Thandi continues to play the part of a beleaguered parent to her mischievous little cub. She was lying flat today, while her cub meandered around the den site. Her cub played on a tree for a bit, running around it and descending it while her mother looked on. A kill lay nearby but neither of the two appeared interested in it. The cub tried to suckle but Thandi shooed her away, possibly wanting some time to herself. Thandi looks quite tired, owing to her super energetic cub who continued to play close by.
In the evening, they were found again, this time with a fresh kill. Thandi had an impala head tucked in her jaws. She called out to her cub and the two disappeared with the head into the brush. They were later found again, drinking from an algae strewn pool in a cute display.
