The Mysterious Lioness

May 24, 2013

By Bob Poole - This mysterious lioness disappeared with our collared male lion for the last four days while his Satellite data went awry. We found him just in time to see her give him a playful slap in the face goodbye, and vanish into the tall grass and darkness. Such a shame, a collar on her would have led us to other males, her own sisters and eventually her cubs. The Gorongosa Lion Project plans to collar 5 more lions this year to learn more about this fragile lion population.
