Baloo has been venturing out of his den more on warmer days, and Shere Khan doesn’t waste ANY time pouncing on his bear brother when he least expects it! Don’t worry, this photo may look a bit hostile, but this is just their version of playing.
Shere Khan really loves to quietly sneak up and poke Baloo after Baloo lies down to investigate new enrichment. Baloo is a pretty large bear, so Shere Khan knows exactly how much time he has to quickly scamper away before Baloo gets up. He’s such a sneaky tiger! Of course, Baloo pretty much does this same thing to him… All in a day’s fun for these two unlikely animal friends!

It was almost dark, the last few mins before I could exit the park, the entire pride started to wake up and finally could get some shots. Here is one of the cub from the pride.

The Gir Forest National park contains some of the most heavily protected regions of wild lion populations on the entire planet. This region is also the only area with lions living in the wild in India.

The effort by the government and the forest administration helps to protect the lions from human-animal conflict in many different ways. Many of the lions prey on cattle because they are plentiful within the forest. One of the ways the government and forest administration help to protect the lions is by compensating the farmers when one of their cattle have been taken by the lion prides. This helps to stop the conflict between farmers and the lions and has even helped the Gir Forest Asiatic Lion population reach an official count of 550 lions!

Wolves, grizzlies, bald eagles and other endangered animals in this country are facing an enormous threat. PLEASE sign the petition in my bio to save the endangered species act. Congress is threatening to remove critical protections and revamp the act (which has been in place for over 40 years, and protected 99% of endangered species). Without this act, endangered animals will be hunted and their habitats will be destroyed without consequence. We can't let these innocent/majestic animals go extinct. SIGN NOW! Once you've signed comment done, I will be following some of you 💙🐺🦈 #STOPEXTINCTION #HowlForWolves

Shy tiger cub trying to catch up with its mom. The mom was on the right side of the road, I didn't even see the cub at first, who was on the other side. He eventually reunited with him mom and 2 siblings. Incredible work for this mom raising the future for tigers 💛🐯🐯🐯

Leopards can adjust to almost any setting in the wild. They can also adapt to numerous different species for prey when more common prey is unavailable. Leopards prey upon over 90 different species of animals. Leopards can also go days without water because they can attain moisture from the prey that they eat. The threats leopards face are humans, over hunting, loss of habitats and poaching. #ShizzysWildcatRescue #conservation #Leopard

"There was an #ibex kill made by a snow #leopard and we waited all day for her to come down with her #cubs at the site of the kill. In fact we stayed still for 3 hours in a very uncomfortable hide in temperatures close to -20 degrees Celsius. And then suddenly, all the discomfort seemed to vanish as we saw the the female Snow leopard arrive with her three cubs! As they started moving down in the fading light towards the kill, some sudden disturbance jolted them to turn around and disappear. Soon we scouted the source of this unusual disturbance. It was the #Tibetan #wolves ! These ever elusive #canids I would regard made for an even more rewarding sighting than the snow leopards as it was the most unexpected and an unbelievable moment," describes a thrilled #wildlife #photographer, Shivaram Subramaniam @shivaramsubramaniam of his challenging trekking expedition in #Leh , in Jammu and #Kashmir.

The leopard is so strong and comfortable in trees that it often hauls its kills into the branches. By dragging the bodies of large animals (such as this impala buck in foreground) aloft it hopes to keep them safe from scavengers such as hyenas. Leopards can also efficiently hunt from trees, where their spotted coats allow them to blend with the leaves until they spring with a lethal pounce. Please go to @mattiasklumofficial to see a beautiful female I met in Mombo camp, Botswana! Leopards are also successful nocturnal predators that stalk antelope, deer, and pigs by stealthy movements in tall grass or wooded areas. In my opinion it's crucial that we understand the necessity of protecting biodiversity and staying within planetary boundaries!

Siberian (Amur) - Found in the Far Eastern area Russia. Between 400-500 left in the wild.

Sumatran - Found on the island of Sumatra in Indonesia. Less than 400 left in the wild.

Indochinese - Found in Myanmar, Southern China, Vietnam and Thailand. Between 600-700 left in the wild.

South China - Found in Central and Eastern China. Possibly none left in the wild.
Malayan tiger. - Found in Malaysia and Thailand. Around 300 estimated to be left in the wild.
Three subspecies are sadly extinct including the Caspian, Bali and Javan tiger. Over hunting and loss of habitat forced these subspecies of tigers into extinction.

Stories like this are sadly not uncommon but thankfully, as a result of increased awareness and education about co-existence, the emphasis is firmly on saving leopards that stray into villages. Thank you to these people for rescuing him and for safely relocating him back into the forest 💕

India is doing #conservation right as they're preserving leopards in their natural habitat as numbers are now up since the last census, they have brought wild tigers back from the brink with their 50 wild tiger reserves like @ranthambhorepark, they are preserving rare rhinos in Kaziranga National Park, which is a National Heritage Site and they plant millions of trees annually to help restore animal habitat through the recognition that real conservation happens in the wild.

When in India, most of the wildlife photography that is showcased are of the big cats that are located in India. Although there are many top predators that roam India. The battles between the wolves and the hyenas are just as interesting as the battles of lions and hyenas in my opinion.

This image was shot in the early hours of the day at Velavadar, #Gujarat . The #photographer , Sandeep Mall, came across a pack of #wolves eagerly devouring a freshly-killed blackbuck , when a #hyena arrived on the scene and snatched this morsel from the #wolf pack. Normally, a hyena would stand no chance against a pack of wolves, but for some reason this daring individual was lucky to escape without a skirmish.

Did you know you could tell a Sumatran tiger apart from other subspecies of tigers by their distinct "mane" on both sides of their face?
There are currently less than 300 Sumatran tigers left in the wild. Although these tigers are a part of a few AZA accredited Species Survival Plans, things are still looking bad for the Sumatran tiger. The good news is that you have the power to save them!
Every year entire rain forests are destroyed by companies who use palm oil. They burn down rain forests so that they can plant more trees to grow palm oil fruit. So how can you help? By not consuming palm oil! This helps the Sumatran tiger in two ways. The first is that the demand will go down for palm oil if you don't fund the companies who burn forests. The second is that their habitat won't be destroyed! You can save this tiger by voting with your wallet! #ShizzysWildcatRescue #SumatranTiger #SayNoToPalmOil #WhenTheBuyingStopsTheKillingCanToo #Indonesia #Malaysia

Photo by @FransLanting Jaguars combine the stealth of a leopard with the strength of a lion. But unlike lions, they’re solitary. In Brazil’s Pantanal wetlands, jaguars grow big because of an abundance of prey that includes capybaras and caiman which they stalk along the rivers. This jaguar was zeroing in on a caiman asleep on a sand spit, which presented a classic ambush opportunity. Pantanal is a great testing ground for new ways for people to coexist with jaguars. Learn more from NatGeo’s "Big Cats Initiative" and Panthera. To see more big cats in action, follow me @FransLanting.

Forgive me for being a day late with my #WorldWildlifeDay post this year but to be fair, every day is World Wildlife Day for us right? 🐘🦁🦏🐼🦍 I've made this pic collage to raise awareness of 8 of the most critically endangered species on Earth as a result of human actions. Please support #conservation efforts to save them 💕 .
_
AMUR LEOPARD - Critically Endangered. The @WWF indicates that there are fewer than 60 adult Amur leopards in the wold today.
_
ASIAN ELEPHANT - Listed as endangered since 1986. Currently threatened by degradation, fragmentation, loss of habitat and poaching.
_
BLACK RHINO - The species as a whole is critically endangered and three subspecies including the western black rhino have already been declared extinct.
_
HAWKSBILL TURTLE - Critically endangered. Found in the world's tropical oceans primarily in coral reefs.
_
SOUTH CHINA TIGER - Listed as critically endangered since 1996 but tragically this tiger subspecies is already possibly extinct in the wild as one has not been recorded since the early 1970s.
_
EASTERN LOWLAND GORILLA - Largest of the gorilla subspecies, native to Democratic Republic of the Congo. Until the mid 90s, there were thought to be 17,000 left in the wild but the latest survey found that numbers had sunk to fewer than 4,000.
_
