Hyacinth Macaws are native to central and eastern South America . It is the largest macaw and the largest flying parrot species in the world, though the flightless Kakapo of New Zealand can outweigh it at up to 3.5kg. In terms of length it is larger than any other species of parrot. Their popularity as pets has taken a heavy toll on their population in the wild. Birds in captivity fetch a price of around $9,000-$12,000 US.

Meet Smasher—the male in the background. That's the name Steve Winter gave this youngster, cooling off in a watering hole in Bandhavgarh National Park, after he slapped the automated camera trap until it stopped clicking. Both tigers are thought to have killed people, and Smasher is now in captivity. Photograph by Steve Winter www.stevewinterphoto.com

Red Fox catching mouse under snow With his exceptional hearing a red fox has targeted a mouse hidden under 2 feet of crusted snow. Springing high in the air he breaks through the crusted spring snow with his nose and his body is completely vertical as he grabs the mouse under the snow. by Michael Eastman

The very rare sight of a pride of lions successfully bringing down an elephant in broad daylight.  Only a handful of lion prides in Africa are know to have taught themselves to actively hunt elephants. About 12 lions including cubs were present. They waited calmly in the shade while this lion in this picture attacked.  This was likely the same pride (or relatives of) the lions that the BBC filmed attacking elephants at night for the Planet Earth series a few years ago: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-415243/BBC-face-complaints-lions-attack-elephants.html by Ed Hetherington Photography https://www.facebook.com/edhetheringtonphoto

A tiny Madagascar dwarf chameleon is thought to be the worlds smallest chameleon and measures less than 30mm from its snout to the tip of its tail. With a unique ability to blend into the background chameleons can be tricky to spot at the best of times but its almost impossible to see this little guy who is barely as big as a fingernail.

One moment this Bandhavgarh tiger was snoozing in the shade. The next, says Steve Winter, he charged "like a shot out of a cannon." Winter, who was photographing perched on the windshield of his open-top Jeep, jumped back down into his seat. The tiger veered off. Photograph by Steve Winter
