That could cost him his life. To be isolated and all alone with all those predators around in the crater!They usually have a herd mentality. But well i guess,he must be an adolescent.

He was mostly just stubborn I think. He plopped down in the middle of the road when his herd was crossing and wouldn't move. We eventually went around him.
