East Africa Bush Tails

New arrivals – Sand Rivers Selous

One of the Lionesses from the Tagalala pride has had two cubs, they are around 3 months old now, the cubs provide excellent photo opportunities as they are so active compared to their tired mot her, biting her ears while she is trying to sleep.

The odds are stacked against their survival, only 80% of cubs will not make the first two years, Buffalo, Hyenas, Jackel, Martial Eagles, Snakes and Leopards are all enemies. If a new male takes over the pride, he will kill all the cubs.
We will be keeping a watchful eye on these two and keep you updated.
