Surprise! (@african.inspired)

 A lion cub jumping on their unsuspecting father. This makes great practice for when the cubs grow and have to hunt for themselves.

Feeding Time (@saskia_246)

 

This young giraffe loves their milk!

In wildlife reserves young animals sometimes have to be brought up without their parents. That means a lot of feeding if the animal is as large as a giraffe!

 

 

Time To Dance (Mohammed Alnaser)

 This photo went viral with most people not knowing who took it! Luckily the photographer got in touch and we can give Mohammed Alnaser the credit he deserves. Great photo :)

Foster Father (Marcus Westberg)

 "André Bauma rescued Ndakasi when she was still an infant. Her mother had just been murdered, and without André, the other Virunga NP rangers, and veterinarians from Gorilla Doctors she would have died within days, if not hours. Ten years later, to her, André is both mother and father, and when one of the other mountain gorillas at Senkwekwe - there are three other orphans being cared for here - wants his attention, she can get a bit jealous. Although she now weighs over 70kgs, she loves being close to him, and climbs onto his back for a piggyback ride every chance she gets. “I’m getting too old for this,” an exhausted and sweaty André told me after half an hour of rough play with Ndakasi and Ndeze (who also wanted her share of André’s attention), his shirt torn. “But I will always be here. They are my children.” He’s a great man, André, and spending time with him was a real privilege." - Marcus Westberg

A Rare Encounter (Graeme Purdy)

 "Hippos are very cool animals, well I think so anyway. They somehow make you smile every time by how simply how they look and act.  It is not uncommon to see them out dry land as they make their way home after a night of grazing but I’d never had I been able to get my camera this close before as they are very shy out of water." - Graeme Purdy
