Cheetah and son
Young cheetahs must be taught to hunt. If not they will starve.
Young elephants learn to use their trunks. SO confusing at first!
Leopards, unlike cheetahs, hunt instinctively from birth.
Leopards are nocturnal hunters
Hippos use this show of teeth to discourage intruders
Wildebeest huddle in the rain
Impalas, at the bottom of the food chain, are always on alert
Baby elephants are always active and playful
Giraffes tongues are an impressive 18 inches long
Hyenas are always on the alert to the activities of cheetahs and leopards. Very opportunistic!
Orphaned at birth this lion does not display the usual scratches from rough play
obviously her survival has made her tough
Elephants move with the herd with the smaller elephants protected
