This week Cee’s Photography is taking a week off this week (and rightly deserved too…Head to her page and see the amazing weekly challenges she shares with us all) Cee’s Photography … But what do I do now?! I know I can give you all a Safari Live Update! It’s been nearly two months since I last gave you all one…Live Safari Update (21/09/15)
The first is the situation with the Birmingham Boys has calmed quiet a lot down. In fact there is the possibility that one of the prides of females from the Styx pride has given birth recently. Now I suspect that the fathers may actually be the Matimba Males…Lionesses however are actually quiet clever ladies. So they have been “fake mating” with the Birmingham Boys. This where a lady cat (a lot of the big cats do it) will fake mate with a Male so that the reigning Males will believe that the little cubs are actually theirs.
The other thing to note that the two Matimba males have not gotten themselves into any death matches with the BBoys, they have however, taken off and have a whole new area that they patrol.
One of the more interesting stories to have come from the Matimba males is that of the sub-adult “Junior of the Nkuhuma Pride” He’s an unusual story in that he has no other brother that he would usually head off on his own with, instead he seems to be hanging around the Nkuhuma pride all the time. This unusual as Junior is now 3 and a half years old, usually by now Junior would have been chased off by his Father and Uncles. We’ve all grown quiet fond of Junior, but this is the African Wild life … Anything can happen! Don’t you just adore his little mane! =D (Although I shouldn’t tease, he couldn’t quite easily take me down!)
