Everything in #Australia could hurt you, and that includes technicolour sea slugs that look like they could be from outer space. The ‘Blue Dragon’ washed up on the shores of Queensland, Australia earlier this month. Although these #sea slugs are small, they feast on the poisonous Portuguese man o’ war.

We made our way to Ranthambhore National Park in India with the goal of seeing tigers and this was our first of several sightings. We were able to stay with this female most of the morning as she patrolled her territory. It was a privilege to see her in the wild and to learn about what is being done to protect them and their habitat. Starting tomorrow, November 27, Nat Geo WILD will present a week dedicated to nature’s fiercest felines—big cats—creatures of magnificent strength, ferocity and beauty that are rapidly facing extinction. Populations of lions, tigers, cheetahs, leopards, jaguars, and other top felines are declining at an alarming rate. They are victims of habitat loss and degradation as well as conflicts with humans. More than a television event Big Cat Week is an extension of the Big Cats Initiative, a long-term commitment by the National Geographic Society to stop poaching, save habitat and sound the call that big steps are needed to save big cats around the world. This global initiative actively supports on-the-ground conservation projects and education to help stem and eventually reverse the rapid disappearance of big cat populations. I will be posting Big Cat images and stories here and on my account at @andywcoleman all week. #bigcatweek #bigcats @natgeocreative

We caught up to this young leopard resting in some brush beneath a tree. He spent the early evening hunting but lost an impala to hyena before being able to get it safely up into a tree. Leopard will protect its kill, if possible, but are smart enough to know when they are outnumbered by hyena, who are often larger than the big cat and have powerful, crushing jaws. Big Cat Week continues tonight on Nat Geo WILD with The Lakeshore Killers - following three male lions on their quest for dominance deep in the heart of Africa.

Played peekaboo this morning with this cutie in the kelp forests. These harbor seals are so playful. They often will imitate you, I kept raising my hand and it would lift a fin to me. #underwater #sandiego ________________________________________

The Incredible Iguazú waterfalls located on the Iguazú river. There are points in the cities of Foz do Iguaçu (Brazil), Puerto Iguazú (Argentina) and Ciudad del Este (Paraguay) which have access to the Iguazu River and the borders of all three nations may be seen, a popular tourist attraction for visitors to the three cities. In 2011, Iguazu Falls was named as one of New Seven Wonders of Nature. Tag someone you love ❤️!! Photo by Mike Theiss @ExtremeNature
