Lion (Panthera Leo)
This month both the western and southern pride has been very successful with hunting. We were very privileged to watch the two lionesses from the southern pride hunting wildebeest on Serengeti plains road was early morning as we watched the young lioness from the southern pride stalking the herd of wildebeest as her mother hung back and waited. They were successful with the hunt but that is also due to moms help. Its great to see how the two lionesses are working as one unit and due to their good teamwork it ensures that they are well fed and healthy. Lions will try hunting at least every second day due to their quick metabolism they digest their food very quickly so it’s of importance to hunt as often as possible.
