ABOUT "KINDRED SPIRIT"
Lola's two cubs play with one of their mother, Lola’s cousins (Kito's daughter) on top of a termite mound at sunset.
These two cubs are absolute terrors, never missing an opportunity to find a high vantage point, climb on their mother, or stalk the tail of one of the other pride members as they look for a place to settle down for the day.
Sadly, during the month I spent following them, the young male cub disappeared. There was a noticeable closeness among the pride in the days after, but it wasn’t long before the final remaining cub was back causing mischief. Lola’s final cub is still going strong and will no doubt be a future leader in the Marsh Pride.
