I had promised to post here a picture of Olive with her cub. The above picture was taken at the Talek river on 15/8/09 courtesy of Mara Intrepids guest Evelyne Meijssen
Olive ws een mating with a male a few days ago as per my previous post. this new development has casued us confused because we have since seen her with cubs yet we thoguht for moment maybe they were dead. Her story since she last year has been a very unusal one after she managed to live with her two litters. it took me and a friend, Federico, a professional photgrapher and Mara resident, quite sometimes to figure out what wa s going on. we first thought the young cub Kali belonged to Ayah.
I will keep updating you on Olive as we try to understand this interesting behaviour.
