Some additional pics from the African bush
A lion on the Madikwe reserve. [This is a 7 year old male who is in the process of usurping the place of an alpha male who has been the leader of the pack [pride] for 14 years. We saw the older guy and another 14 year old alpha male and it was clear that they know they are on the way out. Our ranger predicts that it will end with a knock down drag out fight which the old guys will lose.]
A jackal on the reserve. They eat whatever they can get their hands on, including the waste discarded by other animals.
