The lappet-faced vulture is the largest vulture species in Africa. Sadly, it is also an endangered species, due to human encroachment. In this season of #TheZooSD, a pair of sandiegozoo's lappet-faced vultures produce and egg, much to the delight of the zoo's staff.

We rescued him in 2017 at Gupo Meat Market in South Korea. He was sold to a customer as he was being beaten. But when he was being dragged down the street, he broke free taking flight across the highway. . Three slaughters took off after him. He was hit by a car, but still made his way through the streets. As he turned the corner we were able to catch him and get him to safety. . We transported him to a nearby hospital where he was treated for broken ribs and internal bruising. . He’s been in his forever home for over three years now — living a life filled with love. And learning a little more each day that he can trust people. .

Photo by marlondutoit The mighty Jaguar, 3rd largest feline on our planet & impressive in so many ways. If you take a look at that head the one thing that tends to stand out is the sheer size & bulk of it. It’s in possession of the strongest bite force of any cat in relation to it’s body size. That means were a lion the size of a Jaguar, it would have less impressive bite strength than the Jaguar, an impressive statistic! When you look at how Jaguars hunt the powerful cayman in the waters of the Pantanal, they deliver a swift & well-directed bite to the back of the head directly into the skull & brain. That bite force is pit to great use & effect. Pantanal, Mato Grosso, Brazil. #wild #brazil #natures #wildlife #onca #jaguar #animals #natures #pantanal #matogrosso
