Safaris in Pench National Park.2.

There were four of them… three males and one female. One male growled his 驶welcome始 and then this female came out towards us. She stayed for a photo shoot and then retired for a sleep. It was totally awesome! They were large animals even though they were only 13 months old. Their mother had obviously gone off to hunt somewhere nearby – and she must be a very good   

hunter to raise four healthy cubs. She is the sole provider for five animals.
