- #Zebra 🦓 Zebras are closely related to horses but they’re not the same species. They belong to the same family (called Equidae) and they can even breed with each other, but zebras aren’t just striped horses because they have evolved separately. Zebras also have different temperaments compared to horses. They’re more aggressive and far more dangerous. Did you know that zebras are black with white stripes (not white with black stripes) 😁 Recent research also shows that a zebra’s stripes may have evolved to keep biting insects away – the monochrome pattern seems to affect to the visual systems of flies. During our trip we saw approximately 10 zebras. The Zebra is the national animal of #Botswana. In the last pictures you can also see the national bird of Bostwana - #koribustard
- GIRAFFE DIARIES | CHOBE NATIONAL PARK | BOTSWANA
Though Chobe is called the Land of Elephants, you would be amazed at the Giraffe population in the region.
Giraffe have the loosest social structure in the animal kingdom with the groups changing in size constantly as individuals move from one place to another. Despite this loose social structure male Giraffe tussle for dominance for it is the stronger that gets the females when they are in heat.
The fighting between male Giraffe is an extraordinary affair with the two combatants pushing and shoving with their backsides to gain ascendency - and hitting each other with their necks and heads. The fights can be vicious although seldom does one get badly hurt. One will always back off before serious injuries.

- Photo by @daisygilardini | Play is very important in each animal species as it helps the newborns grow stronger, build self-confidence, and learn to socialize and hunt. Besides the biological importance of playing, this behavior give us —the photographers — great photo opportunities. Here, two lion cubs play in Chobe National Park in Botswana. The International Union for Conservation of Nature lists lions as “vulnerable” on their red list of endangered species. The population is decreasing and is down to 23,000-39,000 individuals left. Major threats to the lion population include human-wildlife conflict, territory fragmentation, habitat loss, and trophy hunting.

- Photo by @daisygilardini | Baby elephant are simply adorable. The mini version of the biggest animal on Earth evokes immediate feelings of tenderness in just about everyone. After a gestation period of 18 to 22 months— almost two years—the calf is born weighing around 250 pounds (115 kg) and stands about 3 feet (1 meter) tall. Baby elephants don’t really know how to use their trunk for the first 6-8 months of their life. Before they learn how to use it properly for eating, drinking, and bathing, they swing it around in an extremely comical way. This young elephant fell down while playing with an older calf. Balancing with his trunk and legs, he could finally stand up and start chasing the other fellow again. I love to spend time observing them—it's so much fun!
