Euro-Asian Brown Bears part 3!! Btw before you start reading, be sure to hit that like button for support!
The oldest fossils are from the Choukoutien, China, and date back about 500,000 years. It is known from mtDNA studies that during the Pleistocene ice age it was too cold for the brown bear to survive in Europe except in three places: Russia, Spain, and the Balkans. Ironic isn't it? Now Europe has way hoter weather than Russia.
Modern research has made it possible to track the origin of the subspecies. The species to which it belongs developed more than 500,000 years ago, and researchers have found that the Eurasian brown bear separated about 850,000 years ago, with one branch based in Western Europe and the other branch in Western Europe, Russia, Eastern Europe and Asia.
Through research of mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA), researchers have found that the European family has divided into two clades. one in the Iberian Peninsula and the Balkans, the other in Russia.
Looking up their Origins is complicated and confusing I know, but it ain't bad to know a bit more about them. Knowledge is power!

Regrann from @dswt - Sattao is usually a social butterfly, but he occasionally likes his alone time. On one such day, he wandered off on his own while the others browsed en masse. This experiment with solitude was short-lived, however: He inadvertently disturbed a sleeping bushbuck, which woke up with a start and darted off. Sattao got quite a fright from this unexpected encounter and bolted back towards the group, shouting at the top of his lungs!

Back in Chiang Mai, Thailand for a month. It feels like a bit of a Time Warp being here again and living in the apartment building I first moved in to in October. Here are some cutie elephants I photographed before leaving for Bali. .

Brown Bears!! Part 2!!
Ok so let's continue with the second part of explaining Brown Bears. Be sure to hit the like button (don't forget 😂). In the mid-19th century United States, the brown bear was called "Old Ephraim" and sometimes even as "Moccasin Joe".
The scientific name of the brown bear is Ursus arctos, which originally comes from the Latin. Ursus translates to bear. and Arctos is a Greek word which also translates to bear. So Ursus Arctos are Greek and Latin words which translate to "Bear Bear". Cute tho 😁😍
Brown Bears are evolved from the Etruscan Bears(Ursus Etruscus) in Asia. And 800.000 Years ago, a portion of these species spread to Europe and of course evolved and adapted there which caused a bit of genetic differences. Which is the reason why the Brown Bear and the Euro Asian Brown bear are two genetically different species. They are not the same!
Hit that like button for part 3! Getting 600 likes there would be a great motivation for me.!!

Baby Boys just want to have fun! #trunkupwines #bekindtoelephants

Tamiyoi and Jotto have a lot in common. Both orphaned elephants hail from Northern Kenya, and both were rescued (albeit a year apart) after they slipped into wells and were abandoned by their herds. Now safely at the DSWT, they’ve been able to put this sadness behind them, and instead spend their days playing all sorts of fun games. Another favorite of theirs, which we didn’t manage to get on video here, is hide-and-seek!

You can support Tamiyoi or Jotto — or any of the 84 orphans currently in our care — by fostering them. To learn more, click the link in our bio.

Yes, those black things in the distance are Elephants. Roaming around the Masai Mara, which is where i was lucky enough to be shooting in December. .
If you are interested in Elephants you might want to come and have a drink with me at The Four Corners Gallery in Bethnal Green tonight.
It's the private view of our LCN Salon 18 Exhibition and I am showing a selection of images from 'On Patrol', my latest project made out in Kenya last year.
Drinks are 1830 - 2030 and then we will decamp to the pub.
..
..
This photo is part of a larger project, 'On Patrol' which is being exhibited from 18th - 28th April at Four Corners Galley, Bethnal Green.
..
Drinks reception is on 25th April @ 630pm.
Do come along if you can!

We are working on updating the “How to identify African elephants” page on our website to include higher resolution photographs. 🐘
Identifying elephants isn't difficult, but it requires using powers of observation and it takes a bit of practice.
There are many different characteristics that you can use to identify an elephant: sex; body size; shape; length and configuration of the tusks; size and shape of the ears; ear venation patterns; notches, tears, holes in the ears. @elephantvoices has developed eight educational modules explaining how to recognize these characteristics, which is the basis for the unique databases we're populating and use when we are in the field. 🐘

Want to learn more about elephant behavior? Visit our website www.elephantvoices.org or click the link in our bio. 🐘

Njanji browses during his afternoon walk. The orphans spend 9 hours per day walking out in the bush where they can learn vital skills to help them thrive as wild elephants in the future. #GRIwildliferescue #weareallrangers #bekindtoelephants #worthmorealive #secondchance #racingextinction #zambia

Trunk across back is an affectionate behavior often seen in elephants. Much like us hugging each other 🤗🐘❤️ #hugs #affection #affectionateanimals #wildfreeforever #amboselitrustforelephants #elatia #bekindtoelephants #specialanimals

Happy #WorldPenguinDay! Did you know penguins and elephants have some similarities? For instance, they both care for their young after they're hatched or born 💕

To protect him is obvious to his family. But they can only do so much in a world shared with humans.
.
Whenever I see elephant families in the wild, I appreciate the moment, where they’re living peacefully in a well-managed reserve with ecotourism providing some protection. There is some good happening in these dark times of the ivory crisis, or with Zim taking calves from the wild to sell to the international zoo trade.
.
When all too often commerce trumps conscience, it can be unbearable to think of what humans are capable of. So it’s important to also acknowledge what is promising and positive about our relationship with the natural world.
