Animal pictures of the week: 1 April 2011

A giant vulture and a hungry jackal fight over a pile of bones. Photographer Stephen Earle snapped the scene from a hide as the two animals battled at Giant's Castle Game Reserve in Kwazulu Natal, South Africa. The vulture backed away following a one-minute stand-off with the black-backed jackal. Picture: Stephen Earle/solent

Mr Neep says: "My photograph of the lioness with her offspring is my favourite. I liked the way she licked her cub because it reminded me of a human mother wiping dirt from a child's face with a tissue." Picture: Elliot Neep / Solent News
