View natgeo's Instagram Photo by Stephanie Sinclair @stephsinclairpix @tooyoungtowed // Eight-year-old brides, Tehani and Ghada, begin preparations for a family meal at their home outside Hajjah, Yemen. Child marriage has long been an issue in Yemen, one of the few countries in the region without a legal minimum age of marriage. Attempts to set 18 as the minimum marrying age collapsed with the outbreak of the conflict in 2015 and it is estimated that, now, child marriage rates could be much higher. A UNFPA-INTERSOS assessment, which interviewed over 250 community members, local leaders and survivors of child marriage for insight into how families are coping with the conflict, stated that most participants “were of the opinion that child marriage has increased in their community. They all stated that the conflict pushed the practice,” according to the assessment’s findings. While more comprehensive assessments are difficult to do in conflict situations, the report also suggests that girls are being married off even younger. Of the child marriage survivors interviewed in the northern part of the country, 72 per cent were married between ages 13 and 15. Of those in the south, 62 per cent were married before age 16.

View natgeo's Instagram Video by @joelsartore | Although incredibly vibrant and bold in color, the veiled chameleon would be almost impossible to see amongst the dense leaves of highly vegetated parts of the Arabian peninsula where it’s found. They’re quite shy around other, bigger species and may curl up into the fetal position when frightened. However, veiled chameleons (especially males) can get very aggressive toward one another. During breeding season, males perform for females by doing a courtship dance involving head rolls and chin rubs.

A Mako Shark rises towards the surface in the late day light of New Zealand's coastal waters. Makos are ambush predators, often attacking fish - like tuna - from below. 
The numbers of Makos have declined worldwide due to overfishing and the increasing global demand for shark fins. They are currently listed as vulnerable by the IUCN. 
Learn more about Mako Sharks from the feature story about these impressive animals in the August issue of National Geographic Magazine, @NatGeo.

Hummingbirds get confused when they are upside down and they hold still for a couple of seconds before flipping over and flying away.  Chris is using this brief window to get a precise measurement of the bird's weight.  You can see on the scale that this male weighs just 1.834 grams!  That makes it the smallest species of bird in the world.  Check out the story in the July issue of natgeo to learn more about hummingbirds.

Many of the young elephants at the facility have been orphaned after their mothers were killed by poachers. I was there specifically to photograph an young elephant called Roi who’s mother had been killed with a poison arrow in the Masai Mara. As elephants are social animals they need attention and affection - here Julius is giving just a little of what the mother would have given. 1563436464225418927_787132

A Shortfin Mako Shark attacks a mullet bait, towed by a fisherman in the waters of New Zealand. Makos are one of the fastest animals in the sea, capable of swimming at speeds of over 45 mph. 
Sport fishermen frequently use a mullet bait - towed at speeds of nearly 10 knots - to try and catch marlin, but Mako Sharks often attack the bait instead. 
Photographer Brian Skerry (@BrianSkerry) built a special tow camera and used a high-speed video system to capture this astounding behavior in slow motion.

Learn more about these amazing animals in the August issue of National Geographic Magazine (@NatGeo), with a story featuring my photographs.

Close-up view of a Mako Shark in the waters off of New Zealand. Makos are one of the fastest fish in the sea, capable of speed bursts of up to 60mph. Of all shark species, they also have one of the largest brains, relative to body size. 
Makos are an endothermic shark, meaning that they can generate heat within their bodies. This adaptation allows them to swim into cooler waters to feed on oily fish, giving them great strength and fueling their powerful muscles. 
The numbers of Makos have declined worldwide due to overfishing and the increasing gloval demand for shark fins. They are currently listed as vulnerable by the IUCN. 
Learn more about Mako Sharks from the feature story about these impressive animals in the August issue of National Geographic Magazine, @NatGeo.

Once common in the wild, this species is now critically endangered mainly due to chytridiomycosis, an amphibian fungus that is wiping out frogs in Latin America.
