A cheeky crested barbet perching on the edge of our balcony at Jaci's Tree Lodge.

Get a grip! This mother Abyssinian colobus has no problem holding her baby and moving through the forest canopy in southwestern Ethiopia. It’s amazing because this species of monkey only has four fingers on each hand ... no thumbs!

Baby croc, doo doo doo doo doo doo 🎶🎶 Is that song stuck in your head? 🐊 Spotted this little guy today, super cute. Apparently they are trying to relocate all the crocs here and the little guys are proving difficult. I enjoyed an early morning game drive got to see some good game, but this guy was my favourite 🐊😁 . . . #southafrica #southafrican #wildlife #africanwildlife #croc #crocodile #dam #babycroc #safari #gamedrive #gamereserve #mabula #nature #natureza #gotteeth

Want to say “Hello,” but don’t know the local language? Try waving your hand. Such gestures, common among humans, are also surprisingly similar among chimpanzees and bonobos, our closest great ape relatives. - Photo credit: ©Lola ya Bonobo - - - - #monkey #monkeys #wildanimals #wildlifeaddicts #wildfire #nature_perfections #natgeo #discover #natgeoyourshot #africanwildlife #africanimals #Animalonplanet #africanwildlife #africanamazing #wildlife_captures #animal_sultans #wildlifeplanet #wildlifeart #earth #earth_emotions #earthpics #earthporn #awesome_earthpix

How to get exotics experience in vet school: Go to your local zoo or aquarium!⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ ☀️Over a summer, many zoos have internship programs! Understand that depending on the role you may not be in direct contact with animals as many interns serve in education roles, but that’s not a bad thing! Communication with the public and education are KEY skills for veterinarians in any job 👩🏼‍🏫⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ 🧪Get involved in research! Zoos are constantly trying to improve the welfare of their animals and many conduct research on nutrition, enrichment, and other diseases. Again, you may be working more with data than animals in these projects but exotic animal medicine places precedence on research. 🧠 We dont know enough about all species in our care and when working with exotic animals, it’s vital to contribute to the body of knowledge on them!⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ 👩🏼‍⚕️ Ask about shadowing or externships. If you’re having trouble making contacts, reach out to your alumni office to see if there are any zoo vets in your area that attended your vet school; they might be willing to let you shadow. Externships are amazing ways to get zoo experience, just know that many of these you will have to apply EARLY for (some up to two years in advance ) so determine what institutions you’re interested in and inquire.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ 🦛 Get a zoo membership! I got an aquarium membership last semester and it’s had amazing effects on my mental health 🧘🏼‍♀️ Its fun and their enclosures/enrichment inspire me to add more to my pets and patients lives ✨ ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Have you ever worked at a zoo?

Safety in numbers. Living in a large family group has its advantages. Vervet monkeys can defend themselves and their young more effectively against predators and rival groups that may want to take over their feeding grounds. Their ability to sound the alarm for potential threats from the ground and air makes them very effective at avoiding predators. They have cheek pouches for storing food. The vervet monkey’s colour vision allows it to distinguish between ripe and unripe fruit. . . . . #timbavati #serengeti #vervetmonkey #lionking #big5 #natgeo #africanwildlife #bbcearth #africageophoto #yourshotphotographer #wildlifephotography #wildlife_perfection #african_portraits #safari #africannature #wildlife_shots #capturethewild #africanamazing #majestic_wildlife_ #ig_africa #wu_africa #wildlifeaddicts #featured_wildlife #endangeredspecies #wild #wildlife_inspired #raw_allanimals #naturelover #wildlifeonearth @natgeo @olympus_au @geosafaris @world_bestanimal

Hunters do MORE for wildlife and the people of Africa than all of the animal rights extremists combined. But it's about the shared goal we have of making sure animals are around forever—and legal and well-regulated hunting plays a significant part of that. . #LetAfricaLive #FreeMarket #Hunting #HuntingIsConservation #HuntersAreConservationists #StandWithHunters #SustainableWildlifeConservationist #Africa #AfricanWildlife #AfricaHunting #ZimbabweHunting #SouthAfricaHunting #NamibiaHunting #HuntingSupportsWildlife

Another addition to our riding safaris: the Million Flamingo Ride.⁠ This ride is something special because it focuses on the overwhelmingly beautiful landscapes of Tanzania, with Lake Natron and its millions of flamingos as a highlight.⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ @kaskazihorsesafari ⁠ ⁠ #safari #africa #wildlife #africanwildlife #loveafrica #tanzania #lakenatron #landscape #naturelovers #natureaddict #pferde #african_portaits #explore #reiten #reitsafari #pferdesafari #horsesafari #horse #horses #horselife #reiteninafrika #horselove #horseriding #horseridingholiday #horsevacation #horsesofinstagram #horsebacksafari #safarilife #lifebetweentheears #horseback

If we could read minds, we could be pretty sure that this flap necked chameleon would be thinking “if I stay dead still, I hope these humans wont see me”. - - Much time is spent talking about chameleons are able to beautifully blend into their environment through their changing colour. - - Less is spoken about the fact that this is also how they thermoregulate [becoming darker to warm up and going lighter to cool down] and that their colour change is largely a response to behavioural stimuli. This means that their ability to change colour is not a conscious decision but rather a physiological response controlled by their nerves. Signals from their central nervous system trigger their chromatophores and melanophores, specialised cells that contain pigments in them, to bring about the colour change – Nothing short of incredible. - - This is a flap necked chameleon. They are the only chameleon species we find in the central Greater Kruger National Park. - - #walkingsafari #walkingsafaris #africansafari #safariafrica #safari #safaris #instasafari #tailormadesafaris #africanwildlife #big5 #nature #africanbush #africanwilderness #intothewild #chameleon #ecotravel #ecotourism #responsibletravel #travelwithpurpose #adventuretravel #hikingadventure #hikinglife #hikingtrail #outdooradventures #outdooradventurephotos #peoplewhoadventure #womenwhotravel #wildwomen #loveoutdoors #südafrika

Doused in fresh mud, to keep off insects and prevent sunburn this #bullelephant is headed for a cool drink at the cleaner waterhole. #Elephants are selective about their water and will always opt for fresh water if it is available, especially if it comes from a fresh pump at a waterhole. #elephantconservation #elephantsareamazing #loxodontaafricana #nature #naturephotography #Africa #kenya #zoology #conservationbiology #wildlife #wildlifephotography #Africanwildlife #pachyderms #animalsofinstagram #elephantsofinstagram #wildlifeconservation #EarthCapture #YourShotPhotographer #NatGeoYourShot #Bushlife

One of my favorite black and white images of an #elephant Tusks and feet are important tools for an elephant. With over 20,000 muscles in the trunk and prehensile lips, it is used for anything from gently caressing a baby to tearing down trees. Their feet play a role in sensory detection with high densities of paccinian corpuscles they can use to sense seismic vibrations through the fat pads in their soles. Snapped in #TsavoEast National Park, Kenya. #elephantconservation #elephantsareamazing #loxodontaafricana #nature #naturephotography #Africa #kenya #zoology #conservationbiology #wildlife #wildlifephotography #Africanwildlife #pachyderms #animalsofinstagram #elephantsofinstagram #wildlifeconservation #EarthCapture #YourShotPhotographer #NatGeoYourShot #Bushlife

Endangered Species? No, but antihunters have declared them so at the recent CITES convention. (Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species ) In countries that have banned hunting, giraffe numbers are down, as are lion, elephant, and almost every other species. But in hunting countries like Namibia, South Africa, Botswana, and others, giraffe numbers are stable or rising. The giraffe proves two truths of wildlife conversation: 1 ) hunting almost always creates the greatest financial value in wildlife, & 2 ) majority rule is a poor way to manage wildlife. #wildlifeconservation #CITIES #giraffe #notendangered #hunting #wildlife #CITIESconvention #endangeredspecies #huntingban #noscientificjustification #africanwildlife #hunter #ifitpaysitstays #huntingisconservation

It’s always fascinating to watch a big elephant 🐘 gathering at one of the waterholes in the Hwange National Park, Zimbabwe. After getting their thirst quenched🚰 and having some fun playing in the mud to cool down, everyone (big or small ) makes sure they cover themselves in a thick layer of mud. ⁠ ⁠ Interesting facts:⁠ This habit of covering themselves with mud has a good reason, of course! The mud is sunscreen 🧴 for the elephants 🐘. Yes, as super thick as their skin is, they are not immune to sunburn in the brutal heat of Africa!⁠ ⁠ #elephantbaby #elephantheaven #elephantlove #elephantlover #elephants #africanbushcamps #conservationzimbabwe #HwangeNationalPark #somalisacamp #Zimbabwe #zimbabwewildlife #waterhole #majestic_wildlife #splendid_animals #wildlife_perfection #wildlife_photography #wildlifeaddicts #wildlifeconservation #wildlifelovers #africanwildlife #amazingafrica #safari #thisisafrica#travelafrica

Adorable fact of the day: baby elephants instinctively suck their trunks to comfort themselves, kind of like how baby humans suck their thumbs. Animals are the best 🐘❤️
