National Geographic: Lions of the African Night


in their search for the bulbs, roots,

and bark on which they live.

The lions have trapped a warthog

in its burrow.

It's a prize they cannot resist, and

they will dig until they unearth it.

Fierce and frantic,

the warthog in its burrow lunges

with its sharp tusks

as the digging lions.

But with such odds against it,

the outcome is inevitable.

But only a lucky few get a meal

from such small prey.

The others search the ground

for scraps.

A hungry lioness returns

to the demolished burrow

for a last hopeful search

before the pride moves on.

A black roach digs the hole

where she'll place the package of eggs

she carries attached to her abdomen.

The only maternal care she gives

her progeny is now

as she carefully conceals

their position

disguising the site

with pebbles and vegetation.

Parental care is more developed

in this large centipede.

The female carries her young

about with her.

While she devours a grasshopper,

her offspring life packed securely

against her body,

held in place by her many legs.

Other centipedes protect and tend

their young in burrows under stones.

But in addition,

this species can carry hers.

She holds them high above the ground

and walks on her remaining legs.

Centipedes too have predators,

and this tiny snake is a specialist,

feeding on them almost exclusively.

Holding on grimly,

the snake appears unaffected

by the many bites it receives

from the centipede.

The snake's venom takes effect

and the centipede is overcome.

The little snake is able to swallow

centipedes almost twice the diameter

of its own body.

It always seems to start with the head

One of the cubs has an injured leg

and lags behind the behind the pride.

The pride does not wait for her

and she struggles to keep up.

A civet is more at home on the ground,
