A brave seal appears to try a daring rescue attempt - by chasing after a great white shark near Seal Bay, South Africa. Pictured hot on the trail of the deadly predator, the stout-hearted swimmer seems determined to save a fellow seal trapped in the jaws of the colossal killer. But although the seal may appear to be making a valiant effort to save a friend in need, it was in fact using a clever survival tactic. By sticking close to the tail and body of the shark, the marine mammal is actually able to stay well clear of the sharks powerful jaws. Picture: DAVID JENKINS / CATERS NEWS

An elephant calf tried to approach an old buffalo bull and was taught a lesson it will never forget. The calf was with its herd at a watering hold Addo Elephant National park, South Africa, when the buffalo ventured towards the water. The elephant ran towards the buffalo but the larger animal picked up the young calf and tossed it four metres in the air. Luckily, the elephant was not hurt. Picture: Conrad Cramer / Barcroft Media

Fighting Jackals! In the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park Daniel Dolpire came across about nineteen black backed jackals as they fought over a wildebeest carcass.
