Tinyo was found lumbering through Thandi’s territory, sniffing the air as he honed in on Thandi’s kill resting in a tree. He at first passed by it, but then returned later. Tinyo slinked under the tree for a few moments, bobbing up and down, looking prepared to jump. He then did so, ungracefully clambering into the tree. He grabbed the carcass and jumped to the ground with it, having claimed the prize.
Tinyo was found again, lying on the Vuyatela dam wall. He rested there for sometime before he jumped off and moved onto Twin Dams Road. He looked a bit skinny, but otherwise seemed in good condition. He wandered down the road for a while before crossing south into Little Gowrie.
Tinyo was found later in the day, this time with a cub. The cub was playing with Tinyo, pouncing on him and biting his ear. Tinyo was very relaxed with it, easily putting up with the cub’s antics, showing him as quite a good family guy. The rest of the pride was on the move, with all five females present including Amber Eyes. They drank from a pan and then went flat for a long while before getting up again.
