Double headed wildebeest

A wildebeest about to give birth to its calf early in the morning at Ndutu. It was amazing to see how the mother kept walking until the very last moment to avoid becoming a target for predators. After the calf was born, in 1 to a max of 2 minutes it would stand and be able to run alongside its mother.
