Here's the rest of the story. For us a most memorable morning and our most rare sighting sofar. It alle happened just near the tarroad CB to LS near Zambhala. ( H4-2 ) at 11.00 in the morning

After playing a little the cub was forces in to tree by the mother warthog. She soon noticed she was too late for a rescue action.

After "playing" and screaming loud ( a bit of a horror movie and fascinating aat the same time ) the cub started eating.

Last four pics:

The first when the cub has eaten half of the baby warthog.

Image

When finished the cub looks satisfied with his whiskers colored red.

Image
It's only after the meal the cubs mum shows herself "half stalking" to the place the cub was feeding.

Image

Only to find her cub has left nothing for her.

Hi Daffy,
Not a happy ending at all.
The closest to that that I've seen had to do with an Ostrich. It was sitting, protecting its brood under it. When it stood up a Martial Eagle swooped down and flew away with one of the Ostrich's somewhat large offspring.

Another amazing thing that myself and Hoofhearted saw this holiday. Although very sad :cry: but still interesting to see.
