Life in the wild really is red in tooth and tusk.. as this buffalo discovered when it unwisely butted an elephant. The killer elephant, in Masai Mara, Kenya, impaled the unfortunate beast on its tusks, lifting the 500kg buffalo high into the air, before dropping its lifeless body again.

A dramatic standoff between a jackal and a vulture who brazenly attempted to steal his snack, a wildebeest bone. The jackal thought he had lunch sorted when, out of nowhere, a vulture descended from the sky and attempted to snatch the bone from him. The vulture tried its best to intimidate the jackal with its towering wings, but ultimately failed as the jackal clung onto the bone.
