Photo @jasonedwardsng Bathroom Buddy! This diminutive Desert Tree Frog was inhabiting an outhouse on a remote cattle station in Outback Australia where I was on assignment for @natgeo. I’m uncertain who was more surprised when I turned on the light, me or the frog! . He confidently leapt for the open toilet bowl and climbed up under the rim. A nocturnal species, this individual avoids the stifling heat by living among humans where there is a ready supply of water and insects attracted to artificial lights. .

📸 photo by @alexbraczkowski A young lion looks out from the heights of a large candelabra tree on Uganda’s Kasenyi plains. This pride consists of 8 individuals (7 cubs) and one adult female. They are the embodiment of how resilient lions can be. No one knows what happened to the other mothers in this pride but somehow one female was managing to raise the offspring of her lost/killed sisters. This is one of the reasons lions form groups. They often have cubs around the same time and will suckle each other’s cubs. In hard times they will raise each other’s young, like in this pride.

Photo by @daisygilardini | Mother polar bears in the Hudson Bay region exit their maternity dens with their newborn in February March. Once cubs leave the warmth of the den, they have to face frigid temperatures that can easily drop to -50C° with wind chill. Mother bears are particularly attentive and caring for the little ones while heading to Hudson Bay to hunt seals. They often stop to nurse and rest. In the event of a storm, they dig small “day dens” in snowdrifts to shelter their cubs from the elements.

Photo @filipe_deandrade // Great White Sharks gather around the island of Guadalupe in Mexico to hunt Seals and Sea Lions. When the Seals leave the safety of the island to go hunt, the Sharks stalk them from the deep and use the element of surprise to make a kill at the surface. This eternal dance between predator and prey has been playing out in our oceans for millions of years and its because of the Sharks that we humans have a clean and balanced oceans. Protect Sharks, protect everything that falls below them on the food chain. I took this shot aboard the @nautilus_liveaboards while on assignment for an upcoming Shark story. Eco-tourism has proved that Sharks are #worthmorealive and when you protect natural resources the economy and ecology of an area thrives.

Photo @jasonedwardsng It’s always about the light; saturated or thin, high or low, and then comes the colour. Lilac-breasted Roller are one of the most splendidly feathered birds in the world. When you have a setting sun and a bird perched before a late afternoon thunderstorm you just know the scene is going to sing! .

Photo by @bertiegregory // A new born harp seal pup on an ice floe in the Gulf of St Lawrence, Quebec, Canada. After finding an unfrozen placenta on the ice, we knew nearby there must be a pup only minutes old. After rounding a big chunk of ice we found this tiny little pup with its mother. Barely able to hold its own head up, it was certainly one the cutest things I’ve ever seen! The mother will suckle this pup for just 10 to 14 days. They will then abandon the pups and head north. To see these amazing animals in action, check out my online series, ‘Wild_Life: The Big Freeze’. Available on National Geographic Youtube and at natgeo.com/wildlife.

Photo by @daisygilardini | Grizzly bears are omnivorous. Their diet includes food of both plant and animal origin, which means their diet is as varied as the human diet. They eat grass, berries, roots, fungi, and seeds. They’re not hunters per se, but they are opportunistic meat eaters. They scavenge dead animals and eat insects. They will occasionally kill newborn, injured, or elderly ungulates. During the salmon run they like to fish, to build up the fat reserves needed for winter hibernation.

Photo @filipe_deandrade // A Great White Shark comes blasting through my frame after a full on breach. The power, speed, intelligence and resiliency of these Sharks makes them one of the most capable predators in our oceans. The fact they they are drivers of evolution and keep the balance by removing the sick, dying and dead is what makes them important for our oceans.

📸 by @alexbraczkowski A young Chacma baboon sits under the arms of its mother near Shingwedzi, Kruger National Park. I saw two similarly sized infants like this one this week along the dry riverbed of Shingwedzi. At this time of the year it is incredibly dry in this part of Africa, water is restricted to small pools (often dug by African elephants) and temperatures soar into the late 30’s (C). Baboons like these will feed on whatever roots, grass seeds (and the odd mopane leaf 🍃) until the rains come around late November.
