Guess who walked through camp? A pair of lions that were mating!!
We were fortunate to witness the mating since the gestation period is 105-110 days and they only go into heat every 18 months or so. Mating lasts 3-4 days but they do it every 8 – 30 minutes over those few days.
Here’s the male and, based on the scratches on his face, he’s been in a few fights.
She’s a beauty and we should all have teeth is such fine shape.
The act takes a mere 10-15 seconds and then he roars at climax time 🙂
And then they get up and move to a new spot and do it again.
