Good to the Last Scrap

The sub-adults of this pride were the last to feed on what remained of this kudu. By the time we got to them they were literally scraping whatever they could off the bones. Though formidable enough, sub-adult lions are not successful hunters like their mothers. Their hunts are often for practice and they will be allowed to feed on the kills made by the fully grown females of the pride.
