Beautiful shots and update, those Plains Camp Males are getting bigger in size,very impressive young males, interesting times ahead for the lion dynamics. Thanks

Yes, it is certainly going to be an interesting time ahead. The Plains Camp males are growing and with the vacant western region of Londolozi I am sure they will hang around for a little longer.

I don’t know Sean…those wild dog pups still look pretty cute and cuddly to me!! 😉 Amazing photos, all of them!

Glad to see Plaque Rock looking so beautiful! Did you ever find the beta female dog’s den site?

Sean Zeederberg
Blog Editor

Hi Lisa. Sadly, we believe that the beta female wild dog pups have been killed.

Oh nooo that is terribly sad.

Those two young Plain Camp males are stunning lions. Wonder what they are up to. Puppies are really getting bigger and bigger and now you can see the different personalities between them. Love the plague rock female foto and the one where she is lying on her rock. The cub of the Picadilly female is very inquisitive and makes sure it sees everyone and everything. Foto’s this week absolutely stunning and beautifully set out Sean, thanks for your hard work and all the people that took foto’s.

Oh my word, what an incredible variety of wonderful photos, well done to you all. I ‘ve added several to my Favourites but they are all stunning. And Plaque Rock (on Plaque Rock!) will always be one of my favourite leopards – I think when you see one as a playful cub,(2018) and then a year later as a newly independent adult, it is extra-special.

Sean Zeederberg
Blog Editor

Thank you, Suzanne. Having the Plaque Rock Female on Plaque Rock was an incredible sighting. I am so happy you have such an affinity towards her.

Stunning Pictures. The dog pups are still very cute.

Sean Zeederberg

Hi Christa, yes they are cute but now appearing more and more like their parents.

Fantastic selection of photos this week, especially that Kingfisher and the Piccadilly cub. It looks like the Plains Camp males will be a new force in the lion dynamics mix. From where did they originate?

Sean Zeederberg
Blog Editor

Hi Denise, thank you. I think the Plains Camp Males will hang around a little longer and hope that no larger males move through and push them out.

Always enjoy viewing TWIP. I have so many favorites this week that I just can’t pinpoint it to one, but I did add them to my favorites. I must say the one wild dog pup is loaded with ticks.

Sean Zeederberg
Blog Editor

Thank you, Linda. It was a great selection this week.
