Wildlife Photographer of the Year - the Natural History Museum's competition that pits nature snapper versus nature snapper in an aesthetic battle to the death, where only one creative can emerge victorious - is back! The jury has whittled down the selection from 50,000 entries down to just 25, and this year there are some doozies. We've got a smokey fox, a bear in therapy, a leaping squirrel and a heck of a lot of furry dudes just settling in for a nice cuddle and a nap. Lovely stuff.
You can go see all of these photos for yourself at the Natural History Museum. We've put some of our favourites below, but the full shortlist is online here, and just waiting for your votes. You get to decide who wins, and more importantly, who loses and is fed to lions. It's a cruel, cruel competition.
