Morning All,

Here are some pics taken from the trap cam at Leeuwdrill, the dates and times might be wrong since the batteries have been changed and the cam resets itself.

Hi there,

Its a pleasure, no worries. Well the lions have killed another 5 Eland close to the waterhole at Twee Rivieren Camp. We did go and investigate the carcasses and they were all killed by Lions.

Seems the Eland are taking a knock ........

KG, how does this time of feast impact on the Lion pride birth rates ? I would think that numbers and survival rates would increase dramatically .

Why I am wondering is that on the photo is seems as if the lions have not yet started eating :doh:

Metoo want caracal... :doh:

Awesome activity! And another naughty boy. :twisted:
We saw him at Houmoed with his Mrs. when we were there.
He seemed to have an infected eye back then, but it looks
well healed now. :thumbs_up:

Spectacular photos, KG. I too am surprised to see animals haven't taken advantage of the carcass - must be lots of opportunities around.
