Hey, did you see this?
Oh, sorry, I misread it.

Given that the lioness is so skinny, does this mean she did not hunt while they were together?

If this is the same one I read aboutlast week; while the lioness slept along came a male lion and had the antelope for lunch. The lioness was powerless to stop it.

My husband and I had an encounter with a mountain lion in Northern Calif. a few years ago. It was an awesome experience. We were frightened and fascinated at the same time.
Re: This story. Wonder if this lioness lost a cub. The article doesn't say.
Very interesting, Smilodon.
Not a lamb.

Wow, that Lioness is in really bad shape. She might want to quit walking around with her dinner and eat it.
All I can say is that it's a good thing it isn't a lamb.
Good report and photos. I read the other article several days ago. Said after the lioness discovered that the male lion had killed her oryx she stalked around him roaring at him. Imagine the poor male. He had to be thinking "what?" with that look on his face that all married men have when they have somehow displeased the goddess when they thought they were doing something good.
So the Lioness has a screw loose?? Looking to adopt an Oryx after eating its mother? =o)
