Masai Mara Trip October 2007

Predators

As you can imagine there are many predators in the Mara.We saw and have photos of hyena, mongoose, bat- eared fox, jackals, serval, and the rare caracal. I even had a mongoose visit my tent one night as he pitter pattered around the sides. I did not know what it was at first, and when I looked out the screen he was looking right at me. After 3 seconds he took off, and I never heard back from him again.

This page will link to the 3 primary predators we encountered. Within each section I have picked out the photos that show some of their more active behavior. I want to depict them as we saw them in their natural environment, and something more than you will see in a zoo.


 

Cheetah

 

 

Lion

This is the same lion in the Disney movie African Cats. They call him Fang in the movie,

we called him Snaggletooth.

 

Leopard
