Shadow the Silent Slayer
A mammoth effort from one of our coalition male Lions – Shadow, has managed to bring down a huge Eland bull.
He has been on the kill for the last few days with hundreds of kilograms of meat at his paws. We estimate shadow to be around 220-230kg’s but that is tiny compared to the possible 700 – 800 Kg Eland bull in picture. We cannot imagine he can eat anymore without his stomach bursting, but tonight he gave it five minutes.
It was a nice change to see him active instead of sleeping with a full tummy. He has done well to keep other scavengers off so far to have this feast all to himself – we wonder for how long…
