Anyway, let me ask you: N’tsevu pride, how many members he currently counts? Best Regards

Great photo of the lion cub, Sean. Also enjoyed the nursing giraffe. On a previous trip, one of our friends had inquired about how a baby nurses, given the image we had seen of the manner in which a giraffe must contort its body to drink from a waterhole. Now we know!
