Lion

Panthera leo

Habitat:

Serengeti, Tanzania

Notes:

While we were watching this lioness she jumped down from the tree & attacked a herd of wildebeest, killing one right in front of us. Unfortunately the kill kicked up so much dust it was impossible to photograph. Bizarrely, once she had made the kill, the rest of the herd stayed & watched her eat (the final photo).
