"Tiger cubs are taken care of by their mother until they are about 2- or 3-years-old. During this period the mother trains her cubs to attack, hunt, and survive; protecting them from intruding male tigers and other predators. " 📷 + text by Sarosh Lodhi (@saroshngp)

“Have you ever witnessed a myna bird perched on a Barasingha deer’s forehead? This is actually a very common occurrence at the Kanha Tiger Reserve in India. Often, an insect will land on the Barasingha’s forehead, which makes an easy meal and a comfy resting place for the myna bird.” 🐦Photo and text by Varun Thakkar (@varunthakkar156)

The Grand Prismatic Spring is a beautiful rainbow of bacteria. 🍭The center of the spring bubbles with extremely hot water, where virtually nothing can live but bright blue water. As the spring expands outward, the water cools - creating specific temperatures where different organisms thrive (yellow = cyanobacteria). The different water environments create an array of colors, which is why the spring looks like a circle of rainbow magic. 🌈✨

Have you ever witnessed a 200-foot high superburst from the Great Fountain geyser at YellowStone National Park? This geyser erupts every 9-15 hours and is the only predictable geyser in the Lower Geyser Basin. 😱 Tag someone you want to take a trip to Wyoming with to see this geyser and the park for yourselves 😜🌲.

Have you met Hamish yet? 😍 Hamish is the first polar bear cub to be born in the UK in over 25 years. Right now, he weighs about 44 pounds but he will continue to grow bigger and bigger every day. Eventually, he could even grow bigger than his mom, Victoria. You can say hello to Hamish and Victoria at the @highlandwpark. 🐻🐻

"The bluer the ice, the older the iceberg is - or the less oxygen it contains. Watching these giant icebergs calving of the Greenlandic ice cap is like going back in time to see our planet as it once was."

Can you believe that a baby panda is born blind --at about the size of a stick of butter -- before it grows up to be a 300 pound panda adult? Panda moms are constantly holding their cubs because a teeny tiny panda baby is very fragile and needs a LOT of attention. 💕 Thank you Mom for all of the effort you put into making sure that I grew up to be a fat panda. 🐼 .

“China is home to some of the most intimidating cliffs ever, especially when walking a 1 inch rope across a gap like this. But with the blessing of the monk (look closely at the rock on the left) this walked seemed a bit more peaceful.” 📷+ text by Ryan Robinson (@handsomerobinson)
