Thanks for the stunning pics and weekly update. Whatever happened to the cub that had the swollen forehead – is he still around?

Hi Marion.

The cub is indeed still around and doing well. The forehead swelling was a cyst which has almost completely subsided. It is hard to distinguish the cub from the rest these days!

You have filled the bill this week – with the weirdest (caterpillar) to the cutest (chick) and the beautiful
Sparta Cub shot which simply glows and warms our hearts. Beautiful.

Another Friday with my sanity restored by your magnificent pictures of life in Londolozi. Next month cannot come soon enough for me.

Do you know what kind of caterpillar that is that looks like a leaf?

James T

Hi matthew,

we think it is of the Euthalia genus

Look closely, there are THREE cubs…the third off to the left, the head just showing atop the weeds, against the jeep. But then, I’m still looking for the chicks legs under the right wing.

Correct!

Well spotted, Merle! I didn’t give the pic a good look. This is the morning that I mentioned in the intro when only 3 of the cubs were found…

in the report of January 2013 i read this:
members Tsalala pride January 2013: MARTHLY PRIDE = 4
1 ADULT FEMALE 14 YEARS 5 MONTHS
2 ADULT FEMALES 10 YEARS 6 MONTHS
1 SUB ADULT FEMALE 1 YEAR 10 MONTH
is the other Sub still around or has the pride lost her??

Hi Mika
Correct, except there are two sub-adult females in the pride. One of them is currently in very bad shape and looks like she has been mauled by another lion.
We will keep you posted..

The caterpillar and the chick are my favourite. Thanks for the small things…

Hi, James
Your photographs give us so much pleasure – thank you. We were intrigued by that very odd caterpillar and wondered if you had identified it? The only vaguely similar one we could find in our Kruger Park butterfly book is Euphaedra neophron neophron, but the habitat isn’t right, so it can’t be that.
Thanks again for lifting our spirits!
Don and June

Hi Guys,

as far as we can tell, the caterpillar is of the Euthalia genus.Euthalia aconthea is a species of which we found a matching photo, but this species is native to India and southeast Asia, and as such the one we found would have to be an alien. Quite possibly our version is another species in the genus.

Hope you are both well!

Love the shot of the cub with the big ears! also is the Tsala Breakaways still around & are there still four? thnx

James T
Member

Tsalala breakaways are still around and there are still four of them. They are spending quite a bit of time west of our boundary on Othawa, and we believe at least two of them to have cubs…
