Best Shots of Animals taken in 2017

Animal Kingdom is a different world altogether. Its a world without rules, or maybe just one rule 'Survival of the Fittest'. Some photographers manage to reach out to these animals in their natural habitat and capture some moments from their lives. These exceptional pictures taken in 2017 show a wide range of animals dealing with their daily routine.

Two marine iguanas seem unfazed by the presence of one of their mummified brethren, dead likely from starvation, on Isla Fernandina. Endemic to the Galápagos, these raccoon-size lizards forage for algae along the shore; larger males dive into the ocean.

A shaggy male gelada pauses during his morning ascent from a cliff above East Africa’s Great Rift Valley. Hundreds of the world’s only grass-eating monkeys thrive on this plateau in the central Ethiopian Highlands, where villagers for centuries have protected the vegetation

Mother macaques bear one baby every 20 months or so and do most of the parenting. Wee ones nurse for less than a year but stick close for several more. Young males eventually leave to vie for position in another group.

Manta Trust marine biologist Guy Stevens measures himself against a manta ray in the Islas Revillagigedo reserve, where a 100-square-mile expansion has been proposed.

A California sea lion hunts for fish on a kelp paddy at Cortes Bank, a seamount off San Diego. It’s a trove of marine life that deserves protection, conservationists say

Some 110 million years ago, this armored plant-eater lumbered through what is now western Canada, until a flooded river swept it into open sea. The dinosaur’s undersea burial preserved its armor in exquisite detail. Its skull still bears tile-like plates and a gray patina of fossilized skins

Sled dogs rest inside their dog trucks before the ceremonial start of the Iditarod in Anchorage. The race used to begin in the biggest city in Alaska, but warming weather and trail conditions have made it purely for show.

Small groups of endemic Galapagos sea lions on Isla Isabela’s east coast hunt for yellowfin tuna, abundant here, by herding them into bays and then forcing them onto the rocks or dispatching them with a bite to the head. Sea lions are expected to decline as the climate changes.
