Pictures of large herbivorous animals, mostly from the African continent go to make up these herbivores images. These photos of big African herbivores and other large herbivore images show the vast diversity in the size and location of these plant-eating animals. From the African Elephant (Loxodonta africana), the giants of the savannahs and often seen and photographed during any of our Kruger Park photo safaris. Equally the small and furry Brants’s Whistling Rat (Parotomys brantsii) often also photographed on our popular photo safaris to the arid deserts of the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park in South Africa.


Definition of a Herbivore

A herbivore is an animal anatomically and physiologically adapted to eating plant material, for the main component of its diet.

Herbivores Photo Gallery - Images from around the world

You can imagine that the planets vast numbers of feeding herbivores have a huge effect on the planet’s vegetation,  this feeding action is called herbivory and I urge you all to explore further and read what influences this action has on our planet’s eco-systems, it’s interesting reading.

I find it’s always difficult to decide which photographs to choose for any portfolio and the herbivores photo gallery was no different, despite the tours we undertake providing ample opportunity to photograph an amazing array of photos of mainly African herbivores, portfolio photos always remain a difficult choice.

However, the good news is our professionally lead Kruger Park safaris and guided wildlife tours or any of our custom tours enable the amateur photographer to come away with an array of herbivore animal pictures for his or her own portfolio.
