'Serengeti friends'
On a recent trip to the Serengeti National Park, when the fading light was begining to clothe the landscape in an evening glow,
I luckily came across these two magnificent young lions. As in so many parks in East Africa, lions have become used to the passing
visitor and as I began to sketch these two, they came up to the Landrover,
sat down behind it and fell asleep in the shade. They stayed there for half an hour. David Shepherd

It is said that cats have nine lives, but they don't say that about the Serengeti lion. Life is hard and precarious on this unforgiving landscape, and dead is dead. For the greatest of African predators as well as for their prey, life spans tend to be short, more often terminating abruptly than in graceful decline. An adult male lion, if he's lucky and durable, might attain the advanced age of 12 in the wild. Adult females can live longer, even to 19. Life expectancy at birth is much lower, for any lion, if you consider the high mortality among cubs, half of which die before age two. But surviving to adulthood is no guarantee of a peaceful demise. For a certain young male, black-maned and robust, known to researchers as C-Boy, the end seemed to have arrived on the morning of August 17, 2009.
