No4, of 4 so far, in series on Kruger National Park. To see series search for "kpseries".
On our last day in the Kruger park we came across these lions near Skukuza rest camp. Again the sun roof came in handy to gigapan wild life. The first gigapan of lions in the wild?
Lions live for around 10–14 years in the wild, while in captivity they can live over 20 years. In the wild, males seldom live longer than ten years as fights with rivals occasionally cause injuries. They typically inhabit savanna and grassland, although they may take to bush and forest. Lions are unusually social compared to other cats. A pride of lions consists of related females and offspring and a small number of adult males. Groups of female lions typically hunt together, preying mostly on large ungulates. The lion is an apex and keystone predator, although they will scavenge if the opportunity arises. While lions do not typically hunt humans selectively, some have been known to become man-eaters and seek human prey.—Wikipedia—
