This little elephant was trying to get to quench its thirst at a dam recently, but hasn't quite figured out how to get the job done by trunk just yet. @trishala_n watched and giggled as the little calf tried repeatedly to copy mom's experienced trunk use, and had to resort to dunking its face in the water as if bobbing for marulas. It can take baby elephants up to a year to learn how to use their trunks properly. You'll get there, little one!

This is made from, among other things, a fleece pullover that I had to buy for my son more than 10 years ago when we were in Capetown because when we were packing for the trip I had not understood how cold it would be in South Africa in July and there we were sitting at lunch at the botanical gardens and his lips were actually turning bright purple and I felt like the world’s worst mother and realized I had to do something. So I went to the shop and bought the fleece. Anyway, only very recently was he willing to relinquish the fleece, although it has been many years since it has fit him, and even if it still fit him perhaps he’s too old to wear a fleece with cute baby animals on it. So I made him this ball pillow.

Tanzanian authorities on Saturday directed councils across the country to employ game scouts for preventing wild animals from wreaking havoc to human settlements and farms.
Constantine Kanyasu, the deputy minister of Natural Resources and Tourism, made the directive following reports of deaths of people and destruction of farm crops by wild animals that raided human settlements and farms in different parts of the country.
It's crazy how perfect nature can be sometimes. This rock is almost a perfect rectangle, formed only by the ocean and time. Seals and penguins inhabit it's surface, while that almost perfect 90 degree angle stares back into the ocean. ⛰️ 📷 #sonya7r #forfoxsake

I feel like these penguins are the real hero's here. They survive in an environment they don't really fit it. Maybe we can reflect on society in the same way. There is a certain level of defiance shown by these animals, to persist against all odds. Here's to the African Penguin, the animal surviving where it shouldn't. 🐧 📷 #sonya7r #forfoxsake

Just an island full of seals, lounging around avoiding the sharks and catching some rays. Arf. 😎🦈 Seal island is home to around 60k seals. 📷 #sonya7r #forfoxsake

Maybe these Zebra's are attempting their best Abbey Road album cover impression. Not bad. 🦓🦓. 📷 #sonya7r #forfoxsake

Had to snap some flowers and plants while in Bulawayo. The Flora variety was stunning. The colours mixed so well and we're so vibrant. 🌸 📷 #sonya7r #forfoxsake

Although Cheetahs 🐆 are members of the cat family, they have dog like non retractable claws. This limits their tree climbing ability but gives them a speed advantage. While the lion and leopard rely on getting close to their prey, the cheetah's speed gives it an advantage in the open savanna. We tracked this guy all morning all across Hwange National Park but it was worth it. Zoom zoom.

Sometimes the simplest things make the best photos. All I had was a cloudy sky and a simple seagull. 🕊️ 📷 #sonya7r #forfoxsake
