It's Big cat week so @alexbraczkowski and @natgeowild are taking over the @natgeowild Instagram story today (click the Nat Geo Wild icon) to show you Queen Elizabeth National Park's incredible tree-climbing lions! This is Jacob and he's a young male about to leave his pride. Here he is hanging out in a big sycamore fig tree in the Ishasha sector of the park. Did you know that cubs start climbing as young as 1.5 months and that's what we're showing you today! #follow along and remember to tune into big cat week!

Video by @bobpoolefilms | Cubs learn at a very young age to dislike hyenas.  Naborr, the mother of these cubs and star of my new special, Man Among Cheetahs, does all she can to keep her cubs safe, but everywhere she turns there are hyenas who would kill them.  There is never a dull moment following these big cats!  Only 10 percent of all cheetah cubs make it to the age of 2.  I’ve become so attached to these cubs and it is a roller coaster ride of emotions filming their journey.

Join Bob Poole for Man Among Cheetah tonight at 9/8c on Nat Geo WILD! #BigCatWeek

Video by @bobpoolefilms | It is OK to play with your food if you are a Cheetah cub! But this isn’t really play. The cub has to learn how to kill and practicing going for the throat as mom drags her kill into the shade is fair game.

Join me for my #BigCatWeek special, premiering tonight @ 9/8c, filmed with the amazing @bertiegregory.

Jaguars are the 3rd largest of the big cats. Found from US / Mexico border to northern Argentina. Jaguars have rebounded in this area where 95% of the land is privately owned. In the past many ranchers would kill the cats when they ate their cattle. Today in this area tourism brings in much more money to the local economy than cattle ranching. So the jaguar population is increasing. But revenge killings of jaguars happen close to this area and all throughout the jaguars range. Also poaching for skins, bones and teeth is growing for the first time since the 1970’s to feed the demand for Asian Traditional Medicine and luxury items from endangered species. “When the buying stops, the killing can too.” @wildaid

eForests provide us with up to 50% of the oxygen we breathe - oceans the rest. They give us 75% of the fresh water.
If we can save the forest of the Amazon and other areas in Central and South America for the JAGUAR and Puma. The forests of Central Africa for the leopard, lion, elephants etc. And the forests of South Asia for the Tigers and Leopards. If you save the top predator in any ecosystem you save everything that lives with them.

Photo by @stevewinterphoto | I love seeing Pirata flying through the water in one of his spectacular failures - trying to get food from his supermarket - the Pantanal. Jaguars have a tough life trying to find food in their watery restaurant - they may want caiman for dinner but it may take them days and many spectacular failures before they are successful. Pirata has had a rough life - like Scarface - as Pirata is blind in one eye.
