African Elephant (Loxodonta africana) foot. We're celebrating elephants all this week!! Of all the thousands of photos I captured while in South Africa, this is one of my favorites.  To me it symbolizes the uncertainty of the future of elephants as a species and us as humans.  Will we allow man's greed and selfishness to destroy these magnificent creatures for their tusks and how will it affect our lives if they no longer exist?  Did you know the number of elephants killed for their ivory between 2010 and 2012 was 100,000? (savetheelephants.org).

African Elephant (Loxodonta africana) calf.  He was kicking around a piece of dung and as it rolled away, he would chase after it.  We're celebrating Save the Elephant day today and all this week.  Did you know that the key threats to them are 1-Poaching for ivory; 2-Habitat loss and fragmentation due to human population expansion and land conversion⁣
3-Human-elephant conflict.  If you would like to get involved, visit https://www.savetheelephants.org/.⁣

Bighorn Sheep Lambs, Gardner Canyon, Yellowstone National Park.  I always get such a kick out of watching the lambs, they seem to have so much fun with each other.

Black-backed Jackal (Canis mesomelas), Kruger National Park.  Check out the photo from yesterday of Canis latrans and see how much they look alike!  Jackals are very vocal and communicate with each other using a loud yell or yap, growls and high pitched howls, particularly when prey is located.⁣

Coyote (Canis latrans), Sheridan, MT.  Make sure to stop by tomorrow to see the coyote's cousin Canis mesomelas and see how similar in looks they are.  Did you know they can run up to 65 kilometers (40 miles) an hour and can jump a distance of over 4 meters (13 feet)?⁣

Happy National Pet Day!! This is Houskee and she was a nurse pig.  What is a nurse pig you ask - well when the other pigs were not feeling well, she would take care of them and stay with them.⁣

Giant Kingfisher (Megaceryle maxima). While in South Africa we were able to see 4 different kingfishers.  I couldn't believe the size difference between the Malachite to this behemoth!

Crested Porcupine (Hystrix cristata) juvenile.  This is one animal I didn't think I would get to see when we were in South Africa.  We actually heard them before we saw them - hearing all their quills rattling together and then seeing them - amazing and priceless!! “Happiness is not something ready made. It comes from your own actions.” Dalai Lama⁣

Eastern Gray Squirrel (Sciurus carolinensis). I am always amazed at how inventive animals are when it comes to getting something they want.  This squirrel couldn't reach the seeds in the feeder by sitting on the branch, so he hung by his back legs which gave him just the extra umpff he needed.⁣

American Robin (Turdus migratorius) nestlings.  I was blest to have the robin's build a nest where I could watch the development of their offspring.  What a great learning experience.  I was amazed at how quickly they changed from day to day.⁣
