Transvaal quill-snouted snake, photographed in the Waterberg region of South Africa.
The noticeable shape of the nose an indication of their fossorial nature. This unfortunate individual had come to the surface after heavy rains and was found DOR on a tar road.

A male cheetah surveys his surroundings in an area with a prolific lion population.
Cheetah unfortunately find themselves particularly vulnerable to lion and leopard attacks. Their weak jaws and feline build are not designed for confrontation.
