The gorgeous leopard is so strong and comfortable in trees that it often hauls its prey into the branches. By dragging the bodies of large animals aloft it hopes to keep them safe from scavengers such as hyenas. Leopards frequently also hunt from trees, where their spotted coats allow them to blend with the leaves until they spring with a deadly pounce.

A female polar bear scans the ice flow in Svalbard while her cubs curiously keep an eye on me. Mother polar bears teach their cubs when and where to get on and off the ice, where to travel safely, and very importantly, how to hunt successfully. I took this photograph right after the female had nursed one of her cubs. #svalbard #polar #polarbears #arctic #savingthearctic #climatechange #bwsp #conservation #expedition #mattiasklum #cubs #mom #predator @natgeo @natgeocreative @thephotosociety @mattiasklumcollection @bigworldsmallplanet
Home sweet home! Just returned from an under water film assignment with my dear colleague and friend @olahogberg in Eastern Africa for @wwf . I thoroughly enjoy working in Africa but coming home to my family in gorgeous Sweden is hard to beat!

This tropical Nepenthes pitcher plant is one of the spectacular endemic species I just can't resist in the Raja Ampat archipelago of Western Papua, Indonesia. It's like walking into the funky world of Salvador Dali encountering this piece of art! This is a Carnivorous plant that derive some or most of nutrients from trapping and consuming animals or protozoans, typically insects and other arthropods. Nepenthes like other carnivorous plants have adapted to grow in places where the soil is thin or poor in nutrients.

Some of my favorite oaks just a stones throw from our house, Uppsala, Sweden. The oak is held in high regard across most cultures in Europe. The oak was sacred to gods like Zeus, Jupiter, Dagda and of course Thor. Druids frequently practised their rituals in oak groves. Royalty has always had an association with oak trees too; ancient kings adorned themselves with crowns of oak leaves!

Thank you nature! Luck is always a welcomed ingredient in my work! While following a group of Hippos in Tanzania's Selous Game Reserve a group of giraffes showed up in the background and surprised me by crossing the river. Beautiful in the landscape! I said out loud to myself; now all we need is a nice big yawn from the closest hippo... And voilà! It's no secret that hippos love water, which is why the Greeks named them the "river horse." Hippos can spend more than 16 hours a day submerged in rivers and lakes to keep their massive bodies cool under the hot African sun. Hippos are graceful in water, good swimmers, and can hold their breath underwater for up to five minutes!

Listen to this! This bat-eared Yoda-like creature is a small, African fox known for its enormous ears, which are over 13 centimeters (5 inches) long. The ears of the bat-eared fox are full of blood vessels that shed heat and help keep the fox cool; they also give the animal a very good sense of hearing. The bat-eared fox is first and foremost an insect specialist that uses its large ears to locate its prey. 80–90% of their diet is harvester termites. When this particular species of termite is not available, bat-eared foxes feed on other species of termites and have also been observed consuming other arthropods such as crickets, moths, ants, beetles, grasshoppers, millipedes, scorpions, spiders, and quite rarely birds, reptiles, small mammals and truffles! Fossil records show this cool looking canid to first appear during the middle Pleistocene, about 800,000 years ago. Took this photo in incredible Botswana! #batearedfox #bat ##big #ears #fox #africa #iucn #conservation #science @thephotosociety @bigworldsmallplanet @natgeocreative @mattiasklumcollection @natgeo
