Challenge has finished
Willdlife and the weapons that nature gave them. Fangs, Claws, Talons, Horns, Antlers, Tusks, Stingers, etc. Lets see images of wildlife (in the wild and taken by you) "packing heat"... PROMINENTLY displaying their natural weapons. Please INCLUDE in the subject or notes section; the SPECIES of wildlife, AND the general LOCATION (biome / environment / ecosystem) in which the photograph was taken [see sample images]. NO CAPTIVE animals such as in zoos or artificial enclosures. The animals must be "Living Wild", so not domestic animals on a farm. Entries that do not list in the notes/description section Species AND the Location in which the image was taken will be Disqualified [if polite warning to withdraw and re-submit with full information is not heeded].
