African ELEPHANT bull - giving photographer a bluff charge

TOM-852 African ELEPHANT bull - giving photographer a bluff charge. Mana Pools National Park, Zimbabwe. Loxodonta africana This bull was feeding on Acacia tree seed pods (small orange-yellow clumps near feet). He was treating us like he does baboons - a short bums rush usually scares them away from this valuable food source. We sat still and he went back to feeding on the pods, eventually taking some within three feet of where we sat.

Emperor scorpion

Emperor scorpion (Pandinus imperator). Also known as the imperial scorpion, this arachnid is the largest of all scorpion species. It is fairly docile and has a sting of similar strength to a bee's; living mainly off insects and other invertebrates, but occasionally small lizards and mice. Emperor scorpions are native to West African forests and perform an elaborate mating dance where the male grasps the female's pincers and circles her, depositing his sperm and then manouevering the female over it for fertilisation

Woodmouse emerging from a rotten tree

Woodmouse (Apodemus sylvaticus) peering out of a rotten tree. Also known as the long tailed field mouse, this nocturnal mouse is found throughout Europe and is Britain's most common rodent. It lives in many habitats, including woodland and farmland, and feeds off invertebrates, berries, seeds and nuts. Woodmice are an important source of food for birds of prey, with the breeding success of owls often corresponding to the fluctuating population of woodmice. Woodmice produce complicated borrows and live communally off stored food in the winter
