LIONS GUARDING THEIR ELEPHANT KILL, HWANGE NATIONAL PARK, ZIMBABWE
These Lions had recently killed a juvenile Elephant (second photo). They are guarding their kill from scavengers and other predators. We noticed that there were vultures and jackals (see next post) in the area, waiting for the Lions to depart after they were finished with their kill. They did not go near the dead Elephant while the Lions were there.
