The hippo are doing what is natural for them.. fighting over territory and the right to mate. On land, despite it's size, a hippo is surprisingly agile.

appealing image of meerkats is surprisingly lifelike. Meerkats are known for their sentry like poses atop their nests.

Above you see a giraffe in a typical splay-legged stance, bending its long neck while stooping to drink. The image is all the more realistic to me because it conveys a sense of fragility and aloofness.

The leopard in the tree, like any member of the cat family, is relaxing - but on his guard. He's fast and he's powerful. Click on the image for a larger example.

It's difficult to tell what is going through the mind of our belligerent looking white rhino. One thing we know for sure.. He'll take nonsense from no-one!

The majestic appeal of the queen of the beasts is captured in this excellent example of a lioness at repose with her cubs, and ever watchful.

The buffalo pictured here is amazingly real. He stares head-on at the artist, nostrils flaring, in a whimsical almost humanlike pose.

The bull elephant pictured here is guarding his family in an aggressive stance
