African Safari (Kenya) Pt. 20
I am always amused by how frequently worn out sport cliches are so inappropriately thrown around by people. The felines of Masai Mara offer up the perfect opportunity to put this to the test. So here goes. It is “the story within the story” or as Paul Harvey would have said, “And here is the rest of the story.”
Why is this lioness so pissed?
Because her good-for-nothing son won’t leave the den and get his own digs. And if that is not enough to boil her butt, he thinks he is going to continue eating at her table. I don’t think so!! Time to move out.
And why is this young Lion so miffed?
Well, just possibly, it might have something to with our Rover almost running over his bed in the tall dew covered grass at dawn’s early light.
And who is this Leopard hanging out with in the tree fort?
Well, it just happens to be his lunch, the young Impala he dragged up the tree for safe keeping.
What is a house cat doing out in the middle of the Masai Mara in Kenya?
Well, actually this is the very elusive Serval Cat searching for small rodents.
And for whom is this guy so anxiously waiting?
Well, it is his slower moving and slightly battered brother.
Are you alright?
No, I am not moving! Maybe I am just not ready to take over the pride from that old man.
