Photo by @daisygilardini | Penguins eat a lot of seafood, as you might have guessed. That means they ingest a lot of salt without realizing it. Saltwater is no better for penguins than it is for humans, but penguins have developed a unique way of dealing with it. A gland just above their eye — the supraorbital gland — filters salt from their . The salt is then expelled through their bill, often by sneezing. That’s why penguins sometimes appear to be suffering from a cold. They’re not sneezing really. They’re getting rid of excess salt. They still need fresh water to survive, though, just as other birds do. They drink water from pools and streams, and eat snow. Follow me @daisygilardini for more images and stories behind the scenes

At twelve weeks old, the largest of the four pups takes his turn with at the ribcage of a muskox. Born with blue eyes, his have already turned to the amber color of an wolf.

Photo @jasonedwardsng We all like to believe we’re performing to the best of our ability but the reality is often quite different. Lion like all cats, are induced ovulators. The female does not pass an egg unless she is mating repeatedly. The barbs on the males triggers the process when the female is in oestrus. . However there’s a catch, the male Lion must mate with the female repeatedly up to 260x in twenty four hours whilst also keeping other males at bay. This is exhausting and dangerous work, and if more than one female is receptive then its staggeringly difficult. . Please join me @jasonedwardsng for images and stories from my National Geographic assignments. .

Video by Ronan Donovan @ronan_donovan // What do you think of wild wolves? Should they be allowed to roam freely, as they have for millennia, or should they be allowed only in those far reaching wilderness areas where humans rarely venture? If you’re curious about wolves and wilderness, I’d like to share with you a new three-part special event premiering this Sunday, August 25, from 8-11pm ET, on Nat Geo WILD. Come join me as I travel to the High Arctic, to a landscape uninhabited by humans, in pursuit of the legendary white wolf. These wolves have never been hunted, they are fearless and free, offering a chance to learn more about this mysterious social predator.

Photo by @daisygilardini | Magellanic penguins from South America are closely related to the African, the Humboldt and the Galapagos penguins. The all four species are in fact known as banded penguins and also penguins. This funny name come from the fact that all of them make a sound similar to a donkey’s call.

Video 🎥 by @alexbraczkowski and @luke_ochse Leon, a young 3 year-old lion peers out from the branches of an African caper bush. With few large trees available in their territory, lions in Queen Elizabeth National Park Uganda will look for shade anywhere they can, including bushes with spiny branches or even euphorbia (cactus-like) trees. With temperatures regularly exceeding 95 degrees in this equatorial savanna, anyone can feel for the lions 🦁 follow @alexbraczkowski for more shots and facts about big cats around the world 🌍 🐆 . . . . .

Photos by @CristinaMittermeier // When I was diving in the Galapagos, surrounded by a healthy ecosystem full of sharks, sea turtles and fish, I couldn’t help but feel disheartened by the fact that we humans more than 11,000 sharks every single hour. As awful as that number is, the good news is that if we act together, we have the power to .
