#earthcapture by @andreaswolden a polar bear mother and her hardy cub in svalbard, norway. it’s a tough life for polar bears, having to spend much of their lives hunting for their next meal, battling extreme weather and coming up against rival bears. it’s a mean feat when a mother is able to raise even one cub to adulthood 💚

hey cutie! outside of mating season, long-tailed t**s are often seen in groups of 6 to 17 birds, flitting through the trees and bushes from feeding to nesting sites. the groups are made up of relatives and non-relatives who split up when mating seasons begins . . . . .

a feral rabbit having a wash in vancouver, canada. these rabbits are descended from domesticated european rabbits released or escaped into the wild. a rabbit virus is currently spreading through canada, which can k**l feral rabbits within 36 hours of exposure, but shelters are working to stop the virus in its tracks.

The last photos of kenya’s ‘elephant queen’. these incredible photos were taken by @willbl on the plains of tsavo in kenya. the female, known for over 60 years as f_mu1, has died of natural causes and was one of the last remaining super tuskers in africa. ‘if i hadn’t looked upon her with my own eyes, i might not have believed that such an elephant could exist in our world.’

a fierce firecrest standing at around four inches tall. the small birds are monogamous and males sing during the breeding season, often with its crest raised, and has a display which involves pointing its bill at another bird, showing off the crest and strong face pattern.

the pronghorns salute! though these animals are colloquially known as the american antelope, they're actually neither deer nor antelope. they're the last surviving member of the antilocapridae family dating back 20 million years

#earthcapture by @4elementphotos 'almost every fox den i've come across has "toys" out front, little things they find and keep to play with, in this case it was this feather and it was hilarious to watch these two challenge each other for it, each so proud when they got it from the other.'

Welcome to the world little guy! this rare baby rothschild’s giraffe has just been born @chesterzoo after a 15 month pregnancy! the species are one of the world’s most as risk mammals, with fewer than 2,650 remaining in the wild. zoo conservationists are working to boost numbers in africa, and this new addition has an important role to play in the endangered species breeding programme 🦒💚
