I saw mention of some lions bleeding from the mouth on the Kgalagadi Facebook page. It was suggested they had some kind of illness :( has anyone heard/seen this as I would hate to think of them suffering. Pen

Wonderful pictures! I always enjoy having a look here :)

Here is a quite different take. Two brothers on the dune at Urikaruus before sunrise. The hour before they were playing with some building parts of the new unit in the riverbed :lol:
