Honeymooners

What! No privacy! We caught these two in the throes of passion. Well, at least the male - she looked disinterested. We wondered what sweet nothings he was whispering in her ear. We were told that when the female is in heat, the couple will leave the pride for a few days alone and take care of business. He also had a huge, fresh wound on his neck. We also wondered if this was the price he paid for this privilege.
