The Sub Adult lion continue to grow, and are tending to partake more in the hunts, which their mother carries out. They too, have become extremely inquisitive in anything that moves, which is of interest to them. This week saw a very secretive animal being exposed, with the White Lion as well as the Pride in the Main Section of Pumba, killing Aardwolf.
This small little member of the Hyena Family spends a lot of its time looking for Termites which it either unearths itself or awaits mounds being disturbed by Aardvark. It is suspected that the Sub Adults killed it out of typical chase and chat, which is so often observed by adolescents, honing in their instincts, rather than an animal that would be consumed.
