Mother cheetah and cub.  The following from "Nature": Because the mother cheetah raises the cub alone the cub is vulnerable to predation by other carnivores on the African savannah,  usually the lion and hyena, especially when she is hunting.  Just as alarming, the mother cheetah may down its prey with tremendous speed, only to have the prey taken away by larger predators, typically lions, who travel in packs ("prides").  For more (great article), see: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cheetah

The Dhole also called the Asiatic wild dog or Indian wild dog, is a species of canid native to South and Southeast Asia. The dholes are classed as endangered by the IUCN, due to ongoing habitat loss, depletion of its prey base, competition from other predators, persecution and possibly diseases from domestic and feral dogs. In the summer the dhole reverts to his darker, sleeker coat. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dhole

Cassowary male with his brood of chicks. Cassowaries are shy, but when disturbed they are capable of inflicting serious or even fatal injuries to dogs and people. They are solitary birds except during courtship, egg-laying, and sometimes around ample food supplies. The male incubates the eggs for 50–52 days, then protects the brown-striped chicks, who stay in the nest for about nine months, defending them fiercely against all predators, including humans…

The Atlas Moth (Attacus atlas), see the pictures below, is a large moth found in the tropical and subtropical forests of southeast Asia (area between southern China, India, Malay archipelago and Indonesia). A moth is closely related to the butterfly. The Atlas Moth is also known as the Snake-Head Moth because the tips of its wings are shaped and marked to imitate a real snake's head, complete with eye, to scare off predators.

Beluga Whale (Delphinapterus leucas) by Steve Snodgras, wikipedia: Unlike many dolphins and whales, the seven vertebrae in the neck are not fused together, allowing the animal to turn its head laterally without needing to rotate its body. This gives the head a lateral manoeuvrability that allows an improved field of view, helps in catching prey and evading predators, and movement in deep water. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beluga_whale #Beluga_Whale
