"Young African wild dogs playing with an impala leg. While adult wild dogs are ruthless killers, their pups play cutely with each other and anything they find, all day long,“ writes Your Shot photographer Bence Mate. "The rule applies in this case too: the brother’s toy is always more exciting. This is what happened on that very day, when they tried to drag the impala leg in three different directions. I was extremely lucky to shoot this special scene of these very rare and endangered animals.”

Photo by @TimLaman. A young, unflanged Tapanuli Orangutan male threatens another orangutan in the mountains of Sumatra. I just posted a shot of the much bigger male he is threatening over @TimLaman so check it out. Adult male orangutans are territorial and don’t tolerate each other. This young male is no doubt feeling his hormones surging and felt the urge to threaten the big male, but the big male just ignored him, knowing the younger male would run from a fight. When I made this image in 2014 on assignment for @NatGeo, I didn’t know this isolated population was going to be described as a new species of orangutan, Pongo tapanuliensis! It is amazing that in 2017, we are still making new discoveries about the great apes, our closest relatives. There is so much more to learn, but time is running out as they are critically endangered. Check out the link in my profile @TimLaman to read the @NatGeo News story about the new orangutan species, and check out the conservation group @socp.official working with the Indonesian govt to save these apes.

photo by @andrea_frazzetta // Rwanda. A picture of Muhoza, a Silverback Gorilla living in the forest of the Volcanoes National Park.
There are only several hundred mountain gorillas remaining on Earth, and about half live in the forests of the Virunga mountains in central Africa.
Gorillas can climb trees but are usually found on the ground in communities of up to 30 individuals. These troops are organized according to fascinating social structures. Troops are led by one dominant, older adult male, often called a silverback because of the swath of silver hair that adorns his otherwise dark fur. A gorilla group is named after the Silverback leading the family. Each gorilla group has distinct and unique characteristic quiet different from another. The animals are peaceful, gentle, social, and mainly vegetarian creatures.
Many conservation initiatives are meant to aid mountain gorillas, and it is believed that their numbers may be steady or slowly increasing. Still, they continue to face major threats from habitat loss and poaching.
