There is a world somewhere between reality and fiction. Although ignored by many, it is very real and so are those living in it. This forum is about the natural world. Here, wild animals will be heard and respected. The forum offers a glimpse into an unknown world as well as a room with a view on the present and the future. Anyone able to speak on behalf of those living in the emerald forest and the deep blue sea is invited to join.

Professional Guide Mark Tennant was following a pack of Wild Dogs when they started to hunt Wildebeest. The Wildebeest bulls did not take this lightly, the charge and injure his favourite Dog "Black Tip"

Massive Okavango hyenas killing a large crocodile. 

Hyaena are typically known to scavenge but the fearless foursome here at Tubu Tree like to find their own food sometimes; and at the risk of their own lives too. One morning we heard what sounded like hyaena fighting, so we headed in the direction of the noise. Four hyaena were seen jumping in all directions looking intently into the shallow water. Suddenly a huge jaw with sharp teeth was seen snapping at the hyaena which gave them a real fright, but this did not stop these hungry dogs from coming back and continuing the fight. A crocodile must have been crossing through the shallow waters to get to deep water when the hyaena came across him. The battle went on for some time and the tired crocodile finally succumbed to the jaws of death. The jubilant hyaena dragged their prize out of the water and started their feast.

That's crazy. Hyenas will try to kill anything that they can overpower

The chase!

Three Wild Dogs were on the hunt, chasing a herd of Spotted Deer and then Barasingha.

Usually, when the prey senses danger, they give out warning calls, but this time, there were none. That's because unlike cats, who rely on the element of surprise to hunt, wild dogs course over long distances in pursuit of their quarry, and the deer prefer to put as much distance between themselves and the dogs rather than stand their ground alarming as they would for a tiger or leopard.

This time, the wild dogs made two attempts at the deer and then relaxed. It was super exciting to witness one of the top predators of the Indian jungles in action!

"Densities of large mammalian herbivores were six times greater in areas without wolves, compared to those in which wolves were present, the researchers concluded. They also found that combinations of predators, such as wolves and bears, can create an important synergy for moderating the size of large herbivore populations."

Gaur mother stands her ground to protect her calf from a pack of dholes. According to the videographer, this confrontation lasted 3 hours and they had to leave as the park timing was near closing.
