Spotting a meal: This jaguar stalked an unlucky anaconda it saw resting on the bank of the Cuiabá River before struggling with it for over two minutes in the Pantanal, Mato Grosso, Brazil on September 29th 2017.
Anaconda kills by jaguars have only been observed on a handful of occasions and very few photographs of this incredibly rare behaviour are known to exist.
Chris Brunskill spent a month observing the jaguars before his patience was rewarded with this scene.

President Donald Trump has nominated Kirstjen Nielsen to be secretary of the Department of Homeland Security. “There is nothing more valuable than to feel safe in your own country,” Nielsen says. Here’s what you should know:
Nielsen would become the second woman confirmed to serve as homeland security secretary, if the Senate approves. She was chief of staff for then-DHS Secretary John Kelly — he’s now Trump’s chief of staff at the White House. Nielsen is the first DHS nominee to have actually worked there before.

This photo taken in 2003 by photojournalist Chris Hondros shows former Liberian warfighter Joseph Duo jumping up in the air after he fired a rocket-propelled grenade at rebels during the Liberian civil war.
Joseph Duo was encouraged to go school by the photojournalist at the end of the war that left the West African nation grossly decimated with about 250, 000 persons killed and over 2 million displaced.
Today, Joseph Duo, who studied criminal justice at the university, is a candidate in the Liberian general election in which 984 aspirants across the country are vying for 73 seats in the legislature.

Former Arsenal great, Ray Parlour believes Nigerian midfielder, Alex Iwobi can become one of the best in the world if he adds more goals to his game.Iwobi scored the goal that booked Nigeria’s ticket to the Russia 2018 World Cup on Saturday.
The former midfielder, who played alongside another Nigerian, Kanu Nwankwo in the Arsenal ‘Invincibles’ of the late 90s and early 2000s, rates Iwobi as one of the most promising midfielders in the game.
He, however, advised the Super Eagles’ midfielder to work harder in his tracking and defensive duties if he is to reach the height commensurate to his talent.

congratulations to the Super Eagles of Nigeria as they've qualified for the #2018WorldCup in Russia. The Super Eagles did enough to secure a place at the 2018 FIFA World Cup after a hardfought 1-0 victory over Zambia in Uyo.
A 74th-minute strike from substitute Alex Iwobi against the Chipolopolo proved the difference as Nigeria became the first African team to qualify for next year’s World Cup.
Iwobi had only been on the pitch for eight minutes before firing past Kennedy Mwene in the Zambian goal after latching onto a low cross from the right from fullback Abdullahi Shehu.
It was the Arsenal forward’s second international goal. His first had also come against the Zambians during Nigeria’s 2-1 victory in Ndola at the start of the World Cup qualifiers.
