was 6 years old, cecil's oldest cub, and had several offspring himself. — lions currently face a conservation crisis in #africa, with an estimated 20,000 lions left living in the wild. . . . . . . . . #lion #lions #saveanimals #protectanimals #savelions #projectcat #wildlife #bigcat #bigcats #savebigcats

Although incredibly vibrant and bold in color, the veiled chameleon would be almost impossible to see amongst the dense leaves of highly vegetated parts of the arabian peninsula where it’s found. they’re quite shy around other, bigger species and may curl up into the fetal position when frightened. however, veiled chameleons (especially males) can get very aggressive toward one another. during breeding season, males perform for females by doing a courtship dance involving head rolls and chin rubs. to see a video of this chameleon, check out @natgeo. . . #chameleon #lizards #reptiles #vibrant #green #wildlife #nature #wildlifephotography #naturephotography #animalfacts #natgeo #photoark #savetogether

Leave it to #wildlife #veterinary #medicine to find yourself in the back of a landcruiser with a sedated leopard in your arms❤️😜 this 6 month old leopard had several damaged deciduous teeth (aka baby teeth) with tooth root exposure and had to be extracted. exposed tooth roots can cause severe pain and can also lead to infection. fortunately, the procedure went well and he recovered nicely. this leopard is currently in the safekeeping of the @ukutulalodge and i give them credit for the quality care they provide their animals and i'm so thankful for giving me the opportunity to work with them. they're one of the truly positive forces in south africa's wildlife conservation. i also want to give a big thanks to @007vet (aka scheepers...dr. gerhardus scheepers 🤵🏻😜) for letting me work side by side with him on these amazing predators. if you're inspired by my work then you def need to check out his page. he treats any animal and does so incredibly well. one minute he's darting rhinos and the next he's doing a c-section on a frenchie and then he's performing fracture repair surgery on an impala (like literally this was his day 2 days ago). this dude is the real deal, a vet that inspires vets. i've learned so much from him in just the few days we've vet'd together. i have so much more to share from this incredible week of mine in #southafrica, stay tuned! #leopard #bigcat #dental #surgery #wildvet #vetmed #africa #megapredator #ultimatepredator #itsnotaflower #itsadartstabilizer #seetheneedle? #dartstabilizersarethelatestfashionablehairaccessory #🙄#trendsetter

Sempre uma dificuldade tirar foto de mamíferos! ao longe, o símbolo desse cerradão, o lobo-guará (chrysocyon brachyurus)! uma pena ver ele correndo no meio da lavoura ao invés de no cerrado nativo... #cerrado #wildlife #wildlifephotography #naturephotography #preserveocerrado #loboguara #manedwolf
