Jag-u-war! Mother jaguar and her young cub fight over 16ft anaconda in southwest Brazil

Jaguar and her young cub fight over 16ft anaconda in southwest Brazil

The jaguar cub and its mother were seen locked in a tug of war on a riverbank in Porto Jofre in the wetlands of Pantanal, Brazil, both pulling at either end of a 16ft-long anaconda. The adult jaguar had caught the anaconda and had gotten help from her cub to carry it across the river, when the five-month-old cub suddenly challenged her on the shore, according to the photographer who captured the battle.

Dramatic moment small fish realises it's too late as hungry heron prepares to gobble it up

Dramatic moment small fish realises it's too late as hungry heron swoops in for its dinner

The photographer who captured the ‘oh no’ moment, Dave Potts, 29, from Basingstoke, Hants, said: “The heron was showing its natural behaviour and hunting for fish, apparently birds need to rotate the fish in order so it goes down properly. “I was lucky enough to capture it during this process as the fish was suspended evenly in its beak. “I wasn’t trying to capture ‘that’ shot, I was trying to capture a shot of a kingfisher and while waiting I was making the most of the surrounding wildlife.

Too late to escape: Ferocious jaguar snatches a vulture out of mid-air as it desperately tries to take flight in Brazil

Jaguar snatches a vulture out of mid-air in Brazil

The jaguar spotted the vulture sitting in the shade and pounced on the helpless bird. As the scavenger tried to escape the snarling wildcat clawed at its prey and sunk its huge teeth into the bird as it tried to flap its wings. The vulture was caught completely unaware by the female jaguar as it sat by a stretch of water at The Pantanal, Encontro das Aguas State Park in Mato Grosso, Brazil.

Hippos

After being bitten by a crocodile, the large antelope is seen being dragged slowly under the water. But in a miraculous turn of events, a nearby hippo is seen making its way across the water to help the animal in its hour of need. Captured whilst on safari in Masai Mara game reserve in Kenya, the exhausted antelope later managed to escape to safety.

The stunning photographs were taken by amateur photographer Nick Fleer, 27, on a visit to the Shingilana Dam in Londolozi Private Game Reserve, South Africa. He said the wildebeest was drinking the water when a hungry crocodile appeared out of nowhere and launched its attack. Seconds later a furious hippo joined the fight after apparently becoming irritated that the battle to the death was going on so close to where it was wading

Crocodile attacks zebra and gets attacked by HIPPO in incredible wildlife pictures

The 15ft reptile was carrying the head of a zebra in its jaws (bottom left) through the Kruger National Park, South Africa, when it was spotted by a hippo relaxing with its calf. Angered by its presence, the furious mother hippo pounced on the crocodile - and tried to bite it, its teeth clenching just inches away from the reptile's head (center image). Despite the attack the crocodile managed to escape unscathed with its lunch, only for its fellow reptiles to nick the zebra carcass when it returned to their resting place. The amazing series of events was captured by wildlife photographer Renata Ewald when she was on an expedition to the park in April,

Dramatic moment a bald eagle swoops and LIFTS a fox – carrying a rabbit – 20 feet high in ‘mid-air act of thievery’ 

Dramatic moment a bald eagle swoops and LIFTS a fox – carrying a rabbit – 20 feet high in

Here's a mid-air battle you don’t see every day – a hungry young fox, pictured above, and an equally ravenous bald eagle fighting over a rabbit, more than 20 feet above ground. These amazing photos were taken by photographers Kevin Ebi of LivingWilderness.com in the San Juan Island National Historical Park, San Juan Island in Washington. Mr Ebi explained on his blog: 'A couple of days ago, I captured an especially dramatic act of thievery. I saw a bald eagle steal a rabbit from a young red fox. Even more impressive: at times, this battle played out more than 20 feet in the air. I spent the day watching several young foxes, called kits, rest and play on the prairie. I counted at least eight kits. There are probably more. Shortly before sunset, they started hunting. One fox managed to snag a rabbit’s foot. Several kits gave chase, but it made it to its den to feed. About 15 minutes later, a red fox caught a rabbit and was carrying it across the meadow. I panned my camera with it to capture the action. Then behind me, I heard the cry of a bald eagle. I turned around and saw it approaching fast. I knew it wanted the rabbit. I intently trained my camera on the fox bracing for a split second of action.'

Koko the gorilla adopts two kittens and cuddles up to them in footage

In celebration of her 44th birthday, Koko's trainer Francine Patterson, on behalf of The Gorilla Foundation, introduced the ape to some babies - a litter of kittens. Koko was captured on camera being presented with a cardboard box containing the kittens (top right). After stroking them gently (bottom right), the gorilla picked one up and brought it in for a cuddle (center). After bringing the cat up to her face to take a closer look, the gorilla stroked its belly with her index finger and tucked it under her arm for a cuddle. Later, Koko was captured gesturing for one of the cats to be placed on her head (left) before later signing that the animals are her babies.

SAD UPDATE: 

World-famous gorilla Koko, who could communicate using 2,000 words of sign language, dies aged 46 in California

Hero-potamus: Hippo saves a waterbuck from death as crocodile tries to drown it

Heroic hippo saves a waterbuck from crocodile in Uganda

Stunning pictures show a heroic hippo help a struggling waterbuck escape the jaws of a hungry crocodile on the White Nile River at Murchison Falls National Park in Uganda. In a death match that lasted for more than an hour, the helpless creature was held underwater by the reptile. But the waterbuck eventually broke free from the crocodile's powerful clutches when a passing hippo intervened, gently dragging and nudging it from the water.




Wildebeest attacked by angry hippo in Kenya reserve

Hundreds of wildebeest were seen lying dead on the banks of the river in Maasai Mara National Reserve, Kenya, during the first seasonal crossing. Whilst one wildebeest managed to ride out the stampede to cross which had killed many of its herd, it was then attacked by an angry hippo in the water. Despite surviving the stampede, the poor animal had no chance when it faced an angry bull hippo in the water.

Shear madness! Alpacas sport bizarre new look for the summer...and now they're real studs! 

Cotswold alpacas sport bizarre new look for the summer

A herd of Cotswold alpacas have been given bizarre new haircuts (pictured) for summer, including one styled to look like a poodle and another like a dinosaur. Helen Kendall Smith, 53, cut the coats of ten of her 30-strong flock to celebrate a decade of breeding the animals in Cirencester, Gloucestershire. The alpaca are sheared annually to stop their fleeces getting too long and causing them distress, but this year Ms Smith decided to give her flock more unusual styles than they were used to.

Proof that NOTHING is safe from a great white shark: Photographer captures incredible moment one massive predator bites another as they fight over food

Great white shark bites another as they fight over food

These rare photographs capture the moment a five metre-long female snatched up a juvenile in its jaws after the younger shark dared to jump the food queue. The smaller shark had been attempting to feed on bait in the Neptune Islands, off the coast of Adelaide, South Australia, when the female charged in at the same time. But instead of taking a chunk out of the young shark, she simply spat him out before continuing the feast. Jason Whittle captured the shots while diving off the coast of South Australia.

He’s behind you! Incredible photo shows shark sneaking up on diver in the Azores

Wildlife photographer Fabrice Guerin, 50, captured the ominous image as he and his team mates went diving looking to spot sea creatures in the Archipelago of the Azores, Portugal. Despite their sinister appearance, Mr Guerin claimed the sharks are actually curious and quite shy creatures. He said: 'It's a privilege when the nature offers you a moment like this. With its slender silhouette, big eyes and long nose, the blue shark looks like a cartoon character. It is very curious and shy, but it is actually real and vulnerable.'

Buffalo's brutal revenge: Animal gores lion and tosses it into the air after pride attacks its herd and slaughters one of its companions 

Buffalo gores lion and tosses it into the air after pride attacks its herd

A brave buffalo proved its loyalty to its herd when it charged into a pride of lions after seeing one of its friends lying injured and surrounded by the hungry predators in a game reserve in South Africa. The buffalo used all its strength to gore one of the startled lions with its sharp horns, tossing the winded animal into the air with ease as the other lions scattered. Sadly despite the heroics of the buffalo, its friend was too badly injured to escape and was set upon by several other lions, who raced to the scene after hearing the commotion.

Nobody messes with this mother's babies! Brave rabbit's epic battle with a snake after catching it trying to eat her bunnies 

YouTube video shows a rabbit’s battle with a snake after catching it trying to eat her

The amateur video of the fight between the snake and rabbit has gone viral on YouTube, being viewed more than 1,6million times. The extraordinary film shows how the long black snake has wrapped itself around bunnies (top left) before their mother comes to the rescue, leaping from nowhere onto the snake (top right). After managing to get the snake to release her young, the rabbit continues pursuing the reptile in an epic battle of wills (bottom left). At one stage the rabbit is sent flying into the air in a backwards somersault (bottom right) after the snake manages to bite it and then slithers off - but the rabbit is still in hot pursuit. By the end of the clip one thing is clear - the one thing is clear - the reptile won't be trying to wrap itself around this bunny's babies again any time soon.
