  • Bambi & Bhageera.

The forests of India have always had a very enchanting allure for adventurers and wildlife enthusiasts. Perhaps due to stories like Rudyard Kipling’s - The Jungle Book - inspiring so many to want to see tigers and black leopards in the jungles that they call home.

#Didyouknow? These jet black cats, often referred to as black panthers aren’t actually panthers at all. They are leopards. The difference in colour to that of a leopard with normal colouration, is not indicative of a seperate sub-species, but rather dominance of the dark-coloured pigment melanin in the skin. 📸 by @shaazjung

  • «Every picture tells a story.» Savuti, Botswana.

The pride is getting restless. From one second to the next, all heads rise as the roar of another lion echoes through the marsh. The young male is running restlessly up and down the sand path. Suddenly the rival appears, only a few meters away. Like the king of kings. An old lion - imposing, proud and clear in its presence. He stands still for several minutes, and seems to send a signal. Then the retreat follows. He must be well aware that he will be defeated by the younger lion. Nevertheless, he remains in close proximity to the pride.
