Peering out from behind the grasses, a coyote pup curiously investigates its human onlookers. Coyote pups will spend about 6-9 months with their parents before becoming independent. During this time, these pups are rotated between multiple dens to ensure their safety. These pups only spent a few days at this den, but what a glorious few days those were! #coyote#pup#pupsofinstagram#coyotesofinstagram#california
The Okavango Delta is currently the driest that I can remember. With more mud pools than flood plains, the lions have to get down and dirty and join the African Jacanas to catch their prey.
This muddy and mean looking young male is part of a pride of 11 that fought over a Red Lechwe that they had killed in the mud.

@oceana The Endangered Species Act (ESA) is a success story - just look to manatees for proof!
The ESA has prevented 99 percent of species under its care from going extinct. But right now this landmark law faces grave attacks from anti-environment interests in Congress. Congress could soon vote on a number of bills that would weaken and undermine the ESA, leaving imperiled ocean animals in even greater danger. They need you to speak up on their behalf, before it’s too late.
Don’t let Congress rewrite this success story, follow the link in our bio to help #StopExtinction
