The lioness saw a young, dirty animal in the middle of the plain. Native American tour guides silently observed.
What followed also took them by surprise. A female lioness brought back a solitary antelope to the group. The crowd scattered as a little foal emerged from the woods and tentatively made its way toward the lion.
Because of his extreme innocence, the little horse didn’t even notice the lion’s scent.
When the antelope came close, the lioness appeared stumped, so she just remained there for a while. The lion’s adaptability belies the fact that it is a hypercarnivore.
Possibly she wasn’t hungry since the lioness had just eaten.
Although animal rights advocates would disagree, there are many who think Mother Nature has emerged victorious.
Another lioness in our park probably had a cub around 10 years ago, according to a park spokeswoman. That is to say, this kind of thing happens very often.
The lioness then moved the foal closer to the rest of the herd before leaving. The baby antelope’s day was filled with success. It seems unlikely that a male lion would act like a female.
