BRM9, a black rhino infamous for his foul temper. I took this image moments after a mock-charge where he then simply continued with breakfast @rhinoceros__gram

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.

Elephant trunks are integral to communication among elephants. Inserting ones' tongue into another elephant's mouth is a form of greeting and an indicator of respect.

Meet Joseph the wild, young bull elephant that made Beho Beho (Selous, Tanzania) both his home and personal pantry.
This pachyderm was a daily resident of our lodge, habituated to the point where wandering into our bar during high tea was an accepted norm!

Often reaching lengths in excess of 5-6m this particular individual measured in at a staggering 5.5m (18ft).
She was safely released back into the wild.

One of the infamous Matimba Boys. This coalition of male lions tore up the Sabi Sands Reserve's pride structures, leaving devastation in their wake. They were very impressive!

A young red-lip (herald) snake. This individual shows their characteristic threat display with flattened head and inflated body. No wonder people often thought they were a dangerous member of the viper family.
They are however back-fanged, and the venom is of NO CONSEQUENCE to humans.
Photographed in the Waterberg, South Africa.

This young male leopard (Xivambalana) provided what was arguably one of my best photographic opportunities early one morning when we found him sleeping on a dam wall in the Sabi Sands.
