February flew by! Mr prickly pants can’t wait for summer and neither can we! 🌊🌞
🇺🇸 First time I entubated a Jaguar! Just have to be careful with all the sharp teeth around you!ㅤ
This animal was under anesthesia because she is part of a research project that is trying to inseminate jaguars artificially. For that to work she spends 2 months previous to the procedure taking meds that can control her cycle, making sure the insemination happens when she is ovulating. ㅤ
🇧🇷 A primeira vez em que entubei uma Onça pintada! Só precisa ter cuidado com todos esses dentes afiados por alí! ㅤ
Essa onça foi anestesiada porque é parte de um projeto de pesquisa que esta tentando inseminar onças artificialmente. Para que isso de certo ela passa 2 meses antes do procedimento recebendo medicamentes que controlem seu ciclo estral, para que ela esteja ovulando na hora do procedimento. ㅤ

Oribi Gorge is a canyon in southern KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa. It is cut by the Mzimkulwana River. The gorge is approximately 400 metres (1,300 ft) deep, and almost 5 kilometres (3.1 mi) wide at its widest. Erosion by these rivers have carved out nearly 30 kilometres (19 mi) of spectacular kloofs and crags, covered with subtropical vegetation. In the gorge, the dense forest on the sandstone slopes is home to various small mammals, while the large leguaans excavate their burrows along the riverbanks.
At the base of the cliffs of both gorges the basement rocks are part of the Kaapvaal Craton, which are over 1000 million years old. The cliffs themselves are formed from sandstone deposited about 365 million years ago. The road through Oribi Gorge was built by Italian prisoners of war.
Oribi Gorge derives its name from the oribi, a small antelope that lives in the gorges.
