The lion who lost his pride: Frail old lion is pictured as he starves to death after being cast out by his family in South Africa 

Old lion is pictured starving to death in South Africa

The lion, known as Skybed Scar, was well known in Kruger National Park, South Africa, but was kicked out of his pride and grew emaciated before finally succumbing to hunger. Heart-breaking images show his sad decline with his ribs clearly visible in his once powerful body. He is pictured inset lying dead in the grass. At one point, the weak animal, in his final days, was chased by an elephant.

Dino dog! World's biggest puppy bred to recreate an extinct 7,000-year-old monster pooch is 6ft tall and already weighs more than an average human at nine months old

World's biggest puppy in Utah stands six feet tall

A nine-month-old dog that weighs 12 stone (180lb) and stands six-foot-tall is the world's biggest puppy, according to its owner. Enormous Euphrates was bred to replicate a prehistoric canine species and eats an impressive eight cups of dog food a day. She is a member of a new breed called the American Molossus, selectively bred to be the closest genetic descendent of the Mesopotamian Molossus, a massive dog species that died out 7,000 years ago. The only remnants of the ancient canines left are in museums, with some account suggesting they were used in battle by ancient Mesopotamian tribes. After calling hundreds of breeders and Guinness World Records, owner Jared Howser (inset), 41, of Salt Lake City, Utah, believes he own's the largest puppy in the world.

Oh deer! Kentucky hunter shoots dead buck with colossal antlers - only to discover the HEAD of a foe dangling from its horns

Hunter shoots dead buck which has the severed head of another deer dangling from its

Bob Long from Kentucky got two buck heads (pictured) with one shot. One of the rutting stags had clearly come out on top and had been roaming for weeks with his rival's head caught in its antlers. Sergeant Tony Dunker of Kentucky Fish and Wildlife said the decaying head belonged to a deer who had been dead for weeks after doing battle with his foe. During the rutting season, stags will lock horns and Dunker believes they may have been sparring for females. Local residents had seen the live deer wandering around with the grim trophy attached to its head in the days before Long made his shot.

Zebra swallowed whole by a crocodile in Kenya

The huge predator devours its prey and its monstrous body swells as it digests its sizeable lunch in the Maasai Mara National Reserve in Kenya. The crocodile has to fight away another beast who tries to get in on its food, but it shares nothing and is pictured floating in the water with the Zebra's head coming from its powerful jaws. Photographer Subramanian Sridharan captured the snaps and said he had to accept nature taking its course.

Lauren Ansell from Mount Coolum in Queensland posted a photo of a monster huntsman spider nicknamed 'Aragog' that appeared on the outside of the window where her partner was attempting to cook dinner. Ms Ansell said the spider appeared harmless, but did not take kindly after the pair attempted to move it from the window.

Photographer captures epic battle between octopus and seal

Tourists have witnessed the incredible moment an enormous octopus (pictured) has gone one-on-one with a 120kg seal. Conner Stapley caught the unbelievable 20-minute battle royal during a kayaking tour in Kaikoura, in New Zealand's South Island, on Tuesday at 2pm. The 28-year-old was leading a group of three kayakers around Kaikoura's South Bay when they watched the adult fur seal rip the giant octopus apart for food. Conner, who is a guide for Kaikoura Kayaks, said: 'It is quite rare to see something like this and rarer at this time of day, normally you would see New Zealand fur seals feeding in the evenings.'

Don't forget elephants: Stunning images taken by the world's top wildlife photographers in a race to save magnificent species from being poached to extinction

La Galleria Pall Mall showcases stunning photos of African wildlife

The photos are in a new book on the animals featuring work by 65 of the world's top wildlife photographers. The likes of Art Wolfe, Frans Lanting and Michael Poliza have combined for the project in aid of conservation. The images were on display at La Galleria Pall Mall in London earlier this year. Founder Margot Raggett said she decided to start the project after reading a quote by Sir David Attenborough. He had asked: 'Are we happy to suppose that our grandchildren may never be able to see an elephant except in a picture book?' But Ms Raggett said: 'My response to Sir David's question was an emphatic "No".' Pictured: Elephants (clockwise, from top left) at Amboseli National Park in Kenya, Addo Elephant National Park in South Africa, Victoria Falls in Zambia, Mashatu Game Reserve in Botswana and Kwazulu Natal in South Africa.
