This TR has grown a lot yesterday! :shock: :lol:

Firstly, your rednecked spurfowl is :thumbs_up: ID'ed
and so is the greater double-collared sunbird! :thumbs_up:

The lions you saw :big_eyes: - great sighting, btw!!! -
are Gina and her two boys. I've learned that the boys have
now left their mum.
And it was also the two boys on the morning of the 17th.
The boys are the youngest males in Addo. Looking at the
spots they still have, it can only be them. All other males
have darker and fuller manes.

Those Addo lions really are show offs! So great to see that
you found them more than once too. :thumbs_up:

Also, I like the photos of the yellow mongoose a lot!
And obviously the ellie shots. :clap:

Now for the outcome of the warthog stalk... :rtm: :lol:
Summer 2014 - Oz! It was awesome!
