Pretty ugly birds! by jozi1
Marabou Storks (Leptoptilos crumeniferus) are predominantly scavengers and compete with vultures for food, but occasionally will take live prey if the opportunity arises such as insects, frogs, birds and rodents. These were part of 5 together in an open field near Londolozi,South Africa.

Elephant (Loxodonta africana) by Debby Townsend
Going from one camp to another within the Kruger National Park in South Africa, we came across this one Male Elephant. He was all by himself and looked rather sad. I see so many Elephants but it never seems to be enough.

African Elephants, Serengeti National Park, Tanzania. by Carole-Anne
Enjoying a drink. African Elephant, Loxodonta Africana, Serengeti National Park, Tanzania, East Africa. Elephants must have access to water and enjoy spending time washing, playing and cooling off. African Elephants are classified as endangered. They are victims of large-scale poaching and habitat loss due to rapid human expansion.
