Pythons can lie in wait for weeks at a time for a meal to come within striking distance. Once suitable prey is grabbed, pythons then wrap their muscular bodies around the animal to constrict the prey before swallowing whole.

“[Before] packing my things to go film the whales in Tonga, and before returning home to Europe after an epic three-year trip around the world; I had one last thing to do: hike Tongariro National Park in mid-winter,” writes Your Shot photographer Alexander Brown. “I wanted to camp under the stars, and photograph my tent with one of the volcanoes and Milky Way in the frame. It was cold, below 15 degrees that night. But my partner and I kept warm in this little tent we set up on the South Crater Lake.”
“Lovely! Nice mood and simplicity, but technically well executed.” — @natgeo photographer Charlie Hamilton James (@chamiltonjames) #YourShotPhotographer
Video by @BertieGregory. Extreme climber Alejo Sanchez descends down an enormous rock face deep in the heart of the unexplored Chiribiquete National Park, Colombia. When he reached the bottom of this cliff, he made a remarkable discovery. He found a massive panel of ancient paintings featuring jaguars, people and more. This area is home to many of these paintings, representing some of the earliest evidence of humans in the Amazon. I shot this whilst accompanying a team from Fundacion Herencia, an incredible group of people doing real 21st century exploration. It’s very humbling to know that there are still places on this planet we know almost nothing about. But despite it’s remoteness, it is still under threat.
We owe a huge thanks to Parks Colombia and the Colombian Ministry of Culture for their support. For more on this place, Stay tuned for @stevewinterphoto ‘s upcoming jaguar story for @natgeo Magazine. Also stayed tuned for our jaguar TV show for @natgeowild premiering in the US on December 10th. Follow @bertiegregory for more wildlife adventures!
