Fear

It was very early in the morning on my last day in the Mara. We left camp very early to try and spend a few hours with "Scarface", one of the most dominant male lions in the Mara. Suddenly we heard deep and low roaring that quickly became angry and loud. A single lioness had wandered into the territory of five lionesses and was being relentlessly punished for it. She tried to lay low in submission with fear apparent in her highly dilated pupils.
