Can you spot the Jaguar in this photo?! This mighty cat is the apex (top) predator in the Amazon, and is a #KeystoneSpecies critical to maintaining the delicate balance in that ecosystem. They are an opportunistic hunter, and a very good swimmer, and because of this have a very diverse diet of about 87 different species including crocodiles or turtles, deer, armadillos, monkeys and lizards amongst others. What this results in is a healthy food chain - particularly around plant destroying herbivores - and ensures no species grows out of control. However, the jaguar needs our help - they are shy, solitary creatures whose home is being destroyed through logging and farming. By protecting jaguars and the places where they live, weโ€™re also helping to look after other wildlife โ€“ of which there are a lot of in the Amazon and Pantanal โ€“ as well as the people who live and work around there.

Throwback to this tiger piece from a few months back. My friend loved it and hung it in her nursery ๐Ÿ˜Š and it gets me back amongst the #florafaunachallenge prompts. Happy Thursday all! P.s. 2 more sleeps until my firstborn turns 4. What! Birthday plans are afoot ๐Ÿ˜„

โ€œThere is no bigger adrenaline rush than being face to face with probably the most sought after big cat in the world. And to see him in such a lush green setting drinking water from a rain puddle was truly special. We had tracked him to this place two days prior using alarm calls of the Langur Monkeys and the Malabar Giant Squirrel. He was resting on a tree at a distance and was constantly mobbed by at least 50 Crows. That is when we knew he had killed something big and would not move from the area for the next 3-4 days. And with the only water source close to him being this rain puddle, it was just a matter of time before he emerged out of the undergrowth and quenched his thirst. When he finally obliged it was a breathtaking sight, one of my top moments in the woods.โ€ ๐Ÿ“ธ + text by Mithun Hunugund (@mithunhphotography)

About 12,000 years ago there was a mass extinction event that eliminated almost 75% of the worldโ€™s large mammal species. While cheetahs managed to survive this event, they experienced what is known as the bottleneck effect, in which there was an extreme reduction in their genetic diversity. This can be very dangerous for their limited population because without genetic diversity they can all be susceptible to the same infectious diseases, which means a single infection could potentially wipe out their entire population. Genetic diversity is also critical to a speciesโ€™ ability to adapt and overcome changes due to things such as habitat loss. The lack of diversity among cheetahs actually presents one of the greatest threats to their species and is part of why there is so much effort going into conserving them. โ€ข

My first attempt of filming with my Canon 7D! - Kayla Thompson ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
This was a brilliant sighting of a female leopard in a marula tree feeding on the last few scraps of her impala kill. She kept looking around nervously to keep an eye on the opportunistic hyaena lurking in the bushes.

Botswana holds the worldโ€™s second largest population of cheetahs. However, the vast majority of these cheetahs live on farmlands or in rural communities, outside of protected reserves and national parks due to competition by lions and other larger animals. Sharing farmlands is difficult, as farmers often see cheetahs as a threat to their livestock which can lead to retaliation killings. Our partner @cheetahconservationbotswana has had great success working closely with farmers to share alternative livestock protection methods that allow cheetahs to peacefully coexist on farmlands. #cheetahs #conservation #wildlife #bigcats #botswana Photo by Jane Horgan

Regrann from @natgeowild - Video by @alexbraczkowski
A female African leopard walks through the grasslands of Queen Elizabeth National Park, Uganda. Leopards are the worlds most adaptable but persecuted big cat. They can feed on animals as small as dung beetles and as large as large bull eland, but they prefer to hunt animals that weigh 15-40 kg. Impala, gazelles, duikers and bushbuck are favorite meals and are hunted using a "stalk and rush" strategy which entails a slow, careful stalk up to within just a few meters of the prey animal followed by a burst of speed to bring it down! Follow @natgeowild and @alexbraczkowski for more shots of #beautiful big cats!

For my very first post back on Instagram. Hereโ€™s my current adventure, please meet the real Lion King (Tau in Setswana) - heโ€™s free, wild and protected.
Iโ€™m in love with Botswana ๐Ÿ‡ง๐Ÿ‡ผ if there was a country I would move to and call home this would be it. โ€” โ€” โ€”
It hurts to learn that in just two decades, African lion population has decreased by 43% with an estimated as few as 23,000 remains across the beautiful landscape of Africa.
One of the main causes is the alarming rate at which they are losing their habitats due to expanding human populations and the resulting growth of agriculture, settlements, and roads. Other reasons include illegal poaching, game hunting, being poisoned by farmers.
Humans need to learn to adapt and live in harmony amongst these beautiful animal. Together we can start by creating awareness in our community and educating others of the animal kingdom.
โ€” โ€” โ€”
Iโ€™m very pleased and impressed with Botswanaโ€™s proactiveness in striving to protect the natural habitat of Southern Africa. Great and inspirational example to set for the rest of the world.

Surrounded by lions! ๐Ÿฆ Such an exciting moment. We experienced it on our safari in #ngorongorocrater. Even before sunrise, we drove with our off-road vehicle through the former volcano. At the beginning of the trip it looked as if getting up early was not worth it. But it was. Suddenly, everything went really fast. A dozen lioness appeared from the grass of the savanna to hunt with their cubs - and we in the middle! In all honesty, we did not wait till the lioness began to hunt. Even if it is part of the natural cycle of life, we wanted to spare ourselves the pictures and to keep the wild big cats in mind as shown in the video: graceful, impressive and a bit fluffy.
