Bon appétit!!!

Good morning everyone, the eland are slowly disappearing into the dunes again, looks like they had enough of all the lions. Last week at Houmoed waterhole a single male lion caught 3 eland and devoured it over a period of 24 hours. Also, Luna was attacked, by what looks like lion, but she is walking ok, so hopefully no permanent damage. It is difficult for other predators drinking water when the lions just park off at all the waterholes waiting for the eland to come drink. Here, one of the southern males is pulling out the stomach of an eland it just caught, enjoy and see you soon.

  1. Good pictures !
    but i can’t figure out how a single lion, that is supposed to eat 60 kg per day at max, could eat 3 elands in 24 hours…

  2. Hi Ojeff, Well, he didnt eat the whole eland, only the tasty bits, and it was’nt adult eland, all young eland. But he did finished them all at the end. He could barely walk! Cheers!
